Yeah, a very good player. I had doubts when we signed him but he was top class tbf. But I think it helped having people like McCarthy first off, then Gueye, alongside him who both had good engines and got about the midfield

A very underrated player.
I’d be interested to read the article Greg. No disrespect, but I’m not paying when there’s so much free information out there.

Would you take a prime Gareth Barry back at Goodison Park over any of the current midfielders?
Yes, he was quality in his prime
No, we have better than that now
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.
Would still take the original Gareth Barry ??

We replaced him with Schneiderlin, polar opposites.

What do we think?
To still be playing professional football 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.
