Jose Enrique was always going to be criticised against Exeter City. After spending so long in the wilderness at Liverpool, the odds of a miraculously good performance weren't looking good.
And, from the moment the Reds defender stepped out, things went as one would predict. Enrique was painfully slow to react to Exeter's first goal and the rest of his match followed suit.
Twitter went wild at the first opportunity, suggesting the Spaniard should return to playing table tennis, Mario Kart and, most of all, posting on Instagram.
At Newcastle, Enrique was one of the best full-backs in the Premier League. Now, supporters on Tyneside feel vindicated in suggesting 'the grass isn't always greener.'
Both the Spaniard and Liverpool fans would have expected big things of a man in such form when he arrived at Anfield. And, at times, Enrique showed what he was about - even linking up with Luis Suarez to great effect.
But the former Newcastle left-back is now genuinely struggling for basic fitness - and it prompted plenty of reaction from fans at St James' Park on Twitter. Here's how they responded to Enrique's performance v Exeter on Friday night:
Remember when Enrique used to be one of the best Fullbacks in the league? Same could be said for Denuchy to grass isn't always greener #nufc— Chris. (@nufc_chris) January 8, 2016
