Newcastle's all-time top Premier League goalscorer is but how many goals did he score for the club?

During the first half of the game against Pep Guardiola’s side, lots of Toon supporters were not pleased with what they saw from Shelvey with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter. 

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say about Shelvey’s first-half display against Man City?

“Shelvey is finished at this level. Absolutely done. Needs to drop down a division. Or 2.”

“Beyond me how shelvey is in the line up every week”

“Shelvey is the most frustrating player to watch”

@Sevson

“Shelvey is a terrible terrible

“shelvey is not a serious baller”

Newcastle signed Shelvey during the 2016 January window for a fee of £14.4 million and has since gone on to make over 160 appearances with the Magpies (per Transfermarkt).

Should Newcastle sell Shelvey this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Looking at this bunch of tweets from this group of Newcastle fans, it’s clear to see that they were not overly impressed with what they saw from the midfield man in the first half. 

Moving forward, Shelvey will be undoubtedly be hoping that he can put in a better shift throughout the rest of the match than he managed to on the first half or else he could find himself on the receiving end of even more criticism.

Although, to be fair to him, he did manage to provide the assist for the Newcastle goal.
