This one is clearly going to turn out to be a very good signing. He's an ideal centre forward for the way we play, bringing our fast and skilful attacking support players into the game. A Mark Bright type, more than a Glenn Murray.

He grew into the game. Personally i thought he had a poor first half, gave away a free kick in a dangerous area under no pressure and like norwich nearly cost us a pen.He also missed a sitter. 2nd half i thought he relaxed and grew in confidence, linking up well with the midfield and widemen.Deserves to keep his place.

He will get better once he settles in . There is a very good player there and we just need to coax it out .

I have been impressed by Wickham in the short time I've seen him play....of course he is not up to speed yet, he is being rotated with Murray, playing in one of the toughest leagues in the world and been up against decent teams, and has a big price tag......all of our best centre forwards needed time to settle in and blossom....Wright, Armstrong, Morrison, Johnson, Murray all had the benefit of a lower profile start because of our league position, Sako has benefited from hitting the net twice and is instantly loved, if Wickham had scored rather than hit the post against Arsenal he would already be getting more positive press. Seems the right player for us

He will get better game by game, he is just 22. He does concern me at corners and giving away a penalty I just hope it is not in a big game.

Wasn't excited about this signing, and the jury's still out for me, but it's early days. I just hope they have a word with him about being more careful defending corners.

Just needs to be careful now. Been highlighted twice now for fouls in the box defending corners and refs will start to look for it.

I think he is making a good start. He is very comfortable on the ball for a big guy and his layoffs were excellent. Just needs the striker smarts/experience adding to what he has and he will be a top player. Early days but very good signs.

Just needs one goal, and then I reckon they'll start flowing for him. Goals are coming from everywhere on the pitch for us atm, just wait until Wickham starts scoring!

I don't think he's one of those strikers that will ever hit a load of goals in a season.

He just needs game time.
Was excellent yesterday.
Shows what an upgrade he is.

Agree about his defending from corners - he's almost certain to give away pens if he continues to defend like that. I thought the Norwich one could easily have been given; I didn't think yesterday's was a pen but some homer refs would have given it.

Last 20 mins he played really well. If he can replicate that across the 90 then he'll be a real handful.

First half I thought he was a bit weak, he kept falling over, maybe to be fair to him he was under instruction to gets fouls but it wasnt working.

2nd half he stood up alot more and was much improved, really good link up play.

One area where he needs to improve is getting free in the box for crosses, he seemed to be hiding behind the back post once or twice but this is an area where he could learn from Murray.

Overall though with his extra mobility I think he was very good.

Agree with this. Very much like how Jerome was for us but better.

Dont think he has much instinct in the box, and have generally been a little disappointed with his aerial presence. However his movement outside the box and his general hold up and link up play (with his feet) is excellent. Technically the best forward we have at the club but certainly needs to add other aspects to his game.

Yesterday had a poor first half and then grew into the game. That said he was up against probably the best centre back and got little help from the ref.

His link up play is very clever.
Think he might get sent off quite a few times and he needs to stop holding players shirts.

When the 2nd went in I initially presumed it was Wickham and thought 'nice one Connor' thinking it was a good way for him to get off the mark, was obviously delighted and astounded when I realised it was Ward but...

for me once Wickham gets his first, sooner rather than later hopefully, he'll be more confident as our CF, has looked like he can be the man to me so far !

Pretty much how i saw it.
He needs to get confidence and attack space in the box a bit more.

Don't do this very often, completely agree with your post. Grew into the game and held the ball up really well in the second half.
