Newcastle fans react to Mike Willamson's performance against Burnley on twitter

Newcastle fans on twitter were not exactly complimentary about their defender's performance at Turf Moor.

Newcastle United laboured to a 1-1 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor last night, and were given a scare by the Premier League newboys.

George Boyd opened the scoring for the home side just after the half-hour mark only for it to be cancelled out by Pappiss Cisse just after the interval.

It seems as though a few fans of the Magpies were less than impressed with Mike Williamson, the central defender who seems to be getting quite a bit of game time lately - in part because of injuries suffered by central defenders at the club.

After an impressive run that saw Newcastle climb towards touching distance of the Champions League places, a defeat and a draw has followed for Alan Pardew's injury-hit squad.

Some fans blamed Williamson for the circumstances in which Burnley's goal came about as they failed to deal with a direct ball.

Here is what a few fans had to say:
