When Will The FA Come Down Hard On Joey Barton?


We read with astonishment the tirade of Joey Barton last night  on that Twitter account of his when Didi Hamann – the former Newcastle central midfielder Kenny Dalglish signed in 1998 – tried to have a logical discussion with Joey.

Didi Hamann while at Newcastle

That was Didi’s  first mistake because Joey Barton is not built to have any logical discussions with anybody, and flies off the handle at the smallest criticism, and he came storming back with personal and immature insults to  Didi.

The Twitter discussion is out on the web for you to see, I’m not putting it on this site, and it started off by Didi telling Barton that he shouldn’t be commenting on ongoing transfers on his Twitter account, and Joey got nasty very quickly.

It seems like the German was trying to have a logical discussion with Joey – no chance.

If Joey Barton is not bringing the game of football into disrepute then I don’t know what it means to bring the game into disrepute.  And who was the person that told Joey that his job was to publicize the transfer dealings of clubs like Newcastle?

It hardly helped Newcastle keep things quiet until they could get the deal done – did it.

The sooner the FA or FIFA get some control over Joey Barton, the better it will be for football.

We see that Joey has now apologized to Didi, but that Hamann is considering legal action and could sue Joey for the personal insults he made last night.

Didi should go ahead with that – and maybe it will teach Barton a lesson – maybe.

For the record Did played 31 times with 5 goals for Newcastle in the  1998-1999 season and cost us £5.5M from Bayern Munich, before he was signed by Liverpool for £8M in the summer of 1999.

    I think NUFC is ran very poorly …..for the reason being that throughout all this turmoil, not one person of the club has made a single comment….not one.

    It represents to me that they have little care or notion of responsibility to fans!

    Frankly nobody cares what Joey Barton says or who’s panties he twisted Ed. We should be reading and talking about what the club do now having missed out on Remy. Possible targets, news on Colo? Barton was always and will alkways be a t1t. Its not news.

    That is true but you cant tell me that our players are not thinking “80k a week??” playing against Reading in another relegation battle for 40k a week watching the ball sail over their heads for the whole game

    Really gutted about these turn of events but I do really think we may have dodged a bullet. Don’t know much about remy but there are really conflicting reports online about him. The question is where do we go from here?

    I really think our inability to secure our targets in the summer, hence the league position we are in now, are really why we are in this position now.

    If we were sitting in 6th or 7th where we should be, then I seriously don’t believe the likes of remy would be turning us down even with the amount if money being rumoured for salaries

    This is unfortunately a knock on effect for our failings as a progressive club

    spreadthetoon – I think its because they weren’t sure one way or the other yet, think they were probably still talking to his agent trying to convince him that Newcastle was a better option for him

    It’s gone very quiet about Remy but anything that is happening certainly doesn’t involve us. Let’s hope the club have moved on to other targets. We do have other targets don’t we Derek? Surely one of them has to be a good CB and another a forward/winger? Derek are you paying attention or have you been dipping into the wine with Ash again? Why spoil a good transfer window with unpleasant talk of failed transfers Ash/Llam when you can just get sozzled together.

    Never believed proud from the off, it’s almost like a self defence mechanism I have to believe it when it happens. Tires of building hopes up to be let down. Your move my Ashley, still waiting for the cb and st if you wouldn’t mind. Thanks

    Ibizatoon – Back By Popular Demand; from previous thread. I’ve given that some thought. The maximum limit would be based on the average income of the respective league. Some leagues are bigger and generate more money they would still have the best players and higher earners. It would prevent ridiculous fees and extravagant pay deals. It would probably stop clubs buying players they do not need for example Sinclair at Man City.
    It may even result in cheaper tickets, I doubt though.

    Proud – Well I for one don’t blame you for being wrong – shit happens and you only passed on what you heard. There’s no accounting for the depths floppychops will dredge.

    We MUST have one or two CBs (colo dependent) and one or two forwards

    I’d try for Charlie Austin and PEA (or equivalent) up front and we need two quality CBs- preferably Alderweild quality.
    Sissokho would be a luxury extra but I can’t see him coming to Toon.

    I still feel raw about the Remy episode but think we may well have had a narrow escape.
    I rated Ruiz but he’s not adapted that well and of course got injured. Glad we missed him too.

    I don’t want us to breach our wages cap which I think is sensible but I still blame Robin for his abysmal negotiating. If we don’t get the players we need ‘over the line’ he needs to go right away – and then AP at the end of the season if he doesn’t turn it round. If he does and gets the support he needs from Batman then let’s see him playing the 4-3-3- passing game we want to see all the time.

    And five stories in the last day have said, qpr, 18000 fans blah blah silly money, what do they offer. Now I firmly believe newcastle are a more attractive prospect to any player than qpr. But how did we feel when fergie called us a wee club? It ain’t nice. So stop it. Plus at least Tony Fernandes is showing ambition, Redknapp is a better manager than Pardew, Fernandes and co. fund back their manager in the transfer windows, they at least have the ambition to get out of this hole they are in.. Obviously the business model they have is unsustainable and will inevitably end in bankrupcy and relegation and a mass exodus of players, staff and coaches.. But they pushd harder for the player than we did, move on. Remy is only a d1ck anyway, imagine not showing up in newcastle, no notice of doing it, just leaving nufc to hear it from barton and the media, move on.
