    Yeah guess Williamson, who may have difficulty jumping over a matchstick, failed to get up and cut out the center for the WBA goal, like i predicted.

    I looked at Ed’s blog which has a poll for MOTM. Williamson is top so far with 120 votes / 31%.

    I am not saying they are the most knowledgeable, I am just saying…

    What is interesting is that the relegation places seem to me to be getting set. Jol will probably be sacked soon and if you are bottom at Christmas, you usually go down. I fear for Palace and the Mackems.

    Goufron, was MOM for me, scored a goal and worked his socks off. Nearest thing we’ve had to Rob Lee since Rob Lee.

    Can’t see why Shola was named MOM, yes he had a good game but how many high balls did he actually win?

    Perhaps in general Williamson did play decent for a big part of the game, but that’s not my point.
    It’s those instances that result in the opposition scoring, that i’m talking about.
    Go look at the WBA goal, where he attempts (being out of position) to intercept the ball and gets all of two inches off the ground.
    Then go back to other videos where he was responsible for various reasons.
    It appears he is presently being over praised, the reality is the man’s a liability, but it’s the old story,
    grit and loyalty, make for a good story and there are obviously plenty who fall for it.
    Ah well, what can i say !

    Worky @25 #

    You talking bout the three photo’s where he is being outjumped, beaten to the ball and tripping a guy ?
    Yeah they only prove my point.

  28. 28
    avatar chuck says:

    Grumpy old toon @24 #

    Does that include Gary Speed.

    But yes i agree about Shola getting MOM, considering the efforts of both Sissoko and Gouffran, who just ran and ran, for the full ninety minutes.
    It’s the combo of Cabaye, Sissoko, Gouffran and Remy, that are responsible for the recent success of the side, who’s efforts are based on pure hard work and skill, which they exhibit game after game.

    Army lite

    Go look at the highlights and tell me if Williamson jumps more than two inches off the ground.
    Poor prior positioning, plus Debuchy being out of position, led to his (Williamson) failing to head the ball, resulting in the WBA goal.
    Dont take my word for it !

    What I really liked about Iron Mikes game on Saturday was that he did the simple things well. i.e. putting the ball out of play rather than trying to be clever.

  31. 31
    avatar GS says:

    Totally agree that Gouffran has been outstanding and has probably been our best player along with Remy. That shouldn’t mean that other players are not recognized for their input.

    Shola has done much better than I could ever have expected. His lay offs have been excellent. I wasn’t sure if he had it in him as he had looked like Bambi on ice so often in the past. If it doesn’t continue, then we have Ben Arfa or Cisse, which isn’t a bad situation to be in.

    Williamson has exceeded my expectations by a mile. He really hasn’t put a foot wrong. That cannot continue and as soon as he makes a mistake Chuck will unleash the demons from hell on him. Even then, we cannot play Coloccini and MBiwa together.

    We are unlikely to see a new centre back in January unless we get a great deal or Coloccini is allowed to leave. Fatty will not spend the money when we have 4 fit central defenders plus Dummett as backup.

    avatar GS says:

    Has Pardew made some adjustments or just been lucky to have good players who are getting used to the premier league? For now, we are above this years darlings – Southampton.

  33. 33
    avatar AndyMac says:

    Adjusted the team after the Mackem debacle by playing Shola up front and Remy slightly deeper. Thus relegating HBA to the bench.

    He worked the system against Citeh in the LC but had Cisse up front instead of Remy. Since Chelski he’s stuck with it and arguably, although its not the best use of players, its doing a job.

    for williamson to get his head on that hen woukld need to be 7 foot 4 not 6 foot 4 put it down to a cracking shot from brunt

    makeing ya self look silly now chuck

    avatar chuck says:

    Look some are praising local lad Shola, who has always been a decent player, but to use him as a starter is not
    utilising him to his potential.
    He should IMO at his present age be played as a second half impact player, as anyone who watched hom during the last twenty minutes will tell you, he was dragging ass.
    It’s only because Cisse has not yet hit his stride yet that he gets these starts and for Pardew to not pull him, before he runs outta gas, shows what kinda manager he is.

    As for Williamson, (he does the simple things well) duh !
    Your supposed to, thats not my point about the guy.
    The fact we have won four straight among other things has not only been somewhat attributed to his presence, but to vote for both he and Shola as a possible MOM, can
    only be based on sentiment, because i could name four or five who consistently have better games.
    Yeah i know it’s a great media story, guy waits his opportunity, then makes the most of it.
    The fact is he was on the bench because he was last choice, that plus Pardew (Mr. Predictable)does not change a winning side.
    Yeah some of the fans even believe he has suddenly become John Terry and buy the media story, the realists see it otherwise.
    So dont embarrass yourselves by claiming i dont know what i’m talking about, hell the most praise anyone ventures is “he keeps it simple”, “he does the little things right”, faint praise if any.

    “@ chuck

    He would have to be taller than 7’4″ Toon!

    There were one or two other big Newcastle players under that cross, and when the ball was lower in it’s flight too, but Chuck singles out Williamson nonetheless. He’s even blamed him for stuff he’s had nothing to do with in the past. It’s quite silly really.

  38. 38
    avatar Grumpy Old-Toon says:

    Chuck, just thought about what you said.

    I could also have said he’s the closest thing we’ve had to Gary Speed since Gary Speed. All three are of a similar ilk but with their own unique aspects.

    Goufron will need to do the biz for a few seasons to really compare.

    Everyone (apart from Chuck) is calling Mike Williamson ‘Iron’ Mike Williamson now, the Times. the Daily Mail, everyone :lol:

    It was actually ‘UTD111′ who first called him that when he was writing pieces on here.

  46. 46
    avatar AndyMac says:

    I’m not calling him Iron Mike either and I’m EVERYONE :)

    Even you’ve got to admit its Goof who’s made the biggest impact !

    “Yoan Gouffran is key for Newcastle in the 4-4-2 formation that Pardew is using at the moment. He joined in January as a striker but he has really made the left midfield position his own. He has surprised Newcastle fans with his incredible work rate, and the Frenchman is often seen in the left back position protecting Davide Santon. People expected a lazy striker when he signed, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. He has made 13 tackles at a success rate of 84.62% which is great for an attacking player. He has also made 14 interceptions, again showing his influence defensively.

    Many may compare him to team-mate Jonas Gutierrez who is a defensive winger with exceptional work rate, but Gouffran offers more going forward. The former Bordeaux striker has assisted twice and scored four goals so far this season, while Gutierrez only managed one goal last season without assisting once”

    Most people applaud the underdog. A player who has gone from Wycombe Wanderers, to being touted to every Championship club in the summer to lynchpin of the Newcastle defense is a heartwarming story to most. Especially, since he cant jump over matchsticks. I wonder if Carver will be putting that in the Newcastle training manual? Or, our next centre-backs CV must include ability to jump over matchsticks. Who cares if he shores up the middle and has good positional sense and does the simple things well. It is the ability to leap like a salmon over matchsticks that is important.

    heads a fair few balls away that come into our box not to shabby for a dude that cant jump over a matchstick as chuck claims lmao
