i wonder if his issues with running are to do with his hamstrings ?

He could make a sloth look like Usain Bolt both in terms of speed and effort.

Iím not sure heíd pass a fitness test.  He seems to take ages to get match fit and even then he seems very one paced.

There is talent there that's not in question. But Dean has been more than accomodating to him and has given him enough chances to make the move permanent. If it was a cut price fee then maybe but atm nowhere near the £30-40 million that shower of shite will be asking for him.

It was worth a shot, he could have been good, maybe he still will be, just not for us.
  It's the inconsistency that stops him becoming the top player he can be, I think he lacks confidence, and has other issues.
 Dean Smith has definitely given him enough chances, time to say goodbye. If he was on a free transfer, maybe, but it's a no from me.

Wouldnít even take him on a free, he earns way too much given how little he contributes.

I think there's something wrong behind the scenes. But, even so, there's no way I'd consider signing him or even be interested in another loan.

Given how well we were playing earlier in the season with him on form, we can see what type of player we desperately need. We can't go with someone who will only fulfil that role half a dozen times a season if we're lucky.

There has to be something still wrong with him because if he is actually fit and this is his level of form itís not a question of who is he now going to play for, itís a question about whether heís finished in the game.

Felt a bit sorry for him when camera switched to him in the stand, hands on head. His career very much in free fall. Kind of player that without a huge transformation you wouldn't be surprised to see retiring at the end of his Chelsea contract. RLC, who we were also linked to last summer, seems to have been a total flop at Fulham too.

He looked gutted at his own performance last night, as others have said he looks in freefall.

He had the chance to re-build his career with us and he knows that he has blown it, which is a shame for him as he seemed to get on well with Jack!!! - I am sure that he will get another loan deal somewhere else next season

This.

I think there was a realisation as the camera panned over to him, that he had a great chance to progress with us, but that chance has gone.

Now is the time to give Chucks some valuable game time at Palace.

His time with us is just a reflection of his career as a whole. Mostly average mixed with the odd very good game balanced by the odd completely useless game.

The completely useless games far outweigh the average and good ones.
