Time For Mike Williamson To Score First Goal For Newcastle

11:06 am, Saturday, December 22nd, 2012 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 118 Comments

Mike Williamson has taken his fair share of criticism this season from Newcastle fans, as have the defense in general, but an interesting fact is that we’ve conceded 26 goals after 17 league games, and that’s only four more than we conceded after the same number of games last season.

Mike Williamson in action against Sunderland – take that!

We know that Mike Williamson is an excellent professional, and that comes across in the interview he has given in the local press today, and this is what the 29 year-old  former Watford and Wycombe Wanderers player had to say:

“You look back on games and on mistakes but there is no point dwelling on things like that.” “It is all about moving forward. I like to think I am a harsh critic and I always try to tweak things where I feel it’s needed.”

“I am always confident in my own ability that I can carry on playing for this team and that we can keep clean sheets.” “Last season, everyone in the streets would be coming up to us and patting us on the back, stuff like that.”

“Now they are asking us what’s gone wrong and when will things turn. But that is going to happen because this is such a passionate city. They live and breathe their football so it’s understandable.” “You just have to look at the amount of shirts in the city – that is just the business we are in.”

“They deserve to see a few more better displays from us. The lads now that and we are all working hard to try to put things right and give the fans something to cheer about like we did last year.” “It’s just a case of trying to get that consistency and get back to the levels we played last year.”

“We have definitely upped our game in the last few weeks and have been a bit unfortunate not to get more points.” “Set-pieces are a big part of the game these days and we have not capitalized on them enough.” “The backroom staff are working hard to create different ways in a bid to get more goals because a goal at a set-piece is kind of a free one.”

“We feel that as a team we have not contributed enough through our set plays so that is something we have been working on.

Mike has now played 93 times for Newcastle, but still has to score his first goal for the club , and he’s sent up for every corner so one of these days, he’s going to score a goal – and hey Mike – why not make that today.

For the record Mike scored 11 goals in 167 appearances for Wycombe Wanderers and three goals for Watford in 23 appearances so he knows what it’s like to score a goal – just not in a black and white shirt.

And I just noticed on our Facebook page we have 1892 likes – what year were Newcastle founded again?

    Time for mike williamson to be sold!!

  • 2 sirtoongospel // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:11 AM

    Obertan won’t start today. Cisse is on the wing again. More Pardew rubbish.

  • 3 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:13 AM

    How is Obertan not starting Pardew rubbish? He didn’t say he would be starting Ed did

  • 4 HullMag6 // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:14 AM

    Agreed Kevy

  • 5 Super Magpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:15 AM

    I’ll personally stand bare arsed in fenwicks window if Williamson scores today.

  • 6 Beattie25 // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:16 AM

    This piece reminds me of the Simpson talk of last year.

    You can twist the statistics to suit any argument but when a player is simply not good enough you cannot use any other statistic than the ones your own eyes give you to know that we need much better.

    Statistically Willo and colo may be a better partnership than Saylor and colo but who would choose Willo?

  • 7 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:16 AM

    Williamson is good back up no need to sell him replace him in the starting 11 though yes

    If ur set on flogging a CB Saylor is the better option for that

  • 8 Super Magpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:18 AM

    Team for today-

    Simpson Willo Colo Santon
    Anita Tiote Perch (Jonas if not fit)
    Obertan/Cisse Ba Marveaux

  • 9 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:19 AM

    hahaha are we really relying on Williamson & Obertan to get us out of this situation, its comedy gold i tell you 🙂

  • 10 MacToon // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:19 AM

    Listening to radio 5 live world football show last night, Tim Vickery the BBC South American correspondant and a font of all knowledge on the game in Sth America had some news about Colo and it wasn’t great news and something that’s already been reported elsewhere.
    He’s said that Colo’s interested in returning to Sth America and his father in Argentina has been reported as saying this too!

