Never looked good enough at Palace or Millwall. I suspect he's reached his level and good luck to him.


Well, I could be wrong but as I remember he was an improving youngster who decided to leave to get first team games quicker. I am pretty sure the club was disappointed that he went, a bit like Bostock, and so was I. He had potential but no patience. In fact I was pretty angry with him when he left and thought who the hell does he think he is, he should have stayed and learned.

Wouldn't be interested in having him back given his attitude, unless he has really changed.

I suppose he would argue that unlike Bostock, hindsight has proven him right. He's scored goals at increasingly higher levels in the lower leagues and his next move will probably be to a top Championship team. He may well get to fulfil his potential, albeit by a different route. Unluck Boston, we can't really argue with that.

 


Sydenham by birth. Selhurst by the Grace of God.

Onwards and upwards! Now joined Norwich for an undisclosed fee. 20+ goals again next season?

 


The crowd is outstanding, and especially with the penalty after 44 minutes it was clear when we came out after half-time the welcome would be pretty loud and not too friendly. Crystal Palace wanted to strike back, so that was all clear. This is a wonderful place to play football - Jurgen Klopp

I remember Lewwis Grabham getting the winner in the very last seconds of a championship match at WBA. First touch off the bench I think, so very disappointed he wasn't played more often. Since he has rubbed it in. On business in Bournemouth and spoke to a local who said Grabs was a neighbour. Funny attitude apparently. Could be our answer. But be good to see how he gets on in Norwich.

Grabban played for 'Purley Panthers' as a youngster.Another player who played for this team was Kieran Gibbs who actually played there as a striker but I don't know if the two players were there at the same time.

I remember his name being spelt Lewwis, or was this a perpetuated spelling error?
