Welcome to the world, Barton Jnr

Joey BartonFour years ago today I wrote a post about how Joey Barton had just been charged with assault. Again.

He has hardly been out of the news since but last night after QPR’s 1-1 draw at Swansea actually tweeted some positive news, namely the arrival of his and partner Georgia’s first son:

“He’s here Cassius Joseph Barton. 7 pound 3 oz. Mother and baby are fine. Wow what a blessing that is.”

A Christmas baby, a blessing indeed. And doesn’t it make a change for Barton to be in the news for the right reasons for a…sorry, did you say Cassius? They’ve named their son Cassius, as in Cassius Clay? As in the name Cassius of Latin origin, which means “empty, vain, hollow, poor, or robbed”?

Erm, no further questions your honour.
