Its bizarre, Barry is very average in all areas, he's not defensively better, unless you are talking about the fact that he can actually PLAY in defence!
Carrick is THE best English passer of the ball, I can't understand why an Italian of all people doesn't have him in there, but thats England for you, and United will ALWAYS be greater than England.
dont get me wrong legend, i love carrick, he is the best passer without doubt, but capello licks lampard and gerrards bum because of who they are and he seems to like barry as he is more defensive minded,
Carrick is a better player than Barry. But playing at MU along with the big names he gets lost in the crowd of talent and his contributions are not appreciated as they should be. Barry at Villa was the central figure and that kept him in the foreground.
But Barry does deserve his place in the squad. Carrick is simply unlucky not to play. But how does one explain Beckham still playing for England?

good post outlaws and nice to see a rival fan seeing the bigger picture, carrick on his day would unlock an italian or spanish defence (save barca in may lol), whereas barry does more of the closing down, they are different players in the work they do, but for me carrick edges it on talent, barry on workrate.
