Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performance of Georginio Wijnaldum against Swansea City at home on Saturday afternoon.
Wijnaldum started the Premier League game for Newcastle against Swansea at St. James’ Park and played for 73 minutes.
During his time on the pitch, the Netherlands international midfielder failed to take a single shot, had a pass accuracy of 85%, created two chances, put in one cross, and made one block.
The 25-year-old former Feyenoord and PSV star is one of the best players in the current Newcastle squad, but his performances in recent weeks have not been good.
In 33 Premier League appearances so far this season, Wijnaldum has scored nine goals, created 45 chances, has a pass accuracy of 85% and a shot accuracy of 69%, and has won 21 headers, 48 dribbles and 26 tackles.

Wijnaldum. Never seen a player fall so far in 3 months. Incredible against WHUFC in January, completely disinterested today. #nufc— Alun Carter (@aluncarter) April 16, 2016
I know that we won 3-0 but Wijnaldum should be dropped for the game against Man City. Same goes for Cisse. Bring in Mitro and Perez #NUFC— Adam Little (@AdamLittle_NUFC) April 16, 2016
Cracking result, so much more solid without Wijnaldum in the middle of the pitch. #NUFC— Steve Kell (@SteveKell91) April 16, 2016
Wijnaldum has been playing poorly for ages. Need to step up & show the form of 2015. Sissoko ran his heart out, kudos. Still a chance #NUFC— Haris Mahmood (@TheREALHaris) April 16, 2016
Townsend had a blinder today. His defending was disciplined when supporting Anita. Wijnaldum shocking again. #nufc— James Harrison (@mrbeast06) April 16, 2016
why hasn't de Jong got a chance ahead of Wijnaldum #NUFC— Kevin J. Hanratty (@kevinjhanratty) April 16, 2016
