Gareth Barry - Heartbeat Of Villa
Martin O'Neill has spoken about how pivotal Villa captain Gareth Barry is comparing him to Chelsea's (Fat) Frank Lampard and Liverpool's (disappears for half a game) Steven Gerrard. Pah, ours is much better, he gives 100% game in and game out!
O'Neill told avfc.com: 'There were some big performances. I thought there were a number of great performances, but Gareth Barry was absolutely outstanding. I know he could play a number of positions, and I'm talking big now, but his performance on Saturday was up with those boys who play or England. It was up with Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard - it was that special.'
'He's the heartbeat of this football club. Heartbeat is the operative word - he's got fantastic heart, but he's got great ability and that showed on Saturday. I just thought it was an immense performance.'
And to think the Spurs fans keep harping on about signing him in the summer. HA, get real, Barry will be going nowhere, maybe we could send them Djemba Djemba instead!
