Young always went down easily. I seem to recall him buying a couple of cheap free kicks that led to goals against Small Heath. I didn't particularly applaud him for it but I didn't particularly knock it for him either.

I do wonder what our perception of Grealish on this regard will be like once he goes?

I always thought Young was quite brave beyond his physique. He was pretty spindly during his time with us, but he was never shy about challenges.

his over-exaggerating antics used to piss me off.

Grealish takes a lot more kicks that Young did - and he handles it way better.

Young had a habit of hanging a leg out and catching the defender, Jack has a habit of putting his body between the defender and the ball and making them foul him.  I think Young bought a lot of fouls, Jack buys a few, too, but he earns far more by making defenders come through him.

James Milner still being awesome.
Well played that guy on another trophy and league title
Must be the most successful player of premier league era that moved on from Villa
Complete pro.
We could do with a few more of his type at Villa !

Ashley Young still being awesome at 35
Helped inter to finish 2nd this season away to Atlanta in a  2-0 win. 4 goals and 4 assists in 18 appearances 13 starts
Saturday night Final match of season it was classic Young
Trademark assist in first min and a trademark Youngy curler for his second.
Signed in January 2020 and he's looked effervescent.
Young by name Young by nature !

Well played. Love this guy! Hope Inter win the Europa League

I have always thought we had the best of Ashley, he tormented defences and his crossing and spot kicks were spot on. I believe the amount of rough treatment handed out to him took it's toll and his game dropped off and he started looking for the free kick. Great career though.
