I've just read this article in The Guardian regarding Ross Barkley, formerly of this parish:

Ross Barkley flatters to deceive again and slips in England pecking order

This may well ignite a few old arguments but, for me, this article could have been written by a ToffeeWeb contributor a couple of seasons ago!

It seems that, even now he has actually had some coaching 'at a top club', *ahem* – he is still in that “potential” bracket

No doubt he will have a decent game in the next few weeks and will be named England's or Chelsea’s saviour... that is until his next match.

Slipping in the England pecking order is hardly a disaster, can't imagine Barkley will lose any sleep over it. Anyway, he doesn't play for Everton now.

He has great skill, is very fast and big and strong. The perfect ingredients for a top midfielder in the same mould as Zidane, Lampard or, dare I say the DJ basher. But unfortunately he more often than not stinks the place out. Very very overated. Just watch him score a blinder this week then that will give him another 6 caps.

When he was allegedly a prodigy in the making he was described by an Everton ex-player as "not having a footballing brain". Having watched him that opinion is the truth, unfortunately. Whatever the cause, Ross Barkley is "lacking" from the neck up.

He's still a shit though, for what he did to us in engineering his transfer to the now routinely disappointed (like we were) Chelski.

He's pissed on his chips by demanding a penalty and missing. Shame really, great potential but a dickhead.
