Hasn't played in a season and a half. Too many injuries at this point to have not taken their toll. Wont ever make a premiership striker now. Sad but true.

EFA

Yes, he hasn't played for a long time, even when you consider the nature of the injury sustained. But who knows how he is going to be when he makes his return. Your opinion is fine, but to state it as fact when it is nothing more than speculation, is just wrong.

I hope he makes it back and goes on to have a good quality career, hopefully with us. But I don't know that will happen, much like you don't know for certain he won't.

Do you remember Glenn Murray doing his cruciate at the age of 29 and missing nine months, yet bagging twelve goals this season?

I'm beginning to think that Stan has a limited footballing knowledge....not a bad thing, but he does have a fairly blinkered view towards things.

I don't agree with that. The first half of the season proved we don't need any strikers.

The reason Vardy went for a million is more than one club wanted him, several did. Was this the case with Sorloth?
I read somewhere that he was very sought after on account of ticking lots of boxes on the metrics that the scouts use, and us getting him was considered something of a coup. Sorry no link because it's so long ago, but it was in the media after the window shut.

Illogical. Sako has basically been injured since we signed him, yet managed to get the most goals per minutes on the pitch in our squad.

Sako played 20 Premier League games his first season with us, 7 in the second, and 16 in his third (this season), with only 3 goals this season.

Just giving some stats, but "Most goals per minutes on the pitch" for him makes it sound a lot nicer than it actually was due to the small amount of minutes he played.

It'll be interesting to see Sorloth with a pre-season under his belt. From his brief appearance he looks big strong and runs about which we are not use to but looks off the pace to play up top on his own. Wickham is completely unknown he may come back as before but a lot of players after such lay offs never make the same standard. I like him so hope he does.

Most of his goals this season just gone were in the cup. He scored 3 on the Premier league. One was a lucky ricochet off his shin, one was poor keeping and one was a very good strike.

I don't know how anyone can form a judgement on Sorloth given the fact we've only seen him a few times, but I think he looks like he has plenty of potential.

This. He had three games and in those, he played fairly well. Will be nice to see him after a pre-season, I think.

Good point, but up to the people paying his wages to decide if its a risk or not

I would assume that Sorloth is seen as a squad player and if he is happy with that, then i dont see any issues.

We've given plenty of other players much more time (or more rope to hang themselves) than Sorloth who's hardly featured yet in what was mostly a desperate 2nd half of the season.

I don't know if he's good enough. I really have no idea. Can't see how anyone on here could yet say otherwise.

Desperate 2nd half of the season?

19 games 26 points is desperate? Had we had a similar 1st half then 52 points would have had us just failing to qualify for Europe!
