Hi guys,

First post since June 2014!

Does anyone know if our interest in Grealish has gone for this window? I kind of have in my head that if we miss out on Sanchez, then Grealish could be used across the front positions and midfield. I know he's the one Ole wanted to replace Pogba. Could we possibly get Grealish and then Pogba to make the move away next season?

Thanks for all of the great content from Ed002 for the past however many years.

I don't think the club or Ole sees Grealish as a Pogba replacement. Ed2 has mentioned multiple times the club saw Grealish as a versatile player who could cover multiple roles. Whether the signing of Don ends our interest in JG or not that I don't know but I don't think JG can play on the RW as effectively so I would think we may not move for him now.

he wasnt being looked at for replacing pogba. that was saul. but with pogba staying grelish was still being looked at as he offers something different to bruno

but for the price villa want we should stay well clear, he's not even that good. an upgrade on lingard.

DVDB is much better than Grealish with Champions League experience and comes with no baggage.

Saul and SMS were touted as possible Pogba replacement.

Was Donny VDB not also touted as a Pogba replacement?

Or maybe we praise and criticise Matt Judge amd leave Ed out of it altogether.
