'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barry Wants Quick Decision - Here's One, NO move!

According to the press today, Gareth Barry wants a quick decision over his future.

Ok, here is a quick decision, you are contracted to Aston Villa and you can't leave.

Cool. Sorted.

Next...!

He has been quoted, whilst away on England duty - yes, take note, he has become a regular England player whilst at Villa, so talk of needed champions league football to command a place is utter drivel... I digress - that he has been 'flattered' by the interest from Liverpool.

He added, that although bids have been made, if they aren't accepted he can't even start to think about making a decision.

Ok, here is another simple solution, if Liverpool want him, bid a realistic and high price for him and then Villa can decide the future of the player they have contracted to play for US.

He adds, 'Champions League football helps any player. You only have to look at the England squad to see the amount of players who get in the squad and start the games – the majority play in the Champions League. That's all about the decision that will have to be made by myself. Liverpool are in the Champions League and Villa are trying to push for that. That's all part of my decision if a bid gets accepted.'

He also speaks of the gobby comments by Liverpool captain and perennial England flop Steven Gerrard who talks a good game for the national team but more often than not doesn't turn up.

'It was a bit of a surprise to see Steven go so public. I would like things cleared up. It would be easier for myself and for the fans so I'm sure we can get it done pretty soon. I've got nothing planned with Martin O'Neill but I'm sure the manager will want to speak to me and I'll eventually want to speak to the manager. There's so much to lose at Aston Villa. I've got a good rapport with the fans, I'm captain there, I've got a great relationship with the manager.'

Cool, good rapport, captain, great relationship with the manager. No problems, no need to move. Happy days, move on Liverpool, nothing to see here!

As I've said before, after the comments by Gerrard and the public talk of Barry (whether generated by Liverpool, the players agent or Doris the tea lady) we should make it clear that the player is not for sale (or at least not for anything other than the price they think fair - a nice high price like 18-20million and who knows, every player has a price I guess?) and will not be allowed to leave this summer.

Some reports are once again suggesting Barry is on his way and that Peter Crouch, who has blasted Rafa for pricing him at 15million despite the fact he only has a year left on his current deal, will make part of the fee in a swap + cash.

If barry wants it sorted then perhaps he should tell somebody whether he wants to stay or not,MON has already said the player is not for sale how many times does he have to ******** say it,Therefore the club has made a decision,It is down to barry to have a set of balls and say whether he wants to stay or not,coming out in the media with that "i want to get it sorted" *****e like its the club who are stalling is out of order. He can sort it by commiting to the club or handing in a transfer request

Tell him he wont be leaving this summer, give him his new contract and stick a conditional release fee clause in it, allowing him to go for x amount if Villa don't meet an agreed expectation i.e. Champions League football. It wont happen, and people may scoff, but it solves everyone at Villa's issues. Gareth says it's a tough decision, don't give him one to make. MON can keep his captain and everyone knows where they stand. Otherwise, Rafa, stick your 20million in so that it can all be over nice and quick, like.

As Barry said 84 he has no decision to make, MON has, either sell him or tell him he is not going to accept an offer for him.

To be fair it the cheap scousers made a proper offer Barry probably would be sold. They haven't tho - and they haven't got much cash. It appears rafa is on a sell to buy policy, which explains why they are trying to unsettle Barry. They are hoping that we will sell him on the cheap - they can't afford to pay what he's worth. Its a stalemate right now.

Martin o`neill already has jonah weeks ago in a press conference i`m sure the video is still on the bbc site.Barry is trying to turn it round onto the club and i don`t like it.It is his decision to make now and only his,does he really want to stay or not,simple.

At this point he has captained England all be it in a friendly, that must push up his price and look at the market 15mill for Crouch, 10mill for Curtis, 10mill for Carson 20mill for Hargreves if we follow this then Barry is 30mill, every other team is demanding high prices why should we not too, 30mill plus Crouch is what I say we should ask for after the insulting way Liverpool fans and staff have acted and insulting comments they have made about Villa.

