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

Barton chatter

Speaking to the Sunday Sun Joey Barton gave us another exciting update of his life as a Newcastle player. I pretty certain that if the lad spent the time he spent doing interviews on shooting practice we`d have the Scouse Kaka playing for us:

'There was no way in the world I thought coming here was going to be a bed of roses. In an ideal world it would run smoothly, but that never happens at any football club. And that type of adversity is all part of the challenge of turning this club around.

'My first challenge is to play well and score goals for this football club, but this is also a group of men who need inspiring. I have to step up to the plate. Hopefully there are seven or eight of us who will be thinking the same.'

Blue is the colour
Won´t it be fairly hard for him to "step up to the plate" and to score goals when he´s in the drunk tank?

Newcastle and England midfielder Joey Barton has been remanded in custody charged with assault. The 25-year-old is accused of common assault and affray and appeared before Liverpool magistrates following an incident in the city's Church Street. He was arrested on Thursday with his brother Andrew, 19, and Nadine Wilson, 27, from Huyton, Merseyside. The player will reappear on 3 January and misses Newcastle's matches against Chelsea and Manchester City. The court was told that Barton and a group of friends were allegedly involved a row with another group inside a McDonald's restaurant at 0530 GMT on Thursday. Mr Barton, of Widnes, Cheshire, was remanded in custody by magistrate Carol Myers. The England midfielder was one of three people arrested The case is due back before the same court on 3 January, when Mr Barton is expected to appear again. A spokesman for Newcastle United said the club was not making any comment about the hearing. Mr Barton's brother, Andrew, 19, of Widnes, is charged with actual bodily harm and affray.
