Gareth Barry

Recommended Posts

Gana, Schneiderlin, McCarthy, Davies, Klaassen, Besic. I also suspect someone like Baningime may be around the squad at some point this season.

 

Now I'm a big fan of Barry but I think we've got adequate cover there. I suspect the move was as much about Koeman's respect for Barry as much as anything else. I don't actually think we need further cover in the deeper midfield role. Fletcher is an excellent signing for Stoke - I don't think he would have added anything here on the pitch.

Only Schneiderlin plays in the sitting role, and for me Barry should start over him unless the opposition is full of pacey players.

 

Best preformed last season was with Barry and Davies in the middle against City. Koeman's midfielder preferences worry me. Doesn't seem to value intelligence. Romeu, Wanyama, and Gueye lack football brains.

 

Fletcher was head and shoulders above our two last week. Breaks up play and gets the ball forward. On top of that he's a leader/winner. I'm not looking forward to watching Schneiderlin and Gana all season.

I'm not impressed with Koeman. Barry had Schneiderlin beat for everything bar pace. Big loss on and off the pitch.

 

Why's he going after the season starts and no replacement brought in already. Fletcher would have been a perfect stop gap on a free. The feck is Walsh getting paid for?

 

He was offered a new contract and wanted to go. Out of respect for who he is and what he's done for us we granted his wish. You're creating a problem out of nothing.

Its the perfect time for Barry to say goodbye - he probably has one last season in him as a regular and that wasn't going to be with us given our squad.

 

Schneiderlin is a better option without doubt - that is not to say Barry isn't worth a place in our squad, he is but he deserves to play football and we are strong enough to let him go.

 

simple as that really.

I understand why the club let him go, but don't see why the manager didn't make me out an effort and reassure him he'd be more than a back up. You only have to look at Schneiderlin's performance last week to see there is still a place for Barry.

Never had a problem with you before pete0 but for fucks sake why would Koeman offer you more than the dog shit off his brother's shoes?

If a player with his experience leaves the club in that fashion it indicates there is something about the set up that smells to high heaven.

Yeah, it has absolutely nothing to do with older players naturally playing less games as younger players come in. It definitely means that training at Finch Farm is more akin to being in a concentration camp.

More to do with the manager picking lesser players in front of him.

One of the best "dirty work" types that generally go unnoticed or you don't appreciate what they do until you see them play week in week out the Premier League era has had,  optimises professionalism and a great player one of my favourites in recent years tbh 

Hope he carries on to play many more games

How can you be too pissed to get served in McDonalds? But if he was pissed and then drove (stealing the cab aside) he needs to be prosecuted big time, no excuse.

Why were they in Barcelona? Trying to convince Messi to join West Brom? Maybe it was his response that drove them to drink.

The same reason our team are in Dubai I imagine - no cup game this weekend, so away on a training trip in warmer weather.
