I strangely think he will do ok.................. A lot of luck involved IMO.

He will be strong on discipline and motivation.
He will stub his cigar out on the younger players if they don't toe the line.

Lots of hard working coaches who've spent years honing their craft in preparation for a head coach opportunity must be wondering why they bother right now. Coaching is a skill that you LEARN it is not some intangible thing that is just a natural offshoot of 'leadership' or 'character' or whatever it is that people apparently see in Joey Barton.
Err...Barton started on his coaching qualifications years ago and got his UEFA ‘A’ licence in 2014.

Wow, he got an ‘A’ licence. Still no Pro Licence and more importantly no actual practical experience.

I wonder what Sol Campbell thinks about this, given he is one of the sharpest football brains in the world I am surprised Fleetwood weren't knocking Sol's door down to offer him the post.

Good to see someone starting off in the lower leagues. ..
My thoughts exactly.

Not like a certain Sol Campbell who thinks he should be given a Premier job, just because of who he is.

Can't believe I'm speaking up for that pillock Campbell, but tbf, that's not strictly (come dancing) true:

Sol Campbell: ‘I’m prepared to go to a non-league club and just get a win bonus’

“It’s proving difficult and if I have to start at the bottom, I will,” he says. “People may think that I just want to manage in the Premier League but I’m prepared to go to a non-league club, and if they can’t pay me a salary just pay me a win bonus. I’m up for that. I won’t be up for that four or five years down the line but definitely for the first year, as long as it’s a good club with ambition. I’m itching to start, I just need a chance, even just an interview in which I can say: ‘Take me for free and I’ll show you what I can do.’”

I think that fact that hes run his mouth off for so long is a reason why hes not getting these interviews.

I find it hard to believe that no-one (even in non-league) will have him if he's genuinely offering his services for free.

He’s intelligent and bases his ideas, thoughts.. (football and political) on logic. Reckon he will model himself on Pochettino.

I reckon he will do ok. Not a very likeable person but he has got something about him so wouldn't be surprised if he did pretty well.

Perhaps people remember his antics in joining Notts County and don't think that is the right type of character

Trouble does seem to follow him around.

His time in football is pretty much over. Good riddance. A clearly violent and disturbed individual.

Didn't Stendel call him a 'scally ****' or something of that ilk? If so isn't that racist too? :scratch:

Not sure how big the Barnsley manager is, but wonder if Barton would (allegedly) try it on with Sean Dyche or Mick Harford

Reads like somebody else could have been involved or are the police being unusually cautious in the info they are giving out?

Most likely the latter (bearing in mind a player supposedly tweeted it was Barton previously and then deleted it). However obviously possible it's the former.
Although I wouldn't say it's particularly unusual.

Anyone whos read his book would find it hard to give him the benefit of the doubt.Pretty sure there will be video evidence as the club are doing a similar Sunderland type documentary on Netflix

I'm afraid he's scum and it's in his genes, feral with ability and intelligence and hence why so dangerous. He's like a feral polecat that someone wants to make the family rabbit, sooner or later it will launch a savage attack and not see what it's done wrong. Football has saved him from far worse but he's still a young man and he's like a magnet that attracts trouble and can't see that changing unless he lives on a remote island and just fights the wildlife.

Sean Dyche ain't scary at all :thumbs:

Mick Harford on the other hand.... :eek: :sneakoff:
I can confirm big mick is scary. I can't remember the away game a few seasons ago but think it was Wigan. He was on our train so after the little bit of trouble when he was with Mk i thought i would have a quite word. Fair play he didn't bite thankfully and had a good chat with him. Very scary indeed.

Seem to remember Dyche got sent off on more than one occasion when he was playing for Chesterfield against us.

I gave up on his book with 80 or so pages left. Got fed up with reading about how nothing was ever his fault.

That’s it, he used to be oblivious to what was so wrong as it was usual behaviour. I thought since he’d stopped playing he’d changed but obviously not and it must be so easy to push his buttons.
