Did well today. Was fouled all day long too and the ref gave him f*** all.

Agree. Blatant two hand push by rudiger at one point. I thought he worked his bollocks off

Playing injured apparently according to Bruce. Had to play him at Everton because there were no strikers on the bench. Yet also suggesting we wont need a striker as Carroll, Gaye, Muto might be fit after the Norwich game when we have a two week break.

Regardless Joelinton is like it or not our best striker. Hopefully he gets a rest at the weekend.

I'm not sure about him being our best striker like... He's our most likely striker to be fit, that's about as high praise as I can give him.

It would be interesting to know how many goals Gayle or Muto would have got with a 20+ game run in the side. I think they'd have scored more than Joelinton's 1 league goal.

Joelinton has a groin injury and has been carrying the injury for at least 3 games.

He's not a no.9 and he's certainly not a target man yet we persist in trying to play him like one.  If we insist on playing hoof-it-at-the-strikers-head-and-hope-it-bounces-somewhere-useful-ball then play Carroll up top and rotate Almiron, ASM and Joelinton around him.

Still have a feeling there could be a player in there, his all round game is good in my opinion. I know not everyone is going to see it, but I like his touch and how he looks to play in those around him. The main concern is still that he doesn't seem to strike the ball very well.

I agree with this completely. You'd have to think the striking issue will solve itself if they find a role for him and he gets some confidence back.  Needs to play as a false 9 imo.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave

They'll betray you in my name

He had an absolutely golden chance, clear shot at goal from ten yards out in the middle of the box, the ball not an especially awkward height - and he put it into the middle tier of the Gallowgate. I haven't watched as much as some this season but, based on everything I've seen, I can think of very few strikers we've had over the last couple of decades with less composure and instinct than Joelinton. For all the comparisons he doesn't get anywhere near Shola.

Plenty of great strikers miss guilt edged chances.

They get opportunities to score again continuously though, and improve.

This poor lump of ours is on a hiding to nothing though.

I pity him. Sorry situation all around.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Some people want him to do well so badly they can't have anything bad said about him.

Do we play great attacking football and create chance after chance for him? No. Would a better striker have scored a few more goals by now? Yes.

The 2 aren't mutually exclusive. Put Rondon in his place, and he'd have scored more headers than Joelinton has goals in total. Put Demba Ba up there and he'd be able to make his own chances as he did under Pardew.

People need to chill out and just enjoy the comedy value of this lad for the minute.

Muto or Gayle would almost certainly have scored more than 2 goals if they'd had as many starts as Joelinton.

Hopefully one of our other strikers will recover from injury so Joelinton can get taken out of the side.

Oh I don't mind at all :lol:

The guy is a disaster at the minute, but is he as bad as he looks currently I'm not so sure at all.

The whole operation is laughable.

I watch Solanke not manage to score in that Bournmouth team that for all it's defensive frailties, still get forward and threaten up the pitch and I think that it is easier to evaluate him as a striker in that situation. Just to use an example really.

Yep, Gayle would be in the right positions to score where Joelinton isn't. He might need 10 chances to score a tap in, but he'd have more than 2 by now without a doubt.

Muto wasn't even considered when he was fit, presumably because he's not a 6 footer. Joelinton has started far too many games, partly poor selection, and partly spending money on crocks.

He wasn’t like. That’s a third division defence he’s playing against and they did him for offsides and he missed a strikers goal chance.

He’s not a target man.

If he had buried that chance or been onside for either goal, I'd have said it was an excellent performance
 He held the ball up well and often pushed us further up the field.

However, he didnt score and strikers have to score. Even if it's just 10 a season, they must get double figures and Joelinton just cant.

Even our defenders can get them going in off their arse.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
