Hero From Yesterday Just One Of Many Waiting On Lee Charnley


Jonjo Shelvey kept his place yesterday against Manchester City despite Sean Longstaff being available after his 3 match ban had ended. Steve Bruce stuck with the enigmatic 27-year-old, and it proved to be the right move as he put in a shift that culminated in a wonderful 88th-minute strike to rescue a point for the Magpies.

With Jonjo, it’s a bit of a mystery what you are going to get at times. Though he has improved his performances since coming into the team for the win at West Ham.

The London-born midfielder has long spoken of his desire to stay at Newcastle. With his contract having just over 18 months to run, he is one of many Magpies in line for a new contract.


It’s still not a certainty that Jonjo will be offered a new deal. Last month, there was a report that Jonjo was next in line to get his extension. However, there’s been no more talk of any progress on that front for Newcastle.

After his timely performance yesterday, Shelvey again reiterated his desire to remain at Newcastle. The Chronicle have published some comments from Jonjo about extending his stay in the North East:

“At the end of the day, I’m playing for a new contract now. I want to stay here, and hopefully a contract will be sorted.

“The kids love it up here – they’ve got their friends here.”

There’s just so much work to do for Newcastle to get some of this squad on new deals. A few, including two standouts yesterday in Federico Fernandez and Javier Manquillo, have just six months remaining on their contracts. Matty Longstaff is another who can leave on a free in the summer.

Then there is a bunch whose deals run out in 2021. One of those is Jonjo Shelvey but there’s also Fabian Schar, Matt Ritchie, Isaac Hayden, and Freddie Woodman to name a few.

It’s vital that Lee Charnley gets some of these players tied up long term. We just hope he has it in him to get it done before it’s too late.

    The next Mike Williamson – personally I think we’ll thrash Sheffield United 1-1.

    Dougie can prime members watch it for free or is it something you have to pay extra for?

    Yes Bob I am but I still wouldn’t have thought matches were included in that? I’m new enough to prime, never watch anything on it, only get it for the free delivery.

    IrishRob – you’re embarrassing yourself. And you’re supposed to be in MENSA?

    I’d also expect someone in MENSA to know the difference between ‘loose’ and ‘lose’. Don’t even bother saying it was a typo because you typed it repeatedly.

    83 totally misread you’re last comment, you really need to use commas. But I agree hes worth 12-15M although I think 12M is probably a fairer amount now. Things can change so much in a few months and he isnt quite worth as much now in my view that hes not scoring, injury or no injury.

    Telling someone they need to use commas when you don’t have a clue how to use apostrophes? Looks like you’re (see how that was spelled?) both ignorant and lazy.

    Ok but the song I’m on about was wrote by Barry Gibb and released by the Beegees in 1987. https://youtu.be/xviuC-0FwQ0

    It was ‘wrote’ by Barry Gibb, was it? I mean I know you’re definitely in MENSA because you said a doctor was present when you took the tests so it absolutely has to be true, but the evidence looks to be otherwise.

    IrishRob – so let me get this straight. Answer this simple question for me – are you saying that ‘whoosh’ is an incorrect spelling? Yes or no?

    Rob’s gone a bit quiet, hasn’t he? Wonder if he’s thinking of a third name to call me after ‘dope’ and ‘ballsac’? I’d love to see the triumvirate complete.

    St Max is as exciting as any player I have seen play for us.
    I saw Green, Ginola, Robert and HBA.
    Clearly has not achieved to the level of some.
    I am talking about when he gets on the ball.
    You’d have to be at the game to fully appreciate it.

    The concern he causes opponents.
    The anticipation in the crowd.

    St Max is still a young player.
    In our system, which is needs must, he often has to track back like a wing back.
    Often he gets the ball deep and is isolated.

    Can you imagine how he would have played if he had been in Cities team yesterday.
    They would work the ball into the final third and just give it to him.

    If he was allowed to just drift between the lines like Silva.
