No Transfer Request From Barry

Great, more good news.

Gareth Barry it seems has not handed in a transfer request, despite reports saying the Villa midfielder wanted out of Villa Park.

Villa have already turned down a bid from Portsmouth and although Spurs manager Martin Jol is said to be interested, it is thought the manager-less (and leadership less!) club aren't willing to allow him to go.

Caretaker boss Roy Aitken said: 'I haven't spoken to Gareth about wanting to leave, but he has shown a commitment to the club which is first-class. He's virtually played every minute of pre-season and he's a joy to work with. I wouldn't be surprised if there were teams looking at Gareth, but he hasn't rocked the boat with me.'

Just heard Ellis has died in his sleep - what was that dear? - I'm telling ya I don't snore!! For the love of GOD! THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE

Christo - why would he want to stay at Villa instead of Portsmouth?? Pompey finished ONE place below you last year, and are spending money and building for next season. What are Villa doing?? Not a fat lot except ******ing about whos going to buy the club, whos the next manager etc etc etc...

Guys, Whats a Pompy

A couple of points to make fellas. lil_blues_fan are you lost? This is a Premiership site. The fizzy pop one is elsewhere. Steve64k makes a great point ........ what is a Pompey? I think it is Poor Opposition Made Poorer Every Year! As for Barry going anywhere there are a couple of things that will determine this. Spurs need a left sided midfielder but if Carrick is worth 18 million then Barry is worth at least 20million. We know they have the money so to sell him for the 5 or 6 million mentioned would be ridiculous. However the Barry leaving stories surfaced when Sven was linked with the managers job. Barry and Sven had a falling out just after Sven got the England job and if he had taken over as manager, then he would have been the first one out. With MON looking likely to take over all the players will want to stay. Dare I say it but with MON and new financial backers in, Ellis out and hopefully 3 or 4 quality additions to the squad, next season could see Villa Park full to the rafters watching exciting footy. Bring it on.

Ellis out - now aint that the truth!!! THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
Steve64k
lets hope he stays. mind you given the money spurs have now after carrick perhaps now is the best time to cash in??

Anyway... its more interesting than our site (sorry... our part of Vital Football) at the moment.. you've got so much more to moan about than us and its great watching you whinge!!! Anyway, the fishings good here... only have to cast a small one and theres always someone who'll bite!!!!
lil_blues_fan
Come on lil_blues_fan I know u want to ... tell us how little u are ...THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE Steve64k
Steve64k
mcgoo sorry mate but Spurs wouldn't pay more than between about 2-3m for Barry. Best off keeping hold of him.

Gareth's frustration is probably common to all members of the playing staff. The uncetainty allied to the lack of direction and ambition that the club has been showing is bound to unsettle the players. Hopefully a new manager. plus we trust, new owners and a new board, will convince Gareth that staying at VP will offer him the same opportunities to challenge and compete, that he will find elsewhere.

Yet another case of the press trying to make a story out of nothing
