Joey Barton Has His Say On Pardew Headbutt

8 years ago

It was maybe a no-brainer that Joey Barton would have his say on the Alan Pardew headbutt incident.

Maybe it also is no surprise to see what side of the fence he has come down on.

Interesting to see Barton speak so highly of his ex-manager, whilst having yet another dig at Mike Ashley.

I’ve also just looked out of the window and indeed – ‘…the world hasn’t ended’.

This is Joey’s take on the situation via Twitter in the order they went out –

‘Oh Pards! Nooooooo!’

‘I bet its nothing’

‘Seen Pardew incident. As per usual. Massively over-hyped…’

‘Don’t let a couple of stupid incidents detract from the job he has done at Newcastle. Especially with what goes on behind the scenes there.’

‘Got a lot of time for Pardew. Regardless of what people think, he is a top manager. One of the best I’ve worked with.’

‘After sleeping on it, still think Pardew incident is blown way out of context. I see the media are having a feeding frenzy.’

‘Whilst, I agree its not great for manager of such a great club to act that way, he has admitted he was wrong and been fined accordingly.’

‘Just looked out of the window and the World hasn’t ended. Don’t forget, ‘Its only a game.’’
