He still quite young, isn't he ? I know it's a gamble with his fitness, but given his age, I think he is probably just about worth another punt, because he has looked good for us at times.

Either

The clubs doctors are confident of a return to fitness

Or

Confident of patching him up to get a few games. With age on his side there’s some resale or even loan value in him

Does Wickham signing mean our transfer business for the summer has been completed early?

I am genuinely surprised at this as I thought RH was not a fan.

I am also reasonably sure SP would have ensured there is some protection for the club if he was to get a long term injury again.

I think we all want to see him have a run in the side and show us what he can do on a regular basis.

No we're just waiting for Sako to sign then we're done.

The club must have a reasonable expectation that he'll be able to stay healthy enough to contribute or it's unlikely they would have given him a new contract. So it's basically the opinion of doctors, physios and professional sports science teams, who monitor the player on a daily basis vs. random commentators on an Internet message board. Hmmm.

People are saying this is a waste of money, but who should we be looking to replace Wickham with? Let's not forget that Sorloth reportedly cost in excess of £8 million and that's for a completely unproven striker. It's not like we can just cut Wickham loose, replace him with Mitrovic for £30+ million and it's not going to have any bearing on our financial situation.

Sorloth only cost £8m precisely because these so-called professionals don't really know what they're doing.

His likelihood of playing time this year was limited once Bats arrived and that would have given him the time to continue his long term rehab. If fit, he is perfectly capable as one of a selection of three or so strikers next season.

Yep

We know that he can be effective but the timings of his injury recoveries verses the transfer windows meant that he was up against Agew, Bats and then Benteke for game time, plus we needed points.
Worth another go IMHO.
