Absolute Stupidty from Shelvey! Jonjo Shelvey's stupidty, in standing on the ankle of Dele Ali, as he lay on the ground following a foul in which Shelvey wasn't even involved in, resulting in his dismissal almost certainly cost Newcastle the game this afternoon. Up until that point Newcastle had almost held their own and in the final ten minutes of the game were even the better side despite being down to ten men. You can never say for certain of course, but hang your head in shame Mr Shelvey, you cost us dearly today - and you were our captain too!

More to follow when I've calmed down a bit!!!.
