Voldemort escapes FA disciplinary action

 jonjo-shelvey-lord-voldemortJonjo Shelvey aka Voldermort will not face disciplinary action following his clash with West Ham’s Enner Valencia on Saturday.

The Newcastle £12million signing  who was making his debut during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at St James’ Park used his shoulder to barge the Ecuadorian in an off-the-ball incident missed by referee Neil Swarbrick.

An independent FA panel of three former referees has now reviewed footage of the clash in light of Swarbrick’s report.

They have to decide unanimously if a red card was warranted. However, no further action will be taken against the 23-year-old.

Shelvey said of the incident  “I felt contact on my shoulder and have obviously lent in with my shoulder. People are saying it’s a red card, but it’s part of football, you are going to have comings-together.”

‘I did apologise and he’s apologised to me, it’s one of those things that happens in football”

  1. Did he counter the expelliarmus spell Sean ?

  2. Could be worse. He could have a Beatles hair cut and round glasses and be called Harry Potter.

  3. Slytherin out of trouble, yet again … 😉

  4. Why would he apologise to you did you cut your elbow on his face,
    If that was done on the local terrace and the police saw it you would be arrested for ABH
    How do we teach our kids what’s wrong or right when thugs can say it’s part of the game,
    Instead of tossing the coin to start the game we bring in cage fighters or who does the best head butt,
    The blokes got a screw loose and everyone knows it he will be moved on within 18 months just like every club he has been with,
    The 3 ex refs must need to go to specsavers,

  5. Slytherin , nice one.
    Don’t get the part of the game bit! I’m sure he won’t mind a part of ginge,s elbow next we meet .lol it was a blatant elbow and its been OK,d by the 3 blind mice ? FA going a great job again telling the kids its OK to give you’re opponents eye or brain damage ?? Remember the young lad that bit his opponent after the sources incident!!!! You just couldn’t make this stuff up if you were a logical person ! Blatter , platini ,and the rest come to mind , BENT as a nine Bob note ? Even the wally compared it to NFL , ( taking the pi£s of course ) BENT !,,,
