Joey Barton had another great performance for Newcastle yesterday at Goodison Park, especially in the second half.
Joey Barton – excellent display yesterday
And Newcastle manager Chris Hughton was well satisfied with the display of the Liverpudlian as he said after the game:
“What we’ve consistently said with Joey is that if we can keep him playing football and keep him fit, he’s a very good player and a big asset for us,”
“Joey’s going through a period now where he’s been fit for the whole of pre-season apart from four days, trained every day and if he stays like that he’s a very good player.”
We have to hope that Joey can stay fit this season, because there’s little doubt when he gets fully fir he’s a very good player.
There are also signs he has settled down off the field as well, and we hope the daft things he did in the past are now just fading memories.
It’s a little strange but with Joey now one of the senior players at the club, he is even now setting a good example to the younger players at Newcastle.
