Haha - deliberately ignoring mentioning that he wrote The Wrong Boy?
You where in good company, Steven Gerrard and his wife often eat at the Coterie pub. Joey Barton, Shaun Wright Philips (brother Bradley) and Jennifer Elliston all lived or still have a house here. oh and erm...........me
Barton is scum, sorry I know this has nothing to do with the thread but whenever I see his name, I think SCUM!
He's ok, maybe the demons are there but there's alot more to him then the hated aimed at him via the media. He moved to Widnes years ago and still has ties here. I'm happy for him to visit when he can. I hope he proves them wrong and stops letting them drag him down.
I can tell you alot worse about other footballers who are protected by the media (from now, it will come out)
