Didn’t YesWeCrann (spelling), the bloke that writes for the star say that he was still under contract? If so, I imagine he will be on massive wages. And can’t see that getting settled. 
 

I would take him here though 


Completely out of favour at Stoke. Think they’ll just want to get him off the books really.

Stoke seem to have had money problems with dried up parachute payments and years of bloated squad and wages yet have tabled a £5.5M bid for Sam Surridge. Definitely renders the likes of Gregory as obsolete.

I don't know his contract situation. My pal is solid though. I'd say its happening. A decent addition if not earth shattering.

Don’t think we need anyone who is particularly fast? Just someone who has the know how to hold the ball up and bring all the pacey players into the game? If he can score a few that’s a real bonus? Think Gregory fits the bill?

I remember Gregory at hillsborough a few years ago absolutely bullying Tom Lees.

Yep. I think the idea is you put the pace around them.

I’ve been saying for months that Gregory would be ideal for this league. Only sticking point is he’s a huge blade.

Wouldn’t he have to agree to sacrifice the remainder of his contract? I’m not sure how these works but surely if he’s contracted to that money he’s entitled to it, and I don’t think we could match it.

Very decent. I’d like to see him here. 
 

didn’t he do really well for millwall in L1?

As long as he's a huge Blade in the figurative sense then that's ok.

 

Don't need one of those fatties wobbling down Fargate in their XXL Dem Blades top.

Surely he would rather drive to hillsborough every day that flipping Stoke!

Wait until his first goal ripples the back of the net. He'll have such a weird felling in him. He'll be blue and white.

Personally if we could add Gregory, Sims and Johnson would be very happy with the business this summer.

 

Sims looking less likely given Moore's comments about players waiting for other options

When did Moore say this?

 

You would have expected Sims to be sorted now. Shame as thought he would have been a great addition.

Gregory could be a very shrewd signing if he's available on a free.

 

He's held his own in the Championship, and had an impressive record in League One a few seasons ago.

 

The younger signings are exciting, but we need a bit of experience and know-how, and Gregory could provide plenty of that.

Spoke to Paul Smith physio when he was going to London to meet Antony gardener to see the specialist about his injury ( which unfortunately finished his career) we was linked with billy sharpe on loan from reading at the time . I asked him if it was true and he said he’d been up for talks and only stick point was how much of his wages we would cover? He said modern footballers nothing like the older ones and would go where the money is said he’d go to Utd if they offered him more but would wear his Wednesday top underneath their tracksuit!!! So we’ll see I guess

Gregory isn’t the signing i imagined for the number 9 shirt but if he is someone that will bully defenders and win headers etc I guess it’s what we need. Would have preferred a goal scorer but maybe that will come from other positions. Also wish he wasn’t a massive blade!
