I think if hooper gets another contract will determine on Bruce’s trust in him 

 

I honestly can’t see with the games remaining there’s enough time for hooper to get back to full fitness and then get match fit and then on form for him to warrant a new contract 

 

Even if he doesn’t impress or have an impact this year and Bruce offers him another contract I’d be happy to be hopeful we can get him back to his best because he’s probably our best player when fit and on form or a very hard case to be

We won’t see anything of Hooper before the international break

More than likely.

 

However we are thin on the ground striker wise, with only Winnall and Nuhiu fit. Reckon if it stays that way come Saturday, he'll be on the bench.

 

Wouldn't surprise me if Hooper is on the bench tomorrow either.

Howson saying that Bruce told him Hooper won’t be involved in the U23 match today. Really hope he isn’t bloody injured again. Would have been nice if Howson actually asked why he won’t be involved.

He’ll be gone in the summer - sadly a crock now and will never be reliable from a fitness perspective.

 

..players who struggle to play 15-20 games a season won’t get us up

I can't see Hooper being involved with the first team squad this season ... its a write off again ..

 

The only thing i could see happening is a chance for him to prove his fitness over the summer to earn a contract .. or possibly a short term 6 month contract pay as you play or prove yourself for another 6 months or a year ...

 

We should not be relying on him though and if other more worthwhile and reliable options come up then we need to look at them instead

He looked well short in previous under 23 game, team improved in second half when Damba was on as replacement. This is not surprising because he has not had many games in last couple of years will take a while for him to get up to speed.

Won’t be involved with u23s today as he’ll be in the squad for Blackburn.

I reckon he’s been pulled onto bench for Saturdays game

 

No messing now - get him in, get him 20 mins on end of games and he’s extra firepower for last ride of the season

Howson did ask why he isn’t playing today but the answer would basically be giving away our team for Blackburn.

he looked miles off for u23s ,remember hooper has had many failed comebacks since he went off at forest in December 2017 ,2-3 weeks of training and 45mins for u23s and he probably had another setback ,there is no way he will be on bench on Saturday ,and surely 45 mins last week in u23s aint wore him out. sadly we have seen last of him it looks. think bruce needs to do a injury update on everyone at his press conference this week. so many players seem to have just disappeared remember onamah whats happened with him? van aken? unreal that  we paid 4million for him.

Not a chance.

 

But I don’t understand why Howson didn’t ask the obvious question, “Why aren’t you playing?”.

 

If Howson worked for the Washington Post Richard Nixon would still be President.

Surely the best way to get back to fitness is to play a part in the U23 games?

I reckon he did ask, and he's injured again.

 

Doom will be saving it for an 'exclusive' on Friday evening.

Sometimes the answer is just the most obvious one. Why didn’t he ask? Well, he did.

When did you last see a 'pay as you play' deal?

 

It's just not a thing in this day and age when so much money is at stake and players/agents have all the power.
