A fabulous pro and a great servant for our club. Deservedly went on to win a premiership title to add to a brilliant career

Only sullied his career by moving to the bitters - but one day I may forgive him  ;)

Did they ask why he didn't take the penalty?

When he finally got a chance in midfield for England he brought the balance to that midfield we had been looking for.

The trouble was Lampard and Stevie Me played the same role for England and both wanted to be the driver in midfield and just could not play together. Barry brought a left foot balance and someone who could sit and play from the back without wanting to drive through and score. The only thing that let him down was his pace really. How close were we really in getting Lampard and Barry together at Villa. I'm sure there was rumours when he left West Ham although they could have been Doug's Season Ticket boosting non deals.

Fromm BBC sport.

Gareth Barry's impending return to West Bromwich Albion has suffered a setback over a clause in his previous contract with former club Everton.

The ex-England midfielder, 38, was a free agent when he was released by Albion in June after his contract at The Hawthorns expired.

Albion then said that they might like to offer him a new deal after all - but Everton would be due a further payment.

"It's frustrating for us and for him," head coach Slaven Bilic told BBC WM.

"We had a meeting yesterday. The deal is agreed with him but we have that situation with Everton.

"There is a little clause. I spoke to the board and we are doing everything we can.

"He would be a major boost for us and one that comes from within too. He already knows the place and most of the players.

"We have a lot of young players. At times they need the kind of support that he can bring."
