A number of Sheffield Wednesday supporters have criticised Liam Palmer’s performance in the Owls’ 1-0 defeat to Morecambe on Saturday.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
Darren Moore’s side had made a superb start to the season going into the weekend action, picking up ten points from four games and topping League One.
Wednesday also hadn’t even conceded a goal, with the early signs suggesting a promotion push is on the cards.
The Owls were the overriding favourites to win away to newly-promoted Morecambe on Saturday, but things didn’t pan out that way.
Dennis Adeniran’s own goal proved to be the difference between the two sides, with the visitors unable to break down their opponents, despite their dominance.
Palmer may have been an excellent servant for Wednesday, but he didn’t have a great day at the office in a central defensive role, managing no tackles, no blocks and just one interception.
Sheff Wed fans lambast Palmer display
These Owls fans laid into the Scot on Twitter, following a hugely disappointing defeat.
“Brilliant touch thanks again Palmer for your loyal service you truly are an awful footballer“
“Substitutions were shocking how the hell did Johnson stay on for 90mins, Brown and Adeniran should have stayed on. Palmer cost us the game, can’t control a ball“
“Poor. Lost plot after goal #swfc Palmer shocking“
“All because of Palmer who couldn’t trap a bag of cement. I wouldn’t have him anywhere near the team, accident waiting to happen that bloke“
“Not surprising with Liam Palmer at centre half!“
“Need new CB this week“
