He'll play in this summer's Euros unless his form falls of a cliff.
 
He's better than Maddison
 
 
 
 
Wouldn't agree with that. Maddison looks like the more rounded player - the type that tend to be more suited to international football than the likes of Grealish.
He’s not fat at all!

Grealish is a top player no doubt but better than Maddison ? Not a hope. Plus he cost Villa a cpuple of goals this season by getting robbed badly while in posesion something Southgate will be well aware of.

Well if there's one thing that we learned from the last nations league is that the results ment f**k all as we still ended up in the play offs. Any one suspected of jumping ship should be called up to play in the autumn and if they don't play should be told where to go.
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

I totally disagree with you. He is a quality player and has shown it on a consistent basis.

I've never been that impressed by Maddison all the way back to his Norwich days. I think Grealish probably is a better footballer, but therein lies a problem with choosing England; it doesn't really matter who's better because Maddison is more in vogue with the media, and thus he'll be the one who's picked.
We're decent enough..

+1 on this... a good opportunity to try a new formation and get some players capped, not just to see if they are serious about ireland but to also give players like knight and molumby some competitive senior experience.

One of the only reasons Whelan, McLean and Hendrick will play in the playoffs is their experience.

I take it in appearance  as opposed to style of play?

I enjoy watching Grealish, but i dont think he will have much of an England career, if he has any at all. He's a throwback to flair players of old. Good eye for a pass, flair player etc but lacking in his other contributions to the team. That'll only take him so far in the hyper-competitive Barclays Premier these days

I think grealish will get less than 5 England caps and will become a cult player of our time as one of those lads who was frustrating, talented, never got to show it at the elite level, but Mundial will be interviewing people in the Holte End 20 years from now about what he was like in his pomp.

I think grealish is excellent it sickens me every time I see him play that Southgate turned his head.
He would have been a massive player for us.
Especially now that we can buy a goal he would have got us playing.
Lads used rave about Wes if grealish was brought on board when he should have been he would have ended up with double the caps wes had and treble the goals and that’s not a dig at Wes.

A way bigger loss than rice

Looks like he's going on loan to Lincoln

Like I said the last day, Lincoln have been linked with several Irish u21 players

Interesting and he can link up with Elbouzedi there.
If they both started getting game time then it would be a team to watch.

Starring for Lincoln again today with Elbouzedi on the bench, would be good if these two have a good 2nd half of the season

as an English fan, I hope grealish gets in the squad now for the euros  with kanes injury,  hes a much better option than someone like ings. Rashford can play as the central striker,  with grealish as a wide option,  though we do have the possibility of a certain Jamie vardy.  You are right though, attacking wise, England have some incredible talent. Sancho, sterling , odoi, maddison,  rashford,  kane, grealish,  abraham.  Possibly only second to france
