Anyone clock Wonder Roy's pre-match moment of genius? 11:40 - Oct 15 with 916 viewsBigManBlue

Q. "Ross Barkley, what's his best position?"
A. "On the bench".

As if we needed another reminder that he lacks any understanding of the game beyond being a bully and a loudmouth.

Well said Roy. Some people have NO idea about football.

He isn't wrong though. Barkley is very average and two goals against Bulgaria don't change that.

When fit I would have Maddison and Mount over him. I would also have Grealish.

Don't disagree that those two would be above him, but the dismissive tone in which he rubbished the bloke just reminded me why he's absolutely unable to get the best (or anything at all) out of people as a manager. There's clearly a player in Barkley, but saying "I don't know what role he plays" isn't going to help uncover it.

He is right though, Barkley's best position is on the bench.

Played 1 full 90 minute in the league so far. Scored none assisted none.

When was the last time Ross Barkley controlled and dominated a big game.

Scoting 2 against Bulgaria doesn't scream class to me, when he's dominating big games I'll sit up and notice.

So, he's basically Alan Judge for rich people?

There is a player in Barkley. But what role does he play in a midfield?

Would imagine it falls to your opinion on Alan Judge.

He plays up to it.

He knows people like his honesty and his cutting reviews, so he makes it his thing.

Whether he's right or wrong i don't think he's ever had an opinion on anything football related that I've been the slightest bit interested in so i have to say i struggle with him as some sort of pundit. I suppose the fact that he managed the club i support incredibly badly means i should show some interest, but it's difficult.

Always seen him as an attacking playmaker type midfielder. Not sure he really fits in at Chelsea - as has been said, Mount is without doubt a better option in that position. He probably would have been better off staying at Everton and trying to cement a role as the star man there, was always my feeling.

Out of interest, which midfielders do dominate big games nowadays?

It's not like it used to be.
