The Gray Days Are Over

Blackburn Rovers left-back Michael Gray has become the first player to be shown the door by Mark Hughes this summer.

With fans favourite Stephen Warnock and Swiss International Bruno Berner WELL ahead of him in the pecking order, Gray has been told his contract will not be renewed when it expires at the end of June.

32-year-old former England International Gray earned himself a yearlong extension last summer after helping us to a sixth place finish at the end of the 2005-2006 season but struggled for first team football during the 2006-2007 season and hadn't featured for Rovers since December 2006, and actually finished the campaign on loan with Championship side Leeds United.

I think it is fair to say that Gray's best days are well and truly behind him but I would still like to wish him well for the future and thank him for his contribution to the side over the years.

His best days are WELL behind him but I say good luck Mickey Gray wherever you end up next. The Premiership is probably a Very UNLIKELY destination now though?!?!

Don't let the premiership door hit your @ss on the way out Mickey!

Fair well Micky, the guy played a bit role for us when we had our problems but his days are well past him, good luck to him whereever he goes
sasman
Good luck Mickey, you weren't the greatest but the workload was there. Hope the future bodes well.
MikeyGamst
I assume he is going through a double set of doors then BomBom, so he could get double the spanking on the way out?!?! But from what I've heard he is into multiple things anyway lol!
Hughes Da Man
Apparentley with Coleen McLoughlin....
MikeyGamst
Quality, I speak from experience (unlike Mickey Gray she accepted my proposal!) it is exactly like that BomBom lol :)
Hughes Da Man
HDM is this how you fathered Derbyshire????? rumour mill special...
MikeyGamst
You know what dude, there have been so many I wouldn't know lol!
Hughes Da Man
I dont know how you managed tho HDM, what with you discussing Little HDM and it being cold. Little Bom looks like a babys arm hanging out of the pram with an apple in its hand :D
BomBom
LMAO big time! He's only cold when I p i s s myself with laughter (on the colder days) at what Spurs say! But I'm walking away from the topic now lol!
Hughes Da Man
Laughing at Spurs!?!??! why on earth would you do that... ;)
MikeyGamst
Unbelievable isnt it. Laugh at the Spuds fans, understandable!
BomBom
LMAO where did my Colleen impression disappear to? hehe
BomBom
I dont know, its prob been censored by immature Man U fans offended at how we can mock Shrek's donkey.
MikeyGamst
LMFAO
BomBom
Shrek and Donkey off on another whirlwind adventure! I think it may have been a little too much BomBom and removed by the Vital Admin dudes (maybe, just maybe rightly so though, but it was funny!)
Hughes Da Man
the only potential naught word was in relation to an orgasm, i censored the sweary words myself! oh well In the style of Right said Fred....I'm too funny for Vi-tal, to funny for Vi-tal, too funny by faaaaaaaaaar!
BomBom
I think he will end up staying at Leeds unless a championship club comes in for him.
dazza71
Leeds can no longer afford him, unless he plays for pittance!
