Steven Taylor – We Can Survive On Sunday!


Steven Taylor is 99% Geordie, having been born in Greenwich, and moving to Whitley Bay when he was just 2 weeks old, and yes he will upset about the 99% piece. 😀

Steven Taylor – we can survive

But having been brought up supporting Newcastle United, and being a ball boy during the Kevin Keegan era, he knows all about the Newcastle club, and what it means to the fans to survive tomorrow afternoon at Villa Park.

He told the Evening Chronicle today:

“There is no reason why we cannot do it.” “Some people think it is not possible, but they can think whatever they want. We are the ones who can make the difference.”

“No matter who plays, they will give it everything in the tank. We have beaten Aston Villa already this season.”

“So, with the right team belief – like we showed against Middlesbrough – we will be OK.”

“We want to send the fans away from Villa Park happy.” “We want them to go away for the summer and have a Premier League team to come back to.”

“They have been brilliant all season. They mean so much to us and we want to give them something back.”

And the nonsense that was written about Manchester United fielding a weakened team at Hull City tomorrow is an insult to Alex Ferguson, and just that – complete nonsense.

The Academy product added:

“No matter what teams Chelsea and Manchester United play, they will want to win.”

“They will want to finish the season in style.” “Like all footballers, they will want to claim three points.”

“No matter if you are just coming through the ranks or an experienced professional, you win for pride.”

Steven is so right with those words.

Note:

We noticed the Evening Chronicle reported today that Steven was born in Whitley Bay – you would expect that local papers would get it right, wouldn’t you?

We understand they even get paid for writing their articles.  Can somebody please enlighten Lee Ryder at the Evening Chronicle.

    I think Furgie has done us a favour. If Rooney and key first teamers where playing Hull they would have one eye on the final, might even pull out of the odd 50/50 tackle. The young blood will be out to impress. Therefore all we need is a point at Villa ?….sound simple !!! Ha’way the Lads.

    Despite the hoo-ha, tomorrow’s game is about more than just fight and we have to hope that we can find the quality to attack convincingly.
    The idea of Villa having not much to play for and us fighting for our lives fills me with dread… that’s the worst kind of situation as we have seen with the players freezing so often recently under pressure.

    For me – in a weird way it’s important to have the laid-back viduka … as he is a bit casual and won’t let the situation get to him in front of goal… I hope at least…

    reet I’m babbling.. it’s the nerves yee knaa.

    honestly speaking after hearing so many fans say it might be a good thing to go down + start afresh – NO WAY . its the worst thing that can happen & your not guaranteed a swift return.
