Agreed. Wickham and Benteke are players that our club has sunk a lot of money in the form of fees and wages into. Given that massive losses will accrue if we sell them, there's a strong argument for persevering if they look like they can remain fit.

Kind of backs up my point.

For the first 13 months he was out injured, unable to do much of anything.

Right now he is still not completing full weekly training sessions without picking up a muscle injury here and there, so I doubt Wickham isn't doing what Roy wants or has been frozen out. Unless it is him ignoring medical advice and getting injured, in which case, Roy is clearly spot on.

The Incentive is there to play and impress especially next season for both Wickham and Benteke to either earn another contract with us or alternatively with another club.

I don't think it would be right to try to move either on at this stage we will see how they both perform.

How does Roy play a player that has minor injuries?

How is a player with minor injuries fit?

He was a good player at 23. That has missed the best part of 3 years of key development time. If he is no better at 26, if not worse because of his injury, than he was at 23 (which is likely imo), then is even still good enough, regardless of his fitness?

First thing he needs to do is get through regular training sessions week in week out, then get a full pre season without injuries under his belt. Until then, he's a risk and an injury waiting to happen, unfortunately for us and him.

I’ll call it now. There’s no way in the world Wickham gets another contract here. They’ll move heaven & Earth to offload him in the summer!

We will wait and see what happens but probably unlikely that clubs will come in and agree to match his wages without seeing him back in competitive action performing at a good level.

Can't see us settling his contract now after the patience we have shown.

Connor has been fit and ready to play but Roy won’t play him. Played well enough against spurs on his return .Would be better off for coming on as a sub , but Roy doesn’t do them.

As for injuries waiting to happen when it suits Roy he re- engages them , eg Bakory ( and then doesn’t give the guy a chance )

Could he go out on loan? Or could the return of Bats and Ayew to their clubs free up space for CW in the matchday squad?

Definitely see him going out on loan. Bats & Ayew will be replaced with Players that Roy wants & they’ll be ahead of him in the pecking order.
