Jonjo Shelvey


Leo No.8

Recommended Posts

This lad is a proper talent - can see the Gerrard comparisons, fairly tall and lanky with what you'd might consider a slightly awkward gait but technically special and looks to have superb passing and vision. Its not just last night, every time he's played so far whether its in Carra's testimonial, as a sub in the disasterous game against Northampton or pre season freindlies he's stood out a mile. Physically he's ready, it seems mentally he's ready as he's a confident lad.

 

Hope to see him involved significantly more now; him, Pacheco and Kelly could be not only the future of our team, but the fairly imminent future. NESV placed a lot of emphasis on youth development at the Red Sox and I hope they drive this at Liverpool from the top, because we have an incredibly talented group of youngsters at the moment who could save us tens of millions in the transfer market going forward.

i agree Leo, could probably do with a few games with proper players around him. wouldnt mind seeing what him and Meireles look like together in centre mid

he looks like a real cracking player and just did not at all look out of place on that pitch against that oppo. He goes ahead of lucas and that c*nt poulsen imo and should be played as much as possible.

 

Its funny you mention gerrard Leo i said exactly the same last night, just the way he passes the ball and runs with it there are striking similarities.

I'm not convinced Kelly will really make it, he's got the raw materials but I thought he was sloppy at times last night and I do think he falls out of position too easily. I'll hang fire on SHelvey for now, he's obviously talented and a lovely passer of the ball. however, I do wonder if he'll be one of those players who falls between doing each of the central midfield roles effectively. At the moment his running isn't dynamic enough to get tackles in at the highest level, and he's probably not quite got the pace to play off a striker. LIek what I see, but no huge proclamations that we can build a side around him. That said a Shelvey, Wilshere, Rodwell central midfield for England in 4/5 years time could be incredibly effective.

I disagree with you about Kelly. RFH would of ruined a young Maradona, Matthaus or Diao

Kelly has been our best full back this year. Dubious honour perhaps but I think its hard to argue the fact.

 

He's looked more solid and composed than the other senior full backs by a distance.

Still better than Hairpiece and Carra in that position though.

Agree with those comments. I just don't think many covered themselves in glory.

He did OK, looked to be nervous early on. Understandable with the season we are having I guess.
