Barton Makes Conciliatory Move Towards Newcastle


What is now coming to light quickly today, is that Joey Barton has made some conciliatory gestures to his employer – Newcastle United.

Joey Barton – conciliatory move by player

There has been a battle going on since last Monday,  when Joey Barton was fired, and since then Joey has continued to tweet disparaging stuff about Mike Ashley, but it seems the 28 year-old may have finally come to his senses.

This is what a senior Newcastle official said today:

“Joey’s attitude ahead of the Leeds friendly could have been much better and the club have been frustrated and bewildered by his use of Twitter to showcase his feelings.”

“But what was said yesterday puts matters in a little different light and everyone knows what a fine player he can be. It may be in everyone’s best interest to find a way out of the corner that we’ve painted ourselves in.”

Joey has been way out of control,  but whether things can be patched up with Mike Ashley we don’t know, but it will be very difficult.

That’s unless Joey has contacted the owner and apologized, and said he will finally quit that Twitter account of his, which is like a lighter being  near a gasoline can, as far as Joey is concerned.

But he’s embarrassed himself and the Newcastle club this week, and that’s the unfortunate truth.

We have no idea what will happen now, but it’s obvious that Alan Pardew is willing to forgive and forget, given his comments about Joey earlier today.

But Alan Pardew is not the last word on Joey,  it’s owner Mike Ashley, who was the one criticized, and Mike has never shown much mercy in the past, and we’d be surprised if he shows any now.

There’s no doubt that Joey is a very good player and gives his heart and soul to Newcastle, but he cannot keep blowing up like this.

We are running a vote on the home page – on whether you want Joey to stay at Newcastle for next season – please vote so we can get a measure of the feelings of the Newcastle fans about this.

Comments welcome.

    Would anyone else be happy for Tiote if he got a move to Chelsea/Man Utd. I would be sad that he’s not a the club but I think he deserves it

    If Tiote left for a huge club then yeah id be happy for him and sad for us obviously. But he wouldnt leave under a cloud as he has been the model professional on and off the field, appreciative to the club and always gives 110%

    Dunno who we’d replace him with but he would bring in Carroll sized money for sure

    Tiote, I believe is going to leave by end of August. I think what happened and what has been said the last few weeks has really affected the fella… he had no idea it would turn out like this…

    I wouldn’t exactly say that Romeu is Essiens direct replacement, maybe in the long run but I would be very surprised if he features heavily this season

    Here, here!

    Im positive, Tiote wont leave us this season. If we dont make europe he will go next year to a huge club for a huge fee. Fair play, thats football.

    On the plus side for us I think at least two more will arrive and we will be stronger than last year without a doubt

    @davybtoon – They laugh at us because our club is run as a going concern… and we believe in the club and the history… I cannot believe that all of you again are settling to sit on your holes and say and do nothing about this… This place is being run into the ground by arrogant rich w@nkers…

    Yeah, the sitation is dire, but u’re waaaaaay off if you think we’re gonna be involved in a relegation battle.

    Tiote is still going nowhere, and we’ll add atleast two players.
    Stay on the up, and let tomorrow worry about itself.
    Crying before the window is closed gets you nowhere.

    He is a very talented youngplayer but its difficult to say whether he’d cut it on a regular basis in the EPL at such a young age. I expect him to play a bit part under Obi Mikel

    We really need to get this Barton thing sorted for the good of the team. It can’t be good for morale to have the pendulum swinging back and forth. We should be deciding on our first eleven and making sure they’re gelled so we need to know if players like Barton (and Jose) are going to be here come the start of the season. I’ve said before I want Barton to stay and I’ll say it again but I hoped the situation is resolved soon, either way.

    Tiote must stay- he’s vital. Great palyer, loved watching him last season and he should only get better as time goes on. Still can’t believe that was his first season in the EPL- talk about adapting quickly. Let’s hope the rumours are unfounded and try to be posistive.

    @Dannyo – Fair enough – I agree. I just find the way this last few weeks has played out in public is so embarrassing… and as i try sleep at night – I can only see fat controller laughing in front of his big flat screen TV at home… I would love to hack his phone… Come on NEWS of the World – Get hacking…

    Magforlife – That’s how it starts. People who are pathetic enough, to claim to have a ‘ITK’ mate, I call them by their real alias ‘attention seekers’.

    The only source who leaks stuff on here, that has a smidgen of credibility, is Coozy.
