Former England International Gareth Barry does not have many more years of football at 37 years. However, he will certainly go away with one record that will be hard to break. The West Brom midfielder holds the yellow cards record with 125 in Premier League history. The closest man is Everton striker Wayne Rooney with 101 yellows. Unfortunately, he might not be able to improve on his current record because his team will play in the Championship next season. However, a topflight team might sign him this summer.
