Your Shout For Barry

Your Shout For Barry

In todays Birmingham Mail there is a call to arms to all of us of the Claret and Blue persuasion to let Gareth Barry know that Villa Park is best.

The Mail want us to write, email, phone, send morse code or smoke signal our need for 'Villa's Heartbeat' to remain where he is.

For the past few years, his Barryness has been the backbone of our side, conducting himself with the consumate proffessionalism that
got him an England Recall after years of being ignored by the national side, finally returning due to Steve Mclaren.
We need to remind him that his England chances could be damaged by warming the bench at liverpool, whereas his name is the first on O'neills team sheet. the transformation at Villa sets a precedent amidst all of the takeovers with Randy Lerner happy to step back from the spotlight and allow the club to thrive with no egos making the back page.

Villa are on the up and I for one want Gareth Barry to stay and finish the job.

If he does go, at least theres something else we can blame Mclaren for!

Must admit, I tend to agree jonah, it is a priviledge to play at Villa Park for the mighty Aston Villa. If the manager and owner can't convince him that his future is here, then fine. Would hate to see him go, he's been my favourite player for years, but fans should not have to get down on bended knees, we do our bit already!

Johan.. Well Said! ii Ent Really Bothered If He Goes But Would Be Good To See Him Stay! If He Livez,, It Well Be A Waste Of Talent,, Liverpool Wont Have Nowere To Play Him! PeaceOut

Hope he doesn't read these previous comments gents. Our captain should have our total support whenever, where ever. We as a club made him the player he is today and he has repaid us by giving 100% in almost every game (noone plays to their full ability all the time.) He is irreplacable otherwise the likes of the Scousers would be after this someone else. I know Villa still lives on even if he goes but the man knows every inch of grass on that pitch after 10 years here and he is consistently our most reliable, adaptable player. He has played leftback, centreback and every midfield position this year. Other than Essien, there is noone as good in this role.

I don't disagree with a word you have said Villan444. I hope he stays too, in fact I have been saying to anyone who will listen for weeks that I think he will. None of that changes my original post though, he will either stay or he will leave. If he doesn't know how villa fans feel about him by now he never will, and I repeat, I for one will not be begging him to stay.

looks like lpool dont have the dosh anyway...
19/05/2008 19:26:00
I would like him to stay but his agent will be stirring the ****e and promising a bumper pay day elsewhere. Although I do remember a situation with Gerrard a few years back and the next season he was lifting the European cup. just imagine barry lifting the UEFA. It could happen
