Taxi for Moshiri is a bit harsh Ross?

I thought Moshiri was the one supposed to be driving Koeman in the taxi according to that image?

Personally think Barkley played an underappreciated role in helping to transition from defence to attack. The one thing he never did was hide, he was always available for the pass and generally helped retain possession. From a 'creating great chances' perspective, he unquestionably held on to the ball too long. What he did well though was keep it long enough that we could at least actually mount an attack (and relieve defensive pressure) - things we seem incapable of doing at times this season.

Definitely this. Can't believe people could look at how we're playing and think he wouldn't be an upgrade.

Wouldn't play him as a ten though. Let him collect the ball from Schneiderlin and turn meek possession into attack.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

No taxi for Koeman

It's gonna be Uber-ific

Must admit I was of the opinion that Sig and Rooney would come in and provide exactly what Barkley doesn't but it hasn't worked out like that. I think our summer recruitment has blocked his path back into the first team though when fit, especially if Koeman stays much longer. Which is a shame but for him to start Koeman would have to eat some massive humble pie and I don't think he's that type of guy.

Niasse is out there, and he alienated him as hard as any manager could.

Also, he's always been open about wanting Barkley back, and wanting him to sign a new deal. So I don't know how much of a humble pie he'd be eating. Or is this like the myth of him golfing everyday?

Fair point. Although he really doesn't have much alternative but to utilise Niasse at the minute, with only three strikers at the club and the other two being a kid and a guy well past his best.

Our business in the summer was centred around the fact Barkley was leaving so we bought four/five players for his position, so I'd be surprised if he saw much first team action if he got fit before January. I'd like him to but we'll see.

Sadly, first thing we'll do when the January window is open is sell Barkley. They were trying right until the last minute so I can't see that changing unless the money on offer has become peanuts now.

Only slim chance of keeping Barkley would be if Koeman went and we got in a manager like Tuchel who could sell him on staying around. Even so, it's unlikely as why would he not go to Spurs at this point? Or Chelsea for that matter.

Looking at a potential Leicester City struggle for a manager hire I hope we wait before firing Koeman

I think Barkley feared his career would go the way of Drinkwater’s if he went to Chelsea. Which is never getting a game unless they had an injury crisis. Which he’d be correct.

I can't see him getting much more game time at Spurs either. Hopefully before he goes we will get rid of Koeman and get him to sign a new deal.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Why would Barkley think he would be sought after by any of the top 6 clubs? Unless he really believed what Martinez told him. I hope he stays and plays for us. Even then he would have to be more comsistent than he used to be in order to claim a regular place in what I hope will be a stronger squad after next January..

Because they keep trying to buy him? 😂

Frustrating really to have so much young talent on the books and be failing to harness it. Imagine if Pochettino had the amount of potential we have in this squad, he'd have them at their peak physical fitness and motivated to bust a gut and impress.
It's no exaggeration to say we have the most talented group of youngsters in the league, if you add Barkley into that mix as well it's a pretty exciting bunch all in all. You just want to see it harnessed and produce but it's looking unlikely at present.

I'm amazed that the people in charge didn't see this coming. Pretty much everyone on this forum was convinced we'd sign an established quality winger and a striker. Not because they were in the know but because not even an idiot would think we could function without them. Instead we fucked about with Sigurdsson. It's beyond inept. We seem to have a habit of appointing managers who do the fucking ridiculous
We have a DoF that ‘governs’ transfers. Why would Koeman, who had the likes of Pelle and Mane play so well for him, not want players of the same ilk?