    Personally I believe Colo will stay another season if we stay in the prem, if not i could see him returning home this summer. Tim Vickery is probably my fav footy pundit nowadays and he’s not a sensationalist journalist, infact he seems very down to earth so I believe him when he reports such things even if I don’t like what he says!

  • 11 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:21 AM

    @WWYCD good backup?

    He’s backing up now and look how sh it were doing

    every time we concede he is standing there with his finger up his ass …getting left for dead by players that ar’nt even quick he must go but i know he won’t ffs

  • 12 Super Magpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:21 AM


    Although Saylor is better than Williamson, he isn’t as good as people think he is. He hasn’t really had any stand out performances this season, probably because of the ever changing back 5 but only Santon has been a consistent performer in our defence.

  • 13 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:23 AM

    Although I will admitt he can play good once or twice a year vs stoke or norwich …

    But look at this ..How many fk’s and corners have we wasted? …Aww williamson back post then he just headers the ball out can’t even put it back across the box the donkey

  • 14 Marty-Toon // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:26 AM

    We’re a disaster at set pieces and Willo is one of the reasons,he fouls the opposition all the time.For a huge lad he rarely wins anything at corners either…..keep him as a sub

  • 15 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:26 AM

    On low wages, solid defender, rarely injured, good understanding with our main CB and won’t kick up a fuss about being a back up player

  • 16 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:28 AM

    MACTOON – Colo is the best of a bad bunch but would he get into one of the top four defenses, nope. I said a few weeks ago we need to rip the defense up and start again. Young Reme Streete maybe invloved with that when fit.

  • 17 shear-class // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:28 AM

    Its Not about time he scores its about time we sold him Brought Curtis Good back off loan he cant be any worse surely ,Williamson has got to be our second top goalscorer the ball is always deflecting off his gangly f****n body into our own bloody net

  • 18 BelfastMagpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:28 AM

    Mactoon is always the bearer of good news like…

  • 19 HullMag6 // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:28 AM

    Saylor was fantastic when he played last season proper old school cb play. This season, too cautious, erratic not the same.

  • 20 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:30 AM

    I couldn’t care if he was a backup player but not getting as many games as he is ..we need 2 cb’s in

  • 21 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:33 AM

    Its not Williamsons fault that Saylor can’t stay fit for longer than a month neither is it his fault we haven’t bought a starting CB to replace Saylor/himself so no real reason to spew bile on him

  • 22 cyprus // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:33 AM

    Agree with a comment above regarding Taylor. Anyway, we cannot count on him, he IS a Dyer (choice).

    On other matters, Harry was very clever to mention that we are not relegation fodder. Really, that makes us relax and play like we always do… AP must tell the players, WE HAVE NEVER been in so much trouble (in the PL). This is a do or die game, and it must be played like the ultimate 6 pointer that it is. We will probably make the 40 point mark, but just, so every game is a final starting now! And, games like Man U away cannot be dismissed as ‘well we’ll lose that anyway’ games. Too late for such ‘luxuries’.

  • 23 NEWEXPATMAGPIE // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:39 AM

    I don,t care who scores, just so long they don,t score and then stop playing afterwards.

    My nightmare is 1-0 at half-time and then defend till the last five minutes and lose 1-2 at the death.

    Oh what fun it is to be an NUFC fan!

  • 24 BelfastMagpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:39 AM

    Qpr have a load of players missing today, more than us anyway.

  • 25 MacToon // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:39 AM

    hoydog, so we ignore he was picked in the prem team of the season last season then lol.

    Sorry Belfast but it was said and from imo a reliable source.

  • 26 Magpies-till-d3ath // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:40 AM

    Colo will want to go back to S America at some point! The longer we hold on to him, the less he’ll cost as he’s not getting any younger!

  • 27 MacToon // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:40 AM

    hoydog! lol sorry, Hotdog ofc.

