If Ashley Stays – Taylor Is On His Way


As far as we are concerned some bad news tonight related to Steven Taylor.

Steven Taylor – could be on his way

The news is that Everton are in negotiations with Newcastle over the transfer of their local Geordie defender, Steven Taylor.

This is being reported by Sky Sports news and we have no reason to believe the news is not true.

But the last thing we want to see is a young player, who moved to the Newcastle area when two weeks old, and has captained the England U21 side regularly, leave the club.

It looks like Everton will finally sell Jolean Lescott to money-bags Manchester City,  and we have to think Steven sees his international career and future in general at a more stable club and one challenging for honors.

After all for the last 12 months, the Newcastle club has been a joke under the ownership of Mike Ashley.

There were a number of  scouts at the St. James’ Park on Wednesday night to see the Magpies beat the Owls 1-0, and Steven had a strong game, as usual.

We really hope we can keep Steven at the club, but we think once an announcement comes that Mike Ashley will keep the club, which could happen as early as tomorrow,  we think Steven will want out.

That’s unlike what happened with long term goalkeeper  Shay Given, who asked for a transfer  one day after Mike Ashley announced, on December 28th last year,  he was keeping the club.

That as not a coincidence.

There could also be other players, like Nicky Butt, who may elect to move before the end of the month, if that announcement is made.

They’ve just had enough of the Newcastle owner – but there again – so have we.

Comments welcome.

    Shay Given asked for a move away the day after because we had just been battered by Liverpool, something he described as the lowest point of his career.

    This is getting ridiculous now. Taylor has to do the best for his career, but the VERY least he could do is to tell us all why, not after like the other players.

    Btw Duff is a fucking twat. “I want to stay and get back in the Premier League”

    And then it turns out it was a nightmare.

    This is getting stupid now, if Taylor wants to go then ok fair enough.

    Either way why can’t he come out and tell us unlike the other players who’ve said AFTER they’ve left.

    E.G : Duff

    Just instinct. Being a fan himself, he’ll know how we’ll feel.
    I can’t see him moving from somewhere the people will always have time for him.
    I hope I am proved correct.

    id love to say he’ll stay, but my heart is telling me he’s off and im really sorry to sound bleak cuz ive always been optimistic, but as long as that fat sack of crap is in charge he’ll sell as they bid…

    We shall see – if sky sports talks as much shite as some people on this blog then we should be ok

    if he goes – We stay in the championship as the message that would be sent out would demoralise the squad and the staff trying to make the best of the a shit circumstance.

    i doubt any of you have ever heard me say this but here goes

    fcuk off you fat bsatard

    Lads just because it’s on SSN doesn’t mean it’s true. All they do is report what the papers and other news channels report. Occasionally they might be first with news, but never for newcastle.

    Remember they ran the textile mackem hoak, they also have ran the other hoax stories thinking they were true. It’s a load of rubbish, they don’t know nowt.

    and still 40,ooo will pile in giving Cashley even more money. We have a huge amount of money from the sale of players – yet it isnt going back into the team or the overdraft !

    The good start to the season is ironically the worse thing that could have happend – Ashley can now sit out the rest of the season with 45M from sales (Duff, Milner, Zog, Martins et al) 13M from Sky and probably 25M from gate reciepts/tickets – if promotion comes, price goes up – if not he can sell try again next year

    Yes i did Batty, i remember when Bunter first started posting and was on about “wor Donna”, then later on Stardust posted saying there was a Donna who worked at SJP. I thought then it was unsual for Stardust to stick up for someone like Bunter so that’s when i started thinking it was him or someone he knew.

    as much as i think he really could be off…all ill say is he hasnt had much time to deny approach yet. also you guys are right ssn do get it wrong sometimes… i seem to remember a coupla years ago when roeder was in charge ‘sky sports sources’ had strong sources that we were going to bid for darren bent when he was at charlton, it was breaking news and everything and nothing happened, so you dont know i guess

    WTF is this???? Sell taylor?? So colo and kadar start every single game for the rest of the way?? Suicide.

    Am i the only one who doesnt believe we’re gonna get sol campell or mcloven? it’s ashley for god’s sake.

    This selling HAS to stop. There is just no way we are buying anyone at this point. no way. Unless we get a million loans which i’m pretty sure there is a max on, we are going to be way too thin to keep winning like this.

    I’ve always hated the protests but if that fat piece stays and sells more players like taylor…
