Blankety Blank – Newcastle

Football FanCast is bringing Blankety Blank to the Premier League. Each week we’ll pick one of the hottest headlines from the back pages of the newspapers and it will be up to you to fill in the blanks.

This week Newcastle’s Joey Barton caused a storm on twitter by openly criticising the Club’s hierarchy. “If I wanted to leave, I’d just come out and say “I want to leave” Things need addressing as am not prepared to go through a relegation again.” After this, the outspoken midfielder was subsequently made available on a free transfer and may be forced out of the club. Barton has been in particularly philosophical mood this week with quotes from Nietzsche, Virgil and Orwell appearing on his twitter feed alongside a healthy dose from The Smiths.

Here’s a headline from The Sun  regarding his future with a couple of crucial words removed.
