Some Newcastle Fans Are Growing Very Skeptical About Joelinton Deal

As we wait for what we hope is the pending announcement of a new record transfer in Hoffenheim forward Joelinton. Some fans can’t help but be skeptical.

You can’t really blame any of them as yesterday Forbes reported the fee could reach as high as £48m which seems so unlike Newcastle under Mike Ashley.

While we suspect things are progressing and could even be completed by now, the announcement could be delayed as the team return back from China today.

Yesterday Hoffenheim captain Kevin Vogt spoke of Joelinton’s move to Newcastle, though he did suspect that Newcastle would not be his final destination. So there is little chance this is a ruse by Mike Ashley and company.

Here are some of the fan reaction to the seemingly endless amount of time it is taking to announce Joelinton.

    Bobby i totally agree 300 out of 48k toon match going fans isnt alot at all. It is actually quite diabolical. Even worse no one was young about 4 or 5 under 30s if that.
    Got to ask them where they?

    Our Toon, absolutely mate. It’s all about money and they’re on the gravy train too. They should look at his actions and stop the prize money. It might hurt us for one season, but it would make him sell and stop it happening again.

    Anyone read about the food Nufc China put on in the bar for fans on the asia trip?

    They had different food items named after different Nufc stars over the years and they had a Ashley sandwich on the menu, if you ordered it you got nothing….

    Hahahahaha they even have Ashley Sussex in China

    Completely lost track of where I was before I had to go to work but I wanted to address something someone asked on a few pages back.

    Why Bruce if there’s a takeover? He’s cheap. Simple as that. I think he needs someone to act as a caretaker and Bruce is the best option. Even with the compensation he’ll have to pay to SW he’d still be cheaper than most free managers at £1M a year with a 3 year contract. Other managers would want 3-4 per year and a much longer contract. Bruce is chicken feed.

    Martoon – re: Man City. Mansour had the advantage in that purchase because Shinawatra was a very, very willing seller. He needed to release equity because his assets in Thailand had been frozen pending criminal charges. Mansour did use an investment/brokerage firm in some part, it was PCP and Amanda Stavely who helped secure him finance but he sought investment AFTER he’d purchased the shares from Shinawatra.

    Twittersphere is abuzz with a rumour that Joelinton is being unveiled at 6pm so keep an eye out. If we do unveil him, I do think there’s a takeover on the cards. Not before the window closes but definitely within the season. My dad used to say that nowt was more predictable than folk; Ashley, if he has sanctioned a £46M move for a player, is definitely acting well outside of his normal operating procedure. Something has to be up…

    Genjikai, unfortunately, for all the mouth, they don’t care. They just feel big sounding off. It’s nothing new.
    You need to target the FA/PL and demand they do something. Target Sky about continuing to give him money. It’s not the gate receipts that attracted him after all, it’s the Sky money.

    100% agree, mismanagement should mean no prize money from league. That’ll sharp sort out the idiot owners

    I was outside SD the other night, not telling how old I am.

    I stood at the back with the woman and her dogs, think she had a Spain top on.

    That’s me done for the time being, might be on later.

    Have to say it’s been a pleasure debating today, it’s amazing how good this place is when fans listen to each other and dont bicker over petty little things. Catch you all later, OP keep your head up matey the youngsters will come back once the club is in the hands of a better owner

    The FA should stop Nufc loaning players…

    It’s a piss take considering the money the club generates.

    It’s like Bill Gates asking for a overdraft, totally unnecessary

    Optimistic, although Bill Gates probably does spend his own money a lot, most Rich people spend others money because the interest they pay against what they borrow is covered, (and more), by the interest earned by their investments and cash in the bank. First rule of finance, don’t spend your own cash. 😀

    Talking of laughing stock (there’s nothing else for it but to do so)

    I want to know who is in charge of Pies ! Yes that’s right Pies . Bruce needs Pies and we don’t want a shortage where we have to go cap in hand to the Mackems or Shotton Colliery welfare band to see if they have any spare ones .

    I think we will have to bring in a Director of Pies .

    Perhaps Brucie should ask Fergie if he will take the job ?

    Join the gravy train .

    I’m taking the peas.

    Supper anyone ?
