image for Joey Barton To Face New Disciplinary Charges
Tut tut, he never learns

Joey Barton, the Newcastle United midfielder and ex-lag, is to be further disciplined after incidents in the Newcastle v. Aston Villa match on Monday, during which, the player spat, sneezed, coughed, cleared his throat, belched and farted.

He was also said to have had mud on his boots.

Match referee Steve Bennett has reported Barton to the FA, and he will be dealt with at a special hearing on 24 November.

It's not the first time Barton has upset football's ruling body. He was recently released from prison after attacking Ousmane Dabo on the Manchester City training ground whilst both were City players. Two years ago, he was also involved in a rather unsavoury head-pummelling incident after an argument in a Burger King queue.

Referee Bennett has told the FA in his report, that Barton "spat on the grass" and farted after chasing a through ball late on. The official claims the offences were serious enough to warrant notifying the top brass.

Said Bennett:

"He had been warned, but he just doesn't take any notice. Now it's up to the FA to decide what to do with him."
