its relative......How can it have set us backwards considering we didn't have a striker last season either? Yes, the others have improved but I think the impact of Grealish is going to be massively greater than some believe.
If we havent improved (stood still) and others have...we have slipped backwards. We cant continue to rely on false 9, other teams are stronger as well
I dont believe Grealish will have that greater impact unless it is thrust upon him and he grabs it due to the absence of KDB for long periods of time.
I guess it comes down to how much someone believes that Grealish is going to improve us....what I agree with is that he allows us more flexibility in our approach (ie for starters we dont have to play Raheem on the left)
