COMMENTARY

attacker may have only joined the club mere weeks ago, but it seems a large section of supporters are already regretting his arrival, well at least that was the case during the first half of the Magpies’ clash with City on Saturday. The 23-year-old forward notably missed a sitter against the Canaries that would have put Bruce’s side ahead, and to make matters worse Norwich then scored in order to go into the half-time break with a 1-0 lead. A couple of Newcastle dubbed Joelinton a donkey, while several couldn’t help but notice that the 23-year-old wasn’t as good as former Magpie . Considering that Saturday’s clash with Norwich, was only the 23-year-old’s second competitive game in English football, it does seem harsh that some Magpies fans below were already writing him off. Joelinton scored five goals and seven assists for Hoffenheim last , averaging a rating of 7.21 (Source: WhoScored), and it’s worth noting that he did impress in the Magpies’ opening league game against Arsenal as he achieved a rating of 7.08. So maybe, the Newcastle fans below should chill out when it comes to the 23-year-old fluffing his lines.
