Wolves Fans Blast Ikeme Over Howler In Birmingham Defeat

Wolves Fans Blast Ikeme Over Howler In Birmingham Defeat

 

By James Agberebi:

Fans of English Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers have come down hard on Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme following his first half error in his team's 2-1 home loss in the league to Birmingham City on Friday night.

Ikeme looked to have easily caught a wayward cross from Craig Gardner, but dropped the ball straight into the path of Maikel Kieftenbeld who tapped the ball into the net to put Birmingham 1-0 up.

Prior to scoring the first goal, Birmingham had failed to register a shot on target but they used it as inspiration to double their lead through former Wolves man David Davis.

Wolves got a goal back after Birmingham were reduced to 10 men in the second half, but they couldn’t find an equaliser.

The defeat leaves Wolves 20th in the 24-team Championship league table.

Following Ikeme's mistake, some of Wolves fans took to their Twitter handles to express their frustration.

Steven @WWFC_Steve stated that he has always doubted Ikeme's ability to handle crosses.

He wrote: "Sorry but that's why I've never trusted Ikeme when it comes to cross."

Robert Kostur @Robbo_WWFC also laid into the Nigeria keeper. 
"Ikeme is experienced enough to know he was stretching too much for that, he was never gonna hold it – even I knew that."

Ian @WolfieOnTees added:

"That was abysmal Ikeme. Sorry but it was."

  Larry Webb @laz7903 wrote: "Only a hat trick from Carl Ikeme will make up for that bit of goal keeping.. #shocking."

Paul. @Paulpablo90 went as far as wishing Ikeme injury, writing: "With any luck Ikeme punches another tactics board and breaks his hand. How Jacket thought he was better than Hennessy…"
