I'm still amazed that Barkley wants to g to Spurs.It's widely accepted that he doesn't like Koeman criticising the weaker aspects of his game like tracking back and losing the ball to often.Pochetinno is a manager who will be even less forgiving on that than Koeman on those areas.
If anyone likes to speculate based on body language, when Koeman was asked about Ross's injury (on two separate occasions) he immediately moved his hand to his chin and extended his finger across his lips before answering.
...........yeh but ok it's better than the snake oil salesman ! I love Koeman's own brand of English .
I'd like to see him line up next to Schneiderlein or Gana in a more defensive set up than the number 10 with license to bring the ball through the middle of the park to open up play. Would require him working on his defensive game to get good in the role but that's where I see him adding the most value in our current squad. Not that it'll happen, mind.
Apart from the fact that a fee was agreed between the clubs and he talked (directly or via his agent) to Chelsea everything else is speculation.If he wanted Spurs that much his agent would be sorting that - not going this far down the road to Chelsea.We'll get dribs and drabs of information over the coming weeks so might understand it more then. In the meantime all we can say is that it all seems a little bizarre. 'What if' there was a reason like stress and being unable to make a sound decision? Will we be as tolerant and understanding as we are with Lennon or will we crucify him because his 'episode of mental ill-health' was centred on Everton in the full glare of the media?
And when you put it like that BD, it makes me think the party we've really been fucked over by here is Spurs, probably leading Ross on and ending in this situation where they'll get him for less in a few months. And for that we only have ourselves to blame, through letting ourselves be put in that position, for example, through awful handling of the situation by Koeman making it clear he had no future at the club, which always left us in a terrible spot negotiation-wise.
