'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barker Collects Palace Accolade

The Croydon Advertiser has crowned Blackpool defender Shaun Barker as the best away player to visit Selhurst Park last season.

The award follows Barker's performance in the Seasiders' 1-0 win against Crystal Palace in January, a game in which they were reduced to 10 men for a large part of.

The paper states that 'After keeper Paul Rachubka was sent off three minutes in, Palace looked set for a win.

'But DJ Campbell's penalty coupled with a colossal defensive display from Barker thwarted Palace.'

Members of the messageboard who attended the game certainly seem to agree with the award, pinpointing Barker's performance as the best in a superb overall team performance. Indeed, it can be argued that the Palace game kickstarted Barker's season, which, until that point, had been abysmal.

The news comes with a claim from the Blackpool Gazette that Derby have now offered 400,000 plus Liam Dickinson for the rejuvenated defender.
