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.
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?
