Joey Barton’s therapist says he is in for a whole ‘lotta brain re-programming. His flashing-ass is now under the care of the Sporting Chance Clinic in Hampshire, which treats sportspeople with behavioural problems.
For those not in the know, Joey plays for Newcastle United and he got himself into some sort of beat-down situ outside a McDonalds – a little jail time resulted. Please note, this was not the first fists-meet-face incident he has been in.
Mr. B is a bad boy, no doubt, but bad-boy “good”, or bad-boy “you’re a jackass”? You can guess where we stand.
Side note to the Newcastle coaching situation and the various names being thrown around for the open job: we are so over Alan Shearer. Not that we were ever anywhere near being under him, but this pic of Shearer and his old cronie mates in the Caribbean makes our teeth itch. Is it the combined age of 700, or the swimming trunks that gives us the icks? We may never know.

Media call: Anyone in the UK, aged 20-30 interested in doing a (paid) story with a well known, high-circulation tabloid newspaper magazine? We were contacted by a journalist looking for WAGs, ex-WAGs, regular gals and in-betweens, who meet a specific criteria – see below. If you’re up for it, drop us a line asap (via the contact us page) and we’ll forward your details on.
If you used to be a real ‘girl about town’ and live the a high profile life with a high profile partner (footy or otherwise), but have since settled down and now live the simple life miles away from the party scene, or are perhaps running your own business now;
or, if you’re still living the party lifestyle but are starting to get bored of it and find it quite empty, but are addicted to the status of it all.
Note: this isn’t in any way affiliated with Kickette – we’re just the messengers. As such, we promise not to pester, mock nor stalk you if you parlay your tabloid story into a well-paid stint on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
A group of ballers have set up an initiative called A Star to help disadvantaged youths catch a break and get some appreciation for their skills with the goal of opening up ways into employment through sport and other creative activities.
Fitz Hall (who just signed with Queens Park Rangers from Wigan) is the main man behind the venture, and he’s pulled in England strikers Andy Johnson and Emile Heskey who are all doing the “A” sign when they score a goal. Be charitable, and learn about the cause here. Our secret guilty pleasure is watching the numerous naff, controversial and cornball goal celebrations of our favourite ballers, so it’s nice to know this one comes with a good story.
Okay, we’re done with being 1% generous and somewhat thoughtful and non-snarky. That’s like, so 2007. Now on with the photos of Becks in his briefs. Much better.
