    Jack Grealish

    Good to see Grealish from aston villa away with the under 16s this week. This must be the 4th or 5th squad at under16 and under17 level he has been involved in this season. Hopefully this is a good sign of his committment to us. He has brought his colleague Lewis from villa with him into the set up on this occasion.

    [Very impressive for Villa to supply so many, wonder how many will make the cut. Hopefully Jack Grealish will. Ireland are already up to their tricks of calling up English youngsters for their teams before we have had the opportunity to look at him.]

    just googled him and found a post on the villa forum by someone claiming he played Gaelic with him in Birmingham so looks like he has strong Irish links.

    If he's a Grealish, he was probably born with a beard

    He was called up to an England u16 development camp last year but decided to stay with us. His fellow u16 Aston Villa teammate Bradley Lewis played his first game for the Ireland u16's yesterday.

    Villa had six players called up to their victory shield provisional squad including grealish(who is eligible for under16s next season), Lewis and Graham a lad who played for us at under15s last season. Looks like we have lost out on Graham who is also a winger but I think we have the best of the deal if we keep Grealish! Graham is a tony Daley type Grealish is more of a Duff with passing ability!

    Absolutely. Duff is no Bergkamp. Certainly does not have that playmaker ability to open up defenses with his passing ability like Ozil does. Outstanding dribbler with super quick feet though great to see him getting back to top form and along with mcgeady the creative hub for us. I ve only seen grealish once against the north last season but he oozed class witrh his passing, dribbling and crossing. He is tiny though unlike the Graham lad

    From a KevanGrealish (presumably a close relative) on the Villa forum:

    "There is always this debate but I will say one thing is that jack is open to either england or ireland and it depends what he chooses. But as I keep on saying he is continueing to play for ireland as hes enjoying every moment of it. But apparently kenny swayne was asking about jack to jordan or callum again. So who knows? Hes taking it one step at a time and ill keep you informed. But theres so many paddys demanding jack to play for ireland, on this,greenscene and you boys in green forum ! They have great support... As for optimist I agree by saying that he didnt have a great game but not the worst either.we're hoping his confidence will grow with time and hopefully he can become as confident as he is playing with the 16's."


    Really seems still up in the air, would not be surprised at all if he changed his allegiances to England

    His brother[?} posts on YBIG. The fact that Graham from villa played with us and grealish for the under 15s against the north last season( and scored twice} and then switched to the crown under 16s this season is a good sign I think. You would have thought grealish would have gone with graham if he didnt have some feeling for us. Also the fact that in the last few under 16 squads Lewis from Villa joined him would suggest that he has good things to say about the irish set up. Also villa have at least 6 youth irish internationals which might help.

    Both Grealish and Graham are left sided wide players with Graham a year older. The big test will be in the summer when the brits pick their under 16 victory shield squad and name Grealish hopefully the fact that we offer him the chance to play under 17 will help him make the right call. Either way the best of luck to him. Hopefully FIFA will bring in a regulation that only allows players who have ever playede Gaelic to play for Ireland!!

    Grealish started for villa at weekend in their under 18 victory over chelsea which won them their league and qualified them for play off finals. He won a peno.Not bad for an under 15s player! 5 irish youth internationals played for villa at weekend who were also without their 3 under 19 internationals carruthers, williams and devine.
