Were it not for a late PK goal by Stoke’s Jonathan Walters against now-relegated Bolton, it is pretty safe to say that QPR captain Joey Barton would be a very unpopular person in West London tonight.  While Barton’s sending off failed to doom the R’s (simply because of Walters’ equalizer), it’s also likely he’s won himself the ire of Manchester United fans, mindful their club could well have won the EPL title today had the Stupor Hoops’ self-styled intellectual not left his team shorthanded at one of the most crucial times in club history.
