Gareth Barry Gets Late England Call

Gareth Barry Gets Late England Call

Gareth Barry has been given a late call up to the England squad after Gary Neville was forced to withdraw after picking up an ankle injury playing in Everton's 4-1 win over Bolton at the weekend.

Barry might now get a chance to add to his nine caps in the Euro 2008 qualifiers against Israel and Andorra as Ashley Cole is suspended and Wayne Bridge is also out. Still, no doubt knowing Steve McClaren Jamie Carragher will be played at left-back instead!

Delighted for Barry, should be a squad regular. However its pretty obvious that Cara will get the nod. But, seeing as we are playing Israel and Andorra, England's defence should be able to handle the other teams offensive play, therefore what Barry lacks in defensive quality (which isn’t much due to his legendry status) he should be more than able to help Gerrard attack the left flank. Fingers crossed, hopefully we'll get to see Barry shine in an England shirt.

I've said this before in jest, but I am deadly serious now... if I was Gareth Barry I would tell Steve Mclaren to stick his call up up his arse!

At least he's now in the 23 man squad; and he throughly deserves it.

Yep have to agree with my namesake (but I have a full stop between deano and villa!!) Barry should tell McClaren to shove it. If he isnt even considered 3rd choice left back!! - Im all for playing players in club positions - but P. Neville has played midfield all year. At least Barry has played there this season!!

Oh and for what its worth as an outsider looking in (N. Ireland fan) my first XI for England assuming all players fit would be unlike the England team picked by the England coaching staff: Robinson - G.Neville Terry Ferdinand Bridge - Lennon Gerrard Huddlestone Barry - Rooney Ashton. SUBS - Foster, Carragher, Hargreaves, Lampard, Owen. But then I suppose thats why I am a teacher and not an England manager!!

It is now to early (or to late depending on how you view it) to start the McMuppet out campaign. He really is the most uninspiring manager England have ever had the misfortune to have. Somebody at the FA should be held accountable. And don't get me started on Paul Robinson, possibly the worst keeper in the Premier League. If Barry can't get in on the left, I believe that he has a chance of doing a better job than Robinson between the sticks.

Christo are you DOL in disguise or his PR manager? Either that or your medication needs sorting out.
