Usually when we have our poll for Man of the Match, it’s usually the goalscorers who do very well, and with Loic Remy scoring such a sensational goal very late in the game on Sunday, he was ahead in the poll over the first day or so after the game, and manager Alan Pardew let it be known he thought Loic was the best player on the field.
Mike Williamson – looks happy at the back after sensational winner
But the votes are now all in, and it’s Mike Williamson who tops the poll with 30% to Remy’s 21%, and there’s little doubt that Mike had another sterling game for Newcastle, when it really mattered.
And Coloccini came back after the knee injury he picked up on January 1st at West Brom, and showed just how important he is to the team with another solid performance, and it was those two at the back that allowed us to keep a clean sheet.
We’ll need Willo and Colo to be in the same good form on Saturday at Hull City, if we are to get our second win in a row, and certainly that’s exactly what we need – with the next game with Everton having to be rearranged because they are still in the FA Cup, so we’ll have a blank weekend coming up.
Here’ hoping for another win on Saturday.
