Bid For Barry In? Load of Rubbish! Updated

Bid For Barry In?  Load of Rubbish! Updated

Reports today are suggesting that Liverpool have made a bid of £10million for Villa captain Gareth Barry.

It is my understanding that the press are talking through their hats and no doubt some quotes will follow saying there has been no contact from Liverpool.

If there has been contact and the bid is £10million I think we all have suggestions where they can stick it!

The Sun are re-hashing the rumour that Rafael Benitez is after Barry and wants to use Peter Crouch as part of the deal. They say O'Neill is 'apparently' a 'huge admirer' of the England striker.

Yawn, old story.

Bill Howell of the Birmingham Mail says that Villa will take £8million and Peter Crouch.

£10 mill? Funniest thing I've heard all season. Would they let Gerrard go for £10 or £12 mill? Hell no! And Barry is just as important to us as Gerrard is to them!

Just read that the deal is 8 million and crouch coming this way g.b going to liverpool i would take that to be honest barry can be replaced he is very good but not great.

updated as above, Brum mail reckons we'll take £8m + Crouch. Good deal or not? I'd say not!

Talk is cheap, they can bid all they want. As MON said we are not a feeder club and if we were it wouldn't be for f***ing Liverpool.

Crouch, Risse and 5mill, i hope there is no fobbing Carson off on us, really not a big fan for how much they rate him as!
02/05/2008 14:29:00
And UTV, i think even MON has to look at what a good fincancial deal for him is cuz as we've learned before, naming no names, if a player wants to go, they generally do so might as well try and get the best deal we can, i'm not happy with it, captain and old captain going at the end of the season, who would be new? NCR? I'd rather give it the Hare lol
