he's an idiot and a piece of sh*t, shame as he's been palying well, I guess he'll get even longer for the next one.

Oh well, it'll save us £50k a week by not paying him.

The big North East Clubs seem to attract their fare share of idiots but Newcastle do seem to attract more, but your right he has been playing well and no doubt, he will still be paid his wages, he will do 3 to 4 months of his 6 and be as fit as fiddle and ready for the new season, his 2nd charge sentence will probably run concurrent (is that the right word Inse?)

surely that would be breaking his contract though? We're not as stupid as you daft gets to pay our player when he can't play. £90k a week to Ferdinand when he 'forgot' the drugs test eh?

that is the right word, but if he gets 6 months for each and behaves himself (if that is possible) then he'll be out in 6. He will be fit and drink free as well so no doubt raring to play again.

So thats him in nick, his brother was arrested as well, and his half brother in nick for murder - nice family then.

from nufc.com:


So once again we make the papers for non-footballing reasons, as the nation's favourite feckless club receives yet more unwelcome and negative media coverage.

The Sun may claim that "an army of fans clamoured for the £5.2million midfielder to be sacked" but if our inbox is anything to go by, then most of you aren't that bothered.

Maybe it's just season-end fatigue, the fact that Barton battered some of his own kind who were similarly on a moonlit stroll, or merely that a prison sentence had been widely predicted since he was banged up in December.

We believe though that the sheer predictability of this happening has bred indifference and the realisation that once again, this is a self-inflicted wound.

As it was when we signed Bowyer, in our eyes we were tainted from the moment Barton put pen to paper - with court action already pending from previous incidents.

And although Bowyer's off-field misadventures took place before his transfer to us, the infamous Villa brawl with Dyer remains one of our blackest days as a club.

Had we not signed either, then we would be safely occupying the moral high ground with the rest of the country and their undisguised glee.

As it is, we're reduced to trying to make sense of yet more of the crap that we're routinely presented and which divides us - we shouldn't be having these struggles.

Going unremarked in all this is Barton filling himself full of drink only hours after being supposedly declared unfit to play - and only two days before our next fixture.

That is as unacceptable to us as his other behaviour.

Other Newcastle players have been in places where and when they shouldn't - but didn't leave evidence in the shape of CCTV footage and hospitalised bystanders....

We'd have a bigger dilemma on our hands if this guy was the heart and soul of our midfield and defined us on the field. That hasn't been the case up until now.

As it is, he's done little to endear himself to the club's fans by his words or actions and there's a part of us that would like to see Barton's contract torn up, regardless of the financial impact to the club.

However that would almost reward the player by making him a free agent, able to sign for anyone at anytime - including whoever Allardyce is managing by then...

Holding his registration until the dust settles and then starting again with him is one possible course of action - if the end game to get rid of him is financially viable.

The media may talk about Keegan's support for Barton being the player's saving grace and sole chance of redemption in terms of his footballing career at SJP.

There's no guarantee though that KK will be the Newcastle boss the next time Barton becomes eligible for selection, which opens up a whole new can of worms (eg: people being offered the job subject to keeping Barton / people accepting the job on condition Barton isn't in the squad?)

Whatever the club opt to do will have a financial cost. Whether the current administration are willing to put a value on taking a moral standpoint is for them to answer - and it's not a decision we particularly envy them.

People can talk about our setting a poor example to youngsters or deterring players from wanting to join us, but we'd been doing both of those things regularly well before Barton and the current owner came to SJP...
