While Newcastle United may be about to begin its tour of the United States, one important player won’t be on the plane. Renowned Smiths fan, ASBO candidate, and unapologetic hipster Joey Barton has been denied a visa by the U.S. embassy.

Instead, the most enigmatic player in English football will go with the Newcastle reserves on their tour of Holland while the first team plays friendlies against Sporting Kansas City, Orlando City, and the Columbus Crew.

The obvious explanation is Barton’s checkered legal history, but we have a sneaking suspicion that somebody didn’t want a “Joey Barton/Peter Vermes night out” to destroy most of downtown Kansas City.

Joey said the right things to the press, but as we know, Twitter is where common sense goes to die.
