"It's the best birthday present I could wish for - I failed my theory driving test this morning, so this wasn't a bad way to cheer me up!"
Looks like all of our birthday's have come at once. Two and and a half years could have been longer, but remember Scott Parker signed a 5-year one, and that meant diddly squat. JonJo signing this morning is a great boost to the club and credit must go to Damian Matthew and all the academy staff and Steve Gritt who have nurtured and encouraged the 17-year old.
Shelvey hasn't seen much first team action recently, perhaps by design, although he has been on the bench. From his own comments about featuring in a 4-4-1-1 formation I still expect that he will be very important to our survival hopes as we go into the final 2 months of the season."All in all, we haven't had too much good news at Charlton lately, and this is certainly great for the club.
