Joey Barton gets FFW’d up

Our friends at French Football Weekly met up with Joey Barton and it didn’t end with someone on the ground, begging for an ambulance. Nor did it end in a mass recital of Nietzsche’s aphorisms. No, Andrew Gibney and Scott Johnson had 30 minutes with England’s most outspoken player, and it’s one of the most interesting, well-balanced interviews we’ve seen in months. Joey talks about Twitter, his relationship with French referees, his new perspectives on how development in England is being hindered, and much more. If you don’t have 30 minutes, make time Andrew also transcribed the interview here

"For me, I’m more than happy to stay here. I envisage myself playing for another 6-8 years, I won’t retire, they’ll have to carry me off the pitch."
