Williamson – We’re Going To Give Everything To Get Results

Mike Williamson has taken a bit of stick lately for his performances at the heart of the Newcastle defense.

Mike Williamson – hoping for European Qualification

And it was a mistake by Mike after 23 minutes of the Sunderland game that gave them a penalty last Sunday, that Nicklas Bendtner easily converted.

But Alan Pardew praised the attitude of the defender after the game, and the lad has already played 62 times for Newcastle but with no goals so far, after being signed just over two years ago for £1M from Portsmouth.

Mike came very close to scoring in stoppage time last Sunday afternoon, after Shola Ameobi had equalized for Newcastle, and that would have been some story.

Depending on how Mike and Coloccini perform through the end of the season,  could decide whether Newcastle get into the Europa League next season, and Mike is hoping that’s possible:

“Of course it would a phenomenal feat for me but most of all for the team. Come our summer holidays if we achieve that we can look back, relax and enjoy what we’ve managed to do,”  “Nothing is won yet though – we’ve still got a long way to go.”

“There’s a lot of football to play and we need to start getting those basics right again.”  “We don’t get carried away. We don’t take pictures of the league table or anything like that, we just concentrate on our jobs.”

“The lads aren’t arrogant enough to take our foot off the gas. We’re an honest bunch of lads and we just want to work hard for each other every game. Regardless of which position we’re in, we’re going to go out and give everything to get results.”

“We’re a team, we’re not individuals,”  “We can’t hide the quality we’ve got – we can get goals from anywhere. But those hard-working players still graft and put a shift in and do little things, the basics. Those have paid off over the course of the season.”

Newcastle will  be at the Emirates Stadium next Monday evening against Arsenal, and that will be a tough game, but of course we did win the same fixture last season 1-0, so anything is possible for Newcastle these days.

6’4″ Mike Williamson has a job to do for the side through the end of the season, but we do expect Newcastle to bring in a top center-back in the summer, and hopefully a top full-back too,  to bolster the Newcastle defense.

    You know your in the shit when Willo says this!

    It’s almost as bad as a headline saying ‘Ameobi promises goals, goals, goals’ or ‘perch states champions league ambition’ or even ‘Danny Simpson signs new contract’

    Willo should do a self reflection first. Most hopeless player in the last 4 games.

    He is one big dump. Has the mobility of a slug in salt, had the positional sense of a cow on a motorway and has the composure of a 12 year old schoolgirl meeting JLS.

    Cries from a drowning man. Its always the players who have the most to loose who try and claim the headlines.
    He is a good average player and will be replaced in the summer IF we want aspirations of Europe and I think we do.

    Yeah yeah yeah, yadda yadda yadda. I’m sick of hearing soundbites like this. Stop talking and show us results on the pitch!

    How many times do we hear this crap then they go out and play like donkey’s?

    Lay off him lads, Tobe fair we all know hes not our first choice, but hes a better option the Perch at CB, at least he wins headers, we need his arial presence and before his recent dip in form he was solid for the most part.

    People are forgetting he was thrown into the first team after being out for months whith little to no reserve time first.

    I seem to remember him being mentioned as a possible for England Squads a little while ago as well.

    Mike-True nufc fans wil back you to the hilt , dont listen to the idiots that are getting on your back, get your compusure together like we know you can and keep grafting.

    Player bashing is counter-productive lads.

    I don’t think players are trying to ‘grab the headlines’ it is just that reporters submit requests for interviews and they have give them from time to time – I guess the players take turns are something.
    Yes Willo has made mistakes (Saylor has given away a few penalties in his time) but I think we all agree he is a squad player who is deputising for Saylor. If he gets injured or suspended then things could get worse!

    I have always like Willo, hes a great pro and he plays for the shirt, you can tell that. Like you say hes made mistakes but they are not that frequent if we are honest. I think hes a very useful squad pleayer. But some are too naive to see that.

    I wasn’t having a go at Williamson. I was having a go at ALL the players who give out these sound bites. I’d rather they all just kept their mouths shut.
    Remember Tiote last week and his “you have to be prepared to die” quote? The only time I remember seeing anything resembling dying was that pathetic Oscar display when he went down like a sack of spuds under Sess’s tap…

    thebionicMAG @12 Like I say the players are obliged to give interviews and have to say something – would you be happier if they said “Nobobdy can be *rsed next Monday because it is a long was to travel just to get trounced 5 – 0”!

    Just hope that we can Sign a new CD, RB while keep hold on these few players if the club have to.

    The club just doesnt want to spent any more on new players?
