Video: Manchester City players Gareth Barry, Adam Johnson, Joe Hart and Shay Given get drunk with a group of students
Blues on the booze
There is not too many Premier League footballers with university degrees, but that didn’t stop the Manchester City quartet of Gareth Barry, Adam Johnson, Joe Hart and Shay Given wanting to hunt for that authentic student experience this week.
The players were in St Andrews, Scotland, to play golf on Monday following their 3-0 defeat to Arsenal at the weekend. After packing their putters away, the group sought clubs of a different sort.
For reasons best known to themselves, they ended up in the kitchen of student digs surrounded by a mob of chanting teenagers.
The pinnacle of the video has to be drunken Gareth Barry’s battle cry:
“We’ve come along way. It’s windy. It been raining. We’re in St Andrews. Let’s party!”
One student told The Sun: “They were drinking and signing autographs for everyone. Joe Hart was throwing £50 notes around like confetti.
“The flat where we partied was like any student digs, with mouldy food and a fridge packed with beer. For some reason we spent most our time packed in the kitchen singing, and telling the players how great they were.”
The footage is Joe Hart’s second embarrassing boozy video of the month.
