Ah, I wasn't expressing an opinion as to wether he is, or isn't up to much. Rather I was countering the argument there might only be two reasons why a player would be used as an impact sub.

As you were.

He's got a low average minutes because lots of managers have used him as an impact off the bench.

And why do they use him as an impact player...
... He's a luxury player that doesn't work enough to deserve a full game or he's never fit.

Wingers are the obvious subs. Throw them on if you're winning. Swap them for fresh legs even if you're not. They get loads of 5 minutes here and there.

Noone's career average? 58.
Buckley? 58.

It's pointless.

As for Wildschut this year, it depends... If Parky picks him. Sammy the only winger who has nailed down a starting position since Parky can in. The rest have been in and out. So I reckon he'll end up nearer to 50 than 80, as will Noone and Buckley. It doesn't mean any of them are unfit, lazy, unfancied or (weirdly) need to be "allocated" a sub.
