Premier League appearance record a tribute to Gareth Barry's longevity, consistency

Saturday against West Ham marks Gareth Barry's 632nd league appearance, equalling Ryan Giggs' Premier League record.

History is not always made by the trendy. The Premier League can market itself as being about the glitz and glamour. Gareth Barry may seem the anti-Premier League football but when West Bromwich Albion against West Ham kicked off, it meant no one had made more appearances in the division's history.

Barry drew level with Ryan Giggs on 632. Giggs may have seemed a more fitting figure at the top of the leaderboard, the most decorated individual in the history of the Premier League's most successful...

After a breathless opening fortnight, the Premier League now goes on hold to make way for another raft of World Cup qualifiers. So how did your team do? Iain Macintosh grades the entire division.


Perfect. An entirely unblemished record. Admittedly, this entirely unblemished record has been secured against some of the weaker teams in the league, but that's hardly their fault. Besides, if we all insist that the beauty of the Premier League is that, "anyone can beat anyone," then...

Gareth Barry and Darren Fletcher: the Premier League elder statesmen

Darren Fletcher (left) and Gareth Barry (right) are two of the Premier League's most battle-tested veterans.

When Darren Fletcher unexpectedly departed West Bromwich Albion this summer for Stoke City, West Brom manager Tony Pulis had an ideal replacement in mind. In Gareth Barry, 36, three years Fletcher's senior, Pulis signed just about the only player who might replicate his dependability and experience in central midfield.  

"There was a big void when we lost Fletch, and Gareth will fill that void," Pulis said after Barry was signed last week. Between them, two of the Premier League's most...

Man City target Evans has shown his quality since leaving Old Trafford

Don Hutchison joins Layla Anna-Lee to explain why a move for Jonny Evans would be 'no bad thing' for Manchester City.
Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes reflect on Nemanja Matic's debut and how Man United might line up moving forward.
Brian McBride questions whether or not Mourinho is making the right move to hold off on any additional Man United signings.

Jonny Evans had been back to Old Trafford a couple of times as a player since his move from Manchester United to West Brom in 2015 but, despite that, his mindset had barely changed: He still let on to staff like he played there, still wore the club's shirt when he went back for Wayne Rooney's testimonial.

But having gone back to do an interview for MUTV, he walked pitch side in the empty stadium and took a few minutes for himself. He'd forgotten how amazing Old Trafford was and, as he stood there,...
