Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Jonjo Shelvey against Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

Shelvey featured for Newcastle in the Championship game against Huddersfield at St. James’ Park.

The former Swansea City midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes.

The 24-year-old did not have a great game, as Newcastle slumped to a 2-1 home defeat to Huddersfield.

Shelvey joined Newcastle from Premier League club Swansea in the January transfer window.

As reported by BBC Sport at the time, the Magpies had to pay the Swans a transfer fee of £12 million in order to secure the services of the England international.

The midfielder has played well on occasions, but he has yet to show that he is worth £12m.

Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Shelvey against Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.
