Time to change the conversation from “best youth team product since Heskey” to “best youth team product since Lineker”.

 

Absolutely electric and still has lots of room to improve.

Another great performance from him today. He's starting to settle into the role where he's sees thing early and has the confidence to take it on.

He is developing a good understanding with Maddison and Thomas in how to play around corners.

 

He's only going to get better.

He’s gone from a rough diamond to a sparkling jewel this season.

 

Every time he sets himself to run at a defender, you get a sense of excitement that something might happen. It doesn’t always come off, obviously, but he has become such a consistent threat with the ball at his feet.

 

He has obviously been well coached and furthermore you can see that he has worked really hard at improving his finishing. All credit to him.

What a great player we’ve got on our hands, where are last seasons grumblers now? They’ve gone very quiet, championship player.....yeah ok 😊🦊

I criticised him a lot last season and praised him a lot this season. He's been superb this season and pushed on a lot. But his finishing and lack of decision making and composure in front of goal last season was poor and deserved criticism, don't really see what the problem is with criticising him last season was. Thankfully he's improved it a lot this season and it's pushed him on to the next level.

Spot on this. It does make me laugh the people who say nothing and then when a player comes good they call others out for having an opinion when they weren't playing well. Going from the fence to the high horse seems the way forward for some on here.

There's criticism which is fine but some were saying get him back to the championship etc. which aimed at a promising academy graduate rubs me the wrong way. The same way some people crossed the line with Chilwell

Don’t want to harp on about it as he’s left but the difference between him and Gray is like chalk and cheese . Barnes has clearly worked hard on his game and listened to the coaching staff and just keeps on improving which is frightening considering it only his second Prem  season  . Gray just stood still .

Every club has a small minority of idiots. The same people that booed Ghezzal and also booed Iheancho. The same people that go over board with the criticism of the likes of Perez and previously Chilwell. It is a very very small minority of Leicester fans and is not the general consensus. Same at every club.

Yeah absolutely, there's always that tiny nagging doubt that someone is destined to not quite make it but even when he wasn't scoring that frequently he was becoming a blistering direct player which I didn't really see from him in the academy. He has the world at his feet, he really does. 

To me he always seemed to be “too accurate” as the shots always seemed to go straight at the goalkeeper :sweating: Like he almost needed to be more erratic with his finishes lol

He scares the living shite out of opposition defenders and he's had a field day against nearly all he's played against this season. He's such a force for us and the pace, power and dynamism him and Vardy show when we break is too much for virtually every defence in this league. A genuine joy to watch and he's only going to get better.

Not to pile on, but Barnes is very similar to JJ in that you could tell as soon as he started getting time he was a good player that was only going to get better.  I can understand it, but sometimes patience is required and you have to not dig into young players that aren't playing up to what you think is par.  

 

Take a look at his goal again, as soon as Vardy starts to take the shot, Barnes makes his movement to get on the right side of the Villa defense and become an option - he anticipated the save and rebound - if he hadn't have started moving BEFORE the save, that wouldn't have been a goal.

I do not accept that it is a "very very small minority" on here.  It’s probably 20 or 25% of the volume of posts.  It’s like trudging through sewage at times, even when we are doing well.

 

Don’t downplay this aspect of our fanbase.  For me it is the one disappointing thing about the club.
