Aston Villa managed to keep hold of Jack Grealish during the summer transfer window despite strong interest from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.
At one point, it appeared almost certain that Grealish would head for Spurs, but the 23-year-old stayed with Villa beyond the end of the summer transfer window.
There is no question that he is a huge talent, and on form, is Villa’s best player, and probably one of the biggest threats in the Championship.
Grealish has only managed one assist from eight Championship matches this term, however, and has found it very difficult to make his mark in a number of games.
Villa returned to winning ways in the Championship with a 2-0 success over Rotherham United on Tuesday night, with Grealish playing the whole match at left wing.
The Villa fans were not impressed with the 5ft 9in ace’s performance, however, and many have taken to social media to reveal their displeasure.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
McGinn is a better player than Grealish !!!
There, I said it !!#avfc

I think some of hits trouble is he’s been made to believe he’s the saviour and by far the most important person in the team. Gone to his head I think.

Something isn’t right with Grealish at the minute – he looks so low on confidence compared to last season! I imagine being stuck out on the wing and barely involved due to shit tactics doesn’t help the situation!! #avfc

Grealish playing like he did 2 seasons ago. Lost that extra drive and intensity we saw last season. #AVFC
