this season was his 'one last chance'.

A crucial component of being a professional sportsman is remaining fit. He has been injured for the first 2/3 of the season and has played 0 minutes of first team football. This is not a one off his injury record over the previous 5 years has been poor, even taking into account the ACL injury, which clearly wasn't his fault.
Some players are just unlucky with injuries (e.g. Kieron Dyer etc), others it appears their bodies are not robust enough. CW appears to fall into both categories.

Time to cut our losses.

Good post, totally agree.

I think he is a very good player. I would give him one last roll of the dice.

Disagree. He offers goals and attacking threat when fit. Worth giving him one last chance.

Hes scored 1 in 5 for us, so as a striker doesn't offer goals.

1 in 5 starts or 1 in 5 appearances?

Ha 7/8 goals pretty good. Also as others have said interested to see the goals v starts ratio.

(Has he ever starred a league game for us?)

The club have wasted enough money on him and it would be lunacy to waste any more. Whatever opinions are about his playing ability, there's no denying he is a constant sick note and the risk just isn't warranted.

Isnít it funny how as his contract is about to expire heís suddenly fit and raring to go!

We canít afford to be throwing 60k a week away in the forlorn hope heíll come good I the end (I have shared that sentiment up until this year) but it ainít going to happen and we need to move on - as we do with all the others who havenít delivered.

Fair post. Can't argue with any of that. I would just personally give him one more to see what he can do. But understand the counter point of view.

If we are as skint as rumoured it may well be cheaper to keep him than replace him

If we are really that skint then it makes more sense to get rid of him, rather than paying him to spend all his time in the treatment room. Also an opportunity to promote a youngster or to give Mateta more game time.
