He is in the 'One to Watch' feature in the latest edition of Four Four Two. The feature doesn't tell us very much that we didn't know already. He's compared to Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and Zinedine Zidane. Phil Parkinson praises his work ethic and the way he has blended into the first team and Richard Murray assures us that 'Shelvey has committed his future to Charlton. Jonjo likes the way Phil Parkinson has involved him in the team.'
Fortunately, most managers don't rely on reading Four Four Two to identify likely prospects. Shelvey's potential is already well known. Hopefully, we can retain him until Christmas.
