Fleetwood Town boss Joey Barton hits out at Premier League pair



Fleetwood Town boss Joey Barton has hit out at Premier League pair, Glenn Murray and Troy Deeney, who have both become very vocal with their concerns over the 2019/20 season resuming.

It has emerged in the last 24 hours that Fleetwood are amongst the League One clubs pushing for the season to resume after a postponement of over two months, with Barton’s side sitting fifth in the table and with a chance of winning promotion to the Championship if things can get underway again.

Higher up the footballing ladder, both Murray (Brighton and Hove Albion) and Deeney (Watford) have been very vocal with their reasoning for not wanting the season to resume; Brighton and Watford are fighting a different battle to Fleetwood, with their Premier League status on the line.

And, with the debating heating up right across the UK, Barton has taken a swipe at both Murray and Deeney on his personal Twitter page, where he wrote:

Amongst the other clubs in League One still keen to conclude are Oxford United, Portsmouth and Peterborough United, who make up the rest of the play-offs alongside Fleetwood.

Ipswich Town and Sunderland, who are outside the top-six, are also pushing for that.

The Verdict

It appears that where your side are positioned in the league table is where you stand on the season resuming.

Those at the top want things wrapping up, with promotion on the line, but others towards the foot of the table are looking to disrupt things as much as possible.

You aren’t going to please everyone and whenever the season is concluded, there’s going to be some seriously unhappy clubs.
