Jack Grealish just cannot turn down a top club like Tottenham reckons former Villa ace
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham have been handed a boost in their bid to land Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish after his former teammate, Gabby Agbonlahor, admitted that it would be hard for the Englishman to turn down a top side like Spurs.

Grealish has been the driving force of the Aston Villa team for a very long time and he helped them get promoted to the Premier League again, last season.

They are currently fighting against relegation and he remains an important part of their bid to remain in the Premier League.

After their 1-0 win over Arsenal, he admitted that he didn’t know if he would remain a Villa player after this season (Football London).

Tottenham and Manchester United are two English teams looking to sign him and Agbonlahor has admitted that he would understand if Grealish left them in the summer for one of those teams, claiming that he will not turn down joining a big team and it is fine.

The former Villa centre-forward told Talksport: “Jack loves Aston Villa. I’ve had the pleasure of being captain of that club and being a fan as well, and he’s in a similar situation, he just loves the club.

“He’s been outstanding since the return. You look at his performance yesterday, he was the one creating things, he was the one tracking back, throwing his body on the line, making interceptions.

“He just showed yesterday how much he wants to keep this club up, everyone has seen how he has carried Aston Villa this season, really, and they’ve given themselves an amazing chance.

“You know what football fans are like, they never want to lose their best players, but for me as a Villa fan if he can keep us up and then had a move where he’s got a chance of playing Champions League football, playing with elite stars, then I’d give him my blessing. I’d understand that.

“I might get a bit of stick for this, but it’s what I’d do in his position.

“He’s got a chance to join a club like Manchester United, or Tottenham, whoever is interested in him, and he’s got the chance to win trophies, to play in the Champions League and maybe a better chance to get into the England squad.

“At this time of his career, he’s coming into his prime at 25, so he can’t really turn down a chance of going to a top club, you just can’t do it.”

My point is Hoddle & Waddle compared to Davis & Marwood.

Tappaspur is right. League is want u want. If u r home to most teams attack more. When u play the bigger boys u adjust tactics , maybe a bit different away too. Wasnt the prob with Poch no plan B. Arsenal won title with flair but had great players, WENGER but good defence , inherited from GEORGE. Ultimately you must balance the team. Our forwards were far better & had more flare than Arsenals in Grahams time, but who won league. Defence has to be priority

Well whatever we missed the boat on Jack we couldn’t afford him now. Still we have that bundle of energy N’dummy instead.

Gabby said he couldn’t turn down the chance to play Champions league football, so why the link to Spurs? I don’t like him, I think he’s a poser, otherwise why does he wear shorts 2 sizes too small and ankle socks? Much prefer Eze from QPR. See his goal last night?

Adam lalanna is a player I’ve always liked (balance) he can play. We missed the boat with him but if he turned up at Tottenham for free he’d play his way into the team fast.

He used to be very good.. My mate is a bindipper and he reckons he’s struggled to get back to where he was after a few injuries. Much like Lamela they suddenly blighted him.

Is he 32 already? He’s linked with brighton everton and Leicester which sounds about right.. They would give him 2 or 3 yrs I guess if he stays fit and can still play anything like he used to. When he signed for scouse from saints years ago he was quality, I hoped we would get him and mane when poch came… Then Schneiderlin I thought was coming… Levy wouldnt bid against United or Liverpool.. Ended up with Wanyama.. None of those players are the same now.

Mane” wanted him badly😔 Adam L still has it in him. He’d do well at Leicester.

Same.. Mane is a beast.. We went for him and as soon as we did then the scouse swooped in.. The saints must have been well gutted losing poch to us and selling all their players to united and liverpool.

If we couldn’t bring him in when £15 million would have done it there is zero chance at £40 million minimum. Eze scored tonight, go get him and don’t mess this up.

He’s not a Jose type player, too maverick and full of flair. I personally think he’d be a great addition but then I like attacking players and attacking football. It’s the Spurs way…

More rubbish about José. What’s your definition of a flair player then? Is gedson a flair player? Has jack got more flair than all players at Tottenham now? José gonna make you look right a mug. managers dont mind their attacking players having a bit a flair. Flair is not very popular in defensive units. Go easy with the flash flair back there you lot

I agree José will make someone look a mug, just think it might be you! Win nothing playing dull football. That’s not the Spurs way!

Time will tell. I’m smiling🌚 we won’t be dull and boring when our attackers have the confidence to attack without concern. The back section soon “lock off. ” the spurs way” was not very good at winning leagues. (Great for winning cups)

After banging in 6 goals in our last two games against the foxes and the toon (two teams we have struggled against recently) Would you really define that as dull? Also putting the gooners back in their place was a joy… The spurs way the last 20 years has been dull. Win nothing. Our squad now has never known how to ‘shut up shop’ effectively and Maureen is teaching them. Regardless of his critics he’s proved time and again he is a master of tactics.. The future depends alot on Scrooge though. Will he give Maureen the players he wants? Or will he flood in more dross every transfer window.

Flair is the ability to breeze past defenders with elegance and style. Kane is a great player but lacks flair similar to Rooney… We lack flair, probably Lamela is the best we have… Jack has it in spades… Maureens teams have always been blessed with flair players, Eto, Robben, Ronaldo, Hazard etc