British84 - I do accept that Barry is almost saying "Just accept the bid". Its sad to see - he is worth so much more than their paltry players+bit of cash offer. He's going nowhere until the right bid is made.
The Usual Suspect
Damn right. They havnt got any money because saitan (rafa) has spunked it all on *****e like d1ck kuyt and pennant. i dont see why we just dont report them to the f.a, say hes not for sale and start our summer. he isnt goin to play near enough for plop and if anything it will hinder his england chances.

I've had enough of him now! I hope he goes and rots on their bench, then when he retires, (having played 3 years in the lower leagues) he looks back at the Villa and thinks "I could have won european medals and Premier league winners medals, if only I hadn't been so stupid and been loyal to the fans who were loyal to me for 11 years!" F*** him, we don't need him, take the cash and move us forward with players who want to be here! I was at the final home game and it was obvious then that his heart wasn't in it, as far as I could see after the game, he came back on the pitch, Olly had his moment, then we all cheered and chanted for Gareth, he didn't look up or even seem to notice, that's when I knew he was definately off!

What Barry is really saying is I want to go. But he doesn't want to lose his % of the sale price by asking for a transfer. There is no other decision to be taken than him asking for a transfer. Interesting to see Manure threaten Ronaldo with the stands for 2 years. A seat in the Holte End for 2 years Mr Barry?

I hate this situation. I don't think MON is one to be taken for a mug but I'm not sure he's going to be as tough as Fergie, we should put him in the Holte, put him in the Cop if he wants, I'm sure we can afford a season ticket down there, but we can't get walked on with this. Possible future England Captain. 20m at least.

he seems to indicate that if a bid is made that he would go else he would say these claims are ridiculous, hes keeping both sets of fans happy and sticking to the middle of the road, I would say Mon is on holiday and well earned too, he shouldnt bother about this situation until after the inter toto cup and after the euros

I'm with the bloke who suggested asking 30m. Oi Rafa, 30m or ***** all pal, we don't want ya cast offs. But I think MON is just letting Liverplop do their crap. They bid *****e, it's rejected, we want him to stay unless they pay. Bloody obvious really. Will be funny to see what the BBK geezer thinks when Chelski do a similar approach for Torres, wont be laffing then pal. I don't think GB has said anything indicating he wants to go to Liverplop. He's just mentioned the improtance of CL footy to england players is all. He aint said its essential for him, per se.

Barry is good, but he's not that good. Let's be honest. A good pass covers up his absence of pace. He's not the 'lynchpin' at Villa around which all planets rotate. I think he's a decent player. I've seen far, far better. If he's going to leave, good luck to him (I suspect at the good ship Liverpool he'll need it). We'll replace him, and get on with it. I think the damage is done. We all now know that his heart isn't 100% Villa.

its blatent tapping up - by Liverpool - i suggest we report them - as frustrating as it is at least martin o'neil says nothing about individuals, rafa could learn alot from him. but looking at how its gone over time 1. theres no decision to make 2. Wait till the internationals are over 3. every player needs champions league. I expect he will leave but it will be all the sweeter if he agrees to stay. (i personally hoped he would give us 1 more year - then he could leave on the cheap with one year left on his contract if we don't meet his expectations) he wants to go, fine no hard feelings 18m cash with international and champions league related add ons and no swapsies! - i wouldn't want villa to make it easier for them and would be hesitatant to take crouch or pennant A plus point would be at least we get the money back we have given them in benefits over the years.

No less than 30 million if they want him now. If not make him see out his contract. He'll soon settle down once he knows he's going no where. If he leaves on a fee so be it. At least we'll have had the best years out of him.

he has been tapped up by that gobby slag-gerrard and gaybeard benitez. the club look to be sitting back and taking it, mon is no where to be seen, barry said last week he was planning to meet mon and randy again this week, now he is saying he has no plans to sit down unless he gets a call of mon. he now thinks chumps league football is the answer - errrrrrr hello mcfly - you have just captained england without ever kicking a ball in the chumps league. that just wreaks of an uneduacated scouse slag-gerrard in his ear for two weeks. WTF is going on? where is the clubs control on the situation? i might take a drive upto ************ lane in solihull and see if their is a for sale sign outside barrys house.

