I thought it was now mandatory to wear them

If so, how was Grealish allowed to play without them ?

My lad noticed as well. He apparently wears kids shinny for some reason.

It's delicate in the PL these days so he can get away with it.

He wears kid's shinnys as they don't 'inhibit his first touch and close control when dribbling' apparently. - view external link (http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/jack-grealish-what-you-aston-7745529)

Looks a decent prospect with or without shin pads...good job Brian O'Neill isn't around!

Fashion statement in my opinion, a bit like Song at West Ham with his shorts pulled up. Could you see Dyche allowing one of our players to wear them like that.

All Premier League teams train wearing shin pads now for insurance reasons.

You will see players wearing shin pads even in fitness sessions outdoor which seems mad to me.
