Time For Joey Barton To Shut Up About Newcastle


Twitter seems to have been specifically designed to get hot heads like Joey Barton into big trouble.

Joey Barton – trouble maker – no way!

And QPR fans will see what they will have to put up with from now on, as Joey has had the cheek to criticize Newcastle over their transfer business.

Again, it’s very much like what Jose Enrique did when he joined Liverpool, and Joey is simply trying to justify why he left the great Tyneside club for QPR.

Heaven help Joey and Jose, if Newcastle are actually successful this season.

But now that he’s left Newcastle, Joey is no longer part of the Newcastle scene, and as far as we are concerned, we’re not concerned what he does, but he needs to stop criticizing his former club.

Players who do that have no class.

Here’s Joey stirring it up again on that Twitter account of his, and how  he is allowed to get away with this, we have no idea:

“Cheik Tiote and Tim Krul will be sold as soon as there’s a significant bid or they ask for a new deal. ”  “Jonas Gutierrez and Fabricio Coloccini will also be off by this time next year.”

“Nice to see Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias come through with their promise to reinvest Andy Carroll money.”

“I feel sorry for Geordie nation. Ashley and Llambias don’t deserve that club or it’s following, I’m sure they think people are stupid.”

“That’s s £59M net profit from transfers in the last five seasons. Ambition?”

Newcastle fans are upset enough right now, without having Joey Barton rub it in.

And by the way, Joey had only  one good season at Newcastle, which was last season, when he played 35 times and scored 5 goals.  And yes he was great for Newcastle last season, no doubt about that.

In the previous 3 years he was at Newcastle he was always  injured, and played only 47 times with 3 goals in that time-frame.

And of course in the relegation season, he was out injured for six months, came back for the game at Liverpool in early May of 2009, and managed to get himself sent off, so he missed the last three vital games of the season and Newcastle got just 3 points out of those games and were relegated.

And of course there was an almighty row in the dressing room after that game, with then Newcastle manager and former great, Alan Shearer.

So we wonder whether one good season in four was a good return for a player earning £65K/week?

And of course he was jailed in the summer of 2008, when he committed a crime in Liverpool town center at 5:00 am in the morning on November 27th,  when he was a Newcastle player.

As we said before, he came to Newcastle with significant baggage, and he leaves Newcastle with with significant  baggage.

But it’s now time for Joey Barton to shut up about Newcastle United, and he can now concentrate on QPR, which is his club now.

    We have to move on from Desperate Dan though, even though we have some crazy constraints the team spirit and support can pull us through any situation…

    I don’t want a mega rich owner, but something between the current Scrooge regime and an abramovich would do very nicely!!!!

    I’ll complain as much as I like. We were told by Pardew and many on here to not judge until Sep.1st. Well that time has come and i’m hugely underwhelmed. What happen’s if Colo or Taylor get hurt?Perch at CB?Your having a laugh. Promised a striker since January and told by Pardew repeatedly after signing BA on a free that we would bring in a striker. Over and over and it didn’t happen because our owner refuses to reinvest. How could you be happy with that?

    On one had, he’s the only medium we have to know what’s going on- and I believe in freedom of speech. He should do an interview, get it off his chest and maybe move on – for his sake and ours.

    On the other hand – what effect this will have on the remaining players who knows? Can’t be good I would say, and I’m sure Simpson, Jonas and Collo won’t be far behind.

    Still no word from patsy or his puppet masters – apart from the stadium’s name change and we’re not allowed to stand up anymore.

    Did Tiote not sign a new contract in feb!!

    Also seen him have a dig about Santon, whilst at the same time praising QPR signings, forgetting his 2 new full backs are Traore who got tore a new one vs Man U on sunday and Luke Young who has hardly played for 2 years!!

    Ha ha enjoy your relegation battle Joey, cant wait to see Chieck smash you next monday

    Tell you what – if I win euro millions tonight i’ll set aside 15 million to buy Sturridge’s as a gift to the club. Thats a promise.

    Cant say fairer than that.

    How do you know he is telling the truth?

    He says Tiote will be sold if he asks for a new deal, well that happened in Feb and he got the new deal.

    People call Pardew a puppet, but thos believing and following Barton’s cr@p are just proving to be puppets as well, he knows exactly what he is doing stirring it all and no doubt he wants fans to be negative since we play them next.

    In regards to the being judged on sept 1st, I agree that a new defender should of been brought in as cover, a nippy striker would of been nice, but only if the right player was available and willing to come, not just anyone. The dealing we have done in the window have been good and just because of wednesday this should not be forgotten.

    ichrisho – you made some good points on the last blog on the truth behind the global economic crisis. It’s an unpopular view but what price the truth? I would prefer to hear all sides of the argument, to avoid being manipulated by the powers-that-be.

    Not to mention Barton was a driving force for us last season, football and leadership wise.

    @BarryVenison – Put your faith in the spirit of your club which is still alive and the players who want to do well for you. That should do you nicely – why listen to a QPR player? He is nothing to us anymore… a ghost a joke a puff from the past… Bye Joey good riddance…

    Agree with the headline. Move on – makes no odds if you liked Joey or not – he’s gone now. Any comments from him about the club now are damaging, devisive and disruptive – either truthful or not. I assume all the Joey lovers will be buying his autobiography when it comes out? Could Joey do a talk-in in Newcastle in the future after he retires…..I think not.
    He should have been sold though with the income and wages reinvested – that’s my main gripe.

    Otterspocket – we were crippled by the end of last season, and it’s arguable whether or not we are any better off now.. certainly weaker in key areas…

    The people pointing to the league table need to beware false dawns.. we benefitted from not having players to bed in, but eventually you need to have that depth,,, the three teams we have played – all responded with new signings,, we got cocky.. and thought hey we’re alright… very dangerous guys..

    Freedom of speech …

    Didn’t like him tweeting about NUFC when he was one of our players … but now, he’s entitled to his opinion.

    It’s up to you to decide whether you want to …
    a) write an article covered in ads to make money out of his comments about the club
    b) disagree
    c) agree
    d) ignore him
