Club resolve Barton future

Having seen the matter of all speculation focused on the club since Barton`s release yesterday, generally featuring lesser terms of endearment such as 'gutter`, 'sewer`, 'monster` and 'cigar stubbed out in face`, the club moved to close off any further chatter on the subject with an abrupt statement this afternoon:

'Newcastle United officials can confirm they have met with Joey Barton, following which it has been agreed by everyone involved that Joey will remain with the club. The club will not be making any further comment at this time.'

Moralists will shout from the rooftops but realists will be glad the club saw sense. Rehabilitation is the only way we`ll get any money or return back from the expensive Scouse Hannibal Lector and, with the club looking as attractive to new players as Vanessa Feltz spread-eagled this summer, we just need people who are capable of pulling on the shirt.

Loathe or loathe Barton at least he might keep his head down and do a job for us. Hopefully. Kev deserves some payback for his sheer persistence in sticking out this bugger of a summer.

Why are you keeping him??
Fan of Blues
WHY is anyone surprised we are keeping Barton???? I mean we all knew after he beat the tar out of some teenager he was going to go to jail, and keegan came right after and said he'd give him one more chance and the club did too. Thats why he kept playing when he got bail

so is it really one last chance or more guff?

No bluff this time. I think it sticks in Ashley's throat we didn't sack him this time round. Any stepping out of line and I don't think Taylor at the PFA can cry foul.

More chances than a cat lying about how many lives it has used up!
