...but Kenny End was right. Andre Gray looks like he'll be playing in the Premiership next season. Amazing scenes. I'm starting to question everything I thought I knew.

His rise is akin to Vardy (before this season). Hope he can further emulate him though, seems a lot more likeable guy than Vardy anyway.

What a talent he is, knew he was good but never expected him to go that far, it's great for non league, still some gems.

That's one PL relegation place sorted for next season then.

Another remarkable rise, fair play to him...makes you wonder, who will be next?

Remember him scoring a classy hattrick when Luton romped to a 5-0 win at the Impact a few years back. Like Jamie Vardy knew he was good but not Premier League good. Fair play to him.

Tbf, I never expected him to reach that level after the game where Aswad Thomas had him in his pocket.

Simeon Akinola perhaps although I believe he is still under contract with us and it will require a 6 figure fee to secure him.

Joe McNerney finally let Gray out of his pocket then.

Hopefully he'll have a better introduction to the Prem than Lee Tomlin did. While they are still rare players pushing from playing non-league football to top flight seems to be an upwards trend. Hopefully it continues for the good of all.

Edit: And Simeon Jackson too, his career has really dropped off

Good player and yet more evidence that here are good players down here.

I hope Brighton pip Boro to the other automatic spot.

Good shout with Akinola, he looks like a pretty decent player.

If Norwood was more composed in front of goal, he'd have a great shot of playing much higher up. 21 goals this season in a side that barely created anything for him and, for the most part, he created himself. People may point to the number of penalties but he's won some himself and being a solid penalty taker is a skill in itself.

He's only 25 so could have a late career surge. It certainly wouldn't shock me.

To be fair Jacko did get to the Premier League, it was bound to drop off from there!
