A search on t'Internet brings up a 32 year old French winger. A while since we've had a "Frenchman" at the club.

Lets hope he's changed his attitude as he's got (a lot) older!

From Wiki:-

'Subsequently though, Grandin was not included for five matches, after scoring his first goal, and trained with the club’s development squad. Manager Holloway explained his reason for leaving out Grandin as being a bad attitude'.

Mickael Buscher-esque spell at Shrewsbury.

Was a decent player, although hasn't played a huge amount recently... Currently playing in Réunion just off Madagascar - maybe wants to come back closer to France? Hopefully his legs haven't gone.

Why would you think his legs have gone just because he is 32?  There are loads of players in the Premier League and the EFL who are over 30 and still have 'legs'.  I don't get this constant tirade about players over 30.

Goes with the obsession over local lads. Seems a lot of people prefer their lads young and supple. Anyone over 25 is deemed too old  .

There is also a strong possibility that Ethan Robson will return to #gtfc on loan if Sunderland make another signing in the next couple of days.

Edit..they have just(last night) signed midfielder Josh Scowen from QPR

Would love to have Robson back but struggling to understand why we need another winger at this point. Given players are queuing up to join us I was hoping for an experienced midfield player but like any signing will have to wait and see him perform before passing judgment just seems odd after getting the lad in from Brighton.

Evidently he also plays centre mid too, maybe we might see one or two go out in the next few days.

See my link to the blog, looks like he's far more than a winger, another creative player, Holloway certainly increasing around in his attempts to bring in more creativity

Really think we need a striker (and possibly a defender/full back as back up too).

Cook, Cardwell and Rose are injured, Ogbu has gone...we're really light in numbers. Green is apparently coming back and we've now got Hanson back, but if one of those has a relapse, we're pretty much copulated for firepower.

I suppose being 19th in league 2 is having an effect.  Once we are safe we will have big plans for next season when the standard of player we all want will materialise.
All the time the manager will have a better idea of what is needed for next season's promotion challenge.

What Ollie is looking at is who can take in his master plan and be rewarded with a new contract and a ice cream and those who needs to move on whether they have a contract for next year or not.

So for now he will bring in some players until the end of the season and then splash out in the summer with the extra money he and JF have put in.

There will be a few ins and outs but we will be stronger and wiser next year so worth having a bob or two on Town now before we get to be odds on favourites to go up.

  If Holloway has a top half budget for next season, I am pretty confident he can put together a serious promotion challenge, but if not I wouldn't expect miracles from any manager. So much comes down to budgets when all the talking is done.

Ive just been looking at his 'playing' career and I see he has been released/had contracts cancelled by clubs on 5 occasions during his career. Doesnt bode well.

Marseille dropped him first, then Ollie's Blackpool, then signed on a free by Ollie at Crystal Palace, then 4 months later by Tony Pulis at CP, then Blackpool again, and finally Shrewsbury.

Enjoy him while he's here

Well he might have done if he'd stuck at it

If he can get past the "Holloway run", then he could be fit enough to pop in half a dozen goals and some assists !

Perhaps seen as an impact player off the bench?

He’s played in the Champions league, Europa league, Premier League and Ligue 1. If he’s fit and bothered he might be quite exciting.

My only concern is that he's had more clubs than Tiger Woods...do like the sound of him if Holloway can get a tune out of him though...

This will be the 3rd time Ollie has signed him. He clearly rates the guy so why shouldn’t we?

You'd never have guessed you love Europe Kingston... 😅

As for Grandin; a stopgap to bulk out the squad and bring competition for places till the end of the Season at which point Ollie can seek out more long term options?

And/or reward Grandin with another year if he's proved himself useful?

Ollie's been thrust into a job with an immediate brief window, he might be lumping for faces that are tried and trusted with him without having the time to do full due diligence on everybody he doesn't know personally given the shirt time frame available and all his many other tasks to be on with.

Im sure our scouting network isn't extensive!

