Hammers bogeyman signs for Magpies

Newcastle United have signed England striker Callum Wilson on a four-year-deal from Bournemouth for around £20m.

The 28-year-old, who has four England caps, made 187 appearances for the Cherries and scored 67 goals.

The news will not be welcomed by David Moyes or West Ham fans as Wilson loves to score against the Hammers and will be registered in time to play.

He will be odds on to start against us on Saturday on the first day of the 2020/2021 Premier League.

The forward has scored seven goals in eight appearances against West Ham.

It has been reported that Wilson was demanding £75,000 per week personal terms. The striker has a horrendous injury record.

Since the start of the 2015/16 campaign, the Bournemouth striker has missed 498 days of football through injury, with two of those spells on the sidelines being due to cruciate ligament ruptures.

Wilson’s record wasn’t exactly breathtaking last season either, with only nine goals to his name in 39 games for the Cherries

  1. Of course he’ll score, but then again I’d score against us if we defend the way we did against Bournemouth. We need to seriously consider playing a back 5 for the first 8 games of the season, considering our fixtures. Either that or have Dec drop in between Diop and Oggy when defending.

    I appreciate Moyes is a cautious investor in players, and of course, I’d rather he get our signings right rather than rush through more future deadwood, but we need to move sooner rather than later to get at least one defender in, or it won’t just be Wilson scoring against us!

  2. Sounds like someone we usually sign, although he’s played more than Wilshire, Ried ( remember him), all on long term contracts with bigger wages.
    Maybe someone from out medical team has moved there.

  3. They’re welcome to him – although hopefully he doesn’t play at the weekend as he likes scoring against us, but as a long term signing I’m pleased we never landed him. Another sick note is not what we need. Maybe the Geordies will take Wilshere off our hands too 🙂
