Great performance to follow up his vile exertions.

That result made up for the brentford draw.

Got to beat the millers now, and they are good at home.

Pure class tonight when he clicked into gear.

He's a rolls royce in that midfield. Oozes quality.

Looking back I cannot believe we persisted with Chris Brunt for so long

Still cant understand why its even attempted at any stage.

Barry is a class act, always been underrated throughout his career

One of many baffling decisions from our management team this season.

Barry was absolutely superb. Full of energy as well which just confirms that he needed a run of games to get into the swing of it. Head and shoulders above anyone else today.

Absolutely bossed it in the midfield, but baffled why Wigan never attempted to close him down or pressure him. My MOTM by some way today.

Superb. I didn’t want any of the taxi four to ever play again. Add to that the abuse Phillips took last season and now two of the taxi gate and Phillips are absolutely essential. In the end if a player performs he has all the power in the world. Bit like He-Man.

Barry was immense again today. He's been superb recently and gives us a much more balanced midfield.

I think the first time he's lasted 90 minutes this season, and shows that Darren Moore rates the performance he put in.

Not just our current management team but many before. Maybe offer some credit to Moore for relegating Brunt to fourth choice centre mid - no it’s easier to throw in the odd jibe at Moore isn’t it.

From memory he wasn't fully fit at the start of the season and then had to contend with the loss of his brother before a knock in training further delayed his availability. Glad to have him back in the line-up, he's looked very good since his return. Game time may need to be managed over the next few fixtures to keep him fresh once points are in the bag though. He was coolness personified yesterday.

I'm still not happy having him in the team following the taxi theft, but all I keep thinking when I see him do well is 'where the hell was this last season when we needed it?'.

Probably because he's in the last year of his deal, and wants another year.

Or because this league is way down on quality in comparison to the Premier League

Spot on.


Barry has been excellent since his return to the side... As was Morrison before him.

Probably that, tbh.

Whichever division we're in come the end of the season, we should shake hands and move on.

If Barry wants to continue his career it's in his interest to stay at this level as he looks a cut above. Even without the legs to get about he's able to dictate play. He was beginning to struggle in the prem hence why he came to us. On promotion it could be suggested he should be released (if we got promotion)

Player of the Month for December. Well deserved!

"It's always nice to be recognised for performances, and even better when the team is winning off the back of them."

Gareth Barry on being the @Coral Player of the Month, aiming to kickstart another unbeaten run and Norwich.

Why did it take 3 months approx for Barry to be a regular starter?
It's not good enough and one of the reasons we are no higher than 4th.

One of many questions I would have if I sat down with Darren, none of which he would provide satisfactory answers to.

Strange isn't it, about a year ago we wanted to call a taxi for him........

I thought he was class today, won every challenge until the 68th when he got turned by pukka pie, other than that, faultless. Just oozes class even though his legs are on the wane.

Why would you listen to his answers - your mind is made up already. So dull.
