Kinnear Tells Barton – You Are A Silly Boy


Joe Kinnear seems to be acting like a father to Joey Barton, and Joe talks to him every day, and Joey would be well advised to listen closely to Joe, because his advice is spot on.

Joey Barton – Joe talks to him every day

Kinnear talked about Joey today:

“None of this is going to go away. Joey is playing with all this stuff over his head and it is coming back to haunt him and the only way he can answer his critics is to play good football.”

“He has to just be himself and play as well as he has been. He was outstanding the other night.” “When he came on against Sunderland, he got stories for the wrong reason, and again, it marred his performance. What happened the other night was unfortunate.”

“But the thing is with Joey, he has got good character. I speak to him on a daily basis and I have spoken to him and said, ‘You are in the limelight, you can’t afford to give them what they are looking for. You are a silly boy.”

“But he is so competitive. He is a winner, and like all competitors and winners, they sometimes over-step the mark because of their nature.” “He has got to control that and once he manages to do that, then he is as good as most midfielders around in the Premier League.”

“He is a winner for sure, so I don’t ever want him to lose that. I don’t want him to lose the fact that he has that winning mentality, I don’t want that to be taken away from him.”

“But he has been battered from pillar to post and I have got to make sure I keep him in the right frame of mind.” “I don’t want it to get to him, all this stuff that is going on around him.” ‘He has to live with it, we know that, but he also has to focus on playing good football.”

And more news of the wrong kind for Joey, in that Liverpool County Court District Judge Michael Baker has agreed a request from Phil Alcock, representing Barton who was not present, that he be allowed to question Jordan Spencer, 17, when the case finally comes to trial.

Jordan was physically attacked by Barton, and was left with scars to his face and mouth, after his jaw had been broken. The teenager is suing Barton for damages over the incident.

Richard Edwards was representing Mr Spencer and a surgeon had prepared an expert report on the youngster’s injuries. Edwards said:

“The scar on Mr Spencer’s lip can be seen from six foot away.”

“There is a (second) scar on his lip which may indicate the presence of a foreign body, and damage to one of his upper left teeth which dentists have said is now dead.”

The assault took place in the Liverpool city center at around 5:15 am, on December 27th last year, after Barton had been drinking heavily. He was found guilty and served a four-month prison sentence earlier this year, with the altercation being caught fully on CCTV cameras.

The Jordan Spencer case was adjourned to an unspecified date, some time after April 30 next year. But wouldn’t it be better to try to get these things over with – we know the wheels of justice turn slowly, but this is ridiculous.

    Joey has to learn to control his anger, there are those who will take advantage by winding him up and with his reputation both he and the team will ultimately suffer.
    As far asKatsbaia is concerned, dont think so,
    smacks of looking for a messianic savior.
    Give him some time in a competetive league, see how he does (yeah I know he drew with Morinhos Milan) Walthamstow ave. and Bishop Auckland went to the final rounds of the FA cup,
    did that mean they should have had 1st. Div. jobs ?
    In any case , you want to get rid of joe is it ?
    If JC himself came to manage the team, it would take one game before some of you wanted him fired.
    Tough crowd !

    Is this a different case to the one where Joey has already served a term inside. If not why is it still hanging around, I for one thought it was done and dusted. If it is something different then it has to be odds on he will go down again. Just when we (and he) were seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.
    Ketsbai has said he is interested but not in the short term, I would surprised if he was a front runner under new management.

    I think Joey needs a strong character like JFK to keep him on the straight and narrow. He could be a legend for us, and if he gets better than the Villa game, then we have a very good player indeed. Almost world class, barre a couple of ingredients..

    Ed Harrison, some of the ads on your site are blatant spyware, surely you can not be that desperate? Your reputation is dwindling, hence the steady decline in posts.. I for one would donate if it meant getting rid of the piss poor, and dangerous, adverts..

    Joey is relly starting to blossom under JK. How about this for a newcastle back room staff:
    Manager: Kevin Keegan
    Assistant managers: Joe kinnear, terry mcdermot, temuri ketsbia
    First team coaches: Chris houghton, Alan Shearer, lee clark
    Assitant team coaches: Rob lee, gary speed
    Fitness: Robbie elliot
    Goalkeeping coach: Paul Barron

    This is a civil case against Joey now the Criminal case has been put to bed. The youth with the tooth is after some money, well he’s going to isnt he? Joey has emerged as a very special player for us . He’s bright and wow what a player. its no coincidence that Keegans turning point came when Barton came back to the side. Remember the 4-1 away to spuds? and the 3-0 against Reading the following week. This Guy makes the difference. Got balls, loads of character, vision, touch, full of ideas. We will miss him if he screws up again. Kinnear must tell him to hurt people with the ball. Might appeal to him!

    Ah, that makes sense, I wondered if it might be. It will probably hit is pocket but won’t be going down.
    I hope all the news from now on is nice and positive, I think we have had more than our fair share of sh*te. It still rankles that we were the ones to suffer for Joey’s misdemeanours rather than ManC.

    Kinnear seems like the perfect character to help Barton at this time if im honest.
    He seems to have been a bit of a hot head himself in the past, but now is more sensible, yet still able to speak his mind.
    Barton needs to do exactly the same, put his past behind him and channel his agression into his football, he could be fantastic for us.
    On another note, Owen is presenting an award at the europe music awards in liverpool, ridiculous.

    Totally off topic. I was born and bred in Newcastle but fell for the charms of a scouse girl while in the Army,so i ended up living in Liverpool. Anyway i was out tonight and got talking to a load of Liverpool fans about Keegan coming back. I was and still(probably) am dead against him coming back but the thieves put across such a great argument about football being all about money and managers not caring about the fans or the players. Basically they think we need people like Keegan in football and believe me it took me back to the good times. Sorry had a bit too much wine but what do people think??????

    Joey makes enough bank to sort this kids problems out. Give him 50,000 ( not even one weeks pay) to get his lips sorted out by a plastic surgeon and his tooth fixed by a dentist. He’ll then have plenty left over to go and party so he can wander around drunk at 5.30 looking good as he should be allowed to.

    I do think he is in the midfield to stay and thankfully his form is good enough for him to be there. Let see him boss fullham about and hit some more passes to martins
