Joey Barton Offers Desperate Response To His Pathetic Behavior Against Lincoln

We all love Joey Barton. Except you, the person probably reading this article.

He didn't exactly cover himself in glory during Burnley's FA Cup game against Lincoln City. Involved in a confrontation with City's mountain of a target man Matthew Rhead. It wasn't the wisest idea he has ever had.

Once Twitter saw the video footage, there was uproar/hilarity at the expense of the midfielder. So of course he was going to respond to the accusations. He chose to do so in the typical Joey Barton way.

Joey of course, takes the nontraditional route of getting around someone - trying to go under their elbow. A brush on his hair was clearly enough to send him down to the floor.



Contact and hit are the key words here. There was minimal contact, and Rhead's elbow didn't move backwards. So far, so typically Barton. But then he went one further.


Apparently, Joey Barton is allowed be pathetic because someone else did it too. That logic of applies to stealing people's sweets. There was just one small problem with the player that held his face as if he'd been struck.

He had been struck. By Barton.




He finished the rant with a swipe at the media for apparently not writing about that incident because ''it wouldn't make a good story''.

Burnley were beaten by Lincoln's only shot on target all game, which made the Imps the first non-league side to reach the FA Cup quarter finals since 1914.

Barton has to keep himself occupied with the Premier League now. Until of course, he goes onto Twitter after another game.
