By Paul Brown American Football fan Ciaran Clark is eager to 'sack' Gareth Barry on Sunday. Clark, who was an avid watcher of the Superbowl between the Giants and the Patriots, sees similarities between Barry's role at Manchester City and the influential quarter-back position in the popular USA sport. Clark is a firm admirer of the way most of the championship-chasing team's best attacks are sparked by the diligence of former claret and blue captain Barry.
