doubt it.

 

4 are a given. He pleaded guilty to one - that's 3 games standard, but with 2 reds already in the season, you can see that being 4 or 5 games.

 

They found him guilty of the second offence (headbutt) which he pleaded not guilty to. If Pepe got 3 for his attempt, Barton can't escape his.

 

12 is actually lenient

Hard to have major sympathy with Barton cos he acts like such a bell but It's a bit OTT

 

If someone gets a red card for violent conduct and then tells the ref to f*** off they don't get another 3 games on top.

 

6 games, 9 tops, would have done. Wasn't like he maimed someone.

 

Rooney booted someone up the a*** and the FA sends its lawyers in to fight his corner. Here they dish out 12 games. Not a prayer they'd have given that sort of ban to Rooney, Terry or Gerrard.

 

Teves started it with violent conduct off the ball - when's his FA charge being heard?

 

Or the City player who piled into him after?

 

Bit of consistency required.

His previous 2 red cards were results of retaliatory action after red card offences on him were missed by officials. Not a complete defence but something for him in mitigation.

 

He's clearly being targeted by opponents. If the officials do their job there's a chance all 3 reds might not have happened. I say might. I know he's no angel.

think he should have been done for the tevez red and the kick on aguero, the supposed headbutt on kompany was nothing really. not much different from the usual handbags when a player's already been sent. it's undoubtedly 12 games because of who it is but then he just seems a prick incapable of learning.

I imagine it's about intent though, he's already admitted that he was deliberately trying to goad one of theirs into getting sent off.

that was balls though, he was lying. don't see how what barton did is any way worse than ben thatcher's forearm smash that left pedro mendes unconscious.

Red card on Tevez = 3 games

Kick on Aguero = 3 games

Attempted headbutt on Kompany = 3 games

Previous sending offs mean an extra 1-2 games

12 is about right

 

Should have had 2 extra for generally being a t***.

 

On a serious note Mascherano got extra for not leaving the pitch as well against Utd all those years ago.
