I don't think there's any hiding from what a poor season he had for us in 14/15 compared to his previous, seriously under-performed. No great surprise to see a new manager bring in another GK. Just the way football goes sometimes. 

He's been absolutely class every time I've seen him this year though, so fair play to him for that. Good pro, never seemed to kick up a fuss at being number two here. Maybe we'll see a few more of our outgoings who take on a new challenge step up to the plate like Granty has done.

Very true he had a poor end to that season but I'm sure I've read somewhere that he was playing with injury. I also think any back 5 is likely to be exposed and make costly errors with no protection in front of them - we finished that season with all three CDMs (even our flimsy Spanish one) out injured, but continued to play a style that pretended we still had one anyway,

Can't say I lose much sleep over him leaving considering we replaced him with a goalkeeper just as good, and we received a good fee for him.

I like Lee Grant. Solid stopper and a good pro. One of those who'll probably return as a coach one day.

You're right, was injured.

Also have no complaints over selling him, as you say just as good as Carson, take your pick, both are top keepers to have, can't keep them both happy. 

Just another example of a player being harshly written off by so many, no understanding at all that all footballers go through good/bad patches of form.

Quick to shout get rid like players are somehow easily disposable.

Anyhow, pleased for him.

I am struck by the amazing facial resemblance of @David and Lee. Were you his white twin, separated at birth?

Jason Statham and Lee Grant in the same day, not sure if I should be flattered or not, feel like I've gone under some Gok Wan online makeover I wasn't aware of.

I have been follicly challenged for years now, being sheared isn't new. Although I must say I have taken control and this is not completely out of my hands. I made myself more aero dynamic to get to the toilet quicker.

Came out at the end of that season that he was injured but the manager insisted on playing him. Made Granty look poor when it was a terrible decision to play him.

Terrible keeper.....was poor all season. 

Credit to him if he has turned his form around but i wouldn't want him back.
