All his friends are dickheads too…

Joey Barton – an angry little enigma, wrapped in mystery, shrouded in absurdity and then dressed by Topman.

    I’m gonna put it out there, I’ve really warmed to Joey Barton recently. Seems a clever guy, funny too, and speaks his mind.

  2. Rich says:

    Fernando I’m with you actually, he has often acted a cunt but I’ve always felt it’s because he can’t escape from where he grew up rather than he wants to be, doesn’t justify it at all but makes me a little sympathetic

    and him over gareth “the entertaining one” barry any day

  3. jamie says:

    you two are a pair of fucking idiots. if any of the people who he has blinded, disfigured or hospitalised were some how related to you, I’m sure you’d be singing a different tune. He showed this very season that he hasn’t changed his mental ways one bit (Pedersen incident). Lots of people come from rough backgrounds, but not many of them are as great a cunt as this man.

  4. Chris T says:

    I knew it, i’ve been waiting so long for fundamental proof that you browse /soccer/!

    I personally have warmed to Barton since his twitter account, which is worrying.

  5. Chris says:

    @Chris T: I’m afraid that I’m not really sure of what you speak – we just get sent links to funny little things like this from time to time.

  6. Chris says:

    Glad I’m not alone in my completely conflicted feelings. One of his first tweets was about a Smiths song. I can’t – I don’t – um. What? Should’ve never followed him and everyone here is right.

  7. Markell says:

    Ok, he is an asshole…

    But a compelling, funny one.

    And as a City fan I have to say I think this is brilliant.

  8. Fulham89 says:

    those who oppose barton should be punched in the vagina. idiots. brilliant midfielder, speaks his mind, def not a pupper like majority of footballers. Hes a solid lad. Like any, fuck with him, then its you in the gutter. But hey, he’s human lads.

  9. jay says:

    haha I bet some of the people vilifying Barton are the sames ones worshiping Stevie G.
    Take off your blinders, no one is perfect

  10. Bob The Builder says:

    Forget about what the man has done in the past!!! This season everybody thought that they where going to see the “Old Barton” but to everybody’s suprise he has changed alot as a matter of fact. He was one of Newcastle’s Key Players and he did not let his past come in his way, he instead focused on his present and his Football so from me Joey “Bad Boy” Barton gets the thumbs up!!!

  11. Ceezer says:

    I like Joey! He plays with heart and does what the fuck he wants. People that don’t like Barton are most likely people that like Busquetts and those types.

  12. TravisKOP says:

    @Fernando, i agree. I met joey in LA not too long ago and he was a really cool guy. personally i would take him over half the footballing world because at least hes got heart and passion for the game

  13. Richard Dunne says:

    “Forget about what the man has done in the past!!!”

    Are you fucking kidding, he put out a cigarette in a kids eye!

    And he dresses like a complete knob.

    2 perfectly good reasons to hate a person.


  14. Gino Annie? says:

    Bell end. Why is he turning into one of these footballers putting their lives on this poxy twitter shit. This man is a tool box.

    Arse hole wearing those stupid glasses

  15. Connor says:

    I like barton and i’m a city fan. soft spot maybe for him keeping us up for a few seasons but he appears to be a pretty funny guy

  16. John says:

    He seems a funny guy, can be a psycho but hopefully he has grown up and put that behind him.

  17. nickooo says:

    Shutup jamie stop crying.

  18. Stephen Fry says:

    I can’t believe people actually like this guy because he has a fucking Twitter!

    He’s an egotistical twat!

  19. Calski says:

    @Stephen Fry – I don’t like him because he is on Twitter. I like him because he comes across as a stand up guy, who wears his heart on his sleeve. Yes he’s done some bad things, but he is the first to admit this.

  20. Paul Kirkland says:

    made me laugh

  21. Joe says:

    Isn’t his PR man rebranding him? Dull.
