Was gonna start a thread about Pienaar but suppose it's as relevant here.
I'm starting to write him off as a player and had heard 1 or 2 things about him being a dick outside the club so was thinking his time was up. (Just to make a point though - dint necessarily believe he is a dick and they're just rumours).
Our 3rd goal today was barkley, Pienaar, eto'o, goal.
Something really impressed me about Pienaar though, a lot of us agree that barkley needs to mature in decision making a bit more, and Pienaar took time out of celebrating to congratulate ross on the pass and making the right call.
Was really nice to see and put into crystal clarity the fact that barkley is still a kid (which, to be fair, should be extended to lukaku when giving him down the banks at times)
