Liverpool youngster Jonjo Shelvey has reacted to the criticisms of the fans after the club’s shock 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Bromwich Albion on Monday night, labeling the fans as key board warriors.

Shelvey had a poor game that day and so did Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson. The 20-year-old made his first start since the Boxing Day and was deployed behind Luis Suarez in absence of striker Daniel Sturridge.

However, he didn’t live up to the expectations and endured yet another frustrating night. He was severely criticized by Liverpool fans on Twitter and the youngster reacted strongly, said “Love people giving me stick… when half of the people on here haven’t got a clue what they’re on about.”

His reaction was a sharp contract to Daniel Agger’s who admitted that he was below par that day, tweeted “My performance in the last 10 minutes was NOT good enough. It’s as simple as that!!!!!”

What is wrong with Shelvey? He has a big attitude problem. He gets angry too easily (engaged with argument with Sir Alex Ferguson almost stupidly) and doesn’t have that mental make-up of a professional player. He has got big attitude problem and needs to learn other things before concentrating on football.

He must learn how a pro handles strident criticisms by taking a leaf out of Agger’s book. The Danish international admitted that he wasn’t up to mark and he has the guts to apologize to the fans. That’s why he is so loved and respect by everyone. Shelvey is not doing any favour by throwing his anger at the fans.
