They got one of those at cadburyheaths ground

I bet they don’t have Championship ready sprinklers though?

Apparently the clubhouse is the size of 2 70’s semi’s.

 I know a few Sags still stuck in the 70’s who get semi’s when City lose.

Having listened to managers that have experience of going in and changing sinking ships they describe the opposite approach. Go in, build confidence, make it enjoyable in training and every point earned is to be encouraged. It seems Barton is the opposite.

Who gives a ****?!

Got plenty of problems here to laugh at those idiots.

 

Ignore the the thread then.

I moaned a lot about being tricked into clicking on misleadingly-titled threads about women's football in the Football section but now that there is a single clearly-titled women's football thread it is easy to avoid and I do so.

(Fair play if people are interested in women's football but I'm not)

Interesting debate about top 10 hard men in football on BBC Sounds - extremely interesting comments about Barton’s character by Alan Shearer and Micah Richards.

Shearer on Joey Barton

"He played for me for about an hour!

"It was disappointing because we had Nicky Butt and Kevin Nolan in midfield who were great lads, brilliant professionals, but didn't have a lot of legs left. We needed legs in midfield and Joey was injured for the first four games of me being the manager. With four games to go we were due to play Liverpool and I said to him earlier in the week: 'How's things going? You're back training with the first team and I am thinking about putting you in'. He said: 'Yep, don't worry about me. I won't let you down, gaffer.'

Training went really well and I decided to put him in the team. We were getting battered off Liverpool. They hit the post, the bar - it should have been seven or eight nil.

"We lost 3-0 and I was about to take him off with five minutes to go. Instead, he decided to scythe Xabi Alonso down in front of the Kop.

"Straight red card. So I had him for about an hour and he couldn't play the last three games because he was suspended.

"There was a huge fight in the dressing room and I never saw him again. He was fighting with himself."

You can see why he is such a perfect fit for Rovers. Looking forward to him accusing himself of being a Ted.

The Micah Richards comment was quite interesting but couldn’t find a transcript of his quote
