Wilson leading the way

You can't get away with speaking about AFC Bournemouth and not mention Callum Wilson. Even on summing up the first home win for the Cherries in Match of the Day, Alan Shearer and Danny Murphy had to give special mention to Callum's skill and how he needs to be kept fit to keep the Cherries' challenge going strong.

Too soon for an England call up? Eddie Howe doesn't think it is.
It is hard to disagree with them. For while we have yet to see what Glenn Murray can really do for the team, Callum Wilson is undeniably a striker that virtually any team in the Premier League would like to have on their books. His skill to spin his man and gain that advantage over central defenders is going to cause problems for better players than Younes Kaboul during the course of this season, and Wilson's powerful finish past Pantilimon showed that he is now in devastating form when he has a sight of goal.

Having scored five goals already in seven games, the influence of Wilson's fire power can't be denied. It is a big part in what will be needed to keep the Cherries in this league and the 20 goal a season mark is perhaps only the first target for him now having made such a promising start. His strength and initial pace over the first 10 yards is as good as any striker in the league and if he can up his on target ratio we could see a really special season from him. UTCIAD!
