Russell Martin’s performance for Norwich City against Bournemouth has been slammed by the club’s supporters on Twitter.
Martin started at right-back for Norwich in their 3-0 defeat to the Cherries and he endured a torrid afternoon.
Bournemouth’s Charlie Daniels caused him no end of problems throughout the contest, and he did not look comfortable at any stage.
Daniels scored Bournemouth’s second goal, and he set up Benik Afobe’s late third as Martin struggled to cope with his pace.
Martin has been a loyal servant for Norwich and he currently wears the captain’s armband, but Canaries supporters are calling for him to be dropped.
With a move for Wolfsburg defender Timm Klose nearing its completion, according to the Guardian, and Ivo Pinto already snapped up, Norwich fans are calling for Alex Neil to drop the Scotland international.
Many of their supporters have accused Martin of simply not being good enough to play in the Premier League.
Here is the best reaction from Norwich fans to Martin’s performance on social media site Twitter.
Always have maintained that R Martin is a capable player; however, he is always at risk of being specifically targeted (as yesterday) #ncfc— Cameron Mason (@CjMason47) January 17, 2016
And how Daniels has managed to through Russell Martin like he isn't there is beyond me. Fit or not, Pinto needs to start next week #NCFC— Tom Chambers (@TomChambers1) January 17, 2016
I'm sorry to say it, but I hope the arrival of Ivo Pinto spells the end of Russell Martin. Pugh and Daniels had a field day yesterday #ncfc— Richard Balls (@RichardBalls) January 17, 2016
Howson should be captain, Leeds saw it at an early age, miles more inspiring than Martin. #ncfc— Harry Dawson (@harrydawson90) January 17, 2016
Martin: dreadful. Brady: a winger. Bennett: sloppy. Bassong: Bassong! All yesterday's back 4 can have no complaint if they're dropped. #ncfc— Jimbob Hedgehog (@JamesFinbow) January 17, 2016
Yes it's Russell Martin time! Two clips, two unchallenged crosses, 1 goal. Third clip completely mugged off. He will take #Ncfc down— David coyle (@Coyleycoyley) January 17, 2016
Please please please drop Martin. AN needs to have the balls to do it. Also stop playing Brady at LB. Not good enough. #ncfc— Chris Tubby (@tubingtonsmithe) January 16, 2016
Jonny Howson for #ncfc captain anyone? Not to hop on the bandwagon, but Russell Martin at RB makes me pretty sad tbh.— Callum Connell (@c_connell2) January 16, 2016
