Gareth Barry: Ready to make Everton debut against Chelsea

The 32-year-old signed a season-long loan with the Toffees late on transfer deadline day after falling out of favour at Manchester City.

The former Aston Villa midfielder had been told by new City boss Manuel Pellegrini that he did not figure in his first-team plans and as such has not made a single appearance so far this campaign.

Despite the lack of matches Barry insists he has been keeping himself fit and is ready to start for his new club against Jose Mourinho's men on Saturday - should he get the nod from boss Roberto Martinez.

"It's a fantastic first game to potentially be involved in but it's the manager's decision because I have not played loads of minutes at the moment," he told the club's official website.

"I feel fit. I haven't missed a day's training and I featured in bits and bobs of the pre-season games.

"The season's a well underway now and I've not played but I am confident if asked to play I can do a good job."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
