A better manager would've used the pie and stick method.
Is that one of Dean Smiths traps?

Bringing a player on because he used to play for Everton and we were playing Liverpool? I really hope that wasn't the reason.
on the basis he wasn’t good enough to come on against Fulham, it’s hard to come up with an alternative.

Not sure if this clip has been posted before,  but shocking how he just strolls around

Got in a couple of hours ago after 12 hours back at work, will be up at 7 to go again. I'm knackered and it pisses me off seeing that. Wanker.  >:(

I think if His attitude is really poor, we wouldn’t play him at all,it just looks like his confidence is shot for whatever reason, and because of his cost we and he have to try and restore it. so he doesn’t start but gets some game time.

That clip is really odd - I haven't seen anything like that before.

I wonder if he is "ok".

It was a clip from twitter and it looks like it's been blocked now. I'm not surprised because it shows Barkley up in an extremely bad way. The camera focused on him for about 20 seconds and showed Liverpool just passing the ball around him while he ambles in the general direction of the ball while putting in no more than 10% effort. Embarrassing.

He was the same coming on against Newcastle, and another game recently.
I commented on here that he looked injured, like it was painful to try and sprint but that can’t be the case if he’s in the squad each week.

Confidence doesn't affect work rate. You don't need to be confident to run.

I can’t see the clip on Twitter as it’s been taken down.
On the Liverpool match thread I said ‘Barkley looks like he’s running through treacle’ not long after he came on.

I’m guessing the clip shows something like that?

There was another clip like that after the Leeds home game. His attitude stinks.

If you look at the Liverpool winning goal, Barkley is just trudging around within reach of TAA, and with a bit of effort could have closed him down and we get a point. He's a disgrace, not sure why we haven't sent him back already to be honest.

Agreed, this lack of application has been very evident from early days, Southampton was another shocker from him. Think he announced on his arrival that he was comfortable playing at 8 or 10. There aren't many 8s that get away with his risible lack of effort without the ball. Any time Smith played him there we had a big problem as a result.

Would be better off sending him packing but with Grealish's injury problem and now Trez I guess there is no chance of that.
