Probably something to do with him being a decent player?

He wasn't a bad player, he'd just rather fall down and get a free kick than go on a counter attack. Most fouled player in the league when he was with us.

I really never got all the hate for him. He's facing his own goal, attacker pressing him, nowhere to go... if he has the ability to go down under a push from the attacker and win a freekick, thus relieving the pressure and avoiding losing the ball in a defensive area... then what's the problem?

We blame players for all the diving and theatrics, but that has only come about because we employ utter morons as referees who fall for it over and over again. Even with the ability to see things clearer on video replays, they still choose to do nothing about it. The issue firmly lies with the way the game is officiated.

Anthony Grant would have been aggravating as fuck to play against, but since he was on our team, I don't see the problem. If the referee is falling for it, then I can't fault Grant for taking advantage of it.

We've also had SUBSTANTIALLY worse central midfielders than Anthony Grant.

I dont mind if under pressure, but he would have the ball going forwards, not facing our own goal, then slow down and wait for the chasing player to make contact and fall over. Didn't bother me that much, just made the games a bit boring and slow because he wasn't willing to run with the ball or pass quickly.

For just £3 a month you can sponson an Anthony Grant and maybe one day he will be fast, good and coordinated.

The drawing a foul under pressure manoeuvre was a much loved Dean Wells signature.

The one against Luton in our own box was a thing of beauty.

He also hardly ever broke into a run, lolloped around the same 30 square metre of pitch most of the game, no great range of passing, literally all he did was block, the odd tackle and fall over. Very limited player.

Was the same after he left the few times I saw him, I just don't get why anyone rates him. I must just not understand football.
