Let’s cut to the chase, shall we?
Lewis Grabban has been sensational for us this season. He really has. With 17 goals in 36 appearances for us, the 32-year-old has been one of the outstanding candidates for the Reds’ player of the season.
The Jamaican striker has been one of the stars of the season. His relentlessness in front of goal has impressed the City Ground faithful, some even compared him to the great Stan Collymore. The manager recognises this and was particularly thrilled with his showing against Cardiff City, after our 1-0 win at the Cardiff City Stadium last month.
Even the great Kenny Burns had something good to say about them. The praise has been endless. Maybe I’m drawing a clear enough picture about my feelings on Grabban? He’s incredible.
Should we keep Lewis Grabban?
His work rate has been incredible and his attacking contributions have been much better than most of his teammates, with an average of 2.2 shots per game, only Joe Lolley betters this, who is another important player for us.
The former Norwich City and Bournemouth striker will be disappointed that the season has stuttered to a halt with just nine games to go, after the EFL postponed the season after the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to take a grip of the UK and its general operations.
If we manage to reach the promised land of the Premier League next season, and that still remains as a big ‘if’, we will need Grabban in Lamouchi’s side without a doubt.
I just hope that he gets some quality alongside him in the striking department. As I previously said, Mbaye Diagne would be great to replace Sammy Ameobi.
