I feel like we might be getting a little too ahead of ourselves on this one.
It’s nice to be prepared, otherwise we’re preparing to fail as the saying goes, but I feel on this matter we should be taking things one step at a time.
Lewis Grabban has certainly been a great acquisition for Nottingham Forest since he first moved to the City Ground in the summer of 2018, scoring 34 goals in just 77 appearances for the Reds, making his reported fee of £6m seem like an absolute bargain.
His goals have been a key reason why Forest are have been in the upper echelons of the league for a large part of the season and fighting for promotion.
Should we keep Lewis Grabban?
But what happens when and if we do get promoted? Will his goals be enough for us to survive in the Premier League? Well that’s what @CityGroundHQ wanted to find out yesterday whether or not Grabban would work for us as our main forward in the division, or if we would need to ‘upgrade’, and there seemed to be a rather mixed response from the fans on the matter.
He's a work horse, if his fitness levels remain good he'd be great in a prem squad

I don’t think there should be any question of Grabban getting his chance in the prem, he is an instinctive finisher, supply him with chances he will put them away in any league. I’d back him to be a consistent starter in the prem any day

He’s a Championship striker, we’d need to upgrade 🔴⚪️

Nowhere good enough now

Would do a job as long as the service was there

Grabban is a natural finisher – If he gets the service he will put them away – at any level ⚽️

In possession he’s tidy and his movement/instinct to be in the right place at the right time is so natural. Plus he can finish. His conversion rate this season is top class. Feed the Grabbs and he will score

What about you? Do you think we would need to upgrade if we were promoted?
