Not really a must. Other areas more important. GK for one and another CB

So until then we are one injury away from no strikers we can not make the same mistake again. Wickham is a big man that will find it tough to get match fit. After such a bad injury players pick up secondary injuries we need another striker.

Presumably there is a chance that wickham won't make the squad initially and maybe be part of it in January when he's fully fit?

We need one striker absolute minimum but I'd like to see us sign two, with the second versatile enough to play on the wing if needed.

The thought of having to rely on Wickham is worrying. He's got talent but the injuries have been never ending.

Absolutely and a superb back up to CB when fully fit. Very good player just needs that bit of luck.

Not yet convinced by CW even when fit.

Would love to be proved wrong but he does not look like a prolific striker to me.

He's still very young at 24 so too early to say that.

Bear in mind Glenn Murray was playing for Rochdale/Brighton in League 1 at 24. Wickham just needs to stay fit and have a run of games- there is talent there.

Whilst I'm far from a sports scientist, it always looks to me like he's actually built up a bit too much muscle and would benefit from trimming down a bit. Can't be easy on the knees being quite so top heavy.

Not sure we can justify someone on 60k a week or maybe come good in many years time when he's already had time at many clubs. If he comes good then make sure we sell him with a buy back clause. He won't start enough here to see his potential come good.

I'm also unconvinced from his record and games at Palace and think he's an expensive backup. Sadly I don't see us shifting him with his injury record and on his wages. So, he's a backup I hope we don't need to use often, but hope in proven wrong and he does come good here.

We don't have enough CFs for us actively look for him to leave. But I'd hate to see him block an academy lad. Don't think he would merit that based on performances. Would love to see an academy given the time and patience he has had.
