Mike Williamson Gets Goal Taken Away

Mike Williamson  has played 120 times for the Newcastle United first team, and 19 times this season, but he has still to score his very first goal, and we cannot wait for that happen.

West Ham United v Newcastle United - Premier League

Carlton Cole after claiming goal last Saturday

In our last game at West Ham last saturday,  Mike did manage to score but unfortunately it was an own goal, but today even that goal has been taken away from the Stoke-born player, who has been in outstanding form for Newcastle at the back this season.

This is what the Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel has said about the goal:

West Ham United’s goal against Newcastle United on 18th January 2014 was in fact a Carlton Cole goal and has therefore not been credited as an own goal by Mike Williamson.

We must say it looked like an own goal to us, although Carlton Cole was trying to claim it.

Mike has scored at other clubs he has played for and he had 3 goals in 22 appearances for Watford, and 11 goals in 167 appearances for Wycombe Wanderers.

Maybe Mike can notch his first goal for Newcastle at Norwich City next Tuesday night?

Comments welcome.

    It’s the only one that the numpty will ever score and they’ve taken it away from him.

    We only need 1 or 2 signings provided we don’t sell?

    Hmmm seems like someone does not realise that Cabaye is pretty much out the door, Remy will be going on to pastures new, Shola’s contract is running out and Colocinni has had his eye on the exit for over a year…

    But yeah, we only need 1 or 2 signings…

    A decent manager who knows how to get the best out of the current squad of players would be welcome instead of predictable Pardew.

    For once I find myself agreeing with Ruddy… there’s been very noticeable gaps in the squad over the course of 2 transfer windows now that still haven’t been permanently filled.

    With squad members already at the club seemingly unable to pick up the slack left by players through injury or suspension.

    Add to his list the need for an additional wingman that’s a vast improvement on Obertan or SamAm neither of whom I rate. Also an additional striker ontop of that to cover Remys probable departure in the summer.

    Unless our little ginger shearer comes back with enough gained in Scotland to be able to cope but even then would he be able to take on the role permamently and produce the goods Remy has this season.

    There’s a definite need for players to be brought in now given how long it took our original 5 to adapt to the PL (and even then some are a bit skittish at times).

    Still windows not shut… I live in hope. As do fans of most teams.

    Can anyone not see that come the summer if Nufc ha not signed anyone we are going to be in a lot of trouble.
    Even if De jong comes in on loan with a view to a permanent,If it doesn’t work out he will be going back top his parent club. So will Remy,Shola hopefully will not be offered another contract and its clear we are trying to off load our only forward in the shape of Cisse.
    Cabs is more than likely to be moving on. Colo is Probably off,Hopefully Obertan-Marvs-Gutti will follow.
    That’s 8 first team squad members that we have to replace which is going to take significant investment to bulk the squad back up. Do we really believe the fat controller will do this,And do we really believe it will come in this window. My answer would like to be yes but im afraid its looking very very doubtful that any signings will materialise.

    I think scoring is the only area where Willo could learn something from Saylor. In every other way I think he’s as good at his job as anyone in our squad and our only no-brainer pick for CB each game.
    Should at least make the squad for Brazil.
