Default Would you say that Jack Grealish will be as good as one of Mbappe, Messi, or?

Cristiano Ronaldo?

I'm asking this because on Twitter a couple of nights ago there was a Villa fan going around saying to all of the Blues and Villa fans that Jack Grealish will be as good as Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Mbappe.

Now I get that we all love our teams and our star players within our teams, but it can't just be me that thinks this is deluded?

I'm not meaning to be nasty btw, I want your honest opinion, do you think Squealish can be as good as those three players some day? Yes or no?

Poll will be coming shortly.

Iíll just say that many top football guys , pundits , great ex players have all raced about the lad ..

I rate him so highly that Iíd actually build the England team around him ...
although I said the very same thing about Glen Hoddle all those years ago and the England manager ignored me then as well

Not really seen him do much to warrant that kind of attention. Just an average player, not bad, not necessarily good.

I notice him flicking his hair, and his child size shin pads more than i do any actual footballing ability tbh.

Edit - I actually see him more in the Beckham category. Again, not bad, good on his day, but not world class, wants to be a pop star type. (and yes, i think David Beckham was overrated)

Heís been playing well but the best player in the whole league over the last two months? I personally think Alexander Arnold or even Danny Ings have done better.

I agree.

I think that Grealish is a good player for Villa, but I can't help but get Ross Barkley vibes from him where the Media overrated him for ages imo.

Fair points ..

Best midfielder in that case - which is incredibly impressive given the wealth of marvellous midfielders in the league

Messi/Ronaldo levels? Never

But heís the best midfielder England have and I donít feel silly saying that anymore. I remember people laughing when we said heís much better than Maddison and in a completely different league to Mount, but he is. Much more to his game, better physique and better with the ball. Always gets wrongfully credited with being a diver and going over too easily when heís only been booked once for diving in his whole career (and it wasnít even a dive). Gets fouled constantly because players canít handle him. Teams put 2 men on him and still canít get close to him.

He has the *potential* to be up there in the De Bruyne bracket of midfielders if he chooses his next club well this summer.

Will be gutted to see him go. The best Villa player in my lifetime. Special talent

24 years of age and he hasn't got an England cap yet.

Not as good as Harry Winks.

I do personally believe he has earned the tag of being a diver, if he weren't English I do believe that the Referees would book him for diving more often.

I agree with you that he is better than Mount who's sadly not living up to potential at the moment.

And this League Cup final will be a huge test for him, we'll really get to see what him and the rest of the team are made of when facing the biggest match of their careers so far.

Tbf Man City/De Bruyne also have a lot of pressure on them as well as they desperately need to win a trophy.

This fixture does remind me of the Arsenal vs Birmingham final back in 2011 where I had a feeling that it wouldn't be so clear cut at the time.

I do wonder what the odds would be for a Villa to win 2-1 with Grealish and El Ghazi being the goalscorers?

Either way good luck Nathan, and maybe Grealish will stay if you win a trophy and stay up in the Premier League.
