Not for the first time - Turds bid £5m for the thug - we are being linked with Bruiser Barton. Pardew obviously wants him out, fearful of Joey taking issue with Pants Down's off fied activities no doubt. But should we touch him with a sticky barge pole? Not in a million years!
Barton in the East End of London? Really? How many morons will see him as a challenge in bars and clubs across town, a gobby Manc with a history of brawling? They will be queuing around the block for an opportunity to wind him up and have a pop.
Barton and Dyer in the same dressing room? Really? Never mind West Ham Olympic, Brady will be able to rename us Olympic Fight Club!
I rate him as a player but as a person? Do me a favour!
And does this sound familiar? Do you remember who we signed mid season the last time we went down? That would be Bowyer and that worked out brilliantly didn't it? The rest of the squad didn't want him at the club and the fans were at best luke warm.
Hopefully this is just a silly internet rumour. I know we want the team to punch their weight in the Prem, but not literally!
