isn't impressed with the attitude of his in-game character in Football
Manager 2012 - even threatening to quit the game because he was annoying
himself so much.
Barton got a taste of his own medicine when he took control of QPR on
the popular football management simulator but had to deal with an angry
and brash footballer - himself.
The 29-year-old had to contend with his overly argumentative computer game counterpart, and it seems even he couldn't stand it.
After playing the game for a while, he tweeted: 'Just had my 1st argument with myself on FM 2012.
'Gonna have to quit, cos am doing my own head in.'
The controversial midfielder was also annoyed by the makers of the game, who he says got his measurements wrong.
He continued: 'FYI @footballmanager I am not born in Runcorn. I
am not 5'9 (5'11) and I am not 11st (12st). If ur gonna do it
If all that wasn't enough, Barton then got into a Twitter fight with his perennial online antagonist, Piers Morgan.
Morgan said of Barton's character on another well-known football game:
'@Joey7Barton On my FIFA 12, your character dives, gets Gervinho sent
off, then sticks his head where he shouldn't, gets sent off, and moans.'
However, Barton retorted: '@piersmorgan on mine......... oh sorry your not on mine! #fatkidatschoollastpickorgoalkeeper #fifa12'
