Club Career

Club(s) Began as an Everton FC trainee, but was subsequently rejected. He then joined the Nottingham Forest FC Youth Academy, and was released for being too small. He became a Manchester City FC trainee in 1997, and signed professional forms on 5 July 2001. Following a turbulent and bad-tempered City career, in which he made 130 Premiership appearances, scoring fifteen times, he joined Newcastle United FC on 14 June 2007 for £5.8 million.  In the summer of 2011, Barton spent his time criticising the transfer policy at United and was placed on the transfer-list. After a controversial period in which Barton made 81 league appearances, with a return of seven goals, he joined Queen's Park Rangers FC on 26 August on a free transfer and was instantly handed the captain's armband for the 2011-12 season. He was sent-off amidst disgraceful scenes in their last match of the season against Manchester City FC, the same match that saw his former club win the Premiership Trophy. He was banned for twelves matches, so it was decided he would be loaned out. He had played 26 Premiership matches, scoring three goals. On 31 August 2012, Barton joined Olympique de Marseille, where he still served his twelve match ban, and so began his French career playing in the UEFA Europa League. He made 25 French league appearances. Barton returned to QPR for the 2013-14 season.

Beyond England

In September 2000, as a result of Tony Adams' experiences with alcoholism and drug addiction, Adams founded the Sporting Chance Clinic, a charitable foundation aimed at providing treatment, counselling and support for sports men and women suffering from drink, drug or gambling addictions. However, the charity set up by Tony Adams has always had an ethos of never turning someone away for financial reasons.  This is where the Tamsin Gulvin Benevolent Fund comes in to help us assist those not currently supported by a professional body.  The Fund will provide the opportunity for ALL sportspeople to benefit from Sporting Chance Clinic's services. This is the side of the charity of which Joey Barton is Patron. - Sporting Chances.

England Disgrace

Barton was jailed on 20 May 2008 for a serious assault and affray.  Barton was captured on CCTV in Liverpool on 27 December 2007 punching one man 20 times before an attack which left a teenage boy with broken teeth.  Sentencing him to six months in jail, Judge Henry Globe QC said it was a "violent and cowardly act".  This follows a catalogue of incidents including stubbing a cigar of then-Manchester City FC teammate Jamie Candy in December 2004.  Injures a pedestrian in an early morning road accident in May 2005, also an altercation with an Asian fan in July 2005 - All before he was capped by Steve McClaren.
The racist murder of Anthony Walker in McGoldrick Park, Huyton. Two local youths were later found guilty of his murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. They were 17-year-old Michael Barton (brother of footballer Joey Barton) and 20-year-old Paul Taylor.
