Newcastle United fans may have not had many reasons to take the positives in last Saturday’s tie with Brighton and Hove Albion but there were some small reasons for cheer.

Dominating possession of the ball as we did and creating a total of 27 chances on the day does give hope for the future if we can develop more of a clinical edge about ourselves.

A clear positive from the match was the individual efforts of Jonjoe Shelvey given his performance on the day and taking to social media in the aftermath of the match, plenty of Newcastle fans were desperate to take the positives he brought as we slipped to the bottom of the Premier League table and remained winless in the top-flight in the season of 2018/19.

With the positives, and our current form, that definitely gives rise to a potentially negative though as the one comment ably points out – whilst manager Rafa Benitez will be looking to strengthen in the January window, there are genuine fears somebody will try to tempt our hand when it comes to the 26-year-old.
