Good news today, although it’s reported in the Sun, that Newcastle are in talks with former England Under-21 coach Peter Taylor.
Peter Taylor with Sven Eriksson – Peter’s a top coach
Newcastle are said to be in talks with Peter Taylor, who was recently coach of the England Under-21 side, and is a first class coach who had a spell as manager of Leicester City, and recently managed Hull City and Crystal Palace.
The contract of one of our current coaches Steve Round, is up this summer, and there is some talk that Steve may move on from Newcastle United – so Taylor may be being lined up as a replacement.
Taylor would be great at Newcastle and would be a terrific signing to work with Kevin Keegan. Of course our own Steven Taylor played for him for the England Under-21 side, and Peter is not only well thought of in the game, he is also very well thought of at the English FA.
Peter is 55, and in his playing days he played for Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace in the 1970s, amongst other teams, and gained 4 caps for England.
He managed the England Under-21 team from 1996-1999 and then again from 2004-2007.
We hope this news is true – but what do you think?
