Steven Taylor had a strong game at the back for Newcastle last Saturday, and with that performance, which was getting near to what Steven is capable of in the Premier League, the lad from Whitley Bay has a chance to keep his place for the tough game at Spurs on Sunday.

This Youngster Can Become Huge Star For Magpies

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 · 2 Comments

We were really impressed with the substitute performance of Ayoze Perez on Saturday afternoon, and he did a lot of good work running at the Leicester defense, and then after 85 minutes, the young Spaniard brilliantly set up Papiss Cisse,  when he beat a couple of players in the box and sent over a perfectly weighted cross, but Papiss Cisse could only head the ball straight at the goalkeeper. :(
