Barnes didn’t get on the pitch tonight hopefully he’s steams into Puel’s office and says he wants regular playing time.

Faint glimmer of hope that he will be allowed back to us? It's still highly unlikely though.  :(

 :( No he has gone...not returning...he will keep the bench warm at Leicester...holding back his development.He will be lucky to get 10 mins here and there.
Very sad for such a talented player....but hey "no sour grapes"we enjoyed his time with us.

He will be back here in the summer on a permanent deal.

All jokes aside, if he hardly plays for the rest of the season then we should be putting a big bid in for him in the summer. His career will be ruined if he doesn't play regularly

He's a Rogers kind of player and could now flourish.
More chance the next team he play's for is England rather than WBA. Leicester are lucky fuggers.

If Rogers liked Burke his balls will probably burst when he starts working with Barnes. Imagine the damage Barnes would do in the SPL.

God bless you Harvey for giving us hope, because if we had not had you for half a season we would be in a relegation battle now.
It's the hope that kills you.

Going to be hard to find anyone like him knocking about willing to come down to us and if you mean try and actually sign him then there is more chance of Big Dave being in charge Wednesday than us signing Harvey Barnes on a permanent. Not a chance in hell he would want to leave Leicester to come here and n chance we could afford him

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

Yes, but he's a cog that we have desperately missed and failed to replace. Our successes and failures are more to do with tactics and team selection than losing Barnes, although it would be crazy to dismiss the impact his creativity and goals had on our team

But if an important cog falls off a machine then the machine breaks down. And that's what has happened. He was virtually our only creative outlet. If you look at our midfield, we have either age or inexperience. And we have 3 recognised strikers. He was a vital mixture of both midfield and attack.

He was probably instructed to stay up the pitch and not track back. Despite 'not passing to players in better positions' he massed up 8 or 9 assists without taking corners and free kicks (notice who setup Vardy's hundredth goal on Saturday). He's a modern attacker who shifts the ball at speed - he will occasionally lose the ball or choose the wrong option but a lot of the time it's about doing 2 or 3 things in a game that make a difference. If he was just 'OK' God help the rest of our players.

Some players get better and better in their absence.  However, the more i see other players the more sure I am  that this kid was and is the real deal.  Seeing him not only out pace, but also out muscle Hutton at the Hawthorns before leaving him for dead was my moment of the season.   An ability to carry the ball for a distance at pace, an eye for a forward pass, and a goalscorer to boot.   Possibly went back to the PL early, but by all accounts after a patchy start he has really started to look the part for Leicester and now has a manager who can really develop him.  Anybody still thinking he might play for us again, more likely the next team he might play for other than Leicester will be England if he can improve his overall game.

If we're saying he was only average then it's either so grapes or blind optimism of what else we have.

He single-handedly won us points (Sheff Wed away as an example) and we have missed him sorely since he went back to Leicester. With him, alongside Gayle and Rodriguez, in the team we were able to simply rely on our attackers to win games without having to have too much of a tactical plan going forward.

Now he's gone we need more of a plan cause his replacements are not as good. I had thought it was foolish by Leicester to recall him and he'd benefit from the extra half a season at us, which I probably still stand by but he's still had decent game time even in PL.

Yep...and I honestly think he'll be persuaded to leave his beloved Leicester by Man Utd or similar. Fantastic player.

Barnes went missing for long periods of games for us, but his contribution should not be down played, with Phillips he was easily our best player in the first half of the season. Even on an off day he could spring to life and produce a moment of brilliance. We haven't adequately replaced him, shoe-horning our best striker into his role even though he is massively unsuited to it, thereby weakening 2 positions.

Whether he was having a good game or not the one thing the boy had was QUALITY. Quality on the ball that made a difference. His vision, his timing and execution of a pass, his composure on the ball. He hurt teams. Someone mentioned the goal he created v Villa. Yes others may have got to the ball first as well but Barnes got his head up, didn't rush, made the correct choice and executed the pass for Gayle perfectly. We have no-one at all now that would create that goal.

At Ipswich away, I commented to my mate that he was being too predictable and kept running up blind alleys, next thing he hits the post and then pops up with the decisive goal.

He isn't a workhorse but he is a match winner / changer.  few and far between nowadays, Leicester have at least 2 in Maddison / Barnes.
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !
