After claiming his Fleetwood side are better than Sunderland’s ahead of his trip to the Stadium of Light, the Mackems official Twitter page asked fans to give Joey the ‘reception he deserves’ tomorrow – a comment that Fleetwood responded brilliantly to.
Before we get to the actual exchange on social media, here’s a few comments Barton has made ahead of Saturday’s game between the two sides:
“Newcastle do not have a game at the weekend so we might have a few more fans in the Stadium of Light than is normal for a Fleetwood away game – who knows?”
“On the pitch is where it matters, and I don’t see a David versus Goliath. If anything, I see us just better than them, man for man.”
Barton’s comments baited Sunderland into a reaction, and it seems their social media team couldn’t resist – only for them to be trolled by Fleetwood Town:
Let’s hope Barton has another successful trip to the Stadium of Light tomorrow.
