The Liverpool Daily Post say that Gareth Barry will be kept waiting on his 'dream move' to Anfield because Liverpool are set to tell Martin O'Neill to 'get real' over the valuation. Err, haven't Liverpool just turned down a £9 - £10million bid for Peter Crouch? Get real! Apparently O'Neill is now refusing to deal with the Anfield outfit and has left contact to Villa director Paul Faulkner. O'Neill says his valuation is similar to the £18million Liverpool paid last summer for Javier but Tom-Jones-Mini-Me Benitez doesn't agree due to the age difference. Yawn.
The Daily Post goes on to say: For the first time, Liverpool have admitted that they fear that the stalemate could last much longer than they’d hoped unless a compromise can be reached and Barry now faces the prospect of having to report for the start of Villa’s pre-season training at Bodymoor Heath.
Shudders. What a terrible prospect to have to turn up to one of the best training facilities in the world to train for one of the true bastions of world football. I could go on a ramble now reminding those ignorant to Villa that it was our very own William McGregor who founded the league and set the template for what followed but I won't as all you get is the same old 'my club is bigger than your club' rubbish back!
I was arguing the toss with a reporter yesterday, he was saying that Barry would definitely go now he has said he wants to leave, I disagreed and said he'll only go if Liverpool pay the price that Villa want. Randy Lerner and Martin O'Neill are not the sort to be bullied into doing something they don't want to and they have the best interests of Villa closest to their hearts.
Oh and some berk called Jonathan Fear was quoted on Sky Sports News yesterday as saying if he or anyone else leaves, things will carry on as 'no player is bigger than the club'. That reminds me, I forgot to ask for my £25 000 fee. Damn.
