Grealish has scored 15 premier league goals , the first 25 yr old to reach that milestone.
Sterling will never reach that level technically.

Sterling at:
23 had 18 prem goals in season
24 had 17 prem goals in a season
25 had 20 prem goals in a season

Wtf you on about shit loads of players have scored 15 goals before the age of 25yrs in a prem season

The new mantra about Grealish being touted by the media is that he is good at winning free kicks. Wow and here's me thinking we might need a player whose good at beating players and smashing the ball into the back of the net. We have already got a specialist in "falling over" with Raheem. Perhaps we should get Mike Channon out of retirement. He spent most of his career lying on the pitch!
I expressed a similar sentiment about that mantra meaning 'good at being fouled which certainly is not a 'quality' l look forward to watching no matter who does it. It night suit United and Ratface but not for me.
Yet l was told pretty quickly JG gets fouled because the opposition 'are scared of him'.
Here's me also preferring beating people and scoring but l can't say eithet that l am thrilled to watch the resultant poor free kicks, shots missing by miles or aimed at slabhead.
It seems something has passed me by during the pandemic.

I still don’t see it.
Nor do i, apart from his cross ( would have been cleared by a defender if it hadn't taken a deflection) i'm struggling to see what he brings over other players.
I can see something in him and believe he could be a talent but i just don't think he does enough at this moment in time, he's constantly over hyped though and gets good press, even when he's bang average.

aye lad ,you missed my point, He has scored a total of 15 goals, hardly spectacular, It was aimed at those who believe he is the second coming rather than a prospect.

I’ve always liked him and never been able to put my finger on why. Since being linked, I’ve been trying to watch him a little closer.

  • He’s fast
  • Plays at a high tempo
  • Is direct(!)
  • Puts his foot in
  • Has good end product
  • Brings other players into things
  • Always draws a man before passing it which opens up space
  • Buys fouls in dangerous areas which would be lethal with KDB/Stones/Dias/Kane
  • He always shows for the ball and never goes hiding
  • Add to that he always praises City and KDB online which suggests he’d love to come and play for us
  • He’s dangerous every time he gets the ball which is more than can be said for others in the squad, it’ll free up room for other players if he’s getting the close attention he’ll need to be kept quiet

Personally I’d love it if he came! Especially when you consider Bernardo doesn’t want to be here and seems to be off this Summer.
