If he had been hacked by a Celtic fan they would have deleted the Scotland picture too.

It is strange and appears petulant. Suggests he's fallen out with Bilic or someone else at the club to me and could well be another player to go out before the window closes.


No tears will be shed, particularly if we get back a large chunk of the money we paid for him.

Hadn't really got any interest in the story but my curiosity got the better of me, so i've had a look on there and there are only 6 pictured, the latest of which is from early July, with Burke in his Albion training gear saying great to be back.

Am I missing something? He has just deleted most of his pictures 😂😂. Total non story. Bet he plays tomorrow.

I still think he could turn out to be a very useful player, he had a decent half season at Celtic, so let's give him a chance on the pitch, sod twitter and all that shizzle

I was beside myself with panic when I read he'd deleted Albion photos from his Instagram.

Good to see he's put one back up, phew.

I'll be able to sleep easy ahead of our first game tomorrow now.

In my experience rest before beers is as vastly under rated as games after beers are vastly over rated.

It seems his Instagram has been hacked before if you look at the screenshot he uploaded to Twitter a while ago.

Probably hacked if you think about it.

It's pretty obvious it didn't end well at Celtic with Lennon, Dowling et al so the last thing he'd do is go back there.
That said, I do wonder if he'll be used much this season - he's been with us under 4 different managers now and all have used him sparingly.

Get rid asap.

Footballer does something on social media we therefore can deduce ….. not very much. There is very little chance of us seeing any of the fee back unless he starts playing some games somewhere for someone and he is here until 2022. If Bilic can get a tune out of him that would be an unexpected bonus.

From his cameo today he could hit cow backside with Banjo. So no tune there imo.

Was invisible and irrelevant when he cam on today but I suppose he didn’t really get a chance to get in behind them. I still believe there is hope for the lad

Loan to league one an option? Give him 6 months at a Sunderland/pompy etc. Got potential but needs to play

I really think it is important that we make this happen, although I doubt it at the moment. A loan move to Scotland or even abroad is also possible.

Burke is now 6th choice winger and 4th choice striker. We need to be proactive in boosting his career prospects or his value. No point him rotting.

Ask Forest to have him back, might be the tonic / shock he needs

Haven't seen anything over the last month that has made me feel this guy can make an impact although I have a feeling there is a few more appearances to come as Bilic tests out what he is looking for. Mentioned in another thread he is not a striker but I truthfully do not see where he fits in, no problem with a loan.

Oliver Burke has been, without doubt, a footballing conundrum, but we are the ones having to solve it and, personally, I have no clue  :-X

I think it's too early to say he's not a striker. There are different types of striker, he has undoubtedly got pace and physical stature. He didn't have much of a look-in on Saturday after he came on ...though he did have the sense to take the ball into the corner towards the end of the game.
Remains to be seen how much of a look-in he gets. There's a lot of competition now and he's going to have to impress day in day out in training and in whatever game time he gets.

2 appearances this season and I am sure I can count the times he touched the ball on one hand. Not sure what he offers the team. He defiantly isn't a centre forward.

The 3 deadline day signings will have killed his chances off for me this season. He will be one of the ones who doesn't make the 18

I hate to say it and hope to be proved wrong but he's no idea hats going on around him and has o application whatsoever.
I know its hard to come on as a sub and get involved straight away but the signs are not good.

Managers, Head Coaches have tried him in forward and midfield roles without finding his best position, as a last resort, I wonder if anyone’s thought about a defensive role?

Has all the tools to be a world-class winger in Rugby. 6ft2, 14st, greased lightening. Get him with ball in hand and he’d be unstoppable. Ball at his feet though? Bag of w*nk.

In all seriousness, I think we’ve all seen enough to know what we are working with. All the physical tools, none of the technical or tactical quality.

Doesn’t have a first touch. No spatial awareness. Doesn’t know where to run, when to run, what is a useful run, a useless run, etc, etc. He hasn’t developed under the multiple coaches he has had and that points to him being unable to learn. He’s not a footballer.

If you saw him for 5 mins you’d think he could be a world beater but having seen him make 20+ sub appearances, it’s clear he isn’t up to it.

Hopefully the bloke who sanctioned a £15m punt (Pulis? Williams?) on the rawest of players is long gone. Would imagine once Slaven gets some of the new boys up to speed Burke will be back playing u23s with a view to moving him on permanently?

Everything that's wrong about English football. Seems if you are big and have plenty of pace you have more chance of making it as opposed to the more technical side. Seems Burke is a prime example.

Personally Id swap him for Sam Johnstone for a couple of games and see how he gets  on
