West Brom fans react on Twitter to Brown Ideye's performance v Villa

West Brom

The West Brom striker underwhelmed again at Aston Villa. Has his short burst of form come to an abrupt end?

The finger of blame was pointed in several directions after West Brom lost to Aston Villa for the second time in a week on Saturday afternoon.

The Baggies this time lost to their local rivals in the FA Cup quarter-finals and didn't even manage to score.

Boss Tony Pulis was criticised by supporters for his use of 'negative' tactics, while West Brom's defence and midfield was filled with underperformers. Joleon Lescott, too, produced a costly second-half miss.

But the costliest miss of the day against Aston Villa came from West Brom's club-record signing Brown Ideye.

The striker produced a poor performance at Villa earlier in the week and repeated the feat on Saturday, starting the game off by missing a golden chance to open the scoring for West Brom - something their early dominance warranted.

Ideye couldn't deliver then or thereafter, as the 26-year-old flattered to deceive at Villa Park.

Some supporters blamed the Nigerian, while others criticised Pulis for playing the forward if he wasn't fully fit - as well as his use of long-ball football. Opinion certainly seems mixed on the West Brom striker right now, whose previous run of impressive form looks to be at an end.

Here's a selection of what Baggies fans are saying about Ideye on Twitter after his performance against Aston Villa...
