****ING MIKE ASHLEY!! Barton always showed quality especially against big teams last season.
Caroll, Nolan, Enrique and now Barton, what a change.
now time to spend some money and get a left back and striker asap, and tbh I saw the names linked for the CF spot dunno why Pardew is obsessed with the french league now.
One time we played Cagliari and before the game I asked him: 'Do you know the name of the centre-back of Cagliari?' 'No'. 'No?! You are not a professional. You have to know the skills of the opponent. You have to know the name of the centre-back'. 'Mister', said Ronaldo, 'I don't know the name of the player I play against. But he knows me'!''
