    If Griffiths doesnt drag two sr mirren defenders out of position today then Edouard doesnt score today.
    The man creates more than just goals and assists, he creates space, we made absolutely nothing till the 94th * minute after he was off, he's also the kind of player who can do nothing for 89 minutes but then score from 30 yards out with a minute to go so why would you ever sub him.
    if thats Griffiths being unfit then * does he have to do to get fit.

    The funny thing is he took Griffiths off not due fitness but obviously a bust up at half time. And put rogic on

    When Griffiths plays he scores , creates and runs his backside off more than most of our team.... This fitness issue confusing me as he looks as fit if not fitter than most of our team yet Lennon still takes him off .

    His social media nonsense and issues off the park I agree are very unprofessional but I personally believe his fitness issue has been highlighted to deflect attentions away from Lennon.

    Edouard , Christie, Duffy, rogic, moi, ajer , biton, calum mcgregor have under performed yet he doesn't single them out.

    Ajeti hasn't got his fitness up buy he says nothing, ntcham has disappeared.

    Said the manager who left him at home while the squad went to France for a week, came back and the same manager claimed he was in brilliant shape within that one week.
    Yet said manager didn't play him for ages, claiming no strikers fit for Ferncvravos.

    Not denying the lad wasn't out of shape - as must players tend to be after a lay off, but hardly worth beating him about it if he was able to get back in shape within a week. Going by Lennon.

    Is the bust-up at half-time not just a rumour though? Not seen anything to say it has even a shred of truth in it.

    Will need to monitor Griff's Instagram account to see what next he posts about Mr. Lennon.

    I would have thought it the bust up thing was true the press would have been on to it

    Lenny moans about griff being unfit yet he plays rogic in the team and we are lucky if he has gone over 60 mins in all the years he has been here. There is 100% more to lenny and griff than griff being unfit.

    Griff probably thumbed his little handbag chinchilla.

    Then left a steaming * in his shower.

    Heard he got some 17 year old pregnant during lockdown.

    No idea if it's true but seems like a very Griffithsey thing to do.

    Bit harsh on the lad some of these comments, no his fault he likes the odd sweetie or 2 and takeaways, seen him at a Chinese last year, in his tracksuit.... (not the team one), some grey ned thing, guys unreal.

    Griffiths has professionalism issues but if I had to guess I'd say the fall out is probably because Griffiths is one of the few that can't keep his mouth shut and has called out some of the obvious problems.

    Put it this way - Can anyone really see Griffiths sitting this whole season watching Christie the Golden Boy on set pieces and not say something about it?

    Zero chance he doesn't do that frown he does (you know the one he gives the ref when they're having a shocker?) and say something like, "* sake gaffer he's *, let me take them"

    Once again Griffiths doesn't play we create nothing . At least when he's on the park we create chances even if he's having a poor game his movement creates chances yet gets dropped by Lennon.

    Yet edouard who has been poor all season starts every game ?

    Was watching some of his goals from the Rodgers period. He was in much, much better nick at that period, have to wonder why He looks awful now, not even the fact he’s carrying about a stone too much, but his face too, just looks really unwell.

    You'd look miserable if you had to work under lennon too. Most of the team don't look right now

    So he is getting lambasted for not turning up to the Chinese in £700 Balenciaga sneeks and an obnoxious £2000 Gucci hoody and jacket ?
