Apparently We're Going To Bid For Joey Barton!

Apparently We're Going To Bid For Joey Barton!

Sam Allardyce is being linked with a move for that lovely Joey Barton character. Our friend Joe has been suspended by Newcastle after his shocking tackle on Alonso at the weekend and now the Toon are keen to off-load friendly Joe with Rovers one of the clubs listed as interested.

According to reports in the newspapers this morning, Newcastle are looking at the possibility of terminating Super Joe's contract.

Barton was confronted by Alan Shearer after the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool and Joey's response to Alan was that he is "A s*** manager with s*** tactics". Iain Dowie is said to have tried to intervene, before Barton turned on the assistant manager calling him a 'p****`.

This guy would make El hadji Diouf look like a Salvation Army worker.

Allardyce has previously worked with Barton having signed him for Newcastle for £5.8 million, but he does have a good history of getting the best out of difficult characters - Diouf amongst them.

Either way do we really need Joey Barton?!

not sure that we need someone who is a very talented player but a liability and on big wages! Is this really what we need?

Please god, no. He isn't that good a player, and certainly not the kind of person we need to be associated with. Absolute thug. Still, maybe he's just what Allardyce is looking for. Having said that, I don't believe that he is wrong about Shearer, and I am glad that it wasn't Shearer we chose as manager. He was a great player for us, but I've never been convinced he has so much between his ears.

Guys i am not sure he will be available for next season. Because, 2 summer months is a long time and is certainly enough to murder someone and get yourself into jail.
