Majority Say Play Gareth Barry In Midfield

Majority Say Play Gareth Barry In Midfield

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Villan444:

What should MON do with Gareth Barry?

71% said the England international should be played in midfield/attacking.

23% wanted to see him sold in January following his 'outburst' about being moved to left back.

See: Gareth Barry - Not Moaning But Not That Happy? and MON's response: O'Neill 'Players Play Wherever I Put Them'

2% voted to fine him for talking to the media and another 2% were unsure.

That left 1% wanting him fined and then sold and another 1% kept as a wing/left back.

Its been said so many times before, by a lot better experts than I ever will be, that Gareth's talents are wasted if he's not used in mid-field, and I make no excuses for repeating those comments right now, and agreeing with them 100%.

It was a strange decision by Saint Mart to play GB at the back in place of Shorey, but MON obviously had his reasons. Hope its not repeated too often though.
