Joey Barton has gone fairly quietly about his business this season. After rather embarrassingly saying he’ll never play for QPR again last season, he’s back and playing well in the fight to get Harry Redknapp’s side back into the Premier League.
But his season took a sour turn when he got struck with a bottle in yesterday’s top of the table clash against Burnley.
Burnley won the match 2-0, handing QPR their first loss of the season. But Rangers are second and well on course for immediate promotion back to the top flight.

To be fair to Joey, he didn’t react and was very gracious in defeat. Hopefully the perpetrator will get his due punishment for their mindless antics.
Congratulations to Burnley. Throughly deserved all 3 points today. Nowhere near good enough from us.
