Aston Villa fans on Twitter have reacted to the uncovering of an old Jack Grealish tweet ahead of this weekend’s crucial Second City derby.
The tweet, as seen below, states that Grealish’s dream would be to score the winning goal against Birmingham City at the Holte End. When you consider the current circumstances, the 22-year-old may get his wish if he plays his cards right on Sunday.
It is no secret that the attacking midfielder has been a polarising figure at Villa Park over the last few years, with his exploits away from the pitch landing him in hot water on more than one occasion.
With that being said, nobody can deny the passion that the hometown boy has when it comes to the Villans.
Villa fans have been forced to stick up for him when other clubs called Grealish out for his behaviour, but thankfully, things finally seem to be turning a corner under Steve Bruce.
In fact if anything its injuries that have been the more prevalent story for the youngster, with his kidney problems earlier on in the season costing him two months of playing time.
Thankfully for Villa fans, Grealish appears to be in the form of his life and it is happening at the perfect time.
So while some may be choosing to dream of a late Agbonlahor winner, it seems you would be better placed to lump your money on Grealish popping up with a game changer late in the day at Villa Park.
Following the revelation of the aforementioned tweet, we have put together a selection of the best Villa fan reactions to the news:

Don’t try too hard though Jack or get wound up by them. They’ll probably try. Just do, what you do! Chill and cruise through it.— The Villa Decree (@TheVillaDecree) February 8, 2018
