Idea of the Weekend

When male athletes say, “We have to play like men.”, they should be forced to clarify what form they are currently inhabiting.

Joey Barton Meltdown of the Weekend

Joey Barton, Marseille (on loan from Queens Park Rangers)

I can’t believe QPR have just been relegated and Boswinga was walking down the tunnel laughing! Embarrassing. Show some guts man…

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013

Gutted for the club. To many wankers amongst the playing staff. All brought in by Hughes. Some good lads but not enough. Too many maggots

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013

Hope they can get a load out, if not they’ll end up in a Wolves situation because trust me that Championship is a f*cking hard league!

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013

Lot of those within that dressing room, have to have a good long look in the mirror. Spoke to a few o the better lads over the course of…

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013

…the season an it seems things just became ridiculous in the end. Its seems an awful lot must change if they are to have any chance…

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013

…of turning it around next year. The club needs to change from top to bottom. I wish them every success in doing that. #QPR

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013

Believe it or not I am actually gutted for QPR. I reckon more than some of the current playing squad.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013

Some good people at that club. They just trusted the wrong people. And got royally fucked over. I did tell them this would happen in August

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 28, 2013
