Joey Barton has made a good start to the season, and we just have to hope that he can remain fit, because we’ve always knows Barton was a good player.
Joey Barton – very good start to the season
In Joey’s first three seasons on Tyneside he amassed just 47 appearances and 3 goals at the Tyneside club, and that’s not hardly enough appearances for such a good player.
But he’s already scored two goals this year, two beauties too – one on Saturday and that excellent free kick he put in at Peterborough United on 3rd April.
Newcastle manager Chris Hughton has come out today and says he’d like to see Joey play a lot of games this season, and says Joey should let his football do the talking.
Chris said today:
“Joey is a good player, we have always known that.” “It’s just we have missed his services on the football pitch, which has unfortunately not allowed him to play as many games as he would have liked.”
“But a fit Joey Barton, we have always known, is a good player.” “What Joey has to do is go through a period of playing well and doing what he is doing at the moment, letting his football do the talking.”
“That’s always the best way with any player, and Joey is certainly giving us good value.”
And there’s signs this year that’s just exactly what Joey plans to do, as we have to hope his daft actions of the past, are well and truly over.
It seems the lad has finally matured, and we hope that’s the case, and certainly the Newcastle fans just love the player, who has said many times that he just wants to play football for the Newcastle United club.
Well – he’ll get his chance this season, and here’s hoping he can continue with his great form.
