I've defended Jack more than most in this thread, but nothing is being 'taken from him', he wanted this move and will have known this would be required. Maybe 'sad to see Jack willingly give up the style that made him such a great player to watch'. 

He looks too afraid to deviate, Jack was a free spirit, he doesn't look the same to me, and he has lost that beaming smile.

He has made his bed, and he has to lie on it......it wouldn't surprise me, that in a couple of seasons, he moves on.

I hope he does well, but I just don't see it.....where's all those little one,twos, disappeared to.....He passes and they turn their back and move it in the opposite direction.

Having said all of that, I think we will progress nicely, without him.

It's probably good in a way that we've shifted a player who could do pretty much whatever he wanted at the club for a huge fee.

I think hindsight will go on to prove that to be true.

I don't wish this on him.....but wouldn't it be ironic, if he lost his England place while playing for them.

I honestly think he was playing better for us, on the evidence, I have seen so far.

Early days, I know.

He will play every single England game until Southgate is manager.

I actually do now. At first I followed him and wished he'd do well. But I notice that I don't feel like that any more. He's becoming an ex like all the rest.

Benteke was someone I actually wished well for a few months. He was a shining light in a dismal spell for us. I know people hated him for going to Liverpool but I was o.k with it and wanted him to do well there. Flopped and not really bothered about him since he went to Palace other than the usual Bobzy fanboy posts.😉

With this one I just don't care. He'll win stuff at Man. City like Barry and Milner did (would be hilarious if he didn't but it's a remote chance while Pep is there) but one trophy for us would mean more than winning the league cup with them.

In the last few weeks we've shown we've got some very good players still at this club so I'd rather post on here about them than go on and on about a former player.

Yeah I think I was a bit harsh questioning it like that tbf. My immediate thought waa that Grealish is better than both, but Benteke had genuine world class potential when younger, and I always rated Gueye.

Just always thought Grealish is a very special player, which he is, but he has to show it at City now.

No worries! yeah what I meant was we sold Tekkers at his peak value and did nothing after. Gueye we sold below his peak value who went on to be a top player with far greater value.

I suppose another way of saying it is, we saw the best of Benteke, we never saw the best of Gueye (not his fault).

Whether we saw the best of Jack Grealish is an open question in my mind (although I lean towards "yes we did" its gonna take a few years to find out.)

Yeah get what you mean completely! Really is gonna be fascinating to see how he gets on at City in the longer term.
