Jack Grealish

All different players though. Grealish is not like any other player we have had. Closest maybe Merson and Jack's better than him.

Better than Merson? That's a huge statement tbh. Jack absolutely has the potential to be better than him, but so far he has had half a good season in the top tier, inconsistent in the championship until the drive to promotion.

Has looked amazing in patches this year. Merson was class for years and I still dream of the magic Man years. Absolutely love the Merse. Not quite sure that we can say with absolutely certainty that Jack is better than Merson

Merson was more intelligent in his passing, Merse had the confidence to take shots when the chips were down you could count on him to pull a rabbit out the hat, Grealish carries the ball better and draws fouls where as merson kept on going regardless of being fouled, at the end of the day its very difficult to compare as the game is totally different now .

It wasn't a penalty, Grealish dived... But I don't think he was diving to try and win a penalty, he was standing on the Palace defender's foot so he was just diving to get off it, so well done to him for doing his best to avoid causing injury, and well spotted by the referee, which is why I think he avoided being booked.

Behave. Grealish went down holding his leg/ankle like he always does.

An improved performance, but his double triple backflip was poor.

what was pleasing, is for once the team didn’t try to run everything through him. It meant we had other options on the pitch and avoided their (and everyone else’s) double marking.

The clip doing the rounds on twitter looks bad. Real time it looked like a pen. It wasn’t a penalty but I also don’t think he dived. Fuming at the inconsistency too compared to the pen given against us on Thursday!

I've reviewd the incident again and he might have put his hands on his leg but it wasn't as if he was rolling around the floor, or appealing for a penalty, he stayed on the floor but I think that was just out of exasperation that after going on a good run it had come to nothing.

considering the ref who gave the Fernandes penalty was the same clearing in the woods in the VAR room today makes it more puzzling

Personally real time I screamed at the tv, get up Jack.

He nearly did a back flip. If his leg was taken out where the tackle came from it would’ve taken his body the other way. He gets criticised by other teams for diving, and tonight unusually he lived up to his reputation.

While he plays for Aston Villa, he can dive all he likes if it wins us games.

You are Jack Grealish and I claim my five pounds.

He is doing his best to ruin an otherwise fantastic season. Good! Hopefully that means he will still be here next season.

Some of the posts you would swear he was the worst player on the pitch today. He was OK, made some quality passes but we had 4 or 5 better players today which is rare this season

He was much better today. Much more like his normal level of performance. Dive was embarrassing though to be fair

That 60 yard angled cross field ball to El Ghazi was beautiful. Perfect. Of course, El Ghazi made a bollocks of it.

He is incredibly hateable tbf  The socks, the hair, the antics, the constantly going to ground (notwithstanding that he has seven kinds of shit kicked out of him every game). It’s very easy to see why opposition fans want him to fail.
