[edit] FM10 Rating

Gareth Barry is a leading player and centre midfield in this years version of the game especially for Manchester City, Though not the best on the game he is up there. Gareth has strong abilities in years game for a centre midfield as he has excellent passing and tackling abilities as well as good mental and then reasonable physical abilities which do kind of let him down. That said at 28 he is not a player you are going to need to be replacing, rather more just build your team around him. Gareth can also play as a converted defensive midfield however he is not as strong there.
