Joey Barton Celebrates Goal v Villa With Hitler Salute? (With Video Evidence)

DID he? Judge for yourself…

From where I sit, it looks suspiciously like tached-up Joey Barton made a quick Hitler-style salute after scoring in Newcastle’s thrashing of Aston Villa today (4-0 to the Geordies as I write). And why not – if it’s good enough for Freddie Starr (and many others), eh.

Twas no doubt intended as a ‘comedy’ reference to his moustache, which he will now shave off – if he makes good on his promise to do so when Newcastle win their first match of the season. Or he might decide to keep the tache, as he’s playing rather well right now.
