Aston Villa scraped over the line yesterday with a 3-2 win over Wigan Athletic, thanks to a late winner from Bikir Bjarnason.
It made it two wins from two for the Villans and manager Steve Bruce after a difficult summer in the transfer window.
One of the key things for Villa during the summer was keeping hold of star midfielder Jack Grealish, with the club rejecting the advances of Spurs to maintain the young midfielder as part of their squad going into the Championship season.
Grealish appears to be a big fan of life at Villa Park, and he took to Twitter following yesterday’s win to voice his pleasure at sneaking a last minute win.
Great win today, that’s what it’s all about, last minute wins! On to Tuesdays game in the cup! Thankyou to the villa fans for the wonderful reception ❤️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/WPEwgRaGhC

The Villa fans clearly love Grealish as well, and they were out in force to sing the praises of their key man following the game.
As usual, we at FLW were on hand to take a look at just what was being said, and it’s safe to say that Villa fans are delighted to have kept hold of the youngster…
Super Jack. Best in the league by far.

Jack, you’re well loved here. Give it one more season to get us back in the Prem, I’m sure once we’re there we will fly with the new owners.
