A lot of Newcastle United fans are talking about Joelinton’s latest performance for Newcastle.
Was Joelinton that bad on Saturday?
Yes, he was awful
No, others were worse
However, this isn’t enough for these Toon fans who want to see more from Joelinton.
joelinton vs norwich (h)
– 9/11 aerial duels won (most in game)
– 2/2 dribbles completed
– 2 chances created
– 1 shot on target

– isolated week in week out.

I’ve been trying to defend him but his movement has been dreadful. There was more than one occasion where we had the ball in attacking areas and he just stood still next to a defender who was touch tight. He may be isolated but Rondon flourished in that role last season.

Joelinton is not fit to be the number 9. Rip that shirt of his back.

Who scouted Joelinton and thought paying £40 million was a good idea. He couldn’t score in the championship. Doesn’t deserve to wear the shirt, let alone the iconic no 9. #nufc

@PeteGravesSky has the question ever been asked…. How was the purchase on joelinton processed? Who authorised £40million on a player with such a poor career record? I think there is business outside of football involved… #ashleyisacrook

What do we think?
Apart from that, he did not have a chance, but what more can he do when Newcastle create an opportunity per game for him?
