Some Sunderland fans are unhappy with the lack of minutes being given to the Mackems' on-loan Tottenham Hotspur striker, Kazaiah Sterling.
Sterling was not introduced until second-half stoppage time as Sunderland drew 0-0 with Barnsley on Tuesday - barely adding to the 31 minutes he has played since his January move from Tottenham.
On several occasions, the 20-year-old has failed to even make Jack Ross's matchday squad.
And this is what those of a Sunderland persuasion have had to say about his cameo at Oakwell...
Power off for sterling, took your time JR mate— Speak Sunderland (@SpeakSAFC) 12 March 2019
Think Ross failed to dictate or change anything in the game tonight. When we had the wind it could have been an opportunity to give Grigg some help earlier than he did with bringing Sterling on a minute to go #SAFC— Scott (@76skelly) 12 March 2019
Whys sterling coming on with 2 mins to go baffling. 15 mins to stretch the game. Did he even touch the ball pointless #safc— Jordan Gowling (@JordanGowling29) 12 March 2019
Power should be nowhere near the number 10 role! Why not put Matthews RB, Hume LB and move O’nien to CAM. Sterling needs more of a chance than 2 minutes aswell! #SAFC— Ben Cornell (@bencornell7) 12 March 2019
Needs to change one of the 2 cm's. Both looked very leggy last night. As we said Oviedo wont play. Agree on Matthews and I'd like to see Sterling— safcmod (@SafcMod) 13 March 2019
Speaking via the Sunderland Echo afterwards, Ross suggested Sterling's fortunes could improve in the coming weeks, with Duncan Watmore sidelined again.
And the following Mackems fans see the Londoner - whose performances for Tottenham's Under-23s earned him the Premier league 2 plyer of the month award for January - as the most obvious Watmore replacement.
Watmores latest time out must open the door for Sterling— Mick Pereira (@marathon_mick69) 12 March 2019
He must have something to offer at this level you would think#SAFC
You’d hope so or why bring him other than panic. But saying that you could argue Kimi (can’t spell his name so not gonna try) should be given a go too— Scott (@76skelly) 12 March 2019
Third-place Sunderland remain four points behind Barnsley, who along with league leaders Luton have played a game more than their rivals from the north east.
Will Sterling's Sunderland spell benefit the Tottenham youngster?
