Having had a frustrating time with his metatarsal injury over the last few weeks it looks like Joey Barton could be set to resume full time training within the next ten days and give Big Sam a welcome selection headache in the middle of the park. With Derby and West Ham probably coming too soon for him wouldn`t it be ironic if his first game back was against his former club Citeh at Eastlands? With the Arsenal cup game also coming up it looks like it could be a busy few weeks for the lad. His court case is also on October 4th, meaning we should get some sort of closure soon on the whole Dabo affair.
