Derby County’s miserable form continued as they were beaten by Stoke City yesterday.
Jacob Brown scored the only goal of the game, with Wayne Rooney’s side struggling throughout, as they failed to record a shot on target.
That highlights what a poor team performance it was, and one man who failed to make an impact was Max Bird. The 20-year-old midfielder came on just after the hour mark for Louie Sibley and he didn’t impact the game as he would’ve wanted.
The youngster was careless in possession, losing the ball on a few occasions, and he also didn’t do enough to stop the cross that resulted in the only goal.
The ultimate 2021 Derby County quiz – Can you get 24/24 correct?
Therefore, Bird came in for plenty of criticism following his display from the bench, although it should be pointed out that he wasn’t the only one to take stick from the fans.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter to his performance…
