I said he looked more like a back row forward and they're also not fat. I think he's carrying too much bulk - and a stone overweight might be an exaggeration, I accept that much - which will affect his ability to run around as a lone striker. It will also probably contribute to him suffering injuries.

So you can continue claiming I said he's fat if you want, but I expressly didn't.

These numbers obviously have to be taken with huge pinch of salt:

Google shows Wickham at 90kg.

Sakho and Benteke are both 83kg.

Scott Dann is 77kg.

That puts Connor at over a stone heavier than Benteke and Sakho. And two stone heavier than Scott Dann.

I'm not a sports scientist, this is armchair commentary, but I do maintain that they should taper him down a bit.

PS. slightly miffed that at 5'9" I am also 90kg. But I'm nearly 40, not a professional sportsman and I like a full English now and again.

Didn't Gary Issott say something about wanting to beef him up when we signed him?

But like I say, just my opinion!

Do we know as a fact that he was injured? could it be that we just didn't have a place on the bench?

Ok hes too big....well agree on that.... hes also too easily injured and should be got rid of at the earliest opportunity!! Costing the club 60k + a week, out for 2 years comes back plays one game and is injured again....stealing a (very good) living!

To be fair, when saying something is heavier relative to something else, we are obviously referring to density. Otherwise feathers weigh the same as lead.

Yes a player who gets injured is stealing a living. Only a moron would say that. Our manager has said Connor is trying too hard to get back into the first team and therefore getting minor injuries. Whatever job you do is certainly stealing a living and wasting other peopleís air. One big yawn........

I trust that if you ever get a serious injury while doing your job you will quit the next day to prevent your employers having to pay your wages while you recover as to not steal a living.

Absolutely disgusting sentiments which have no place on a bulletin board or at Palace. More suitable for Millwall I think. Vile.
