Is that him admitting that he shoulder barged his opposing number into a metal structure in the tunnel, against Barnsley..?! 

The bloke is such an utter bellend...!

So is Barton suggesting/hinting his coming together with the ex Barnsley manager was a fair shoulder barge!

Exactly what I was thinking 🤔

“We’re 16th in League Two and we’re playing the bigger sides, the sides that are up near the top of the table and to beat them, all you have to do is keep your discipline. That’s really frustrating because we’re better than these teams - I’ve no doubt about it but if we go down to ten men and we go down to nine men, then it doesn’t matter how much quality you’ve got, you’re not going to win games of football.”

Deluded.

20 points adrift of the vegans!

What a ****.

Recent league matches for them have included Port Vale, Forest Green, Salford City, Tranmere and Northampton.

Whilst Joey's statement is probably true that's some way "off the normal script" for the frothing mutants that inhabit the mem. They are used to be fed a diet of "big club" BS.

it was no more than a shoulder-to-shoulder contact which is something I know all about."

 

Sounds like an admission of something....now what could that be ....hmmmmm???

The bit in bold might just have been me expanding a teeny bit what was in his mind at the time! The problem with Barton is that it is hard to understand anything he comes out with so you can attribute anything to him and it becomes credible!

This was the original article without my interpretation:-

To be honest all the clubs in the 4th Division are big compared to the lockouts.

Tell your players to stop punching & kicking people then, Joey..! 

Lead by example..... Oh, hang on.....!

Sorry… are we all missing the bloke who said he saw him do it?

@Fordy62 did you read about that clever Qc question in Cross examination?

" So you saw the man you say is Joey Barton from behind?" YES

"Did you ever see his face then?" NO

"So how do you know for sure that is was Joey Barton?" I JUST ASSUMED.

"So you just assumed it was my client, but you can't be sure, as you didn't see his face? YES

"No further questions your honour"

You can imagine how that was spun in the defences closing speech.

" Ladies and Gentleman of the jury how can you be sure, when all the witnesses and the complainant himself isn't?"

Everybody knows it was Barton, but what the case need really was CCTV. Without that a clever Silk would always fancy his chances against a prosecution witness.

Hence why we try to minimise their use nowadays.

So when he talks about bigger clubs, is he now talking about the likes of Forest Green Rovers; and Port Vale?

Christ, quite how far have the Gas dropped that their manager considered those type of clubs "Bigger".

What's the plan for next year Joey when the 5 loans, and 15+ players are either OOC or at the end of their 1 year deals. Go.out and buy another 20 players?

They need to build a team, not just employ a group of scousers who used to play for Fleetwood; and are mates with the Manager.

I wasn’t aware. That’s just basics then. Should’ve been all over the statement one way or the other. Poor statement taking.

Do I understand correctly that you try to minimise (avoid) using prosecution witnesses in Court?

If I read your subsequent comments correctly, you (and @Fordy62) are suggesting that the reason is not necessarily that their honesty or credibilty is in question, but, rather, that their evidence is badly presented/substantiated and easily discredited by an experienced QC, at least to the extent that a jury can not be sure beyond reasonable doubt etc.  

Concerning statements, I remember being taught from a very early age that one of the most valuable statements was the very short and brief one that said, effectively, 'I was present, but neither saw nor heard anything'.

Never mind, perhaps JB's next case will yield results as there will be no jury.

Have you ever seen such a nervous, twitchy and unconvincing interview with a supposedly lucid and sober person?

The “body language experts” say that whenever you touch your nose you are lying. Whether you believe this or not, look at how many times he touches his nose when answering questions and whether you are a body language believer or not, it’s certainly far from convincing.

And how often does he raise his head and look straight into the eyes of the camera and/or interviewer?

But somehow he convinced a jury of ten; net of two sendings off, that he was innocent!

Hopefully he will keep convincing the wheel of fortune that he is the right man for the job for some time to come, or at least until the next court appearance.

Pointless fact but there’s a small difference. Apparently, it’s less so about actually touching your nose and more so covering your mouth (although usually done by pretending to touch your nose).

Children literally cover their mouth with their hands when they’re lying, and it just becomes more subtle as you age.

Eleven dog-fiddlers went to play

For Relegation Rovers,

Eleven men, ten men, nine men

..... and their dog !

 

 

Maybe Darrell's and their warped affinity for dogs is why they're called "Rovers" - (remember the greyhounds? )

That's probably why Darrell was so pleased to go back there last night.
