Something In The Air With Barry?

Something In The Air With Barry?

Well, the official site are quoting David O'Leary as telling clubs not to waste their time in bidding for Villa's left sided midfielder Gareth Barry.

Again, I hope he has told Doug, especially with Tottenham Hotspur linked so strongly.

There is a rumour on the Vital Spurs site that Barry thinks 'something is in the air' with regards to a move and yet O'Leary has said that the only players he doesn't want to be considered for sale are Gareth Barry and Steven Davis.

Barry was voted Players' Player of the Year and in my humble opinion kept us up with his performances whilst all around him faltered.
O'Leary said: 'I would fight tooth and nail to keep Gareth. He's been consistently one of our best players since I've been here. But the fact is, thankfully no one has come and asked me about him. Stories saying Tottenham are interested in him are a load of rubbish - they, nor anyone else, has ever came in for him.'

Taken from the Vital Spurs comments - in an article about Carrick:

This is a bit random, so here is as good a place as any to put it. I went to Ascot on Friday with a group of mates and the guy I normally come to WHL with was with me, whilst in line for the cash-point, who was in front of him but Gareth Barry, (who I walk by later), so Rob shook his hand and said, what about coming to Spurs next year, to which Gareth gave a rye smile and said, 'well there defiantly seems to be something in the air.' Took his cash and wander off. I must admit it is not the scoop of the year and is only a passing observation, but as the story is only once removed and I was in the building, I thought it was worth a mention. ajm

On the basis we don't look like changing the Chairman or the Manager (both would've been good), we might as well change the players?

Change the players yes...but lets start with the crap ones not our best ones. DOL coming out and saying he is not for sale worries me..reads more like well come and offer and then we will say he was unhappy so had to sell to me! Hope I'm wrong!

This happens all the time over here in US, you here rumours and the club squash it saying they are not for sale then a month later they are sold. My guess is that he is for sale and they are just trying to get more money for him. It would be another huge mistake if we let him go.

I can't believe for one minute that he would be sold. Although if he is, it might be the catalyst for a full scale revolt against HDE. I think Baros will be first out however quickly followed by JPA

It would all become a rather moot point were Gareth to really rock the ship by asking for a transfer. Who knows whether or not this possible transfer talk has unsettled him? A move to White Hart Lane would certainly be an attractive proposition for him. European club football to look forward to, a seemingly go-ahead ambitious board, a top notch manager, and talented individuals making up a very impressive first team squad.
