To start with he didn't want to stay and refused to re-sign...

then, when a deal was agreed with Chelsea (>£20m?), he decided it wasn't for him, and then ended up going there the next window at a reduced fee, having been injured for the intervening time.
FWIW it takes a lot to piss me off with former players these days, and Barkley didn't reach that bar so I don't remember having any 'fume' about the scenario.
I wouldn't want him back simply because he's completely failed to hit the levels his early form promised, which is a shame.
Can someone please remind me of the controversy around him leaving us?
I know everyone calls him a snake now, but I canít for the life of me remember why?
Reason for asking - Iíve got a feeling weíre going to sign him on loan.
