Striker Reveals Transformed Teammate Has Been A Big Hit In Dubai



Joelinton made his return to the side in our disappointing defeat at Everton before the break. Eddie Howe was weighing sitting the Brazilian for a third straight match to give his groin some extra rest.

However, it turns out Joelinton didn’t need the extra recovery time as he also played in the midweek friendly in Dubai, bagging himself one of Newcastle’s five goals. Allan Saint-Maximin and Dwight Gayle had braces in the hour-long practice match.

It appears that Joelinton has recovered from his groin problem, and hopefully Saint-Maximin is getting closer to full fitness ahead of Saturday’s clash at Tottenham. A match Newcastle need a result in to avoid a third straight defeat.

Callum Wilson, who is inching his way back to fitness, again spoke to the Footballer’s Football Podcaster. Joelinton’s prominence under Howe has become a popular topic of discussion in recent months.

Wilson spoke about his teammate but touched on a different aspect – how Joeinton is quite the character behind the scenes. Newcastle World has published the following from our reigning Player of the Season about Big Joe:

“When you’re in the club environment day-to-day, everyone is on a different timescale so you’re not actually all in one place at the same time even though you’re in the same building.

“Out here (in Dubai), when you’re all just around the pool, you do see that different side to them and their character.

“Joelinton is definitely somebody who you see him around the place, his English is fairly good but when you get him around an environment where you’re around the pool, having a laugh and a bit of banter… what a guy, what a character.

“It’s made me like him even more as a person and as a player. He’s definitely somebody who has stood out for me since we’ve been out here as a team. I’ve enjoyed his company.”

The pair seem to have an excellent relationship as Joelinton relinquished the number 9 to Wilson before this season. Joelinton has since been transformed into a very effective box-to-box midfielder.

He also seems to be getting a lot more comfortable as his English improves. It was a rough start for our record signing but things are looking very bright for his future under the magnificent Eddie Howe.

    Glad Joelinton does not have a hernia as first reported. When I heard it I assumed an operation would be needed and that’s the season over. He has been an absolute revelation has big joe. One of the biggest transformations in recent years IMO.

    Hopefully Trippier and Wilson are back ASAP. I hoped Tripps would be back for the Spurs game but that’s not gonna happen. With those 2 back soon will really strengthen our team even more.

    I’d be gutted for Wood if Wilson came straight back in as he has done so much good work since we signed him. I know only one goal but he works very hard for the team.

    You addressed a post at me on a previous thread (it started ‘Surely every newcastle fan must be happy with him now, I’m so happy personally, ….’) and I’m puzzled what you could be referring to.
    I’ve assumed it’s Eddie Howe.

    In all honesty, I’m both surprised and delighted he’s had such a positive impact on the club and the players, considering the shambles Bruceyboy left behind.

    Eddie Howe’s been like a breath of fresh air and let’s hope that we achieve the points to ensure Prem status soon and allow him and the powers that be plan for next season.

    Yes mate exactly that and I agree with everything you wrote re Howe, he really has been a relavation and I’m so pleased they chose him, he’s young enough and ambitious enough to take us where we want to go, I’m looking forward to the journey under him, bring it on

    Nowt the matter with gay fans.

    Interesting that what I did say gets twisted into something that was never mentioned or intended.

    If you boyyyyyyyyyzzzzzzzzzzzzz are trying to get off with one another it would be better perhaps not doing it on this site.

    Before we know it there will be reports throughout Essex that Darnik will be Essex’s second most wanted man as he will be hurdling fences and hedges with Rom through all of Romford’s back gardens stealing washing off the washing lines. Like a double pronged assault. Dressed up like Batman and Robbin very only fools and horses-esk 😉

    I’ll have to politely disagree about Wood working hard. I think he only managed to get his first tackle in during one of the last two matches and all his defensive stats are equally non existent. He doesn’t run about that much either. His passing is under 50% too. That’s incredible. Mr Magoo should be expected to hit 50%. To me, he looks well past it and the stats seem to show an even bleaker picture. Just because you look a bit knackered, doesn’t mean you’ve been covering ground. Most likely just means it’s time to call it a day. Look at Willock he’s all over the pitch but a few call him lazy because he makes it look easy. He probably has to train like hell to get fit enough to do that.

    Without a doubt, one of the strangest statements made.

    “Eddie Howe will not sign any player in the summer who does not want to join Newcastle”

    I understand exactly what is meant by “That Statement”
    Eddie woun’t sign hangers on!
    He won’t sign anyone who is after a fat pay cheque!
    He won’t sign anyone who is not prepared to give 110% for NUFC if he is in the team or not!
    He won’t sign any whimps!

    He will only sign players who will always give 110% for the cause! and that’s exactly the way it should be. “One for all & All for one”

    Eddie Howe was not my 1st choice to replace Mr Bruce after he departed.
    He was in my top three though!

    I’ll tell you what though – I struggle to think who could have done as well as Eddie Howe! He’s a top man and a top manager and I hope he is assoiciated with Newcastle United for a long long time!!!

    ZG,

    Your post @27 interesting what you are saying there. I actually understand what you are saying to a point. But Wood, is much better than what you have put in your post mate IMO…

    When I see Wood play, he puts himself above all over the pitch, he is defending at set pieces, and runs the line well. I appreciate he has not been great the last 2 games I will agree there . However since he came in he does so much of the donkey work up top and is most definitely a target to hit.

    My opinion is he could do a wee bit better and that is down to confidence as I think he tries too hard to impress and that can effect your game hence why his last 2 games were not great.

    He has won so many duels in the air and flicked the ball on, however unfortunately, we didn’t have the runner’s.

    I like Wood, I do like his style of play, and he changed our whole dynamic when he started for us. He was that focal point we desperately needed and adds extra height where we are now dangerous from set pieces. When trippier gets back. That will be good for Wood as the deliveries will be better and more frequent.

    Munderpants – you do not need to fluff your feathers – your behaviour has worked and you have attracted Fenham to your bondage lair. No doubt you’ll have him/her tied up pronto with ropes and chains. Then the fun will begin.

    Release the fool.
