Grealish

Post by Spotty »

He really is a horrible diving tw*t. Gets in positions were he instigates contact and rightly, he is being found out. Villa fans embarrassingly complaining about Bamford diving but Grealish is getting a reputation.

Great result by the way.

Sadly as well Grealish is rapidly getting the " untouchable" status from a lot of ref's... the real maddening thing for me is Grealish also like's to play hard, and then become's the mouthy Grealish to the ref..." come on ref I get kicked all game"... he cannot take it back, I do not care how good a player is... when this tactic become's one of your best weapon's in your arsenal..spoils the game... Players like Grealish would never have survived against the like of Norman Hunter, Tommy Smith, Chopper Harris back in the day.

Grealish makes me so angry all the skill in the world, potential to be world class but goes down faster than a crack whore and stays down trying to get yellow/red cards handed out when he’s clearly not hurt but if a decision goes against him he moans more than one of JTs mates wives :oops:

I said this to a guy I work with whose a Villian, he responded yea but if he was in your team, I pointed out I was talking about the England game and as an England fan I loved his skill but felt he was embarrassing every time he went down.

He needs to take a look at Messi how many times he’s genuinely gets fouled but jumps and gets on with the game a real world class player

Grealish just knows how it works, and tbf Bamford and Ayling have bought us many a FC in similar fashion. But yeah, Grealish would gain a bit more respect if he just got on with the game.

I just had a thought about the Bamford / Mings handbags incident too.

I know it obvioudly riled up Bamford but I wonder if it also played in the Villas defences mind too and they didnt want to get too close after that in case Bamford keeled over likeche did under the Mings challenge.

The only time he didn’t go down when touched last night he ran the length of the pitch and nearly scored. He’s a very good player but is his own worst enemy with his tactics. One of these days and hopefully soon, referees are going to get wise to him and he will have to stop taking a dive at every verse end, and he’ll be a better player for it.

Just heard Steve Nicol say the same. Summarizing: "When he stays on his feet he almost scored the goal of the season. If he gets fouled, fair enough. But his manager should have a word with him and tell him to stay on his feet and show us what he can do. "

I was going to start a competition earlier this week on how many times he would go down on the floor.

The kid has immense talent, wish he would use it more. If he wants to play like he is and keep diving, he might want to go to other leagues where this the norm.

By the way I do worry about Ayling doing similar things.

One thing that stood out for me is its basically the Jack Grealish show (plus 10 others). That imo is how he thinks.

Clearly talented and what not but i actually think he stays at Villa more for himself, Mr Villa, the Captain in his little goldfish bowl.

He is selfish, he doesn't always do whats best for the team, he does whats best for Jack Grealish.

Enjoys being the main man, everything revolving around him in a team where he is basically untouchable and dropping or even subbing him is out of the question.

All this talk about how he almost scored a worldie. Well if he passed the ball 10 yards Watkins had a 1v1.

He was lazy all game offering no help to his full back.

Wasnt alone plenty of Villa players were lazy but he is the Captain, where was the example?

He effectively reduced his team to 10 men for a spell because poor old Jack wanted a free kickbut didnt get one so lay down for a while, was he really hurt? Course he wasnt but his teammates had to put theball out for him.

He is fine when things are going well and has clear ability but a team player? Not so sure, not in the way a Captain should be.

Bielsa wouldn't like him imo if thats how he is all the time he wouldn't get on with MB.

Not sure how he would do in a side that has a proper system and roles that dont revolve around him. Maybe thats why Southgate doesnt pick him?

But that intimates that Southgate has a clue, when we all know he hasn't.............

Should he have been booked when VAR showed there was no contact? Do they still do that?

He certainly seems to have gained a reputation for simulation, I'd like to hope that the match officials are wise to his antics by now ,of course this would soon be stopped if clubs handed out stiffer penalties to the players involved in these activities

Wondered that too. If they do, then why wasn't he, if they don't where's the deterrent

I can't stand the little pr**k. Decent player, but hugely overrated, imo, and Cjay makes a very good point about him wanting everything to be about him. He probably had every right to shoot after that great run he made, but he squares it and Villa are one up and maybe it's a very different game. Not a team player and Bielsa would hate him for that selfishness. Not convinced he'll ever go to one of the really big teams, he wouldn't be the focal point and wouldn't like it. Diving f****r!

Thrilled for you that she's still with us.

My mother passed in 2000, the same year my wife was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Didn't think years could get any worse than that, and then 2020 came around. Lost my father this year along with everything else.

Thank goodness for Leeds United and my dog. :)
