Flocking to Twitter, many West Bromwich Albion fans slammed the performance of midfielder Jake Livermore following his display as their side dropped points against Barnsley on Friday evening.
Valerien Ismael’s side, looking to keep chase in the right for Premier League promotion, couldn’t find the net at Oakwell with the Baggies succumbing to a 0-0 draw.
Which forward should West Brom sign?
Once again failing to win at Barnsley, with no victory there in 74 years, they had plenty of chances to open the scoring but couldn’t find a breakthrough as West Brom now face the prospect of falling further behind Championship frontrunners Fulham and Bournemouth.
After a disappointing evening, one man who attracted plenty of criticism alongside others was Livermore.
West Brom fans slam Livermore…
The 32-year-old, handed a start by Ismael. was one of three Baggies players cautioned on the night and it’s safe to say he didn’t enjoy his finest performance.
Coming in as West Brom’s joint-lowest rated player on SofaScore with a 6.4/10, Livermore was hooked 20 minutes from full-time after failing to stamp his authority in midfield.
Indeed, the Englishman apparently won none of his duels up against Barnsley, either in the air on the floor, whilst also taking fewer touches than goalkeeper Sam Johnstone (SofaScore), showing his overall lack of influence.
Taking this into account, it’s little wonder Baggies supporters weren’t impressed – find all of their verdicts down below:
“Livermore’s ‘mobility’ is shocking”
“What did TGH do to get dropped? Livermore dreadful yet again!”
“Hugill, Livermore and Furlong should never play for this club again. Woeful. Absolutely woeful.”
“Get Hugill, Furlong, Livermore and Robinson out of this club”
“Why are Furlong and Livermore auto-picks? Absolutely dire the pair of them.”
“Mowatt is ok, works better with Molumby alongside him, Livermore needs to go now, way past his best n stealing a living now. Furlong is looking out of sorts atm, probably worried about TGH”
“Furlong Livermore and Hugill has to be dropped for the next game. Get Ingram, TGH and Cleary in imo”
