Successful Attention-Seeker of the Week

Joey Barton, Queens Park Rangers

Rooney is our best player at the moment. Put in context for me, by my definition of 'World Class', he isn't. I'm sorry thats my belief.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 3, 2014

He is infinitely better than me. That is not the debate here. But I was never World Class, so people are missing the point.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 3, 2014

Now shall I tell you what World Class is for me. Ronaldo and Messi. Iniesta and Suarez. WC is a term thrown about far too often.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 3, 2014

Maybe Wayne was has been in WC bracket before. I would have to say now he isn't. Why? Well it isn't for the lack of talent IMO.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 3, 2014

I would have to argue that he has not been better since he broke on the scene at Everton. For me thats when he stopped developing or just..

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 3, 2014

…afterwards. As I say, he is a top player. My favourite of the current bunch. Love watching him. Old school. But not World Class IMO.

11 years this Saturday since I made my Premier League debut. You don't have the career I'm having unless you are exceptional at your sport.
