Mile Jedinak's recent displays have been cause for concern for Aston Villa supporters this season.
Unfortunately for the former Crystal Palace man, viewers of the Australian national team have now exacerbated the discussion, as they took to Twitter to add their comment and opinion on their captain.
In winning his 66th international cap, Aston Villa's summer signing Mile Jedinak was deployed in a customary deep-lying midfield role for Australia in their 2018 World Cup qualifier against Saudi Arabia.
Jedinak, whose domestic season with Aston Villa has been a hugely disappointing one so far, may have been hoping that the game at King Abdullah Sport City, Jeddah, would act as a perfect opportunity to find some much needed individual form and put his Championship toils behind him.
Stats from the match show that Mile Jedinak completed the game, took a total of 60 touches, had no shots on target, created a solitary chance for his teammates and was booked in the 23rd minute.
However, it appears that Jedinak certainly failed to impress his compatriots throughout the 2-2 draw - as Twitter reactions suggest that the Australian struggled to justify his place in the line-up.
Specifically, Australian fans seemed at a loss when it came to Jedinak's distribution, pace, energy and possession.
There were also many suggestions on potential replacements, including a belief that Mark Milligan, who plays his club football in the United Arab Emirates, and Burton Albion's Jackson Irvine would be improvements over the 32-year-old Jedinak.
Here's just a taste of the reaction on Twitter.
Jedinak, that is atrocious.— Ben Smith (@BenSmith94) October 6, 2016
No way jedinak should be starting don't care whether he's captain or not squad should be picked on current form— SR (@reynolfc) October 6, 2016
Seriously is Jedinak still good at something? Having a shocker yet again... #KSAvAUS— The Aussie (@BackoTheDoc) October 6, 2016
Jedinak. Too slow, too out of form. Put Milligan back in his best role #KSAvAUS— Simon P (@spappa_g) October 6, 2016
I don't think I saw Jedinak play a single pass along the floor in that half. Other than that, good response to the opening 20 mins #KSAvAUS— Ben Smith (@BenSmith94) October 6, 2016
Jedinak having one of his awful games tbh - would love to see the more energetic (and in better form) Irvine on for him #KSAvAUS— Peter (@nutwals) October 6, 2016
I know Jedinak is there for other reasons, but his passing ability is embarrassing when compared to Mooy and Rogic #KSAvAUS— jonno zalunardo. (@jonno__z) October 6, 2016
Aston Villa's Mile Jedinak is struggling for form for both club and country
