Music to the ears
Yesterdays surprise article with Lee Griffith’s was a great bit of media by the club.
Out of all the players to grab and sit down with Griff woulda been many fan’s choice, to get a feel of what we can expect out of our bhoy this coming campaign and what tone he himself imparted. Hows he look ?
In a slow news week it was the right choice as some pre scripted PR stunt woulda been seen through immediately. Good of the club to set the tone and give fans something to smile about and look forward to .
Lee was well spoken and genuine. It couldn’t have went better.
He is raring to go and had his love for the game and the faithful reinvigorated by certain recent events he admits. One of these events was the gaffer returning..which he knew would help.
He’s quality when he’s on top of his game. Very underestimated especially by foreign opponents he has bag’s of natural talent and a footballing brain but knows himself he must overcome a non athletic physique and has struggled off field issues for a while.
I’m glad the article focussed on the positives and gives off a very supportive vibe of a man who thankfully got the help he needed ,and now wants to repay that help and support that came alongside it.
I seen the video of his return,,we all did,,and it was raucous indeed but it’s clear what it meant to the young man now after reading his thoughts about it ,, and I didn’t get at the time just how special it was but for the kitman to say the best he’s ever seen. Wow !
I thought Izzy’s return after a broken leg was special btw.
Well every one of you deserve a pat on the back for a new revived and refreshed Griff may well again land the big goals that usually lead to silverware.
Lenny had previously intimated that he wished more play through his “striker’s“ and now here we have Lee admitting that he envisions being ahead of big Eddy and making runs for him.
Now that is indeed tasty where I sit as both are very intelligent players each with a good burst of pace,,,a deadly combination.
Last season we had the meanest defence in the division and it brought us league glory.
With that department also undergoing a refurb we might look to the front to take up the mantle more and perhaps go for outgunning the rest of the league ?
This is far from impossible with these two .
Couple that with a rumoured move for last seasons top scorer out of the country and there could be cause for opTIMism that we might we able to forge a dynamic duo to lead us onwards and upwards.
Little and large ? Hey I always liked the combination personally since Niall Quinn and Kevin Phillips terrorized defence after defence but it is very old fashioned .
With Lee being the line leader one cannot imagine a crossing game,,the throughball or over the top would seem more likely no?
But then in winter on the potato patches we sometimes come up against,,not to mind the lazy sods with flags would can flag those through runs offside all day long,,will that be a feasible plan?
The both know where the goal is which is nice but we’ve seen strikers paired before that have not gelled.
Good news is Lenny seems well respected and will hopefully look forward to getting a hold of them both on the training pitch to see want type of Frankenstein he can whip up to go attack defenders with.
Its just great news to have young Griff back in the hunt,, I would not wanna face him,,he’s a cracker and we are best with him in our side and a head focused on his game.
With young Mikey also looking promising we now have three good strikers to start the season with .
Boom Boom Bayo has youth on his side but we need to actually see him to judge him,,funny that. He might be a great number 4 striker coming in after injury ?
We might well end up needing each one of them to step upto the plate if we are going to defend successfully ,, but Griff’s word’s are music to the ears’s.
Give him minute’s and watch him repay the trust with goal after goal.
Whats the chance’s we are saying “ get it to Griff ! “ soon ?
Welcome back Lee ! Just what the doctor ordered !
