New Sir Bobby book Newcastle United wanted Sir Bobby Robson to build a legacy that would have lasted for years after Kevin Keegan's dramatic walk out in 1997. Keegan's departure rocked the football world but Newcastle chiefs had lined up a spectacular deal to replace him within hours of his exit and in typical style Sir John Hall and his directors jetted out to Barcelona to get their man.

Fans' verdict on Joelinton Newcastle United secured their spot in the third round of the Carabao Cup with a 1-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers last night but it was hardly a vintage performance. On the plus side, Ryan Fraser became the third debutant in the space of just a few days to open his account for the Magpies but there are bad points too. Among them is the performance of Joelinton, a player who has struggled to adapt to Premier League football and has been burdened by his lucrative price-tag.

While Bruce also stated that he believes Joelinton will work hard and eventually come out ok, fans on social media were not convinced. Instead, they took to social media to express their concerns and many believe that it may be time to part ways with the striker or to send him on loan.
