'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Derby Aftermath - Joe Kinnear

Having held his tongue immediately after the game, Joe Kinnear spoke today about Joey Barton and the overall behaviour of the mackems. Needless to say whilst he was impressed by how Barton kept his cool, he wasn`t overly enamoured by the Wearside Neanderthals. He said:

"He had bottles thrown at him. It was bang out of order - we must keep this out of football,' said Kinnear. All he was guilty of was warming up on the side of the pitch. I felt sorry for him, but thankfully he kept his cool and went on the pitch. He didn't panic and didn't have a grudge against the Sunderland fans. He gets 10/10 for keeping his head.

I have got to do the best I possibly can with the squad I have. I am not going to listen to people or pay lip-service to anybody. I am playing Joey Barton because he is a good player. I am not going to have anybody else tell me different.'

Mr Kinnear has managed some rum players in the past, and Joey Barton is getting some very kind support from him now. The problem is that Joey thrives on last chances and is quite capable of doing something so absolutely stupid tonight that Mr Kinnear will think he has gone from manager of the "Crazy Gang" to senior warder at the funny farm. What's the betting Barton gets himself sent off for dissent, or swearing at fans?

For goodness sake keep Barton away from the Press, or he'll be saying that the only reason that you have climbed up from the relegation places is that he is an inspirational penalty taker.
