He would walk into our side, but long term he's an uninspiring signing really. I like him though, he has some good attributes.

Everyone at Blackburn wanted rid of him and he was on the verge of been sacked when we came along with a big fat cheque and took him off their hands

I still think he'd improve us a little but it's this kind of 'this'll do' signing that got us in this mess. Sign us a realiable goalscorer please.

Some people calling this a class signing? Ok, he will improve us but so would almost every CM player in the league. Class signing? No way.

One person

So shoot me... well, actually just remind me. That is, shock horror, if my fans-eye opinion of somebody I would have loved to sign from Liverpool proves wrong. I would think about making him captain, shake the f***ers up a bit.

Midfield is our biggest weakness and Colback is a footballing haemerrhoid, so Shelvo is a positive move.

Buying PL experience from a PL club? Bring it on.
Colback would still start man. :anguish:

I think he would add balance to our CM, hopefully getting rid of the 2 DM axis of evil.  He's obviously got some quality and the much sought after "premier league experience".  If a new club helps him get back to form whilst giving us a different dimension then good.

Everyone does realise if we don't sign him we're carrying on with the Anita/Colback/Tiote perm 2 from 3 axis of evil right ?

Potentially it's a very good signing. Dunno what went wrong at Swansea but he has the potential to do very well in this league. Can see the fans liking him as well. Like Colback but good.

Worth remembering that when we signed Gary Speed (from Everton) - he was out of form and not liked by their fans. Shelvey is still young, has plenty top flight experience and will improve us. Will do for me.

Anita/Tiote because Colback is nailed on to play.

Colback starts with him.  They'd be our best partnership.

Might be the end of Tiote who has been linked to China, especially if Saivet comes in too.

Anita, I reckon.

I'm still puzzled that Swansea would sell him to a fellow relegation struggler.

I'm the first to complain about his shitness, but smashing Colback would leave us relying on two worse options.

Two CMs who are incapable of positioning themselves leaving grand canyon type holes behind them so our defence is even worse.

Great....
