Nottingham Forest lost 3-1 to Brentford to make it seven games in succession without a win – and supporters weren’t happy with Tobias Figueiredo.
The Portuguese defender has looked out of sorts for many weeks and his inclusion in the team remains a mystery.
He cost Forest at least a point in the game against Swansea and hasn’t covered himself in glory for the last few months.
Here is bad form was capped by switching off in the 15th minute and allowing Henrik Dalsgaard to nod home Brentford’s opening goal.
Forest tried desperately to get back into the game but in the 83rd minute the game was over.
Josh Dasilva taking advantage of some loose defending and curling beyond Brice Samba.
Then some more calamitous defending by Figueiredo allowed Ivan Toney to score a third.
One perhaps positive did emerge regarding the former Sporting Lisbon player. His fifth yellow card of the season means he won’t play against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.
Following another horror-show yesterday, supporters vented their frustration at the centre-back.
They are keen to see him spend a spell on the sidelines – even after his suspension is served.
Here is what they were saying about Figueiredo on Twitter.
He needs dropping— Michael Cooper (@mikecoop82) December 12, 2020
Quite pleased he picked up a yellow today and gets a ban. I always back our players, but my patience is wearing thin with him. Gives away clumsy fouls and positional awareness is poor. Would not be sad to see him go in Jan, and Mbe Soh/Worral/Daws/McKenna as our choices.— Ken Blackburn (@blackburn_ken) December 12, 2020
Love the ref... Figs banned x— Dean Willetts (@DeanWilletts4) December 12, 2020
