Anyway - for Jack - from being nowhere near the England squad a year ago to playing himself into it and becoming the only English Villa player in our long history to play in a major international final. He keeps on with the achievements even when things aren’t going quite perfectly.

Hear hear!! In 6 weeks he has become the peoples player nationally even if not in the eyes of the England Manager. Has earnt worldwide recognition for being genuinely Englands most flair player. He is certainly one player who wont let this affect him for the worst I expect Jack to come back after a holiday with intentions to notch it up again.

I take it back

Madness that the manager sets the players and the order, never heard of that before 

And that's before you then look at the absolute insanity that is putting saka 5th

I too made that mistake....but Jack has come out and disclosed the truth....He did volunteer to take one.

its bad enough losing, but then having to defend a false narrative.....The pundits should know better.

He can rip it up in the Prem......with players who pass the ball to him.

Yep, this was my 2nd biggest gripe from the whole thing, obvious losing the final was the biggest lol.

What's the point of having a player on the pitch with the best stats for progressive carries (or whatever the hell they are called), runs into the box etc with the least amount of minutes played, and then not passing the ball to him. It was so disjointed, mainly because of Sterling's' selfish play and the back 7, so bad to watch.

With historically easy runs to the finals. Our bracket didn't have a team in the top 10 in Europe. And the best team we played was missing their best player.

In 2018 we played Belgium twice we lost twice. We lost to a Croatia who weren't exactly lighting the world on fire and were instead getting through on 1 goal wins and penalties.

Southgate shouldn't receive plaudits for this. He did the bare minimum with the opponents we faced. 

I accept all that but the bare minimum is way more that any of his predecessors managed.

That's Jack out of the next few squads then... the audacity to stand-up to the PE teacher in public.

I don't think it's a good look for any prospective employment hopes to publicly , whether indirect or not making your gaffer look like an absolute tit.

Should probably not behave like an absolute tit then.

After his treatment of Jack in this tournament, I don't think Jack gives a ****.

He has not looked a happy bunny throughout this tournament because that tw@t in the trench coat has cocked the whole thing up with his safety first descision making.

I hope the idiot resigns.

He won’t he’s fully on board with his own hype. I can’t see the trench coat surviving in Qatar though.

Just imagine the fallout if Jack had missed a penalty.

I for one…. am glad he didn’t take one

Can imagine all the abuse he’d have got. Told to go back to Ireland etc not good enough

That is also true but due to decades of mismanagement by the FA.

What point is it that you're actually trying to make? Are you guessing that Grealish didn't want to take one? What is that based on? Because all the evidence suggests otherwise...

Are you saying he doesn't have the bottle to take one? Because again the evidence suggests otherwise...

  

Proven he can do it in the most pressurised scenario. In what very well might have been his last kick for the club, had we lost.

 

Is your evidence that he is not Villa's first choice taker? Is that all you've got? Well...

18/19 - Abraham was our designated taker because he's a penalty specialist.

19/20 - We only had 3 penalties all season. Grealish took one. Wesley was given one of the others to try and give him a hat trick. El Ghazi took the other and was designated penalty taker at that stage.

20/21 - Watkins started as designated penalty taker as Smith wanted his first choice striker to get goals early on in his career for us. He missed and then El Ghazi has taken over since because he has a 100% record from the penalty spot.

Are you saying that every penalty we've had last season that Grealish should have disobeyed the manager's instructions and taken the ball off a player who has literally never missed from the spot? Just so he can take one himself and prove that he's got the heart for it? Is that what a captain is meant to do? Be selfish like that?

Grealish actually handed the ball to El Ghazi for the 90th minute penalty against Wolves because he'd just had a load of unacceptable stick from our fans online and he wanted to give him the chance to re-build his confidence. That is what a captain does. They don't take the ball off a player whose confidence is rock bottom just to prove they can do it themselves.

 

Are you saying he should go against manager's orders for club and country and just forcibly take one himself? Need I remind you what his manager thought the last time someone did that...

And before you say otherwise, it was Southgate's decision who took them...

 

So, back to this post...

  

Tell me where I've used one instance to prove my "narrative" and "conveniently forgotten the rest of the evidence".

You said you're not my mother and to do some research. Well, how's my research?

Still waiting for your evidence...

He’s gone  to ask his Mom.
