Many Crystal Palace fans have been left to slam the display of Andros Townsend in the first half of their game away at Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.
The former Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United man did not put in an inspiring performance in the eyes of several members of the Selhurst Park faithful, as he was particularly wasteful from set pieces.
Should Crystal Palace start Townsend?
He as also guilty of giving the ball away on too many occasions, and was lucky that the Blades were not able to capitalise on his overall sloppiness in general play.
Given the chance to impress from the start by Roy Hodgson, the 29-year-old surely needs to improve on his display in the second half of the match if he wants to continue to play under the former Liverpool and England international manager for the remaining few fixtures of the season.

These Eagles slammed his display on Twitter, with one CPFC supporter even going as far as to claim that the Englishman is ‘awful’:
“Townsend seems like a good bloke. But he’s an awful footballer.”
“Townsend’s free kicks are still awful I see”
“My god Andros Townsend is garbage. Can’t believe I used to defend him against @chrisbowerbank and @acrossthepond”
“Oh my god Townsend leave”
“Don’t worry nobody has been sent off we’re just playing Andros Townsend”
“Townsend shouldn’t get a new deal for next year”
