We are hoping that 6’4″ Mike Williamson can start on Monday afternoon at Bolton.
Mike Williamson – can make huge difference at Bolton
Mike will not really be match fit, but we always remember that when he made his debut for Newcastle in January of last year, against Crystal Palace at St. James’ Park, he hadn’t played for a long time after arriving from Portsmouth.
But he gave a flawless exhibition of center-back play, and was easily the best player on the field that night in Newcastle’s 2-0 victory.
If Mike can do the same thing at the Reebok Stadium on Monday afternoon, then he will have made a big and immediate contribution to the side, because the likelihood is that Newcastle will win the game.
And Mike is certainly anxious to return to the side:
“I’ve had a long time out, and it’s just exciting to get back on the pitch,” “I’m looking forward to getting back involved in the first team.”
“It has been frustrating personally.” “I’ve had a lot of time in the gym on my own working hard.”
“It’s been nice on the other hand to watch the lads do so well, and they’ve deserved all the plaudits they’ve had so far.”
“It’s been good to see the lads do so well,” “It’s nice to look at the table and see Newcastle United where they are.”
“It’s a breath of fresh air for a lot of the supporters.” “It’s been nice for the lads.”
“They’ve worked extremely hard on and off the field to get to that position.”
Normally with Bolton second bottom of the league and having a terrible home record this season, a Newcastle win would be a strong expectation.
But Newcastle are having their own problems at the moment, with 6 games without a win and only 2 points.
But the lads have to turn this around at some time, and Monday afternoon seems as good a time as any to do just that.
We are big fans of Mike Williamson and have a lot of faith in this lad’s footballing ability, and we believe Mike can have a big influence in helping Newcastle to their first win in seven games at the Reebok on Monday.
Howay The Lads!!
