Joey Barton forced to pay £65,000 for cigar assault

THE former Manchester City trainee who had a cigar stubbed out in his face by bad-boy Joey Barton has been awarded £65,000 in an out-of-court compensation deal. Blues rookie Jamie Tandy made a civil claim for damages against Barton, who assaulted the youngster at City's Christmas party in 2004.

sag, 

1. Sink, subside or bulge downwards under weight or pressure or through lack of strength. 

2. Decline to a lower level, usually temporarily *

And 3. (From the Oxford online 'learner' dictionary) to hang or bend down in the middle, especially because of weight or pressure, a sagging roof. 'The tent began to sag under the weight of the rain'**. 'Her shoulders sagged in defeat' ***.

 

"The tent began to sag because of the weight of the rain/League One"

 

So, sag: sink, subside, decline, down.****

 

 

 

 

 

 

* "usually"

** not made up. 

***I bet they did. "Goodnight," love.

****and "tent"

Some breakfast listening for you. You are welcome.

Thanks.

The guy at 12:30 minute sums up Basement Bristol Rovers:

"They are failing the fans, they are failing the city" - Wrong. You are not failing the City, we are delighted with this result, you did so well for us boys, the lot of you, from your owner down to all your awful managers and useless players.

"They are an absolute disgrace" - Agreed. BBRFC is a disgrace, and has been since at least 1982

"Not going to bounce back despite our deluded fans thinking we will" - Agreed, your fans are very deluded, and your not going to bounce back with that squad.

Its a lovely day out there, enjoy the 2 division gap everyone!

It's been so sudden at the bottom of L1. Nearly everyone's burst to life.  Rochdale have won 9 points in a week and Wigan and the Dons have both earned a quarter of our total points for the season in the last week and a half!

Perfect storm for Rovers who've responded by imploding. Exciting nail biting stuff for the rest of us.

This is all very good fun, but with our squad for next year after being asset stripped i don’t expect to see us to be doing much better than that lot have done this year.

Yep- I can certainly see us finishing bottom of league one next season..

**** off.

Anyone else hoping they win their next 2 games 2-0 and everyone above them loses....and then they win their final match with Wigan behind in the 93rd minute before an inexplicable Swindon own goal rescues a point for the Latics and sends the six fingered cousin lovers down?

They say it's the hope that kills ya.  They'd be celebrating and celebrating only to come crashing down to earth!

Can’t be arsed to listen to their sad tales but what they cannot comprehend is that for the overwhelming majority of this city they simply no longer matter.

Pre pandemic they were often getting crowds of 6,500, since that time their on field performances have declined, so they would be lucky to get that now.

Despite the media locally still giving them false equivalence (equal coverage, this “blue half of Bristol” utter myth) aside from very very few, no one is remotely interested in them.

I said last week I genuinely can not recall the last time I saw anyone wearing a replica shirt of theirs.

We averaged 22,000 in the last season crowds were allowed, I doubt very much we would do so next season even if possible but truth is for anyone writing another of those articles about Bristol’s inability to punch its weight, we are the only game in town now, they are slowly dying.

Nope 

infact , I’ll add to that. I hope they get smashed every game , giving them little to hope for next season . Never forget their actions in 82 

Hope they go bust

The dream scenario would be for them to implode before then, Wally and Barton to leave and them not be able to field a team........ I guess last night has elevated the dream level, who’d have expected that set of results!

Where’s that Weezord belter these days?

Funny how the team he claimed to support (Pompey) could make relegation a mathematical certainty for the team he didn’t have the balls to admit supporting (the Gas) this Saturday.

 

He was a complete tool. We have had some good posters from the other side in the past and @In the Netis always welcome (especially these days!)

If Paul Tisdale had come in and said:

Previous Manager would have been struck off if he was a Doctor

Medical Staff all getting bombed out at the end of the season

Players not even trained properly

I have a load of unprofessional, tobacco chewing cluckers in my squad (although I might smoke a nice fat Cuban later and stub it out in an U23 player's eyes)

I have single figures players worth keeping

I can't turn water into wine

It would have been easier on myself if I never took this job

etc etc.

he would have been destroyed by the Tent Polers. Instead, because it's Joey Barton saying it, this is exactly what has been needed apparently. The interesting thing for me is what Wally does if Barton goes down for say 9 months in the Summer, relatively short term but slightly too long ideally to bring in a Temporary Manager (bear in mind no time off for good behaviour on sentences under a year).

He may as well be temporary.....

They struggle to get one appointment right (including him) so they've got absolutely no hope of appointing someone on a temporary basis.

By my maths haven’t we now guaranteed ourselves another 800 odd days above them?

I haven't worked it out but less than that I would think. Worst case scenario is we get relegated next season and they get promoted, they have a better opening game than us in the 22/23 season. Whats that, about 500 days?

From and including: Wednesday, 21 April 2021
To, but not including Wednesday, 10 August 2022

Result: 476 days

It is 476 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date.

Or 1 year, 3 months, 20 days excluding the end date.

Or 15 months, 20 days excluding the end date.

 

So that'll be 7953 days, IF we were to get relegated and they went up AND got a better result than us on the opening day.

Or 27 months, 20 days excluding the end date.

Yes but they could (I am sure they won't) be back above us in August next year. Using your maths, that could be 841 -365 = 476?

Funnily enough, Tisdale got sacked for saying he couldn’t pull a rabbit out of a hat in regards to making their strikers better. 
 

Barton has gone in with the big I am despite achieving nothing as a manager, and tbh nothing as a player as well. The ego on him is unreal. He’s gonna really struggle to get another job off the back of this.

What I find odd is that on GasChat not one person is calling out Wael.  As they say, the fish rots from the head, and although he’s chucked some money into pay debts and buy a “training ground” the culture at Rovers from top to bottom is clearly a mess and culture stems from the leaders of your organisation.  Players being unprofessional, managers being unprofessional, terrible stadium, terrible recruitment, they are an utter utter shambles.  What a shame 😂

Indeed. Take Barton's mouth and persona away and what are you left with? 

He's living off his celebrity status there, and absolutely nothing else. 

If he was "Joe Bloggs", an up and coming coach, plucked from some outpost, the sags wouldn't tolerate another minute of him. But because he gives them more profile than they've had in decades, he can stay.

Remarkably, he did get one England cap.

It's because he mentions their "incredible fanbase" that's all he needs to do in their eyes.
