If he wants to come back in a few years while he’s still in his prime and help us win trophies, then sure. But if he tries to come back washed at age 36 for some sort of nostalgic “last ride with my club” BS then he can not even bother 

He's got one chance to come back and that's tonight, anything else and he can do one.

A lot of the shine of football has been lost for me. I always knew it was a soul-less money making machine, but there was always hope under the surface that the mold could be broken with a bit of luck and careful planning. We had the perfect setup for it, but even that wasn't immune from being picked at by the status quo.

Yeah, I’m not hurt. I understand it, it’s just boring. What a boring choice to make.

This tweet is absolutely hilarious.

It bothers the plastics from Oil City not one bit. Why? Because he said it before most of their fans started following them!

Fair enough but did you really see us making the champions league this season or winning a trophy. We are still two or three years away from doing that and Grealish is mid twenties.  

No but getting to the Europa league this year didn’t seem so out of the question.

If he went to United last year, I'd totally understand it and would be watching his career with interest. There's a legitimate challenge there and room to prove himself. It's going to be tough for them to make ground on City, but if they do it'd be very satisfying and rewarding.

Going to City though? He'll have a trophy under his belt this weekend without even kicking a ball. How boring is that. This is our 3rd captain they've taken from us in 12 years :lol:

If Grealish is viewing all of this as strictly business, then perhaps so should we. And if we do, we will see that flipping Jack for 4-5 other top players puts us in a much better position. 

So while I'm sad that we won't enjoy his silky, languid moves as a Villa player, I'm really excited about all these new signings. 

Europa League is in our sights.

Nah I’m gone now.  I just wanted something concrete and the photo of him in the Man City car got me there.  I’m in the angry phase now!

All the fluffy stuff now from others about wishing him well and we shouldn’t be call him a snake just grates at me at the moment.

One of our own turns his back on us, he’s a snake and he can go f##k himself!

You're about 48 hours behind the rest of us mate. Enjoy the ride 😂

I love this whole "boring" argument.  It's utterly bizarre.

My guess is it’ll be something along the lines of:

”Couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play for the Great Guardiola and KDB.”

“Close mates with a bunch of the guys from being on the England squad.”

“Want to compete with and against the best in the world.” 
 

 

close mates ex temates say thanks pal

Jack did the exact same thing, just spaced 10 months apart :lol: 

No he didn't?  Didn't mention loyalty at all or being a certain "type of guy".

I'm sure that's how NSWE and Purslow see it.  I'm not going to be too bitter about it, even if I have lost a bit of money.  I think as a hard-nosed business decision both sides will be better off.  We move on.

I'm sure it wasn't Jack's intention, but by leaving he's given us a golden opportunity to stop being "Grealish's team" and become one of the most exciting units in the Premier League.

A one man team has a low ceiling and by finishing eleventh last season we were banging our heads on that ceiling.

Some excellent recruiting by our management (and I don't think we're finished yet) means that we can genuinely compete for a top seven finish without infringing the slightly loosened FFP rules.

Onwards and upwards .... Thanks Jack.

Is it? I understand he's a professional and strives for success and honours, but how satisfying is that success if it's completely unchallenging? We're talking about a team that hasn't lost a League Cup game for 5 years because they have players of Jack's quality as reserves. They're so far clear of the rest of the league it's kind of funny.

Do you think Villa fans will be open to him coming back in the future?

Not me. He couldn't give the club any of his real prime years in my book. Legacy tarnished because of the manner after the contract renewal and the shit he come out with on signing the new deal. To think he'd been planning this at the back end of last season would not surprise me if this is why we were reluctant to bring him back. To concerned about himself.

Yeah, he given us some great moments. We've watched him grow, but lets not also forget how much the fans invested in him over the years, elevating him as much as anything. 

You don't snake off to win trophies and then come back when you've finished poncing about like some come home hero. FFS, what is the world coming to. 

I'm not in too much on us bringing Young back either but Jackanory is another level of turncoat in my book.

Might seem petty to some but that's me unfortunately when it comes to Villa. VTID and militant with it.

reporter on talksport just defending citeh saying he has to, its ridiculous that people are saying they have just bought success and that they've only ever broken the uk transfer record twice. You have to admire their ambition trying to sign Grealish and kane, they mean business, very admirable too that they are going for English players. ffs, give me strength. We've got numpties on here too saying its not all about money, wobble youre heads.

Oh and suck shit Jack.
