    Physical I agree completely that Barkley is very much a poch player.
    To me mentally he comes up really short, doesn't seem to have that competitive edge at all and for a "creative midfielder" he has the worse vision and understanding of the game one could possibly have.

    I don't agree I'm afraid. I think he sees things but is not yet able to pull them off. I think with good coaching he can be more consistent and turn into a top quality player.

    Is it a risk? Of course but we're not in a position to sign the finished article and I think Poch could have as much of an impact on Barkley as he has our full backs

    Two vastly overpriced average prem players, with very questionable mentalities. Versus two of the brightest attacking prospects in Europe, yeah I know which two I'd rather take a chance on.

    Yet has just assisted a goal with a beautifully weighted pass.

    He's thick as shite, mate. Comes up with something useful every now and then.

    And could hardly have fucked that up, it was a simple short diagonal.

    I'd agree with u but I don't even really see him try play incisively for the most part. Plus when things aren't going his way and or the team is struggling he seems to hide and tends to play it safe and sideways.

    I'm not saying they were - but the poster I was replying to said sell Son to buy Barkley.

    See I disagree with this, I've not seen him hide, he always seem to play the Hollywood ball even when he's playing shit. I could be wrong on all this but I would be over the moon if we took a punt on him and got him for a reasonable price. I don't think we'll be able to sign anyone who is objectively better or had more potential than him for the money he'd cost.

    Had a great game against City here

    Janssen has come from nowhere, two years ago he was playing in the Dutch second division. These two have been playing at a top level for years and have always been highly rated. Both of them would be a lot more like eriksen then Janssen.

    Guess u didn't see the Liverpool game, he does well when his team is at it, but when there struggling and they need someone to try and lift them he goes missing. and tbf if we could pay a reasonable price I wouldn't mind Barkley but that's never going to be the case.

    Fair enough. I don't see us getting him anyway

    I don't really see where Barkley fits into our lineup.

    Agree. If we are going to buy him it will be for a high transfer fee.

    Even the best players do that though. See dembele for evidence

    I don't think Barkley is for us at the prices mentioned. This summer is going to be key in who we bring in and I don't think spunking £20/30 million on him would be worthwhile.

    No I did not say that, read the post. I said Son could be unhappy with his lack of starts and that Barkley could be who we replace him with, not that I prefer Barkley to Son.

    Ok I will rephrase, if Son is unhappy and wants to leave as he did at the start of the season due to lack of games could it be that we are planning to replace him with Barkley?

    Not that I want this but I could see this happening.
