Reds tracking Barton

http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11095_6900082,00.html

....Liverpool are keeping tabs on Joey Barton's contract situation at Newcastle, skysports.com understands.

Barton's future at Newcastle has been the subject of speculation with the midfielder yet to agree a new deal at St James' Park.

The news has alerted a number of clubs to Barton's possible availability with both Aston Villa and West Ham credited with an interest in the former Manchester City man in the January transfer window.

Now Liverpool are believed to be tracking Barton following his superb season for Newcastle this term.

With Barton entering the final 12 months of his contract at Newcastle this summer, the midfielder would be an attractive proposition for Liverpool as he could be available for a cut-price fee.

The 28-year-old has been Newcastle's standout performer this season on their return to the Premier League and he is widely expected to scoop the club's Player of the Season award.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is thought to be drawing up his list of transfer targets and Barton could figure on it due to his success in linking up with Reds striker Andy Carroll while the pair were together at Newcastle.

Barton was the provider of eight of Carroll's goals at Newcastle this season prior to his move to Anfield in January and Dalglish could look to reunite the pair as he tries to get the best out of his 35million signing next season.

Barton has excelled in his right-side midfield role this season and he could be the answer to Liverpool's problematic right-wing position by adding some creativity to the midfield.

Scouser-tommy86 understands that Sky sports news have put 2 and 2 together and got 5.

Joey Barton, 12 months left on his deal, from Liverpool, too good a player for Everton and Liverpool are recruiting english players means Liverpool want Barton.

He has 12 months left on his deal. Maybe if his agent leaks a story that Liverpool are interested, then Newcastle will suddenly produce a nice fat new contract....

The **** he aint. Barton is a pussy. He can give it but he cant take it. Karl Henry got him spot on.* Plus he aint half the player Keane was.



*'He (Barton) seems to think he's a bit of a player who puts his foot in. But I didn't see any of that from him. I saw him shoving players off the ball a lot.

'Me? I love getting stuck in. I enjoy these games. There wasn't too much quality, but I knew it was going to be physical with Alan Smith and him in there. I've got a lot of time for Smith. He was saying, "Well done, good battle", and he loves it. He loves getting tackled as much as he tackles.
'I'm the same, I love a good honest tackle. I don't mind getting tackled, either. But Barton was in the ref's ear all the time and not happy about getting put to the floor.

'We'll have more of the same when we go up to their place. He was even whining at the end.

This.

I could understand if we were looking at a 28/29 year old if he was an exceptional player & was available for a knock down fee etc but buying Joey Barton makes no sence whatsoever!

He's 29 in September, he has one of the worst attitudes of any footballer on the planet & though he may be better than many people think due to his reputation preceding him he's not exactly going to improve our current squad.

. Scouser is good to have more in the squad but Barton is a liability and i wouldn't recommend him but if Kenny brings him in i'll support his decision because i think Barton possesses alot of ability.

It seems to me that the reasoning as such behind this rumour is the fact that Barton provided a number of assists for Andy Carroll at Newcastle. I am sure we are capable of finding other, better players who can do the same. Talk about clutching at straws to make up a story!

Barton has done it repeatedly and repeatedly. I truly hope he has sorted himself out and has stayed out of trouble for the best part of 18 months but you can't exactly be surprised that Reds fans aren't welcoming the links to an ex-criminal who spent time in jail for pure thuggery.

He does, but that's his own fault for having been a violent moron in the past. He's earned his reputation, nobody did it for him.

The loudest I have ever heard Arsenal fans sing (a rare occurrence) was when they gave Barton a rendition of "you're supposed to be in jail" after he got out.

As for Balotelli being targeted, he's busy targeting others with darts!

Wow you have traveled from the future, as the FA Cup Final has not happend yet. Going to be an intresting game then, seeing a player getting murdered by the media.



He's 28.. FSG would never allow this.

Surely it's up to the manager whom he signs, and how old are our signings going to be, just seems everytime we get linked with someone he can't sign because he is too old for the criteria, but the age keeps going down, it's gone from over 30, to 30, to 29, to 28, soon we won't be able to sign candidates in young player of year, as they are too old. What is the age limit, and how comes we've tied up older players on extended contracts. Don't want us to sign Barton, but just everytime we are linked, it's oh they won't allow it as he is too old, shouldn't the manager be the person deciding this.

