Newcastle Start Taylor Contract Talks Today


There is an important meeting today in London, as we know, between Mike Ashley and Kevin Keegan, but there’s also another important meeting taking place in the capital today that will interest Newcastle fans.

Steven Taylor – contract talks start today

That’s a meeting that will also have an impact on Newcastle’s future success.

Tony Jimenez will be meeting with Steven Taylor’s new agent Leon Angel, and start negotiations to complete a new contract for Steven, that will hopefully see him stay at Newcastle for at least another four or even five years.

Until now Steven’s father Alf has handled the negotiations, but we feel it was a good decision that they let a professional handle the negotiations, and we already know Steven is very keen, to say the least, to stay at Newcastle United and play under Kevin Keegan.

This is good news, and it looks like the club are acting on Keegan’s request to secure, on long term contracts, the very good players he wants to stay at the club.

Michael Owen is of course another player we’ll be keeping, along with Steven Harper.

Comments welcome.

    KK will be politely getting his knuckles wrapped for his out of order comments after the Chelsea game.

    They were private thoughts he should only voice to the board and NEVER to Sky Sports.

    That part of the meeting will be quick and I’m sure KK will understand he should’ve kept his feelings out of the media.

    Then they will thrash out transfers deals for players they want to bring in, and make sure they get the majority of them.

    Then they will have a nice glass of wine, and look forward to well earned summer holiday

    News just in.
    Newcastle are going all guns blazing to win the EPL next year. Keegans word lit a fire under Ashley’s enormous ego, and Eidur Gudjonsen will sign within the next 24hrs. Michael Owen has already signed his contract, with Taylor to follow before tea time tonight.
    Also Richard Dunne is expected on Tyneside on Monday to complete his switch with Shaun Wright Philips in preliminery talks with Wise and Jimenez.

    It’s all true. Very reliable source.

    I would love it if they didn’t even discuss transfers. It was summed up in one sentence by Big Mike “Kevin mate, let’s show those cockney, mank and scouse tits a lesson, if you want a player he’s yours, any price, any player, Thierry’s already on a plane.”

    It’s as likely as us having to fight to get in the top 10 next season, the teams fighting for Europe at the moment are terrible we should easily have 5th. 4th isn’t impossible with our current set of players IMO.

    Martins, Owen, Zog, Butt, Faye, Beye, Enrique…All fantastic for us this season despite dips in form from Butt and Enrique(although José never dipped in form, people just decided he did. He’s been excellent, outshone of course by Beye)

    Thats about the worst news I have heard all week, now I am really depressed.
    Is Dunne really signing for us. The idiot doesn’t even know how to foul properly, still I suppose Taylor can teach him thats assuming the opposition stand still so he (Dunne) can actually catch them. Blimey even Carr is faster than him.

    McGeady has a bit of flair but I wouldn’t be too upset if we lost out on him, as I don’t think he’ll be anything special in the PL. Also tribal says we’re after M’bia…anybody seen him play much?

    When I said reliable source what I really meant was…

    I made it up.

    We can hope can’t we. Also if it does come true I’m going to work as a psychic detective.

    Also Alan Smith has probably cost us a place in Europe now that England has topped the fair play UEFA league.

    Yeah, Looks like Man City have just become front runners for that freak UEFA cup spot. Allardyce’s strong arm tactics have cost us dear, as we are nowhere near it.

    Spurs are also ready to beat Newcastle to the signing of Celtic winger Aidan McGeady. (Mirror)

    From the BBC. I will be going to Spurs but not as a suicide bomber. I will try to get ramos to stop buying players we want.

    yeh he did get red but he got quite a few less yellows than butt, its down to both of them, but thts the way those two play simple as tht, at the end of the day we dont deserve to be in europe on this seasons performance, you should get into europe on performance not for how many yellow/red cards u get
