Seems a similar mould to Hope. Able to play out wide or as a 9, similar goal scoring record too.

Replacement for Woolrey perhaps.

Reading a bit more on the Plymuff forum, hes like Woolery for Town fans, totally polarising views on him.

Quote from: Plymuff fans
Joel Grant is a very useful squad player, always gives 100% and has at times shown that little bit of magic that can unlock a defence.

He is a very average League 2 player who has serious desire and commitment problems.

An average player whose dubious form has deserted him.

I have been impressed by Joel Grant this season but he looked again like he didn't fancy it today, when we really needed him to step up. Very lacklustre performance and a more determined striker would have done better when he was all but clean through in the first half.

I donít know where this ďlack of effortĒ has come from. Itís like people come up with a idea and then it somehow sticks when Argyle didnít perform.

Simply, the guy isnít a centre forward but a wide player. Two examples of goals he has scored this season. Crewe and Swindon away. Both scored with him moving off the flank and coming in from wide positions.

Also during the match he rarely gets out of a comfortable trot and more often than not (for that read always) ducks a challenge. I would be very surprised if we see him in a starting 11 for us again. Disappointing as he is a skillful player.

Not sure about lack of effort but what struck me is that he seems to be running in treacle. A couple of times the ball went into the space and the defender or keeper beat him easily. He wasn't the only one mind you. I thought he did do well when the pass came to him directly and he did hold it up under lots of physical pressure. I thought he used to be quick!!!maybe he's bulked up and lost that.

Regardless of the fact he is a wide player rather than a striker there is no excuse for bottling out of 50/50 situations.Yesterday was not a one off but is becoming the norm. Joel is not "with it "for some reason.

Sorry, l just donít think he is lazy. Yesterday l noticed how hard he tried to hold the ball up on occasions. It doesnít strike me thatís a lazy player.

No lack of effort. More a lack of ability in front of goal and a lack of confidence because of that.

Joel Grant has never, ever been 'very good'. He's a distinctly average player who enjoyed one or two spells of reasonable form last season and early this.

Not wanting to stay on a negative, as we are on a great run, but Joel continues to show a lack of effort and interest when he comes on as sub!

If Joel Grant wasnít trying very hard or wasnít behind the team then Iím pretty sure that the manager wouldnít play him (in fact heíd probably make him train with the reserves). I think his effort levels are fine. Whether heís the right choice for a central striker position is a separate debate.

Never rated Joel Grant, very lazy and frankly needs to go.

If he does sign, then in theory we could play Fryer, Fryers, Grant, Grant, Smith, Smith and Smith.

Its all going a bit Bobby Robson, saves Wellens forgetting players names.

Somebody please clear my fuddled brain re the salary cap.

I understand there is an overall wage cap of £2.5m. I also understand the squad is capped at 24 players.

Now, players under 21(?) do not count towards the squad cap, but do their wages count towards the salary cap?

Shame Grant Smith no longer playing..... looking at his record he had 19 clubs and the 33 he played for us the most anywhere with 10 goals.

No, U21 players neither count toward salary cap total or squad limit.

It is, and it also means that the wages of Kovar & M Smith are not counted towards the total budget! I think T Smith is a few months too old though.

So many seem unable to grasp this. I see keeping Curran is getting thrown into the Broadbent argument, regardless of the source of Curranís wages he doesnít count to the squad size or wage cap so is irrelevant to a one or the other argument.

Thanks Horlockslegs.

Such a shame for Broadbent, but whether injured or otherwise he's not really had a look in. I'll always have his signed sponsors shirt (in your face Audry!) .

Not a rumour but i see someone on twitter mentioned Ben Heneghan. 6'3 CB that seems to still be available? Released by Sheff Utd but spent last 2 seasons on loan at Blackpool. Looks to be exactly the sort of player to fill the CB hole we have.

Linked to Preston and Millwall just over a month ago, could be a possible target.

Broadbent is a good L2 CB. He's not suitable for the way we play though. better all round for him to move on and establish himself somewhere and allow us to bring in a more suitable, capable option.
