he was doing what the club have history for, which is getting their version of events out first to make the player look bad
I reckon he was told Spurs would bid for him, so he went to London for a few days as he's injured, he's not doing anything else, and wanted to be available. Then Chelsea came in for him and his agent probably told him to go along and see what they had to say out of politeness - and as he's there anyway...
He was polite, said no thanks - for now - and left
Then "someone" leaks it to the media that he walked out mid-medical, and Farhad goes on TV and repeats that story - for whatever reason....maybe it was Everton who put out the "mid medical walkout" story?
This is the first we've heard from "Barkley's side" about anything to do with a transfer.
He's leaving the club he supports, something has gone horribly, horribly wrong for that to even cross your mind hasn't it?
Absolutely spot on there Simon. Especially the last bit.
For Ross Barkley to want to leave Everton. Specially given the money and ambition we have now. Something has gone really sour.
I think a lot goes back to when he was hung out to dry by England and instead of having his back Everton's manager kicked him whilst he was down. It's also been common knowledge since Christmas last year that koeman wanted Rooney and siggirdson. 2 players who play Ross's position.
A lot on here seem very quick to jump on Ross back that it must all be his fault.
And let's just say the manager did want him replaced and sold (which is his porogative) why should Ross then bend over to look out for the club before himself.
I have no doubt in the future it will come to light that Ross had been pushed rather than jumped.
