Joey Barton Hitler Haircut

The Guardian newspaper early Monday mocked Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton’s theatrical fall to the ground Saturday against Arsenal and lambasted him for tweets about Alan Shearer’s hair.

We were left, therefore, with the crazy world of Joey Barton as a reliable distraction from depressing real life. An idea of how deep into the bizzaro world the Newcastle United midfielder has plunged can be gauged from his tweet yesterday mocking Alan Shearer's hair.

For a man who appears to have gone into the barbers with a picture of Hitler and said "this please, but without the moustache" to even think of scoring tonsorial points shows a lack of self-knowledge that is staggering even for Barton. His beef with Shearer was over the Match of the Day pundit's view that Barton was lucky to escape with a yellow card after the contretemps that saw Arsenal's Gervinho sent off.

Barton, who now communicates with planet Earth almost exclusively on Twitter, often borrowing the words of major figures in literature and popular culture, tweeted that Gervinho's (arguable) diving had enraged him because it showed a lack of respect for the game – an interesting view from someone who hit the ground as though felled by an elephant gun when the Arsenal man slapped him, and then claimed to have been punched.
