He hasn't tested positive, but unless he's been tested, how does anyone know?

If he'd had it since September then it would explain why he was blowing out his backside after 5 mins every game.

I think he self-isolated from his team mates on the pitch a few times during the season too!  :P ouch (sorry)

With his chest control he's screwed.

Yes please. Not good enough for the PL anymore. We need a new front 3 if we go up but i think Bilic loves HRK so can see him staying.

HRK deserves his chance in the top league.  Without his goals this season we would have been struggling to keep up with the top 3.

A few games apart, I think he's been very disappointing and definitely not up to Prem League should we go up.

HRK has already had a few seasons in the PL and not done well. I'd like to see him move on but i think he will stay.

Before this season I'd certainly agree.

But I think Bilic has changed him for the better. This season he's been incredible at times, maybe he's been coached differently, who knows? But he's definitely better. Even without his goals there's something clicked with his game in terms of decision making. I'd give him a chance if we go up.

On to Austin, yes I would sell in the summer if possible. I imagine he's on big money and is only getting older.

Just a pity to make this public now. Something of a demotivating factor for Austin to perform for the rest of the season.

Definitely hasn’t lived up to expectations but has scored some important goals for us this season

He always comes across to me as someone who is full of his own self importance.
If we go up I would let him go. We will have to take a bit of a hit on him I would expect, but so be it.

I thought his signing was the iceing on the cake in  getting us promoted back to the prem. I still think he's a good forward but one who hasn't found his feet 100% at the club but wouldn't stop his move.

Comes across to me as someone who is confident and outgoing. Does a lot for charity and seems to be a proper family man. Unfortunately I think we bought him as his legs were starting to go. No doubting his ability as his record demonstrates, and I will always be thankful to him for turning the bluenose game around at St Andrews....a wonderful performance, but sadly his last good one.

I agree with you about letting him go and taking the hit though.......

I think I saw something from a not very reliable site about Austin talking up a move to Scotland one day so I don't think this is a coincidence it is just a question of how much it will cost us to unload him.  Rangers would be about right could get a couple of years in the SPL. This is as much about the player wanting to move on as it is the club wanting to move him on.

Never looked fully fit to me, maybe he likes the pies and the pints a bit too much, we could have a lot worse on the bench even in the prem, but if we can do a deal that suits all then happy to see him go

I sort of like him he's always looking to score and will shoot at any opportunity unlike that in a striker that bit of selfishness.
He's scored some important goals for us this season,give us a good return by  end of season and when we get promoted let him go to bonnie Scotland and join whoever, if we get 2 million for him he will have been worth it.

Thought the half volley against blues was his best in Albion shirt but think he definitely isn't match fit or like lambert his career will fall of cliff while being in stripes.

The system we play just doesn't suit him.  I still think he is the most natural goalscorer this club has had for quite some time but it just hasn't quite worked out for him here.

Yep, he's just not mobile/fit enough to slot in and do a similar job to HRK for any length of time, it's not his game. Obviously there are plenty who are very grudging to give HRK any credit but he's been very important in our current line-up/system.
