Gareth Bale Vs. Joey Barton: Who Wins Your Strike Of The Weekend? (UPDATE: NO MORE MUSTACHE)


Barton's after the jump—a hit so clean and true it sends David Pleat into a[nother] confused daze.

It's got to be Bale, hasn't it? Pure wizardry from Dr. Cornelius.

[Editor's Note: A lot of the time, The Spoiler's "Britishisms" fly over our heads, but goddamn these are some nice goals.]


UPDATE: Joey Barton's goal helped propel Newcastle to victory, so—as reported previously—Barton was finally free to shave his mustache. Which he did.
