Barton to go Wilde on Thursday?

| 03.08.2011

Joey Barton is 2/1 with Ladbrokes to quote Oscar Wilde on Twitter on Thursday.

The bookies are now taking bets on which pearls of wisdom the midfielder will share on the site next and make The Smiths/Morrisey their 1/2 favourite.

It’s 3/1 he quotes a past or present PM and 12/1 he delves into the work of Confucius. Chinese general Zun Tzu is a 25/1 chance and it’s 50/1 he uses any line from The Full Monty

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We’re on tenterhooks waiting for Barton’s next quote. It’s no secret he’s a huge fan of Morrissey and Wilde’s also got a massive chance.”
