Id still make the deal today.
Grabner is flash but Im not sure he can do it for a top club. He strikes me as a big fish in a small pond player.
Ballard was hurt when he got here, never able to train and get in condition to the level he was expected to, and still had to learn the 'system'. Way too steep a hill to climb for him considering the expectations of the club. This effect is seen often in all sports when a player leaves a 'small' team that has low expectations and they come to a contender.
I feel Ballard will step up and be a major part of the team this year.
