Newcastle center-back Mike Williamson has had an excellent season on Tyneside, and that;s after it looked last August that his carer at the club could have been over, but he came into the side at half time at Everton, when we were 3-0 down, and he hasn’t looked back and Mike has been one of Newcastle’s most consistent players this season.
Mike Williamson – done very well this season
Maybe Mike would be edged out by Mathieu Debuchy or even Loic Remy, but there’s no doubt he’s had an excellent season on Tyneside.
Mike joined Newcastle just over four years ago from Portsmouth, and he’s one of those lower league players who have proved they can hold their own in the Premier League, and to think he cost only £1M – another good deal for the club.
Mike is hoping Newcastle can make amends for what happened at St. Mary’s last Saturday and get a home win against Manchester United on Saturday:
“It’s our next game. When any team comes to St James’ Park we feel as though if we play how we can do to our potential then we can get three points.”
“Man United are still a quality team with quality players and it will be difficult but it’s down to us that we go about our jobs probably and do it right.”
“We’re almost neck-and-neck with Southampton, pushing for a higher finish.” “It’s going to be difficult, as they are a fantastic team with good individual players.”
“We’ve got to brush ourselves down and go again.”
Mike has now played 29 times for Newcastle this season, and 130 times in total, but in his time at Newcastle he has never managed to score a goal – yet.
He scored 3 goals in 23 appearances for Watford and 11 goals in 167 appearances at Wycombe Wanderers, so he has been known to score some goals in his career.
With nobody else finding goals easy to come by these days at Newcastle, maybe he could break his duck on Saturday?
Hope so, and Mike is one of those players who what you see is what you get, and he always gives 100% for the side.
