January 04 03:35 2008 Print This Article

This season we are having the worst ever in Newcastle United history after two of United’s first team player were have to deal with the law.


Barton was spend the New Year’s in jail after involved in two separate incidents with another group at a McDonald’s restaurant in Church Street, Liverpool, at 5.30am last Thursday.

The Guardian report Barton was collected from Liverpool prison by his solicitor Daniel Weed and Peter Kay, the chief executive of the Sporting Chance clinic in Hampshire.

Members of Barton’s family were also waiting outside the prison. Barton made no comment as he passed out through the gates and got into a waiting car.

Weed said: “Joseph Barton has been granted bail with conditions until he appears at Liverpool magistrates court on January 16.”

Meanwhile, also from the Guardian, United captain Geremi has responded to a writ issued against him by the agents IMG which claims the midfielder illegally prevented it from negotiating, and profiting, from his move to the north-east club. Were he to lose, the case could cost Geremi up to £150,000.
