Joey Barton ready to quit Newcastle over Twitter Row

NEWCASTLE United were today understood to be looking into comments made by Joey Barton via the social networking website Twitter. The Chronicle understands that Toon boss Alan Pardew is far from impressed by the outburst, exactly one week since Jose Enrique was fined £100,000 for hitting out at the United board. Barton criticised the United regime just moments after yesterday’s game. 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.” He added: “If it wouldn’t effect (sic) team morale and cause unrest within the dressing room, am certain Jose’s comments would be the tip of the iceberg.....” Barton then said: “And again it would be left to those magnificent fans to pick up the remnants of their once great football club,” ending that he had “had enough of certain people”. The player’s remarks prompted a mixed reaction from fans, some in support but others claiming that he had eroded team spirit.However the latest development Barton tweeted just before 1pm 'I will be making an announcement regarding my future, on here at 4pm today'.Leading to speculation that he may be ready to quit the club
