Joey Barton has come out today and paid a nice tribute to our three Spanish-speaking players – Enrique, Coloccini,and Gutierrez – the Three Amigos!
Newcastle’s terrific Three Amigos
Joey told the Evening Chronicle today
“They could have taken the easy option.” “You can get dragged down by a lot of things in this division.”
“But the lads haven’t let themselves – especially the Three Amigos. I can’t see them having to play on pitches like at Peterborough where they are from! “
“Hats off to them, they have been magnificent for us all season.”
It’s exactly true what Joey says, because it would have been much easier for each one of the three to leave for pastures anew last summer, but they stuck with Newcastle, and the fans will always remember that.
Joey of course still has a lot to prove to Newcastle fans, and we for one are hoping his ways of the past are now really over, and he will concentrate on having a great football career on Tyneside, where he seems to love it.
“We have got a dressing room that is full of players who have played in the Champions League and some who have won leagues and other competitions.”
“It’s a highly talented squad. I think that we have done very well to stay focused.”
“I haven’t really had that much time on the pitch this season.” “I played five or six games at the start. I’m still acclimatising to it. I have played just one game in the middle of the park.”
“I’ve been on the left and the right, but I am happy to play anywhere.”
Joey is now fit, after missing a large part of the season with his foot injury, but he makes the most of his subs appearance, and he did get a 15 minutes run-out last Tuesday night.
And when he started at Peterborough United, he played very well, and was possibly Newcastle’s best player that day.
There’s no doubt that Joey can start repaying the faith showed in him by the club next season, where he can help us survive, and even do well next season.
