Muscle injuries seem to be the norm for Geordie players. Jonjo Shelvey spent a healthy portion of last season on the sidelines due to muscular problems. Isaac Hayden, too, has suffered some problems in his legs.

Last season was a fairly strange campaign for a number of reasons.

When a raft of players training the same way week in, week out for a whole year suffer similar problems, it is hard to argue the latter.

Here is how some Newcastle fans reacted to the Wilson news…
