Barry future may be sorted soon

first_img The 32-year-old England international, a £12million signing from Aston Villa in 2009, will enter the final year of his contract in the summer. Barry has said he would like to extend his stay and even end his career at the Etihad Stadium and with fellow midfielder Yaya Toure tied to a new deal just last week, City manager Roberto Mancini has suggested Barry could be next. When asked about Barry at his latest press conference, the Italian said: “I think we have three or four players in this situation. We will decide this in the next month but these players are important players for us. I am very happy with Gareth because Gareth is a good guy and a serious professional player. He is really serious as a man.” Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry’s future at the club could be determined before the end of the season. Press Associationcenter_img Another player who will only have one year remaining on his contract by the summer is striker Carlos Tevez. Mancini has previously hinted the Argentinian could be offered a one-year extension to his deal. Tevez, who impressed in Monday’s defeat of Manchester United and has scored seven goals in his last seven appearances, is currently training and playing while carrying out community service. The 29-year-old was ordered to undertake 250 hours of unpaid work after being convicted of driving whilst disqualified earlier this month. Mancini claims there has not been any issue balancing his responsibilities. When asked if it could lead to problems, Mancini said: “I don’t think so, no.” Mancini will check on the fitness of two other key players ahead of Sunday’s game at Wembley. Playmaker David Silva was rated highly doubtful immediately after suffering a hamstring injury at Old Trafford but has improved since and has not yet been ruled out. Mancini said: “We will decide, I think, on Sunday morning. We don’t know if it is possible and if there is a risk he will not play, but if there is not then maybe. He is getting better. Yesterday he ran, so I think we have a chance.” Striker Sergio Aguero, who came off the bench to score a superb winner on Monday, is not yet a definite starter as the club manage his return from a knee injury. The manager said: “I don’t think he is fit 100 per cent. If he was he would have played the whole game against United. But now he is getting better and his knee is okay. It could be that he starts.” last_img read more

Sumner Newscow weekly poll: The Brownback executive order question

first_imgFollow us on Twitter. By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Gov. Sam Brownback signed an executive order Tuesday rescinding a protection for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender state workers that was put into place by then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius eight years ago.  Loading … What is your view on Brownback’s latest action. I’m in full agreement. It was useless bureaucracy. This is a really bad idea for so many reasons. I am ambivalent on this subject. View Results Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

The public needs to be aware of the dire situation it has caused. Our schools have had to make immediate cuts, firstly being supplies. Our kids need to have essential supplies like copy paper, construction paper, glue and tape. Report Reply 0 replies · active 287 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
