Sound Of Football Podcast 270 - Barton Funk


Why is Joey Barton back in the news again? No, really... WHY? It can't just be because he has a new autobiography out, can it?

This week, Graham, Terry and Jan discuss the latest (and probably unwritten) chapter of his turbulent career. Is he a maverick, or a wasted talent? Is his ongoing presence a good thing in an increasingly sterile world of football "personalities"? Or is he just an annoyance?

Is there a place for those who speak their mind in a game more image-conscious than ever before.

A word of warning before you rush to the bookshop: Joey's a big a fan of Morrissey, so let's just hope his autobiography is a bit more readable than the one by the former Smiths frontman.
