Gareth Barry: Everton midfielder ready for derby day against Liverpool

Everton's on-loan midfielder, who played for Manchester City in their 6-1 win over Manchester United in 2011 and for Aston Villa when they crushed Birmingham 5-1 in 2008, has set his sights on completing a derby treble by beating Liverpool on November 23.

"I don't think too many can compete with the 6-1 for Manchester City at Manchester United. Or when Villa beat Birmingham 5-1, so I have had some fantastic scorelines in that respect," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"If you win that (derby) game you can walk around the street with a big smile on your face, if you lose it you want to stay in the house for the next week or two.

"It's exactly the same in every city. Hopefully Everton fans can walk around Liverpool with smiles on their faces.

"I'm really looking forward to the game. Derbies - wherever you are - are the fixtures that the fans look out for.

"The players get excited too, because they create special atmospheres.

"Having watched the Merseyside derbies over the years, I'm really looking forward to being part of one."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

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.
