Joey Barton signed for Newcastle United for £5.8 million in May 2007 after his controversial exit from Manchester City.

He is a forward-thinking midfield player who can score important goals. Joey is often in the news off the pitch due to his bad behaviour.

Even though he has had some problems in his personal life Joey remains a great footballer and appreciates the backing of his fans in helping him put his problems behind him.

Joey Barton was refused bail today after appearing in court charged with assault.

He was arrested in Liverpool in the early hours of Thursday and charged with common assault and affray. He was already on bail for two other alleged offences.

Magistrate Carol Myers told Liverpool Magistrates’ Court there was a risk of Barton offending again, adding: “I also have to consider the safety of the public – you lashed out indiscriminately.”

Barton made his Newcastle premierhsip debut today in their 2-1 loss to Reading.

It was a poor display by Newcastle and they were lucky to score at all. Barton had little part in the game, but Allardyce will be looking for him to come back strong after his injury. Newcastle have had a good start to the season and were predicted to win against Reading who had conceded 21 goals in 10 premier league matches. However Newcastle had a very bad day defensively.
