    Barkley

    Rumoured.

    Good thing?

    didn't he play for us at one time? the name tickles.

    Played for us under Warnock so sure he has very fond memories of the stiff neck he suffered whilst tracking the flight of the ball at 3,000 ft above the midfield

    He would be a good short-term addition for us but I'd be surprised if Chelski let him go.

    Short term fix but would be decent for us.

    Remember watching his fleeting appearances for us under Warnock, [I was a steward at that time] mainly used as a sub [On loan from Premiership Everton at the time] 2014/15 I recall, Couldn't get a starting position as at the time Warnock had such mercurial talents as Lee Peltier, Jason Peierce, Chris Dawson, Luke Varney, Stephen Warnock to choose from... not to mention that star.. El Hadji Diouf!! [Spitty man]....couldn't get back to Everton quick enough - doubt he would want to come to warm our bench again TBH and also doubt he will have particularly good memories of his time here all those years ago

    ps - I do think he would be a good loanee

    Absolutely not, the entire reason he hasn't made that step up is because is incapable of tracking and has no game awareness. He is the opposite of a Bielsa player, we could sign him but it would take him 6 months to get up to speed and even then I'm not convinced he could be arsed.

    You mean he doesn't spend 75% of his time on the physio's table?

    So there's 20 mins to go and you need to make a change so you look to our bench and you see Roberts and Barkley.........

    I remember Waznock getting sh1te loads of abuse for not playing him ahead of all those world class players you mentioned.
