Lots of have taken to Twitter to criticise the display shown by Joelinton in the second half of their game against Villa in the League. 

Steve Bruce’s side went into the game sitting perilously close to the zone in 16th place and just one point above Scott Parker’s Fulham in 18th (via Premier League)

Without star Jack Grealish, Villa have only won one of their four games without their captain who has been sidelined a result of a leg injury picked up by the 25-year-old in training.

Joelinton has featured 21 times for the Magpies this season in the Premier League but has only netted once for United in the league this season (via Transfermarkt).

United bought the Brazilian from Hoffenheim in 2019 for £40m and it is clear to see the Toon Army do not feel he is living up to his price tag.

“Surely Joelinton has to be substituted?!! #NUFC

@MartinCLight

“Joelinton Is Such A Terrible Player The Analysis On Him Is Pure Waste Of Time.”

“Joelinton and Willock are not professionals.”

@Alexander_1link

” Joelinton is so so bad.”

@matthicksonsfc

” It’s beyond a joke that Joelinton is persisted with. Absolutely useless.”

@Thomas_NUST

” Joelinton is such a donkey.”

@downbadsir

Can NUFC survive the drop this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It is evident to see from the reaction of the Newcastle faithful that Joelinton’s performance did not please many of them on Tyneside this evening with the Brazilian taking the brunt of their frustration.
