New Signing Tipped To Be Real Star On Tyneside


It seems that Newcastle got the very best deal of the January transfer window when we brought in Jonjo Shelvey for £12M – and of the four players we brought in – one on loan – Jonjo could be the one that makes the difference between us staying up this season.

The former Swansea, Liverpool and Charlton central midfielder has made a good start to his Newcastle career and against West Ham and West Brom at homes – both wins – Shelvey has been the star and Newcastle have looked a very good side.

Now if we can replicate our home form on the road we have to have a decent chance of avoiding the drop.

Jonjo+Shelvey+Newcastle+United+v+West+Ham+gGpl9ssrAU7l

Jonjo Shelvey – in action for Newcastle

His former manager at Swansea, Garry Monk – who was surprisingly fired in December – has said the best is yet to come from a very creative player who is still only 23 years old:

This is what Garry Monk has said about Shelvey:

“You forget how young Jonjo is.”

“He’s got his peak years ahead of him and I think, once he learns that consistency in his game, you’ll see what he can do.”

“He’s got that magic ability to be able to pick passes.” “He can be a match-winner. That’s the key, but he needs to get that consistency in his game.”

“I’m sure going to a club like Newcastle United in front of that many fans and that type of club will suit him.”

We should get a decent idea how we will do away from home from now on – since we are at Chelsea on Saturday in the early kick-off game (12;30pm).

Given how pathetic we were last time on the road at Everton, we expect a much better display at Stamford Bridge and we could even take something out of the game.

A point would be good but what we really need is to shock everybody and get a win – that’s what we really need.

And it’s possible too.

Howay The Lads!!

    Just watching SSN. He’s admitted two charges of grooming and sexual activity with a minor. Very surprised the Scum haven’t made an announcement to disassociate from this paedophile .

    Not that I would know where to look but I was wondering what their own fans are saying about it. If he squirms out of this there needs to be a huge public outcry.

    He is a lying scumbag mate, what is surprising is that Sunderland have yet to make a statement, I would have thought they would wanted to distance themselves from him.

    The chron is saying his career is in jeopardy after his admission of guilt, I would have thought it was over.

    Shelvey’s clearly been a good buy but he seems to be a player who needs a supportive crowd to play for. He seems to raise his game at home but switches off playing away. Maybe Steve Black needs to work on that side of Shelvey’s personality and at the same time, try to identify why Gini seems to fade when playing away.

    Martoon he’s denied the other charges tho so I’d imagine he’ll have to go on trial if they don’t withdraw them wonder if that means they have to wait to sentence him for the ones he’s admitted too
    surely he can’t carry on playing until then tho

    I bet Johnson’s fiance and her father feel as though they’ve been well and truly taken in by him. They’ve supported his claims of innocence all the way and must be feeling a tad miffed.

    However, that’s life

    12:30 would be Eastern time in the US – isn’t that where Ed’s based? I didn’t even think twice about it until I read all the comments – I’m in the Central US so I normally see times Eastern and have to bring them back an hour to put them in my frame of reference (late kickoffs are on at 11:30 here). I suppose it would probably make the most sense to say when they will play using local time, but I’ll side with Ed on this one as I’m on his side of the pond.

    Belated reply, been a bit tied up.

    Happy birthday, and yes you have to keep the brain cells occupied. I wish I was 66 again and knew what I know now. 🙂

    I do have an Android phone and Tablet and a lot of geeky friends who speak the same gobbeldygook I’ve been reading. They do explain how things work and I sit there sagely nodding as they do so but ten minutes later and whoosh it’s gone. I am getting there though.

    Thanks for good wishes

    It can be best to play dumb and let the young- un’s set things up and then just enjoy but when it goes wrong you are in trouble.

    I am amazed at some mates younger than me who years ago couldn’t even set up a VCR timer – remember them? that will confuse techies on here 🙂

    It is a fast moving world is technology and it is very easy to get left behind even if interested. You seem to be doing well anyway and don’t worry this Kodi stuff isn’t mainstream as yet.

    Youtube is also a godsend for all this ( and fixing showers, finding new bands etc) often while away wet Fri afternoons instead of wasting them on Blog 🙂

    I suppose he had to fess up when a signed “happy 12th birthday” card signed “Adam” was produced. To think a few years ago there was no little disappointment that ‘born a Geordie’ Johnson signed for the inbred. Fitting now though. Eh?

    Must admit I’ve been thinking of looking at youtube if only to properly work out how the camera works, must do it soon!!

    Did look at a Android for Dummies book but they are often just as confusing.

    On a football note I suppose Shelvey is the new Austin.

    He is ours though so I’m happy with that.

    I know what you mean and I just can’t understand how the wives etc of folk accused of activities that fly in the face of honesty in a relationship, can even be with them in court let alone hold hands etc.

    Presumably the defendants’ briefs must persuade them that being seen to stand by their man (or woman) is something that will sway the court. Innocent until proven guilty of course but smoke and fire come to mind.

    Thanks for wishes.

    On youtube – it can seriously take over your browsing life if you are not careful – more addictive than this place and with also with some to avoid.

    It is almost like if it isn’t on Youtube it doesn’t exist 😉

    You tube is pretty good though not always accurate. It is always my last resort, I prefer a step by step guide, most have links to help with software etc.
