Time for Joey to come home?

Comments (26)

I see from the Sunday papers that Joey Barton has already fallen out with the Newcastle fans and may well be looking to move on in January. Now I know he evokes mixed reactions in these parts but, all in all, he enjoys a `love-hate`relationship with Evertonians and most of us would love to see him boosting our midfield.

Osman, Carsley & Co may fare well against the `no hopers` in the Premier League but, whenever they face the top-half teams, they just cannot compete. Yesterday`s performance was a good example. I am positive that, now the boy has got the wanderlust out of his system, he would relish a move back to these parts; let`s hope Moyes feels the same!

I’ve got a bit of respect for him (grudgingly).. but I wouldn’t risk team spirit with a Joey Barton Signing...

Absolutely not, he’s poison and not even good enough to be considered a target, he’s no better than who we have already.

Not convinced he is good enough to really improve what we have, other than improving squad depth. I doubt he has the right character to be happy as a bit part player though. He’d need to be cheap to be justified and if not cheap he is a class below the likes of Arshavin or Appiah even though they are more of an unknown quantity in premiership terms.

Barton isnt that good, he causes trouble wherever he goes and would be a serious disruption to the team spirit and as we are top of the fair play league he wouldnt do much to enhance our postion in that too.
He is better off at Newcastle with the other collection of misfits that have accumulated there in the past few seasons.

Are you insane! I agree with the poison analogy. We need a tireless, box to box, world class CDM enforcer, not a racist thug who refuses to learn from past mistakes.

We had a lucky escape when the twat decided he wanted more money and went to the cash cow that is the Barcodes. He simply further cemented the reputation of mouthy, overrated, money-grabbing scumbag. I would hate to see him at Everton. We are gelling nicely as a squad and don’t want his venom in the dressing room. Same applies to the other little gobshite Bellamy.

Joey Barton? No way - i’d sooner get Scott Gemmill back than that horrible bastard! Did you see that tackle he made on Etuhu a couple of weeks ago?

He could always join West Ham... then he´d be alonside Bellamy, Dyer and Bowyer!!!

No chance. Ignoring Barton?s character or the lack of it, exactly what would he add to Everton?s midfield? Is he better defensively than Carsley..NO
Is he more creative than Osman, Pieneer, Cahill & Arteta...NO.
In essence, Barton is a poor man?s Gravesen & the real Tommy is struggling for a place on our bench at the moment.

He’s shite simple as. My Newcastle mate was saying he should put in a decent performance for his club before he starts questioning the fans. I completely agree with him. He’s been shite for Newcastle and he wasn’t all he hyped himself up to be at Man City. He was a good player in an awful midfield last season and that was it.

Colin, he isn’t a poor mans Gravesen at all. Gravesen has ability in terms of touch and an excellent passing range. Joey has energy and aggression but he lacks natural football ability. And as we have mentioned his attitude is awful. Even saying that though I wouldn’t want him for his Football ability either.

Supposedly a big hard man but judging by the way he shit himself of Etuhu he’s a shit house.

I absolutely agree that Joey should go to his natural home... WEST HAM. Then they can all join each other’s anger management support groups. Me, I’d quite like Lucho Gonzalez.

Absolutely no way. He?s a scumbag.

Brian - i think it?s an emphatic no from the majority of fans

Sorry you lost me after the first sentence.

Over this and last season Cars and Osman proved to be valuable members of the team..

You’re telling me Barton is anything more than an average player with a big mouth?

He is simply trying to engineer a move from the Barcodes now as he sees they aren’t going anywhere, doesn’t mean we need him here.

Love-hate relationship? I?d say it was a hate-hate relationship. This thug stubbed a cigar out in a youth player?s eye and punched a 15-year-old Evertonian. What are you thinking suggesting he should come home? The only way he?s going to his rightful home is if he gets sent to prison for punching Dabo.

Not a smart investment considering that next summer young Joey will be facing the beak for his cowardly assault on his then team-mate Dabo, Stuart Pearce, well known for his fair but hard approach to the game gave Barton numerous chances to rebuild his career - even sending him to the sporting chance establishment for anger management. Maybe Barton will learn the error of his ways and the chances he has squandered when he’s enjoying porridge with his racist brother and cousin.

No, don?t think it would be the right move for Everton to make; I would much prefer someone like Appiah, who from seeing in the world cup has a great engine, strong in the tackle and can play a bit.
