Confirmed Signing Demarai Gray

He hasn't been and we're most likely not going to give him anything resembling consistent playing time where he might be able to rectify it.
You’ve started already and we haven’t had the first game of the season yet. If he doesn’t get consistent game time for us and didn’t at his previous clubs then there’s probably a reason for that - he’s not good enough to do it consistently at a team with European aspirations. Though I have to say, with our current business, not sure what our aspirations are headed…

Not even what I meant. There's no reason to play in front of Richarlison unless he shows something but it's also hard to see him being consistent while watching from the bench every week. It's what happened with Kean. No one is in the wrong.

That’s fair although don’t like your odds with the scenario you describe. Particularly on a three year deal. I’d stay away from the casino if I were you, could be dangerous!
I'm up like $400 this year ;)

Ideally we would be taking on players that aren't so much of a gamble. Or like when we signed Richarlison barely one at all. But always upside. If he can't be better in 3 years than the day we signed him we shouldn't be doing it.

I follow football to regulate excess serotonin.
I like that it could work out. I think taking shots at players with upside should basically be the only thing we do.
This. Just win, baby.

I didn't know Leicester had this many fans, Gray must be world class if so many of them are bothered about us signing him.
No one is bothered. You are so missing the point. If you hadn’t noticed he didn’t leave us for you, he left us over 6 months ago to Leverkusen.

I think the Leicester fans on here are just curious as to why you signed him, particularly on a 3 year deal.

But hey, hopefully he sees this as his last chance and turns it round.

FWIW I quite enjoy going on other (some at least) fans forums and reading stuff, particularly if there’s a link….

But in Prem terms its as low risk as you can get. If he turns his career around like Albrighton, its great. If he really flopped, he can be relatively easily be loaned/shipped out to the Championship and hope he plays well for a permanent deal, which would probably involve a million or two.
