Mike Williamson is the type of player we’d like to see more of at the Newcastle club.
Mike Williamson – it’s unbelievable
First of all, and the most important thing is that Mike looks like a very good player, who can hold his own in the Premiership. And also, this boy always comes over as so mature, and as soon as he arrived on Tyneside, all he wanted to do was to play as many games as possible for Newcastle , to help them win promotion.
Well, Mike has done all of that, and he is now the first choice alongside Fabricio Coloccini in central defense, although Steven Taylor will come back next season and will want to be playing in that back-line too.
Mike has already appeared 14 times in the Newcastle side, since he arrived from Portsmouth in late January, and he’s good in the air and looks like a very solid defender, and a complete bargain at £1M.
Williamson told the local Evening Chronicle today about joining the famous Newcastle club:
“It’s unbelievable.” “It’s been such a turnaround for me personally.” “It’s just brilliant, and the boys are enjoying it now.”
“We want to finish the job in style, and it will mean so much to play against Ipswich in front of a big crowd like that.”
“It’s been a good end to the season, and the hard work starts again in pre-season.” “It’s a class dressing room.”
“But everybody knows that you can’t take anything for granted.”
Newcastle need to avoid defeat on Saturday and it will be the first time since the 1906-1907 season, when Newcastle won the top league in England, that they have remained undefeated at home in a season – yet another record for this unbelievable season.
We now have 7 straight wins and it would be great if we can win the last two games to end the season with 9 wins in a row, and 104 points in the league, and we’ll then win it by at least 9 points from WBA .
Also, it’s a good test and good practice of going into every game and trying to win it, which has to stand us in good stead for next season.
“It was a tough game at Plymouth.” “They were scrapping for their lives – we knew they would give us a tough game.”
“Harps made a couple of good saves, and Andy Carroll did what he’s been doing all season.” “We played really well as a team.”
“The boys have been great together, home and away – the performances have been unbelievable.” “There’s a great team ethic and we just want to continue that in the last two games.”
As we said earlier we look forward to more players like Mike joining the club in the summer – and we think 4 good players is what we need.
Fullback, central midfield, striker and winger are the four positions we think Chris will strengthen in the summer – we cannot wait.
