Another telling contribution from Williamson leads to yet another toon defeat.
I have no clue whatsoever why Pardew continues to pick Willo; he’s useless in defence and for some inane reason we use him as a target man from free kicks and corners at which he’s worse than useless.
However, it’s not at that end of the pitch he’s dangerous, it’s at our end.
Alan, Willo is not premiership class, play Perch or Good or one of the kids, Willo has always been an accident waiting to happen and the number of goals he’s wrongfooted Krul with is uncanny.
The lads played well tonight and didn’t deserve to lose. Why you brought off Ben Arfa is questionable, and no doubt you’ll tell us you’re protecting him, but everything was going through HBA and as soon as he came off we lost our flair and momentum.
Come on Pards, these decisions are costing us and we’re now well and truly in trouble.
Things could’ve been so so different if the fat controller had spent some money in the summer and I know you have to play with what you’ve got but what you’ve got won’t keep us up.
You need to get on your hands and knees and beg, otherwise you’ll be plying your trade in the Championship next year.
