The Media Frenzy Will Only Make Us Stronger


Mike Williamson has come out and defended his manager Alan Pardew, who is under pressure to deliver results this year – with the club sinking to third bottom of the league after the first seven games with only 4 points, and the squad looking like it’s just not strong enough.

Mike Williamson in action last Saturday

This is what the 6’4″ center-back had to say:

 “It has been difficult. It always is when you have a bad period.” “The lads are working their socks off and there is no lack of effort, we are all working hard behind the manager and trying to put things right.”

“Outside of football, sometimes things go further and it is hard,  but Pardew is very professional in how he goes about his job, he is very focused and there has been no reflection of anything bothering him.”

“That (the media’s reaction to our results) is what can happen with the frenzy they can create, and you end up with a bandwagon that people are happy to jump on.”

“It is part and parcel of the game and there is no getting away from the position we are in. and the results we have had, so that is the black and white of it and we need to get points on the board as much as we can.”

“This will only make us stronger and people will see that when we get out of this period.” “We go into the break on a high and with a chance to get some work done, come together and make sure we win the next one.”

“We just need that luck, but we need to build a base to make sure the luck goes your way and our spirit and persistence paid off for us at Swansea.”

“We had to get ourselves in a position to get the result and the win but I am sure it is coming sooner rather than later.”

Williamson has not been at his best so far this season, and neither has captain Coloccini,  and it’s causing us to give far too many goals away in our games, 14 in the first 7 games, and when we have trouble scoring goals – that gets to be a bit of a problem.

While we are hoping the strike partnership of Riviere and Cisse can become a good partnership for us up front soon, we have to tighten up at the back, and of course the latest hamstring injury to Daryl Janmaat has not helped things.

But it also seems the protests lodged by the Newcastle fans to try to get Alan Pardew out of the club, is not exactly helping the players on the field.

What do you think?

    Williamson is pardewed on the brain level. I don’t know what they expect after only 5 wins in 2014.

    Gouffran and Williamson both wheeled out for their PR spin today.

    The team may well be behind the manager, but the manager simply is not good enough.

    As for the fans jumping on the protest bandwagon, I think Williamson has a blinkered view of things, The media picked up on the discontent of the fans not the other way around.

    The fans protest because of the drivel we have to watch Williamson and co produce week in week out, not because the media say so.

    The fans have there own minds, they are not sheep following a media shepherd, some even still support the inept one and his merry men.

    Williamson is just like the inept one and should consider engaging the brain before opening the mouth, as all they do is leave themselves wide open to ridicule.

    What a joke of a statement.
    I’d like to see a video of him saying that.
    Prepared by the PR gurus.
    More to come, no doubt.

    Willo knows that as soon as a Pardew replacement comes in he will only make the bench. Same with Goofy.
