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.
