Callum Wilson - New Number 9


Recommended Posts

Wilson potentially the best because he's the only one likely to stick around long enough, just then your hoping he can keep scoring.

 

Would have loved to see how Remy would have turned out should he have signed for us that summer 2013, or even in the January instead of going to QPR. Despite being quality, never got impression his heart was in the season he was on loan, and probably rings true as he ended up at Chelsea.

 

Demba Ba surely had the greatest potential to be a legend since Shearer, 29 goals in 54, but only a season and half. Remember loads of talk from his agent behind scenes, back then it was obvious he was after a pay cheque move, even more obvious now looking at him touring China and Turkey since Chelsea. Wish we could have kept Ba! Was livid at the club back then for letting him go, same with Debuchy and Cabaye.

 

1) Ba

2) Remy

3) Wilson

 

give it a year and hopefully by end of 21/22 Wilson without question.

Ba

Wilson

Remy

 

Think I'd prefer Wilson over Remy as Wilson's play often involves the lesser players around him. Remy was in a team of some.better quality player so he had much better supply and support.

Where would we rank him amongst Ba and Remy?

 

Better than Loic for me, better attitude and more likeable. Seems to enjoy himself. Demba on top, of course.

 

Remy was such a weird player. Had so much ability but just seems to have been forgotten as a PL player, not even sure if he achieved that much in France considering how highly regarded he was at one point. I never really trusted him after he turned us down to go to QPR, and think that will always colour my view of him. Just seemed to lack any real ambition.

Nobody has mentioned playing Cisse off the right, with Hatem on the bench, and getting Willo to loft it forward as aimlessly as he can?

 

:pardsgrin:

 

 

We deserve a Klopp/Pep like era. Allardyce, JFK, Roeder, Pardew, Bruce etc, we're overdue  :mike:

So weird he chose QPR given he genuinely had a team full of French lads who could help him settle, not saying they would have all been mates mind you. Feel like I read they heavily recruited him too. He probably was sold the same pitch - sign for QPR or Newcastle with the view that you will leave within a year or two to a bigger club. So he chose the money and London over Newcastle.

Me & my son were talking about this yesterday. I definitely recall reading, at the time, that he'd agreed to join us. Redknapp then went to France to try and change his mind and get him to sign for QPR. He was, apparently, offered 10k, 20k, then 30k more, all of which he declined, before being offered double what we were offering him, supposedly 80k, and a get out of jail free card, free to leave if they got relegated.

Didn't really follow his career once he left England, but doesn't seem to have pulled up any trees. He was unlucky as far as the national team I suppose, in that they had outstanding strikers for France so he never really got much of a look in.
