Barton drops his first bollock

Barton drops his first bollock

He`s alienated fans at Man City in the past and now Joey Barton has made his first cock-up at SJP. Speaking in the wake of last week`s Liverpool debacle he`s come out and criticised the fans for voicing their opinion at what was simply a joke performance. Barton should be on the receiving end of a fierce reaction at Ewood today from an anticipated 6,000 fans. Perhaps not the best time to go on records and voice disapproval. Barton said:

"I've not yet seen the famous crowd I was expecting to hear get behind us. Instead it has been vicious; I don't think I've heard a crowd that vicious. Last Saturday I was sitting on the bench - and after 20 minutes I had picked up on it. It shocked me. The fans want success and they want it straight away, but unless they change that mentality and start supporting the side through poor results then things won't change.

Unless there's a massive change, it's going to be the same for this manager, the next manager and whoever comes in after that. If it continues, when the manager goes for players, they will go somewhere else rather than jump in the frying pan. Sam's a good manager. He's getting the brunt of the criticism but doesn't deserve it. Not many managers can turn a club round in five minutes.'

You have a great point here, alienating yourself from the fans is no way to go about trying to improve the relationship, but he has also got a point too, a very good one. And at the end of the day, you, the fans will always be at your club, he won't. So why don't you just face facts and realise you are vicious, you are far too knee jerk and far too fickle. Best support in the land my arse!
