    Gayle's better in the air than Joelinton

    He's better at scoring headers but he's not as good at what I'm talking about.

    Joelinton is actually our only player outside Wilson with any ability whatsoever to hold the ball up..

    I disagree. His holdup play is shocking, especially for his size

    So who's better? I'm sorry but you're wrong

    Just to be clear in not saying he's good at it in saying he's the only one outside Wilson with any ability to do it.

    Gayle can't he's too small

    If you aim for Joelinton he may try and catch it but obviously he will miss.

    I don't think you can justify playing him just because he's big. He's a big useless oaf. Get big Duncs kid in if he's out like his dad

    It'll bounce off him and go out for a throw in

    I got ducks 4 months ago thinking it was a good idea and a laugh, they're noisy, **** all over the place and annoying......I threw a small soft ball in their enclosure 3 weeks ago and I swear to god when the useless twats trip over that ball they have more control than Joelinton

    Aye, but I plan on hitting the pubs like a tramp with cheesy chips on Friday afternoon and having already fought the 3 Bulls over their "Dwarfism" for my 7 year old going in after the Burnley cup game, I reckon I may be pushing it a tad with ducks in tow.

    That's not the justification it's because we can't keep the ball because we aren't good enough, so eventually we go long particularly when the other team presses, so if we don't have anyone that can hold it up then it'll just keep coming back.

    Couple that with the fact our defenders won't push up and it's a recipe for disaster.


    I can see 4 2 3 1 maybe working but you'd need a good striker for the 3 behind to play off which we don't have... Joelinton is sadly the best we've got...

    They rolled over in 2013 mate

    He defeated them... He's still here and the aim was to get him out correct?

    He is capable of doing things.

    I'm just wondering and it's a fair question whether the issue is Bruce or the players?

    You blame Bruce for Longstaff being **** not Longstaff

    Could it be that Joelinton isn't playing in a side that's suite him.?
