I have to be honest I found Grealish very greedy at times v Leicester and wasn't a great team game player.

I feel he half wanted to show everyone how good and skills he is but at least two occasions he could have released the ball quicker and 3 times got a shot away.

He didn't have one shot at goal.

However he still brought a lot of magic , did some outrageous bits of play and for some ridiculous reason was afforded little protection against Leicester.

Castange is a great player but he did several fouls and should have been carded earlier.
I was worried that Moss handling of game overall could have had a Villa player sent off or injured.

Didn't like it one bit.

Now my observations on Grealish being greedy was most evident in a flying counter attack in which he could have popped it off to the left to Watkins or the right to Barkley .

He ended up dribbling past Barkley into the area and had a shit /cross blocked.

I think in that respects he needed to be more aware and the only way he'll be getting into England squads is if he's hitting
10+ goals and 15+ assist this season.

I love the football ability but I can't have that he was so good v Leicester . I found it one of his lesser games yet still he so fantastic in his control and football but he's judged to Hugh standards and needs to be contributing to a high level.

15+ assists means Gareth can't ignore him.
The main thing, though against Leeds he could hold on to it and it would help , is to sometimes play a quicker tempo and certainly release the ball quicker.

But hes still and always super !

Welcome back Footy, but seriously, 15 goals and 20 assists "then" he's *nearly* world class?  What a load of shite.

Also better with the ball at his feet than any England player since Joe Cole? Which implies he's not as good as Joe Cole?

Jesus Christ.

Wiki
"A clever, versatile, and technically gifted midfielder, Cole is capable of playing in several offensive midfield positions, as an attacking midfielder, winger or supporting striker.A quick, strong and creative player, Cole is known in particular for his dribbling skills, and is capable of both scoring and creating goals due to his vision, passing and striking ability.His dribbling and overall flair was praised by Pelé, who stated that, "He has the skills of a Brazilian," during Cole's spell at Chelsea. "

I not debating between Cole and Grealish.
But merely suggested that since Joe Cole no English player has been better skills gifted technically till super Jack has come along.

I believe Joe Cole wasn't always used to best of abilities at club and international levels.
He would have been the greatest English player if it wasn't for injuries.
I think people suggested he was like Gazza too

I've been watching Grealish since he broke into the first team (and on a few occasions when he was playing for the yoof) and at no time has Joe Cole ever entered my head whilst watching him.

Slightly different players but I get the parallel Footy is getting at.

But you can't be world class if you don't deliver consistently world class performances.
Jack can do world class things with the ball . The way he manipulate is a joy to behold

Just want to have one perspectives of where improvement is needed .
Time and again I say he is the most talented English player currently at this time the best.
There's no question on that for me.

I question what level he is and can reach.
I also want double figure goals and assists
As does Dean Smith as does Jack Grealish

I completely agree and have often thought the same. Albeit they are still quite different they have quite a few similarities especially their ability on the ball.

Thank you!
I like the Figo comparison if a little different in terms of shooting ability.
But Grealish comparable is difficult to any actual English footballer past or present.

I dunno only re runs and stories but likes of Stanley Matthews Tom Finney , Steve Mcmanam, Chris Waddle where players perhaps similar to varying degrees of play and ability ?

Others will know far more and better and George Best too perhaps yes as said because of how he played but Grealish isn't as much of a glider as best more a ghoster or bamboozler.

Our Jack is a uniquely and supremely gifted footballer who Dean Smith has continuosly improved and developed on the field.
That's one thing we can all agree on.

It's mainly the case of the football ability rather the exact like for like style.
There hasn't been any English footballer since Joe Cole who has such gifted abilities . Natural and technical superb in my time of watching
That's the crux really.

I'd say Jack Wilshere was on about the same level as Joe Cole.  Grealish is miles better than both of them.
