Does anybody think that Ross Barkley is currently overrated? Watch

    Agreed. People were calling for him to be played in the WC but when he came on all he tried were big solo runs before inevitably getting tackled. Very overrated.

    He's good, but he's not Adnan Januzaj.
    No one is.

    I'm not denying he had a good season, but people said he should be starting for England. Based on his performances for England, he clearly should not.

    Bale wasn't pulling up any trees at Barkley's age either really but look what's happened the last 3 years or so. He's got the potential to go a long way so long as he doesn't get too comfortable like we've seen with plenty others down the years. Would be a travesty for him to end up warming the bench at City/Chelsea.

    He's got a lot of developing to do still imo.

    He's a good player with good potential. He had one good season at Everton, to be a good player you need to consistently have good seasons where you improve year on year.

    At the moment if he continues improving and playing well he could be worth the hype but the jury is still out on him

    Gareth Bale at the age of 21(one year older than Barkley) got a hattrick vs inter milan...

    And at 20 he was the guy that looked like a monkey who went 24 games without being on the winning side for Spurs. He had potential but little else then, same as Barkley now.

    he didn't have much of an impact in the England team, he did have his moments though with the odd getting past defenders.

    All season I never saw what the fuss was about... He could become great, but he's certainly not great right now. Looks like he's permanently confused and he plays like it too, only has one thought at all times - run at the goal and shoot. If he wasn't English he'd be a complete nobody.

    Can't say I counted, but quite a lot - every game against top 4, both games against Utd, both games against Southampton all for sure. Possibly some others as well. Watched them quite a lot because of Lukaku, and Fantasy Football. Pretty sure Barkley didn't play in all of them tho.

    Agreed on Wilshere, but Rooney got a goal and an assist. He deserved to be included.

    I hate it when people use this line. His general performance was poor bar those two imo as was the rest of the team.

    Also think that Hodgson tactics ****ed up the whole team.
