Rather you hate him or not; he has been using his influence on twitter to get people to sign the petition to force the government to release the documents on the Hillsborough disaster.
Yeah, Barton really pushing that on twitter. Not that bad of a guy
Enrique fears for Toon

Liverpool newcomer Jose Enrique believes his former club Newcastle United are on a downward spiral following another turbulent summer at St James' Park.

• Pardew happy with Barton
• First XI: Tyne-Wear derbies
• Toon, Arsenal charged by FA
Enrique cited a lack of ambition at the club as his primary reason for departing and says many others, including the ever-controversial Joey Barton, will also head for the exit door before the transfer window closes.
"It is not settled like it is here at Liverpool and I think that is why everyone is leaving Newcastle. I think Joey Barton will leave soon and Andy Carroll left in January and it is really, really hard for Alan Pardew. You want to be as high as you can in the table but maybe Newcastle don't think the same and that is why they sell their best players and that is why everyone moves.
"The dressing room at Newcastle is fantastic, it is amazing, 10 out of 10, but of course it is hard for the players when the best players leave," he told the Guardian.
The left-back aired his concerns ahead of Liverpool's showdown this Saturday with Arsenal, the club with whom the Toon drew 0-0 in their Premier League opener last weekend. Barton was involved in a scuffle which resulted in Gervinho being sent-off in that match, but Enrique pinpointed Newcastle's lack of depth rather than the controversy which seems to follow Barton as the main problem.
"I do worry," he said. "Not because we leave, because at some clubs good players leave. But because they have not signed another left-back, nothing. I'm worried not for the club, but more for the fans because they are amazing. They are like here, it's really similar. I have a lot of friends in the dressing room and they are a little bit nervous because they don't know what the club is going to do."
Enrique himself caused a stir amongst the Newcastle hierachy prior to his transfer when he criticised the club via Twitter, but the Spaniard says he will not be creating any similar problems for his new bosses.
"The Twitter ban was hard and I got fined two weeks' wages but I didn't have any problems because I only had one year left on my contract and I wouldn't have cared if I had stayed for that one year. But I'm really happy here. But Twitter just gives me problems and I won't tweet again."
Mike Ashley will take us down before he ever gets us up
hahaha that lady was making the sign of the cross.

Barton embroiled in another Twitter row after 'mong' rant at Frimpong

Joey Barton has caused controversy on Twitter yet again after labelling Emmanuel Frimpong a 'mong'.
The Queens Park Rangers captain, 29, took to the site on Saturday to abuse the Arsenal midfielder after he appeared on Sky's Soccer AM.
Posting just hours before his side drew 1-1 with Everton, Barton also called the 20-year-old 'thick'.

'Two incredibly thick geeza’s these two,' he tweeted, before adding: 'F****** dullards........#spacecadets.'
Other Twitter users took offence to his comments and spoke out against the former Manchester City
and Newcastle player.
Barton responded: 'I am allowed to think people are thick...Think he’s a good player and sad to see him injured. #frimpmong.'
Comedian Ricky Gervais has previously been criticised for his use of the word ‘mong’ on Twitter.
Mencap said using the word could reinforce prejudice - but Gervais insists the word has changed meaning to someone who is an idiot.
Crocked: Emmanuel Frimpong is out for the rest of the season
Barton is no stranger to Twitter turmoil; last month he insisted he was ready to go to prison, after being accused of making remarks that could have prejudiced the race trial of Chelsea defender John Terry.
Frimpong is set to miss the rest of the Premier League season after injuring his anterior cruciate knee ligament in a challenge with Barton last month.

No idea he was coaching now
I can’t imagine the process involved in agreeing that Joey Barton is the man to lead your football club.
To be fair Fleetwood Town also employed Jamie Vardy.
