Gabby Agbonlahor produced a poor display as Aston Villa were beaten 1-0 at Norwich – and fans on Twitter were fuming with his performance.
Striker Nelson Oliveira’s long-range effort was the only goal of the game as the Midlands side produced a mediocre display at Carrow Road on Tuesday night.
Agbonlahor, who was substituted after 72 minutes, started only his second game for the club after Steve Bruce brought him back into the first-team setup this season.
The 30-year-old was left out in the cold by Bruce’s predecessor, Roberto Di Matteo, but following the arrival of the former Manchester United defender in mid-October, Agbonlahor has played six games under the promotion expert.
But it is fair to say supporters on Social Media were not pleased with his contribution to the game as they criticised Bruce for selecting the senior player.
Fans stated that the club’s longest serving player is now finished and that he has lost the limited ability he had.
Additionally supporters believe Bruce has got the team selection wrong for their previous two away games.
Fans urged the Villa hierarchy to get rid of the forward in January as they were also critical of Ashley Westwood’s performance.
Villa travel to London on Sunday afternoon when they take on Ian Holloway’s QPR at Loftus Road.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
@VillaTill The last 2 away games he has got his starting 11 totally wrong.Playing Agbonlahor for 70 minutes is a joke

Gabby Agbonlahor – Whatever it was, it has gone and it ain't ever coming back. Stop giving him chances #avfc

Worst performance under Bruce. Agbonlahor should never start again. Westwood not far behind. Elphick looking the Championship CB he is #avfc

Got everything we deserved! If Bruce's team selection is bewildering! Agbonlahor? Ayew? Wetwood? Why hand back armband to Elphick? Worrying!

If we have any hopes of getting out of this league players like agbonlahor, Hutton and Westwood should be shown the door asap #avfc

Seriously considering swiftly exiting Loftus Road on Sunday before the match if Agbonlahor is in the starting line up #AVFC

In other Aston Villa news, this first-team player must be sold in January after another poor display.
