Wiseman Closes Twitter Account
Barnsley defender Scott Wiseman has been forced to close down his twitter account because of the abuse he has been receiving from Barnsley fans about his performances this season.
Wiseman has played most of the season out of position at centre back due to injuries in the early part of the season.
In the early part of the season he did well there and he and Foster complemented each other with Foster to win the ball in the air and Wiseman to cover with his pace.
Recently Wiseman has made a few mistakes which resulted in him being dropped for the game against Burnley.
From what I hear from fans on the terraces it seems like the majority have a grudge against Wiseman no matter if he plays good, bad or indifferent and for me he has been all three at times this season but he could put a man of the match display in and it wouldn`t be enough for the fans.
I hear many things from many fans such as he`s Hill`s favourite because he came from Rochdale or I don`t like because he knocked Bobby Hassell out of the team. Rarely do I hear reasons for him being so disliked that are to do with football.
Some players just never click with fans at certain clubs and maybe that is the case with Wiseman. The fact that Hill dropped Foster from centre half and left Wiseman in also left many fans, myself included, baffled but no matter who plays there, there seems to be problems.
McNulty was awful there against Burnley, worse than Wiseman had been in any game this season. Yet McNulty played well there last season and could just be lacking matches. So maybe Hill was right to stick with Wiseman for so long?
Every fan has the right to their opinion as they all pay good money to watch their team but I don`t think abusing players on twitter is on at all.
To abuse a player in this way is uncalled for and in the long run won`t do the team any good particularly if Wiseman has to play, something like that will always be in the back of his mind and will affect him as a player.
I am interested to hear the fans perception on Wiseman as a player so get on here and give your comments.
I would also like to know if anyone has seen this abuse on twitter. If you have let us know how bad it was in your opinion. No need to repeat what was said, particularly if there was swearing involved.
