Jack Grealish

He's going to be wealthy beyond the wildest dreams of the average person playing for Aston Villa. 

I don't think it'd be about the money. I think Jack would be weighing up playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, winning lots of trophies at all levels, going deep into the Champions League, locking himself into the England setup for the next decade.

This is where I’m at - i was gutted when Gidman, Gray etc moved on but it is different with Jack as he’s one of us. 

If he does go then we move on. 

so was I.....but we went on to better things.

We have no choice, we have to move on...but is it so hard to make a decision?..... the procrastination, is doing our preparations no good...and Jacks reputation.

Look, I know players want to win things, but look at how many clubs and players don't....their life style is on another planet.

If you told Jack that he would be paid what he is now, when he was 18, he would have said, " that'll do for me" I don't want anymore.

He can fulfill all his dreams with us.....how can anyone be certain Man city will win the trophies, folk predict......nothing is certain in football...and Chelsea has already had a big say on that.

Who could forsee, Villa winning the league and going on to win the Euro cup....

Happiness and contentment is something money alone can't buy.

Ps I was close friends with Andy when he left and he said to me will you be coming to Wolves, he provided "players lounge" tickets every match at Villa.....I said "No And, I am a Villa fan first and an Andy Gray fan second" He said I know, and we parted amicably.

thats how I feel about Jack,now, but I don't know Jack intimately, like I did Andy.

I remember clearly the year after Barry left, when he lined up against us the way Milner went after him. I wasnt fussed because we still had a good side that season, and the loss wasnt that bad.

Then it was de ja vu, City hadnt destabilised us enough so came back for Milner. That one really stung, but again, I watched closely as Delph went steaming in on Milner at the Etihad. It was something we could get behind but by then City were miles clear with their bulk buying of any decent players. Then fast forward to Delph, sickening again.

If they manage to do it all again after we’ve finally got back to an even footing after a decade its no wonder Villa fans are losing their shit. Jack aswell will cut a hundred times deeper. I have to put my faith in these owners to convince him if there is indeed a clause, and also will have to put faith into Jack doing whats right by his people, he must know the fanbase have suffered enough and this will leave many distraught.

The problem is if he goes how will mings , Martinez watkins feel about the clubs ambitions ? We would need to recruit well and buy top quality players , Europe must be the aim next season with or without Jack

I still don’t think he’ll leave but if he does, then my love of him will disappear overnight. He’ll have the same kind of status as someone like Barry (Gareth, not Fry) and I’ll join the thousands of fans that criticise him for being a greasy diving cheat.

He’s got the chance to be Villa’s greatest legend. I hope he can see that for what it is and make the right choice.

I wonder whether City possibly getting in trouble again meant they accelerated things by offering silly money to get it done now.  Hopefully it will get sorted quickly either way when Jack comes back to training.

If he stays then great. If he's off then he can do one. All the "My Club" stuff would have been nonsense all along and I'd sincerely hope he never wins a single trophy in his career.

Either way, VTID.

I just don't get this attitude and all these kind of posts really annoy me.

He's shown commitment and loyalty WAY beyond any other player in the modern era.   He could and really should have left many times before.

I won't begrudge if he does decide to go and wish him well, it's been an absolute privilege to watch him play these last few years.   

I am sure he meant what he said but how can you blame anyone for wanting to rise to the very top of their profession and show everyone they are the best there is by playing at the highest level.

I don't think he's going and I pray to go he isn't but he'll go with my best wishes.  He's proven over and over again what this club means to him.

Why sign a contract after a relegation battling season though? Then after a season of huge progression move on? Direct quotes from Jack, “ after I heard the owners plans for the club  I had to stay”  he clearly see’s and thinks we’re going places or we would have gone every other seasons he’s been linked away.

Not that simple unfortunately 

The rumours are generating traffic on social media, that traffic can be converted in to marketing pounds

Even if Jack has absolutely no intention of leaving he can let all this guff happen whilst in the background him and his agent can be on the phone to Nike, to nivea, to Hugo boss to whoever else they choose with evidence that the most talked about PL player this summer is Jack Grealish, the most in demand player this summer is Jack Grealish 

The speculation is great for him even if he's not going

You could also make a claim that it's great for the villa too for the same reasons... 

Very good points. He has over 3m followers on his Instagram now. That has grown very rapidly indeed!

Football needs to get rid of agents asap. Go to Independent FA appointed representatives for those too thick to understand a contract package.

They are actual parasites. Why tolerate them?

And also, imagine after all the corruption charges Man City are facing, and all the debacle over the ESL, having to hand them our best player and captain?

I'm a pretty tough cookie, I can stomach a lot, have been through a lot. But I would struggle with that.

I know from our old h&v days Maz how much you detest city - it would be a tough blow to take ☹️

Any player who doesn't play for Aston Villa is effectively competing against us and therefore trying to beat us. 

Grealish leaving us whilst we're on the cusp of becoming a top team in a few seasons will leave a bad taste. 

I couldn't care less about him being a Villa fan he's a truly world class player that we need to keep to realise the dream of winning things.

I'm guessing you're on of those that boo'd Gareth Barry after giving us 12 years

I recall hearing something along these lines when Shay Given left Newcastle for Man City.

Someone saying he deserves to go after giving us 12 years loyal service, and his mate counter acting by saying and Newcastle have been loyally depositing £60,000 per week in his bank account for 12 years.

If he does go then I'll look forward to McGinn going through him when we play City at VP

One of the biggest clubs in the world...

They're a medium sized club, artificially bloated by the ill gotten gains of successive corrupt regimes. There's nothing special about them at all, and their house of cards is going to collapse soon if there's any justice.

Don't mistake having some of the best players in the world currently with being one of the biggest clubs in the world. Two very, very different things. $hitty will always be smalltime.
