Joelinton Signing Does Little To Placate Ashley Frustration

Newcastle have smashed their record transfer in signing Brazilian striker Joelinton from Hoffenheim for reportedly £40m.

This is their first transfer of the summer and comes very late in the game. Newcastle are again way behind in their recruitment and have a lot of lost time to make up for.

We are glad that Joelinton has signed and he seems like a great young man. We are still furious with Mike Ashley for his continual negligence in running this club.

As with all things Newcastle, this signing has seemingly split the fan base with some thrilled to get the 22-year-old on board, while others have been so beaten down by Mike Ashley’s running of the club they can hardly muster any feelings of joy whatsoever.

There is a subset of the latter group of fans who have taken to Twitter to voice their continued frustration with Newcastle United under Mike Ashley despite the record signing.

Here is some of the negative reaction to the Joelinton signing. To be fair, they are not slating the player as much as airing their frustration and skepticism for the owner of this club.
