Joey Barton - yes or no?

With his move to West Ham fallen through, and the injuries to Hughes and Bryson, we are being strongly linked with a move for Joey Barton. I've said for months we should go for Barton, he has a bit of baggage but he's still good enough, and for me we are still a bit to nice.

If you have a chance to sign him but your fans moan because he stabbed someone then it's just daft. He's a good player.

Seems some would happily have him, some set against the idea. If he stubs his cigar out in Lee Grants eye, he might be able to catch the ball afterwards...

I wouldn't have a problem with it but then again not living in England I don't really get the big fuss over his off the field stuff p

All he's done recently is overuse Twitter.

He would improve any championship midfield

Durks said you had a right rant about his recently new family member Mr Grant last night.

Barton was massive for QPR in their promotion season. For me Baird is a defender and Hendrick is an attacking midfielder. If Clement wants to play the 2 holding midfielders, Barton alongside Thorne could be a real quality partnership.

Like rob says, other than his twitter rants, he seems to have calmed down a bit.

I wouldn't be unhappy to see him come to Derby.

Well...

I merely started saying your mate butter fingers is at it again. Then I might have finished with, next time you see Grant you can tell him from he is ****ing shit, and the worst keeper I've ever seen play for Derby, even worse than Kevin Poole when he was drawing out his pension.

The main derby message board put this question to the vote. 300 odd votes cast, 55% said yes. So it's fairly Splitt but just leaning towards yes.

I'd say no. There's always the worry he will lose it somewhere down the line. Undoubtedly would add to the squad though.

And we seem to be no closer to bringing anyone in.
