Do We All Owe Jonjo Shelvey An Apology?

When Jonjo Shelvey was sent off for retaliation, against Nottingham Forest, the internet seemed to go into meltdown.

Many felt that Shelvey had made one too many mistakes and that he was becoming more trouble than he is worth.

Yesterday, however, Shelvey had his red card rescinded, while team mate Paul Dummett was also extended the same courtesy.

It is not often that the Football Association go against one of their referee’s and for them to do so in two incidents from the same game, goes to show just how bad referee Stephen Martin was.

With all of this in mind, do some supporters owe Shelvey an apology?



The short answer, is yes. Shelvey did very little, if anything, wrong against Forest and before he was wrongly sent off, he was by far the best player on the pitch. He was displaying his wonderful range of passing, which is possibly beyond that of any other Championship midfielder and was generally running the game.

It is not Shelvey’s fault if a referee makes an incorrect decision.

One thought on “Do We All Owe Jonjo Shelvey An Apology?

  1. I sent an Email to the FA to say how the referees are a joke in this league. It’s not the first really bad decisions made this season.something needs to be done. We would have won against Forrest easily.The game should be replaced with eleven against eleven and as for that cheating player Lansbury .he should be suspended. We were robbed of three points as the goal he dissalowed was ok and we should have had a penalty. Can’t wait for them to come to St James the end of this month
