Newcastle's shirt sponsors FUN88 have joined the Magpies supporters in taking to Twitter to express their disbelief as Jonjo Shelvey continues to be overlooked by England manager Gareth Southgate ahead of their friendlies with Germany and Brazil.
Southgate has endured a turbulent time putting a squad together for the two friendlies during this international break, with Harry Winks, Jordan Henderson and Fabian Delph all withdrawing since the initial squad was announced.
With Shelvey impressing during the early weeks of the season, many would have expected the Magpies man to come into the side.
However, Southgate clearly has other ideas with Jake Livermore and Jack Cork being added to the squad. While Cork has impressed for the Clarets this term, Livermore has been out of form for much of the campaign for a West Brom side that has not won since August.
Shelvey has arguably done enough to be considered for a spot in the team. His passing ability in particular, surely makes him the kind of player who could have made an impact against some of the better sides in the world.
And unsurprisingly, the omission has left a number of Newcastle fans, and the club's main shirt sponsor extremely perplexed on social media.
Here is the best of the reaction...
Not looking like shelvey is gonna catch a break under Southgate then . Sideways midfielders only #England— dave benn (@davebenn16) 7 November 2017
Shelvey and Wilshere are better than pretty much all of the selected midfielders for England #ENG— Dan Kelly (@dankelly13) 7 November 2017
Jonjo Shelvey could win the ballon d'or and still wouldn't get in the England squad, absolute farce! #nufc— Shaun Durning (@SDMorpeth) 7 November 2017
Got a feeling Gareth Southgate would pick an elderly Ray Wilkins before Jonjo Shelvey— Tom Howarth (@Sirbobbyliveson) 7 November 2017
As if Southgate genuinely rates Cork and Livermore better than Shelvey.— Adam Smith (@adam_smith1990) 7 November 2017
