09/09/2013 ToffeeLinks: The Ross Barkley Legend Grows

Shaun Botterill

The Legend of Ross Barkley grows as more and more people are praising him and writing glowing reviews of his play.

As Ross Barkley keeps getting better and better, the praise and adoration of our up and coming star is increasing at an alarming rate.

Why alarming? Well, this adds to the pressure and responsibility that are already on his shoulders as a central midfielder starter. But as he continues to thrive in that role as the pressure increases...

His legend continues to rise.

Romelu Lukaku struggles to impress in Belgium by Wim Van Walle - ESPN FC
"Romelu Lukaku is finding it hard to persuade Belgium fans and pundits of his ability."

-- Pretty odd since we think of him being one of the most talented strikers in the Premier League. Kind of gives you a sense of how good Belgium's national team has become. It also shows us how a player can be extremely good in certain situations but still be undervalued or underperform in other situations. No player should be left for dead. Except maybe Joey Barton.
