Many Sheffield Wednesday fans were critical of Florian Kamberi’s performance in their 0-0 draw at Portsmouth in League One on Tuesday night.
The Owls perhaps would have settled for a point in the end as Massimo Luongo was given a straight red card for violent conduct in the 69th minute, meaning that they had to hold out for more than 20 minutes with 10 men on the field.
Should Sheffield Wednesday start Kamberi?
However, when a team goes down a player, they really need the help of the forwards to hold the ball up and bring others into play whenever they can attack.
Alas, Kamberi struggled while Wednesday had 11 men, let alone 10, as he lost out on all seven of his duels and also failed to record a single shot on goal or dribble. In addition, he was guilty of losing possession of the ball seven times in total during the game (SofaScore).

These Owls fans slammed his performance on Twitter, with one supporter even going as far as to claim that he is a ‘poor man’s Stevie May’, referring to the Scottish striker who only managed seven goals in his 42-match Wednesday career:
“Kamberi not offering much at all!”
“Kamberi, poor man’s Stevie May”
“Kamberi & Gregory just can’t play together. Running the same lines, banging into each other. It’s embarrassing.”
“Kamberi totally oblivious. Hook him.”
“Kamberi ain’t good enough”
“Just like to say, I don’t think I have ever seen anyone slip over on a football pitch as much as Kamberi. Reckon he might need bigger studs or something.”
