    But being Scottish and having a sensible haircut means he doesn't get a fraction of the hype that 'captain jack' does

    If Poch wants him then so be it, but i still can not see what all the hype is about.

    I can't see him leaving Villa now they are promoted. It's his boyhood club, so he's going to give it at least one season.

    Nor do I. I think he'd be worth a punt if he was cheap enough but the prices being talked about are silly for a player who has had one undistinguished season in the PL and has spent the last two years in the second tier.

    He's tidy and keeps the ball moving but we can do better for that sort of money.

    There are lots of players out there that are way better than Grealish, and for less money. He's decent. Nothing more.

    meh.

    We wont be getting him, Ill not lose any sleep at the prospect.

    Would have been happy to pick him up at a reasonable fee and see how he does, but c'est la vie.

    Looks like Levy was right on his valuation again. For the right price he could have upgraded our squad (replacing GKN) but 40m? Jog on.

    I think this one was only ever an opportunist signing when villa were temporarily in financial trouble. A low cost signing with bags of potential and homegrown, made sense to bolster the squad.

    The landscape changed quickly last year and has further changed again now.

    Villa have new owners, are back in the prem and have no desire to sell their home grown talisman. His cost will have spiralled to Zaha like silly money because of these factors. Consequently he no longer represents any of the criteria which made us interested.

    Mods I think @Jon has been hacked as this appears to be a serious post!

    Grealish is probably over the moon to get his boyhood club back up to the prem, but he must have a glance at us and think of the game time he should have got this season plus the ultimate of preparing to play in the biggest club game in football. Not his fault but a big opportunity missed for his career/development.

    Grealish got some big problems, his name is not prefixed by Van or Der and it doesn't end with either an a, i or o, simply not good enough for us there must be loads of blokes I've never heard of that fit this criteria.

    We'll see, but it feels like the train has left the station on this one. From reports, it feels like we've moved on a bit, and though I do think Grealish is a talent, it does feel like we're aiming a little higher with names like Lo Celso, Ndombele, and possibly Maddison. Think he'd cost a fortune, especially now that they've gone up, and there seems like so many better ways to spend 50 mil.

    The more posts I read dismissing Grealish the more I believe he'll be just the man to replace Eriksen, ha-ha.
