Video – This Is What Newcastle Are Getting With Jonjo Shelvey


Here´s what Newcastle are getting with Jonjo Shelvey – if we can sign him from Swansea – hopefully today.

All kinds of passing ability from the England International midfielder,  in some of the games he played in August last year – including against Newcastle.

    Thanks for that article on Shelvey. That confirms my words. Newcastle don’t seem to get that aspect. They never learn.

    @Blackley – Liverpool sold him because he wanted to leave to play and had a bunch of players ahead of him that they’d spent alot of money on.
    Think at Swansea, hes their most valuable asset that they can sell whilst already having players at the club that can come in and play his position. They are desperate to sign a couple of strikers.
    One of the problems shelveys having at Swansea is his style doesn’t fit their philosophy that much. Hes been criticised and dropped this year because of his impatience to try and make something happen with a cutting through ball or a 30 yard effort rather than ball retention. Personally I have no problem if he comes here and has an effort or 2 from 30 yards or tries to play what the welsh press call ‘Hollywood passes’. (wales online)
    Wish we had a couple more players that tried to unlock defenses.
    Think the overall feeling is that Shelvey doesn’t want to be at Swansea, and the guy they’ve put in charge doesn’t want him either. Risky to promote a coach as we’ve seen in the past here. Curtis seems to be set up to defend first from what i’ve seen?
    I liked Shelvey in his england performances. And he didn’t get called up for nothing. He’s arguabley swanseas best player regardless of what their press are saying.
    The last 3 times i’ve seen him play against Newcastle he’s been the best player on the pitch each time!

    Sparky,

    Since Obertan signed for Newcastle he has got more assists than Townsend in his Premier league career. Obertan has played less minutes during that period than Townsend as well.

    Nice article to read though mainly it just says he didn’t fit at Swansea and says he may have a attitude issue but doesn’t confirm it as they have no proof. Plus u can always find someone who will have bad words to say on players, just look at the propaganda put out on our leaving players

    Personally am still happy with Shelvey coming in he’s not the best but he is better than what we currently have (Saviet aside because I know next to nothing about him)

    @WWSBRD – yeah, Lazio back as a force then? I’ve not watched Italian football since Maldini retired. Loved it in the early 90’s, must have put out many a window trying to be Papin and van basten on the volley but since the match fixing scandal the league for me is well behind the EPL, la liga and Bundesliga. I work in in Holland and France a fair bit so follow their leagues now and again, id have no time for life if i watched serie A 🙂

    That Wales Online article even mentions they have no idea what he’s like on the training ground.
    Swansea for me have gone very newcastle this last year. Did amazing to finish 8th, in which Shelvey was most definately a vital catalyst. All their play came through him.
    They then sold their top striker, barely replaced him, didn’t invest, sacked a manager the fans loved, replaced him with a coach…. be shocked if Shelvey wasn’t unimpressed.
    Lets be honest, we’d have backed any newcastle player to the hilt had they been unimpressed with the clubs antics last year!

    Think Shelvey could be good, but we need a pacy CF to run beyond the Cbs for him to play these throughballs. We currently have no-one who turns the Cbs and runs in behind.

    just looked at the video and from what I’ve seen it looks like he’s always looking to put players through quickly and that’s definitely what we need at NUFC…whether or not Mitro will make the runs to get on the end of them I don’t know but I think Winji will be very pleased to see passes of that quality put through as often as he does if he plays in the hole.

    None of us have any idea as to how the team will change to accommodate Saivet and Shelvey and possibly an other coming in…so I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see 🙂

    Spoof,

    There’s an argument that he’s a breakthrough signing. An established Premier League player.
    And there’s one that he’s a typical opportunistic signing from the seconds bin.
    Neither or both might be true. Either Swansea or us may end up looking like chumps.
    Though Norwich are selling someone back to Bournemouth for £7m, so there is a bit of it about.
    Welcome back by the way.

    Must say mate I’ve not watched it Italian football in a very long time only when the teams play in CL and even then it’s not a priority

    Supposedly they are a league on the up though but who knows. I only really watch PL these days as u say time is the main issue plus I get sick of watching other teams and comparing them to Newcastle it’s depressing

    Whenever I have watched Swansea in the last few years Shelvey has been one of the best players on the field in near enough every game !

