Many Crystal Palace fans have responded to a club tweet from the official club account as it wished a happy birthday to summer signing from James McCarthy.
There was a mixed response from fans, with some even suggesting that they can’t remember who he is after the 29-year-old has failed to be a regular at Selhurst Park since his move from Everton.
Since making the move, McCarthy has been limited to just one start from a possible 12 league games, averaging just a 6.19/10 rating from WhoScored.
The Republic of Ireland international has come off the bench eight times, but not for large enough portions to have any kind of significant impact. From his nine matches, he has played just 161 minutes, meaning that he is averaging less than 18 minutes on the pitch per appearances.
There was a variety of replies from the Palace fanbase, with some suggesting that he needs to play more, some just wishing him a happy birthday and even another fan asking for another new signing to get some game time in Victor Camarasa.
Here are some of the replies below…
