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

Coloccini And Williamson

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:
