Joey makes TOTW

Joey makes TOTW

Latest press release from Actim about our Scouse scrapper:

Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton was rewarded for his match-winning display against Fulham with a place in The Actim Index team of the week, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League. Barton held his nerve to slot in a late penalty and earn three more points for his side but his overall display produced 37 points - the most for a midfielder over the last week.

Barton`s injury-hit campaign has left him in the lower reaches of the Index but his performance at Craven Cottage saw him climb 58 places to 216th overall, averaging around 10 points per appearance for the Magpies. Newcastle currently have three players in the top 100, James Milner (52nd), Obafemi Martins (90th) and Nicky Butt (96th).

Analysis of all Premiership games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:

Name Team Overall Ranking Index Score
Mark Schwarzer Middlesbrough 110th 24
William Gallas Arsenal 67th 32
Paul Scharner Wigan Athletic 152nd 32
Danny Higginbotham Sunderland 118th 26
Luke Young Middlesbrough 71st 24
Joey Barton Newcastle United 216th 37
Stewart Downing Middlesbrough 59th 33
Denny Landzaat Wigan Athletic 150th 32
Martin Petrov Manchester City 4th 28
Marcus Bent Wigan Athletic 105th 68
Roque Santa Cruz Blackburn Rovers 12th 51

The Actim Index is calculated using a unique mathematical formula that rates each player`s contribution be it goals, shots, passes, dribbles, tackles, crosses, saves, clearances, blocks, interceptions, assists, clean sheets, time on the pitch or number of points gained by the team with marks deducted for red and yellow cards.

Had a great game - can't believe he's only got 6% of the MOTM vote so far.
