Yep, says a lot about Dunc and a lot about Barkley. Leave it to you to decide which is praiseworthy.
Duncan Ferguson has played an entire career and has a decade of coaching behind him . It wouldn't say much for him if he wasn't more aware than a twenty one year old.
As much as I love having Duncan involved at Everton my memory of him as a player was frustration at the number of games he missed as a player through injury.
