Jack Grealish

Recommended Posts


Barkley's place will be filled by Conor Gallagher.

Unless there's a bonafide world option and I'm talking prime Iniesta/Xavi/Pirlo level option available and genuinely attainable midfield is the last place we need to invest in anytime soon, it's the one position on the pitch where our options are title winning.

Anyone else think he could offer us something different in Midfield?

He wouldn't come cheap but I think he's a talent, he might have a bit of attitude but his type of player usually have.

He would certainly be a better option than Barkley imo, Anyone any thoughts?

Worldie of a player, can play multiple positions so won't displace anyone while adding creativity, it's a no brainer

I already said that he is a player like I hoped Barkley would have been.

A type of player that can win games by his own. He's playing for Aston Villa that is just recently back in the top flight, but that lower quality team overall isn't really stopping him from showing that he is a good player in my eyes. 

3 goals and 4 assists so far. Similar to someone like Maddison, lower quality stats than De Bruyne, but again, taking in count the overall quality of the team...Graelish is going to change his club soon enough!

We do need a player like Grealish. A healthy RLC and Grealish in front of Kante would be a real force of a midfield. If not Grealish than someone like Milinkovic-Savic.

SMS is a good player but he's a unit like Barkley. The EPL seems to be less about physicality and more about ability to play in tight spaces. That's where Grealish fits like a glove, sadly I just don't see it happening.

He's a great player, not just good. He can boss the midfield since he's not only tall but has a lot of technique, this is why there is not one position for him in the midfield but he contributes in every phase of the game, I think Lampard would personally love this type of player.

Though I do think that when RLC comes back we wouldn't need to worry about Sergej, but still we should still go for Jack either way, in the summer we should be able to it's not that hard specially if we finish the season in top 4.

Midfield of Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic are arguably the best MF in world football when they are all playing at their best.

And our other options such as RLC, Mount, Barkley with Gallagher and Gilmour coming up, we are sorted in this position for a long long time.

"Best MF" on an individual basis perhaps, but is it a winning MF? I'm no longer convinced.

Not as good as Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, RLC or Mount.

Probably better than Barkley but he doesn't get a look in anyway so it's pointless.

If we need to shift someone out onto the wings Mount can play that role too.

Grealish would be better off being a big fish in a little pond and stay at Villa for his career.

Though only Kante and to a very small degree if any, Jorginho, are capable to win games by themselves. Grealish would be a great addition to our team, we are pretty thin and have little options for now when it comes to midfield goal threat.

Pretty thin? We have 7 CM's fighting for 3 places.

Is Grealish better than RLC or Mount? No.

RLC has been injured so I can't take him into account yet. But Grealish has done better than Mount IMO, could be wrong though.

That's all well and good, but what did they create second half against City? Nothing. I think we lack creativity and Grealish has that in his locker, we need alternatives to what we've currently got imo if we are to get to the next level and get closer to City and Liverpool.

Grealish is 24, has 4 years Premier League experience under his belt and has 3 goals and 4 assists as Villa's main man.

Mount is 20, first year in the Prem and has 4 goals and 1 assist.

Having said that, RLC is better than both.

What would Grealish have created in the second half against City? My guess would be just as little. If we're signing someone for creativity, I wouldn't be looking at many English players.

Just a sh*t Mason Mount. If he put as much effort in to playing football as he did falling over he might be a world beater. 

He spent more time on the floor than standing in the first half.

Deserved every bit of stick he got at the Bridge tonight. Put him in a team with Mount and Pulisic and we'll go to another level.

It has honestly gotten to a point where I can’t tell for sure if you’re serious.  I think you are, and boy that is something else.
