RIP.

My only memory of Barker is a Supporters' Club Q&A evening with him and Bracewell, where one or the other basically said all players at that level were stupid and needed very clear instructions or they'd bugger everything up, while the other one looked very nervous and uncomfortable at the comment. I can never remember which one said it though.

Remember Paul Stoneman commenting on Paul Bracewell he said if we could have done everything that Paul wanted we would have been playing in the 2 nd tier and not 4 th Tier .It would be difficult to say who was worse for Town Bracewell or Butler both expensive and contributed bugger all whatever they say .

Probably same meeting, Barker being abusive to Kit, telling him to let others ask the questions.

I wanted Richie Barker to be everyone's favourite grandad,  but he wasn't that sort at all. Ian Fitzpatrick later admitted in a later profile in a matchday programme his biggest drag in football was Richie Barker.
