That's the figure that various news reports reported although it was officially undisclosed.

275 grand a week fee? I don't think so.

He had only been on the pitch 5 mins. Big time Charlie. Get shot

Doesn't look remotely fit there. If he isn't fit he shouldn't be anyehere near the team. If he is fit he clearly isn't trying. I was thrilled when they brought him in and my excitement seemed justified but not any more. He's now become a massive disappointment.

He looks like a pub player playing after an all nighter in that clip. Actually it reminds me of myself around 1993.

My only guess as to why he came on ahead of KD was the “Evertonian” thing and that he’d bust a gut to beat Liverpool. Clearly that wasn’t ever going to be a factor.

You’ve only got to look at his attitude getting him on the pitch in the first place. He doesn’t like being a substitute.

Confidence is one thing, granted, attitude is another. It’s the latter for me and I hope he doesn’t waste a squad place for us again.

....and what a shame, because for a few games, we looked the dogs with him, Jack, Ollie and the rest all firing.

That lack of effort annoyed me on Saturday (in real time). I was watching him do nothing, as I was calling out to the screen. Just something, anything from him and that ball wouldn't have gone forwards. Then to see him on the "D" later in the move (again doing nothing), whilst the defender was teeing himself up for the shot was just utter sh-t. That is why Saturday I said barkley can just f-ck off!

it's both, he got dropped because of poor form/lack of confidence and instead of using it as motivation he's decided he can't be arsed.

I’d say that’s nail on the head Paul.

Bringing a player on because he used to play for Everton and we were playing Liverpool? I really hope that wasn't the reason.

Is that clip just after him fluffing the shot and just before Liverpool scoring?
