Barton Defends Mackems (Well Almost)!
Joey Barton slammed a journalist for rating Sunderland players as 'gutless' following their thumping at Swansea. But then reminded them of the 5-1.
New boss Gus Poyet did not enjoy a winning start to his managerial career at Sunderland as the Black Cats were hammered 4-0 by Swansea, which led one journalist from the Daily Mirror in his player ratings to name the majority of them 'gutless'.
Joey Barton on Twitter:-
@Joey7Barton I'm all for saying people have played badly. Game of opinions after all. But gutless? Poor. Yes. Gutless. Some statement. Very personal.10:52 AM - 21 Oct 2013 @Joey7Barton I dislike 5under1and as much as anyone. Couldn't believe my eyes. Bang out of order. Hahaha after Bardsley. Distasteful. Is that journalism?
@Joey7Barton Love to see the guy who wrote it play. Maybe they should invite him over to training. He's obviously a man of incredible fortitude.
