Barton Admits It’s Time To Keep His Peace On Newcastle

Some good news from Joey Barton which he hope he will carry through on.

About an hour ago on his Twitter account, which has got him into significant trouble since he started it up  last May, Joey  tweeted this about an hour ago:

“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.

Comments welcome.

    He is not sensible at all. He just realised, that he has got a potential lawsuit on his hands, and suddenly he has a change of heart ..

    If he just thought more before he blogged he’d save himself an apology or two – think that’s a more sensible approach

    Just out of curiosity,who would have Barton back right now? I wouldn’t and for one reason only,he would upset the team spirit.As a player I was sad when he left but now after all this tw@tter nonsense I can see why the toon got rid.

    Poor Joey, he must have so many regrets about not settling it with the club before he was kicked out so that he could have been a part of this new revelation of Newcastle United.

    Cant see the point of Barton running his mouth like he has, as it as achieved nothing other than him now plying his trade with a smaller club who can only dream of have having the stature of NUFC. He’s a great player but I believe he will have many regrets when he calls time on his career.

    GeordieToon89, you’re rigth. But the fact that it takes a lawsuit to shut the guy up, says quite a bit about him. As much as I enjoyed having him here last season, I am really happy that our dressingroom no longer has him in it ..