Like with every project there are short term and long term goals.  This signing is to give the fans a taste of the exciting players and football to come.

I am sure there is a long list of more long term signings to follow in the summer as he builds a team for us to be proud of.

Obviously being in the basement division means we will have to be a bit realistic of the standard of player even Ian Holloway will attract but if he can't turn the tide who can?

One of my best mates is a Blackpool fan and he's amazed that we're in for him. Said he was class on his day in the Prem and the Championship. Did say he's not a L2 type player and that he doesn't know how he's done over recent years.

Vardy is now 33 and still full of running.

Can we add Grandin to our list of CL players who have played against us?  He will play against the team in training. 😀

Quoted from rancido



I think Grandin will be a similar situation to Clarke - a contract until the end of the season and if you prove yourself then another season. I have it on very good authority that Clarke wanted 18 months but Ollie said "prove yourself and we'll see".


Alternatively he may only want a short term holiday in the U.K. and then buzz off again to sunnier climes.

Billy Clarke signing was met with a touch of derision from some quarters but has been a fantastic signing so far.

And to conclude the WWII discussion if I may be so bold 😬, might I just say that if wasn't for that bloody Hitler fella GTFC, who were established and sometimes one of the top sides in the top tier (fifth in 1935 was it?), might have cemented themselves in the upper echelons a bit more who knows?

As it stood our superstars players were either too old or lost to war come 1945 and we immediately dropped down the divisions.

Though of course the millions of grieving families, the Jewish community etc got much more pertinent reasoning to dislike him than the effects on a game of kicking a pigs bladder between the two sticks...

But I thought post the age of 30 and especially 32 everybody's legs go? 🤔

The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

Rumour suggests he’s set to land in the UK around 1330 and go to Tranmere for a two week ‘training camp’ on the Wirral. What? You thought we’d pay for direct flights for him?

He was pretty much signed to be a translator, Newell realised he was crap (which is flipping amazing considering some of the people he had in the first team) and then he was released early.

The only player I can recall refusing to play was that pro bench warmer Montgomery who didn't want to step up when Barnes was dropped because he felt he "wasn't good enough to play". He has sinced swapped football for cricket.

Doesn't look like Grandin will be happening now we're at this late stage and Ollie saying he thought it would all be sorted out on Thursday.

Maybe he's regretting putting his name out there earlier in the week if someone has gazumped us.

Still time though, so you never know.

I don’t think they’ve got IH doing the website updates to be honest. He wouldn’t have time between school visits.

If he's a free agent at 11PM then the deadline is irrelevant. We could sign him tomorrow.

Has he actually signed on the dotted line? I always thought it had to be done in person rather than over the Internet.

Makes you wonder which will arrive first


Brexit


or


Grandin

14 minutes and counting

I think that was what time someone took a screen grab. You can see in the top corner of the photo when he posted the picture. The sky would be pitch black if he was still flying

Think we can say that on transfer deadline day we have brought in 2 players with alot of pace and athletisism. Something we have been missing apart from maybe Vernam and Wright.

Can only add to and help our attacking options

Interesting that he's been talked about as a winger, but says in his interview that he plays as a no.10 or a no.8.

So maybe he still could play wide, but I'd expect he will play centrally now, either behind Hanson where Whitehouse is currently playing, or even deeper alongside Clifton or Benson.

I got there at 1330 for my Friday knock just as some GTFC staff were arriving and another couple of cars arrived just as I was leaving approx 1600ish. The club claim there was a hope that they might get the international clearance done before the dead line but it was a timed release to keep fans on tenterhooks IMO.

Did you not read the corrections made rancid’s statement? Or do you want to explain when someone is and isn’t English?

Just seen the interview with Grandin, shots on the training ground make him look like an old bloke jigging up and down to keep warm while watching the kids play. Seriously he looks really cold and in a state of shock.

It was me. The ketchup bottle split when I was lacing some on my hot dog and covered everything in tomato sauce. So I had to go home to change my mankini.
