Aston Villa will be hoping for a change of fortune this weekend, as the return of Championship football sees them face up against Aitor Karanka and his Forest side.
Indeed, Steve Bruce will be very disappointed with how his team went about their business in the FA Cup, after crashing out in the third-round thanks to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Peterborough United.
However, with them currently sitting comfortably inside the play-off places. They’ll be looking to build on their current position, with only five points separating them from an automatic promotion place.
Of course, Villa have youngster Jack Grealish to thank for some fine performances in the league recently, after the midfielder has displayed moments of brilliance since returning from his horror injury.
But, with him yet to find the back of the net so far this season, the midfielder will be keen to add a goal to the 4 assist he’s provided so far.
Nevertheless, Aston Villa’s Twitter account (@AVFCOfficial) took to posting thoughts from Jack Grealish, as he talks about his current mind-set.

Following the club’s update, fans were quick to get behind Grealish as they look to promote positivity within the camp.
So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly what supporters made of their starlet’s thoughts…
You are 100% looking stronger ????????⚽️

He should have this league on toast. He’s obviously doing it in training so he really needs to look at his influences on and off the pitch. I’ll be so glad when certain players contract are up this season.
