A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to slam the display of Jonjo Shelvey during the Toon’s 1-0 defeat to Brentford in the Carabao Cup.
The Toon conceded in the second half when Josh Dasilva swept home and could not get back into the game as they crashed out of the competition.
What did these Newcastle fans think of this display from Jonjo Shelvey?
Sean Longstaff. Jonjo Shelvey. Get in the bin.

Jonjo Shelvey is a player who thinks he’s much better than he is. Strolls around as if he’s Xavi or Iniesta, whilst contributing absolutely nothing. £80k a week to be a passenger. Watch a few clips of Cabaye in the centre and it highlights how little Shelvey offers. #nufc

Was Shelvey that bad?
Yes, he was dreadful
No, others were worse
Can’t believe Jacob Murphy, Sean Longstaff & Jonjo Shelvey are premier league players ??

I never wanna see Sean Longstaff, Andy Carroll or Jonjo Shelvey anywhere near a Newcastle shirt again.

Newcastle had chances but were very poor and now face a run of games that will see them play Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester City; if they play this poorly again, then they could be in for some more pain in the weeks ahead.
Newcastle had a good opportunity to reach the semi-final of a cup competition.
Still, they never got going, and it seems as if many fans were particularly angry at the display of Shelvey.
