How would he fit into the team with Sig? Both No. 10s, and they seem to share a lot of the same characteristics -- good finishers, solid playmakers, and free kick specialists. I don't want to see Sig shunted out to the left wing again.

Heís best on the left.

Thatís where he played his best stuff for Swansea. Anytime he was number 10 for us his passing let him down.

I guess we will have to disagree on this one -- i much prefer him as a No. 10. Also, I would prefer to have pace on both wings -- e.g., Lookman on the left and Walcott on the right -- and that is not happening if Sig is playing wide left.

I'm thinking about the lay-offs and little touches. He's top quality on the ball. The question is, will he be able to do it in the prem?  :)

Looks a little scrawny, without the low center of gravity that other diminutive players -- like Silva -- have.

Did he?

He got some solid reviews and scored 4 goals in 13 games, which is a comparable strike rate. Ross was also two years younger and playing for a club on loan.

He did quite well at Wednesday. He didnít look like a future star though. Not sure about Maddison havenít seen enough of him but there was question marks against Barkley everywhere heís been and under every manager

I distinctly remember the Wednesday manager saying Barkley would be a future star. But i don't really mean to argue with you here -- I agree that Maddison seems to have a lot of upside, assuming his wiry frame is not an issue in the prem.

Is it just me or is he displaying in the vid what we all wanted Barkley to show a bit more of. Technique, composure and quick feet to beat a man, explosive pace to get away from them, direct running into the danger areas causing panic and mistakes from opposition, and a very varied range of passing and finishing throughout.

This is also just a really fun video to watch. Really entertaining player. Norwich supporters must love him.
