    Joey Barton has risked the wrath of Newcastle's management board after blasting how the club is being run, insisting there will be a "time and a place" to tell the fans "exactly how it is" at St James' Park.

    Newcastle's pre-season preparations have been overshadowed by unrest within the squad with defender Jose Enrique, who has one year remaining on his contract, fined two weeks' wages for taking to Twitter to state that "this club will never again fight to be among the top six" if they continued to let their best players leave.

    Newcastle, who were relegated to the Championship in 2009 before returning to England's top flight as champions the season after, sold Andy Carroll to Liverpool for £35 million in January and talismanic midfielder Kevin Nolan to West Ham for an undisclosed fee this summer.

    Barton, himself in the final year of his current deal, vented his frustrations on the social networking site on Sunday, supporting his team-mate by bemoaning the club's hierarchy and declaring his intent to leave on a free transfer next summer.

    He tweeted: "If only we as players could tell the fans exactly how it is, without them above fining us lots of money. There will be a time and a place.

    "If it wouldn't affect team morale and cause unrest within the dressing room, am certain Jose's comments would be the tip of the iceberg ... And again it would be left to those magnificent fans to pick up the remnants of their once great football club.

    "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."

    On Monday lunchtime, Barton tweeted: "I will be making an announcement regarding my future, on here at 4pm today..."

    Re: Joey Barton To Make Announcement at 11am eastern

    Strong suggestions from @LukeEdwardsTele that @Joey7Barton released on free transfer from Newcastle. Are they insane? (Rhetorical question)


    #NUFC officials met Joey Barton this morning and told him he can leave on a free transfer. Club statement to follow.

    I'm sure Barton would love riding the pine at Arsenal and would never be a distraction.

    And i'm going to say this, Ashley needs to get the hell out. Selling our captain and top goalscorer and now getting rid of Barton. He's running this to survive, he's treating us like we're Wigan

    It is starting......

    Somewhere in those high echelons of NUFC, they have decided, I am persona non grata.
    I am on a free but the honour of wearing those B+W stripes, surpasses that
    One day the board might realise, what the shirt signifies. HONOUR and PRIDE. Thanks for your continued support........... #toonarmy

    I think Joey is a fool for continually calling out the board(not saying he's wrong at all), but he does understand what it means to put on the stripes. I will always like Joey Barton, I hope Ashley sells and the new owner re-ups him

    Yeah, can't really tell if Barton wanted to leave or not. If he did want to leave then this played out well for him. 95% of fans (in general, not Newcastle fans) already think he's a cunt so I don't really see him using Twitter to engineer a move out of Newcastle hurting his reputation.

    Barton spoke his mind which several other members of the club have done recently on twitter. Fair play to him. He was tired of sitting back and watching the club sell off valuable players.

    Man City did more damage to Newcastle than to any other club. You're never going to be a top 5 club again.

    Ashley will eventually sell. Fans aren't on his side already, and the moves this summer haven't helped his cause.
