Jonjo at least tries to pass the ball forward and create something, Jeff Hendrick next to him absolutely does nothing week in week out.

Shelvey is meant to be creative and he does a pathetic job of it, Hendrick isn't the same kind of player, Hendrick isn't in a team to create anything.

Shelvey is the one that gifted Man United the game (with Bruce), not Hendrick as well.

If Shelvey had anything better than a 50cc engine he'd be pretty good.

He's terrible, man. If we were a proper football club he'd have been peddled years ago.

The most annoying part of watching this player is hearing the commentator every week talk about what he "has in his locker" the "ability he has" when he plays his 50th long pass directly to the keeper, has an unnecessarily difficult pass blocked, or plays a long diagonal that does not progress the team. You would think he was some version of Pirlo, and it was NUFC that was holding him back. Jonjo has attributes; his goal record from midfield is good and he is fairly progressive with the ball, but the negatives outweigh the positives, imo. You will never build a serious team with him as one the two midfielders. Defensively, he is lazy and has the dynamism of Anita and Colback. Going forward, he is slow on and off the ball. Shelvey will never be anything more than an decent player for a poor team or a bench player for a decent one. He'd have no place in a serious side.

cannit cross a ball or take a set piece for s***.

His inability to run cost us the goal for 2-1.

A midfielder in a two needs to be able to run back as much as he does going forward. Watching him run is like watching someone try and move in slow motion. It makes no sense that he hasn’t been replaced. I guess he’s ones of Bruce’s good characters so an automatic starter

It's a combination of not being a great runner combined with a complete lack of self awareness of how hopeless he is at it.

The number of times he will try and close in instances he is better off staying in position because he's never getting there is astonishing.

Someone like Mark Noble is just as poor an athlete, but he never manages to look this useless I don't think.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Pretty much. Watching that slide tackle in the first half where he missed it by 5 yards despite starting it early sums him up.

He'd be a great player if the opposition would agree to play the game at walking pace as well.

Don't think he was particularly worse than anyone else, but thats not my point either. A midfield three of Shelvey, Hendrik and Schar is just stupid, and we were much worse after Hayden went off.

You can't carry a player who has zero clue/desire to get the back unless it's messi. Stephen Hawkin could have ran through our midfield today
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

He has neither pace nor a change of pace. With the game getting faster and standards in the Premiership improving every year, he looks less and less effective.

Really? Schar looks uncomfortable in midfield. But I noticed him doing more good work (a lot of lazy stuff, as well) than Hayden and we were equally as s**** and clueless before the change.

He’s just not good enough to justify playing him for the one worldie pass he makes every 3 games.

Sadly Bruce builds his entire team around him.

If we were any good, averaged more than about 30% possession or at least coached properly. Then I think Shelvey would have a place in the team for a lot of games. As it is, he is good for about 5 a season. Usually the games where the opposition don’t bother pressing him and he can operate at his own leisurely pace.

Just utterly pointless for a struggling team like us and has been for a while now.

He will be removed from the team when a new manager comes in, hopefully that’s sooner rather than later
