Williamson: Comeback shows spirit

first_img Press Association There have been reports that the sizeable French contingent in the Magpies’ dressing room are at odds with the non-French players but Williamson feels that performance shows such talk is wide of the mark. “There has been a lot said about it, a lot of speculation but you could see the commitment and the euphoria after the game between the players,” he said. “There is a lot of passion now and we are a very tight bunch. Maybe a lot is said about it in the media but it is all rubbish because the lads are tight, everyone doing it for themselves as much as each other. “There is a lot of relief in the changing room and with the fans. It was a tough, tough game. We had to show resilience and character and I felt that is what was needed.” Williamson acknowledged the club’s fans have endured a rocky time this year, particularly compared the success of the previous campaign, which ended with Europa League qualification and widespread acclaim. But he feels those highs can be attained again. “We are aware of what they (the fans) have endured this season,” he said. “As players, maybe we have not hit the heights both personally and collectively but we just want them to know it wasn’t through a lack of effort and commitment. “Hopefully we showed them that and we can enjoy the last game, the fans can have a great day out and we can try to get a big scalp against Arsenal. “We’ve got the strength and depth and whether we add a few in the summer or not that is down to the manager, but I feel we have all the quality and the attributes to replicate what we did last year. I know it has been a tricky, tricky season but hopefully with a bit more of a rub of the green we can do what we did again.” center_img Newcastle defender Mike Williamson believes his side’s 2-1 comeback win against QPR on Sunday proves there is no split in the camp.last_img read more

ARCADIA, Calif. (July 6, 2016)–Rockingham Ranch’s Chalon and Peter Cantrell’s Miss Southern Miss head a field of six 2-year-old fillies, five of which are recent maiden winner’s, in Saturday’s $125,000 Landaluce Stakes going 5 ½ furlongs at Santa Anita.Originally titled the Hollywood Lassie and named for the ill-fated daughter of Terlingua, who was trained by D. Wayne Lukas, Landaluce, with Laffit Pincay Jr., aboard, won the 1982 Hollywood Lassie by 21 lengths while stopping the clock for six furlongs in 1:08 flat, but never ran again as she succumbed to the effects of a fever several months later. MISS SOUTHERN MISS: Trained by Keith Desormeaux, this Kentucky-bred daughter of More Than Ready was bred by her owner and rallied strongly through the lane to win at first asking by 3 ¼ lengths going five furlongs here on June 9. Off at 7-1 in a field of eight, she split horses turning for home and galloped out many lengths clear of odds-on favorite Tap It All, who she will again face on Saturday. With Flavien Prat scheduled to ride her back, Miss Southern Miss would appear to have plenty of upside as she readies for her second career assignment. CHALON: Trained by Peter Miller, this Kentucky-bred filly by the Mineshaft stallion Dialed In fetched $110,000 at the Barretts March 2-year-old in training sale and she responded solid 2 ¼ length first-out maiden score going five furlongs here on June 23. Dismissed at 9-1, she showed good speed out of the gate and won in virtual gate to wire fashion while well within herself under Tyler Baze, who rides her back on Saturday.center_img THEONEWEWAITEDFOR: Owned and bred in California by Heinz Steinmann, this daughter of Creative Cause was a gutty first-out maiden winner in open company going 4 ½ furlongs here on May 26. Trained by Mike Harrington, she pressed the early pace and prevailed by a half length while getting the distance in a rapid 51.80. Based at Los Alamitos, she’s out of Steinmann’s productive Eastern Echo mare, Yolo Lady, and looms a big threat stretching out a furlong.
