Great business eh......no goals, no impression, crowds falling. #Ashleyout. — Carole Bateman (@CabInStelling) December 8, 2019 How do you solve a problem like Joelinton? Firstly, he isn't a target man... but Newcastle need to play with a target man and Carroll isn't fit enough to play every week. Secondly, he is an inside left forward... but that means you'd have to drop ASM or Almiron #nufc #NEWSOU — Adam (@adamtweets85) December 8, 2019 Il say it again Carroll has offered more then joelinton has all season #nufc — Craig Johnson (@CraigJo06928576) December 8, 2019
