I donít think signings is a useful yardstick either.

Do we really want him vetoing players who the DoF / manager have identified?

Surely thatís exactly the sort of thing that people (rightly) normally moan about.

Then assuming this started when we sold Stones, and Barkley had 2 years left on his deal, and communications have dried up you start hawking Barkley around with 18 months left on his deal and flush them out.

But surely Barkley isnít with some two man band agency and thereíll be people higher up the food chain than the Pimpernel, like a CEO or company chairman.

Stones went when he (Barkley) had 12 months left.

Also likely that the main agent has people underneath doing menial stuff. Eg Raiola is involved in negotiations but wonít be sorting out regular supply of alpine mineral water etc.

Yeah Iíd say at home particularly he was very consistent with his play around the box, linking attacks, little through balls etc. in the second half of the season.
