Welcome to Barcelonaton FC
I'd put much more money on him ending up like Rodwell than I would him ending up like Rooney.
Despite early promise Barkley has turned out to be a bang average player whose age has now exceeded any early potential by more than a season already. If he wasn't one of our own we'd have turned on him a long time ago. He's done nothing to repay our belief by leaving. By comparison, Rooney was clearly a potential world beater when he was 16 and has gone on to win practically every honour there is at club level.
See ye Ross Lar. Badly advised for certain but it was his choice at the end of the day. So when people in the future talk about Ross using the Rooney and Rodwell comparison, they'll put Ross in the Rodwell bracket.
What? Hamstrings made of spaghetti?
When he was fit, he played for City.
The lads injuries ruined his talent not the move.
