You knew it had to happen

Rovers have been linked with a loan move for QPR outcast Joey Barton.

Barton is about to start a 12 match ban after behaving like a royal moron in the last game of last season at Manchester City and having being disciplined internally by the club as well QPR are now looking to loan him out to the Championship in a bid to run his extensive exclusion from the game down... and we are apparently leading the chase.

In the Championship Barton wouldn't be able to play until late October but the chance to have a box to box midfielder in the ranks would appeal given the lack of legs that currently reside in the Rovers midfield.

The link to Barton has surfaced as a result of uncertainty in the move for Sporting Lisbon's Adrien Silva who has caused mass confusion by telling half the world he wants to move to Rovers and then spinning round to tell the other half that he is happy to stay in Portugal.

If the move for Barton does materialise I would love to be a fly on the wall when he is reacquainted with Morten Gamst Pedersen.

Oh the fun they would have.

You would think the last thing the manager would want is more trouble and strife in the squad.

You know what if he didn't have that ban i'd take him, he's a good footballer but troubled thats the only problem, yet again he could ***** Steve Kean :P

He is a good footballer but he is a total idiot. Do we need another one we already have Mr Kean... I don't think I'd take this option unless Silva is 110% out of reach and still I'd rather not have Barton

Silva has said he is staying in Portugal. Rovers know this but are not prepared to state it. They probably want to get Barton signed, then they can say that he was the better option of the two, nonsense Silva over Barton any day.

Barton may be a good footballer but I hope he goes and plays his football somewhere else. It is not worth the risk. He is not just unpopular, like Savage or Diouf, he is a thug and a criminal. Barton can do serious damage to a club with his actions, both on (down to 10 men in games) and off the field (in the dressing room and in night clubs etc.). It's one thing declaring you are a fan of a club with an unpopular manager (usually provokes sympathy) another when you support a club with Bartons disgraceful record playing for you. As everyone (except Kean) realises it is much more important to get on with sorting out the defence than signing this thug. Givet's situation needs solving asap and at least one other defender is urgently needed. If our transfer business is over, then even if the new signings turn out to be fantastic and we score more goals than any other club, we will be leaking at the back again, the same as last season. Clean sheets are essential for any club expecting to gain promotion.

Rovers now state that they have "distanced themselves" from this. Thank Goodness.
