Callum Wilson reacts after co-presenter tips Wolves for relegation

Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson says the Premier League is getting better and better, with Wolves looking set for a relegation battle.

Wolves currently sit in 19th place in the table after a really poor start.

Wanderers have won just two games so far, and scored only five goals.

Bruno Lage was sacked a few weeks ago, and the board have now put their faith in Steve Davis after rejections by Julen Lopetegui and Mick Beale.

Everything is pointing towards a relegation battle for Wolves.

The inability to score goals is ultimately the biggest issue. But Wolves are now also struggling defensively, and there does appear to be a big lack of fight and belief.

On the Footballer’s Football podcast, talk turned to who will be involved in a relegation battle come the end of the season.

Rickie Haywood-Williams stated Nottingham Forest and Leeds United will go down, and also said he was not convinced by Leicester City, before saying he could not see past Wolves.

Not happy with his choices, Wilson then joked: “It’s a harsh day today, he’s gone straight in for the two Midlands clubs. I am a fellow Midlander so get them out of there!

“Hearing those teams, they are good teams. The Premier League is getting better and better and the bottom half of the league, I don’t even know who’s down there. It’s just focus on yourself. But those teams are good teams with good squads!”

Wolves have a good squad, but no longer a good culture

Wolves do fall into the category of being a good team and having a good squad.

But that is not enough.

It is important for good squads to also include good characters and leaders, and Wolves got rid of most of theirs in the summer.

On paper, Wanderers probably have one of the most talented groups of players of all the non-Big Six Premier League clubs.

But it is clear that they’re struggling because too many leaders left. As a result, it is now going to be very difficult pulling away from a relegation battle this season
