It must be me, but I find it hard to understand how young Mr Barnes has acquired this messia like status?
He was OK scored a good few goals but he also went up a lot of blind allies, frequently lost the ball, didn't pass to players in better positions and was god awful at tracking back.
But to put all our successes, untill his departure, solely down to him is a bit OTT in my opinion. He was but one cog in a much bigger machine

I know what you are saying Frank, but he was the cog in our team, and whilst he had quieter games and occasionally run up blind alleys, he made things happen and sometimes came out of these blind alleys and with a goal or an assist. He was not afraid to try these things and have a go. Its no co incidence that since he was recalled, the team has gone south with their performance.

A bit like when we had Lukaku, it was a pleasure to have seen such a talented lad play for the Albion and I wish him all the very best.

What have we done?
And what have we become
In this distance from our Mother
From the gates of late Eden?

Could he still be offered up as a Player of the Year nominee?
Humanity is a parade of fools, and I’m at the front of it...twirling the baton.

Why not? I am struggling to see anyone ahead of him......

He's been our biggest loss of the season, our only creative outlet. He could be anonymous for 70 minutes and then do something to win us a game, no other player has shown anything such as that this season, not one of them.

While he has been a big loss no doubt, I personally think Phillips has been a bigger loss. When Phillips is firing on all cylinders, we tend to smash teams. Gutted he's gone though, it was a breath of fresh air watching him tear up the championship for us.. It was fun while it lasted.

Love the kid to bits. Wish him a million per cent luck in everything he does.

BUT please don't post like that in this thread, for a mini-second I was hopeful you were going to tell me he's coming back.

going to have to have a brandy now!
