Overall, I think we are best suited to move on and look forward.
Barkley did cause us real harm, though. Fully understand the bad blood.
He was a midfielder who could carry the ball forwards, last season and this, we don't have that person.
we need players like him (or him!) who can keep the ball and get it away from our goal.
albeit he wasn't at his best, but still I don't know anyone else in our team atm, who can carry the ball up the pitch, (please don't say Richarlison) Gomes can but he plays deeper and doesn't burst forwards like Barkley did.