I would have no problem bringing Barton in. He needs dicipline but he's got passion and has played some good football this season. He would work very hard for the club as well too, being a scouser.

I wouldn't put it past Kenny to bring him here.

I think these days the media have no idea what is happening with all matters Liverpool. They'll get nothing from Kenny or his backroom staff, nothing from Ian Ayre as he has no agenda against the manager and absolutely nothing from the owners.

Thus they scrape around the bottom of the barrel looking at things like 'Barton's not signed a new contract yet, where could he go? Yeh he's from Liverpool he'd go there' rubbish.

I see a return to the Liverpool way with Kenny. The media will hate it and we might not like it on here as we'll here nothing until the deal is done. Fact of the matter for me is I'm not bothered if top players come in and we'd heard nothing about it previous. Barton won't be one of them

I would have no problem bringing Barton in. He needs dicipline but he's got passion and has played some good football this season. He would work very hard for the club as well too, being a scouser.

I wouldn't put it past Kenny to bring him here.

I can see your point of view (assuming you are serious). I do agree he is not a bad footballer. But I seriously wonder if his mental state is just off one notch too much.

It would be a huge gamble...

But...

If it paid off it could be a bargain!

The lad has a lot of baggage and he's a blue-nose

But ....

He's very talented and has had a cracking season and hasn't been in too much trouble of late...

If anyone can handle him, get the best out of him and put him in line I think Sir King Kenny can...

Playing out on the right and delivering quality crosses for Carrol would be a real asset so long as he doesn't lose his head

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1381297/Joey-Barton-5m-target-Liverpool-boss-Kenny-Dalglish.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is considering a 5million move for Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton.

Dalglish has long followed the 28-year-old's progress and, while he recognises such a move would be controversial, he believes Barton's ability merits serious consideration.

Dalglish wants to bring in around six signings this summer, with Blackburn's Phil Jones, Blackpool's Charlie Adam, Aston Villa's Ashley Young and Stewart Downing and Ipswich's Connor Wickham among his targets.

He is keen to return a strong British identity to the squad and sees room for Barton's feisty style.

The Liverpudlian has not always endeared himself to the Anfield faithful. He was sent off for a lunge at Xabi Alonso on his last visit and clashed with Fernando Torres during Newcastle's 3-1 home victory over Liverpool last December.

But Dalglish feels Barton could add an edge to his side and help bring the best out of 35m record signing Andy Carroll.

Barton, who will have 12 months left on his contract at St James' Park by the summer, set up eight goals for the England striker in his time at Newcastle.

I'd much rather Kevin Nolan; although I think the story about Barton has no legs. We're gonna be linked with dozens of players.

Me too, He's a very good underrated player and would come into our club totally seamlessly. I've got alot of time for Nolan,good honest committed tough player. I can't see Barton even being thought about for very long,he just doesn't fit the owners criteria. I would imagine Kenny would laugh at the suggestion for a bit,then say no thanks. Let's face it,Mr Barton is an ASBO with boots on.

Why not both? (Barton & Nolan) add a bit of depth to the squad, both would qualify as homegrown as well, Barton, Nolan and Enrique from Newcastle... after taking Carroll there would be murder! :D

I'm all for Barton and Nolan being here, as well as Parker and Charlie Adam, the smaller the name, the more you get from them. :scarf

EDIT: As for Barton being a convict, if Chris Hughton can get him playing well, imagine what the King can do?

In this instance I would question Kenny. The man is a total liability, I remember an interview he done a year or two back with the BBC (I think) and he spoke of a higher calling in life than football.

I also think a move back to his native Merseyside would be a disaster both for himself and Liverpool FC. Personally I don't think he's good enough for Liverpool, and I also believe there would be many people in the region who would bring out the worst aspects of his character and send him on a self destructive path. Not even Kenny could protect him from this.

I agree with your post and in support will say this : ~

Anyone who understands the football dynamic and who's watched Liverpool for the past couple of years - ever since we NEARLY won the premier league but didn't - would understand that we are collectively not mentally strong enough to push on and win things. Maybe the odd cup here and there, and I include the champion's league in that, but the premier league ? forget it ! Arsenal are a tougher proposition than us.

Many on here think the answer to these problems is Aquilani - do me a favour, the man is as tough as a wet sheet of cardboard - when what we really need is something altogether more robust. We need a winner. A Souness, a Jimmy Case, a Tommy Smith.

