Memphis Depay Is Getting Even More Stick From Manchester United Fans
Manchester United fans are rapidly running out of patience with Memphis Depay and it's seems that no matter how hard the young Dutch winger tries, nothing will go right for him on the pitch, at the moment.
After beginning his United career in such a promising manner, with fine Champions League efforts against Club Brugges and PSV Eindhoven as well as several dangerous performances in the Premier League, last year's Dutch player of the year lost both his confidence and his place in most of Louis Van Gaal's starting XI.
Much of the criticism aimed at Memphis has been unfair, given that he's a young player arriving from a weak league with a heap of expectation on his shoulders, yet after a few dreadful efforts that almost left Shrewsbury's stadium during tonight's FA Cup fifth round game and one free kick that clattered into teammate Anthony Martial's face, United's fans (and several gleeful neutrals) tore into the former PSV wonderkid on social media.
Just saw that Depay shot hahahaha

Depay is a Dutch Ryan Babel.

Oh my goodness.. Depay's rocket of a free kick which was on target was blocked by Marital... I'm laughing so bad ..

Everyone please take notice of Memphis Depay. Watch how he hides when #United have the ball. Serious lack of confidence even against #L1team

Christ, I think that some of Depay's shots tonight have actually landed in Memphis.

Is Memphis trying to reach his dad with these shots or is he actually going to aim for the white thing soon?- J (@MatahoIic) February 22, 2016
Memphis smashing a free kick into Martial's head basically sums up United's season.- Ben McAleer (@BenMcAleer1) February 22, 2016
Nice work Memphis. Good Memphising imo.- Paul (@UtdRantcast) February 22, 2016
Memphis Depay with two hopeless early efforts. One struck a sign on the roof of the stand behind the goal - the other just a bit lower.- Phil McNulty (@philmcnulty) February 22, 2016
