Would You Accept Barry If His Move Collapses?

Would You Accept Barry If His Move Collapses?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by romanianvillain,

Will David Bentley be at Villa Park next season?

According to the press today NO as they are saying Blackburn and Spurs have agreed a £17million fee involving Paul Robinson. It remains to be seen if Villa also go for him or not!

51% voted No, 28% yes, 18% unsure and 3% totally unbothered.

Our latest poll, suggested by johnmurphy3112 is slightly more contentious and asks if the Gareth Barry move doesn't happen, would you accept him back? For me it is a big yes, why not? Sidwell and Barry in the centre, Young one side, Bentley or Milner the other. Sounds like a good midfield to me, especially with Petrov as back up!

It would be a fantastic midfield if Barry stays, I would welcome him "back" to Villa Park in time for next season. Let's just get him in training and fighting to regain our respect.

I'd welcome him back too....but he'd have to eat a MASSIVE slice of humble pie, and apologise to both his manager, and the fans - both of whom I think have been let down badly by his attitude and comments in recent weeks....

I would take him back, he is a good player and although he has done this very badly am sure an apology will go a long way with a fans including myself, after all its aonly like going for a promotion you dont get. I think his captaincy should go elsehwere though.

Only if he shows his commitment by signing a 2 year contract extension, then we know he wants to be here!

Yep, agree with all the comments made. I'd take him back too as I do wonder whether he's been badly advised by his agent as much as anything. He's still a fantastic player and if we can improve the rest of the squad why shouldn't he be playing Champions League football next year in a claret and blue shirt. On the Liverpool front I so want them to go out in the qualifying rounds!

I'm afraid the damage is done. I'd have liked to see a Barry/Sidwell midfield but, it would take a massive pr circus to forgive GB. One that I'm pretty sure Alex Black is not capable of. I think you would always question GB's future loyalty and at every window we'd be expecting him to go. Time to move on. Hope Arsenal romours are true. I'd like to see GB go anywhere but liverpool.

As is usually the case, the options on the poll are fairly black and white. It doesn't say anything about him grovelling to the manager and supporters and issuing a formal apology for the way he's thrown everything back in our faces before being allowed to play again. And i'd like to know who the 13% are who think 'he is still our captain fantastic'. Have you been living in a small box, locked in a cellar somewhere in Austria for the last 3 months???? Get a grip.

farmer_dan, i think GB has already proved contracts don't mean that much to him. Apart from any loyalty bonus that may be gained.

Can I add that the loyalty bonus he would probably get NEEDS to be hand delivered staright to Acorns by Barry himself. There is no way he deserves it even it he stays...
