A LOT OF us failed to believe Newcastle bad boy Joey Barton when he tweeted recently that he was to meet Morrissey at Glastonbury.

The former The Smiths frontman contacted the controversial midfielder to offer an invitation of an audience at the music festival.

Barton tweeted this picture late on Friday night in between succinct reviews of The Vaccines (“decent”) to Two Door Cinema Club (“decent”).

Later, Beyonce organises a tweet-up with Paul McShane and Method Man from the Wu Tang Clan pokes Lucas Leiva on Facebook.
