There are some daft reports in today’s papers that Newcastle United have been rejected by 8 management candidates, and that up to 11 of our players will want to leave the club in January.
Steven Taylor – smashes rumors he wants to leave
Give us a break – please!
Newcastle United center-back Steven Taylor has today dismissed stupid rumors linking him with a move away from St James’ Park in the January transfer window.
The 22-year-old local lad, who was born in Greenwich, but moved to Tyneside when he was just 2 weeks old, signed a new four-year contract in the summer.
Steven has said the managerial and ownership problems surrounding the club right now, will not force him to consider a move. We suppose he’s used to all the turmoil that has surrounded our club over these last several years. 🙁
Steven told the Shields Gazette today about the reports:
“I don’t know where this has come from, it’s news to me.” “I’m happy at Newcastle United, I wouldn’t have committed my future here if I wasn’t.”
“I just want the fans to know the players are hurting and desperate to turn things around.”
“They’ve been fantastic and got behind us, despite everything that’s been going on, and we want to give them something to shout about.”
Since Kevin Keegan resigned, both Steven and the great Fabricio Coloccini have both been off their top form, and that has cost us some goals in our two defeats.
We have to hope the lads will be a lot better against a poorly performing Spurs outfit on Wednesday evening, and a win would be a great tonic for everybody associated with the club.
We have to have some good news sometime – don’t we?
