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.

    And he’s right, our club makes a huge profit relative to its size. We are among the 20 richest clubs in the world but we certainly aren’t in the top 20 most successful. From a business POV, Ashley is doing exactly what he wants to do.

    Now, are you honestly going to try to stand there and tell me that you are better qualified to analyse this document than Maguire? On what basis? What are your relevant qualifications and experience that mean you are able to see absolute certainty where qualified experts only see “guesswork”?

    You still didn’t actually answer this question at all. You just deflected, as anyone with PR training does when faced with a question that they do not wish to answer.

    Vegan – just thought that would be a nice day on the blog when you went back to work but it seems it won’t happen.
    As for just getting your life back, (on here 24/7) you must have had a pretty crap life before.

    I only found out a couple of days ago so not had much time to think it through. I’d been offered some decorating work again recently as part of a firm rather than self-employed, so trying to negotiate that currently. Just painting, no prep work, so hopefully it won’t mess my back up again.

    If that doesn’t come off I’ll have to look elsewhere. I always quite fancied working in a garden centre so might try something like that. Might even go back to study again.

    Funnily enough mate I have to keep asking because people keep dodging the question and then throwing cheap shots. I wouldn’t still be asking the same question if Jib hadn’t dodged the subject and then slagged me off.

    Kieran Maguire has highlighted how Newcastle fell away from progressing as a club like Tottenham has. I wouldn’t call that harping on about how great of a financial model Ashley is running — two relegations considered, too.

    The only financial perk of Ashley being so tight-fisted, is that the club has reportedly plenty of room to spend within the limits of FFP. And that’s after Ashley has taken some of his loan back (for his own mistake of relegating the club), and paid around £1 million for a decade+ of advertising.

    I don’t see Kev as a WUM. He is dogged as hell. Wow. probably the journalistic background. But he seems genuinely trying to engage debate.

    Personally I couldn’t give a monkeys who thinks the bid is genuine or not. Trying to convince someone doesn’t make it real. It’s one hell of a dry debate. Give me ‘is Bruce doing a good job?’ any day.

    So 10 years working at a bank and you think that means you’re more qualified in finance than a lecturer of finance at liverpool university?

    I worked as a decorator for 10 years. Does that mean I’m better qualified to discuss the chemical structure of paint than a chemistry lecturer?

    Everybody answers you and you go back at them.

    Why do you think your some godly figure where everybody has to give you your answers? You have something like 10 debates going on at one time.

    Why even ask your not even a fan stop pretending.

    You say you won’t go to a match until Ashley is gone but you’ve supported them since you were 3. My calculations because arnt you 36 or something close? Ashley has been here since 2007 so take away 13 years we land at 23. Then you say you started supporting the toon since 3 so take away young age say let’s get to 18 that’s 5 years you could of made the journey to see your beloved club and you didn’t even try?

    For what it’s worth, if you’ve identified only one who’s kept the same name since 2007, your research ain’t complete.
