Good news being reported today in the Evening Chronicle, that Newcastle will resist Everton’s interest in Steven Taylor.
Steven Taylor - Newcastle to resist Everton overtures
If that’s true (and we’re not sure what to believe about most things about the club these days), that’s good news because the vast majority of fans want to see Steven helping Newcastle get back to the Premier League at the first attempt.
The lads more than a solid performer and has been very strong in the first 3 game of the season, and we’re hoping he’ll soon be linked up with Sol Campbell, who wants to join Newcastle on a free transfer.
There were some concerns that the club may leave Steven out of the squad because of the Merseyside club’s interest, but apparently that’s not the case, so we are told.
The future of Steven at Newcastle very much depends on whether Mike Ashley remains the owner at Newcastle, and if he does we expect Taylor to want away.
Steven would be delighted to stay if Alan Shearer is the new manager, but if Mike stays that’s not going to happen.
We’d love to see Steven stay at his home town club, and he probably already knows the fans certainly don’t want him to go anywhere – because he epitomizes the Geordie fighting spirit.
It would be great if Steven is still a Newcastle player at the end of the transfer window.