  • 28 AMEOBI // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:41 AM

    Kevy why don’t you get it? Williamson is a great player for bench as WWYCD.. He’s one the of the few poster who only chat sense.
    Spot on WWYCD

  • 29 Super Magpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:42 AM

    Have we really stooped to the level of being happy to stay up? That’s an embarrassment. I still expect us to finish top half if we bring in the suitable amount of players in January. If we don’t and fail in the last 32 in Europe and the FA cup then we need to have a look at ourselves. So far we have massively underachieved.

    Today really is a must win game. If we lose today we will be in serious trouble going into the new year. If we play like we did last Saturday then we will win comfortably. Even though QPR have had a mini revival under ‘Arry, they are still poor. Attack them from the start, their defence is very weak and won’t be able to handle the pressure.

    I’ll go for a 2-1 win today.

  • 30 Conaldo (The Wizard...Also Bestest Friends With Paul Scharner) // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:44 AM

    Belfast – Qpr also have eighteen thousand players.

  • 31 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:48 AM

    Lol we will see if WWYCD still loves williamson after todays match

  • 32 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:50 AM

    MACTOON – Admittedly he had a good season but can you see Man U, Man City or Chelsea coming in for him?

    I still think he would make a better Right Back but would i be devasted if he left us no. There is only one player i would really dread leaving us and that is Hatem. Now there is a player that the top four clubs will be looking at.

  • 33 Made a ma beed // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:51 AM

    Williamson is sh-t!!

  • 34 magpie6699 // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:52 AM

    Hi guys
    I’m just a bit concerned about the weather. It’s been throwing it down here (Bedlington) for the last 2-3 days and there’s standing puddles on the grass. No chance the game might be called off?

  • 35 Marty-Toon // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:53 AM

    If they have so many players then maybe we can take their best on loan and hopefully they play their worst 11 today 😉

  • 36 toonarmydownsouth // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:55 AM

    Bit OTT like mate willo in all fairness was pribably our best player in the back 4 vs citeh hopefulky that performance has got his confidence up and he’ll do well for us until a cb is bought in

  • 37 Marty-Toon // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:56 AM

    Hope it won’t be called off,that’s the last thing we need is to have a game less played than others and need to win it
    Hope we rock the place today,would have loved to have been there

  • 38 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:57 AM

    Cheers mate

    I don’t love him but I don’t dislike him either, he’s a solid CB back up that’s all he needs replacing in the starting 11 but I don’t blame him for currently being in it. I just don’t like reading abusive talk directed towards NUFC players

  • 39 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:58 AM

    Do i think williamson is shit, yes i do? 🙂

    TADS – Are you hungover mate, seriously “Williamson will do well for us”!!

  • 40 woolerbill // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:58 AM

    We all make mistakes, but Williamson mistakes cost us points, if you are slow of the mind and body, you don’t belong with us.

  • 41 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 11:59 AM

    @TADS although he looked good vs city people didn’t notice two of the goals were his fault where he was left for dead by aguero and then the corner were he let his man run free ..And actually the third aswell if you can remember he ran from 1 end of the six yard box to the other end (right infront of krul blocking his view) because krul reacted like 4 seconds after the ball was going by him

  • 42 magpie6699 // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:00 PM

    Marty – yeah, hope it goes ahead. The trouble is whenever I think of water-logged pitches and drenching rain I think back to that awful night when Ruud Gullit wrote his resignation letter by dropping Shearer, we lost 2-1 to Blunderland, the pitch was unplayable and water was cascading down the steps in the stand. Brings shivers to my spine!

  • 43 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:02 PM

    @WWYCD well I don’t mean to sound abusive I just think newcastle would be a far better team if he was replaced

  • 44 geordie157 // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:04 PM

    I dont rate Williamson, but what else do we have.!!

    Obertan off the bench may help us, but he needs to learn to run to players more and when to make a pass. A front trio of Obertan, Cisse and Ba can work! Anita, Tiote and Marv in the middle.

  • 45 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:05 PM

    magpie #42 – Although we got beat, that was some night had some drama in it that game. They still cling to that game the SMB.

