Steven Taylor is looking forward to the derby game against Sunderland on Sunday and says he will score against Sunderland.
Steven Taylor - looking forward to derby game
The young 22 year-old center-back was born in Greenwich in 1986, but moved to Whitley Bay, when he was just two weeks old. Taylor offered to give his team-mates lessons in the importance of Tyne-Wear derbies but most of them played last November in a poor performance when Newcastle were lucky to get a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light.
Steven had a strong game on Saturday, and he is forming a very good partnership with big Abdoulaye Faye, who is playing the best he’s ever played this season.
â€œThe fans deserve a little present from us. Definitely,â€ â€œWe need to send them home happy, itâ€™ll be a lift for the city as well.” “Theyâ€™ve been very frustrated this season, because itâ€™s been difficult, but theyâ€™ve stood behind us throughout.”
â€œTheyâ€™ve never shut up when it comes to their support, theyâ€™ve been absolutely brilliant. A win against Sunderland would just top that off.” â€œIâ€™ve promised Iâ€™m going to score again this season and itâ€™s definitely going to happen on Sunday.â€
â€œOnce you cross that white line, the 11 playing will know what it means to the fans.” â€œWe need to make sure we give them three points. Iâ€™ll definitely be telling the foreign lads what the Sunderland game means to the club, although I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll need to do that, to be fair.”
“They played in the other game at the Stadium of Light when, to be fair, we didnâ€™t play to our best. Hopefully weâ€™ll bring them to St Jamesâ€™s Park, play better and have a good day.â€
Well, we might have to keep Steven to his word and have him score.Â Â
But it’s going to be very important that we get back to our winning ways against Sunderland. We could have won at Fratton Park on Saturday, but didn’t, so we’ll have to make extra sure of the 3 points on Sunday.
Then we will be on track to potentially finish in the top half of the league after what has been a disastrous season.
