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

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.
