Callum Wilson


Recommended Posts

If he can score as many as he does for us feeding on scraps, I'm shocked he's not been picked up by one of the top sides. Even as a rotated striker or sub he'd flourish with more chances.

I haven't read the comments but a player like Wilson just needs to keep fit so probably eases off a lot in training. When it comes to match day it's 100% and risks injury whereas that just doesn't show in training as he knows his body better than coaching staff.

It's probably a combination of his injury record and his age. Still amazed someone persuaded Mike Ashley to part with £20m for him. Can only assume it was PIF as it looked like the takeover was going to go through around then.

They used to say that about Lee Clark as well. Fabulous finisher on the training ground. Some people just thrive on the big game.

When you actually look back at his scoring record in the prem it doesn't really stand out and that was in a more attacking Bournemouth side. It's strange.

Defo don’t hear it much, but I’ve played with a few lads who were gash in training but really good in competitive matches. Reverse Shola I guess. Some people need the the competitive element to perform at their best

Yeah I really don’t understand what happened at Bournemouth. I wasn’t at all bothered when we signed him, he’s never stuck out as a goal scorer

I was about to say, he wasn't this good at Bournemouth like as I recall.  Not particularly close either imo.  Injuries always a problem with him but certain players just arrive a club and click, I'd say he's one of them myself.

His goal record for Bournemouth was around one in three, over a significant number of games. I'd say that's pretty indicative of a reliable goal scorer, and a very solid return for an average to poor premier league team and with a season that included a relegation.
