its all bout profit now sell players snd pocket the money. yeah lets look back 12 months and the same rubbish players that got us relegated but all of a sudden they are world beaters again becsuse of a 6 game season snd people are desperate to keep.until players like nyom,brunt,barry and kanu are out the team we may aswell enjoy life back as a mid table club cause that is what we are
.   Got rid some of the players that got us relegated . Cut wages , made a profit, and replaced them with young,hungrier players .Its called shrewd business.

Can you see anyone coming in for Barry, Nyom or Kanu, I can't so, we're stuck with them on contract.  I quite like Nyom, at least he has a go, and you never know, Barry might have a conscience and decide he doesn't want to end his career on a whimper and actually really give it a go.

He is an improvement on McClean. He is left footed so he does not add to the stockpile of right footed wide players so he isn't blocking anyone.
Are you sure he's left-footed? I watched the Youtube video that was posted at the beginning of this thread and the vast majority of what he did was with his right foot.

According to Transfer Markt he is right footed and in all the photos I've seen of him shooting he is using his right foot.

Some of the best left wingers to have played the game have been right footed. Especially in modern day football.

Well considering we got ourselves relegated there's nothing we can do about nurturing Leicester's talent for them, it's our fault and we'll have to deal with it.

If Barnes contributes in a team that are promoted then we're back where we started from and will have greater funds with which to secure ourselves a permanent replacement. As a replacement for McClean, he's younger, has a better goalscoring record and we've made the best part of £5m profit.

You're also forgetting we still have the likes of Chadli, Dawson and Rondon - who now they're involved in pre-season cannot be written off. The plan is obviously to hold onto these players, hence why the clauses run out before the end of the window. If these players stay, they're better than any business Stoke or Swansea or whoever else in the Championship has done so far this summer.

Keeping hold of these players also means we probably wont be seeing any big money signings coming in and to me it seems we're trying to build a strong group of young attacking players, something we've been needing for years. Relax.

I’d like to think we’re doing that but no signing at the moment points to that. Barnes is a loan (short term thinking) so will go straight back to Leicester and the rest of our attacking midfielders/strikers are all late 20s or in their 30s. You’d hope Burke can force his way into that this season but I’m not sure Moore trusts him.

Barnes did look lively last night in spells and he clearly has the potential to do the business.

My bad saw that he was described as a left winger and assumed he was left footed. Not so sure about the wisdom of this move as I start to wonder about the tactical fit. More than happy with him being a right footed left winger in a 4-4-1-1 but if this isn't balanced by a left footed right winger then the team's shape starts to become skewed to the right.

Is the fact he's seen as a direct replacement for McLean maybe a bit misleading ? From his YouTube clips he looks capable of playing on either side plus the way he seems to spot others and link up he looks suited to an AM/No 10 type role.

We've played wingers on the "wrong" side a lot in recent years, even the paceless Brunt has been played on the right. The Youtube video shows Barnes playing on both wings and, watching how he plays, I'm sure he can be more effective than many of our wide players of late.

What I found interesting about Barnes today is that he did not seem to be a speed merchant who uses his oace to get on the outside of a full back. Instead, he seems more of a foot on the ball wide man who likes to come inside and get a shot off, or to work with the players around him to create and crsft changes.

He did have a go at the full back a few times, but there seemed to be a bit of variety about his play which was impressive.

He will give defenders something a little different to think about this season and give a different option to Burke or Phillips.

Yes noticed that in his YouTube clips, seems to look and is very aware of players in space or making runs (tad different to McLean)

You could see in the first five minutes he's a class above McClean. He's intelligent for a young kid, mixes his game up and has that quality about him.

Seemed to set us up to be on the front foot today which was pleasing. Bolton look like they will set up shop and sit deep, so it was good to see us try and keep the ball and play intricate one twos (Barnes, Morrison and HRK in particular).

I really hope we can take this positive style of play into the season and get some early wins under our belt.

Fingers crossed!

Utter class again today, hopefully Leicester do well as we would suffer without him. At hand in the first 3/4 goals if I remember correctly and bossed it.

No harm in trying, but they'd be mad to take it. He signed a new Contract just before coming to us
Whenever things look bad, remember the Port Vale, Grimsby and Walsall days... not so bad now, eh?!

I hope James Maddison has a brilliant season for Leicester ;) If we go up and Barnes enjoys his time here maybe we could tempt him. Early days but he is the kind of player we have been crying out for (especially if Chadli doesn't come back).

Reminds me of Morrison last time we were in the champ. Could be his long term successor if we can tempt him.

Oozes class and confidence. Signing of the window. He could be the difference between going up and staying where we are. He just has that ability to creat something out of nothing. 9/10 for me today and I don't say that lightly.

Spot on post. He has time on the ball and uses it intelligently, which are signatures of a class act
respect and humility for everyone, absolutely everyone, who we come into contact with”

Bit of a talent this kid is. Involved in everything good for us this season, unfortunately doubt we’ll be able to sign him permanently after this season
