Comments from the manager and coaches in the past have indicated the opposite to be true and that in fact Wickham's issue is that he has often tried to come back too soon after aggravating injuries. Given we renewed his contract for another year in 2019 it suggests his attitude is right as I doubt the club would have given him an extension if he was showing no effort to recover.

What he could really do is an extended run of first-team games to try and build up some strength and match fitness, but that won't happen here. If you could say to me that he will stay fit with no more injuries then I would give him another year as I still think there's a classy footballer in there, but that is not possible and given his injury record he has to go now.

It may well do, as that overarching mental attitude has the potential to directly affect the level of work put in and the compliance with doís and doníts, during treatment and rehabilitation. Some will work harder and be more committed to looking after themselves than others and that will directly affect their bodies and their recovery rates.

There have also been numerous studies conducted on the very subject of how mental attitude can affect treatment and recovery, furthermore highlighting that the two can be intrinsically linked.

Iím not saying there has been anything wrong with Connors attitude, only that Elphers40 expressed opinion cannot be dismissed out of hand, because he may well be right.

But what can be said with absolute certainty is that neither Elpher, nor anyone else on this site, has any access to any information or evidence to suggest that Wickham has anything other than the requisite approach to his profession.

Honestly, scroll back through a few pages of this one thread alone. Is it any wonder footballers, managers and chairmen keep supporters at arms length? What if you or I were subject to the same baseless, unfair public criticism?

Apparently Connor has suffered another 'minor' injury prior to the Chelsea game.

He's incredibly consistent.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

And this is why Roy doesn't rate him.

Fair enough he's had serious injuries but Roy once gave an interview and hinted that Wickham wasn't prepared to put himself on the line.

 


One more point

When you are in the public spotlight and you earn thousands of pounds a day let alone a week some would argue there is a responsibility that sits with you to be beyond reproach and there are plenty that are not. Iím not sure why you are feeling the need to support footballers, managers and chairmen, Iím pretty sure they donít give a damn about you.

He's spent most of his career at Palace on the treatment table. He's picked up another knock and is unavailable for selection. Case closed.

Iím not supporting them particularly, Iím criticising those who feel so free to slate a man on a personal level without the slightest shred of evidence. Iíd make the same point if it was someone other than a footballer getting such unfair treatment.

To be clear, I havenít a clue about Wickhams attitude. He might be an absolute trooper or he might be a massive chancer. The trick surely is not to compensate for that lack of knowledge with total guesswork.

Precisely! And all I was saying is in light of that complete lack of insight or knowledge, one cannot dismiss Elphers expressed opinion out of hand, as people were trying to do, because it is possible that he is correct.

Eh?
It's possible that the prime minister is a nonce, that Steve Coppell is a white supremacist and that Ant and Dec are ISIS supporters isn't it?

I mean, if I voice such opinions you couldn't disprove them, could you?

Would that make it OK for me to make such suggestions without evidence?
