Jack Grealish

Recommended Posts

Good first half, awful 2nd

Piss around with it for 30 secs outside their box, then play an underhit square pass that gets picked off

Thought he should have came off instead of Marvelous. He looked well off the pace.

One of a few who tried to make things happen. Movement around him is atrocious, he needs to leave if he's ever going to be the best version of himself, unfortunately.

He is trying too hard at the moment. He wasn't bad but can do more. Wide areas are huge problem

He has been below par this season.

He has not produced so far, it is very early in the season but he needs to deliver something.

He is playing way too deep to be having any type of impact on this game.

Personally I’ve been fed up with the National team malarky. He is nowhere near that level:

Had a bit of a shocker second half. Trying to hard to make something happen rather than just moving it around.

I think the criticism is a tad unfair - we’re devoid of smart movement ahead of him. He’s holding the ball, looking for passes instead but there is rarely a good option.

Gave the ball away with easy passes which was unlike him but, otherwise, looked to be the only player trying anything going forward.

Exactly. 

At the end he somehow manages to keep himself in space on the edge of their box, while looking for movement. But there's nothing, what can he do exactly?

Not sure that's fair. Thought he was very good tonight, with a few loose moments. By far the most likely to make something happen. 

Sorry but it appears for some he's above criticism. Total lack of intelligence in a lot of his play, gave the ball away a lot, chose the wrong option a lot, but I guess some nice footwork masks that. Needs to do a lot better.

Such bollocks.

Remember when Liverpool fans would get a bit testy when Gerrard, who was one of their own, put in some bad performances and you'd pull them up on it ?. Infallible in their eyes. Above criticism. I don't want to be like that. Grealish has a way to go at this level. Might make it. Might not. Consider for all the media attention Jack gets, Cantwell at Norwich is massively out performing him and would rightly be more deserving of a call up than Grealish right now.

Certainly not at his best tonight (which he just admitted on SKY) but still was one of our better attacking players IMO.

This is right tbf. He wasn't excellent but he's a player who will always try and keep the ball and make things happen. The lack of options tonight was a joke.

Thought he was genuinely good in the first half, but very poor on the ball in the second.

Though, even though he had a poor second half, he was still the one player picking up the ball, driving forward and trying to make something happen. Unlucky to not have an assist after Wes' miss.

Good first half. Tried too hard second but then who else was attempting to make something happen?

Jota too slow. El ghazi awful touches and wesley weak and not involved.

This idea that hes one of the few trying to make things happen, thats literally what he's there for.

His role is to be creative, be dangerous with the ball, make assists and chip in with goals. 

The problem is that he's, currently, doing a terrible job at it. Five games, one assist (for Luiz's worldie). We need so much more from him, his form is literally season defining for us, which isnt fair on him but its how it is.

The perception that Grealish is playing within himself and holding something back is exactly that, perception. His game intelligence not just tonight but in the 5 games so far has been questionable and at this level things like that become glaringly obvious.

What I don't get is that Smith made a real effort to have him further up the pitch and getting into the box more last season. This season he's back to collecting the ball deep and playing in his own half too much. Needs to be further forward.
