These Southampton fans have been having fun describing West Bromwich Albion striker Charlie Austin on a recent Twitter post.

Austin, who is valued at £4.5 million (as per Transfermarkt), was recently in the centre of controversy after the Englishman had publicly slammed Southampton fans on Twitter. This led to the Football Association asking the striker to explain the comments he had made on social media.

Does Austin deserve to get banned by the FA?

Absolutely, he deserves that

Absolutely, he deserves that

That will be too harsh

That will be too harsh

With that in mind, a Saints-related page ‘Southampton News’ asked many of the club’s fans to describe the West Bromwich Albion man – with wrong answers only. The St. Mary’s faithful obliged by mocking their former striker.

West Brom signed Austin in the summer for a £4 million fee. This season, he has made 28 appearances in all competitions for the club and has a tally of nine goals.

He was at Southampton from January 2016 before his summer sale and during this time, he made a total of 81 appearances in all competitions for the Saints. He scored 20 goals and racked up four assists as well.

What do we think?

While it is arguable whether Austin should have abused Saints fans like he did, he perhaps deserves treatment like this. And Southampton fans have every right to poke fun at him in this manner.
