I’m old school I’m afraid. Am I one eyed?...yep, I never even cheered in italia 90 when platt scored for England, I wasn’t on my own either, different people different times. To me greasey is a slimy, cheating, vile Gloria Huniford lookalike who will look an also ran if/when he goes to a big club. He was and always will be a pissweasel of the highest order to me and the fact I’ve read this thread has made me feel dirty.

Southgate couldn’t give 2 fecks about his behaviour.

Maddison dropped out of one of the last squads through illness and was then pictured in a casino while England were playing. He’s since been picked and played.

Southgate only cares about who can give him the best opportunity to win games (as he should). On current form Grealish offers this over nearly any other English player.
Tell you what that crack is really moreish.

I know that it's not great form posting that and then refusing to say anything, but as it's not stuff that I've encountered first hand, it's not really fair for me to post second-hand knowledge, even as rumour.

I think when the Villa boys are scorned after he leaves, there will be all manner of stuff coming out about him.

Feck that tell us anyway. Doesn't even have to be true as long as its nice and slanderous.

Bellingham won't play for England before Grealish, but he will win substantially more caps.

Without doubt a talented footballer but wastes that by falling over anytime anyone farts within 10 yards of him. Think most fans in the prem have sussed this. Remember reading that Ron Saunders wanted to sign Bob Latchford for the Vile and Bob said he'd never sign for them. Same rule applies I wouldn't want to see him in a Blues shirt.... Ever. Sums up everything I hate about the Aston Village Historians Society...in one player.

Looking at his body language in the Man City mauling I think hes realsed Villa are a million miles away from challenging (despite their delusional fans) and like TF back in the 70s I see his transfer request coming sooner rather than later.

He's really kicked on this season, thought he'd be found out in the Prem but he seems to be thriving on the intensity of the league.

A cert to be called up now, which is no less than what he deserves.

I feel sick.

You're only watching him on the ball, where he's very good. Watch him off the ball... where he's a lazy liability. Which is why he's been moved into a 10 in a 4411

I didn't see any highlights of the previous Watford v Villa game, but did our own Troy get close enough to JG to leave a calling card? I'd be interested to know how Nigel Pearson will be setting up to deal with JG as stopping him more or less nullifies Villa.

As regards JG in the future - he doesn't work hard enough off the ball for a Liverpool to be interested. Internationally - yes ok against Malta or Malawi but against the top teams - not at all convinced.

You don’t know why you’re talking about, he’s playing on the wing.

Not seen him that often but obviously a good player. The games I have seen he always starts very slow but got better as the game goes on.

Goes to ground too easily but many do nowadays. It’s the histrionics that’s does me.

That’s why I believe he won’t get called up. Too many strops, too much diving and not enough grafting/chasing back. Southgate has built a club like mentality at international level. I doubt going into this tournament he will add a player who doesn’t work for the team.
