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?!