What is all the fuss about Barry ? He maybe a very good player who we would all prefer to keep but he is not the most important player in our team. Both Young and Laursen are more valuable than Barry. He can and will be replaced IF Liverpool come up with enough money. Finally to all of those worrying that the club are going to let him go on the cheap, it isn't going to happen. We don't have to sell him, Liverpool have to buy him. The fee will be between 15m-18m or 8m plus crouch. If Liverpool are prepared to meet our valuation then he will be sold.

Some of you people don't half talk some crap! Barry has not said anything like, "I want to go but the club won't let me" MON has said that Barry is not for sale, in public buut in private we all know that every player has his price. It would not surprise me if MON has called Barry in and asked him if he wants to go IF the price is right. Barry may then have said that he would have to think about it, therefore, until Liverpool withdraw any offer then Barry has to believe that the MIGHT have a decision to make. As it is, MON is not selling for a miserly 10 or 12 million, or whatever it was. Right now we don't need to wory as Barry doesn't even need to make a decision, his word, not mine.

Aston Villa does not revolve around Gareth Barry!! Unfortunately he has begun to believe all the hype that has been written and spoken about him. There were 5 teams above us at the end of the season, none of which had gareth Barry playing for them. We have had great players leave and retire before and we always get over the loss and we will this time. I think MON should put him up for sale with a 18-20 million price tag on his head. If the scoucers stump up the cash then he can go it's as simple as that!!! If not i'm sure Chelski will, given that Lampard will be heading to Italy in the summer.

Whilst 30m would be nice it aint gonna happen. i think we have to hold out for at least 17-18m though. This is what hargreaves and carrick went for and Barry is easily on the same level if not higher. Will we re-invest properly though? O'neill will probably bring in 5 more spurs/west ham players for that.

Unfortunately it's looking like he will go now. 15M and not a penny less or Crouch + Riise + 4M. We just need to make sure that if we get cash - we spend all of it on a replacement player. Hokey Cokey will step up to the plate next season if GB goes.

I think if gerrard desperately needs to play with Gareth we should put in a bid for the bewildered gobs**t! 10 million cash up front would be suitable for a player who has failed to make any position his own for club or country. This utility man ( remember when that meant couldn't play properly in any position?) can fill in right or left, centre or wide midfield. With Stevie G on our bench we will need three less players than I think we do currently, even Rafa gets something he's desperate for...cash, then everyones happy.

All the club have to do is put a 30,000,000 price tag on his head and he stays. He may be un-happy about it but he stays, 2 years on his contract left to complete. Villa may not be paying him what Liverpool have offered but he should of thought about money when he extended his contract (Oh yea he did, I believe its customary for players to get a big fat signing on fee)

I imagine, given Barry's apparent standpoint, that the discussion will end up with a decision along the lines of the following:

Gareth will be allowed to depart from the club upon receipt of an offer that meets Aston Villa's valuation of the player. Failing this, we will retain his services until such an offer is received and accepted by the management.

If Gareth hands in a transfer request then we have a whole new situation. As things stand he hasn't, and I would be surprised if he did. After all, he continues to state that the thought of leaving Aston Villa is a difficult one. I don't know whether he will go or not, but I don't imagine that having the option take away would be as damaging to him as some make out.

Some of you seem to be saying 30 Million is too much and that it's not realistic? I mean HELLO!!!!!!! Have you been living in a box for the last 3 seasons?!!? 30 Million is a bargain. Football is not realistic, it's not even the real world! Get a grip, anything less than 20 Million is a joke. Gareth, wake up mate and smell the fumes of the Aston Expressway, this is where you belong.

Gareth, wake up mate and smell the fumes of the Aston Expressway, this is where you belong.

We all want a quick decision Gareth my boy - so make it. Announce to the world where your heart lies, and if it is up at Anfield, then get your pal Stevie to have a quiet one in Rafa's ear, suggesting he cough up the 20m or so that hopefully MON/RL are demanding.

You won't get to the CL if you sell your best player. MON and Randy lerner have to stand them. No selling.
