Everton's poor home form worries Martinez
Yahoo News - about 1 year
(Reuters) - Everton manager Roberto Martinez conceded he is worried with his team's poor home form after the Toffees slumped to their fifth loss at Goodison Park this campaign in Sunday's 2-1 Premier League defeat by Swansea City. Gareth Barry's deflected effort was cancelled out by Gylfi Sigurdsson's opener from the penalty spot, but the relegation-threatened Swans clinched the three points thanks to a 34th minute strike from winger Andre Ayew. The Merseyside club have managed three wins from their 12 league games at home and only bottom side Aston Villa, who have one win in 11 at Vila Park, have a worse home record in the league.

Everton's Baines out for up to six weeks with broken toe
Yahoo News - about 3 years
Everton defender Leighton Baines could be out of action for up to six weeks with a broken toe, the Premier League club announced Tuesday. An X-ray on his right foot revealed the injury but Everton medical staff cannot, as yet, put a precise timescale on his recovery, with Baines set to be out of action for anything from 10 days up to six weeks. "It has been confirmed that Leighton has got a fracture in one of the bones in his right foot, which is the phalange," Everton manager Roberto Martinez told the club's website. Gareth Barry filled in for Baines last weekend, having played at left-back earlier in his career, but Everton would be wary of removing him from central midfield, where he has been a key figure for the Toffees.

Stock Futures Fall After Japan Curbs Stimulus
The Street - over 3 years
NEW YORK (TheStreet) --- Stock futures were pointing to a lower open on Wall Street, signaling that the S&P 500 would slip for a second day as Treasury yields spiked and the Bank of Japan stopped short of increasing its stimulus program, disappointing investors eager for more action to stabilize global bond markets. "A minority of investors had positioned in advance for an expansion of the bond purchase program but this did not materialize -- it seems there will be no enhanced BoJ support for equities for now at least, despite ongoing volatility," Gareth Berry, a foreign-exchange strategist at UBS in Singapore, wrote in a note. Futures for the S&P 500 were falling 15.75 points, or 15.66 points below fair value, to 1,626.25. ... Click to view a price quote on ^DJI.

Soccer Showdown at Yankee Stadium
Bronx News - over 3 years
By Howard Goldin BRONX, NEW YORK, MAY 26-Two of the major powers of the English Premier League, Chelsea FC and Manchester City FC, clashed on the pitch of Yankee Stadium on Saturday evening. The teams have met many times in their more than 100 years of history. Their latest encounter before Saturday’s game was two days earlier at a sold-out Busch Stadium in St. Louis. In that exciting meeting, Manchester City came back from a 3-0 deficit to capture the friendly by a 4-3 margin. Neither world-renowned football club is a stranger to the New York area. City faced the Red Bulls in 2010. Chelsea participated in the first soccer match at the current Yankee Stadium last year, when they defeated PSG (Paris Saint Germain). Earlier in the week, a partnership between Manchester City and the Yankees was announced.

Mancini bemoans concentration lapse
IOL - over 4 years
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini was far from happy despite seeing the English champions beat QPR. ||| London – Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini was far from happy despite seeing the English champions mark his 100th Premier League match in charge with a 3-1 win at home to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. Goals from Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez at Eastlands saw City remain unbeaten so far in the defence of their title. But when Bobby Zamora equalised for the west London club it created an air of anxiety around Eastlands, although it did not take long for Dzeko to head City back in front, adding to Yaya Toure's opener, before an injury-time deflected effort from Tevez sealed victory. “We have one problem at the moment, when we have a chance to score we don't score and after this the game can change,” said Mancini. The Italian added: “We had this problem in our first game. We had a problem against Liverpool, it is a problem and when you have a chance ...

England v Italy: We can learn from the Olympics - Hodgson
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
England coach Roy Hodgson has claimed it is not just football players who have been given a wake-up call by the Olympics extravaganza – the fans have too. Hodgson noted the different atmosphere he encountered at the Community Shield on Sunday with the joyous scenes in the Olympic Park over the past fortnight. So, whilst he does accept there are lessons to be learned on the pitch, where “a benchmark has been set”, he does not believe players are the only ones who should be judged. “A benchmark has been set and we must accept that in football, cricket, rugby and the other major team sports we will be under a little bit more of the spotlight,” he said. “But I wouldn’t mind the spotlight also being focused on the crowd. “What made the Olympics was the incredible support the athletes got and the tremendous behaviour of the spectators. “Performing at the Olympic Stadium, with 80,000 people supporting you is a bit different to being away from home in an English stadium with quite a few ...

