Spurs fans urge Pochettino to sign NUFC star this summer after ‘brilliant’ display last night

After an outstanding performance during last night’s 1-0 defeat at Wembley, several Spurs fans have urged Mauricio Pochettino to make a move to sign NUFC midfielder Jonjo Shelvey this summer.

The midfielder ran the show last night and was highly impressive in possession, spraying several inch perfect passes out wide and in behind.

Here’s some interesting tweets from Spurs fans following last night’s game:

@JournoPeter “Delighted we somehow got over the line! Anyone else think Shelvey could be a great buy for Spurs with Poch working his magic on him?”

@RuckerHaringey –  “Could Shelvey be the Dembele replacement few want but everyone needs?”

@MARTIN_THFC“I saw a player on the field tonight we need to buy who would be perfect for us JON JO SHELVEY, he’s what our team needs watched him closely, two great feet, can tackle, his passing is sublime, always passes forward, and a lot of it is first time, it’s only his bad attitude”

@addicted_Spurs“Was brilliant  – can’t lie in that first half I was looking at the balls he was spraying around the pitch and I thought wow, imagine Kane and Dele on the end of them and not Perez and Gayle!”

@Paul731“Shelvey? Could do a good job for us in that deep lying M/F role.”

@ShamimRahman – “That was a stressful last 20min. Have to say that Jonjoy Shelvey is a quality player. He wouldn’t look out of place in the Champions’ League and would be an excellent replacement for Dembele.”

@SpursYorkshire“Tell ya What id take that John Joe Shelvey at spurs all day long what a passer of the ball.”

The same fans were probably slating him after he was sent off on the opening day of the season, but this just shows how much he impressed last night!

I can’t see it happening, but it’s another indicator as to why he MUST be included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad this summer. He offers a range of passing which very few teams can cope with on his day.

  1. Hope too God he is still a Toon player next season but got a nasty feeling Some of the top sides will make a big bid for him . Would be beter for us if he did not go too Russia in the summer because if he does and plays like he can , he’s gone .


  2. I still believe Rafa is going to have to sell the family china to fund his transfers, and Shelvey might just be one that is sacrificed if big money comes in for him..

    We all know the story with Ashley every transfer window, so don’t hold your breath.
