Plenty of Aston Villa supporters have been reacting on social media to Paul Merson’s comments regarding Jack Grealish.
“Without being horrible, they’re a relegation team without Grealish in the team. Not this season, but if Jack ended up leaving, you’d expect them to be well down in the bottom half of the table.”
Will Grealish stay at Villa this summer?
Villa fans react
@AVFC_News shared Merson’s comments on social media, which led to numerous fans giving their thoughts.
This is what some had to say, with many in agreement with the 53-year-old and one describing his comments as ‘big claims’.
“Hard to disagree”
“That’s what happens when you build a team around 1 player and that player gets injured”
“Not wrong though is he! One lucky win against Leeds since he got injured, we seem to be getting worse each game. GK, back 4 and OW are class but most of the rest… Luiz, McGinn, Barkley, El Ghazi, Trez, Davis and too many others, none of them get in any other top 10 team. #avfc“
“On current form it’s bob on”
“judging by the way we’ve played these past games I can’t really defend that”
“Paul Merson saying what every Villa fan knows which is why I’m struggling with DS not getting any criticism he needs to develop the team”
“Big claims that half our squad are doing their absolute best to confirm when given the chance”
