Ryan Taylor started his career with Merseyside’s other club, Tranmere Rovers, whom he joined 6 years ago when he was just 18 years old.

Ryan went on to play for Tranmere 98 times with 14 goals, before moving to Wigan Athletic in 2005.
Ryan is from the red half of Liverpool and he is naturally looking forward to a win over the Blues on Sunday afternoon, as he told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I’m from the red half of Liverpool.” “I’ll make sure we get a win there!” “My family’s a mixture, really.”
“Obviously, if you’re from Newcastle, you support Newcastle, and if you’re from Sunderland, you support them.” “It doesn’t really work like that when you’re in one city with two clubs.”
“Sometimes on derby day, when you’re watching at home, you’ll be with your mother, who’s a blue, and your father, who’s a red.”
“There are never any bad feelings, but with me being a red, personally I don’t mind seeing Everton lose!”
“We have just as good a squad here (as Everton), if not better.” “The quality here is different class.” “They’re all proven international players.”
“We’ve obviously got to look at the likes of Aston Villa and Everton.” “We want to be where they are, and it’s a case of hard work, and togetherness, starting on Sunday.”
Everton have lost just once in their last 13 games in both league and cup, and that was against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
So what does that tell us?
They are obviously due another defeat fairly soon, and we might as well take them out of their misery on Sunday afternoon. 😀
We’ll be looking for the lads to show us some top form, as well as a never-say-die spirit, because we need the points desperately.
Add to that the fact the lads will want to win this game, so that Joe Kinnear has a good first day out of the hospital, and we may just be able to do it.
Howay The Lads!!
