Nice easy and quick article here. Having watched the replays of the Villa v Newcastle game on Match of the Day, all I can say is get this thug Joey Barton out of the game.
There is no place for people like him and according to the Sunday Mirror today he will face trial by video for taking a swing at our very own Shaun Maloney - who to his credit didn't whinge, whine or complain to the referee, how differently other players would have reacted!
Barton has been given chance after chance and still can't control his behaviour, he does no credit at all to Newcastle United - how they must rue the day former manager Big Sam Allardyce (who today is quoted in the papers saying he was too big for Newcastle!) asked to sign the trouble making thug.
He is already up for charges of actual bodily harm and affray following an incident in Liverpool. Assault on a field of play is just the same as assault off the field.
Get rid and lets hope the FA slap on a 10 game ban.
