West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Chris Brunt against Birmingham City.
Brunt was in action for West Brom in their Championship match against Birmingham away from home at St Andrew’s on Friday evening.
The 33-year-old - who is a very versatile footballer and can operate as a winger, left-back or attacking midfielder - started the match and played for 78 minutes.
West Brom fans were not impressed with the performance of Brunt against Birmingham and have criticised his display on Twitter.
Below are some of the best comments:
So disappointed with that performance last night. Dawson, Brunt and especially Hegazi very poor. Concerning #wba— Brom Jon (@Jon_Foz) September 15, 2018
I love Chris Brunt, he has been a cracking player for us over the years and is a fantastic clubman but to see him struggling week after week in CM is painful to watch, it’s not working and needs changing.....#wba— Gemma Downes (@gemmadowneswba) September 15, 2018
Brunt isn’t a CM... he is too old and slow for that now. Why not just give field a chance alongside Livermore? Give him a chance.— Lauren (@LaurenWBA) September 15, 2018
Without a doubt I love brunt through and through. But he's just a passenger in the centre of midfield. Anyone moaning about Hoolahan aswell is saft he's got more creativity as it stands then brunt and Livermore. #wba #dissapointed— calum francis (@francisfuzzy189) September 15, 2018
#wba v #bcfc tonight was like a game being played by ex-pros and/or long term injury victims getting a run out for the 1st time in a while. Brunt is done for me, in his prime he wasn’t a CM, so why now ?— Mark Gardiner (@Gardo100) September 15, 2018
Chris Brunt I love you more than my family but you’re finished #wba— O (@owenhamilton_) September 14, 2018
Brunt didn’t look too good again today either... we looked a lot better with Barry on. Where is Field though? Hopefully there’s some changes on Tuesday. #WBA— Richard Burden (@RichJBurden) September 14, 2018
Brunt has been on the books of West Brom since the summer of 2007 when he move from Sheffield Wednesday for a transfer fee reported by The Daily Star to be worth £7 million.
The former Northern Ireland international has been a regular for the Baggies over the years, but there are signs that the 33-year-old is past his prime.
