Is it wrong that my first thought on seeing the article was your can have a tattoo at 16?í

Letís hope he develops naturally through the academy & in 18 months / 2 years he is ready

If your surname is Barry and you're a footballer you can do whatever the fuck you want regardless of what age you are. Still a schoolboy? No problem, get tattooed. Pushing 40? All gravy, steal a taxi while drunk and everyone will forgive you pretty much straight away!

According to someone in the know heís not short of confidence bordering on arrogant.  Sort of what you need to succeed at this level.

I don't think he settled at all. Which isn't hard to understand, him being a child from the Midlands thrust into the 2nd* biggest club in world football.

*After us of course.

Yeah its quite a change to move at that age.  How long was he there?   Anyway he is back - looking forward to his PL debut.

I agree. Can't wait. Think he will be a big, big player for us and England one day.

*Sorry missed the question. He was there just 6 months.

I'd heard that they'd had problems registering him to compete in official youth academy league level games.  Maybe a contributing factor in wanting to come back, only getting the occasional training ground run out and struggling to settle.

A move to a big club like Barca, combined with living overseas, presumably away from family, is big move for a 16  year old kid, irrespective of how confident he is - hope he has a long and successful career with the Villa

Cynic in me suggests our new Academy Coach persuaded him to say he was homesick so we could pick him up for peanuts.
