The day that Eddie Howe signed Callum Wilson was one of the best bits of business he has done. We got rid of Lewis Grabban for £3m and got Wilson for £2.5m. An excess of £500,000, enough to cover the cost of his strike partner Yann Kermorgant.
This time last year (yes he has only been with us just over a year, seems so much longer) we were asking ourselves ‘CALLUM WILSON: Is he worth more than £2m?’. We suggested if Eddie Howe could work his magic we could have a 30 goals a season striker worth a lot more than what we paid for him. One season in the Championship and he proved he was worth every penny. Three games in the Premier League and he has proved he has got what it takes to be a success at the next level.
His hat-trick against West Ham will kick-start his confidence and show him that he can compete at this level. To celebrate his 3-goal haul at the Boleyn Ground we have put together our very own tribute in the shape of a simple infographic. What can you do with it? You decide. Put it on your desktop, put it on your phone, print it out and put it on your wall. Make your own mug, do whatever you want to do. We wanted to do this so we did. Enjoy
