what a tard i am.
He's clearly mental, it's only a matter of time before he kills someone/
but yeah you are right
joey barton is my new hero
because I don't think he has the requisite cognitive mechanisms.
I've heard that. Because he's the first one in his family to have left school without a police escort.
he is a complete waste of space
newcastle should get rid of him (not for this, but because of his general attitude)
of professionalism, both on and off the field, since this incident
I hope he's allowed to do his time and return to action when able
from receiving adequate support and guidance
these pricks earn that in about 3 hours.
I'm torn between the idea that all should be equal in the eyes of the law and the American concept that fines should be proportionate according to the money that the offender has available to them.
is probably proportional to the time taken for the person receiving it to 'earn' it
I'd let someone punch me in the mouth for two and a half grand. Easy money.
I still really like him. I think it's great that he speaks completely openly and honestly in a sport overrun with PR teams and cliches. And he's a bright guy too. Just obviously has a serious anger problem, which he's shown a desire to get help with for some time. Good luck to him.
Barton gets a hell of a lot of Daily Mail-esque "string him up" stances from the people on these boards. I'd expect a bit more of an understanding attitude to his obvious mental issues (which he seems to be trying to overcome) rather than all this demonisation
And lets be fair here - despite his obvious issues you can't say that the other people involved in the case were helpless puppies viciously attacked by a rabid mongrel. I seem to remember there being a strong case for provocation, something to do with them mentioning his murderer half brother, and even so it's fairly believable that the "attacked" were itching for a fight or were knowingly attempting to enrage him. Similiar cases for provocation were put forwards for the Dabo/cigar incident as well
He's no angel of course, but he does seem to be demonised by various sections of the public and press
during training at City?
for that I think he's due in court in June for that!
I remember reading about the club lawyers trying to get it put back so it didn't mess up our season