    The drainage system on the pitch nowadays should ensure the game is on. It is only after heavy downpours that it cant cope and it aint been like that its just persistant drizzle at the mo.

  • 46 magpie6699 // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:07 PM

    hotdog – Ok – looked pretty heavy drizzle where I’m looking!

  • 47 ronjohno // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:10 PM

    Cannot believe it when people try to bull up Williamson or that The Journal this morning actually deem to seek him out for interview. as if anybody is interested.
    This bloke scares me everytime I see him on the pitch waiting for his next cock up.
    I have no time for players who “turn their back ” as he does causing own goals because he is too scared to face up to the ball
    Watch Stephen Taylor – he just takes it full on and to hell if it hurts.
    Williamson is best a lower Championship side player and that is being very very kind.

  • 48 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:14 PM

    Williamson did OK against Man City but yes i still watch him through my fingers, gives me the bejezzus 😉

  • 49 catchy in norway // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:15 PM


    id rather watch the match too , but a vessel came in and i said i would be at the base for it for a few hours,,

    so broght my son,(14) we will watch the hobbit, and il be on my phone keeping an eye on the match

    on a match note,,

    id be gutted if obertan gets the nod before marv,,

  • 50 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:17 PM

    Rob Lee’s last line just what i was saying earlier

    Right im off things to do before game HWTL

  • 51 toonarmydownsouth // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:18 PM

    Third goal okay maybe
    First goal no way colo shouldnt of been playing nasri onside and made no effort to get back and make a tackle and simmo was covering aguero and just stood there and watched aguero get goal side of him
    The second once colo had aguero and santon should be able to kick a ball when it drops to his feet!
    All four were at fault for the third as they just ran around like headless chickens
    But like i said willo put in a decent shift vs city and broke down alot of attacks and actually playef the ball out on the floor
    Personally felt he looked a lot more confident and hope he can take that into the next couple of games, im not saying he’s great but i’ll happily give credit where credits due

  • 52 catchy in norway // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:19 PM


    it was the one night the gods shone on scumderland

    we were used to playing it on the deck, they payed it in the air to quinny for philips, the weather suited there game on the night

  • 53 DarloGeordie // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:23 PM


    About the hobbit they all die in the end mate

  • 54 catchy in norway // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:25 PM

  • 55 catchy in norway // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:26 PM


    about the match today

    we will lose


    now we both no the outcome


  • 56 Dannyo // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:30 PM

    We had a strong unit last year tho who held the clean sheet for the 2nd most games of any teams last year. Exactly the same back four that plays now.
    Why are we not more resilient?

  • 57 DarloGeordie // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    Haha I’m going for a 2-1 win myself all fingers and toes crossed even said a little prayer at a Buddhist temple in Korat today so if we win 2-1 we should all change faith….

    Enjoy the movie it’s canny good like

  • 58 toonarmydownsouth // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:32 PM

    Same old same old
    By the way why no response yesterday catchy? Is it cos you basically called yourself a bad fan?

  • 59 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    As I said a new CB is needed but floggin Willo isnt

  • 60 toonarmydownsouth // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:37 PM

    I dont know mate im pretty sure its not entirely down to willo!!

  • 61 Big Pappa Cissé // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:38 PM

    Mike Williamson couldn’t score in a brothel with a million quid. Closest he has ever came was against Liverpool last year when he hit the post

  • 62 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:39 PM

    Krul doesn’t organise his back 4, Colos been out and Simmo and Santon have been asked to carry too much of our attacks imo

  • 63 Transfer Sage // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    I have nothing against mike Williamson as he plays to his ability but I wouldn’t call him an excellent professional.

    He has been at the club for 3 years or so now and he hasn’t improved.

    We can see he has a weakness with the ball at his feet. If he was a true professional he would be asking for as much help as possible and really working on this.

    I’m not saying he hasn’t tried as I don’t know for sure but from what I have seen I haven’t seen him get better so surely he can’t be working on it.

    Not just a criticism of him as a fair few of our players are the same.

