Shelvey hits out on Liverpool fans on Twitter

The youngster made his first start in the league since Boxing Day defeat at the hands of Stoke City (his performance was miserable that day too) but endured a tough time against the Baggies as Rodgers took him off on the hour mark.

Shelvey received harsh criticisms for his lackluster performance and he reacted by posting a tweet aiming at those fans who abused him. He wrote:

“Love people giving me stick… When half of people on here haven’t got a clue what they’re on about. #welldone #keyboardwarriors.”

The 20-year-old, who has one England national cap under his belt vented his frustration last week and spoke about how he had been made scapegoat for Liverpool’s poor performance against Stoke and as a result of which didn’t make any appearance for the Reds following that match.

Shelvey should take a hard look at himself before making any such comments and this will only represent negative images of him before the fans and the manager. Or maybe he should take a leaf about of Daniel Agger’s book – the Dane showed great dignity by apologizing to the fans for his performances.

The Denmark captain also had a poor night and was hugely responsible for both the goals. However, unlike Shelvey he acknowledged the mistakes he made and thanked the fans for pointing out his error that let Gareth McAuley score West Brom’s opener. He tweeted:


Possibly that’s why Agger is so loved and respected by the Anfield faithful. Shelvey needs to calm his temper down and concentrate on matters relating to football only. Steven Gerrard, who is now his would be neighbor, could help him doing that.

  1. Jonjo isn’t liverpool standard by anyway shape or form. He is a championship player at best same as spearing. He wouldn’t play for any of the teams challenging for the title. So why do we play him.

  2. LFC players should learn to accept their mistakes and improve their performances on the field of play to shame their critics. We’ve supported this team for long and have suffered too much humiliation for Jonjo to respond that way. He must shape up or ship out. Same with manager. Keep winning teams and not change unnecessarily. Watch your team from ‘keeper to last man and bring in personnel to plug gaps at the back.

  3. Never the less twitter is used by more and more idiots who see it as a way to get close to players just to abuse them. A lot of LFC fans are horrified by these actions. But I have to admit I think any player with a twitter account is making a rod for his own back.

  4. yo shelvey… how many times did you find your self offsides? you need to seek the counsel of gerrard and carragher. if you think you are worthy of liverpool fc you need to show respect young man.. you aint the second coming of christ to this football club…

  5. What does he expect though?, he was poor hence why he was taken off. Even Rodgers said he was off the pace on the night, i still think he isnt cut out for the top level anyway, was another player hyped about far to quickly during his Charlton days, where he was playing at his level lets be honest.

  6. Liverpool fans and players alike should wake up and smell the coffee. Gerrard (great player) is too old and can’t hack the top half of the prem anymore. Great player but I wouldn’t want Bryan Robson in the present Albion squad. Liverpool have only caught up the Albion due to a 4 game losing streak on our part. We have won this fixture 5-0 on aggrigate this season, the fact that you all are so disgusted at losing to the Baggies and truly beleive that the present Liverpool squad should automatically beat us just goes to show how little you all actually do know about the game and your opponants. If your management and playing staff also share your footballing intuition then I suggest you point to that as the main reason you fail and will continue to fail. Show some respect and maybe the rest of the footballing world will start to show you some. Well done Albion on getting your tactics bang on and take note other teams, this is how you beat Liverpool at Anfield whilst missing 3 senior squad players to suspension, petulance and injury.