Or, in the modern game, a Joey Barton.

Fool yourself not into believing that Kenny will somehow get the likes of Aquilani powder stuffing around the pitch. Ye know not the man !
There is every, and all, likelihood in my humble view that we will be buying Barton in the not too distant future - watch this space - and don't worry, I won't mind if you forget I told you so !

People's conception of these fancy footed Spanish, Italian or Brazilian players is astounding. Just because his name ends in -inho or -ico or whatever doesn't mean he's a great player or that he's going to be great for us. Sometimes you need someone who is going to get down and dirty. That's why I advocate British players alot more than foreign talent. They're more likely to give you a ******* fight, more than Spanish hitmen will for example.

There's a difference between a tough player and Joey Barton though. I agree we definitely do need one or two hard cases. We do have some right nice boy fairies in our side and it needs balancing out. But Barton isnt just a hard tackler that'll get under the oppositions skin. He's a genuine nailed on psycho and if he joined us he's just as likely to give Lucas a smack as someone on the other team.

And this "Oh Kenny will control him" is nonsense. Barton wouldn't give a **** who Kenny is when he's in one of his red mist modes.

To be fair I wasn't backing Barton although I think he is a top quality player. And I wasn't saying we need hard men as such, more that we need someone with a tough streak who will fight tooth and nail. Players like Suarez, Agger, Carragher, Gerrard, Carroll, Kuyt.

I agree he is, as you quite rightly put it, a "nailed on psycho" (hahaha) and it will be difficult to control him, but as players get older they calm down, grow up and get on with the game instead. I also think Kenny would be able to control him to a greater degree, he didn't really cause that much trouble this season did he?

Either way I don't particularly want him lol.

YES!!! hes got a nack in finding Carroll! i know many of you dont want him here, but i do! i think its a good thing to have a sort of bad boy in the team. if im not wrong, i think Barton assisted 8 of Carrolls goals for nufc this season. how many who went Barton-Carroll-Nolan, i do not know

On pure football talent, he's good enough.

Bewdleyfan
31-5-11, 20:13
Hmmm, this is an odd one if true. He had a very good season and despite showing progression in terms of his behaviour, he was still prone to moments of immaturity and idiocy.

Obviously he and Carroll have a great understanding, perhaps Kenny wants to utilise this.

adriano8
31-5-11, 20:15
I've been following him on Twitter and he's surprisingly articulate. Doesn't come across as the mentalist seen on CCTV that time. He's off the booze now and spends a lot of time looking after his horses.

He'll never be an angel but talent wise he's got enough to do a job I think. It's whether or not being near his old haunts could have a negative effect.

Playing football is more important than being a bad boy, It's just a rumor he's not what we should be looking for. He's a blue and hates LFC he's said so enough.

LLS
31-5-11, 20:17
With the combination of Barton, Carroll and Suarez we'd be the most hated team in the land.

Opposition fans would be unable to chant anything from midway through the first half onwards for their vocal chords will be broken due to all the booing of Barton, Carroll and Suarez.

For the last 60 minutes of each game it will be as if we've tamed the crowd, giving the team a huge boost of confidence.

Perhaps this is Kenny's plan?

He does come across very well whenever ive seen him in an interview.. more so than most players

yet you just know he can change any moment..

Im willing to give him a chance if Kenny is.. Hes certainly not a bad player.

Otherwise I really can't see the benefit in signing him.

Gerrard, Carroll, Diouf, Keane, Balotelli - I can't imagine any of them (allegedly) stubbing a lit cigar into the eye of a team mate.

Mario comes closest with the darts prank but the former offence has an air of psychopathy.

Fair to say this is a very big risk and I'm very uncertain about it, but no way near as against him as some on here.

He certainly has a bit about him in the brains department. 10 GCSEs and he was prepared to criticise the England football team and 'superstar' culture. That alone, makes him a bit special in one positive way at least.

And he's an improvement on either Poulsen or Spearing.

But still...I'm not sure.

He was rejected by Everton at 14.

How did it feel to be rejected by Everton at 14?
"It was really tough, horrible, but there was a scout at Everton, Barry Pointin, who had gone to City, and when Everton released me he phoned me that same night. I was gutted for about an hour and then I got the phone call. But I was still disappointed to be deemed a failure and rejected by the club I’d supported as a boy.
