Mike Williamson is one of the few players who have had a good season at Newcastle, especially since he started the season as Newcastle’s fourth choice center-back in August.
Mike Williamson in action at Manchester United
Mike has played a lot of games for Newcastle this season, and he will start tonight and this will be his 33rd appearance for the side this season, and that’s the most games he’s ever played at the club in one season, since signing from Portsmouth in January of 2010 for a measly £1M.
Mike is upbeat and says the squad has had two fantastic days of training:
“We look at the table and think if we hadn’t have gone through this form what could have been. That is the frustrating side of it.”
“The lads have got high expectations of themselves in the dressing room. We just need to get back to basics.” “We have had two fantastic days of training and it has been positive and upbeat.”
“That’s what we are looking to take into tonight. For me this is a standout game that you relish playing in.”
We can only assume that two fantastic days of training means we scored from every corner kick and from every free kick we practiced over those couple of days.
That’s what we need tonight – some good set plays – and we assume Paul Dummett will be left-back and will be taking most of the corner kicks and free-kicks.
Mike Williamson has played 133 times for Newcastle, but has still to score his first goal for the club.
Maybe he can get one tonight?
