From day one of his professional career when Joey Barton misplaced his number 24 shirt at half time at the riverside, that deprived him of his debut as a raw academy graduate ,up until the present time, Joey Barton has never been in the press for the right reasons.
Joey has always let our fabulous club down. Not only has he let down the club & the fans that have always forgave & worshiped him regardless of the crime & the manager that has always maintained faith in his young protégé, but more tragically & importantly, he has let himself down.
Do I need to remind you of Joey`s catalogue prior to the latest episode? Remember James Tandy? Spurs away in the cup? Thailand? Ill informed Transfer request? Tirade of abuse against team mates (arguably right words, but wrong time & place)
Joey has always appeared to turn it around with the right action & the right words & no one can argue that his performances week in week out have never been less than 100%. This culminating in a well deserved & no doubt proud call up to represent England at senior level.
Joey has talent, of that there is no doubt. He also possesses a heart the size of a lion & generally he keeps a lid on it on the pitch & without him in our trenches & without his goals, we would have struggled even more than we have done so this year.
All things considered, there must be a limit. A line that can`t be crossed & if this is crossed, the consequence must be faced. Yesterday, Joey Barton crossed that line.
At the risk of cutting our nose off to spite our face & to maintain our reputation as a famous upstanding family club with morals, standards & traditions. A club that we are all terrifically proud to be associated with, Joey Barton should never represent Manchester City F.C ever again
