      Bags of potential, but the head to fulfil it?

      Would have preferred had we loaned him rather then sell but obviously the boss had no plans for him

      All the best Jonjo and thanks for your efforts

      Hope we've got a buy-back clause in there.

      Just seen his tweets on the main site: 

      http://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/latest-news/138510-shelvey-thanks-liverpool-fans

      That is the mark of a class act.  Wish him all the best in the future and I really hope he turns good on his talent.  Just hope he never makes his way to the Mancs or the Bitters....

      He's 21. Still a kid. A bit naive. Some mature quickly and some takes time. Shelvey is from the later I guess. The guy's quality. He takes risk on the pitch, make things happen, can score unlike Henderson In the process, he may lose the ball sometimes but got the vision and awareness. Was awesome at the start of the season. Loves the club, the city. If Allen perform badly this season as well, I bet he won't be sold.

      We got rid of him way, way too early.

      Deserved another year just for having a go at Ferguson.

      Maybe it's a mentality thing that has seen him moved on but I think he'll do well at Swansea.
      I thought he'd do well here given time, but we'll never know now.

      I hope we have somebody pretty special coming in to midfield,
      otherwise we could regret letting Shelvey go.

      6M. Guess that means we'll get f**k all for Spearing.

      Fee seems low considering his age and nationality, usually both demand a premium.

      Will always be remembered for that moment with Alco and his tweets seemed to be from the heart, fair play Jonjo and good luck.

      Always had a soft spot for Jonjo and sad to see him go.

      Can see him doing really well at Swansea.

      Hendo actually scored a goal more than Jonjo last season. Agree we got rid too early a loan deal would have been a better option for a player with his potential. Perhaps he looked for a transfer so he could play more regular football.

      Good luck to him, hopefully there is a buy back clause! This move will do him good, hopefully he will learn to control himself more on the pitch!

      Always felt he had too much self belief. Great potential but I wasn't always convinced. Brendan gave him a real shot to prove himself worthy last summer and unfortunately he couldn't take it. Wish him all the best, genuinely do. However, not all that sad to see him leave.

      Good luck Shelvey lad, hope you do well with the Swans.

      I think that Shelvey has the potential to be a top player,  I think we should have waited and sent him out on loan.  The end product I believe will be between a Danny Murphy and a Frank Lampard.

      I personally think he's been shipped on permanently a little early. Would have liked to see him loaned out and get a regular full season under his belt at a club like Palace then possibly re-evaluate as to if he had a future with us. That said maybe Jonjo felt it wasn't the route he wanted to go down with what's happened to loaned out players over the last few seasons. Maybe he thought it would be just prolonging the inevitable.

      Good luck lad, has the potential to be one that got away. I hope for our sakes it isn't.

      Nice to see his tweets post transfer. Respectful. YNWA

      How much are good young English midfielders worth these days? I think Swansea who normally buy smart have picked up a bargain. He isn't the finished article but is very young and has talent + swagger to his game.

      Good luck Jonjo. Was going to struggle for game time with us next season. Especially with our lack of European football. All money into out kitty for players Brendan does feel will add to the playing XI, so good news all round.

      Think he deserved another year and I hope we've installed a buy back clause or at the very least a sell on clause.

      Personally I think Shelvey will get better at Swansea, and every time he scores a goal, there will be someone saying we let him go too soon. Still, I don't think he'll ever develop into a player that would actually command a starting place at LFC - or any team aiming for the top. Since we couldn't really provide him enough game time for his development, I think it's only fair that we let him go, although a buy-back clause certainly wouldn't hurt. Not too bothered he's gone to be frank but I liked the lad so it's always a bit sad to see a player like that leave.

      Anyone see how affected Jonjo was by his mistakes, he looked like a man full of sorrow in his post match interview. Looked like he was gonna start crying at the start of the second half too.

      He was a bit of a n*b head with the celebrating etc....  As much as I loved Jonjo you just didn't know what Jonjo was going to come out and play.

      He was rightly moved on and he'll be boss in a set up like Swansea.
