Mike Williamson has given another interview today, and this players comes over looking like a leader.
Mike Williamson – likely to become a leader at Newcastle
Williamson told the Evening Chronicle today:
“It’s been a while. I’ve been training hard, but you can’t really replicate first-team football, and I’m just glad to be here now, and I’ll try to cement my position.”
“It’s difficult when you’re used to playing week-in, week-out, and then you go to being a bit-part player.”
“It’s hard, but you’ve got to be steeled mentally, and just get on with it. That’s the only way to do it and I’ve got the first one out of the way.”
“I’ve only played a handful of reserve-team games over the last few months, so I’m just enjoying playing first-team football again.”
“I’m looking forward to it and I’m working hard and taking every day as it comes.” “I’m going to work as hard as I possibly can, and keep going.”
“I’m enjoying first-team football, and long may it continue.”
Meanwhile, Williamson is confident that the Magpies can get a second win in seven days, this time against Leicester City, Nigel Pearson’s side, and that would be great!
“They’ve got a good base. They did really well to establish themselves early doors.”“They’ve got some good players, and they’re hard to break down.”
“It’s going to be another test, but it’s down to us.” “If we can play our football, I don’t think we’ll have a problem.”
What we need this afternoon ios for Mike and Coloccini to close the gates at the back and put ina solid performance.
We half expect the full backs this afternoon to be Tamas Kadar on the right and Patrick van Aanholt on the left, although Ryan Taylor may grab one od those full-back spots.
Like a lot of games this season, we have to hope our defense shuts the back door, and with the extra creativity introduced by Wayne Routledge on the right wing, we hope we can score a few goals.
It will be tough game this afternoon, but our lads will be expecting nothing less.
