Charlton fans on Twitter were fuming with striker Nicky Ajose recently after his two starts in the cup games against Mansfield and Swansea’s U21 team, with many fans calling for him to be dropped or even released altogether.
Ajose signed for the Addicks in the summer of 2016 having impressed at Swindon Town the season before, but after just half a season he was loaned back to his former club to finish the 2016/17 campaign.
He was then also loaned out for the first half of last season to Bury, making this his third loan move to the Shakers throughout his career.
Ajose came through the Manchester United youth system, but at 27 years of age he has only netted one goal in nine appearances throughout all competitions for Charlton this season, and this came in an 8-0 club-record win over Stevenage in the EFL Trophy.
Check out some of the most damning tweets after Ajose’s recent performances in the FA Cup and EFL Trophy below.
What we learned out of these last two cup games is that Fosu, Marshall & Ajose are all useless #CAFC
Get out our club

He’s a complete waste of time. Never performs when he’s been given a shot. League 2 at best.
