Thread: Joey Barton assault

  1. #21
    But basically we know the outcome don’t we?

    The whole thing will be played down, Barton gets a wrist slap.

    Football being a “special case” detached from the real world

    I can understand the red mist descending when you are out there on the field .

    I played the game myself for enough years to know that it happens , an elbow or a player leaves one on you , part and parcel of the game .

    Managers or Coaches are different , heated words fair enough with the guys in the other technical area , a bit of handbags ..... fair enough .

    However Barton crossed a line today , a line that I can't remember ever getting crossed before in english football .

    His team today in the first half were chasing shadows and two goals down , he sent them out in the second half to kick us off the park , it wasn't long before their centre half got a straight red .

    Our lads took it well and kept their discipline which was huge credit to them given the average age of the team is 22 years old .

    Barton couldn't take it , not man enough to accept his teams lack of talent and the fact our lads weren't intimidated by his teams tactics .

    He clearly had to walk out of Oakwell with some kind of badge , a badge that only his upbringing and family in Huyton find acceptable .

    It's a repeat story , his previous tells you that , the game doesn't need Joey Barton and his fuqed up issues in his head .

    I sincerely hope I never see you inside a football stadium again in a working capacity .

    Apparently the police are going to speak to him sometime next week in a "voluntary" interview, is this normally the case when an assault is suspected?

    The covering up has already started, tweet from a Barnsley player reporting the incident has already been deleted. Fleetwood playing the no comment card.

    Having read his book and the environment he grew up in , his brother's conviction for murder and all the other bits and bobs I gave Barton a bit of slack .

    I also remember watching him on QT and thinking he wasn't as green as he was cabbaged .

    How wrong was I .

    We don't really know what happened yet do we though. It doesn't sound good but he's been convicted of 'something' on here already but no one,s quite sure what it is. Let's wait and see first

    With regard to his upbringing I don,t buy that at at. We all know people who had a really tough upbringing but there,s only a minority that go out an commit crimes. I'm talking in general here and not about what JB may or may not have done.

    I get how a punch or a kick, definately an elbow or a knee in the mouth can knock teeth out but a head but knocking teeth out is a great shot!

    He must have broke his nose or chin to get through to the teeth and dislodge them. Unless he has a pertruding part to his head. Most think JB is a dck head so mayne that's it!

    or Stendel's teeth are dentures.

    Give people a chance to report on it, obviously Fleetwood will make a statement when they have spoke to certain parties about it.

    Itsnin one of today’s papers with a picture , police stopping Barton from leaving

    What a legend! The game lacks a true pantomime villain, he is it. He deserves another chance, it was just a blip..

    Will he be kicked out or get away with it is the question, nothing surprises me with EFL and clubs anymore, respect has certainly gone.

    There's certainly a lot of backpeddling going off. I reckon the EFL are waiting to let the dust settle, draw it out and give Barton a soft landing.

    This sort of stuff used to happen all the time in football but there were less cameras about back then. Ask Phil Crosby, Imre Varadi, Tommy Tynan and Archie gemmill. Read Stan Ternent's book, he talks in length about how he took Blackwell down, listen to the Undr the Cosh podcasts, its a physical sport with tensions running high. When they shook hands at the final whistle the Barnsley manager was obviously saying something to Barton, it appears to me that his mouth wrote cheques that he couldn't cash and Barton rearranged his teeth. Was it an unprovoked attack or a fight that Barton came out best in?

    Somehow I cant see it being a defensive assault seeing that Barton is involved.

    Maybe words were said but to assault a person for words is just pathetic, be the bigger man

    You have no idea what happened Millertop and although Barton has a colourful past, that does not mean 100% that he was the aggressor in this case. I was once attacked in Rotherham for no reason whatsoever and the other lad ended that tussle with less teeth than he started it with. By your rationale, I was 100% to blame.
