#TheBartonEffect: Olympique Marseille Fan Erupts Over Joey Barton’s Imminent Loan Move

By Chris Wright

Word on the wire is that QPR reprobate Joey Barton is about to put the ‘arse’ in Marseille, with a season-long loan to L’OM said to be very close to completion this morning (with Marseille’s Stephane M’Bia going to other way).

    Under reaction, for my money.

  2. SL says:

    I really dont see whats in it for Marseille. Barton for Mbia is a rip off, even if it is only for 1 season loans.

  3. Steph says:

    The 93 tag indicates north suburbs of Paris :)

  4. Graham says:

    This bloke should be fun to follow on twitter if Barton actually “sings” for Marseille.

    Never knew Mohammed Ali was an avid Marseille fan

    @Mr Chopper: could be yes, especially since the guy lives in London, not in France. I don’t really see what the suburbs of Paris have to do with it. Anyway, quite a funny guy for a Marseille fan, I’ve met others way more idiot than him.

    Make this happen NOW!!!
