Just imagine that he's running his contract down knowing he will never play again and doesn't want to take the pay from Everton
It's the roll I way

That scar looked pretty heavy duty. It's all been kept pretty quiet if there's anything in what you're saying though. I feel like a right twat for getting arsey about it. I feel like I've got a guilt complex coming on.  :blush:

The whole debacle makes so little sense for Ross. At his boyhood club, earning mega money. An ambitious club. And Wayne Rooney playing in the position you want to play in showing you how it is done and teaching you to play deep, run the show and score goals.

Why would he want to leave? I just can't fathom it.

He must believe he has the talent to improve to the extent he could compete maybe in a year or so with the typical squad players in the top 6 clubs.  Which of them would be bothered taking the risk is a moot point. Good luck to him. Jeffers went with a similar ambition and after a short spell as "Wenger's fox in the box" vanished into oblivion. It does not mean Barkley shouldn't take the risk.  Whichever way he chooses to go he will be a millionaire regardless.

He'll get offered twice as much at chelsea on a free. Makes financial sense for him and his agent.
Hold off signing for Chelsea, save them £25m - £30m, in return they'll pay him a decent signing on fee and a fat contract. All the while fleecing us, but he's a blue, and misunderstood, so it's fine apparently.

Can’t get my head around it personally. Would rather earn half the doh and get my bollocks kicked every night before bed than play for any other club.

Something must change when you are on the other side, just ask Wayne.
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.

One angle no one is taking is the impact of this injury.

He's been out for six months with a very serious hamstring tear.

That on top of the leg break he had at the start of his career and I don't think there's much left in him.

Can see it all going a bit Jack Wilshere for him.

Id be very reluctant to give him a new deal. Just cash in, let him run it down. It's not real loss for us. Rooney is doing better than Ross ever did for us.

Rooneys numbers are great but we really are crying out for a proper playmaker. Not sure that's barkley either but I guess we could argue barkley still has a chance of becoming that player

Looking at the scar off that injury and with the history of hamstring injuries, ( they always seem to come back), does not look promising at all for Ross. Looks like he could have problems passing a medical with the size of that scar, insurance etc.
