I'm actually glad he is gone. Not because he wasn't a good player, but more to do with how restricted it made us. He would start every game and be the focal point of attacks, while dictating a one gear tempo and making us predictable.

There is a greater fluidity this season, with Buendia and Bailey starting on the bench to accommodate a different formation today. Against Chelsea, going with an unexpected formation put us on the front foot in the first half. Last season we stuck with one formation to accommodate Grealish and suffered in some games because of it. 

Not to mention the commercial side of things. Everything was about Jack. Wonder how it made the other players feel.
 

It was basically Jack and the rest.

People will get bored after a season or two.

Delph was talked about for a long time. Eventually (most) people moved on.

Personally as I've said before I feel Grealish is irrelevant now. But in fairness, it's still pretty fresh.

Probably helped that Delph stopped being a footballer in about 2017

I think we will eventually be playing better without him.

Most definitely, despite how good we were last season our style of play this season  is unrecognisable from last, he didn’t outgrow us we outgrew him, and once again I post in this stupid thread 🤦🏿

I think we will be playing better now without Jack, that doesn't mean we wouldn't be even better with Jack still here.

Some of us might hate what's happened but it doesn't change the fact that he is a sublime talent.

So we win 3-0 and this becomes the most bumped thread? Seem we have more Jack Grealish fans here than Villa fans

You're blaming the Grealish "fans" for it getting bumped when we won, but it was clearly people mocking Grealish as a result :)

It's kind of irrelevant though. Yeah we might end up better without him because we buy lots of new players and develop as a team and eventually become better.

But can anyone really say with a straight face that not having Grealish is better than having him?

Devastated when he left. 

It hurts but I think we're probably better off with the FFP assistance and Bailey, Ings + Buendia yeah. Would I have chosen that option? Not in August when I thought he was staying no.

Anyone saying he was overrated or stuff like that is just kidding themselves. That's OK though, people have different ways of confronting it. It's been unpleasant.

Buendia would have signed anyway, Smith confirmed it.

And yes when you put it like that then it could work, but purely in terms of the player a team is always going to be better with a player like that than without.

I’ll have to agree with you there. I was adamant before he left he was absolutely world class and would improve literally any team in football. I have no love for the silly haired, glass shinned, lockdown breaking little Love Island contestant wannabe anymore, but he’s an astonishingly gifted footballer. I’ll reserve the right to be hypocritical about my feelings about Jack the individual, but I’m not even going to pretend our team is somehow better off without him in it.
