West Bromwich Albion fans have been lashing out at Charlie Austin after his performance in the 2-2 draw against Barnsley in the Championship yesterday.
Can West Brom win the Championship?
The Baggies came back from two goals down to rescue a point and their unbeaten home record thanks to an own goal and Matheus Pereira (via BBC).
However, it seems the home support were not best pleased with summer signing Austin, who has scored just two goals, including just one league goal, for the Midlands side in 10 appearances (via Transfermarkt).
Prior to his first league goal in the 4-2 win over Cardiff City, manager Slaven Bilic urged the Englishman to stay patient with regards to getting goals this season (via Express and Star).
However, it seems the fans aren’t willing to remain patient with the £4m summer signing from Southampton as they took to Twitter to blast the 30-year-old.
Here is a selection of tweets from the West Brom fans:
Send Austin back with a receipt thanks.

I’ll take a point but first half was an absolute joke need a striker desperately imo Austin doesn’t cut it I don’t care what anyone says he’s not going to improve

I really want to take to Austin top bloke. But he has to start scoring sooner rather than later….
