All these ex players coming out to be pro Ashley shows how unaware or how little they care about the clubs their have played at. Not really brand new information but they have been employed and thrown ££££'s at them so I pay little attention to what the spenks say.

If only the right authorities in England looked into transfers here more, most are money laundering ‘deals’

Was no good for Rafa’s system but would be a big upgrade today.

Agree think he would fit in quite well with the current setup.

If we went to Fulham and gave £30m to bring him back I think we’d finish top 8.

you think he'd score at the same rate against PL defenders in a team that doesn't create chances for its strikers?

Yeah he’d fit right in with a team that are 20th for amount of crosses put in the box :laugh:

I don’t even think prime Shearer would get more than 10 under Bruce.

this is why i find the joelinton criticism particularly harsh, he's had f*** all to work with and his confidence as a young kid in a new country will be utterly f***ed

i fear for the lad under bruce actually, i think he needs to be in a deeper role but will never get it

As much as I’m not fan of Carroll, he’s made a big contribution to a few goals, I don’t see Joelinton sniffing those sorts of positions out. Like someone else has said, he’s probably a £20m player who might come good, but not as a centre-forward. I could see Mitrovic doing the Carroll role however if this is the way we’re going to play long-term.

he's not a line leader, i think that's one thing we can all agree, therefore the fault should be on bruce who continually plays him as one as if it's the only way to play football

In which case he’s an expensive £40m sub because he’d not be ahead of Almiron or ASM on the flanks.

Only way he might fit in is if we scrapped the wing-backs with three centre-back system, which would be suicide.

i won't disagree with what you've said, my only gripe is with criticism thrown at the lad himself, bruce "signed off" on him right?  hasn't a clue how to play him

fwiw if almiron & ASM are fit i'd play him deeper and those two more forward almiron left, get him to link between the CM's who are often too deep and the two pacy wide forwards with him coming up onto stuff a la firmino, which is another thing we completely lack - but again that would require bruce to know what he's doing

As bad as the 'uproar' is now I reckon it would have been worse had we not signed Joelinton and went with Gayle, Muto and Carroll instead.

We really need to sign a James Maddison type in the centre, an intelligent short to mid range passer in the final third of the pitch. Joelinton is suffering massively from Bruce's hoofball tactics, something Mitrovic would thrive on.
