Can we ban Joey Barton from football now, please?
Newcastle star still failing to learn from his mistakes
Less than two weeks ago, dangerous criminal Joey Barton had the audacity to tell the world that he wanted to become a role model for those who have also sunk to his depths. To his credit, he hasn’t beaten any colleagues or defenseless teenagers unconscious since making the statement, but he has riled up Sunderland fans with some unnecessary badge kissing, and embroiled himself in a racism complaint.
Should Aston Villa’s legal advisors find that Barton made racist gestures towards Gabriel Agbonlahor on Monday (A lip reading expert claims he shouted “F*ck your big lips” after slapping him in the face), then the FA and Newcastle must act. It is clear that Barton is unable to learn his mistakes or his punishments, and a man who is so inclined to vile behaviour shouldn’t be rewarded with £63,000 a week and a dream job.
Do you agree, or should we give the misunderstood lad his 456th second chance? Let us know with a comment below.
