Last night Crystal Palace endured a torrid evening against an excellent Brighton and Hove Albion side who swatted aside the Eagles, winning 3-1 in spite of having had a man sent off in the first half.
It seems Crystal Palace fans have taken exception to James Tomkins' display in particular as they poor defeat to leaves Roy Hodgson's men wallowing down in 15th wallowing in the league table.
Here's what the Palace fans said of Tomkins on social media:
Tomkins has had his worst half in a palace shirt— not_even_mad_boi. (@JoshuaCPFC) 4 December 2018
Tell you who’s got off lightly from last night; James Tomkins. People banging on Monday morning about him being one of our best ever centre backs. Do me a favour. Fucking amateur for their 3rd. #cpfc— Angus Mainland (@Angus66Mainland) 5 December 2018
In desperate need of a break, James Tomkins has gone on leave in Brighton tonight..— Matthew Collins (@MattHopeNotHate) 4 December 2018
Goals from Glen Murray and Leon Balogun but Palace two goals down just half an hour in, but Tomkin's poor night was highlighted clearly when Brighton scored their third of the evening.
The Englishman seemed to get the better of Florin Andone initially but then inexplicably failed to deal with the situation, allowing the attacker a shot a goal which beat Wayne Hennessey.
Worst game in a palace shirt for Tomkins, he’s allowed an off game just wish it wasn’t against the scum!— Marc (@Marc_S_88) 4 December 2018
I think Tomkins is actually lying somewhere tied up in a cupboard. Brighton's youth goalkeeper is actually on the field wearing a Tomkins mask. #CPFC— Adam (@AdamFlinter) 4 December 2018
Go and watch Brighton v Palace highlights and the 3rd Brighton goal if you wanna see amateur hour defending from James Tomkins. A criminal goal to concede.— Tormund Giantsbane (@tosin_GoodTimes) 5 December 2018
Palace ratings out of 10 for tonight— Mark Williams (@MWmagic) 4 December 2018
