Majority Would Welcome Barry Back

Majority Would Welcome Barry Back

Looks like the majority of Villa fans are a forgiving lot according to our poll results!

We asked, in a poll suggested by johnmurphy3112,

Should Gareth Barry not move away from Villa, would you accept him back?

59% voted: Yes, he is quality and will still do a good job.

Another 8% would take him back as the captain and 1% said keep him until January and then sell.

That left 4% unsure and a not inconsiderable 28% who voted 'No, he has burnt his bridges'.

Our latest poll, suggested by los_angeles_villan asks for your predictions for this weekends Odense game.

I hope Barry reads this, it shows that the majority of us would have him back, this may help he decide whether to come and publicly apologise or keep listening to his agent and demand he allowed to leave. Still hasnt handed in the transfer request, suggests he isnt all that desperate to leave.

Agree Y-J, shows the faith the fans have in him, whether he has been badly advised agent wise or not. He has a role at THIS club.

pressed submit too quickly, meant to say he has a role at this club and should feel proud of that fact.

Makes you wonder if he does know what fans think, Im sure those who dont want him back will one way or another let barry know about it. I hope he stays and we can carry on signing the sort of quality were after like bentley , looks like liverscum have screwed barry over tho

Barry knows that, he knows he can still be a big part of the team, all this rubbish that Barry is desperate to leave is a load of toss, how can he suddenly go from being our proud captain to being desperate to leave? The papers have got a few on here believing he will go, and perhaps he will. But so far he hasnt left, and unless he does he will still be at Villa next season, and if MON is stupid enough to allow our best player rot in the reserves, then we will have no chance of convincing him to stay even if we do make 4th. Barry is not as unhappy at Villa as most would lead us to believe, how can he be? He has been so important to the club for such a long time, he may want to leave, but I still think he would be happy to stay if the deal dont go through. Barry is a professional and one silly interview in a red top will never change that. Barry 4 Villa.

Only the word 'welcome' give me pause for thought. Most fans are pragmatists and would certainly 'accept' Barry back, with reservations as to his attitude and willingness to 'die for the shirt'. The 'welcome' might take a little longer ...

Hmm. You certainly know how to stick to your guns, YJ. Personally, I believe Barry's head was turned and the only thing that is stopping him from proving you wrong is LFC's inability or unwillingness to scrape the cash together. Had they done so, Gareth Barry would have been up the M6 like a shot, believe me.

he acted like a tw4t but like Dwain Chambers, we'd all like to see him at the Olympics. I wouldnt care if we signed Bellamy who I personally hate as long as he guaranteed us 20 goals a season!

While I partly agree with what you say YJ, No one at VP held Barry's arm up his back while he wrote his press release. So if he does stay he will have to apologise to the club and the fans if he wants to be accepted back into the fold. Like I said in a prvious post, loyalty only exists while you remain loyal. I liken Barry's situation to a married man/woman having a breif fling, while it can be forgiven because of loyalty, it also needs to punished, explained and forgiven which could take a while! Barry must take some reponsibility for this fiasco!
