Can anyone tell what was so bad about this interview?  I watched it and I don't understand why so many of you are up in arms about it.

it's all a bit....West Ham....isn't it?

let their porno king Tory owners do the cringe stuff with Shouty McYellowTie (credit @phillyt) but it's a bit beneath Everton

also there are strong sources saying Ross didn't have his medical at all, which makes it all look a bit stupid

then he says we "might" need a new striker, but that Sandro just needs time - forgetting the staying injury-free bit too

AND then says he expects us to finish top six....

Still have to wonder what makes an Evertonian want to leave Everton so badly

I don't agree with Moshiri doing these interviews but I'm guessing he was acting and commenting on the information he had at the time, as far as he was aware everything was agreed and he was in London for a medical and changed his mind. The 'mid medical walkout' sensationalises the story but in reality whether he walked out before, during or after is fairly irrelevant, Barkley has still made a cunt of both us and Chelsea.

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?

If he was hedging his bets back then we should have hedged ours accordingly and informed him in 2016 he wouldn't be allowed to enter the final two years of his contract here, extend or be sold, new manager or not.

same as what Southampton did with Koeman when he wouldn't sign a new deal with a year to go then?

reckon Everton will do the same?

Southampton seem like a very well run club, emotionless in discussions but very professional. I always think we err too much on the emotion side and it leaves us wide open. Some might say this comes from Kenwright, I just think we need to be run more professionally.

I agree

Nobody should go into the last year of their contract at any football club unless they are retiring.

Wonder whose choice it was to agree to letting Barkley undergo surgery whilst still an Everton player too though? In the middle of a transfer window?  After he's said he wants to leave?  Whoever signed off on that one needs a word in their ear as well!

Koeman won't sign a new deal here.  It's been ten years since he won a trophy and if he wins one with us this season it'll be massively lucky given our lack of a striker, so he'll leave on a high.  If he doesn't, then he'll leave to try somewhere else.

We need to make sure he goes somewhere while we get compo for him leaving so we can attract our next manager, whoever that might be

Could've handled it a lot better but it does seem to be forgotten that we did offer him a new deal and he refused.

in May

It was reported that he was to be offered a new deal in September last year.

yeah but it was only confirmed - by Koeman - that Ross was rejecting it in May when he told Koeman he was "ready for a new challenge"

reckon he was just bored of the 500 piece jigsaws in the first team canteen meself though

How do we all know what this contract was back in September by the way?  Who leaked it?

And?

something changed between April 2016 and September 2016 at Everton

can't quite remember what it was, but I do recall thinking it might have some impact on any contract offers and stuff

We got rid of Tim Howard. Instantly a more attractive proposition to sign for us.

close...

something about brown shoes?

Koeman has said many times that he's not involved in contract negotiations

good job really or he'd have looked a right bellend out on the lash in Portugal on deadline day wouldn't he?
