    Jack Grealish

    So do I

    Yes Terry was a good signing from Bruce, I still feel he failed though and as a consequence we will lose Jack.

    I was told last night it should still go through however our valuation has now risen. Levy thought we were desperate and offered lower and was prepared to wait assuming we’d become more desperate, they know they’ve beaten off other interest and Spurs is Jacks choice. It’s backfired on him, if they meet our valuation it will go through, this is widely know behind the scene, hence Bruce asking him because potentially it could cost Jack a big move. It’s financially a huge move for him.

    Because basically Jack was 99% our the door, Levy trying to low ball us has stalled it and backfired on him

    I know for a fact Jack personally attributes it to Terry taking the time to talk to him and advise him about his game all the time. As I said before I know a fair amount about this deal I said Spurs weeks ago, personal terms are agreed in principle. The last 24 hours have obviously thrown a spanner in the works so it’s an if he moves now, yesterday morning it was when. Also my point was we wouldn’t be in this situation with Jack if Bruce hadn’t failed to get us promoted, If we’d gone up this conversation doesn’t happen

    It’s 2 years and we hadn’t offered him anything at present but this is the window for that offer. Its still likely he will go lads, he’s been offered a good wage and CL football, he’s been told he needs PL football by Southgate. I’m chuffed we’ve got investment but we’re going to really struggle to keep Jack. The nail in his coffin was Steve Bruce being kept on last summer, awful football dinosaur.

    Steve Bruce

    At this point I’m still surprised people expect competence from this guy. He’s been an abject failure at Villa, the fact he has more say now Round has gone has sapped any sort of enthusiasm I had for the coming season. This clown will blood our youth, playing dinosaur football that we’ve just watched fail consecutively with better players for 2 years. He’s a joke & the club is a joke. Villa park has spent the last 15 years as a static big top with various circus’s taking up residence.

    The irony is we’re as big as Spurs traditionally, we’ve just spent the last decade being **** by poor leadership, Spurs have had the exact opposite. He’s had his pick of destination, Spurs is where he’s going. We’re holding out for a fee. levy waiting to drive it down as desperation takes hold. No other horses in the race

    It’s happening, Levy just happy to drive down the fee Yeah exactly, we’ve been a selling Club since Yorke. Cowards at board level for 20 years pretty much

    It’s all just awaiting on a fee between the clubs. No ploy from Spurs it’s all moving ahead, at this point I’ll be massively shocked if it doesn’t go through.

    People peak at different times this conversation is mind numbing. Personally I think Jack will surpass Ali

    Jack Grealish

    No he’s highly praised and well sought after in the game, we’re losing a top player here worse than Young he’ll go places. Yes he has a contract and a fee will have to be agreed but our bargaining strength weakens as that contract runs down. Fact of life now they view it as a job, footballers have a short career their agents are constantly having informal chats with multiple clubs before fees are agreed etc. It’s not just Jacks case this is the game now, tapping up was a headline years ago. There’s constant discussions globally all the time, as a club we’re doing it 100%. Clubs talk to agents sound out of a player would be open to a move, if so they talk ball park figures. If it’s acceptable then they talk to the selling club, agree a fee, this is where the figures are hammered out in writing and a player signs. If you think no discussions take place until a fee is arranged then you’re naive really. There’s no legs to the Liverpool story either.

    Agreed he’s 25 plus add ons at least I reckon. Levy is a hard nosed businessman though so I expect he’ll strike a good deal. Ironically Levy is exactly what we need at the Villa, it’s past sporting men now, you need businessmen managing finances & player wages / contracts. It’s not bs mate, I’m skeptics of ITK generally but this one is legit. Leicester were in for him but he prefers Spurs hence they switched to Maddison

    Modern football it’s always that way now. They sound out players via their agents and once it’s agreed they then discuss fees with parent clubs. If we had gone up this wouldn’t have happened

    I’m privy to ITK info on this saga. I’m not going to reveal how or why but it’s legit. I’ll say after the deal. He’s going Spurs few will be about £20m he’s already agreed personal terms. We appear to want to cash in, fee is the sticking point. I’m devastated by it frankly, absolutely sickening again. I love this club but hate it at the same time, this malaise goes back 20 years now it started with Yorke. The likes of Cahil, Milner, Barry, Young & now Jack. Always selling out best players, from champions of Europe to a selling club it’s truly pathetic and some previous regimes have a lot to answer for. Weve been let down continually by poor management and incompetence & cowardice at boardroom level. Spurs are a similar sized club to us, they’re streets ahead now though because for ten years they’ve been a well run club. Hes gone this summer lads, I wish it wasn’t so but harden your hearts over it. A truly class player and potentially the most talented we’ll let go. Absolutely scandalous again from this club I’m so angry about it. We deserve so much better as a fan base
