Lots of Newcastle United fans have been blasting Jacob Murphy after he missed a big chance to give them a win away at Watford on Saturday afternoon.
The winger was put through one-on-one against the goalkeeper in injury time with no pressure on the ball, but decided to try and chip a shot over Ben Foster rather than hit it hard into one of the corners.
Does Murphy have a future at Newcastle?
It ended up a very tame effort which was easily saved, leaving many Newcastle fans angry over his poor finish.
Murphy did not have the best impact when he came on as a substitute, losing out on two of his duels and failing to make any dribbles, key passes, crosses or long balls (Sofascore).

These Newcastle supporters blasted Murphy on Twitter after his miss, with one Magpies fan even going as far as to claim that the 26-year-old is a ‘Championship player’:
“6-year contract though based on 5 half-decent games last season. Embarrassing.”
“Criminal, absolutely criminal”
“Absolutely messed it up”
“Needs fining for that”
