27-year-old Joey Barton will probably get a start for Newcastle on Sunday afternoon, and if he follows his last two starts for Newcastle, he will again be voted our best player.
Joey Barton – will get a start on Sunday afternoon
Joey talked to Newcastle United TV today:
“For me it’s strange because I’m just getting back into it now and I don’t want the season to end,” “I think all of the other lads are looking forward to the break, and deservedly so.”
“It’s been a long, hard season for them and they’ve been magnificent.” “I’m delighted that I’ve been able to come back at the end and play a part, but all of the credit must go to the lads who’ve been there all year.”
“I just wish we had a few more games to go. I can’t wait for every game at the minute and, for me, Sunday is a big match that I’m desperate to be part of.”
“We’re not on the beach just yet and we want to finish with a win. We’ll have another big away support and we owe that to them.”
Quite honestly we’ve never seen Joey in such great spirits as he seems to be in right now, and the lad seems to have fallen in love with the club, the fans and the City.
Not unlike what we’ve heard from Nicky Butt, before he leaves the area after six years on Tyneside.
We have to hope that if Joey can avoid injury next season, he could have his best ever season in a new Puma black and white strip.
Which reminds us – where are the new strips?
From what we’ve heard from Joey these last few weeks, we have to hope his past troubles are firmly behind him, and if that’s indeed true, that would be great for both Joey Barton and the Newcastle club.
Comments very welcome.
