i personally see wickham as a very similar situation to murray.

for 1 minute, forget the promotion season, as had wickham been up front that season he would have scored 30 goals for us also.

been injured for 18 months and has had to work his way back into the 1st team squad, both are quite similar players and connor could do a very good job for us given the chance/minutes.

i know connor doesnt have the history murray had with us but he deserves the same amount of support, and if he gets his form back, we potentially have 7 yearsof decent striking ability from connor.

he has ability galore, you dont lose that ability..only
confidence.

At least now that Wickham has signed a new contract, we have nothing to worry about up front. We will have Sorloth, Wickham and even Benteke may stay. World beaters springs to mind.

100% total and utter garbage. The dumbest thing I've ever read on this forum and that's saying something.

Wickham has never come close to Murray's numbers in his career and never will.

Here's his record regarding league appearances and goals:

'09-'10: 26/4, '10-'11: 37/9, '11-'12: 16/1, '12-'13: 18/1, '13-'14: 31/13,

'14-'15: 36/5, '15-'16: 21/5, '16-'17: 8/2, '17-18: 0/0, '18-'19: 6/0.

Please don't come back and say: "Yeah, but he didn't have Zaha and Bolasie either side of him."

He still wouldn't have got close to Murray. Anyone with a clue about football can see that.

What I found funny a few months back was that the club released a video, or even short documentary if you will, showing the agonising, long, lonely hours Benteke spent trying to get back to fitness after his knee operations and injuries. It was clearly a move from Parish and his public relations background to get the supporters heart strings strumming and on his side after falling out of favour with the majority of the fan base, but they never did it for Wickham. Is it because he's not working as hard or they're not interested in doing the same promo videos for him?

Hmm, well, perhaps I'm making mountains, curious though.

Judging by his recent training videos on Instagram, he’s definitely working hard enough. Hopefully he can stay healthy this season.
