You wouldn't like him when he's angry

Premier League Blackburn Rovers

So Big Sams masterplan to **** off Roberts so much that he regains his goal scoring ability has paid dividends.

2 winning goals from off the bench in the last 2 games (It would have been 3 if not for Ancelottis evil plan to change the earths gravitational shift just as Jason was about to let rip against Chelsea)

Well done that man. I've never doubted you...

Redpenrod -- spot on absolutely spot on about Ryan Giggs the so called Personality of the year --a cockroach has more Charisma than Giggs....
-----------------------------------------------

Again, another idiot who takes the word 'personality' literally. It's the longer version of 'person' if that makes sense, it's so that the award is gender-neutral.

The award is not for 'Most Charismatic Individual' or 'Most Entertaining Clown of the Year'

If it was the second, I think you might be in with a chance of winning it. No need for a ridiculous pop at Giggs, one of the best British footballers of the past 20 years, on a Newcastle v Blackburn thread.

How can the FA issue a three match ban to Joey Barton for a punch/push while Nigel de Jong goes unpunished by the FA for breaking Hatem Ben Arfa's leg?

-----------------

How about tackling is allowed in the game and punching people isn't.

I agree that Nigel de Jong should have been given a ban from the FA nufc4me, but Joey Barton needs to learn a lesson he looks like never learning. He's undoubtedly been one of our best players this season, and on Wednesday night he showed he hasn't changed at all. If he lets his football do the talking then there's no problem, but he doesnt look like he's capable of doing that.

As for Blackburn winning that awful game of football, I think we only have ourselves to blame. Defending the way Newcastle did and gifting 2 such comical goals to a team as poor as Blackburn signifies we are still a struggling premier league team. Defeats to teams like Blackburn and Stoke make those hard fought away wins at Everton and Arsenal completely pointless. If we're going to survive this year we need to continue defying the odds to pick up away wins at established teams, but it is even more vital that we start becoming a force at home - especially against the poorer teams in the league.

Just for information

Most of Barton's "indiscretions" for want of a better word, have come off the football field, and whilst he has previously been sent off, his "on field" record is not as bad as many of the people on here would think.

But he deserves the three match ban, which I assume he would have got in the referee had properly seen the incident.

Wow. Intelligent. Suppose it's what I'd expect of one of "The Hill Have Eyes" characters.

as someone who has met Joey Barton on more than a few occasions, I must say he came across to be an affable and charming individual. He is just someone that is trully passionate about his art and emotions often get on the surface for someone of this ilk.. there is nothing wrong with that and much better than passion-less rubbish that is England.. For example would you rather have someone like Garrard, Lampard or Lennon who literally play with no passion whatsoever.. my point exactly..
__________________________________________________

Whilst I'm sure he was a wonderful person on the occasions that you met him, the issue is his complete lack of ability to control his temper. When you met him, he was obviously calm. Had you made him angry I'm sure his reaction would have been an attempt to cave your face in.

I also think you are confusing a couple of words in the English dictionary here... "Passion" & "Thuggery" are two very different things...

No two ways about it, Barton is purely a thug with real anger management problems who doesn't deserve his privileged postion as a proffesional footballer.
