Arsenal to try again for Joey Barton if QPR get relegated?

Despite the English hardman Joey Barton’s antipathy towards many Arsenal players, Arsene Wenger is still a great admirer of his “English grit” and has decided to try and sign him again this summer if QPR get relegated.

Barton again put in an excellent performance against the Gunners yesterday as QPR put a block on Arsenal’s attempt to make it eight wins in a row in the Premier League, and it looked like Wenger’s team was being “bullied” by Mark Hughes tactics.
