Villa Do Not Need Scum Like Joey Barton

Villa Do Not Need Scum Like Joey Barton

The Daily Mirror have an 'exclusive' by Darren Lewis today.

The report claims that Villa are wanting to take 26-year-old Joey Barton from Newcastle as a long term replacement for Gareth Barry

The former Manchester City midfielder faces the FA today and could be banned for up to 12 games for his assault on Ousmane Dabo.

The report says 'Mirror Sport understands Villa boss Martin O'Neill sees Barton as a long-term replacement for Gareth Barry after fending off Liverpool's summer bid to sign the England midfielder. But O'Neill is clearly planning for the future as it is thought Liverpool will make a new bid in January.'

They also say that Villa and an unnamed club expressed an interest in Barton on the close of play in the summers transfer window.

Err, I don't actually think we did. So maybe I should come out with a 'Vital Villa understands that Villa boss is not lining up Barton and that Villa do not expect to sell Gareth Barry in the January transfer window. Vital Villa also understands that Villa weren't one of the two clubs - if indeed there were any clubs at all - expressing an interest in the scummiest piece of work within football.'

I've got to ask, why would Villa want Barton? He is a thug. Not only a thug but a thick thug who has had more chances than someone who has had loads of chances. In fact he has had more chances than Mr Chance from Chanceville (not to be confused with Chancevilla). He also told Martin O'Neill to f*** off when MON said something to him whilst he was playing for Man City, that surely won't have gone unnoticed!

IF we did go for him, I would certainly think twice about attending games, I wouldn't want one penny of my money supporting someone like that. Stubbing out a cigarette in a youth players eye? No thanks. Assaulting a fellow team mate? No thanks. Getting chance after chance and still blowing it - and slapping his current club in the face - by assaulting someone else and going to prison? No thanks.

He'd be the only player in the claret and blue that I would happily join in with the opposition fans to boo. As said, if I was there. You have to think of the character and history of our club, we don't and never have traded in thugs?

Why start now?

I have faith we won't. If we do, then maybe it will be Stockport County for me until he departs!

I sometimes wish I could come off the fence a little and have an opinion either way!

I wouldn't go as far to say signing Barton would stop me going to games, but... well, no thanks, we dont need scum like that at the mighty Villa!

You forgot to mention that aside from him being a waste of space he isnt even that good of a footballer. He shone in a poor city side and thats it. Even if he wasnt a **** I would not be happy bringing someone of his quality into our already full CM.

I think he is a very talented lad. But the sad thing is he is a complete and utter thug. Not the personality we need at our club. If MON could work some sort of magic, no some sort of miracle then he would be an incredible signing, but i dont think we should take such a risk, there are other players out there who dont like to assault their team mates and fans!!!

If he did sign, i would still go to watch the team, no-one in the world can ever change that, least of all this scum, shame on you Fear saying you would. Like he matters, in the grander scheme of things?

So little Barton the faggot reckons he's a big man then does he? I'd look forward to re-educating him in a dark B'ham alley. (Not in a homosexual sense of course). Crap footballer and has the sort of face you just have to punch. He'd upset our happy dressing room and Carew and Harewood would just end up killing him. He has no respect for anyone, and to tell someone of Martin O' Neill's stature to 'F Off', he doesn't know much about football either. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. I WILL CHAIN MYSELF TO THE TRINITY RD GATES IN PROTEST. NAKED.

Soory young jonah you are wrong. Sometimes in life one has to draw a line and say 'no further'. I am sure that for many Villa supporters signing Barton would be it. I, for one could not image any of my cash contributing in any way to rewarding him. That said, I cannot image MON or Randy ever countenancing Barton becoming a Villa player, anyway we have better CM's than him inour team. As The Fear says, we don't need him.
