Ex-Arsenal star Frimpong flops on Barnsley debut

Emmanuel Frimpong has not begun his career at Barnsley in the way he'd have hoped, with social networking disputes and a debut red card. 

The Ghanaian transferred to the Tykes for an undisclosed fee from Arsenal in the hope of getting regular football in the Championship.

He began his Barnsley career by tweeting "how am I gonna draw girls now", showing he's more worried about the effects of his transfer off the field, rather than on.

This got a very negative response from the fans surrounding the club, resulting in him quickly deleting the tweet.

Despite this, Danny Wilson put Frimpong in his starting eleven with high hopes that Wenger underestimated the 22 year old, as he gave him a chance to prove himself straight away for the club.

After not performing for Arsenal this season, the injury prone Ghanaian had a lot to prove in his debut in the big Derby game against Sheffield Wednesday.

This excitement quickly turned to horror as he got a booking in the 24th minute after repetitive fouls. Following this, he was given a second yellow card just 6 minutes later and took an early walk down the tunnel.

Barnsley have had a very slow season so far, with only one point holding them off the bottom spot in the Championship.

This is not the performance they was hoping for as they walk away with no points, losing 1-0 at Hillsborough.

The midfielder has not lived up to expectations at recent clubs, such as Charlton, Wolves and Arsenal as injuries have been a constant restraint on his career.

Frimpong and everyone surrounding Barnsley Football Club are hoping he will change his ways, although if his first performance was anything to go by, he may not be the man for job.
