He won't play next week, though.

Mike, another contender might be Ademola Lookmans for Fulham earlier today.

Who knows where things are going this season.

Did you see Moyes going full on Klopp mode for a celebratory pitch invasion v Spurs? Never seen him look so lively.

James is an unbelievable footballer but it would have been interesting to see Barkley back here on loan for the season to see how he fared with Ancelotti.
Lookman is just Lookman isn't he, had talent but seemed to always play the game like it was a chore, not an enjoyable experience.

He's never going to be right for an absolute top side because they can afford talent without the flaws (and the flaws cost points too). But he's great to watch when he's on his game.

I would argue that, in a team with more resources, he would have been hooked long before he scored the goal but of course that's always the dilemma with those types of players.

Barkley will do well. Again, maybe not quite a top 6 player. When he's got space to charge forward, he's dangerous. But he doesn't quite have the vision of the best players. However, I'd love to have him in place of Gomes in our midfield.
Harry Kane is in imperious form. He's more a no10 now, and his passing is Jamesesque. England need to find a way to play both Kane (in a deeper role) and DCL as the no9.

I'd take Barkley over Gomes every day sad as it is to say.
I was never Barkley's biggest fan I always thought he lacked a football brain but in Martinez final season he was fantastic running forward with the ball and think he scored something like 12 from midfield, there's no denying though that Martinez got the best from him.
Gomes for me offers nothing at all, doesn't really create, doesn't shoot, never scores, he's a lovely fella but I think his time will soon be up under the new regime Ancelotti is building.

I was always a Barkley fan but as time passed I begrudgingly had to acknowledge that his range of abilities became narrowed, more by seeing that he didn't make it at Chelsea than his time here.
Watching him now at Villa however, I suspect he's found himself the ideal home in that midfield and I think we'll see some admirable stuff from him. Ironic that he may be an ideal weapon with us as we are now, and under Carlo, but probably not as an automatic every-game choice. We'll never know.
28 Posted 19/10/2020 at 13:30:53
I'd love us and Villa to go head to head all year and us win it with a couple of games to go. (Not sure I could sit through a last-day nail-biter...)

Or, for the speed readers: "Championship players".
30 Posted 19/10/2020 at 14:01:31
The fact that he's out on loan should tell you something.
