RE: the great joelinton dilemma

Eddie's transformed him from a lazy, clumsy, anonymous waste of space into a hard working tough tackling beast, he's reminded him of his physicality (as if he shud need reminding) but in the past he would be getting muscled off the ball by shortarsed midfielders and pint-sized right backs, not any more, he's the facking daddy now and he's knocking them off their feet, he now snarls his way thru games instead of strolling around thoroughly disinterested.

So he isn't fucking shite after all...alls he needed was someone smart enough to find him a position in the team where he can express himself, where he can use his power and aggression, where he can feel more appreciated by the players and the fans instead of feeling like a £40m flop all the time.

He has been really good last few games especially last night. As stated he is playing in the right position and reaping the rewards for it.

RE: the great joelinton dilemma

If he keeps up with these performances, £40million is going to seem pretty cheap, he was immense against Man Utd.
Who could have thought we could be seeing him being one of our best players week in week out, his work rate is second to none and he's making some good runs, his passing puts us on the front foot and his tackling/interceptions are very impressive also.
I'd like to see him score a few more though.
Fair play to Longstaff for his defence of him in his interview, I thought the interviewer was a bit out of order with what he said.

Wins a few tackles and people creaming their pants. He still scores no goals.

Preventing a team from creating scoring chances is as good as scoring for me. He's shown he's not a natural goalscorer, so for him to change his game and become a dominant, hard working, ball winning midfielder who can pick a pass is a big plus. He was the type of player we were missing, so I'm happy with his transformation.

He was playing under Bruce, who thought he was a striker.

Thank fuck we've seen the back of that useless bellend.

Bruce played him out wide when he realised he wasn't going to score goals

It was obvious then that Joelinton was a half decent footballer - just not a striker

What exactly did he get wrong - he kept Ashley's side up comfortably each season

There has been a complete turnaround in the club philosophy under the new owners - every single element of the club is no longer based on 'just enough'

Yet Howe has only won one game since he came - that is no reflection of aHowe at the minute, just the size of the task at hand even though the oil tanker is slowly turning round and heading in the right direction

He still should be a lot better going forward though Dick.
