  1. Tbf I was very impressed with him in the Europa final the other year. He's not in the same league as the others mentioned though, and as a winger was fairly one dimensional IMO.
  2. I don't think it does. When we've had good performing English players I've never been crying out for them to be in the squad or starting or anything. I just think Grealish is special. The only way I would be biased towards him is that style of playmaker is my fav type of player.
  3. He won't say a bad word about the other users who show consistent bias. Just calls me out on it
  4. I made the same excuse for Saka when he came on the other night, so yes just like every other sub. And you're saying this as if Grealish was bad when he came on
  5. I don't know how you can watch Grealish play as much as me and not think he's a truly special player. There are plenty of very knowledgeable neutral ex pros who share my opinion. But hey ho, this has been done to death by now. No point having the debate again 👍
  6. Did Italy not produce 6 on target and 9 off target? While we produced 1 on target and 4 off? And they had 62% possession, on top of that.
  7. I don't spout it for the sake of it, or because of club bias, I genuinely believe he's that good.
  8. Kinda tough when you're thrown on with little time, when the team's under the cosh with hardly any possession. Still got two assists in limited minutes though 👌
  9. I'm not desperate for anything. You wrongly made an assumption based on no facts whatsoever and laughed off any opinion to the contrary. I questionned it at the time and it's since come out that your assumption was wrong. What excuses have I made about Grealish exactly? I even made a genuine one for your fav player Saka last night, so it would probably have been along the same lines.
  10. And just because we've got to a final, I'd still put at least four sides in Europe ahead of us. Italy Spain Portugal France
  11. And where's your owning up after slating me last night regarding pen taker selection, and since being proved wrong?
  12. Look at the way he's got Brighton playing. I'm not even sure what formation he plays, assuming it's a 433, but the football they play is so easy on the eye, especially considering they don't have one of the better squads in the league. If they could finish, they'd have had a much better season than what they did. I think it would be exciting to see what he could do with England.
  13. I would love Potter to be given a go. I don't think he'd have too much risk of ruining his rep should he fail either, the fans would back his style of football.
  14. Having said that about passing through the lines. In some games it appeared as we were actively trying not to play 'risky' passes, so have to wonder if Southgate requested our CMs to keep it simple.
  15. The problem with England is central midfield. We had no one to run with the ball and pass consistently through the lines. We all cried out for him to try Mount deeper with either Grealish or Foden in the 8, or even play Bellingham as a box-to-boxer, but he didn't experiment in that area at all.
