Oh the Watford boo-boys are just gonna love this...
Former Hornet (and failed Premier League wannabe) Mike Williamson has told of his wish for a warm welcome from the Watford fans when he returns to Vicarage Road - with Newcastle on Saturday - despite leaving under a rather large cloud less than 5 months ago.
'Big time charlie' Williamson, who threw a strop and a sickie when the lure of the bright lights and filthy lucre on offer at Portsmouth caught his eye, is the current pantomime dame on the Hornets 'most hated` hitlist.
... but he admits "hopefully I will get a good reception" and says he is "looking forward to going back" when he turns out for those pesky Geordies at the weekend!!!
Hmm, his comments in today`s Newcastle Evening Chronicle may prove to not be the wisest of decisions he`s made of late (well that, and joining crisis club Pompey, of course) as the boo-boys will, no doubt, be clearing their throats as we speak.
After making just 22 games for Watford, Williamson insisted "I owe Watford a lot - they gave me the chance to make the next step into the Championship... I`ll always be grateful for that".
And the sad thing is Mikey, my man, is that we were very 'grateful` to have you and your 6ft4 sized frame in our backline until you turned your back on us.
Williamson did go on to admit "I had a great time there and I`ve got a lot of close friends there that I still speak to" but then confirmed "I`ll put those friendships to one side and do whatever I can to get three points for Newcastle".
Let`s face it, Williamson might well come back to haunt us on Saturday so we can only hope that that self diagnosed 'injury` that meant he didn`t board the team bus to Swansea (and signalled a premature end to his Hornet career) springs up unexpectedly again...
