Think he said Ross would be England's greatest player.

I hope he stays but I'm not deluding myself that he's the answer to much. At least on the last few years form.

I personally have accepted Ross Barkley as our lord and saviour and urge you too also.

With his open chance creations he wakes us from our slumber, with his powerful running from deep he moves us closer to the promised land, and with his long distance strikes he punishes those who would trespass against us.
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.

Barkley was one of Martinez favourites

Aye, but that didn't necessarily help either. He went too far over the top.

Loved the way Unsi spoke about him in the presser.

I think he'll stay if Unsworth gets the job.

A 10 million signing on fee with Spurs will be tempting though.

Are we forgetting that Moshiri threw him under the bus in Aug/Sept?

Read the title of this thread and laughed to meself...

Just picturing in me head a knock on Ross's front door and he opens it to Rhino and Big Dunc standing there dressed as bouncers saying...

"Do you wanna pen?".........

Reading Unsworth comments about him being 3 to 4 weeks away I would be annoyed if he played him (if still in charge) if he hasnt committed by then. Personally I think hes gone and I dont want us to invest anymore time in him

An earnest apology can set things right.  It's something that grown men should do much more often.

How do you know that?
A few clues
1/ would not sign a new 100,000 a week contract
2/ went to Chelsea for a medical
3/ says he wanted to go to Spurs
and 4/ Most importantly has shown no sign since Koeman went that he feels any different
I am quite happy he is on his bike!

1-3 happened on Koeman's watch. Maybe it was a coincidence and he was just done.

However, let's face it from Day 1 pretty much he was Koeman's whipping boy and the one that was dropped and/or chewed out in the media. Koeman tried to get in Sigurdsson in pretty much every transfer window before this one so maybe he knew he was for the chop as soon as his replacement came in and started making plans.

Regarding 4, he's not said anything before or after in public so nothing has really changed there. Personally I don't mind that, I'd rather he dealt with the club directly than via Twitter.

If he wants to have a better chance of winning trophies, improve as a player and forge an England career he'll go to Spurs.

No brainer.
