  1. Reminds me of Tuanzebe, will make wonders for Chester to go to the right of the centrebacks too.
  2. They wouldn’t pay his wages, probably not even a third of them if he is apparently on 40k a week.

    Jack Grealish

    I'd look at Jack's key passes stat more so than just assists, most of the time he's playing the ball for the assist, which is normally the harder ball as it''s the one opening up the defences.

    He has a wonderful left foot. He has no right foot. It halves his ability and doubles his time on the ball to take passes from angles on the pitch so he can get it onto his left hand side. I don't think I've ever seen him do a one touch pass with his right foot, which, in that deeper position you need as you're the one expected to dictate the pace of the game when in possession.

    Neil Taylor

    I think his main issue is that his body position to receive the ball from another players pass is not set early enough, you can see him trying to sort his feet and body weight out far too late to receive and make that quicker pass and keep the tempo going. It also impacts his defending, as by the time he’s sorted his feet out, the opposition have already made a choice (which they would obviously be instructed to in pre match analysis). To me, that indicates a mental block; almost like he’s playing on nerves most of the time. That tackle really has impacted his confidence as a professional.

    Axel Tuanzebe

    It will hopefully mean we can play with a higher line in the near future if he keeps improving, especially with the pressing we’ve started doing off the ball higher up the pitch, could really shorten the space for opponents to work in.

    Well, I think the away end at Sheffield United let their feelings known somewhat.

    Match Thread: Sheff Utd v Villa

    We play someone half decent in this league, we get exposed. United are what, a top 6 team in this division? We are so far away from that level of team at the moment, we need a new approach. Bruce is done.
