    One other thing I like about Barnes which shows how old fashioned I am. It seems to me Barnes celebrations of his goals are a little bit more restrained than many. Obviously goals mean so much now in terms of money that celebrations are more and more exotic although shirts off are now banned. Nothing wrong with that I just prefer a bit more restraint. I went to a grammar school in itself giving my age away a bit, a school that year after year had a superlative football record (I was n't ever in the team) often going a whole season without defeat even though there were occasional matches against Cambridge college teams. Woe betide any forward or player showing any excess emotion at scoring a goal. Almost always they are a team effort and the goal scorer has the easiest job of all.but I prefer the old fashioned--score-= straight back for kick off. I suspect that approach probably demoralises the opposition more , acting as if all goals are routine.

    Prefer the likes of Vardy’s eagle personally

    Go on then.... pick through Justin's performances vs Sheffield Utd, Brighton, Spurs, Man Utd and compare them to the majority of Ricardo's games. I'll give you 24 hours, I'd be astonished if you have anything to the contrary. He has been unreal and his improvement recently has been huge. Whether he maintains that isn't certain but neither is Ricardo returning to his optimum immediately and that's my argument. Justin has pretty much been our sole source of creativity this past month.


    Just for a bit of context - on whoscored.com Ricardo averages 7.4 for us since he's been here (a high average that is). Justin for the month of December averages 7.2 so not too far off with my wild statement. So many chances created by Justin, penalties won, assists either not awarded to him for crap VAR decisions or deflections. He's in the form of his life. Anyway, him as the RCB with Ricardo at RWB could be phenomenal in the tactical battles we have with the supposed big 6.

    That’s the real quiz
