Off the FWL site... Grosicki has a fan...
Totally agree with him by the way...
“I think £4 million is an absolute bargain for a player of Grosicki’s quality and Hull City should demand that or more if they are to be persuaded to sell him this summer.
Obviously Jarrod Bowen got a lot of the praise for Hull last season and rightly so, but Grosicki was an extremely influential player too and his contribution to the team should not be underestimated.
“Grosicki scored nine goals for Hull in the Championship last season and also provided twelve assists – that’s the same number as Pablo Hernandez and that surely speaks for itself.
“The winger has also got plenty of experience in the Championship and is a regular international with Poland, one of the better sides in Europe.
I'm not so sure £4m is a bargain price for Grosiki. A big part of his game is pace and as he's now 31 he's going lose that pace very soon and when that happens, it normally happens very suddenly.
A couple of strikers wouldnt go amiss
Blimey two incoming on the same day. Keep it up.
Welcome Ryan. Nice to see this one over the line. He has had an impressive trial and its nice to have a couple of new players with that added height....Onwards and Upwards?
Credit begrudgingly where its due, we've no idea if the 4 lads we've signed are any good, but they've age on their side and it's mid July, a huge improvement on the last few windows, tho let's face it the bar was low....

THIRTEEN of the #hcafc first team squad are out of contract next summer. City have 1 year options on at least 8 of them but that has the potential to be a car crash! Need to start thinking about new deals long before we usually do.
Out of contract in 2020 are Batty, Bowen, Dicko, Grosicki, Henriksen, Irvine, Kingsley, Lichaj, MacDonald, McKenzie, Stewart and Toral plus obviously Bowler who is only on loan. #hcafc
1 year options to activate - Bowen, Irvine, Kingsley, Licahaj, MacDonald & Stewart
Offer new contracts - Batty & McKenzie (both deserve new deals as they've proven to be good enough since stepping up from the under 23's)
Release - Dicko, Grosicki, Henriksen & Toral.
Dicko hasnt been good enough, Grosicki wont sign a new deal if offered, I think he actually has a 1 year clause that he can activate if he wants, Henriksen wont sign a new deal, & Toral also hasnt been consistent enough, down to being injured all the time.
Would anyone do it differently?
Eaves..Tafazolli...Bowler. Those are three excellent signings and provide us extra depth in critical areas. Eaves the big front man we've been lacking for years, who can actually score goals with both feet and strong in the air. Tafazolli a big CH, very good in the air, who can back up or replace the injury prone DeWijs. And Bowler, a young exciting talent on the wing, similar to Harry Wilson. If we keep Grosicki we'll be a real threat up front despite (probably) losing Bowen.
Pretty much the same except I’m not sure about MacDonald who has also spent most of his time at City injured. With a really small squad you need robust players.
True, I just think MacDonald deserves a chance. He's been out for a long time but thats not down to him being injury prone, a blood clot's just very unfortunate. Id imagine he's on affordable wages too as we signed him in the championship.
I think these signings are good news. Ok, they might not get us promoted but a young, hungry team might provide better entertainment than a team of has-beens and prima donnas just after a last payday.
I like how he comes across!
Interesting to see what he'll bring
Very nice comments from Bowler. I like his attitude. He looks very hungry for success and I hope he can have a great season. Good to see this window attracting some players who are really keen to play football with City. Terry seems to be getting some of his top targets.
I’m pleased we finally disagree on something!
