I think Dean Smith can really enhance Jack Grealish, along with the motivation from John Terry. Instead of the shouts from the championship tactical genius of give it to Jack, the manager will ensure the team is mobile and think Jack will thrive

You'd hope so

I think Dean will be telling him to move the ball more quickly too.

Romaine Sawyers was pretty much an ever present as the central attacking midfielder for Smith at Brentford. Looking at his stats, he didn't get many goals or assists. Yet brentford's 4141 or 4231 still made them potent. I think the wide players must be key to that , plus generally spreading the goals around

I think it will be 4231, so Grealish can occupy that central spot and go either way as the conduit for the midfield.

El Ghazi and Bolasie either side with big Kev up top.

Kevin? Isn't that Jack's Dad (or brother?)?

I assume he was referring to Kevin Oghenetega Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham, better known as Tammy.

I think Jack will be more than fine and benefit even more with Dean Smith, double coaching sessions and a tactical plan. Very confident he'll soon be firing on all cylinders! UTV!

Agree . A more attacking , in nature , team . Short passing game and more shots .
What's important are the players around Jack learning to be passing , moving to give him options .
Also I do hope he carries ball with far more purpose and that he'll be encouraged to shoot more

Working on his swing and how he kicks I feel smithy and coaching team will help Jack shoot with a lot more power and accuracy.

I predict he'll score 10+ goals this season.
And provide heaps of assists.

He'll also get a go as captain at somepoint , even if I was ridicule in my suggestion , smithy likes to rotate captains.

Something I've read elsewhere, but worth repeating as I think it's an interesting point.

Look at how much of an influence and how good Jota was at Brentford compared with him shunted wide at Monk's 442.

I'm hopeful Smith will know how to get something from Jack.

Jota's been o.k this season for them.

It was Wurzel who had no idea how to use him, played N'doye in the number 10 position v us.

I agree the Smith style should bring out the best in Jack. Romaine Sawyers has played the 10 role for Smith at Walsall and Brentford and been excellent for both so usually a system where creative midfielders will feel at home.

And it also shows again how well Dean Smith did at Brentford.  Still got them playing, even after losing one of his best players to the scum.

Didn't he lose Jota and Hogan in the same transfer window?

And his 2 centre halves within months of each other. He did remarkably well, but needs a good scouting structure around him to replicate the ability to replace. Brentford were always thinking ahead for each position it appeared, and brought in rejected youth from elsewhere to work with them too.

Grealish could be interesting in a Smith team as they usually move the ball quickly and our boy likes to dribble. Then again, maybe it's just because there haven't been players moving about and making runs.

Don't we all just know he'll score a worldy v Swansea !

Jack will thrive in his position when the manager is not shouting give it to Jack. It is a team game and I really think in a while Jack will again show he is the best player in the division. Left wing great tactics

Far better overall performance today, think he will improve with DS in charge
