A number of Sheffield United supporters have laid into Rhian Brewster following the Blades’ disappointing 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
The Blades were looking to get their Championship season up and running after a poor start to the campaign, but it hasn’t panned out that way.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s side faced a Yorkshire derby at home to Huddersfield Town on Saturday, but it was the visitors who claimed the bragging rights at Bramall Lane. United seemed to have earned a point with a last-gasp Billy Sharp equaliser, only for the Terriers to go straight up the other end and nick a dramatic win.
Brewster led the line for the Blades as he looks to kick on in his career, but he was disappointing, failing to have a big enough impact on proceedings. The 21-year-old had just 14 touches in the game and completed a mere four passes. He also won just one of his seven duels and failed to complete a single dribble (Sofascore).
Sheffield United fans unhappy with Brewster
These Blades fans took to Twitter to vent their disgruntlement about Brewster’s performance yesterday, with one supporter making an unflattering comparison with the club’s former enigma Diego De Girolamo.
“From a contextual perspective, Rhian Brewster is the worst signing United have ever made“
“We’d be lucky to scrape £6million for Brewster. Liverpool had our pants down“
“Brewster looking like the next De Girolamo to me. Bring in Jebbison”
“If Brewster didn’t cost £24m, he’d be joining Rotherham on loan this window. Let’s be honest, what’s his motivation now, even just at 20? I think it’s a case of too much too soon! He’s got a UCL winners medal! Must be on huge wages, LFC on CV will always mean £££/transfers“
“Bash was good but poor for the winning goal. Fleck was much better than of late. Brewster didn’t do enough for my liking.”
“From what I’ve seen Jebbison is better than both Brewster and Burke, he should be given a chance“
