I think he has every right, and has the advantage of having done what most assume Barkley will do

he's seen things from the other side, and knows that now Everton are a club that is capable of challenging, and that Barkley has the ability to be a part of that

You could say that, but I feel the circumstances are much different between then and now.
Rooney wanted to leave a club us, considered relegation fodder, for what was then and now probably the apex team in the league. We were financially on our knees and going nowhere fast. I hated Rooney for going, but grudgingly could see why.

Picture today we are the polar opposite, financially secure in a cash rich premier league with a billionaire owner. Excellent manager, seventh in the league and strengthening the team. Brand new ground on the docks to come, we are on the up.

Reasons to leave he wants champions league football and he wants it now, obviously doesn't believe he can get it with Everton. He has been with his boyhood team since his career began, we have stuck with him through a horrendous injury when he was very young. Now it looks like he wants out, or if he can't go now will see his contract out and leave for nothing.

That for me is a chronic lack of loyalty to the club he supposedly supports and to the majority of fans who supported him through thick and thin. If this goes through then that will be a far greater act of betrayal than Rooney ever commited, in my eyes. If he is worried about his place maybe because the manager does not fancy him, then it is up to him to fight for his place and win the manager over. Alas it looks like he has not the heart for the fight, maybe then he is better off gone.

yeah but Ross is well on his way to being a millionaire while playing at Everton - like most footballers of his ability are.

Wayne is pretty much saying that the Everton he left were a million miles away from winning a trophy - something all footballers want - but the Everton he has returned to, and that Barkley can continue to be a part of, is much, much closer.

I am disappoint nobody has photoshopped the movie poster with Wayne, Ross, and Koeman yet...

I understand what your'e saying but to me Koeman has fucked up and he's too much of a
stubborn cunt to put it right so he gets the local to give it a go, do it yourself Ronnie lad

there's an element of that, yeah, and I'm not going to fight Koeman's corner for him on anything, let alone this

it should have been sorted behind closed doors and long before now

It looks to me like the 'Boyhood club' sentiment, is on its way out. If there's enough money, or individual ambition to be had; they're gone.

We don't know that, do we. It could be a lot of things. Loyalty to clubs is becoming rarer. Maybe it is down to Koeman. I'm just really disappointed in Barkley. This is a rare chance for a local kid to be a part of something big. It seems for whatever reason, he's not interested.
