Match of The Day Have A Chuckle At Barton

Gary Lineker, Alan Hansen and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer all appeared amused by the tough tackling Joey Barton found himself on the end of at Molineux on Saturday.

The Match of The Day program held a detailed segment after the highlights concentrating on Barton, and despite Lineker calling for no chuckling all three appeared to fully enjoy reviewing the tackles- Shearer in particular who actually appeared to take joy in counting seven of the challenges.

Alen Hansen described Henry's acrobatic scissor kick late in the game as 'the best.'

What do fans think of the competitive treatment saved for Barton?

Wrong to deliberately target another player. Before you know it we get labelled a dirty team, and pick up more cards than we deserve, and every one wants to see you relegated. You end up just like the player you targetted and on it goes.

I'd agree with those sentiments. Barton has a long way to go to redeem himself, if he ever can. But is it fair to ask a vicious dog to behave and then poke it with a stick? Nothing wrong with some crunching 50-50s, hell we need some back in the game. But truthfully, I think most of Henry's 'assaults' on Barton were when Barton wasn't aware he was coming and so they were hardly 50-50. Yet he's full of himself in the papers afterwards.

I liked the quip about when Mick was walking off at the end with Joey and Hansen said he thought Mick was going to kick him as well !!.Up the Wolves.

He put a cigar out in some ones eyes leaving permanent scaring yet he can't take a tackle on a football field. He likes to swing his fists around during scuffles in the early hours of the morning in Liverpool City Center- but he can't take a tackle. As for the assertion that he "wasn't aware (Henry) was coming" for "most" of the tackles tells me that if Barton spent more time looking where the ball is he might spend a bit more time on his feet than the floor. He can expect similar treatment up and down the country so I suggest he gets used to it.

Tackling aside Barton was the best player on the pitch !!!! , The So called Scissor kick tackle near the end was Bartons own fault for trying a stupid attempt to clear the ball , He looked like he was trying to Side wise scissor kick it out himself and Henry goes in to block it , Barton made a meal of it , Out of all the Tackles i think Jarvis's was the worst and that says it all as hes a softie lol , What bout Andy Carroll's swipe at Berra which went un-noticed ???? , Would have been a straight red if seen by the ref !!!
