Barton Tweets Cause Problems Again – Obertan Unveiled Tomorrow


Joey Barton joined the Newcastle first team in training on Monday, that was the good news.

Joey Barton – unwelcome tweets again

Apparently this followed a very good and positive meeting that Joey had with the manager Alan Pardew on Monday morning,

The midfielder trained with the senior team for the first time since he was banned by the club last Monday, after he had tweeted his disdain for the Newcastle hierarchy, and then he kept tweeting most of the week in defiance.

After training with the first team Monday, he then surprisingly went back to his tweeting ways with these tweets:

“Looking forward to Arsenal on Sat, I’ll be playing….”

That was against the new Newcastle club policy on social networks,  that forbids Newcastle players from talking about anything that is club related, and when told this Joey then tweeted:

“That comment was not literally to be taken on board…. no one knows the team yet.”

What is it that makes people turn so narcissistic when using Twitter and FaceBook?

As we mentioned a couple of days ago,  only two Premier League  clubs, Stoke and Wigan,  have expressed any real interest in the player, since he was put on the transfer list as a free agent.

That’s in spite of  stories of reported interest from some of the top clubs, like Arsenal and Manchester United.

Newcastle had worked on an agreement with Barton recently,  that he stay quiet for a while so that things could settle down, but Joey has started his tweeting ways again.

Barton needs to shape up fairly quickly, or else he could face being sacked outright by the Newcastle club, and that would be disastrous for both parties.

Joey  must take the non-tweeting directive from the club as serious, because Newcastle don’t want to be in the headlines again,  because of Joey’s tweets.

On a  more positive note, Newcastle will introduce their new winger, Gabriel  Obertan, tomorrow morning and Gabriel becomes the 5th Frenchman to sign on for the club this summer.

And although there were reports in the papers that Newcastle have agreed a fee to sell Jose Enrique to Liverpool, Alan Pardew against stressed on Monday that no bids have yet been received for the Spanish U21 International.

It seems to us that Alan Pardew is keen,  if not desperate, to keep both Joey and Jose at the club.

And while Jose has behaved himself quite well in the circumstances, apart from that one wayward tweet while in America, Joey Barton seems to be testing the Newcastle manager’s patience, and that of some of the Newcastle fans too, who don’t like to see the club’s name tarnished – again.

In addition it seems that Derek Llambias still has to be convinced that Joey isn’t still a liability to the club.

We hope Joey shapes up now, and quickly too, because he could still become an important player for the team next season, but not if he insists on tweeting about everything that’s going on.

Come on Joey,  shape up,  for the good of Newcastle United, and for the good of yourself too.

Comments welcome.

    Really? C’mon Joey, most fans want you to stay but you are going to force your way out and lose any fan support you still have. Just delete you account.

    I think the comment was just meant to be a stur up for journalists etc hence the comment after.

    But again if your told not to talk about the club it shouldn’t be done, light hearted or not.

    Hard to know what kind of season Joey has coming up if he stays:

    *i don’t personally include him in my starting 11 (tho maybe thats just the excitment of new players i want to see playing)

    *i doubt he’d be happy on the bench – but then it would surely be his final season – so we’d want other midfielders to start- and thus gain experience….

    *is he gonna work/let alone lead, a dressing room full of frenchmen??

    JOEY NEEDS TO GET HIS HEAD IN THE GAME NOW, OR HIS POSITION WILL BE MORE OF A RISK THAN A BONUS.

    jOSe i’m not so worried about, if he stays he’ll play great. If he goes, we’ll get enough millions to replace him with someone, hopefully, as good.

    This just proves what a twat Barton is. He should have at least had the common sense to know that that tweet would clearly break the highly mentioned club rules. He’s a talented rotton apple that we don’t necessarily need.

    Can’t wait for the Obertan unveiling, some good news at last.

    It’s the fat b@stard and his smarmy faced dog that should get their act together or get out.
    Not Joey.
    Anyway it’s not just Joey bleating on about the greedy, Pugsley looking tw@t…
    Keegan, Given, Enrique, Nolan are all living proof that Joey is right. Good on him for having the balls to speak out against this tyrant.

    Your probably right but he has said he is out before the transfer period so I don’t see him playing Sat.

    Haven’t heard and rumors as to him coming here which makes me think he might be.

    Cops shot an unarmed guy (granted he was a drug dealer but that doesn’t excuse it), peaceful protest by family and friends turned violent following altercation with police and teenager at station. From there sh!t hit the fan

    Floridatoon – That crossed my mind when I saw on SSN today that Bendtner has again mentioned that he’s definately moving this summer.

    I would be pleased with Bendtner but beggars can’t be chooses. If I could choose though I’ll buy Sturridge.

    Used to live in Hackney and its not the peoples fault they live in a ghetto. Government should focus on our own shortcomings instead of splashing the cash to help Italy, Portugal etc.

    I reckon Joey is on his way now.

    Think about it. Before this “no tweeting about the club” agreement was signed the club fined him a maximum two weeks wages.

    What would be the point of getting the players to sign a legal agreement if it didn’t mean they could issue a higher punishment. For example releasing the player without paying off the rest of his contract.

    I reckon Joey has deliberately tweeted about the club in order to leave on a free this year, in the belief a team will pay his current wages as they wont have to deal with a club.

    Sturridge for me too, even if on loan. What I don’t get is why his move such a secret. All I know is he is not going to Stoke because when asked about it he laughed.

    ronaldeano

    good on him for earning 50k a week and acting like a complete unprofessional..there are ways of standing up against the board and making the club look like a circus is not one of them..i just wonder what potential players considering moving to us think when they see bartons ridiculous tweets….no player is bigger then the club

    ashleys has made some false promises but their is a dedication to invest in youth, signings have been clever so far and hopefully a few more will come throiugh the door.

    ashley has pumped millions into the club, barton has taken millions out of it..last season was the first time he showed some promise in a black and white jersey and now he has the cheek to swan about the place like he is god’d gift…he’s acted like an utter twat in this episode

    keegan really cared for the toon didnt he, trying to sue us for millions why we were in the championship…now thats greedy

    given went to city and sat on the bench earning ridiculous wages..thats creed

    nolan left because he wanted a long term contract…thats fair enough but again its greed, he left to suit himself and not the club
