Weird new interview doesn’t ask Callum Wilson the only question Newcastle fans ask
Checking out the Newcastle United stuff this morning, I was interested to see that there was an interview with Callum Wilson.
I was then intrigued, when I saw that this was an âexclusiveâ interview, not just any regular interview.
The “exclusive” released just three days before this absolutely vital game with Brentford, he must surely answer the Callum Wilson question that all Newcastle United fans have been asking …
I checked several times and couldn’t see anything about it, indeed I couldn’t even see the question asked.
Newcastle United have posted a large number of photos from Saturday’s training session at St James Park, the ‘full’ NUFC squad there, except for those on international duty.
Paul Dummett as a long term injury went missing and Ryan Fraser who retired from the Scotland squad with a calf problem.
However, the rest of the non-international squad was training, aside fromâ¦ Callum Wilson.
Still, this interview doesn’t ask why the forward was missing from Saturday’s practice photos, an innocent explanation, or a new injuryâ¦?
Fair enough, ask him about all the other usual low-key (uninteresting!) Stuff BUT before Saturday all we care about is that Callum Wilson is on the pitch and in great shape.
With four goals in seven Premier League games this season, further proof that he is absolutely Newcastle’s most important player in this current squad. Without him, who would get / get the goals.
Was this interview conducted about a week ago, before the Saturday session where Callum Wilson could not be seen, or was the newspaper not allowed to ask the question ( and / or to post the answer), because if Wilson is injured again, it makes the interview largely irrelevant, given Wilson’s importance to this NUFC team.
Here are some (less interesting!) Excerpts from Callum Wilson’s interview with the Chronicle:
“The test we did [now Eddie Howe is taking training], the beep test, only lasted six minutes, but it was to assess our level of fitness.
“We are obviously training with a lot more intensity now [than under Steve Bruce].
âTo play a certain style of play you have to face the demands of this training and we want to play attacking football. There will be a lot more pressure on the ball and we will be higher up the pitch. You have to train this way (intensely) and in order to train this way you have to improve your physical condition.
âFor us, we had a style of play where we didn’t have a lot of the ball and we sat down more. So you get to a certain level of fitness. All of a sudden, if you don’t work on it week after week, day after day, you’re going to drop a little bit.
âFor us now is the right time to get more high speed runs in our legs and more intensity in our legs. Hopefully this will be of great use to us when the matches start to unfold quickly. “
