Joey Barton slams FA for length of John Terry ban

The footballer Joey Barton has also criticised the FA's decision over John Terry as "a shambles" compared to his own 12-game ban for violent conduct.

The QPR midfielder was suspended for attacking Manchester City players Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero after he was sent off in the last match of the 2011/12 season.


4 games? A years worth of investigation, a four day FA hearing and only a 4 game ban? Suarez got 8 didn't he? WTF's going on...


Well I think that proves a lot. What an absolute farce. 12 games for violent conduct and only 4 for that. FA should be embarrassed #shambles


Ah well at least it's over and the people involved can move on with their careers. I was expecting at least a public execution after a year


John Terry found guilty by FA

John Terry has been banned for four matches and given a £220,000 fine for using insulting words which included a reference to Anton Ferdinand's colour or race following an FA independent regulatory commission hearing, the FA have confirmed.
