Can I just say well done to @robbierogers .Takes enormous amounts of courage to do what he's done. Fair play.

Hope he finds some peace. Took guts. Hopefully other athletes follow his lead.

That is, literally, the last thing I thought Barton would have said about this.

I don't find it that surprising to be honest, Joey Barton is a fricking idiot, but he's no bigot. On twitter he is a psuedo-intellectual, always trying to market how 'open minded' he is. He's pretty much a hipster

Joey Barton is exceptionally intelligent and bookish by the standards of most footballers. He has anger management and drinking issues, but that doesn't detract from the fact that he's really smart.

He graduated with a ton of GCSE qualifications (basically SAT/ACT tests in England).

Grant Wahl's interview with him is fairly interesting.
