IsAC regulars will be aware that, for my sins, I’m an Aston Villa supporter. Following in the footsteps of my dad and grandad, I attended my first game at Villa Park in 1958, a 3-0 win over Burnley. The programme from that match hangs in a claret and blue frame on my wall, and I’ve been to goodness knows how many games home and away since. We’ve occasionally hit the heights over the years, but for the most part, following the Villa hasn’t been easy. It’s been a labour of love, not about the pursuit of glory.
Having laid out my Villa ‘credentials’ so to speak, you’ll understand my pain with regard to this particular cunting, but a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. I’m calling out Villa star Jack Grealish for making a twat of himself and bringing the club into disrepute (again).
Grealish recently put a post on soshul meeja, strongly urging his followers to adhere to government advice during the Coronavirus emergency; to stay home, only leave for essentials such as food and medicines, and observe ‘social distancing’. Good work Jack, you might think, that’s a responsible thing to do. However, what did ‘Brain of Britain’ candidate Jacko then do only a few hours later? Why, he went to what reports are calling a ‘late night party’ at the home of former Villa waste of space Ross McCormack. On leaving the party, he crashed his Range Rover, damaging two other cars in the process. I assume that in so doing, hypocrite Jack has broken club stipulations on player behaviour at the moment.
Grealish has since apologised for his ‘stupidity’. The word is that Villa are fining him £150k, which is going straight to charity. Now Grealish has shown this season that he’s a very fine player, with the potential to become an exceptional one, and it seemed that he’d matured, leaving his ‘Jack the Lad’ reputation behind. Now he’s gone and shot himself in the foot again, demonstrating that he’s another potential role model who just can’t quite step up. He says that he’s sorry for what he’s done, but is it a case of regret at being found out?
Made yourself look a bit of a cunt again, haven’t you Jack?
