Patrick Bamford failed to impress Crystal Palace supporters with his performance in the Capital One Cup against Manchester City.
Bamford has had limited chances with the Eagles so far this season, but he was handed a start against City on Wednesday evening.
In the contest, the Chelsea loanee failed to get involved, with his side falling to a heavy 5-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.
Bamford had arguably Palace’s best chance of the match, when Wilfried Zaha set him up for a close-range shot, but he hesitated and the attempt was blocked.
It was the story of Bamford’s night, with nothing going his way in the contest.
It leaves his chances of starting at the weekend looking slim, despite Palace’s struggles for a striker this season.
The Eagles have failed to find a potent goalscorer throughout the campaign so far, but Palace fans are not convinced that Bamford is the answer.
Eagles supporters have slated the performance of the young striker on social media site Twitter, with many suggesting that it was pointless having him on the field. Here is the best reaction.
Long journey home and I'm just sat thinking to myself was there any point Bamford being on that pitch tonight? #cpfc— Danny Priestley (@priestley93) October 28, 2015
Disgraceful effort by almost all team- so poor. First choice CBs and last years midfield axis-poor. Bamford should never where shirt #cpfc— Mark Cole (@73Cole) October 28, 2015
Simple fact is that once you go beyond our first choice team, there isn't much depth. Bamford, Mutch and Marriapa don't look ready #cpfc— John Armstrong (@Johnster1708) October 28, 2015
Bamford and marriappa worst performances I've seen from anyone in a palace shirt... Gayle came on 75mins too late #cpfc— Danny Priestley (@priestley93) October 28, 2015
Jedinak, Ledley, Bamford, Bolasie.. So many passengers tonight— Johnny (@jwg_cpfc) October 28, 2015
I'm normally quite positive but Bamford was terrible, I really hope Wickham is the answer #cpfc— Harling (@HarlingJ) October 28, 2015
I'd prefer we play Hangeland upfront than Bamford or Campbell ever again! #cpfc STATEMENT!— FantasyFootyEagles (@FantasyEagles) October 28, 2015
Sell Campbell in January, send Bamford back to chelsea and get a quality striker in as soon as the window opens #cpfc— TOE (@TAKTIKT0E) October 28, 2015
