Sorry for having an opinion about the player who’s holding us back. I won’t next time 

Yep holding us back, clear in 2nd place which is beyond anyones expectations, please define holding us back.

I an starting to think you are a Forest fan on the wind up

Barnes is quality and we are lucky to have him. Hopefully he gets a goal soon to boost his confidence. 

He was scoring for fun when at WBA..some crackers as well.

PL different I know but he's had some easy chances?

Yeah he has I don’t know what to say it is weird. I think when he does get a few he will be a player revitalised.

People were on maddison's back last season. Chillwell's this. But they are very quiet now.

 

It's not rocket science lads young players form dips more than more experienced players in their primes. And I have no doubt that in a few months Harvey will be making @jaylcfc94 look even more silly than he already does.

Exactly. Chilwell used to get shit loads of abuse on here. This is Harvey’s first full season in the prem ffs.

He's young and he's learning...personally I think we've got one hell of a player in Barnes.

22 isn't young, you know. Where've you been?

Barnes will come good make no mistake about it. His link up play at times is phenomenal. He walks past players with ease and gets in great positions. It's just unfortunate that at the moment for one reason or another he can't seem to bag a goal to save his life. 

 

Chilwell was the same he was awful for us for a good while but given time he repaid the managers faith and is now one of the best left backs in the premier. Barnes will be the same.

I have no idea what this response actually means,we are 2nd in the league and you continue to vilify a a young player who has contributed, you are just boring me now so i withdraw from this discussion

Of course, but firstly Vardy has proven he could do it in the past at this level and Barnes simply hasn't and had gone a whole calendar year constantly missing chances then people would absolutely be saying Vardy isn't the player he was.

We're not talking about 3 or 4 games now, we're talking about January 2019-December 2019/ All of last season we heard "he just needs a goal" - he got it after nearly fluffing an easy chance, he didn't go on a run and now all this season we've heard is "he just needs a goal.

Mate, he's averaging 1.9 shots per game this season and averaged 2.5 shots per game for us last season - in that time, he's scored a whopping 2 goals over an entire calendar year now - 1 of which was a fluffed shot that probably wouldn't have gone in if he'd hit it cleanly

We're not talking about a bit of bad form for a few games, we're talking about the absolute worst in the league shot to goals ratio over an entire calendar year! His finishing has been absolutely inexcusable for a long time now.

Albrighton and Gray score about once every decade, it's not just Barnes. You say Barnes has scored a "whopping 2 goals over an entire calendar year" yet I see you constantly backing and calling for Albrighton yet his best return is about 3 goals in a season, not exactly a massive difference is it.

 

It took Vardy a whole season before he looked like he was the finished package, so to speak. I always backed Vardy on here, he was decent but not finished package, he wasn't clinical when he first joined.

 

Barnes is still young and learning. As I said earlier, if we had enough quality out wide he'd probably be sent out on loan to another PL side to get better but we haven't got that quality. We haven't had a quality winger, someone who will win us games, since Mahrez. And we're not a club to have quality in depth.

6.9 is 6.9. 6 is 6.

Please don’t further confuse him. I think he is currently napping as not heard anything in a while.

Needs serious work on his finishing if he's gonna make it as a regular. Such a talented kid with a bright future but his shooting is largely woeful

Barnes struggled yesterday for sure but cut the fella some slack. He's still young and is fighting for a place in a Champions League chasing team. Echoes of the ludicrous criticism Chilwell was getting not so long ago. Just trust Brendan's judgement.

Wow so much very idiot in one thread.

To put simply @jaylcfc94 6.0 is 6.

Anything more than this is greater than 6. To use your money analogy if you had £6.60 in your pocket, you would have more than £6. 

If you were measuring and something was 6.6cm it would be longer than 6cm.

I'm not going to be too harsh on Barnes

He is a young man. Still learning, not everyone has finishing at that age. Or any age for that matter sometimes.

I'm not saying we get rid of him.

But he's just not enough RN. We should not be putting so much pressure on a 22 year old winger to produce so much. I said it before and I'll say it again. We need two new wingers, or one when Perez realises  its been half the season and turns into prime Gareth bale...what  I'm saying is

Give Barnes time...he'll come good,right now there's just a bit too much pressure
