Mike Williamson earned a second yellow card late on for Newcastle United but it did not help Aston Villa find a goal in a sloppy 0-0 draw.
It was a tough break for Williamson, as his first yellow in the 86th minute was very soft and seemingly given to "even out" things as the Magpies had not received a single yellow up to that point while Villa were already on four. It made no difference, as Villa were positively inept in the final third. Newcastle were equally poor in their attacking, but they did come close as Siem De Jong, making his debut as a substitute, had a terrific chance but was denied by Brad Guzan. Newcastle have a nice run of fixtures on tap, however their attacking players have done little to give fantasy managers confidence and the success of their defense today had more to do with Aston Villa's poor display.

Malky MacKay has managed Mike Williamson in the past and is reported to be interested in renewing the relationship as Cardiff begin life in the Premier League.

Williamson has seen his playing time at Newcastle decline in each of the past two seasons despite being in the presumed prime of his career going from 27 to 29 years old. While he has never been exceptional he would be a nice affordable signing for a newly promoted team hoping to stay up but not blow the budget in doing so.
