Newcastle's Barton Gets Away With Murder

Newcastle's Barton Gets Away With Murder

Former Manchester City player Joey Barton has been released from prison after just serving two months of his original six-month sentence for assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray.

Barton's defence team told the judge, who dealt with the charge of assault that the footballer was remorseful.

In sentencing, Judge Globe told him...

'You were restrained by others but ignored them and acted in an extremely violent and aggressive manner.'

Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan went on record to say...

'Joey and I will need to have a meeting but I'm willing to give him a second chance.'

Pathetic. Mad Kev who has come across increasingly as an affable buffoon will see his standing seriously decline by his open support of that nutter. Newcastle must be in a worse state than I thought.

He doesn't deserve a second chance.

Not our problem anymore for which we are thankful because we got £5m for him. I will say this, it is up to the Newcastle Board and Management to deal with him in this matter. However in my opinion he has served his time and should not lose his job just because he has been in prison. A different matter if the crime had been a football related crime e.g. throwing a match or betting etc.. It was not and therefore should keep his job.

Love the "second chance" comment!! By my reckoning he had that years ago!! Still, as Buzz quite rightly puts it - not our problem!!!!

the shame is that if the Geordie's did sack him,some other club would pick him up for nothing.football should turn its back on him completely.

Joey should be banned from football. Mutu snorts drugs and gets a huge ban; Joey is a violent criminal and gets a second chance?

That CCTV footage showed a cowardly and brutal attack. He upset the stability at City more than once and the relief that we are well rid is immense. Every misplayed pass, badly timed tackle or booking will see him come under increasing pressure at Newcastle and his inclusion could become a liability and distraction for Mad Kev who may well regret his open support of the tapper.
