    hopefully he’ll be given a good run and then we can judge him. He has obviously got talent but at his age he will still be a little inconsistent.

    Good news, one of the most talented players at the club and it'd be daft to let him go without giving him a proper chance. He's done well on loan and been ignored by the manager when he's been back at Sunderland.

    Let's hope so. You don't hear bad things about this lad, so it feels like time to give him more of a try

    He'll be about 23 now, so no longer a youngun really, but he's had a few injuries, and a lot of people really rate him. Good luck lad.

    I thought he was older than 21, by what others have said recently.

    What is meant by not a great first impression?

    I hope I'm wrong but everytime I have seen him play he has been poor and seems injury prone

    Hope he can take a better free kick than the one he took yesterday, it was awful, it is so annoying when the player can't even get it over the first man

    Same here, apart from a short spell in one home game, I fail to see what he offers and as you say he does seem to get his fair share of injuries. Also at age 21/ 23 he needs to be showing more than he has or if we can get any cash at all for him then we should sell. No room for sentiment i`m afraid.

    He is only 21 just to clear that up.

    He's had bad luck with injuries and as a result hasn't had enough of a run in the side to show what he can do but he looks a talent to me. For example he's completely two footed, how many players in the premier league can say that let alone league one?

    As the saying goes football is all about opinions and I just don't see a player in there that justifies the hype. I would love him to prove me wrong but I just can't see it based on what I've seen already

    That was pathetic. Our set pieces were terrible all evening.

    Tbh I'm not 100% certain that Grigg actually has feet.

    How the hell have we ended up with that group of forwards I would actually swap them with any other 3 forwards even down to park players I can’t quite understand how they are even footballers its like a horrendous night mare you hope you will wake up from.

    It'll get better mate. Just a blip in the grand scheme of things. Lee, Kristjaan and Kyril will sort out a decent forward.
