Aston Villa had to settle for a point away to Birmingham City in the Second City Derby on Sunday, playing out a tense 0-0 draw at St Andrew’s.
For the neutral it was pretty dismal viewing but given the high stakes nature of a passionate derby, both managers will likely settle for a point.
It was a day that the attacking, creative talents on both sides failed to shine with chances few and far between.
That left Villa fans particularly frustrated, especially given Birmingham’s struggles in the Championship this season.
Supporters singled out Robert Snodgrass as one of the team’s poorer performers and are looking for more from the summer signing after years of goals and assists and other teams.
He’s so far just scored and assisted once in nine appearances, both coming against Burton Albion in September.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday performance…

Glad Jedi is back, much better option than Whelan. Not the best of games for Snodgrass and Kodjia still doesn't look match fit for me #avfc

Frustrated that Snodgrass was anonymous today.Came inside & didn’t offer when we had the ball & hugged touchline when Blues had it #avfc

VERY disappointed with a few of our attacking players today. Still not convinced Snodgrass offers much at all #AVFC

Shocking tactics again, outplayed yet again. Snodgrass ineffective again. Why persist lumping it up when it just comes back #AVFC

Didn't get the Snodgrass hype before he came and still dont see what he brings apart from a good set piece. Please prove me wrong #avfc
