Player Ratings: Everton 3 Aston Villa 0

Smiles were brought back to Goodison Park as the Everton faithful witnessed their team finally announce themselves for this season.

When we had to put up with the on/off Gareth Barry transfer saga all last season, one of the key facts throughout the drama was that Barry wanted to play Champions League football. It was a purely football based decision to want to leave Aston Villa, though the fact that […]

Liverpool: No Need For Gareth Barry
