Jabba's Comments

Versatile midfielder who first came to prominence as a youngster at Spurs. He's mainly a right-sided player, but has been known to play on the left - and in more recent times has filled that slot for Liverpool and England. His first big-money transfer to Boro didn't quite work out - but he moved on for an even bigger fee to Everton after just over a year where he became an established member of an under-achieving side. A controversial move across Stanley Park looked to have revitalised his career, but he was plagued by injuries that removed him from the side just as Liverpool were in the final stages of their cup treble of 2000-01. After coming back into the international side under Sven, injuries in 2001-02 again kept him out of a large part of the season and ultimately cost him a World Cup place. He became Terry Venables' first signing at Leeds - and at a price that looks to be a bargain for an international player, who is still in his prime at 28.

He scored a goal on his debut for Leeds, but played an anonymous role in a lacklustre midfield in the early part of the 2002/03 season. He returned to the side in February just as the latest batch of injuries - and the enforced sales - had left El Tel barely able to muster 16 fit first-teamers. Overall his performances throughout the season didn't set the world on fire, and his goals were seldom part of an all-round impressive performance. He remained with the club in 2003-04 but neither Peter Reid nor Eddie Gray seemed keen to use his talents, despite the injury crisis and the team's slump in form. He had a loan spell at Forest in early 2004, and it wasn't until the dog days of the relegation campaign that he was given another chance at Leeds, appearing as a sub in the hammering at Highbury, the home capitulation to Pompey and finally coming on for a few minutes at Stamford Bridge after enduring a stream of abuse from the crowd while he warmed up: he'd not exactly helped his cause by being spotted at his home-town club of Hull one Saturday when he hadn't been picked for Leeds - but I can't quite see how Barmby came to be such a target for abuse when there were far more deserving cases who had at least been on the pitch during the season-long slump. With the club keen to cut the wage bill after relegation, it seems he will have his contract paid off and be free to find himself a new club for 2004-05.

jamie arnold says: that was a heaps good goal aginst machester city and you rule is terry venables a good manager?

Edward Thompson says: That was a phat goal what you scored against manchester city. My dad was in england for a bit and he got me a leeds shirt with Barmby on the back after i saw you scored that goal.the first time I saw you play was on my computer game then the first time i saw you play in real life was when liverpool took on newcastle lastyear. You are a cool player I hope leeds can come back to australia some time so i can see you play.

V says: You are a real good player I am one of your best fans. I have seen you play for a long time and and I was really pissed off when you did'nt play in the World Cup

blah says: i think he is rubbish and should play for the womens league!!!

Sarah Barmby says: el you probable wont believe me but i'm sort of related to him. i think he plays great and i'm proad t be related to him!

**sarah** says; get rid of him!!!

ian elliot says: I think that Nick is an excellent player and a vital asset. He is on a huge wage which will be the demise of his leeds career. Eddie Gray is crazy not to pick him when we have not got an experienced,creative midfielder like him.

Ross says: Take a pay cut or get the hell out!!! How can u sit there on 30 k a week when you know Leeds are in trouble??? If you accepted a more reasonable wage you could be a vital asset to Leeds & score the goals to get them promted.

love_leeds_17 says: Goodbye and stayaway. Leeds is a better place without leeches like you!
