Today’s “pseudo-intelligent” tweets from Burp favourite Joey Barton reveal the currently suspended Queens Park Rangers midfielder’s dislike for the diminutive form of his name, apparently forced upon him by a conspiring mass media.

He even goes so far as to declare:

…if you call me Joey when we meet. I will instantly in my head be thinking, “What a f*cking bellend this cat is!”

Following several hints from his 1.5m+ followers, @Joey7Barton soon realises that he may need to change his Twitter handle.

Get a glimpse into the player’s mind below:
