Taylor Talks About Everton Game on Sunday

Steven Taylor, who has an excellent game against Chelsea last Monday afternoon, talked about Newcastle’s last game of the season at Everton on Sunday.


Steven Taylor – looking forward to Everton game

Taylor told the Evening Chronicle today:

“We were disappointed not to finish our home campaign with a win and now we want to end the season on a high by beating Everton.”

“It was a good team performance against Chelsea but we were disappointing in the second half.”

“We didn’t create much after the break and once Chelsea scored it knocked us a bit.” “Now all I am bothered about is Newcastle winning at Everton then I’ll be happy.”

However, Everton know that defeat could see them miss out on 5th place and a UEFA Cup slot if Aston Villa also win at West Ham.

Taylor added:

“This is a massive game for us.” “We are playing for contracts and also playing for our shirts next season.”

“So the importance of the game is there for all to see.”

“We can look forward to sending the fans away happy if we win at Everton.”

Taylor is pleased that United aren’t involved in another game that means nothing, and we’re sure Keegan will stress that that Everton are a team Newcastle will need to overtake next season if we are to finish 5th in the league.

It’s a good time to test ourselves against our real competition next season. Steven continued:

“I’m pleased that the game still means something. I can think of nothing worse than a dead-rubber game.”

“Everton will come at us very strong but it’s up to us to deal with that.”

“If we do what we did at the start against Chelsea we have a chance of getting something out of the game.”

“The Blues made it hard for us and it was a good test but we ended up disappointed but we just have to deal with that and move on.”

“As a unit we defended well, but we must look back at the game and see how we can improve.”

It would be very nice to win at Everton, especially with all the circus stuff that has been going on in the press with Newcastle, since we were beaten last Monday by Chelsea.

    Poor Steven Taylor will be gutted the season is over, he’ll have nothing to talk to the media about for a few months, I’m sure he’ll think of something.
