Some good news from Joey Barton which he hope he will carry through on.
“Pardews a good man and manager, I agree with what he has said. Time to keep my peace.”
Joey came out blasting (again) earlier this week, when he criticized Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias and was hardly complimentary to them – but unfortunately he’s making the comments in the public arena, and they immediately get reported by all the news media.
Alan Pardew had mentioned yesterday in his press conference, that he wondered why Joey kept tweeting stuff about Newcastle, which are now events in the past.
The Newcastle manager was a bit miffed that Joey was taking away some of the credit that his team should be receiving in the press, for their excellent form this season.
We hope that’s the end of Joey tweeting about Newcastle United, but we remember shortly after he left the club that he said he would never criticize the Newcastle club again, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Of course that doesn’t mean he will not come out and make other criticisms, and possibly against his new club OPR, that seems only logical – well at least for Joey.
We will not be surprised if the Newcastle club have started legal actions against Barton linked to his comments earlier in the week.
