First Harry arter, then Steven nzonzi, then some scot we never heard of and now John Jo shelvey. Can shelvey really offer what we need? Looks like the board could have learnt nothing. Firstly he is hardly the next level, infact I'd say more likely the old level. A little bit better than snodgrass but that's all. He doesn't always nail down a place at Newcastle and not renown for a good engine or putting his foot in a tackle. At best I'd say he would be cover for lanzini. So why buy now! Look Sullivan buy what we NEED most urgently not what's cheap.we need an arter or even better a joe Allen. Someone who is resilient, these players generally are easier and cheaper to find. (Although not as cheap as 12 mill quoted for shelvey) if we can't find or afford at least one of those type of midfielders we deserve to go down. So is Sullivan about to make another January mistake?
