😂 I guess that's what you get when using your phone in work, But also if Field can get out on loan too it also helps
Originally I was dead against, but after reading Everton fans' comments, and the fact that it is a 1+1 year deal, I can now understand it. Hampshire, you have a good point too about giving the youngsters another year to develop + he is a model professional and will be a good role model. Better than Fletcher too, so overall I think this is a good signing.

I'll be sad to see him go he's real quality and to be honest I wouldn't let him go as we still need him especially in Europe but I'd imagine he wants more football, he's a better player than Darren Fletcher I think.

Should make us better on the ball. Midfield of Barry holding with Livermore and another (delph?) would be perfect imo. Get a top winger in snd would be a good season ahead!

There only saying what most Albion fans are saying. Let's replace a 33 year old with a 36 year old. Makes perfect sense :o

The post by HammerCricket is probably the only one to take note of on there thus far.

His pace shouldn't be an issue as it isn't an issue for Yacob as he will not be high enough up the pitch, nor will we as a team, for it to be a problem. His role will be picking the passes for the pacey wingers to exploit space created by soaking up the pressure

I once played five aside against a 50 year old Chris Waddle in my late teens (don't ask, I'm still not sure how this happened he was just there on the other team in one of those Goals! leagues) and he did this. Barely left the centre circle and just sprayed passes around. Single handedly battered my team.

The only contract length that's been reported is a 1 year deal with the potential for another year presumably if he does well and/or stays fit. If he does do well why wouldn't we offer him another year?

just found this from Squawka

From the Liverpool Echo.

Gareth Barry to leave Everton armed with the admiration of everyone

And why Ronald Koeman may need to find a replacement
BY PHIL KIRKBRIDE
11:25, 15 AUG 2017UPDATED11:26, 15 AUG 2017

Ronald Koeman has reluctantly agreed to sell one of the best players he has ever managed.

That’s not speculation or conjecture, it’s what the Everton boss said.


It was in the hours after the Blues’ 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion in August last year when Barry was the surprise match-winner, popping up at the back post to head home the winning goal, and put the icing on a typically pristine display.

“...he’s still one of the best players that I have managed in my teams because of the cleverness of him in football is really a high quality,” Koeman said.


The manager’s admiration for the 36-year-old has not slipped, even if Barry has fallen down the pecking order at Goodison since that afternoon at the Hawthorns, and it’s exactly he was at first reticent, but ultimately agreed, to let him go.

Barry, to his eternal credit, does not want to spend the final years of his career as a bit-part player and so wanted to take up an opportunity to be first-choice under Tony Pulis at West Brom.

Evertonians will be disappointed to see him go but no-one will begrudge him the move; they may even applaud his desire.

They know he’ll be superb for the Baggies, just like he has been for Everton over four seasons and 155 games.

This is the strongest Everton squad I've known says Gareth Barry
A quiet but classy operator, Barry instantly commanded the respect of his team-mates and steadily won over sceptical elements of the Blues’ support.

Roberto Martinez didn’t always get it right in the transfer market but landing Barry, first on loan and then permanently for a nominal fee, was one the club’s shrewdest pieces of business in recent times.

Gareth Barry celebrates scoring his side's winning goal against West Brom at The Hawthorns on August 20, 2016
The former Manchester City man isn’t flashy, he’s not quick, he doesn’t score many goals or skip past the opposition but his range of passing is extensive, his understanding of the game is total and his speed of thought is what ties it all together.

He’s also got bottle, highlighted by the fact that during Martinez’s final season, which unravelled at speed, he emerged with credit, being named the club’s Player of the Year and the Players’ Player of the Year awards.

This is the truth about those Gareth Barry exit rumours
All wrapped up in an immaculate sense of professionalism, the veteran midfielder will be missed at Everton, so much so that when his move to West Brom is complete, possibly today, they are left without a natural back-up to Morgan Schneiderlin – it may force Koeman into a revision of his remaining transfer plans.

His wish-list should now read: ‘Gylfi Sigurdsson, a striker, a left-sided defender....and a replacement for Barry’.

On Saturday afternoon, Koeman spoke about being “happy” to keep him, there has even been talks about the offer of a new deal, but hinted that he would allow this “great professional” to leave in search for regular game-time if he so wished.


He does. And today Barry is edging closer to a move to West Brom, the place where Koeman delivered the fullest of praise possibly available to him.

Barry’s Everton team-mates would all concur with their manager and so let’s leave it to Leighton Baines to provide a fitting final word on a player they call Gaz Baz.

“He is the biggest example of a standard setter in that respect,” he said, last season. “I have got so, so much respect for him.

"He is one of the best players I have ever played with because he’s unbelievable.”

Not exactly the player I wanted but will give him a chance - surely he is a better passer of the ball than Fletcher whilst maintaining all the other qualities he had.

Still hope there is another CM incoming.

Aye no need to be so bitey, just saying players with 'no legs' offer more than just the ability to run around. Tether Barry to a post in the centre circle and he can still contribute.

The point is everyone is saying what his manager, fans and press are stating which is actually the same as what was said about John Terry. He played 14 times for Chelsea and still scored the same amount of goals as Barry. Plus during that season he missed a lot of games though injury and suspension.

Still a good player , great passer of the ball but like Fletch its a short term fix where we sit and wait for the signs of age to show.
