Sako started so well for us when he arrived - quick, with a strong shot.

Hodgson may provide the coaching he needs to develop that talent again.

He's a championship player, and not a very good one.

On the Five Year Plan podcast they're suggesting Sako should play up fron in Benteke's absence. We've reached a sorry state of affairs if suggesting Sako is the interim answer to the striker problem. Most fans thought he was championship level at best (and that's the polite version) until a couple of games ago! Fraizer Campbell is a better player - and he was widely ridiculed/slagged off by the majority of fans.

Whatever some think of Sako as a winger (and we've been blessed with terrific ones over the years), it's unfair to judge Sako as a striker as aside from Huddersfield (which he obviously scored), he's not played the role in a competitive game for us. Let's give him a few games and then judge. I'm not convinced he is the answer but willing to give him a chance.

It's catching up with them and what positive things he does next that counts. After an encouraging start which seems so long ago, he looks like so many who are content to shirk responsibility, keep his head down and enjoy his lucrative wages. Fans may not be professional judges on any player's worth but we generally can see those who try.

Carrot and stick is often the need for some individuals in life and so far this guy has had so much carrot, he could turn out as a chocolate orange.

I hope he grasps his chance and starts to justify his wages. He is not going to start running the channels & harrying defenders, but CB hasn't done that either this season.

Let's hope he can get another corner to bounce of his head at OT!

The first time I saw Sako was at Molineux when he was very impressive on the left wing especially in the first half when Ward (I think) was having his work cut out trying to stop his crosses to Ebanks-Blake. This was in October 2012 and the promotion season. Zaha scored two outstanding goals to win the match and that may have been the catalyst to Ferguson making Zaha his final transfer in at OT. Not to digress, Sako though was a formidable opposition winger. Big and powerful and also quick.

Pardew then got him in the Summer 2015 when Palace got off to a flyer and Sako became an instant hit with the late winner on his Palace debut against Villa. Another goal at Chelsea and it looked that getting Sako was a real coup for Pardew. Then came the Winter slump for Palace and ironically perhaps against Villa, Sako played up front and through the middle in that dreadful return match at Villa Park when Hennessy's fumble gifted an up to then, hapless Villa team, a goal and ultimately a win. Sako was subbed after an hour.

Sako had up until then only appeared in fits and starts. Perhaps through injury but after the Chelsea goal I don't ever remember any high points from him. I felt Sako may have felt intimidated being on the pitch at the same time as both Zaha and Bolasie but often it seemed he ducked out of challenges when his physique would appear to give him an advantage.

I do though recall a post on the BBS before the match at Villa quoting a Wolves fan saying that Sako should never be played as a lone striker as when Wolves had tried him there he had flopped.

I really would like to see someone grab the opportunity that Benteke's injury has offered but for any player to do it, much depends on attitude and courage, perhaps even more at times than skill. Does Sako have it and to play as a lone central striker? I keep thinking about my doubts about his courage to play that role and that game at Villa Park in January last year.

It's worth remembering he scored 36 goals for Wolves in 3 years. Not to be sniffed at, albeit in a worse league but shows he knows where the goal is.

That's been the one saving grace about him; his all round play is Championship/League 1 standard, but shooting is strangely Premier League level.

Think he played as the central striker in the away game at Aston Villa a couple of seasons back.
