Steven Taylor is an important player for Newcastle this season, and from now on, since he represents the Geordie pride we badly need to see from the side – starting on Sunday.
Steven Taylor – Geordie Pride for all to see
Steven told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:
â€œThe players have so much respect for Kevin Keegan.â€ â€œHe is a legend here at Newcastle. He gets the players going in the dressing room and gives you something extra.â€
â€œWe know as players weâ€™ll have to work hard too, but if we can get that first win it could be the start of something.â€ â€œIf we stick together we will move up the table.â€
â€œWith Kevin back weâ€™ve got a great chance.â€ â€œWe have to look forward to Boro â€“ our season starts now.â€ â€œWe have a few things to work on, but weâ€™ll be ready.â€
That’s a great way to think about things â€“ that the season starts now, and we should see how many points we can pick up in our last 14 games. Hopefully we’ll start to look a more than decent side by the end of the season, and Kevin has then promised to bring in some good new players during the summer.
Taylor is refusing to rule anything out in terms of qualifying for Europe:
â€œThere is a long way to go, make no mistake about that.â€ â€œWe need to put points on the board, beginning against Middlesbrough.â€
â€œItâ€™s a home game and a massive chance to do well.â€ â€œThe atmosphere at St Jamesâ€™ was fantastic against Bolton and against Stoke.â€
â€œThe fans have been brilliant at The Emirates twice in the last few days even though we lost both 3-0. Now we want to pay them back with a win.â€
We really need to win on Sunday and we want to see the lads coming out and enjoying their football. Hey what a concept – but that’s what winning teams do.
