I would certainly bench Floody and start Ford. Anybody know if Shazam's back on Sunday ? If so I'd start with him, but Grindal has just had two fine games, one against very good opposition an done against not so good. Would be pretty unfair to drop him for the somewhat misfiring prodigal son.
I think Sam might be out for at least this next week - Cockers said "a few weeks" a couple of weeks ago, didn't he? I agree that Grndal/Ford has looked good enough to start again, and we bring the returners off the bench.
While pleased that Grindall has done well in the past 2 games , on the basis of his past career there is a horror show just waiting round the corner .Lets hope Harrison is fit , but at least we'd have Youngs on the bench if a rescue act is needed .
I would not choose Grindal over my mother so it has to be YBY if he is available. People say Grindal is playing well simply because he has not made too many errors like the ones he normally does. That is no reason to pick a player. What threat does he pose? how fast and accurate is his passing? how many defenders does he commit onto himself to free up others, how fast he is getting around the park to cover tackle etc etc etc etc etc. For all his poor form he is still acres better than JG.
