    Has it been noted here already what a dodged bullet Ross Barkley appears to have been?

    I can't believe nobody on here thought that might be the case beforehand.

    It's a bit early to be making assertions like that IMO.

    He hasnt played in so long he was never going to hit the ground running.

    Should be something kept in mind with Moura as well. He has trained more, of course, but still not match sharp.

    It depends whether you're talking about fitness or judgement. Of course, he needs to settle in. But Conte sounded quite surprised about what he saw.

    Fortunately, Moura has more of an opportunity to ease in gradually as a supersub, although wouldn't mind seeing him start against Newport.

    He has been out a hell of a long time without any games, Im not sure its fair to even judge Barkleys decision making - especially being a new team as well.

    Undeniably though Conte seems really disappointed so far. As a slight aside, things just arent right there at the minute so who knows, maybes its a symptom of a larger issue?

    Id start Moura against Newport, with the intention of giving him 45, and maybe give him a little longer if he feels good.

    This might be a good confidence booster if he can produce on the night.
