Steven Taylor Big Player For Magpies Tomorrow

Steven Taylor came on for the injured Habib Beye yesterday at right-back, and it looks like the local lad will now get an extended run in the Newcastle first team, after being on the bench for several games recently.


Steven Taylor – will get extended run in side

The England Under-21 captain talked about the defeat yesterday, after the game:

“We all said at half-time we were disappointed at the tackle on Habib and we promised that we would do all we could to get a good result for him.

“We have pulled things back before and anything could have happened in those last few minutes, but it wasn’t to be.”

Ryan Taylor, the Wigan midfielder did the trick again yesterday, with his 4th goal against Newcastle, and it was another great free-kick in the 29th minute, that went up and over the wall, and beat Shay Given to his right. Shay certainly didn’t seem pleased by the goal after it went in.

Ryan and Steven are good friends from their time together in the England Under-21 side.

Steven added:

“I spoke to Ryan before the game and I told him there was no chance of him scoring against us yet again because he had done it so many times and he just laughed it off.

“When he did score I felt sick, but he has that quality.

“He’s got six months left on his contract and I wish he would go somewhere else because I am sick of him scoring against us.”

Maybe he should be a target for Newcastle, and that wouldn’t be the first time somebody has mentioned he would be a very decent acquisition indeed for us, especially as he will be a free agent in the summer.

Steven – get on the phone with him – quickly.

We now are rather desperate to finish the year on a high note tomorrow, after what has been, even by Newcastle United’s standards, an awful year for the club, the fans and even the players.

Taylor continued:

“We wanted to have a bit more confidence going into the Liverpool game,”

“That hasn’t happened, but from our point of view we’re at home, and there’s no reason why we can’t put in a performance for the fans.”

A win would be just great, but everybody in the side tomorrow, whoever they are, will need to be at their very best against an in-form Liverpool side.

This is also a big chance for Steven to show just how mature he has become this season, and if we are to get a result, he will have to give a disciplined and strong performance alongside Fabricio Coloccini, in the middle of our defense tomorrow afternoon.

Comments welcome.

    Ryan Taylor would be a great squad buy. Clearly we need verstile defenders and if it stops him scoring against us!

    I hope Steven Taylor seizes his chance and shoves the words of many Newcastle ‘fan’ down their fickle necks!

    In my eyes he should be supported because he is :

    still a quality defender
    still young enough to fill his potential
    and still a Newcastle United player.

    A new year is dawning, lets hope the forth coming year we can ALL be UNITED.

    Typical, Taylor makes an appearance and he’s straight off to the press to flap his gob.

    Hope Bassong manages to get back into the squad once he’s served his suspension.
