Benefited by the occasional breather recently and as a young lad it was needed.

 

Been accused on here and other forums in the past as not being an intelligent player. I've watched him at all his loans and throughout the academy and its obviously far from being true. His Dad who played in a similar fashion has passed all on and nurtured him.

 

Still gets shoved out too high and too wide IMO when Chilwell hogs the left with less affect, at his most potent cutting in.

 

Fuchs and JJ allow him to do what he does best

Ha ha Paul played nothing like him. Never had that sort of pace. But if i know him he will take that comment. His Dad has hardly nurtured him hes left it to all his coaches over the years and never got involved in his development.

Ha Ha  I stand by your better judgement. You obviously know your stuff 

 

I on the other hand have my eyes and ears up my bottom.

 

Not unreasonable to point out that a professional footballer paying fatherly interest (nurturing) in his sons career will prepare him better

 

Nurture -

-help or encourage the development of.

- care for and protect (someone or something) while they are growing.

-to help a plan or a person to develop and be successful:

Only 7 players who aren't strikers have at least 6 goals and 6 assists this season:

 

De Bruyne (8 goals, 16 assists)

Mahrez (7,8)

Mane (14,7)

Son (9,7)

Grealish (7,6)

Salah (16,6)

Barnes (6,6)

 

He's in some great company there and he's added the majority of those stats in the last three months which indicates he's finally finding his feet and on an upward trajectory. 

Great stat and when you consider it’s his first full season in the PL it shows what a talent he is. Gonna be a star. X

I'd argue that Mane and Salah are strikers really by the definition implied by the fact. 

 

The way Liverpool play is clearly set up to get those two in to goal scoring positions, they're the main goal threat of their side, playing advanced of a false nine really. 

 

Also, that De Bruyne state is ****ing insane when you consider he's missed a fair bit of football too.

5 goals and 1 assist in his last 7 league games is fantastic especially when you consider we haven't been rolling teams in that period like we were in the first few months of the season. Barnes has stepped up when the rest of the team have been off the boil. 

 

When you also think of the times especially in the first half of the season that he was getting plenty of shots off and flashed many a dangerous ball across the six yard box that never got put away. His recent stats could now be a bit of good variance or mean reversion. 

 

All the evidence is there that he is a genuine 20 goal contribution a season man in a combination of goals and assists. He a threat no doubt about it and contributes clear goal scoring opportunities almost every game which can only be said about a handful of players in this league.

I mean that’s almost elite level there. You can see the big gulf between the top dogs like Salah / KDB / Mane and the rest but he’s not far off Mahrez! And he and Grealish are in the top 10 goal contributing forwards in the country. That’s extremely impressive for someone who 16 months ago was playing for WBA in the Championship.

Where's the twat that was slating him calling  him average and pretty much saying he'd allude to nothing earlier in the season despite having good performances and clearly having promise? 

 

Or do his goals not count yesterday lol

Really looking forward to him climbing up that ranking.

I’m going to lick his arsehole. When he plays like that he is supreme. None of this pissing around, with step overs flip flaps and orang-utan testicle flick, he gets his head down, pegs it and causes defenders all kinds of problems. He is such a strong runner too, skips challenges like no tomorrow. 
 

If he can really get his finishing nailed he could be incredible, I’d take a player with his running power over someone who stands there doing stopovers and flicks.

Totally this, there’s a huge lack of direct wingers. Pace is a skill that can’t be matched if an opposition player doesn’t have it.

Absolutely, when he is like that he must be so hard to Mark. He was amazing last night, absolutely amazing. Pace and power can take you further than flicks and tricks.

So chuffed for him.

 

He looked so dangerous last night (obviously helped by the fact Guilbert is an abysmal footballer).

 

7 goals and 6 assists this season. Fabulous return. Hope he can get those numbers to ten a piece by the end of the season. They're Mahrez numbers and will surely put him in the England team.

 

It's so good to see how he's progressed. Been ages since i've seen a player come on like this in such a small amount of time. Probably not since Vardy towards the end of the great escape season. Every game he plays he seems to look more dangerous than the last. His touch and composure is just getting better and better, if he can continue adding that to his superb physicality then it won't be long until he's looked at as being one of the best wingers in the country.

 

SO pleased he's ours.

Apologies if it’s been said before, but he reminds me of Peter Barnes from the early 80’s. His direct attacking style is so similar. So much so that I had to check that it wasn’t his dad!😂

So glad he is finally finding the end product and proving why Brendan has stuck with him all season long. 
 

I also cannot wait for summer to come round and so we can watch the media try to claim that Barnes is a lifelong Arsenal fan who has always dreamed of playing under Mikel Arteta. :facepalm:

Have to say before Christmas I was worried he wouldn’t make it here. He seemed to be low on confidence. But the last couple of months he is playing superb I was to quick to judge. Barnes is gonna be a top player for club and country.

Absolutey disagree.

 

There's always ways to nullify a speed merchant, the easiest being defending deep, which effectively takes them out of the game.

 

The ability to take on your defender is what separates average/good wingers from the great ones. You'd have to double up on them which frees space for the other forwards.

 

The last thing I'd want to see is Barnes becoming a one trick pony and relying only on pace to get past his opponent. Not to mention that speed will only last so long.

Why’s there (was there :fc:) beef with him and Chilwell? Come on, someone come out with it. We could integrate it into a chant.

Im guessing Harvey is a pretty grounded down to earth lad and Chilly seems to be a playboy wanna be.. Maybe they clash.
