If Wayne Rooney or Didier Drogba had scored the goal that Ryan scored on Saturday the press would have been hailing the goal as a truly great one.
Ryan Taylor – when he arrived in January
But this is Newcastle and Ryan Taylor, so it hardly gets a mention, but of course we are also finding out that Championship games hardly get a mention, as live TV is completely dominated by the Premier League.
Ryan has finally scored a goal as good as the four he scored against Newcastle before he arrives on Tyneside.
Saturday’s effort was just a terrific left foot curling shot from the edge of the penalty area, that was a delight to watch.
And it seems like Ryan Taylor has become a big fan of Chris Hughton’s as he said today:
“He’s done a fantastic job since he came in,”
“The lads have all got behind him and we would love to see him stay for a long time.”
“If a new owner wants to keep him here, then we would be happy.”
Hughton’s immediate future may even be decided today, as we all await the announcement on the status of the Newcastle sale to Barry Moat.
