Lots of noise on the radio and social media about Grealish not getting into the England squad. I do find it a bit odd.
What else could he have done this season to get in? He’s carried Villa to survival.
My own theory is that I don’t think Southgate wants to tie him into England unless he’s absolutely sure he’s got a place for him. If he gets an England cap, then never plays again for England, he’s thrown away a chance to be a huge player for Ireland.25th August 2020 at 5:40 pm #161601sean the sailorParticipant595 pts
I’d have him over Maddison Ed. Is Maddison in the squad?
He’s a very good player.25th August 2020 at 5:44 pm #161605steveosnakeeyeParticipant335 pts
I hear Southgate is a stickler and doesn’t like outside shit like Harry and Stirling this week… and isn’t Grealish meant to be a bit of a wide boy? May be wrong on all that 🤣25th August 2020 at 5:56 pm #161611sean the sailorParticipant595 pts
I’d have him over foden, Mount and Maddison all day long25th August 2020 at 6:25 pm #161618maverick1973Participant648 pts
Mad not having him in the squad,unless he has done someffin to upset Gareth.25th August 2020 at 7:02 pm #161629AnonymousInactive111 pts
Steveo bit tough for Southgate to say that when he’s recalled Kyle Walker to the squad. Hardly covered himself in glory last few months.
Also interested to know why Calvin Phillips is now good enough for England but wasnt last season. Must be him being an established premier league now.
Southgate seems to pick maddison just for shits and giggles. Drags him away to duty and then doesn’t give him a minute on the pitch.
Think Southgate is very overrated. Yes he got England to a semi final but throughout the tournament actually lost as many games as he won.25th August 2020 at 7:21 pm #161637
Agree with that Paxton. Southgate has done OK. Nothing more.
Agree with Sean too. Grealish is more deserving of an England spot than any of Foden and Maddison. Arguably Mount, too.25th August 2020 at 7:22 pm #161639
This says it all
Last year Southgate said that Jack Grealish must gain more Premier League experience to earn a call-up ⏳
Grealish: 36 PL appearances. 8 goals. 6 assists. 9 MOTMS ⭐️
Phillips: 0 PL appearances ⚪️

I think Grealish would improve any of the top four sides, cracking player.1st September 2020 at 10:56 am #165047steveosnakeeyeParticipant335 pts

Agree with 442.
I think Grealish probably needs a move to a top PL to take him up a level of two but understandably after looking United bound United signed DVB for half of the figure they had seemingly been quoted by Villa and there lies Grealish’s problem I don’t think any of the top PL Clubs will be prepared to pay that sort of money for him.1st September 2020 at 1:09 pm #165119AdlabParticipant313 pts
