Joey Barton doesn’t make things easy for himself does he! After getting sent off for elbowing Carlos Tevez he then lashes out at Sergio Agüero and seems it fit to use the excuse that one of his teammates said to him that if they are a man down maybe he should take one of theirs out too! I mean where is the logic in that, really I mean just how stupid is he?
Later on in the evening during Match of the Day Barton obviously also didn’t like how Alan Shearer was “on his case” launching into him on twitter. Here is a run down of the evening of abuse and excuses from Joey7Barton4hr Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton Can do nothing but apologise to the players and the fans. Still don’t think its a sending off. Tried to take 1 of their players with me…. 4hr Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton The head was never gone at any stage, once I’d been sent off, one of our players suggested I should try to take 1 of theirs with me… 4hr Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton Think a few people are forgetting Tevez started the fracas by throwing a punch to the head…? 1hr Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton Shearers still on my case…”I know I f*cked up Alan, thanks for stating the obvious.” 1hr Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton Whilst were both stating the obvious about each other, can I just say for the record what a great player u were. Well better me… 1h Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton But I have a better hair(which is not hard), wear well better shirts on TV and have a personality(something u lack). 54m Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton I really don’t like that prick, in fact I honestly despise him… Goodnight 38m Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton I’d take it off Hansen and @GaryLineker but not from that bell, same fella that stamped on Neil Lennon,then threatened FA if they banned him 37m Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton …That he would retire from international football. No sorry, not having him, never have. Selfish, boring man him. He can do one… 29m Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton My favourite memory of him though is when he dropped his spuds when Keano put it on him. Goodnight Al, sleep well matey… 1s Joseph Barton @Joey7Barton With that my #shearerrant is over… Goodnight all xxxxxx
