78% Say Don't Sell Barry

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Young_Jonah,

Would You Sell Gareth Barry?

78% said no,it sends out the wrong signals

7% were more realistic saying that the club would have no choice if Barry wants to go. Lets face it, the power is with the players these days, Dwight Yorke proved that when he was told he couldn't leave for Manchester United so conducted himself with no honour at all on the pitch walking around without any interest at all. He got his way and off he went. 7% said they would sell Barry if the 12million fee was offered and another 7% said they'd let him go but only for a higher fee.

That left just 1% unsure.

Our latest poll asks for your predictions for the Villa v Blues game. I've worded it so the bluenoses can also vote because last time we had an invasion with votes for us to lose!

Liverpool are in Debt by 31.5m because they loaned the money to buy Babel and Torres, they will need to give us Crouch and Riise or a deal like the same for Barry. Liverpool have no money, and they could be forced to sell Babel or Torres to get the 31.5m they owe.

That could be just paper talk villa4ever. I highly doubt a club like liverpool would make financial moves to buy a player like torres if they had to sell him a year later.

He has probably put his value up a good 10m though, anyway its probably the reason they are trying to offload Crouch and Carson for 10m each. Thing is look at Man Utd, they loaned the money to pay for the club, Liverpool were expecting to challenge for the title this season, not come 4th. I dunno....

Barry is a quality player that you guys need to hold onto. He'd definitely be in my shortlist for Premiership player of the year.

I voted without hesitation NOT to off-load Gareth, but I have to admit that I'm not expecting to see him at Villa Park come September 1st. Hope I'm very, very wrong.

Glensider I agree with you are often, and once again i agree with your two points. 1.I am not confident he will be there either. 2. I hope you are wrong!!!

Frankly hilarious that you rule out the Liverpool rumours as paper talk when there still aren't any quotes justifying the Barry rumours, johnny. Still....

I voted No, though the wording made me uneasy about doing so. Has very little to do with sending out signals of any sort, just because it would be a huge loss to us and a massive gain to whoever got him, despite what anyone else may think. glen has got a new "be negative about everything and then it'll all go the other way" policy that seems to be working well, so I'll go with that.

I'd hate to see him go, particularly for the laughable 12m. How can Carson be worth 10m and Barry then 12m. No he must be worth at least teh 15m ManU paid for Carrick, but prob a bit more. So all in all Liverplop need to offer a good 318m to even start the ball rolling. Rather keep him though

In the end, it really doesn't matter how we vote, or what the club's intentions are, or what signals it might send out. The decision will ultimately be Gareth Barry's and that decision will depend on his heart AND his head. Which will win out? What would each of us do, honestly, in his situation? I know one thing: there is absolutely no point in keeping a player if he really wants to go. I 'desperately' want to keep GB too, but I've been desperate to keep many other players over the years, but they've all been replaced. That's football ...

Truest words ever spoken BobThe Builder. Over the years quality favoutites have 'upped and offed', all to be replaced. The bottom line is of course that no one man is bigger than the club.
