Thread: Jorge Grant

    The one who I like the look of most from our young crop. He has an inner assurity which for me means he can keep stepping up through the levels.

    Sack the keeper. Jorge scores from 18 yards out and he got nowhere near any of them. Pah.

    I'd love to see him get a proper run.. We're struggling to create and he seems to offer something different when he plays. GG and Vaughn in midfield with Grant in front of them, surely it must be in Dougie's mind..

    Ben Osborn failed to score against the same keeper https://youtu.be/jt7z10u0adI

    I've always been a big fan and want to see him get much more game time.

    As an attacking midfielder, he's brilliant. The past 3 times I've seen him play in the first team he's been such a bright spark and burst of energy. I wouldn't be against giving him a start, although I'd start him at home first.

    Another great product from our Academy. We must be doing something right at Forest.

    An attacking central midfielder, unfortunately that doesn't fit into Dougie's plans.. The only people expected to attack are the two wide men and the one up front...

    After the treatment Walker got, I'd be more inclined to blood youngsters away from home from now on. Less pressure etc.

    exactly there is people on here stating they dont care about our position they want us to play attacking football and play the youth. can gaurantee with youth its gonna be a learning curve and they will have off days but will they cut them any slack?

    Theres a difference between playing a kid that wants it and a kid that is going through the motions. Hopefully someone will have a word with walker with the examples of benny if you apply yourself or pato if you act like a knob.

    It isnt a long career and i think we all want the kids that come through to do well, whether thats for us or with someone else and someone paying us a hefty fee.

    Grant has showed more in those 3 games I saw him in than Walker has all season. Everyone has an off game, but that was ridiculous. I did find it strange how Walker is an out and out striker yet he was brought in to replace the wide man Ward. No wonder he does better in the u21's, they play him in the position he's comfortable in.

    Thought Grant looked good again yesterday in the little time he was given. Would like to see him get more game time in the coming weeks.

    Why not start him off Olive? He's looked good and full of energy and endeavour every time he's played this season.. I just can't get my head around him not getting a start at the moment. And you know when he does get a start it'll be alongside Dex rather than Olive!

    I feel for him but at 22 he does need to start taking bigger strides. He goes down to u21 level and he needs to show that he is the go to guy to score goals and create goals and while he does well he just isn't dominating enough to say I am a Forest first team footballer.

    Last season when Walker and Burke were absent it was apparent the u21s missed goal threat. Even though we have u18 players in the u21s we just haven't looked threatening enough still.

    Think Grant will be going on loan in his last year of contract to try and prove he can make it in professional football ?

    Because it makes much more sense, long-term, to play guys on short-term loans that won't be here next season and to ignore our home grown talent. It's a great plan that's taken us forward over the last three seasons. Why would anyone within the club contemplate trying something different?

    Is he really 22? I thought he was much younger than that?

    He just needs a run in a side and a bit of snap down him.

    Controversial but I dont rate him from what I've seen compared to burke or walker (admittedly first team only) imo he needs some creatine down him.

    I agree, but poor planning sees us with a manager with no motive to play youth, he aint got an eye on the future, he just wants to win games.

    We should be looking to next season now with Grant & Burke.

    Couldn't agree more BR. Yesterday was the perfect example - he was full of little twists, turns & flicks but never looked threatening & certainly didn't stand out as an overage player.

    I'd personally rate Grant above both Walker and Burke, as I feel for his position he's closer to being a finished product than those two who still have a lot to learn.
