But that's just the point, he comes over as a bloke who's a bit thick with one great talent. Thats why he needed  people with better judgement around him. Sod it lets move on.

Iíve no problem with him going considering heís played a massive part over the past 3-4 years getting us back to something like where we think that we should be, heís fetched £100m in transfer fee and it was the League champions (albeit wanky ones that have completely bought their success). Compare him to some of the ****** that ditched us in the past. Iím more pissed off that the club havenít really matched their supposed ambition in the transfer market after he left and mouthgate picking him for the first game after his move after barely using him at the euros looks very cuntish on the face if it. I think that Preece guy is a shit stirring wanker trying to get himself some attention, although I will agree that Grealish did look rather smug in that interview last week. As some have pointed out though heís not the sharpest tool in the box and people like that donít usually wear their success in a very humble way, that goes for all walks of life.

I'm in almost the same boat, Clark.  Players move on, even (it's now clear) ones that are super fans.  Right / wrongly I am more worried about our response to him leaving - that may be unfair on the club, but they have set the bar high with rhetoric about Europe and that aint happening this year.

The starting for England now he's at Man City was completely to script, so doesn't irk me as much.

Thereís certainly a pretty high bell end ratio from what Iíve seen over on VT so Iíd take with a pinch of salt but it certainly looks like the brakes have been put on at the moment so it might explain that. Would be odd though considering heís only been with us 3 years and weíve developed a lot in that time. And surely he wouldnít have been put off just by Grealish wanting to move on?

I've always felt Grealish was the only reason Edens got involved.

Randy Lerner gave up completely once MON had gone, so youíd hope lightning wouldnít strike us twice.

Hopefully all bollocks anyway.

I cannot tell if youíre joking.  Iím as certain that i can be that a very rich bloke in America would not invest £100s of millions based on the possible success of a young brummie lad.

Blimey - are we still talking about Grealish?!?

Time to move on lads - itís history. No one cares about him anymore, heís not one of us. Letís talk about our players and our club

The Grealish who'd played two half-seasons in the Championship and even his own supporters were doubting? That Grealish?

Nope, not joking. As far as I can tell, his sole foray into sports prior to us is his investment in the Bucks, but primarily in Giannis. I think he saw a similar opportunity to follow the same strategy here with him.

Not too worried, I think we have other up-and-coming superstars that'll keep him interested in a similar vein.

No, not that one. The other one, the one he eventually became, the one on the cusp of captivating the planet, the one that would've, should've been. That one.

I'll readily accept that Edens is a better judge of potential than many of us. We just judge footballers by their ability. There's more to superstardom than that.

I have no idea if there is any truth in this rumour or not, I doubt it, but it does seem to be another unsettling talking point that isn't helping our start to the season at a time when we all need to be pulling in the same direction.
