Were they at Everton together ? if so they possibly know each other well
Unlikely that they are acquainted.

Yeah, smethdan pointed it out, didn't realise there was such a gap between the times and to be honest couldn't be bothered to look  :D

Let Barry cut his coaching teeth at Bodymoor Heath. Don't want him at the club.

Why? Taxigate?
I would love to know the backstory for that fiasco.
Apart from that episode he would seem to be a model professional.

Would only sign as a player. He's not retired yet.

Heard an interview with Gareth Barry on the radio either last season or the one before. I think it was on Talksh!te. When asked if he was doing his coaching badges or whether he'd considered staying in the game he said he'd never really thought that far ahead.

Unless he was trying to be cool while playing things down then given his age at the time and now I'd actually be quite surprised to hear he was overly arsed about it either way or the other. Being short of money would be one way of focusing the mind. But unless he's a secret addict of one sort or another or heading for a costly divorce I think some sort of lower level supporting role in the media may be on his horizon.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Was ALWAYS going to happen. It's no shock at all. Feels unnecessary but he was decent last season.

Sensible to me and staggered people see it as a negative. He was many times excellent last season and I maintain had he been available for the play offs we may have seen off villa at villa park in the first leg

Shrewd business having such an experienced head amongst the ranks on a deal that suits us. People forget that for a good couple of months last season he was absolutely superb.

At 38, I would still have him in the midfield ahead of Livermore and Brunt.

Absolutely people forgetting his form going into Christmas he was probably the best player at the club for a good 2 months ran the away game against Sheffield United. Be a good back up for Sawyers and i’d argue a better option than Livermore for when we play the teams that will turn up and put 10 men behind the ball and take a point.

With a proper manager and system, with some actual organisation at last, I feel he would excel for us.

Imagine his range of passing in there next to Sawyers with our pacey wingers making runs.

Great news - be great for the younger players to have around - he will also be a perfect squad player, play in the games that suit him.

Pleased with this

As you say it would be far easier for Barry with these players around him than he found last season he can let the young uns do his running for him.

Barry is a one game a week max player, he will be used as a squad player or to use his nous to see games out IMO.

Spot on the perfect player to bring on for the last 20 minutes where we are under the cosh such as  how the game at Forest finished.

When the alternative is wedging your mate Chris into the centre of midfield, I will take it all day long.

The fact that so many people still have Livermore starting is a real concern.
For me a holding mid has to have 3 main qualities:

Be able to tackle
Receive and hold the ball
Pick a pass

Livermore is 0/3, for me,  so fully understand the return of Barry. Will hopefully be good for Sawyers also.
