Gary Megson Cares Not for Self Respect

Stupid Fucking Bolton manager Gary Megson wants to prove that if you can kick a football there is no limit to how shitty of a human being you can be. Translation: yeah, they might sign Joey Barton

The manager confirmed "an interest in Newcastle's rebellious midfielder."

Johnny Lydon was rebellious. Barton is worthless scum.

In May of last year, Barton was sentenced to six months after beating the shit out of a bystander outside of a Liverpool McDonald's (disturbing video here). While he was serving 77 days of that sentence he was given a four month suspended sentence after he admitted to assaulting former teammate Ousmane Dabo during training.

Still, Barton was allowed to return to play in the EPL (suck it, Barclays) for the '08-'09 campaign. He made his season debut as a second half sub against Arsenal and had been on the pitch all of about 30 seconds when he tried to put his foot through Samir Nasri's femur.

Barton's Wikipedia page must be edited by his mom as it laughingly described the incident thusly: "Shortly into this return game, Barton was involved in an incident with Samir Nasri, putting in a hard but fair challenge, for which the referee did not give a foul."

That's because the ref didn't see it.

Earlier this month, Barton took out Xabi Alonso with a two-footed, studs-up tackle that drew a straight red. Newcastle manager Alan Shearer subsequently suspended Barton indefinitely and told him to stay away from the relegation-threatened club.

Barton is worthless. Megson just lost any respect he might have garnered from us for making Stupid Fucking Bolton seem less stupid and guiding them to a place where they're not even in the relegation picture with a month left on the schedule.

Oh, Blackburn Rovers and Sam Allardyce might also be interested in Barton, be we already didn't care much for Big Fat Sam

Barton is a complete embarrassment as both a footballer and a human being, not to mention a complete waste of air. Any club linked with him suddenly deserves to go into administration. Despicable doesn't quantify just how wrong paying, playing or even signing Barton is at this point.

It's hard to have self-respect when you're Toby Flenderson

Oh oh! Remember that reality show idea that included Artest, Ballack, Drogba, et al.? Add Joey Barton to that show. God, I want this to happen.
