Dodgy Comments From Barton!

The former Newcastle defender has failed to see that we have Charles N'Zogia and James Milner ... the two brightest talents in the game.

It the bloody defence we need to strengthen! And a blind man on a galloping horse can pin point THAT as the problem.

We may even have the players at the club (Beye, Taylor, Faye, etc) but they need a coach to drill them. And defensive coaching has never been Keegan's strength.
Barton: "He had David Ginola the last time he was at Newcastle, and he needs to buy two good wingers.

"It's a season to remember already - he's come back.

"A UEFA Cup spot is a possibility. If I was in the dressing room and he walked in, that would give me a lift.

"The players have got to respond - there is quality in that team.

"Players look at wages but they like to play for a manager who has got a lot of passion, a lot of desire, and Kevin Keegan is a very big name in the world of football.

"He's got to the end of the month to get some players in, I'm sure there will be a lot of activity."

Born in Islington, one of the Wimbledon wild bunch. Signed for £4m from Wimbledon and was the most expensive defender in the country at the time. Went through a very difficult spell but won the fans over in the end. Transfered to Derby County for a nominal fee. England international when he played in the abandoned game against the Irish Republic in Dublin. Never played again, although the Rothman's Yearbook insist he was capped as a Newcastle player. He wasn't.
