Emmanuel Frimpong red card: How Barnsley will cope without new signing

Emmanuel Frimpong saw red on his debut.

There was a great deal of excitement surrounding EmmanuelFrimpong’s debut for Barnsley on Feb. 1, but that excitement quickly turned to shock as the Ghanaian midfielder was sent off to start his career with the Tykes.

According to Barnsley’s official Twitter account, Frimpong was showed a red after picking up his second yellow in the 30th minute against Sheffield Wednesday.

his comes just one day after Barnsley completed a transfer deal with Arsenal, per the Gunners’ official website.

Frimpong initially came to Emirates Stadium with a great deal of promise, but he never lived up to it in limited playing time at Arsenal, nor did he come through in three separate loan spells.

Despite the notion that he was misused by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger,Frimpong wished his former team well as he made the move from the EPL to the English League Championship.

Barnsley currently find themselves in the relegation zone, as they are in 23rd place with 21 points. They were obviously hoping that the 22-year-old Frimpong would provide a positive spark right off the bat, but that clearly didn’t come to fruition.

This season has been a nightmarish one for the Tykes, and Frimpong’s immediate ejection was a microcosm of the way things have gone for them.

With or without him, Barnsley are in a very difficult spot. They are just one point from hitting rock bottom in the standings, and they are five points out of the safety zone.

Frimpong didn’t show any signs that he is the man to turn their season around.

The 2013-14 campaign is looking more and more like a lost cause forBarnsley, and a trip to Football League One in 2014-15 is a very real possibility.
