    So, how does this w..ker keep getting away with it?! Despite accepting a charge of placing 1260 football related bets, one expected to result in a lengthy ban, his latest hearing has been postponed probably until late April, which leaves him free to carry on playing for Burnley until almost the end of the season. He could effectively help keep them up! Unbelievable, if that was one of ours the FA would be falling over themselves, they wouldn't be able to hold the hearing quick enough!

    So, he escapes off to Scotland, gets booted out from there, comes back, and the FA can't do enough to accommodate him and Burnley. Could have a massive affect on the run in.

    He's a mong, but a half decent player at the same time, but not the sharpish tool in the box judging from his performance on Question Time...

    He had a hearing date, but the bloke chairing it was taken ill and it was cancelled, no idea why it's taking so long to reschedule.

    The Chairmen of the clubs that might be affected should collectively bring some pressure to bear.

    I don't like Barton (for the dirty player aspect more than anything), but with Burnley Andre Gray got a ban for twitter comments he made years ago and banning betting on matches you aren't involved with seems a kind of silly rule. He's an idiot not knowing about it though, or just ignoring it. I'm not sure how much it helps them anyway, they don't seem to have been that good with him there this season. So maybe the controversy he stirs up does them more harm than good.

    Gee I wonder what Bummers could be on about here. I'm sure we won't have heard this one before.

    It hasn't been revealed as match fixing at this point to my knowledge. He seems a compulsive gambler, another sign of stupidity.

    Of the nine people charged in Italy in 2011, only one was charged with placing illegal bets, the other eight were charged with match fixing.

    I have read of many, many reports in UK media claiming match fixing in Italy when it was nothing more than betting on matches not involving the players found guilty. FACT. You could probably now also post a hundred articles from the UK media referring to the Calciopoli that saw Juventus relegated as 'a match fixing scandal' despite there not being one single accusation of match fixing in the investigation, never mind them being found guilty of it. FACT.

    What about that report of their football program missing out controversial decisions from match highlights. And there was a relegation match that had to be replayed because of how biased the referee was.

    On 1 June 2011, Marco Paoloni was arrested following an investigation that showed he had poisoned his own team's water bottles in a failed attempt to throw a game against Paganese to settle outstanding gambling debts. Further investigation showed he had also worked as an agent for match fixers in games he was not personally involved in, in Serie B and Lega Pro. Italian FA (FIGC) subsequently issued him a 5-year ban; on 18 June 2012, the term was extended another 4 years.

    Calcioscommesse, Paoloni: "In una spirale di bugie ho perso lavoro e famiglia"

    Isn't the Italian motto, "if you're not broke, don't fix it"?

    What's your point? I don't think I have ever said that nobody was accused and charged with match fixing.

    Nice one, so the Italian match fixing scandal did involve match fixing, it wasn't just about people betting when they shouldn't.

    Glad we got that one cleared up. <ok>

    I have never said there has been no match fixing in Italian football so it makes your point moot. I said people who bet on matches not involving them - exactly how Joey has - have been accused of match fixing - which Joey wasn't.
