‘England are sh*t at the minute’ – Joey Barton excoriates English coaching & Dyke Commission at Sport Summit debate

Joey Barton was at his sparky best at the Leaders Sport Summit today.

Sat next to, of all people, John Arne Riise, Barton laid into the state of English football with an opening salvo, ‘England are shit at the minute.’

He then went on to blast FA chief Greg Dyke for his plans to launch a commission to perform a root and branch revision of the English game.

Barton spoke lucidly and articulately, making some very good points in a humorous speech; he had the audience eating out of the palm of his hand!

Barton clarified his soliloquy via Twitter later on, making clear his core argument was the deficiency of English coaching versus management.
