I know Ryan also played games before the Premier League so maybe his overall record (672) can be the next target.

"No. Once the transfer period is over, you focus on your squad and your players".

The Baggies have suffered nine defeats away to Arsenal in the Premier League, a joint-high for them in the competition alongside away defeats to Chelsea.

Barry played 365 league games for Villa, 132 league games for Manchester City, 131 league games for Everton and has featured in four league games for West Brom.

Time on the training ground is precious and can be crucial to what happens during a season and with all the games Arsenal have ahead these few days must be spent well. Michael Owen was English football's latest player of the season.

That's still not the case for Barry. "You accept that as well from the players who play for their club", came the response when the subject came up.

Arsenal were reportedly keen on bringing the former Manchester United man to The Emirates this summer, but West Brom rejected a bid of £25m.

Set to face off on Monday night, it will be the first time Gibbs would have faced Arsenal in his career, having been at the club for 13 years - and former boss Wenger has commented on the occasion, saying: "It will odd to see him in a different shirt because he is a player who has been educated here from a very young age". "It's a fantastic life I've been living - let's keep it going". What's more, he must make it through the entire campaign virtually unscathed, so there's a long way to go yet.
