Tbf si did say last week that royle doesn't rate Barkley and if what was said is true that it was a royle and unsworth side then it was no surprise
Also, Dowell was a certainty to play
Besic hasn't looked anyway near fit enough since his return, probably rushed back so hopefully a break for him, a good pre season and we will see him again
Funes mori.... I think it was just to give the kids some experience
Noticed Unsy gave Barkley a rollicking for not chasing back once after he lost the ball.
Made a pleasant change.
Can't wait for a new manager to get him properly into shape.
