His form is fine. He's not a striker so just enjoy what else he brings to the table. If you can.

It wouldn't surprise me if Jack scores more when crowds return. He loves the big occasions.

Five goals in 15 games is fine. It could be better but it's hardly worth bringing up over and over again.
Its important to talk of recent form.
And of recent form is fine to point out the observations.
Its just the same as saying Liverpool haven't scored in the last 3 matches.
And Leeds haven't scored in their last 3 matches.
Its being relevant to the current situation talking and discussing recent form
This instance its goal scoring exploits of English players at number 10,  midfield attackers and in relation and contrast to Grealish  zero goals in 6 matches.



How many chances has he created?

Fantasy football & all this nonsense about ‘X’ & ‘G’ numbers is creating a nerd industry - just watch it & enjoy it....particularly if you have a generational player to watch?

I'm happy with his form regardless of his lack of goals recently and I would guess most people are.

How many times im talking about goal scoring form and being happy with no goals in 6 matches or not

Ok well he's starting v Man City on Wednesday because of overall form and that he's the best but in terms of goals it not very clear if you're disappointed or not that in 6 matches no goal.

And that is the simple line of it for anyone

Again, I'm happy with his form regardless of his recent lack of goals. I'm not disapointed at all that he hasn't scored in his last 6. As long as he keeps playing like he is, that's fine by me.

But goals aside he's been the best player on the pitch in most of those recent matches.

Playing at 10 too so not getting into as many goal scoring positions as before. Creating plenty though

Indeed. If Barkley is fit now (surely) then he can go back out wide.

Each to their own as the  transfers , selections and development all modelled and supported by data so its good to be abreast of such info for me

I'll be looking at Olli Watkins and moving to that thread so can avoid as I will be talking about and what expecting for goals in coming days you have been warned

But take your point! I just find football has so much info and that can be used to have an understanding of the systems and players.
Hopefully one day somebody discovers the formula for guaranteed wins :-)
For me stats only ever tell half the story ie Watkins hasn’t scored too many recently yet the stat doesn’t reflect the fact that the pressure he puts on opposition centre backs means we get opportunity to win ball in midfield more...likewise with Jack he hasn’t scored in 6 games but that doesn’t take into account assists, dribbles that advance us up the field or the fact that teams put 2/3 marking him at all times giving space for others ie Traore & El Ghazi recently.

I think Barkley is related to Jenas, only with more talent.

Not sure going to Chelsea was the right career move (def was for bank account lol) - injury prone players need to play 15-20 games on the spin at some point.

Hopefully he only misses the Chelsea game for rest of the season

I must admit watching Jack recently I thought he had been controlling games, creating space for teamates and basically making us tick whilst we went through a purple patch of form, and at the same time continuing to demonstrate that he is almost certainly one of the best players in the league.

I appreciate Footy pointing out to me that during this time he has infact been shit and to top it off almost certainly at fault for the teams Covid outbreak.  We can only dream of having a player like Mason Mount or James Maddison.

This is why I enjoy forums like this, every day is a school day and it's great to learn from people with this level of superior knowledge.