  • 64 Transfer Sage // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:46 PM


    What makes you think we will lose to a team that have only managed one win all season (against a team with the worst away record over the past 5 or more years).

    I think the minimum we will get is a draw. Shown enough in the past 4 games that we should get a win. Also I was critical of pardew and thought he did, and still does, make some choices I wouldn’t but he has got us playing better recently even if results have gone against us.

  • 65 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:46 PM

    Oh and Tiotes been out/out of form and we haven’t had Cabaye relieving pressure

  • 66 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:50 PM

    And how is flogging williamson not needed? clearly there not gona get proper backup if williamson is there…say we sign douglas he will go in beside colo ..once again williamson is are backup now say we sign another cb like say people were saying that guy alderwield can play there…now who would you rather have backup williamson or alderwield?

  • 67 Beattie25 // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:52 PM

    The trouble with the rain is the fact that those poor on the ball will be massively exposed.

    I expect many a slip from Simmo, Willo and Krul today but hopefully it won’t be enough to see QPR take the opportunities and hopefully we can expose the poor control of their dodgy defence.

  • 68 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:52 PM

    Why would either Douglas or Toby come here to be back up?

  • 69 Beattie25 // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:53 PM

    Williamson is ok cover but why should we ever settle for ok?

  • 70 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:56 PM

    @WWYCD why would douglas be back up?steve taylor is always injured so douglas would be are starting cb with colo but what I was saying was if we don’t sell williamson they won’t buy another cb for backup and I for one would certainly like to see williamson sold and a better cb brought in

  • 71 Beattie25 // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:58 PM

    Williamson could be offered in an exchange deal for a young up and coming CB in the championship.

    Williamson has the pedigree and experience for the championship and we could sign a cb with potential who could step in and do a job when called upon.

    Somebody like Maguire of Sheff Utd?

  • 72 Beattie25 // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:59 PM

    Obviously Sheff Utd are leauge 1 but you know what I mean.

  • 73 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 12:59 PM

    Put it this way 2 cb’s in 1 out.But if 1 doesn’t go out 1 won’t be brought in.

  • 74 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:00 PM

    Then why keep Saylor he’s always injured and if he is told he is back up he will kick off add that to his pretty big wages plus he’s not a huge step up from Williamson

  • 75 Beattie25 // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:00 PM


    Nobody will buy Williamson.

  • 76 kevymartins // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:02 PM

    He is not a huge step up from williamson lol mate

    fitz hall is better than williamson

  • 77 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:04 PM

    How can Saylor be better for the team than Williamson when he is constantly crocked?

  • 78 Dannyo // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:05 PM

    Confidence issues in general maybe?

  • 79 toonarmydownsouth // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:07 PM

    To be fair stevie taylor really isn’t that much better than willo he panics gives aways terrible free kicks a fair few pens he’s looked so out of shape its untrue!
    The only thing he’s got is sometines he night grab a goal

  • 80 Dannyo // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:07 PM

    Cause that’s what many peeps here say is the problem. Willo AND Simmo.
    They played nearly no games last year u know…

  • 81 JCT // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:07 PM

    WILCO 40/1 FIRST GOAL…………


  • 82 WWYCD // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:07 PM

    Could be mate equally made we are just S***e all over this season

  • 83 andym // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:07 PM

    If we can sign douglas he will be first choice along side collo. Willo / staylor will provide excellent back up when needed in my opinion. Willo has been shocking at times but so has collo and staylor. I really cant see the point in selling him, for one hes english and we need a quota of home grown players and for two once we have some competition for places all the lads should improve…

  • 84 JAMSHA // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:08 PM

    Marseille president Vincent Labrune has
    indicated Newcastle will have to match his
    valuation to sign Loic Remy. Newcastle
    are willing to pay £10m but Labrune
    wants £15m. DAILY MAIL

    tought they said 10 mil deal seald lol

  • 85 Tsunki // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:11 PM

    Hats off to Ed there’s nothing like a Willo/Simmo article to rack up the post count.

