Watch: Trailer Released For Documentary On Joey Barton's Debut Season In Management

Fleetwood Town have had a remarkable rise in recent years, rising through the divisions before finding themselves in League One since the 14/15 season. In their attempts to climb even higher in the football pyramid, they got Joey Barton in as manager. Risky.

If you lay awake at night wondering what it would be like to be in a dressing room led by the former Manchester City mustachio himself, then wonder no more. Fleetwood have released the trailer for their in-house documentary on Barton's debut season as manager, and it looks surprisingly entertaining.


Despite Barton being an obvious tosser, he does have some quite candid quotes about his past and how football offered an escape for him. He also has some nice cheesy lines for the cameras. Perhaps the best (and funniest) quote is his synopsis on how he made it as a footballer:

I couldn't run, never had a bit of pace or a skill. I just never did it, because if I done it I'd have been playing fucking Sunday league. I took the ball off better players than me, and I gave it to better players than me, and I made a career out of it.

Simple as that gets. Im not too proud to fucking admit that, that's all I did. That's all I did.

Don't forget laying into a few lads Joey. That attitude was passed onto his players, who attempt to batter each other at one stage.

Of course, due to recent developments this could be Barton's last season at Fleetwood. He allegedly assaulted Barnsley manager Daniel Stendel after a meeting between the two clubs, with rumours circulating that he knocked two of Stendel's teeth out. Barton denies all allegations.

Despite this, it has been an ok season for Fleetwood. They currently sit in 11th place having finished 14th last term. They reached the playoffs the season before that, and will be hoping for a repeat performance next season. Whether Barton will be there to oversee that remains to be seen.
