Fair kop to the ex-Swansea player who has dealt with the stick from Joleon Lescott, Wayne Routledge, Leroy Lita and Danny Graham like a pro but he can only pray that the travelling Aston Villa fans are kind this weekend.
Scott Sinclair is really not having the best time of it at the moment. His move to Manchester City has seen him play on just three occasions and now it would be difficult to think of a player in the country who is getting more stick on the training ground then the former Swansea City player.
For those who don’t keep up to date with world of reality television Sinclair’s current girlfriend Helen Flanagan has been the main talking point of the ITV show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. The former Coronation Street actor has earned a reputation for being slightly, well shall we say squeamish, on the show and that has left her fodder for the general public who continue to nominate her to undertake the trials and tribulations of the ‘bush tucker trials’. For those not familiar with the show a prime example of what they have to do saw Flanagan eating an ostrich anus the other day.
While he may have left Swansea City that has not stopped some of his previous team-mates getting involved on the ribbing and fair play to Sinclair who has shown plenty of thick skin to the issue as while a lot of the stick could be passed off as fair banter as always there has been the occasional troll who has overstepped the mark.
So here are my favourite Tweets on the issue…
