Lee Power missed a trick there in ensuring L1 football at the CG next season.
Only if some extra tickets for The Specials gigs at Coventry Cathedral were offered up though. Angry

You wait all that time for your stadium rebuild and then get banned after only a couple of games!  Doh

Joey Barton

something doesn't add up with this story. he was prevented from leaving by the police, not arrested and will be assisting next week with some more information.

Then on the other side you had any sports presenter reporting Barnsley manager in a bad way receiving medical attention and Barnsley players tweeting that Barton had headbutted him/knocked him out and had blood pouring everywhere.

The 2 above don't really go together.

Why not? Coppers stopped him leaving the scene so they could speak to him, spoke to him, ascertained he'd be available for interview at a later date, let him go about his business while they interview witnesses/alleged victim etc. Then when they speak to him next week or whenever, they have a full picture and can put the allegations to him to refute or admit. Don't see the problem?

it would be quite an easy case to arrest him on the spot would it not?

This attack obviously happen in front of loads of people and the police were called for that reason. if that had happened to me and I heard the police spoke to him and will get him back in for a chat in a few days times I'd be pretty pissed

Yes, but then they'd be interviewing him without having all the witness statements, CCTV evidence etc available to them plus starting the countdown to charge/release unnecessarily. Why make it harder to prove your case if you don't need to? If when he comes in they consider that they have sufficient evidence to charge him, he'll be formally arrested and charged then, it's not always "Sling im in the cuffs sarge and let's get im darn the nick". Think you've been watching too many old episodes of The Bill

PaulD is right, the police are almost totally risk adverse these days. What a world we live in.

if that happened on a night out in town id be amazed that they would let them walk away after multiple witnesses and a bad assault. thought that in this situation they would have enough on the spot evidence to charge him straight away.

assuming that because he is well known they let him go as they know he can be reached. if it was a fan for example that did it would be different.

I agree with you, Iffy.  Can't see the average hooligan being treated as Barton.

However, discretion may be the better part of valour here.  Barton will be accessing lawyers a tad more fearsome and resourced than the average hooligan's duty solicitor.  If he is to be prosecuted, it would make sense that it proves  successful.
