Shearer, Le Tissier and Kane combined have won less than Phil Jones. Trophies aren't the be all or end all of judging a player.

No, but Le Tissier was half the player Grealish is. He was capable of sublime moments but he didn't have the athleticism to chase all over the pitch like Grealish does. Kane ought to move to a big club and he'll win plenty.

I didn't compare the players, just saying using trophies won to asses how good a player is or was is pretty pointless when Danny Murphy won more than Paul McGrath.

Had Jack scored or better passed to an open Ollie after that spectacular run this game would have been so different. Itís harsh to criticize him after that run, but that decision there, in isolation might have decided the game, or certainly what could have happened after. And he did much the same in the game vs Leicester. He has to be better at getting others involved at the key moments. If he tries to do it all alone we will be back where we were last season. It cannot be all about Jack.

You are right, but it was a great run and if he had chipped it in and we had gone on to lose, it would still be talked about for years. It will still be talked about, absolute class. UTV

I think watching it back he just took one touch too many, if he hits it before that last touch it goes in. Think he earned the right to the shot either way.

I donít disagree but right at that moment itís a critical point. He should have pulled the trigger or passed and he did neither and when he did shoot he the angle and the chance itself was worse.

Scored a similar goal against Rotherham in 2017

I think he is trying too hard TBH. Needs to shoot sooner or pass. Getting a bit mouthy with the refs as well which I hate. Still our best outlet though.

One poor game doesn't define him.  Come back again next week and be better.  I agree about the gobbing off though, cheap yellow.  Captain, not clown.

I mentioned I feared he would return from England duty and then decide to try to do too much again by himself rather then for the team to show Southgate what he is missing? Is this happening or are we justy playing too many games with the same players / formations and being found out?

Le Tissier was on par ability wise with any of the best players we have have ever seen in The Premier league.

His work rate or lack of doesnít make him half the player of anyone and in fact because he had 9 grafters around him allowed his ability to shine.  The 90s was an era you could get away with being ďlazyĒ but world class.

If your striker is unmarked in the box, you play him in every single time. I hope Watkins had a word with Grealish after the match because poor decisions like that can potentially cost us points.

Grealish needs to learn to release the ball much earlier and stop being so greedy in possession. He gets rightly praised for his Fulham and Liverpool performances, but some seem to think he's immune from criticism when he's played poor, well he isn't.

Barkley was an absolute shadow last night and it seemed like we were back to hoping Jack would do it all on his own. That surprised me that smith couldnít see how Ross was running in treacle and replaced him.

Quite a lot of people are saying Jack should have teed Ollie up,no absolute certainty he scores, but really after that run he was going to shoot. Glory beckoned.
