"I fear this could come back to haunt us, still only 21 years old, like others have said - I completely agree, a seasons loan would have been a much better option to see how he handles playing week in week out for someone like Cardiff, Hull or Palace. Still think he has a lot to offer and could have been a good player for us in the future. We'll see!"

"Perhaps had too much expectation on his shoulders expecting to be another Gerrard. I'm not really disappointed to see him go though TBH. He had some potential but sometimes lacked pace and was brash on the pitch. I hope he manages to improve at Swansea and do wish him good luck for the future. I really hope we put a back buy clause or sell on clause in the transfer."

"I would have prefered us to offload Joe Allen rather than Jonjo, He's a much better more stronger player than Allen will ever be. I reckon Allen must be worth 3mil. Allen can't tackle, can't pass, is not creative, that's why he gets rid of the ball so quickly and has no end product whatsoever."

"Brendan told Jonjo during the summer break last year that he had big plans for him ie built up his hopes and now dashes them. Good diplomacy that, compliment them and then dump them. Our lack of ambition in the transfer window will yet again be mirrored during the next campaign = Mediocrity as usual."

"First tragic loss in the transfer window. I know he hadn't proved himself yet, but at his age he still showed the potentional of being one of the best future mids in the prem. In a few years time I have a feeling were all going to really dread having to face him as an opposition player!"
NigelM
3rd Jul 2013 17:18

"This wa an absolutely stupid move selling him for only 5mil and yet paid 20, yes 20mil for Allen. Allen is worth nowhere near 20mil, only worth about 3mil and I'm being really serious. I'd say Jonjo was worth about 7-8mil at present. Why we sell so cheap just baffles me, what's next, Suarez for 10mil to Madrid? Suarez is worth 50mil all day long."

"Crystal place have just bought a fairly unknown 22 year old British player for £4.5m, we've just sold an England capped, Premier league and Europa Leauge scorer for £5m. I really do hate to be negative but it just doesn't sit well does it?"
3rd Jul 2013 19:44
"Why do we always buy expensive and sell cheap? If we were buying Jonjo from Swansea or a Wigan they'd get 10 mil from us. They must see us coming"

"Hope you prosper at Swansea, not that you weren't given the chance & encouragement at LFC, it just never worked out. Stunned to hear the complaints of this sale; had BR been trying to buy Shelvey form a club, fans would have been having a go at him for buying a sub-standard player. Some even saying he was the next Gerrard - WHAT! He was an ok player who didn't blossom here, it happens."

Brendan already told us why we had to sell yet some of you just dont get it..We aint no Man City!"

"Jonjo at his worst is worth at least 2 Allen and he is still 21 years old. I cannot understand why LFC didn't loan Jonjo instead of selling him as 6m is not a financial bargain, also Swansea's play system is the same of BR's one and he is young thus he fits FSG transfer policy! in all aspects it's a big mistake.
