A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from The Chronicle that contains a link to an article on their website with quotes from Lee Ryder on Newcastle United’s performance against Manchester United and Joelinton.
“The standards and expectations of him are so low, he’s quite arguably one of the worst strikers over the last 40 years, what’s his ratio 3 goals in 54 appearances?”
“He had a decent game because the bar is so low. Worst piece of business in #nufc history, daylight robbery. As someone else has pointed out, if we’d paid a sensible fee he wouldn’t be here. Has anyone actually looked into the transfer? Thought not.”
“After 19 months of totally inept performances and a pathetic goal return any slight improvement would be reasonable!! Let’s face facts: he was never worth £40M and will never make it in the PL”
Do you think Joelinton was decent against Manchester United?
Yes, he did quite well
No, he was poor
However, these Toon fans continued to slate Joelinton.
“Is that a joke? He spent more time k the deck than on the ball”
“And lightly jogging behind almiron. Bloke has zero desire. He’s awful”
“The bar is so incredibly low that what he produced on Sunday night is considered reasonable- this is a £40m footballer. Quite possibly the biggest waste of money in Newcastle’s history – surely his price tag is the reason he keeps getting picked. Truly awful”
The 24-year-old was signed in the summer of 2019 for a staggering fee of £40m, and his goal return for that amount of money has been bad.
We understand why these Newcastle fans are angry, but we agree with Ryder that he played decently against the Red Devils and the statistics back that up.
