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.

    I never claimed to be more qualified in finance than Maguire

    It feels ridiculous, but we don’t know the intricacies & how it works. Documents have been moved around this weekend & there have been other bits of communication. What that leaves it, we’ll have to wait & see. I’m pretty sure the PL will feel the need to explain when it’s done.

    What is even happening now. How long can we be at the stage of the buyers are waiting to hear and answering questions.. it’s gone past the point of thoroughness and is now sheer incompetence.

    13 weeks to a typical 3-4 week process.

    Thanks very much mate 🙂

    I’m up for answering that one too.

    From my point of view, Brucey isn’t doing as badly as we expected in terms of results, but our performances have been woeful and we have had some luck along the way. He’s surprised a few by avoiding relegation, but I wouldn’t say he’s done a good job.

    What makes a fan a fan? Those of us from the region had no choice. People from further afield actually chose the heartache. Fair dos. A fan is someone who feels it in their bones. Kicks every ball.

    Jib.

    So if you accept that Maguire knows more than you do. when he said that links between the document we were discussing last night (the alleged deposit) and a takeover were “guesswork”, why were you arguing against this? He gave a detailed analysis as to why this did not confirm a takeover was ongoing, which you completely contradicted.

    You don’t help yourself and Tony Balloony was much the same – arguing for arguing sake.

    Like a few others, I was prepared to give you the benefit of doubt when others felt they could see through you. I was clearly conned!

    Kevin Vegan@166 Kevin i never said i dont appreciated your contribution on the blog, i look at all the comments on the blog, some i agree with and some i dont agree with, but everyone is entitled to thier opinion and respected for thier opinion, i also can see there are a few cliques on the blog who try to control the blog to thier narrative, thats fine it doesnt worry me or concern me as i have a mind off my own and i just ignore them and dont engage with them, kevin i was just trying to give you some friendly advice as your not doing yourself any favours by constantly disagreeing with people, they are fully entitled to thier views also whether you agree with them or not Kevin, dont worry if they are rude to you or insult you they are not worth it just dont engage with they and move on.

    Why don’t all those who have a problem with Kevin Vegan just ignore him. If he is the troll he’s being made out to be then he’d be buzzing from the attention. If he wins you up stop engaging with him. Mund, you’re constantly talking to him while telling people to stop feeding the troll, think about it and lead from example.

    You’ve overlooked his education through a number of top-drawer schools, leading to Sandhurst and presumably some higher education establishment which awarded his double doctorate in fantasy and bullshit.

    Unfortunately for your argument there are dozens of pieces of evidence that it is ongoing

    Kevin wud it be possible to just accept that probably 95% of us think there is a takeover in progress (it may fail or pass) and that you, Toon 22 and a bunch of others don’t?

    And just leave it at that?

    Just gone back in – and there you are back in early 2008.

    There are 3 others that are still about these days, but I was relating to ones that had been on back then and are still around now, but with changed ID or name.

    I came onto the Blog about the time that Ashley appeared and lesh it was then and lesh it is now – same I’d and email address. Note lesh being lower case.

    Some time back, someone was looking at long-term posters and I popped up in 2008 or thereabouts
