Fecking hell.
Now he canít score and his first pass is rubbish.

He better get his first pass of the game right on Wednesday or it will confirm that he is indeed, crap.

I think it's simpler than is being positioned: JG is being even more heavily marked, particularly around the penalty area; and the inversion onto his right foot for a shot is being anticipated better by opponents.
All of which is fine if it gives other players more space to score.

Yeah, they closed Grealish down well for parts of the match, but at the cost of giving Traore the freedom of Villa Park, while ensuring Luiz and Watkins had plenty of space and Targett and Cash had nobody stopping them getting forward.

Even then he still managed to create the first goal and could easily have scored one himself.

Two assists in his last three games. I don't care if he scores them or sets them up to be honest, but he's doing one or the other at the rate of almost one a game this season. Some people are just weird.

Exactly. I just hope that weíre not looking back at a time when one of our own became a truly top class player - and we couldnít be in the ground to see it. Itís absolutely gutting.

Hopefully we'll be watching him do it in the Champions League next season.

Itís eminently possible. Iím so excited about this team, First XI are all great and have every chance to get better, stand-ins are coming in and performing. KDB out for 6 weeks, 'The Mighty Reds YNWA' struggling. Anything can happen.

Interesting in the chatter after the Newcastle match, Darren Bent and Jamie Redknapp both said without hesitation we should be in with a crack of top 6.

I think that's the thing with us this season. Jack's good enough to create a handful of chances himself even when he's double- (or triple) marked. But now we've got the players, in Barkley/Watkins/Traore where it's not enough to just 'stop Jack'. Remembering Bertie has only been playing PL football for about 4 months, as has Ollie - they're only going to get more of a handful.

I suspect once other teams start having to focus (even) more on them - so less on Jack - he'll look even better than he does already.  The future for both him & us looks really good right now.

Sound logic.

Well if the Plastics can, I don't see why we can't.

Video on his instagram of him scoring 5 free kicks in a row during training. This is a side of his game I'd love him to improve, if he become a genuine threat from dead balls from 20-30 yards he'd be the full package. Glad to see he's putting the minutes in too improve that side of his game.
