    I’m so happy he’s back. His goal return is unreal. I didn’t realise how good he was until I saw him live at a few consecutive games.

    He does things that you can’t appreciate from TV. He’s a constant pain in the * for defenders. Moving them all over the shop even when our back line are passing the ball around.

    Plays on the shoulder, and every defender no matter how good they are, hate players that run in behind.

    Totally agree having Griffiths back is massive. He can work hard now on his fitness over the next 10 days but what a great boost to have him back in the fold and what a big goal that was.

    And what that does, is it creates space for others. I can see him starting against Huns.

    It's been a while but Griff is back doing what he does best, i thought both he and Klimala looked good when they came on, had a real appetite for the game.

    We played our best football last season when he partnered Edouard.

    I think Edouard would benefit with Griffiths up beside him again.

    Would be more interested in minutes per goals, tbh. I reckon it would be seriously impressive.

    Just wondering if we could reasonably expect 150 by the end of the season. The answer to that is probably no but its no like he’s not capable of doing it either :56:

    Should be hungry to get fit and firing seeing Scotland reaching that final and the pish masquerading as strikers in the squad.
