IIRC, back at the beginning of the season Larkin was talking his game about playing part-time and being on the club to show Lopez the ropes. I thought that was noble of him - this is petulant.
Let it go, Barry. Please. You're endearing yourself to nobody.
I too am getting tired of the annual "Barry is hurt and disapointed story." He needs to realize that this club needs to move on.
I guess he keeps playing this up to the media because it seems to work for him every time he does it.