Euro 2012: Henderson ready to fill England role
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Jordan Henderson today declared himself ready to be thrust into the thick of England’s European Championship campaign if Roy Hodgson’s worst fears about his central midfield are realised. Hodgson admitted on Monday he was not certain Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker could continue to play every four days in Poland and Ukraine. That could see Henderson thrown in at the deep end in either Friday’s second Group D game against Sweden or Tuesday’s final match against Ukraine. The Liverpool midfielder, who replaced Parker for the final 13 minutes of Monday’s opening 1-1 draw with France, said: “I will be ready if I am needed.” However, Henderson played down the prospect of that occurring any time soon, having watched Gerrard and Parker in close quarters on Monday. “Steve and Scotty did very well in there,” said the 21-year-old, who earned his fourth cap in Donetsk. “I think they’re both fit enough to last the full game but I was delighted to get on for the last 15 minutes. “I had to tr ...

Euro 2012: Rio saga could haunt Hodgson - Matteo
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
As England coach, it’s Roy Hodgson’s right to select or drop players as he sees fit. It’s not for journalists or ex-footballers to tell him how to do his job. If he doesn’t want to take Rio Ferdinand to the European Championships, or if he doesn’t feel it’s in the squad’s best interests to have Ferdinand there, then that’s up to him. But he must have known that using “footballing reasons” as an excuse for leaving Ferdinand out would spark a huge debate and ask more questions than it answered. Rio’s not the spring chicken he was when we played together at Leeds United but he’s still a top-class defender. Whether he’s better than John Terry is a different argument altogether but as English centre-backs go, the pair of them are in the top two. So if Hodgson’s squad is a collection of the best players available to England, Ferdinand goes to the Euros. That’s the bottom line. It’s not that he should automatically start or play in every game, but he deserves to be involved. Like a lot o ...

He scored again for Villa as they beat Ajax 2–1 in their first UEFA Cup group match on 23 October 2008. Due to the transfer saga, O'Neill had taken the captaincy away from Barry and handed it to centre-back Martin Laursen for the 2008–09 season. Following Laursen's injury, the captaincy was restored to Barry in January 2009. In total, Gareth Barry made 441 appearances for Aston Villa, scoring 52 goals in the process. On 2 June 2009, Barry signed a five-year contract with Manchester City for a fee of £12 million and wore the number 18 shirt. Many Aston Villa fans publicly criticised Barry for this move considering his alleged desire to play in the UEFA Champions League. However, Barry responded to this positively and wrote a letter to the Birmingham Mail in which he thanked the Villa fans for their support while he was there, claiming that his move to City was for a "new challenge." He made his debut for City in the opening league game of the season against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 victory.
    Barry was part of the Villa team who lost the 2000 FA Cup Final 1–0 to Chelsea.
    More Details Hide Details In November 2007, it was reported that Aston Villa were set to award Barry a testimonial, at the age of just 26, to recognise his 10 years at the club. On 5 April 2008, Barry helped to break a run of bad form, scoring in a 4–0 victory over Bolton Wanderers. He scored two goals (his first two from open play that season) and he was also credited with two assists. As of April 2008, Barry, approaching 400 total appearances for Aston Villa, was the longest serving player in the team. During the league game against Bolton Wanderers on 28 October 2007, Barry became the youngest player to appear in 300 Premier League games (aged 26 years 247 days), replacing former record-holder Frank Lampard. In May 2008, Liverpool made a series of bids to buy Barry, all of which were rejected by Aston Villa. Barry publicly criticised his manager, Martin O'Neill, accusing him of making no attempt to keep him at the club, and further stating a desire to join Liverpool in order to compete in the Champions League. O'Neill denied this claim and Barry was officially disciplined for giving an unauthorised interview. A further bid from Liverpool of around £15 million was rejected as it was still short of Villa's £18 million asking price. Steve Finnan had then been offered in a part-exchange in the deal but the fee Villa wanted in this case was understood by BBC Sport to be £17 million with Steve Finnan.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1998

    He played his first match for Villa on 2 May 1998 against Sheffield Wednesday.
    More Details Hide Details Initially, he played as a central defender, on the left-hand side of a back three alongside Gareth Southgate and Ugo Ehiogu.

  • 1997
    Barry joined Aston Villa from Brighton and Hove Albion as a trainee in 1997 along with Michael Standing.
    More Details Hide Details The move was controversial as the Brighton board demanded £2.5 million for the two players; the Football Association's transfer tribunal panel came up with a deal which would have seen Brighton make £2.4 million in the event of Barry and Standing making international appearances for England, as well as sell-on clauses.
