He gets some harsh criticism but even watching the Lincoln game today, he seems to lost that drive he used to have for some reason has certainly stagnated.
Wouldn’t mind seeing him go on loan to a decent championship club.
Yes I think we he was coming through there was talk that he could sit or do box to box.
Best form was as a hybrid 10 in 16/17 but I think that worked as Barkley was shouldering the edge of the box possession burden, so Davies’ energy was a good counter point.
Plus with the confidence/ adrenaline of just breaking through his forward passing was more successful.
Seemed like he was trying a bit too hard today (and vs Spurs) as he was trying to close down positions that were only going to result in an easy triangle around him.
