Until he got injured it absolutely worked out.  He played a massive part in our outstanding form in the first half of the season.  However much he has declined, the part he played in giving the team confidence we could compete with the best was massive.  People were talking about us pushing for top 4 and we felt we could beat anybody.

I agree he's been shit since the injury, but I think it's a push to say it wasn't worthwhile.

Heís a total waste of a football career.

I disagree.  Considering how bad a footballer he is I'd say he has done remarkably well to get as far as he has and harvest for as long as he has the rewards that come with being a premier league footballer.

I am sure you can figure it out - neither of them are averse to attracting the attention of the press and social media -leading to images of them "worse for wear" in the public domain ....

The fact that, until his injury, Jack was having his best season ever suggests you're making a problem from nothing.
fine .......you believe what you want ...all will be fine when he is "fit"

Are you suggesting that Jack has only missed games because Barkley is part of the squad? It looks that way but I just want to check because it seems far too batshit crazy for anyone to actually think.

Three by my reckoning. Liverpool, Leicester and Arsenal. Three and a half if you want to include the Southampton game where he scored but did bugger all else.

I have absolutely no idea what that means VATM, donít quite know whether it means Jack canít stand Barkley, Jack and Barkley went on the pop all the time and needed to be kept apart at all costs or something entirely different altogether! 🤔😅

A poor player with (it turns out) no footballing brain and no awareness of what's happening around him at all. How he's managed to achieve international recognition is beyond me! The weaknesses I saw in his cameo appearance yesterday were also there in his debut appearance vs red scouse and in subsequent games up to his injury. The only difference 1st time round against pool was that the Villa midfield tore them to shreds, with barkley benefitting from that and getting a goal when he should have had 2 or 3 more at the time. He's been a costly mistake. He needs to move on (back to chelski) as do we without him.

Even my missus, who knows absolutely nothing about football and hasnít a clue who Ross Barkley is, noticed his lethargic body language when getting stripped on the sidelines
ďHe looks like he doesnít want to come onĒ.
Shame Smith doesnít see it.

Everything has to be perfect for Barkley to perform including how the ball is played to him.   He has a certain amount of luck running on his side when he is on form.  He's obviously better player than Drinkwater, pity he's not willing to work and give even 80%

I wouldn't have him on the bench, his miserable face offends me and I'd rather put a kid or someone else on there to start getting a feel of it.
