Barton, who missed a penalty against Aston Villa on Saturday, spoke out recently about Manchester City’s season and said he wouldn’t pay to watch the club play. Today’s action by Barton is further evidence that Barton doesn’t want to be at City and, I won’t be surprised if City no longer wants Barton to be at their club.
The timing by Barton is awful. Manchester City play at home against United in the derby on Saturday (7:45am ET, Setanta).
