Mike Williamson – Sky Sports Interview After Win – Video

6:56 pm, Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 18 Comments

Mike Williamson has been interviewed on Sky Sports after the 1-0 win against Crystal Palace today, due to a sensational winner scored by Papiss Cisse after 93 minutes of play, and set up quite brilliantly by substitute Hatem Ben Arfa.

Here’s what Mike Williamson had to say immediately after the game this afternoon.

It was a labored performance from the lads today – no doubt about that – but hey a win is a win – and it’s the third win in the last four games for the Magpies.

    @ king

    Is it better to be inconsistent but come up with the goods 1 in every 3 games or contribute nothing at all ? .

    Gouffran has done nothing in the second half of this season yet gets no criticism whatsoever because he “helps out defensively” which IMO is bullsh*t .

    HBA only gets slated because he tries to beat a man or go for goal and unless you are Ronaldo or Messi 9 times out of 10 it will end in nothing but at least he TRIES .

    It is similar to midfielders that are constantly judged on their passing accuracy but 90% of them are across field or backwards, but the stats look good so who cares .

    Also don’t think I am hating on Gouffran as I think he is probably our best striker at the moment and I would play him centrally .

    I still dont understand why we dont play gouffran upfront. If he can get 7 goals on the wing, how many could he get upfront ?

    BPC if krul weren’t saving shots should he be in the team
    or willo or collo letting players score 3 or 4 goals a game against them should they start?

    no of course not same for arfa not doing his actual job

    and bandb so wat your saying is you’d rather some individual brilliance than a team that works?

  • 4 toonking // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:08 PM

    yes well HBA is not messi or ronaldo so he will miss them 9 times out of ten

    pardew is not morineo so he will make lots more mistakes and that means he should be sacked, so the same can be said with HBA because rather than being stupid and going for shots himself what he should be doing is passing the ball about to the rest of the team otherwise they will not bother passing to him any more.

    I see Tony Pulis (churlish as ever) is bemoaning Palce’s missed chances. Yes they had some chances but nothing like the number we had. Cisse himself could have had 5 goals before he scored. The actual stats are : Shots 21 v 8; On target 8 v 1 and possession 73% / 27% – the last is a bit misleading tbf as much of it was ahead of Palace’s 8 man defence. Really don’t like that man!

    @ barnold

    Because Pardew has no balls and is scared to drop players that he either :

    a) likes as a person.
    b) Are defensive first and attack minded second.

    Marv, HBA & M’biwa would get into every team below us but for whatever reason they are Pardews favourites to drop .

    is it safe for me to come on here

  • 8 Big Pappa Cissé // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:12 PM

    @ King

    Did you watch the game ? .

    HBA put two brilliant crosses in, one a sitter that Cisse missed and the other he scored from . Is that not doing his job ? .

    Let me ask you this :

    If HBA didn’t come on today would we have won ? .

    barnold because we haven’t got an actual lw
    and haven’t had a decent 1 for a long time infact if its true about the guti new contract thing
    why in gods name didn’t we buy a new 1 in january!!

  • 10 welshgeordie9 // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:14 PM

    Manxpie how come you only come on here on match day

  • 11 BarnoldswickMag // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:15 PM

    Pardew clearly dislikes Ben Arfa and Marv because they are flair players and he doesnt understand how to use them. Marv could get 2 assists in a game and get motm but he would still get dropped for someone defensive minded. And i have no idea why MYM got dropped because his partnership with willo was quality.

  • 12 toonking // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:17 PM

    BPC did you see that ball he chose to sky way over the bar rather than pick a pass

    also how can we be sure that cross he made was not infact an attempt at goal which we were lucky enough to go towards cisse.

    their is only 2 crosses i saw him do in the whole 30 minutes since he came on and one was just forced because it would have went out.

    unless you will give praise to pardew for despite the same mistakes he does each and every week why should HBA be getting full praise when he does the same greedy selfish manner each and every week?

  • 13 manxpie // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:17 PM

    bpc he stepped up today

    but he played in our cardiff loss
    our derby loss our west brom loss our norwich draw

    did he turn up in them games?
    did he win us any of them games?
    did he assist in them games?

    welsh because your on the other days!

  • 15 guvnor // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:19 PM

    Willo sounds like a vicar or a nufta!

  • 16 BarnoldswickMag // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:20 PM

    Marv is a lw, im not saying we should play him over gouffran but he is a lm option. I agree, we should definately have bought a lm player because we cant keep playing gouffran in that position. Im sure we bought him as a natural striker.

  • 17 welshgeordie9 // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:20 PM

    Don’t be like Belfast now, where’s that little prick anyway

  • 18 guvnor // Mar 22, 2014 at 7:22 PM

    manxpie sounds like he needs a straight right hander or his tail docked!
