LEIGHTON JAMES COLUMN: Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey...

I WONDER whether Garry Monk would have let Jonjo Shelvey take that penalty six months ago.Shelvey dispatched from the spot brilliantly to hand Swansea a share of the spoils against Everton last Saturday.To covert so emphatically took a great deal of composure, and that was something Shelvey seemed to lack earlier in the campaign.He was constantly picking up silly bookings and they sometimes led to red cards.But Shelvey seems to have tightened up on his discipline in recent weeks.Both Monk and...
