Joelinton – Misunderstood or just not good enough"

Joelinton – Misunderstood or just not good enough"

For fourteen long years Newcastle fans pined for their beloved club to usurp the paltry £16 million record transfer fee spent on Michael Owen in 2005.
Hours toiled away watching Sky Sports News and tracking social media sightings of arrivals at Newcastle Airport were consistently to no avail.
And much like the proverbial buses, after a complete void of big money signings to alleviate fan malaise, Newcastle with the signings of Miguel Almirón and Joelinton broke their transfer record twice in quick succession.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Almirón for now remains fairly popular with the Newcastle faithful, despite his slightly haphazard approach to goal scoring.
Joelinton however, has faced much more criticism than his attacking colleague.
A lot has been written about Joelinton. Not much of it is particularly kind.
Even less of it seems to answer the key question surrounding Newcastle?s most expensive ever signing. What is Joelinton meant to be"
Straight away, it can be said that he was too expensive.
Even for a promising 22-year-old Brazilian forward coming out of the Bundesliga, £40 million seemed almost double his market value.
Those who watched the Bundesliga vociferously could hardly believe that Newcastle would shell out such a fee for someone who had far from set Germany?s top division alight. It seemed unlikely even at the time that Newcastle had unearthed a hidden gem.
However, despite an underwhelming, if not disappointing season by all metrics, there is more than one way to consider Joelinton?s far from illustrious first season in English football. The issue with Joelinton is more complicated than that of an Albert Luque?or an Emmanuel Rivière. The argument is not simply whether Joelinton has been good or not thus far in a Newcastle shirt. The answer to that is obviously a definitive no. The argument is however, why hasn?t he been good and will he ever live up to his price tag for Newcastle"
The Newcastle supporters are not wrong in directing their ire at their record signing. However, a large part of Joelinton?s problem at Newcastle is a matter of perception. Newcastle?s biggest mistake perhaps was the decision, upon signing Joelinton, to give him the sacred number 9 shirt.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The number 9 shirt for Newcastle supporters is imbued with almost Biblical meaning.
Not only must a Newcastle number 9 shoulder the responsibility of carrying the hopes and dreams of all Newcastle supporters on their back, but also, they must be a true number 9. A target man" Highly likely. A talisman" Certainly. A goal scorer" Always.
Standing at 6ft 1in, Joelinton is a physically imposing figure. Unfortunately, along with the 9 on his back, this has led to the assumption that he is a Carroll-esque target man and a natural born scorer of goals. He has therefore often been lumbered with playing the role of a traditional Newcastle number 9 bu...
