He maybe not be the most popular footballer, but well done to Joey Barton for starting his own blog . I would say to anyone that it is the most liberating thing you can do (social media wise).
I may not agree with Joey on his views but to put it in pixel and then put it out there (knowing you going to get stick/abuse etc) is good in my view.
The good thing about having your own blog is that you have a space to write/publish what you want, this brings me onto another point tho, why do people go onto other peoples website/blog and ask them "why are you not reporting or covering X"? (start your own blog then you can report the stories you want).
Anyway , just a short post and would like to wish Joey Barton all the best with his blog.
