    Barry to the REDS

    Let him go!!! He has lost his heart for Villa a long time ago... No point sticking to a player who will only give wrong passes or not even give his best anymore... Let alone the CAPTAIN!

    Just make the reds pay, and pay A LOT they will... What's 15, 30 or even 45 million pounds to the reds, when they can re-coup that amount by winning the champions league or even the top 4? Make them pay a world record for our captain and we wish them all the best - they'll need it.

    • There's no doubt that Barry had a great season and performed well but there's no guarentee that he'll slip easily into the Liverpool line up. Martin O'Neil is a great manager and one that has ambitions for Villa plus greater funds available to him than perhaps Liverpool. If Barry thinks that going theere will bring more success, I think he might be mistaken. Villa in my opinion have just about as much chances of winning the league at Liverpool(none) and it's probably just a case of Barry wanting to play in Europe. Let him go with grace and let him regret it for moving to another losing club.

    • I'm sure Barry would not give wrong passes etc, as you say simply because he didn't get his mone.......I'll miss him but wish him all the best,plus laugh when he out shines 90% of the team and most Liverpool fans don't think they need him!

      • Kip, seems to me, that Barry is a very professional footballer, so doubt he'd play below perfomance just out of protest of not getting the move he wants. I'm still not sold on if we need him or not. Not because I don't rate the player, I do rate him, but I'm not sure that he's an improvement over Alonso, who is likely to leave if or when Barry comes in. However, there is no denying when you see them playing for England, that Gerrard and Barry have a very good understanding, so it not a question of matching up a couple players and comparing them as individuals, but more fitting them into a system, and asking does the system oveall improve. Therefore I doubt Barry will outshine 90% of the team (remember that means he's going to have to outshine players like Torres, Gerrard, and Mascherano), but do think he may strengthen the overall squad.

      jesus nige the girl could turn me blue

    • NO KIPPER YOU GO TO FAR..

      that just means they can rampage around nicking players with no penalty

      have tried to stay calm, but its harder than quitting smoking (5 1/2 months now)

      good luck gareth in everything that you do ..except wearing a liverpool shirt,,

    • She did me Mike, but she's an older women now...that was Blackpool Pier 1982...t*t measuring contest. Lizzie must be............49 now.....maybe 50.Pleasant mamories,... sorry memories though.!!


      Everything goes South eventually they say !

    • Barry will go and it will hit the team hard.

      The sad thing is the irony of it all. Barry deserves to be playing in Europe regularly and Villa can't offer him that. He'll be willing to go to Liverpool on the cheap because that is where he has to be to be able to play in Europe.
      So Villa never really had a hope of keeping him. If Villa want to buy a player anything like as good as Barry, we have to pay over the odds because we can't currently offer the players European football.

      I think the only satisfaction we may have is that if Barry continues to play as well as he is at the moment, Liverpool won't be able to keep him either.

      For some reason I also think that it won't work for him at Anfield anyway. Seeing him play alongside Gerrard for England it seems like a dream pairing, but I have a niggling feeling that it won't work at club level.

      Whatever - thanks to Gareth for the 100% he has always given the club, and also for the way he's handled this transfer talk without any bad comments about the bos or the club. Very rare to see this sort of decency in a modern player.

      • Villa turned down 15 million today,but he will go anyway.

        Good luck and thanks to Barry.

        Liverpool haven't played the transfer game by the rules but then,most clubs don't these days but get shirty when it's done to them i.e.Ronaldo with Man U and Madrid.

        For heavens sake though, we have to start spending some money soon!

        OK you have to be a bit prudent but only successful clubs make money and you have to spend to get success. It's getting a bit frustrating now.

        If we don't spend soon we will look like a bigger tit than Nig's (Tilton) bird in his pic!

    • That will suit me just fine, I hear that there's a spaniard called Alonso available perhaps you should keep him?

    • at least the villa fans haven't started issuing death threats even if they are about to lose one of their best players.

    • But what is Villa valuing the player at, and by what justification? I've heard on here estimates of 18 Million to be in line with Carrick, or as low as 16 M (some much higher, but think 30 Million is not quite realistic!). If this is accurate, why so offended at a bid for 15 Million. If you were selling you house do you really expect potential buyers to offer the asking price on their first offer? If you do, think you might of under valued your house, or don't understand how negotiation is supposed to work.
