O'Neill Doesn't Think Barry Should Move

O'Neill Doesn't Think Barry Should Move

Not a surprising headline given what's been going on the last few days, but simply put, Barry can win just as much here.

Speaking to SSN, the manager was quite clear about the so called understanding of ideas that Tom Jones has peddled to the press.

'Gareth has two years of his contact left to run.

'It was pretty interesting that apparently there was an offer in for Steven Gerrard, I believe from some Italian team.

'The first thing Liverpool came out with was that Gerrard has a number of years left to run on his contract, so there you go.

'We might just come out with the same sort of message. We will do our utmost to do so and that's what the fans would like.'

Fans will remember in the press conference O'Neill effectively stated he wasn't sure what other language goatee might understand No in.

But there you go - desperate people just don't listen eh.

Liverpool didn't say that Gerrard has a number of years left to run on his contract, this is what we said, " The idea is complete rubbish, fantasy, there has been no approach and no bid.” O'Neill still throwing his toys out of the pram I guess.

By the way, this is what Gerrard said this week, “I cannot see myself ever leaving Liverpool now, and what I would dearly love is to lead this club to the next level that I believe we are capable of reaching." I notice that Barry didn't say someting similar regarding Villa, what does that tell you?

Read what Barry told the oficial site 2 weeks ago. If you do insist on coming on here, try and get your facts right when you do so.

jonah, My facts are more right than your manager's, and if Barry said that he'll stay at Villa then why O'Neill is acting the way he is?

Gerrard has never even left Merseyside other than away games and that was on the coach. Barry was a Spuz fan as a youngster and isn't so Royston Vasey like with hair growing half way down his forehead. He wants to discuss the situation with his manager and if we hadn't made Europe today he would be on his way 100%. Rafa is the one throwing his toys around after the Klinsman discussions. As for coming out with what he did before the season had finished, absolutely disgraceful.

MON is acting such because you guys have had an approach turned down then have gone to the papers. Although not strictly illegal, it is basically tapping up. Have you ever left Merseyside JohnDoe, most scousers are living in a bubble and have no idea what the rest of the world thinks. Carra World Class??? next you will be saying that without Gerrard and Torres you wouldn't be fighting relegation. tut-tut

Typical f***ing scouser, his manager tries to unsettle a player contracted to another club and when That player's manager objects the scouse ******** comes on here mad-mouthing him.

Villan444, The Liverpool Echo isn't the mouth piece of Liverpool, they tend to speculate on the players that we want to sign, and they get it more wrong than right. They speculated that Liverpool wanted to buy Barcelona's LB Abidal for 8 mil recently, something that the club subsequently denied. The Barry's bid speculatuion was confirmed by O'Neill, not Liverpool. He's the one who talked about it in the press, not Rafa. You won't find any quote from a Liverpool official discussing Barry before O'Neill confirmed the bid. My guess that, with Arsenal and Chelsea also interested in Barry, he wants to start a bidding war on him. That's why he's acting the way he is.
