Have to see what happens. I wonder if he’s called him a ‘German Something’ during whatever occurred, as that would change it to racially aggravated.

Best to let the facts emerge and see if this arrest is in fact Joey Barton.

I will be gobsmacked if it isn't!

He needs to go away for a long time of this is all as it would appear to be.

He might have used the German N word although if he's as thick as Hennessy he won't have ever heard that word.
I do think that in Barton's case it was more being criticised for the way his team played and losing than it being a foreigner who uttered the words.
It could well finish his career though.

It will be about  proof if itís not been witnessed or on video then itís one mans word against another.
At the moment it is suspected but asking for evidence.

   From a selfish Rovers point of view this is bloody annoying..They have Posh on Saturday at home and I would much rather they were concentrating fully on that rather than having a whip round for his bail money..

Could work both ways but I get where your coming from. On the face of it it doesn't seem like the best preparations.

If he called him a Nazi, then fair play thatís deemed to be a taboo word in this day and age and should be punished in some way....

However, a little fisticuffs is no worse than some of the deliberate elbowing in the face that ya get at most set pieces, ....ainít condoning it at all, just saying that this kind of violence happens at the majority of games, and is ONLY punished when itís been seen.....

I donít like Barton, he brings a thug mentality to the game that I thought was on the wane after Vinny Jones wore Gazaís nuts on his necklace....

Highly unlikely that no one saw it, in the tunnel after the game.

They won't send him to prison, it would half the average IQ of the prison population at a stroke.

Anyone remember Barton's 11 minute England career?

In an era where England weren't strangers to embarrassing performances, that one stood out.

He looked like a donkey among gazelles. He spent minutes chasing Iniesta's shadow before lunging into the back of his calf and getting booked. That was the sum of his contribution to the game.

That summed him up. A limited thug who somehow has crafted a career convincing people that he has something to contribute.

He crafted a career in working his nuts off to be on a par with players who had a lot more talent than him.

He just nearly threw his career away at various points by random acts of stupidity. Ironically, it was one of them incidents (Dabo, May 2007) that cost him a few more England caps.

I'd rather watch a team of Joey Barton's, who lacked skill but grafted, than a bunch of tricky, flicky, passy, passy stars who don't try as hard.

Don't tell me he was a grafter.

I remember seeing Wellens make a prick of him at the KM in 2014. There was one moment where Wellens turned him and sprinted away and Barton gave up. Literally gave up. He was only a yard or so away from Wellens but he just stopped and stood watching.

I have never in my life seen a player do that. Petulant, posing and pathetic.

If he wasn't a grafter then why did he manage to play in the Premier League for a large chunk of his career - especially in an era where clubs gradually signed more and more players from overseas?

That's a fact. He grafted for it.

If he hadn't worked his nuts off, he'd have probably just become any other Tom, Dick or Harry player a couple of divisions lower.

Random acts of stupidity? That's rubbish, Rigo, come on. He is a serial violent thug, it isn't random. This is his personality, his make-up is that of an angry, violent thug and there is no defending him on any of that.

A decent midfield player, no doubt about that. Proved that at both ends of his career really, had a terrific renaissance at Burnley after success at Man City and Newcastle. But his character is extremely questionable.

Well however it's worded, he'll be struggling to keep his job if he gets charged with what's come out in the press today.

Assuming it is Joey Barton who's been nicked.

Curtis Main in that "pretend to jump for the ball after it's already gone and hope no one realises" thing he did the other year. That was among the most pathetic things I've ever seen in the game.

No, Rivaldo vs Turkey in the World Cup., Turkish player kicks the ball against his shins, Rivaldo goes down holding his face, Turkish lad gets sent off..

I didn't actually see the game at the time so I can't count that, personally. Just going on what I've seen happen actually at the time.

Turkish lad = Alpay.

Played for Aston Villa at the time and a few seasons thereafter. Very interesting character who had a few run ins with players over the years!

Because it relates to the incident in the tunnel of Oakwell Stadium, a football ground, at the end of a football match. Not forced to be Barton just because it's on the football site, it is football news whether it's Barton or a fan or whatever who is arrested.

I think itís made it because of the Ďin relation to an incident at the Barnsley vs Fleetwood gameí line in their press release.

That and Ďattended a police stationí - theyíve basically not named Joey Barton, but put enough pointers in their release to suggest its him.
