Spurs Can Get Lost!

Spurs Can Get Lost!

According to a report in the Daily Mail today, Villa are 'bracing themselves' for a £3.5million bid from Tottenham for left sided midfielder Gareth Barry.

Rubbish. Villa aren't bracing themselves for anything, let alone a bid of £3.5million for a player worth double that.

IF Villa were to sell Gareth Barry for a sum like that, I would send my season ticket back and that would be it for me. We might be a selling club these days but I don't think even our lot would be that stupid? £7million would surely be the bottom line and then we still shouldn't sell?

Barry, in my ever so humble opinion, was the main reason we stayed up last season, we can't afford to let him go if we want to do the same in the 2006/7 season and O'Leary knows it as Barry and Davis are apparently the two players he is insisting Villa keep.

Our latest poll coincides with this story with 46% of Villa fans who voted saying that Villa must not sell Gareth Barry. Full article: Click Here

Amen to that Mr Fear.. 10million is the only figure that should even be worthy of reading a fax from Spurs.

Get lost? Thats not very nice. ;) Come on, admit it, he is dying to come back to London and play for the team he supported as a kid. COYS.

I think this is just paper talk but if he was sold for a rubbish sum like that, I'd return my season ticket in disgust. Trouble is I do fear that he might want to move to a club with ambition as careers are short and players like that should be playing in Europe.

spurs always put in cheeky bids, 5 mill for van nist 2.5 for chimbonda then they spend 11 mill on a lazy russian, they can go screw themselves. Our future captain is staying put.
02/06/2006 10:23:00
If he wanted to leave, would you accept him being sold for £10 million?
02/06/2006 10:25:00
Well if there one final thing that Ellis and DOL could do to annoy us even more this would be dont rule it out!
02/06/2006 10:25:00
Would you accept 3.5m plus Danny Murphy? There's another player who might keep you up next season.
02/06/2006 10:32:00
I'm sorry but there is no way Barry is worth 10m! Then again, 3.5 is a tad cheeky. 5m would seem sensible to me, and as spurs fan I'd be happy with signing Barry.....
02/06/2006 10:33:00
Wouldn't be happy with Murphy, maybe Routledge + £8m ;-)) (You see Doug, this his how you negotiate!!!)