    Ok so Willo is not the best but he’s not the worst either, we are certainly not conceding as many goals as some around us. And did any of you (rabid) Willo-bashers watch the city game, and if so did you understand what you were seeing? It would be a bit of a stretch to say Willo cost us that one, in fact he had a pretty good game in a generally good performance. I think some of you need to re-run your MOTD highlights to see who the culprits really are lol.

  • 86 papattack // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:12 PM

    we seriously need to buy a center back and full back. williamson and simmo are capable but not starters, if we want to be anywhere near the top end of the table we need better defenders.

    remy for ba would make me happy too, ba isnt commiting so bye bye. pains me to say it but if he was commited he’d sign without a release clause.

  • 87 Tsunki // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    Jamsha – taking the daily mail as gospel lol. They can’t even distinguish between euros and GBP.

    Willo was great last week, didn’t put a foot wrong and was the pick of our back 5. He was definitely being more bold, as AP has made clear he wants, doing his utmost to keep it on the deck and he looked decent – I suppose that’s one of the most difficult things to contend with for Willo – he’s got Colo beside him, who’s regularly lauded for being a cultured ball-playing CB and Willo has come through the rough and tumble of the lower leagues – you are what you is; it’s having confidence to play like he did last week, regularly enough that it becomes the norm, something that’s looked beyond him since he’s been here, particularly when the pressures on and we’re favourites. It’s easy in a way to play a little more loosely against Man City because of the low expectations.

    Steady as she goes – 2-0 today.

    Willimason is the worst defender in professional football at the moment. I would like to swap him with Frank Sinclair. At least he will offer us more of a goal threat and win headers in the air. I will also change my sexuality if Williamson scores today.

    Any team news??

  • 108 wreker16 // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:47 PM


    U said willo had his best game against man city.

    Anyway it doesn’t matter if the defenders don’t score, that’s not their job, they are supposed to be defending.

    Goals are just a bonus

  • 109 AMEOBI // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:48 PM

    Kets, what exactly has Williamson and Simpson done to you? Have they abused your family? Seriously same old comments.. But this time only Williamson, are you even at the game today? Ed ban posters like this reject from commenting!!

  • 110 Indian Magpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:50 PM


    To be Fair williamson hasn’t got any better. he did have a good game last saturday.

  • 111 h0sta // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:50 PM

    time for willo to score his first goal? how he could do it? he has no power with his headers and in the end all our corners and set pieces are playing to him for knock down…it´s the most funny thing in our strategy 99% of all death balls are absolutely same..frustrating in fact…its something i cant really understand – can you help me with that? 😀

    line up of the HOPE


    bench that demba “yeah i´ll strike it wide from 25yards in place of simple pass” ba and my christmas present is already sorted 🙂

  • 112 manxpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:57 PM

    Probably posted earlier but if this (as reported by the Sun)……..

    ‘DEMBA BA has snubbed an £80,000-a-week offer from QPR.

    ‘The Toon striker turned down the Premier League strugglers — knowing Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs are queuing up to grab him in the January transfer window……………’

  • 116 hotdog // Dec 22, 2012 at 2:07 PM

    Kets – oops did i touch a nerve…..bloke

  • 117 Ketsbaia9 // Dec 22, 2012 at 2:09 PM

    You’d like to think with centre backs coming up for corners, they’d get at least 3 goals per season.

    Everyone’s entitled to their opinion/s.

    Yes, Williamson did have his best game for us last week, but was still at fault for their second goal.

    I won’t stop until the pair are sold or not in the first team any more.

  • 118 Ian Magpie // Dec 22, 2012 at 2:15 PM

    Kets…………………………. I take my hat off to you mate! The amount of critisism you get compared to others on here and you stick by your guns! Your comments may not always strike a note of favour with everyone but I respect you for sticking by what you say. Well done marra! After all this is a blog about opinions and some seem to forget that!
