West Bromwich Albion faced off against Crystal Palace today in a huge game for both clubs and Albion’s Kyle Bartley was on the receiving end of plenty of criticism from the club’s supporters.
Palace took the lead early on in the game after Darnell Furlong turned the ball into his own net from Wilfred Zaha’s cross
Bartley was been given the captain’s armband for this match, but he struggled defensively and it was his foul that gave away the free-kick from which Palace opened the scoring.
The 29-year-old began his career at Arsenal and after a few loans and a stop at Swansea, he signed for WBA in 2018. He played a role in the club’s promotion last season, but judging by social media, that counts for little when it comes to getting judged on his displays.
The fans took to social media platform Twitter to share their displeasure with their man’s display.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Bartley
Pretty even game so far imo, Phillips doing ok, grant looking alright, .
Furlong needs help, Bartley scares me.

Agree. Bartley an average Championship standard player.

Liability Bartley at it again. Giving away a stupid free kick, that leads to a goal. The useless idiot needs taking out the team, for good… #wba

What does Bartley bring to this team Steve? He’s terrible.

Pathetic challenge from Bartley in the first place

Bartley continuing to be nothing but a complete and utter liability with seemingly not a brain cell in sight. Can’t wait to move on from the likes of him, Phillips and Kanu.
