Gareth Barry Calls For Vocal Home Support
Gareth Barry has told The Birmingham Mail he is glad to see the club taking the right direction now it has new owners and says some of the results this season has reflected what is going on off the pitch.
Adding, 'I’ve been here 12 years and I think we all realise that something can be achieved here. It could be the best since I have been here.'
He also calls for the Villa Park crowd to back the team after recent frustrations at the home form have led to some booing from a section of the crowd.
He is looking to put aside the poor run and get a run of home wins up to the end of the season with Villa still having to face Everton, West Ham, Hull City and Newcastle at Villa Park. (Away we have Manchester United, Bolton, Fulham and Middlesbrough)
Well, he actually says 'four or five home victories' but with just four games to play, I'd say a fifth win might be on the tough side, still it is a funny old game!
Importantly he says the 12th man has a part to play admitting the natives have been restless due to the home form not reflecting the away games this season adding,
'I think that they realise this is the time when it matters and if they are loud and cheering us on that can give us that extra yard and help us push even further. They can be vital for the team.'
