We are being linked with Gareth Barry and it's been said that he would prefer a move to us rather than Liverpool.
My take? Prove it. I'd like to hear it from the player himself. I thought he was desperate for a move to Anfield.
Anyway, I've often wondered whether Gareth Barry would improve Arsenal. There is no doubt that he is a good player, who importantly, has Premiership and international experience.
What sways me more to the fact he would improve Arsenal is that Fabio Capello puts his trust in Gareth Barry when selecting his England side. Capello is no mug, and if he believes in Barry, then so do I.
And I believe in a thing called love, just listen to the rhythm of my heart..............
Arsene Wenger often uses the excuse that signing someone like Barry would 'kill' a player like Song or Denilson. I beg to differ. Barry is no mass murderer. As far as I know anyway. But then its always the quietest ones that surprise you..............
Players like Song and Denilson would learn from someone like Barry. It would improve them. Not only that, it would give everyone at the club a lift and it shows a statement of intent to the rest of the Premiership.
It would also give some reassurance to Gooners. We need to see the club make these kind of signings. It feels good. Almost like making love.
Look at Andrei Arshavin. He has been superb for us and his arrival lifted the club into space.
Would Barry be a good partner for Cesc Fabegas? I'd say yes. It would create a good balance in the middle of the park. Because Barry is left footed. And clever
I always wanted Arsenal to sign Xabi Alonso, who I believe is the best passer of the ball in the world. It looks likely he will either stay at Liverpool or sign for Real Madrid.
Barry is the next option. We need to get in there now before Alonso's career is sorted out. Get in early.
Gareth Barry has one year left on his contract and now would be a good time to make a move.
Keep it Goonerish.......
