Ex Tic Released by Stockport


Recommended Posts

This is another opportunity to mention that goal he scored on 'Celebration Sunday' against Grimsby, which I claim to be the best goal I've ever seen. I bet those who got in free that day and have never returned are still talking about that goal.

 

Good luck for the future Adam.

Agree 100% Left back on right side of penalty area with back to goal leaps in the air and scissor kicks cross from left into top corner. As the ball came over i said 'what the ****'s he doing there' Not for the first time watching Latics i was rendered speechless.

Perfect description.

 

Or.....Griffin stuck out his leg as far as it would go in an attempt to stop the ball going out of play. It hit his ankle and looped over the keeper in a bizarre piece of luck in a game were Latics could do no wrong and were 5-0 ahead at half-time.

 

He's just lost his job so I'll give him the benefit of the considerable doubt! :grin:

 

Good luck Adam and hope you get fixed up with another Club.

Still goes down as the greatest fluke ever in my book!

This is one of the highlights of my watching the beautiful game for nearly sixty years and you pour cold water on it - some people have no soul! :shock:

He went sh**. Couldnt get in the team and wouldnt be getting in it next season - hardly a suprise. Most stockport fans knew it was going to happen.

 

I saw him twice after he left us and he looked awful. Got run ragged both games and didnt show any of the promise he started too before he was transferred to stockport.

Griff will always be remembered by me for his performance V City. He was absolutely outstanding that day. To me, he came accross as a perfect professional who gave 100%, but just a little short in terms of talent IMO. I genuinely hope that he gets another club. If the likes of Da Bosh and Butch can carve livings out as footballers, well theres hope for Griff.

*LL agres with Slurms shocker*

 

I had to bale out of that match but from the highlights, Socialist Worker Party, who was the hottest thing on the block at the time, didn't get a penny's change out of Griff all game. I saw him on one game on the TV last season and thought he looked to be one of their bigger players, which could have been a hint of a problem. Re: the Sunday goal, I've watched it hundreds of times, and every one it looks like he meant it. Ludicrous and he could spend a lifetime trying to repeat it, but I think he just had an instinctive pop.

Ooh i was going to just comment on that goal when i first read this but you've reminded me about his performance against City. Firstly I had a great view of that goal since i was in the lookers paddock near the rocky road end. As the ball cam across to Griffin he looked up to see where Vernon was (Vernon was on fire that day) and he was flciking it back towards Vernon (IMHO) and it went brilliantly wrong looped over the goalie and went in. A definate fluke in my book. As for that game against City if you look at SWP's performances against all opposition no-one has ever had him in their pocket as much as young Adam Griffin. SWP was the next big thing for England at the time and City's great big hope but Adam Griffin did not let him have a kick (of the ball at least) he was immense. I think he could still do a job for a lot of teams in league 2 so I hope he gets professional football next season.

Pretty much marked SWP out of the game didn't he? That took some doing...
