Sounds as if he looked sharp and put a shift in having come on for the second half. SWFC under the cosh in first half but much better in second. So maybe give him some time before coming to conclusions either way.

Might mate follows Wednesday home and away. Says he just doesn't look match fit/sharp but signs of a good player still there. Said biggest surprise is his inability to get off the ground. Reckons he looks like he needs a lot of matches to get back on track - not sure they can afford him that time. Especially as they have another injury-prone forward - Stephen Fletcher on £40k a week

I was chatting to a football player/coach recently about Wickham.

He said, in his experience, that players need at least 10 matches to approach match fitness after a long injury. He felt small cameos don’t help enough and that it was the best decision for Wickham’s sake that he went out on loan.

It looks like Wickham has tried to get fit with training and gym work. But his leg injuries have meant he’s over compensated by building up a very muscular body. Upper body strength is important, but maybe he’s now too heavy in that area and he would be more nimble if he got a bit leaner?

We have seen this over and over with players returning from cruciate injuries, even if they've only been out nine months to a year. Glenn Murray, Scott Dann, score of players at other clubs. I would say they need more like half a season playing regularly to get back to near their best.

Muscles canbe too strong for their joints leading to more injury, i’ve been told.

The number of minutes he has played so far seems positive in terms of his long term rehabilitation.

Lets hope this is similar to Glenn's loan to Reading (although we didnt really get to benefit unfortunately due to Pardew)

A couple of levels below was generous.

We’re pushing for the top half in the best league in the world. They’re one of the most out of form teams in the championship. What’s that the 10th strongest league in Europe at a push? Should have said 10 levels.

Wanting Wickham to start ahead of Benteke? Yeah real smart. Clueless ****.

Came on at half-time in a 5-0 defeat to Brentford.

Monk seems to be making a lot of half-time subs at the moment - I think the previous league game he'd used all three by half time. Also publically criticising his players in the post match interview today. Seems like he's completely lost control.

I rated Wickham but his injuries and lack of game time are taking their toll, or have taken their toll.

Will we ever get the Wickham back that scored in the semi-final versus Watford?

For that to happen, he needs to drop down another division, perhaps, but I then think he will just rot away and never recover.

Another Championship loan could be good, but it will be lower league because he isn't good enough now for a top-half team.

I cannot agree with that
He has made 2 significant contributions in the last 2 matches that have led to 6 points
He has looked a decent player

Bit blinkered that. The way he's playing currently has been quite instrumental in our upturn in results the last few weeks.
Admittedly I was all for jettisoning him down the tunnel in the fifteen minutes before he laid on that reverse pass to Ayew for the winner against the weed. But his contributions have been decent enough.
