Bigmouth Strikes Again!

Bigmouth Strikes Again!

Seemingly bouyed by his first 19 minutes of Premier League action for Newcastle United, Sir Joey Barton just would not let it lie.

He unwisely continues to draw attention to himself over his apparant obsession with Manchester City.

The man who made Manchester City what they are today told the marvellous Daily Star that his new MCFC target is our dressing room.

'Sometimes you could hear a pin drop,' he publicly confided.

'It's lost a lot of characters like Robbie Fowler, Andy Cole, Ben Thatcher, Nicky Weaver and myself.'

Stunning. Outside of Weaves, Thatcher The Assassin, Fatty Fowler and Andy Medi-Cole did next to nothing for Manchester City but were 'characters,' so that's all right then.

He droaned on...
'I speak to people there and they tell me they have so many languages, there's no banter now.'

Hmmm. The dead ball specialist replaced a Turk for his substitution on monday night. For his 19 minute appearance for The Barcodes that will strike terror throughout the Premier League, he joined...

...an Irishman, two Senegalese men, a Brazilian, a Spaniard, a Cameroon man, a rag reject, a Nigerian and a Czech Republican. A Frenchman and another Nigerian were also included in the Newcastle fifteen.

Finally, at the end of yet another toe curler of an interview for Newcastle fans to ponder upon, he pontificated...

'As well as they are doing right now, it's only a matter of time before it comes slamming to a halt unless they address that.'

Well, Joey, the laws of probability mean that we are due to lose a game or two at some stage, so if you keep predicting our impending nosedive with regularity, sooner or later you will be able to say 'I told you so' like the been there, seen it, done it 'Household name for all the wrong reasons' that we and the Newcastle fans know you to be.

He can't resist making an utter fool of himself...I wonder how long it will be until before he sticks one on one of his team mates, there are plenty of foreigners to have a go at. The Toons have had there best start for a number of years I wonder if it will last when he gets int the team.

I believe they did "address that" issue Joey...when they got rid of a player who attacked one teammate at a party, another on the training ground, and everyone else in the papers. Hmm I guess he forgot that not looking over your shoulder in case a teammate was about to attack you is also good for bonding. Please tell me he's wearing Bowyer's old number there.

Nice to see Barton's magic inspire Newcastle to defeat at Reading. Some consolation at least from a brutal weekend...
