It would be fair to say that the Stoke City supporters were not pleased with what they saw from Tom Ince in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.
Ince played 74 minutes of the contest before being replaced and he has been accused of lacking effort during the Championship clash at the Bet365 Stadium.
The 27-year-old only had one shot and made just one tackle against Villa, according to WhoScored.
Ince has had a hand in 10 Championship goals this season – scoring six and providing four assists.
However, he has not registered in the league since the start of December and the Stoke fans were not very pleased with what they saw on Saturday afternoon.
Ince is certainly a talented footballer, but there is a general feeling that he could put in more effort when things are going against his team.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the frustrated Stoke fans can be seen below:
Tom Ince is an absolute waster. Not one ounce of effort today #SCFC

Some genuine 0/10 contenders on that pitch today. Diouf, McClean, Ince, Williams.

People round me gave edwards stick for their goal but for me the root cause was ince not offering anything for him

Bizarre what’s happened to him last few weeks, looks a shadow of the player he was first half of the season
