Just watching England and Loftus-Cheek has a bit of the Ross Barkleys about him.

Strong, balanced, both footed, good technique, likely to get dropped in town for shaggin another lad's bird.. etc etc

All the key attributes.

Yeah i agree. Quite like him.

Barkley light years above him, like.

I wouldn't say so... Barkley is easily the better dribbler yeah, but Loftus-Cheek looks like he has that awareness that Ross seems to lack.

People talk as if Barkley has never made an assist in his life.

No I rate Barkley. Just wouldn't say he was "light years" ahead.

This situation is so strange.

I've never known a hamstring injury to last this long, so obviously there's some shenanigans going on.

But at the same time I can't fathom how someone can grow up a massive evertonian and fall out of love with Everton, especially when we are his exact level at the moment and pay massive wages.

Oh well... not like it's a surprise is it. And it's not like we're gonna suddenly get worse after he's gone, we've played half a season without him.

It's true that we'd be a better side with him fit and in it, but he doesn't want to be here.
