The Twitter Thread


Recommended Posts

Indeed stevie, it's safe to say for all bartons "image" he doesn't have the head to back it up.

 

Intellectually I doubt anyone off here would struggle to put him in his place, which is why he has a dig at someone's appearance on twitter instead.

Least that kid just has a daft typical students picture, and he didn't moon thousands on the tv, stub out a cigar in someones eye etcetc.

People in glass houses.....

 

I'd happily be as smart as I am with the money i've got and not be known for being a scumbag, than be able to kick a ball like barton and have to reinvent my image because i've been a dick.

 

(Bet Morrissey thought he was a knob and all)

What the fucks been going on? :lol:

My twitter comments about Barton appeared in three national newspapers this morning, Barton got emotional, and started abusing me then had no comeback. That was it. Read his timeline today, you will cringe more than when Keith Chegwin got his willy out on national telly.

he's become as bad as the reality TV stars he mocks in that he seem to be clambering for any attention he can get

Watching your banter with barton the pat few days has literally had me in stitches, the blokes gone into meltdown over his own self importance and doesnt seem to realise how funny it is to everyone else!

 

Special credit to Tom for his relentless dogged pursuit of slipping mcondalds into as many situations as possible xD

I would of been happy for Barton to be sacked after he got arrested, but I don't see anything wrong with his comments regarding suicide. Baffles me that anyone would be offended by it. For starters, Gary is unfortunately dead so he won't be offended by it, and his family and close friends will be upset because by his death, not a comment about suicide as a wider issue on a twitter feed. Storm in a teacup imo, people looking to lash out after a tragic event is understandable though.

Staggered by this post quite frankly. I know people, especially younger people concoct a view when they don't really have one, but he's probably still hanging there at 3pm on Sunday while the police and forensic people are on the scene, and that arsehole is debating the morality of suicide and whether selfishness comes in to it. 6 hours after he's done it, well thank god I was brought up with decency, and I appreciate not everyone else is, but thank god I am.

He said one questionable word amongst many positive ones tbh.

 

Some people see the word 'selfish' and deem it to be offensive. Which is their pregorative but I too find it somewhat baffling that people overreact to it so much. It's just a somewhat ignorant comment and if anything is selfish it's the act, not the person. It's a type of selfishness that you can't really blame anyone for, especially if it was fuelled by depression. Just the act, which is what Barton was talking about.

 

What he shouldn't have done however, is said it at all. Especially on the day the man died. It's something to debate, if he has to, when some time has passed. Even if he wasn't looking to offend anyone, which he inadvertently has done. He's also reacted very poorly to the backlash.

I can understand the question of timing, but in all honesty the biggest effect Speed's death has had on me is to make me ponder suicide and clinical depression (even though we don't know if he suffered it or not) quite a lot over the last 48 hours. I believe that discussion is a good thing, especially about things that are hard to understand and talked of little.

It's like this:

Obviously it's callous shitehawk reporting of the highest order, but if the underlying story - five professional footballers have been in touch with the Second Chance clinic since Speed's death to seek active help for depression - is true and it begins to get rammed home to even Daily Star readers that this is a serious problem that affects Real Men too... who knows. A little something good might come of the whole thing.

 

Or one of the tabloids will blab their names and they'll be taunted into oblivion from the stands every week. :dunno:

Regardless of the actual event - factual or fictional - they have a habit of portraying things so crassly. Bear in mind the man pictured has just died they have to use the phrase 'on the brink' when the reality would perhaps be a bit less awful.

And it infers that there must be seriously wrong with you or you must be ready to top yourself if you ask for help.

 

Typical from the likes of the Star.

Re: Barton the toxic press will be loving the opportunity to jump all over his comments in their usual haughty and hypocritical manner. That said, if Barton wasn't such an egomaniac I think he would've came out with usual 'deeply saddened' type comments. But no, he had to take the opportunity to remind us all what a profound philosopher he is. If he'd made his comments a few days later it would've been different.

Spot on as well there, Meenzer.

That's fine, but if 10 people take offence to it you say alright apologies, let alone thousands. The bloke is a fucking idiot, he'd be doing a long stretch with his axe murdering brother if he wasn't a footballer. He's a stubborn fuckwit.

The irony being the parallels between you and him. How many times have you offended people on here with your rants on the 'world according to stevie' and then refused to apologise?

Depends if the person I've offended is a mug or not, hence why I can't recall ever apologising to you.
