of Everton have been gushing over the club’s former midfielder, and current man, Gareth Barry.

On evening, the Athletic reporter Greg O’Keeffe shared an article in which he discussed the 38-year-old Englishman (per Greg O’Keeffe), which led many to gush over their former player.

Would you take a prime Gareth Barry back at Goodison Park over any of the current midfielders?

Yes, he was quality in his prime

During his time with the Toffees, Barry featured in 1 games over a four-season stint in Merseyside, during which he scored five and assisted 12 goals (per Transfermarkt).

This season, at 38 years of age, the midfielder has featured in five games in all competitions for the Baggies (per Transfermarkt) and many fans were keen to continue to gush over him.

What do we think?

To still be playing professional as a 38-year-old and being an outfield player, is a great testament to Barry and his style of play.

While his performances are becoming few and far between under Slaven Bilic, it is good to see that so many Everton fans still hold their former player in a positive regard.
