Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have waxed lyrical over forward Connor Wickham after footage emerged of the 27-year-old playing for the club’s Under-23 side.
The striker has been out through injury, with numerous issues having a major impact on his Palace career. He’s made just 50 appearances for the club in all competitions since his £9m switch to Selhurst Park, scoring 11 times.
Wickham’s moment of magic
Wickham produced a brilliant piece of skill during the 2-1 defeat to Sunderland on Tuesday, which caught the eyes of multiple Palace supporters.
The Englishman controlled a goal kick on his chest in his own half, muscled off a defender before hitting an inch-perfect curved pass on the half volley into the path of a teammate out on the right flank.
Will Connor Wickham ever play for Palace again?
Palace fans react
This is what these supporters had to say, with one describing the clip as ‘ridiculous’.
“That is naughty”
“This is actually ridiculous”
“That’s enough for Parish to give him a one year extension”
“I’m telling you now Connor Wickham would have been our all time top goalscorer without injuries”
“A fully fit Connor Wickham over Benteke all day. Don’t @ me. #CPFC”
