New Golden Gloves champion, Joey Barton, is set to be released from jail this week after serving time for beating a man senseless outside of a McDonald’s in the centre of Liverpool. He’s probably spending some time right now preparing himself for what should be an interesting sit-down meeting with his current employer when he gets out of the clink.
Whether Barton wants to believe it or not, he’s probably living by a thread at Newcastle. The recent incidents and reports coming from the paper’s claim that Barton is one more mistake away from kissing Tyneside goodbye — meaning it could already be time for a new change of scenery for the United midfielder. Shockingly, there seems to be someone out there that wants to help if Barton is interested!

Another team reaching out a hand to offer Barton a fresh start? Surely this has to be pure paper talk. If it is true, then the people of Horwich better be prepared to batten down the hatches!
Would Bolton supporters welcome a loan move for Barton? Does this guy really deserve another chance with a new club?
