Ex-jailbird involved in minor on-pitch scuffle

Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton flexed his muscles during last night’s victory over Aston Villa by scuffling with renowned football hardman Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Magpies coach Chris Hughton said: “Any incident regarding Joey is going to be blown up twice as much as it’s going to be with any other player. I wasn’t aware of any incident with Joey at all.”

    truth is , this guy should feel lucky to still be able to play in the premier league. He is nothing but an infectious nuisance. Just seeing him on the pitch makes me want to vomit.
    They say god has a plan for everyone , but I really don’t see what God’s plan was for Barton and his younger brother who apparently was involved in some vicious acts of human torture and vandalism.
