Dave, you've had contact tougher than that "penalty" on the way to the bar and not gone down. ðŸ¤£

Maybe I'm nuts and can't see with my blue tinted glasses on, but it's still my belief, I just hope Ancelotti and his players can prove it!

Very direct bursts forward, busy player all over the pitch.
Anyone seen him play??

I remember the game well, it's was just four days after we ended the Old Trafford hoodoo, times were really positive under Martinez and probably the only time in recent years when I've felt like I was watching a completely new style Everton that feared no reputation of others.
There was never any doubts over Barkley in terms of talent, he always had immense talent but it was decision making that held him up, fair play he looks likes exactly the type of midfield player we are crying out for right now which is maddening.

I'm not sure what the situation is regarding whether Barkley may leave full time and even whether he would go permanently to Villa or he's just using it as a chance to get back in the Chelsea side.
If Barkley carries on having a good season at Villa I'd imagine his fee will go up next year anyway.
I'm not going to lie, I'd like him back, we have a world class player in James but he's not the type that will carry the ball and run with it, we don't possess that kind of player at the club.
Sometimes even we as fans get too obsessed with these midfield ball-winners instead of actual creative attacking players.

In contrast we seem to pass it around at the back for ages before eventually losing possession through sloppy passing.

At Chelsea he was constrained, asked to be disciplined and played safe and looked lost.
At Villa he's been released, and looks happier but he'd be a disaster for us, he has zero game without the ball.

Why not send an email to MK or LL? I suspect Lyndon's attempt to upgrade the site has inadvertently caused an issue with what you're trying to do.

We all know Barkley is very good technically. It is upstairs where he has a problem.
