  1. Ross Barkley

    ...which absolutely nobody has done....

    As the OP, I wasnt really trying to be proved right or prove anyone wrong. My personal view is that his CFC career effectively started in pre-season and that he should get a few months or even a full season before anyone really writes him off as "appalling". He might end up being just that, or good but not good enough, or even good. 8 bit-part games into a new system in a new club isn't really much to base things on. Thats all. At least he is genuinely working hard.

    Just an idle observation that the Barkley bashers have all gone a bit quiet this week...

    Credit to Barkley for today, Nice to see him get results for the effort he has been putting in. He’s clearly not quite as “appalling” as some would have you believe.

    Correct. Also, when we have the ball, he has an uncanny knack of quite often positioning himself in a place where no pass could ever find him. When he does get it, he is often efficient and useful. Also, Barkley is not the abject disaster some would have you believe. Granted, he is limited, but he is also energetic and is always able to get himself involved. The reason he lost the ball a few times last night is because he was actually trying to be proactive. I think he still is able to improve into a good player for us.

    He's not appalling. He might not be at the standard we would wish, but he is not appalling.
  8. No you haven't used the word "fail", but you have usd the "yes man" put-down repeatedly and its clear that you dont want him here. They all get fired after a maximum of 3 seasons anyway, so what does it matter? Personally, I think that working with the board just makes him a pragmatist rather than a "yes-man".
  9. Still no word on why you are SO desperate for him to fail? Attempting to work with the board is a very weird stick to beat a manager with, especially as being at loggerheads with them has worked out so well for previous incumbents...

    Have been thinking exactly the same thing...

    Interesting to know why you would have such a massive downer on Sarri at this point? Seems a little bit like you are desperate for him to fail? To attack him for trying to work with the board is an odd stance to take; we’ve had enough examples of managers at loggerheads with them and it clearly doesn’t benefit the team or the club. Better to create change from within, rather than be on the outside looking in and affecting absolutely nothing?

    Difficult to imagine Morata ever scoring another goal...

    I think we all are.
