All were glowing, but Everton's summed up the Premier League record holder's 653 appearances best: "Congratulations on a fantastic career." That was in reference to the fact that Barry was retiring at the end of the season.
The Welsh international made his debut for Wimbledon in 1996 and scored on his First Division debut against Leicester City. He went on to make over 100 appearances for the Dons before moving to Southampton where he played until 2006 when he joined Manchester City. During his time at the South Coast club, he won two FA Cups and one Charity Shield. In 2008, he moved to Goodison Park where he has since become a first-team regular.
Barry has been selected in the PFA Team of the Year each year from its inception in 2001/02 to 2015/16. The only player to have appeared in every single Premier League game so far is David Beckham who played alongside Barry at Manchester United before making a name for himself with London-based clubs Real Madrid and LA Galaxy.
He currently plays in the centre of midfield and has been described as "the best passer in the league" (The Independent). His accurate passing and ability to find teammates with precise balls into the box have made him one of the most important players for his teams.
Gareth Barry has appeared in 653 games. Gareth Barry now has the most Premier League appearances to his name. He has made 653 Premier League appearances for clubs like as Aston Villa, Manchester City, Everton, and West Brom. He was part of the England squad that won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Gareth Barry is a Welsh international football player who plays for Aston Villa. He has been described as "a true pro" with an ability to read the game which has helped him become one of the best outfield players in the Premier League.
He began his career at Aston Villa where he made over 100 appearances before moving to Manchester City for £16 million in August 2008. After just one season at City, during which time he scored 11 goals from midfield, he moved back to Villa for £20 million. He has gone on to make more than 150 appearances for them and win two FA Cups.
Barry started his professional career at Aston Villa in 1998 and stayed there until 2004 when he joined Manchester City. During his time at City, he won the UEFA Champions League in 2009 and the FA Cup in 2011. In July 2012, he returned to Villa after they bought him back from City for £12 million.
He currently plays for Aston Villa where he is a first team regular under Paul Lambert.
41 occurrences There were 41 appearances in all, with Keane scoring four goals, three in the league and one in a Merseyside derby tie at Goodison Park, in addition to two England caps.
Keane made his debut against West Brom on August 31, 2017. He was substituted off in the 73rd minute of the match - a 3-1 win for Everton - after picking up an injury while trying to stop a free kick. The next day he scored his first goal for the club in a 4-0 win over Rotherham United at New York Stadium. He completed the full 90 minutes of both games and won praise from manager Roberto Martinez for his performance.
Keane's early season injury problems continued into 2018-19, with him being one of several players to miss much of the campaign through suspension or injury. However, when available he often starred for Everton's under-23 side in various competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, where they lost to Real Madrid in the last 16 stage this year.
Keane is expected to be one of the stars of Everton's upcoming pre-season tour of America, where the team will play Chelsea, LA Galaxy and Manchester City. He is hoping to add more trophies to the cabinet this summer after losing in the FA Cup final last season.
Between 1982 and 1997, he gained a then-record 92 caps for Wales, made over 600 games for Everton, and helped the Blues become the best club in the nation, if not Europe. Only the Heysel ban on English clubs prevented Southall from winning the European Cup. There are the greats from Wales and Everton, and then there's Neville Southall. A true legend of Welsh football.
He was one of the most talented players to have played for Wales, and his record remains unbroken today. The only other player who has reached the same number of caps is John Charles, but he didn't play in as many top-flight matches (154 vs. Southall's 92).
Southall made his debut against Northern Ireland on 2 February 1982 and scored his first goal three days later during a 1-1 draw with England at Wembley. He went on to win eight full international caps, more than any other player before or since, scoring four times. His record has never been surpassed by a Welsh player.
During his time at Everton, he won two FA Cups (1985, 1990), an UEFA Cup (1985-86) and a League Cup (1989). After leaving Goodison Park in 1991, he ended his career with North American club Toronto Blizzard. He returned to Wales after one season to coach Cardiff City, but was sacked just five games into the 1994-95 season. He had finished second only to Ian Rush in the goalscoring charts the previous year.
What Suarez achieved in his final season at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah did in his first, scoring 32 goals and breaking the Premier League record for most goals in a season. He also had ten assists, completing the season with 42 goal contributions, which was the third-most in Premier League history. The previous record was 41 set by Alan Shearer in 1995–96.
Suarez finished with 33 goals, just two behind Salah's record. The Uruguayan had three seasons at Liverpool where he scored 30 or more goals, making him the only player to have done so. His departure to Barcelona in 2017 made way for Salah to take over as the club's main striker. However, when Suarez returned from Spain late in 2018, he immediately became Liverpool's top scorer again, this time with 31 goals.
Looking at individual records, Suarez has more goals than both Shearer and Eric Brook combined. He also has more assists than either player too.
Suarez' achievements at Liverpool are without doubt the most memorable parts of his career so far. In 2014, he helped the club win its tenth league title, becoming the first player to achieve this feat. The following year, he scored 26 goals, including six in the last matchday game against Stoke City. This is the highest number of goals scored in a single English football season. Finally, at the end of his time at Liverpool, he was called up for Uruguay for two international matches.
