A class act Grealish
Far better than Maddison 

Grealish is the main man in Villa's team everything goes through him, whereas Maddison is one of handful of main men in Leicester's team, simple stats don't always tell the full story.

Some could argue that Villa's team isn't as good as Leicester's, which would be correct but how many times have we seen over the years where certain players tend to thrive in their little goldfish bowls and then suddenly bomb when they aren't the main man anymore and are in a far more competitive environment?

Far better than Maddison is a ridiculous thing to say.

Looks like he is getting on quite well with Lincoln so far.

I've actually watched (on that iFollow 80's feed) Lincoln a couple of times to see himself and Scully.
Both playing well enough and settling in nicely.
Good to see them getting regular pro-football and it can only help them realise their potential.
As for what that potential will be, only time will tell.

Wow a year since the last post on the newly-called up lad and it was an excellent post, to be fair Embarrassed

I don't think this callup is as left-field as we may think.
With McCarthy out we only have Cullen as a specialist holding midfielder.  Sure, we've tried the likes of Hendrick and Hourihane in there but that's not their forte, especially Hourihane.

Coventry is a holding midfielder all day long and having him in now is a positive.
I'm curious who will backfill him in the 21s.

Yeah, he was an obvious omission.
The 21s meet up today so hopefully some news emerges.

For me Molumby is a holding midfielder, that's where he played for the u21s under Kenny. He would always be the player to receive the ball from the back four.

Molumby has bags of running in him but he's not great in the final third of the pitch so he's not an end to end midfielder.

If Molumby focuses on becoming a number 6 I think he'll have a fantastic career.

Not sure about that. Coventry was the sitter of the two. Not to deny that Molumby would take it off the back four, but Jayson was the box-to-box mid, and he was the one of the two who advanced forward. 

Given his energy, Jayson is a mid who likes to drive forward with the ball and carry the team up the pitch. Unfortunately his technical ability can indeed let him down in the final third, this why Connor Ronan complimented him so well in that final third. 

The Under 21's had a lovely balance in midfield between the three. A shame that we don't have a technically gifted number 10 available to us.

Agree that he played as a box to box midfielder but I don't think he is very good in that role. This is where he's been deployed at Preston but he's not as good in the final third as someone like Knight or smallbone.

Only my opinion but for me molumby is really good at breaking up the play and winning back possession, he's very good at receiving the ball from the back four and either driving forward into the opposition midfield or finding the pass to a more advanced player. Hes got good pace and energy to burn.

If he could just focus on that and look to get the ball to more attacking midfielders I feel he'll be a great player for us.

At the moment I watch him and he covers every blade of grass on the pitch and burns himself out. He then gets caught out of position and leaves gaps in the midfield. 

In short I think he tries to do too much of everything and not focus on the things he does very well.

Declan Rice out for a month or more. Fingers crossed Conor gets a chance and stakes a claim. Probably a place up for grabs for next season with Noble reaching the end of his career

They couldn't find a space for him on the bench it seems. They found space for two sub keepers though.

Maybe he had a knock, but if he didn't that surely tells him all he needs to know about how he is rated there.

I suspect he had a knock, maybe that was why he left the Ireland squad. He is highly rated by the fans and club insiders, there is a view that he is the natural successor to Rice and that he should be picked ahead of Noble ( google 'Conor Coventry News Now' to see some of the comments). Must be some chance of him making the first team.

Didn’t realise he left the squad?

Didn't realise that either. That would suggest he has an injury of some sort, which would make more sense to be fair.
