He is the dirtiest player. Have you forgotten the tackle he put on a guy a few years back that sent the guy into all out convulsions?
He is a pox on this game.
Barton was very calm and collected all match… I saw nothing dirty from him.. he even put his head down and stared at the ground when Diaby went after him when the old Joey would have pounded Diaby…
he in no way played the ball, did we watch the same tackle? i think it was a yellow but not a sending off like wenger hinted at. also writing one sentence isnt complaining to much, everyone knows barton is a thug so all i did was state a fact. yellows are routinely given for far less than that tackle. looks like i touched a nerve with you though…
Horrendous? He went in with one foot and played the ball. Even Wenger the cry baby who is trying to legislate tackling out of the game didn’t complain about it as much as you just did. If you’ve got a problem with the beautiful game being played physically, baseball starts soon. It’s slow, boring and nobody ever gets hurt.
It was entertaining, it had horrible defending.
Seriously, Barton is dirtiest player? I think you forgot a little guy named Nigel De Jong? A karate kick and two snapped legs in less than a year?
I do agree Dowd was very shaky, but he wasn’t just costing Arsenal. Newcastle had a goal called offsides when replays showed Leon Best was CLEARLY onside. So they should have won that game if not for that. The calls went both ways. And for what it’s worth, even though Barton has a bad reputation now, he has actually really cleaned up his act the past year. Stupid, stupid play by Diaby.
what terrible defending by newcastle in the first 20min
How in god’s name did Barton escape any sort of booking for that horrendous tackle he put in on diaby? Of course diaby overreacted and deserved to be dismissed but that is overshadowing Barton’s tackle. He is a thug and I hope him and De Jong both get what they deserve for playing the beautiful game like trashy thugs.
I first tuned in at 4-0 Arsenal and choose not to stay tuned. Bummer I missed this one.
Reckon Tiote is the next big thing for Newcastle.
It is also amazing that the tying goal was Tiote’s first goal in English football. What a way to start!
Excuse me, but that was the WORST reffing I’ve seen ALL season. Fan or not, of either team, that was a howler from Dowd and he should be suspended for giving first the PK, then the free kick on that Barton obvious flop to set up the last goal. Awful and if I wouldn’t know any better, I’d think that ref was paid off. Sure hope he doesn’t ref that shyte against any team of mine…Newcastle should be thanking the ref, not their ability to crawl back. Also, really bad red card on Diaby…should have kept his cool but he didn’t. Stupid. Barton is the dirtiest/craziest player in the EPL and he was hamming that crap up.
Tiote what a hit! Epic game!
hell out a game
Same old Wenger. Should have reinforce his backline but he was too cheap.
One hell of an equalizer