    He bossed Cabaye and Tiote and he can take set pieces and score goals from outside the box !

    Still need a centre back , left back , left winger and striker or it will be another failed window where we have not got what we need

    Would take Remy on loan to guarantee us the goals

    The lad undoubtedly has ability, no question about that, but his attitude has got to be questioned, surprisingly he is only 23 year old so hopefully his past has just been immaturity but now coming up here at his age may be what is needed to finally add a bit of maturity to his persona, if so then he is a great signing, if not and he turns out to be as difficult as Ben Arfa was, then we could be in trouble, we are taking a gamble with him, lets hope it pays off.

    I hear that. However, it sounds like wishful thinking to me. Looking too hard for reasons to be positive. At Liverpool or Swansea or any team good players play. Same with Townsend. Liverpool and Swansea are our level more or less. These lads aren’t failing to command a place at Barca.

    True though his attitude issues at Liverpool were just because he wanted to play (Gerrard was annoyed when he left because he saw a future him in Shelvey) and Swansea could be put down to their implosion this season

    He seems to struggle to accept poor play from others and he’s willing to tell them, I like that and think we need it

    But yeah it’s a gamble though if he had come in during the summer people would of loved it I’d bet because he was THE player at Swansea last season. Time will tell though but I am happy he’s coming (fingers crossed)

    Thanks for the welcome, its nice to be back,

    I agree with your comments about Shelvey, as it stands either us or Swansea could have egg on their face whilst the other is laughing all the way to next seasons PL fixture list and the riches that come with, time will tell which of the two clubs got the better deal.

    While they aren’t totally overwhelming signings ( provided all is concluded) at least the primary area of concern, our lamentably dishevelled midfield, is being addressed in some way. Time will tell as to whether this is all cheapskate and stop gap, and our illustrious coach knows what he wants to do with them 😐 – having said that owts better than nowt atm.

    “He seems to struggle to accept poor play from others and he’s willing to tell them, I like that and think we need it” if that’s the case then he’s going to have plenty to say if he does come here lol.

    To be honest I’m glad he’s here as well, but at the same time I’m also concerned, looking at your words above are part of what frightens me, the last thing that we currently need is bad feeling amongst the players, and that could so easily happen.

    Seems like most fans have been crying out for someone to give our lot a boot up the chuff so well have to make our mind up what it is we want, a leader and some grumpy French men who play properly, or another whispering bob and some nonchalant French men who don’t bother. I left any other nationalities out due to being a bit nonchalant.

    Hopefully he will haha

    It’s true that kind of attitude could cause issues but we’ve had the say nothing approach since Nolan et al were shown the door and it’s not worked at all

    I’d take the change right now

    We buy more rubbish than good players. Why is one relegation threatened club selling a player to another? Surely you keep your good players in a relegation fight? And Swansea do not need 10 million if they stay in the league. They will get 140 million next season from SKY just to stay up.

    enough already!

    I admit I was purely going off Hodgsons love affair for him and on the basis he’s english and and an english international so if it went t!ts up we’d not lose much and therefore worth the gamble.

    If however he’s worse than Obertan then I’d like to officially remove any positive thoughts or comments I’ve made about him on this blog and I’ve just sent myself to the naughty step for an hours contemplation.

    This is how they claim to operate.
    They track targets for a long time and sign them when they come within the crosshairs of the transfer policy. Like Saivet.
    But they are prepared to snap up an apparent bargain that fits the template if it becomes available. Like Shelvey and Colback (also English and Premier League) before him.
    This will probably be followed by some book balancing elsewhere in time.
    To me, this isn’t evidence of a new policy, but of the old one operating as they have described it.
    It is measured and prudent and I welcome it. as I did the summer signings.
    But the question is still whether it is yet enough to be sure we are going to climb rather than stay in the same place.
    As it was after the summer.

    Sparky,
    Ha, fine, I’ll stop! When I went to check out those stats I wasn’t expecting that result mind, I knew it would be close but expected Townsend would probably be a bit better off….

    Amazing what a couple of signings do for the mood of the blog!

    As for Shelvey having a go at players who are under performing, good. About time someone in that 11 didn’t put up with mediocrity and worse. We are in need of someone who will kick a few arses.
