Before anything else, the answer to the question you are all wondering about is, no. Jack Grealish did not sing God Save the Queen before the FA Cup final.
Clutching straws update: no applause from Grealish at the end of the anthem. No singing either.

Grealish had a disappointing game against Arsenal but so did pretty much every other Aston Villa player. There was a number of themes which frequented the reaction to his performance.
The main one was that he can now be considered more Irish than English.
Jack Grealish became a little more Irish today.

I guess Jack Grealish is Irish again.

Grealish looks a lot more Irish today than he did in the semi.

Jack Grealish playing his way into the Ireland squad with this performance so far.

Grealish playing just badly enough here. There's still a chance ??

Just a selection of those disappointed with player. Many were much less diplomatic.

@VillaEire Grealish was anonymous, Benteke had no service, Okore and Vlaar static. Massive summer for Sherwood.

Biggest criticism of the day goes to Jack Grealish, sloppy in possession and gave the ball away far too many times but he'll learn from it
— Tony Ellis (@yorkybrum73) May 30, 2015
Grealish finding it much, much tougher today than v. Liverpool. Ineffective and careless in possession.

Plenty came to his defence though. He is just 19 after all.
Amazing that sum fans are slagging Benteke & Grealish..the same players that ultimately kept us in the Premier League this season #Fickle

Knives predictably out for Grealish on the BBC already. Day to forget? FA Cup Final at 19? Hardly.

DannyMurphy tearing into 19 year old Jack Grealish saying he had a bad game.Entire villa side have been shit.Go easy on the kid!#FACupFinal

BBC pundits all picking out Grealish but none of this Villa team have been good. The kids 19, made 10 first team appearances!!! Sort it out!

Apart from his performance, and him being Irish again, most were concerned with his sock and shinguard combo.
Grealish's shin pad and sock height makes me squirm
— Andy (@AJ3Fifa) May 30, 2015
Can somebody pull jack grealish's socks up please
— Adam Forster (@AdamForster5) May 30, 2015
I hope Grealish gets kicked on his shin, he deserves it for wearing his socks and shin pads so pathetically
— Lydia (@LydiaFRS) May 30, 2015
Jack Grealish; too cool to wear shin pads. pic.twitter.com/xKEUzIhTfB

And that he looks like a character from a period drama.
At least now Jack Grealish can concentrate on his day job in the Peaky Blinders #AFCvAVFC

Jack Grealish looks like the cocky kid in a period gangster film who runs errands for the boss and is the only one allowed to cheek him.
