Damn. I said it was only a matter of time before Barton landed one on Warnock's jaw, and it seems from the twitter spat that the Gobby One's dismissal has indeed robbed us of that golden moment. Just picture for a moment Warnock gobbing off as Barton storms from the pitch, getting close up and personal on the touchline and then...wham, Warnock's on the deck and Barton is kicking him and spitting on him as stewards, the police and team mates try to restrain him! Lifetime ban for Barton, broken jaw for Warnock, what could be better?
Amazing the way the tensions between the two were kept under wraps before the sacking! Now, after Warnock has blamed twitter for his sacking - with Barton in mind it seems - the Hooped thug has retaliated by comparing Warnock to Mike Bassett and claiming there were a million reasons why he should be sacked. Charming given Warnock rescued Barton's career after his falling out with Newcastle, talking Fernandes into offering him an obscene salary in the process.
I know Joey fancies himself as a bit of a literature buff after his tweets about Orwell. Perhaps he should pick up a copy of Shelley's Frankenstein, he might just spot a likeness between himself and the reanimated monster.
Meanwhile Hughes should take careful note. Turn your back on Barton, and you're likely to have your skull stove in before you know it!
