I don't know what you want from me. It's just an impression I (and plenty of others) have of him. He doesn't look as quick or as lithe in his movements to me, and when I look at him stood next to other players, I do think he looks a bit too bulky for a footballer's ideal body type.

It's really very, very simple.

You are calling him bulky. I am asking you which part of him looks bulky to you because I see absolutely no potentially restrictive muscle mass on his body. He is tall, he is lean, he is (IMO) no way bulky.

At 6"2 and a natural athlete,  he is always going to look bigger than a scrawny little pussy like Coutinho or someone of that ilk.

He's just got a wide, rectangular frame like a ... kitchen dresser.

At least he hasn't got a duck's arse, like some modern footballers. :)

I've thought the same about Barkley (too muscular & unfit) and its not just me, I've heard several people say the same...

He used to be able to sprint, drive past people, nearly run the length of the pitch... cant remember much of that for ages.

And his shorts must be the biggest since Unsworth's ...  nod

Well the photographic evidence is there that he isn't muscle-bound in the slightest because he isn't carrying much muscle at all.

Another myth that someone starts it it gets accepted as fact like Frank Lampard being fat.

If you can't beat them, join them.

Is Ross Barkley carrying an excess amount of muscle that is hindering his performance?

I believe so, yes.

But no one is qualified to have an expert opinion on it.

Looks like he's carrying a bit too much imo, same with Lukaku. The conditioning of the players was a massive problem under Martinez.

Fair enough then, I'm clearly in the minority here (well, totally alone!). Maybe I'm biased because I train for size and really can't see it on him myself lolol

Lean - Yes
Big - Not in the slightest

Most footballers have that exact physique as they are Sub-10% body fat making any amount of muscle appear greatly exaggerated. Google Phil Neville Shirt off and you'll see.

EDIT: That cunt next to him is in decent nick for his age lolol

His dad is supposed to be proper massive so it's probably genetic.

He does look lethargic and labourerd a lot of the time, but that could be other factors as well. He's got asthma, hasn't he?

That fella next to him is Gary linekers brother haha
