'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barton Backlash For Warnock

JOEY Barton has launched a frankly baffling attack on former boss Neil Warnock regarding the use of Twitter.

An avid user of Twitter, Barton has reacted angrily to suggestions made by Warnock that some people influenced an inexperienced board via an online barrage.

Barton stated: 'Neil Warnock saying I talk to much. Now that is funny #mikebassett.

'If I talked about Neil, he'd do well to get another job. Twitter cost him his job???? I can think of a million other things! #shutitwarnock.

'Looking forward to the game against Wigan tomo. 1st time in a while we actually have a plan and seem organised. #3ptsneeded.

'Lost his job and the guy is blaming everyone but himself! Embarrassing, time to look in the mirror mate.'


While no-one is exempt from criticism, there will be many supporters at Queens Park Rangers deeply hurt by the comments of Barton today.

Neil Warnock is held in very high regard by QPR supporters and this ill-advised set of comments from Barton will not have won him too many supporters.

It is a tad churlish to suggest the social network was the solitary reason for his departure, but a riposte like this from Barton was as naive as Warnock's suggestion itself.

Warnock has made no secret of his dislike of Twitter previously, but has never banned his players using the social network to air their views.

Barton is set to start against Wigan Athletic tomorrow after returning from a three match ban after being sent off in the defeat against Norwich City.
