barton v everyone
Joey Barton, hailing from the borough of Drop-Trow has beef with several individuals.
He thinks England skipper Steve McClaren should drop Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard and let him get bi-zay on the England squad instead -the next England game is a friendly against Spain in Feb ‘07.
He’s released a rampage of high quality fightin’ words…
“I wouldn’t be like Lampard or Gerrard, who are superstars at their clubs and want the limelight at England.“
“I look at top footballers these days and they’ve lost touch with reality.“
“I’d say 90 per cent of them are from working class backgrounds but they play 100 games in the Premiership, get the car and the house and think they?re upper class. They surround themselves with hangers-on who tell them how wonderful they are every minute of the day and they lose any kind of perspective.“
Joey, honey? Look, well done on speaking your mind and the anger management classes and all that, but any more ish from you about spoiled, rich ballers living large, buying a seat on the nouveau riche train to glory and you’ll get a very pointy Choo in the eye.
