Barton is currently enjoying his loan spell at Marseille, but was quick to criticise his former team-mates following the Hoop’s relegation on Sunday afternoon, describing some members of the squad as “maggots” shortly after the team’s 0-0 draw at Reading. The 30-year-old revealed it would be tough to leave the French club but Fernandes said on QPR Player: “Marseille have got to put an offer in. Joey is under contract and Joey would be a very useful player for Queens Park Rangers.” He added: “He helped Newcastle out (of the Championship). Some would say we lacked his fighting spirit in the midfield. “But if Joey and Marseille want (the transfer), then we will talk. However, he is a QPR player, and is contracted to QPR. “That has to be a financial deal which would have to be worked out if he wants to go to Marseille, but as far as I am concerned he is a QPR player and in the summer will come back.” Harry Redknapp is set to remain in charge next season, despite failing to guide the club to safety after taking over from Mark Hughes last November. The former Tottenham manager brought in the likes of striker Loic Remy and defender Christopher Samba on big-money transfers during the January window. While both players are probably unlikely to be part of the Hoops’ fight to regain their top-flight status, Fernandes remains optimistic the west London club will have a squad capable of mounting a sustained promotion challenge. “We have been through it. There are many players we want to keep, some players we think don’t want to stay and some players who are going to move on, but it is not insurmountable,” the Malaysian businessman said. “I am a positive person. People would say I am not realistic, but if you go through player by player, we will sort them out.” Press Association QPR chairman Tony Fernandes maintains wantaway midfielder Joey Barton is still very much their player.
PHILADELPHIA — Eric Devendorf leaned in from the perimeter of the huddle and gave a simple order to his team, one fitting for the enigmatic former Syracuse guard.“This is where we step on they neck,” he said aggressively.Boeheim’s Army had stretched a three-point second-half lead to 14. It was the first time since the opening minutes 15th-seeded Basketball City NYC was comfortably in the rearview, and the SU alumni had a chance to put them out of sight completely following a timeout with under 12 minutes left in the game. And courtesy of a balanced scoring effort – Devendorf led seven players in double figures with 14 – second-seeded Boeheim’s Army eased to a 87-59 win in the opening round of The Basketball Tournament at Philadelphia University on Saturday night.They will play the Broad Street Bullies (Temple alumni) on Sunday at around 4:15 p.m. in the Round of 32.“When we got up 14, we just needed to extend that lead,” Devendorf said. “That’s what we did.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Published on July 16, 2016 at 9:11 pm Contact Matt: email@example.com | @matt_schneidman Boeheim’s Army jumped out to a 10-2 lead, punctuated by an emphatic slam from Hakim Warrick. The former SU forward known best for arguably the most important defensive play in program history (the game-sealing block with 0.7 seconds left in the 2003 national championship game) drove baseline and palmed the ball before posterizing an innocent defender and smirking while Brandon Triche grinned and flung both his hands in the air.“I just wanted to show ‘em I still got it,” Warrick said with a grin. “I think cause I’m old I only got a few a game, but I can still get up there.”Five players made multiple buckets in the first half, led by C.J. Fair’s nine points on 3-of-8 shooting. Fair flew cross-country from Las Vegas to Baltimore and attended his uncle’s wedding following his final NBA Summer League game on Friday night. The 2014 All-ACC first teamer scored in a variety of ways, including his patented “pivot on the low block, lean into the defender with his right shoulder and float a left-handed shot off the glass and in” that helped earn him consensus All-American honors two years ago.Basketball City wouldn’t go away, though, down only five at half, and Rhamel Brown delivered his own posterization on Rick Jackson to go along with what seemed to be a 3-point bucket in response to every Boeheim’s Army score.“We’ve got a lot of people that everybody recognize so everybody’s gonna step on our throat,” Baye Moussa Keita said. “We’re gonna have to do the same thing to them.”That’s exactly what they did, heeding Devendorf’s orders, and a tightly contested game became somewhat of a farce.After Terrence Roberts flushed a two-handed dunk, he made sure to hang on the rim a little extra and rip at the net on his way down. Devendorf urged the team to not relent so as to intimidate opponents. The frustration was tangible for Basketball City, as Tyran De Lattibeaudiere slammed the ball to the court with two hands heading into a timeout.And a game that was once in doubt finished anything but.
