Love Wickham, if he can come on and play like that every game we won't need a new striker.

This is a joke right?

Play like today.. what you mean screw up a one on one with the keeper?

Hes not premier standard. Hes too big and slow. Seems a nice lad etc but is nowhere near the quality we need.

He has scored one PL goal at SP for us.

I think most the hype around us getting Benteke was a result of watching Wickham fail week after week.

I have no idea why some on here seem to think he was, is or will be a good player for us????

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Give the lad a break! First game in a long time. As a striker you are measured on goals scored. Of course he should have passed to Wilf when alone with the goalie, but I can fully understand his mind set.
Putting the ball behind Roberto and in the net. Kept injury-free (not sure if possible) and we have a decent player in Connor W.

I thought he did OK. Of course if he had confidence he should have chipped Roberto but the pass to Zaha was not a straightforward alternative with a defender between them. Also he contributed 5% towards Ayew's goal

Need to get this absolute donkey off the wage bill. I dont care for sentiments, he is s***e and finished as a top level football player and possible a football player at any level. He has got a fair deal at the club, made lots of money. Get rid quick.

I agree and sometime wonder if other people are watching the same game as me

I think you are being too kind to the chap. When he went through on goal it was like watching someone in an over 40s game in my local park. He is finished at this level.

I think Wickham is a talented player but my main grouse with him when hes been fit is that he looks as though hes playing within himself for large periods and doesnt put himself about enough.

He was a lot stronger on the ball yesterday than anything seen of Benteke in recent years and made runs into the right areas. Again something Benteke has done little of.

His miss was poor. He looked surprised not to be ruled offside and he made a heavy touch which allowed the GK to close him down.
Think VAR would have ruled it out anyway (was it looked at on the telly ?)

Although I have serious doubts about him ever making it at PL level again, the fact is that he needs regular first team football to regain full fitness and match sharpness. We can't afford that luxury in our starting eleven so he really needs to go out on loan until the end of the season.

As for yesterday I can forgive him that miss, he hadn't been on the pitch long and that alone makes it harder.

But he was gasping for breathe right from the off.
