He’s Carried Injuries In Previous Seasons – He’s A Very Good Player For Us


When you a manager, you often get what you expect from a player or employee.

So if you don’t think they are very good, that’s what you get.

On the other hand, if you really rate a player they usually start playing well.

And that seems to be what happened with Jonjo Shelvey under the guidance of Newcastle manager Steve Bruce.

Bruce has always rated Shelvey and Jonjo has played well for Newcastle this season.

It seems that Jonjo has a slight injury at the moment, so he may not start tonight against Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-final.

This is what Steve Bruce said about the midfielder (shown above) in the Chronicle today:

“He scored the equalizer against Man City.”

“Jonjo is a very good footballer who has bought into everything we’ve tried to do.”

“Physically and the way he is, he has always had a natural football ability because that has come easy to him.”

“It’s the other side we have worked on him physically and mentally.”

“Jonjo has been a very good player for me.”

“Certainly this season he has been very good in general.”

“I only judge him on the performances he has put in for me.”

“I think he has carried an injury in previous times during previous seasons.”

“I don’t think that ever does you any favors and I think he’s learned that.”

“You have to be 100% right.” “Especially a game of this magnitude, against Man City.”

“The sports science is quite incredible now.” “We set him targets to go and hit and improve in training.”

“Jonjo is right up there. Physically he’s put himself in really good condition.”

“He has a bit of a niggle and we’ll see how he is but a fit and healthy Jonjo gives us a very good footballer.”

Shelvey recently signed a new contract that will keep him at the club for another three years.

But if we get new owners, it’s not clear if Steve Bruce will be at Newcastle next season: that’s even if we do very well through the end of this season.

One-third of our fans think we will lose the game tonight.

    Anyone having luck in claiming back their refunds for Single games such as the City Cup Match ?

    Guess what – the link provided by the club to do this isn’t available – Ashley not paid the leccy bill again ?

    FCB said he wouldnt sell until we won something. Wouldnt it be ironic if we won the fa cup whilst waiting for approval. Ironic but kind of depressing that he could and would claim that as his legacy and success.

    No matter how hard you pretend , no matter what rubbish you post – you know deep down the takeover will succeed.

    It’s happening whether you believe or not.

    No way are the Saudis walking away and letting Qatar win.

    That’s not happening

    All these concessions on piracy are all part of the process to help them pass the tests.

    It’s HAPPENING

    Re Gao – appreciate its the S*n, first article i found..
    https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/3422978/premier-league-blocked-gao-jisheng-200m-southampton/

    Also an article in the Athletic
    https://theathletic.co.uk/1667094/2020/03/17/are-southampton-for-sale-gao-jisheng/#:~:text=Gao's%20initial%20attempt%20to%20purchase,in%20corruption%20cases%20in%20China.

    “Gao’s initial attempt to purchase Southampton, using the Lander Sports Development (the non-UK entity) as the investment arm, was blocked by the Premier League board in April 2017 because Gao failed its “fit and proper person” test after it learned he had twice been involved in corruption cases in China.”

    But, i guess you can deny its validity as its from journos, i dont have the minutes of the PL meeting available….

    The biggest improvement in Jonjo is the control over himself. He’s always going to be prone to red mist, but he went to Rafa for help, got it, and seems like he hasn’t looked back.

    Come to think of it, it’s been a while since I’ve heard commentators describe him as a liability.

    Logged onto my account at NUFC yesterday and there is nothing about a partial refund or account credit for the 5 home games I’m missing. This is what happens when costs are cut to the bone. But I don’t care about my money if the takeover happens. They can have it all and some.

    Kev V, from previous.

    The Swansea takeover bid started in April 2015, and was`nt completed til mid July 2016, that is a total of 15 months, a huge chunk of that time was consumed by the O&D test.
    I guess it all depends which article you read about it, you can guarantee they will all have different time scale such is the inconsistancy of journo,s.

    That is not evidence. Can you quote from the EPL that takeovers are completed in 2-4 weeks?

    Thank god! Reading previous it sounds like hes going to play Dubravka. Unless hes trying to throw City off with that statement, but doesnt make sense because it’s not like Darlow is exactly a secret weapon that hes going to spring upon city at the last moment.

    Not sure that contradicts anything I have said to be honest. I said the Saints takeover was slow because the O+D test was failed the first time. So this actually supports my claim, does it not?

    Today we need pace all over the pitch, especially up top. Defending is their vulnerability so they need to be concerned about us getting in behind then. They will then be reluctant squeezing too high up the pitch which will give us a chance of holding onto the ball. But I’d play Carrol as he’s the best bet of keeping the ball in their half and releasing our speedsters.

    KV – your quote last thread

    “Southampton’s owners failed their initial bid for the club, so that’s what caused the delay as far as I can tell. Where did the idea that it was the O+D tests come from? Can you provide a link?”
