    Was it Joey Barton's ego being picked up?

    They've also got Oaks Lane shut off, which means you have to turn right at the abomination which is the Cundy Cross traffic lights if heading towards Stairfoot.

    That security guard from Oakwell thought he saw Barton in it and decided to stop it with brute force.

    That right turn onto Grange Lane is an accident waiting to happen. There's no filter arrow and there isn't much opportunity to turn because of oncoming traffic. That particular manoeuvre was far easier and quicker when it was a mini roundabout.
