Ryan Taylor has talked about life in the Championship so far this season and the 25 year-old former Wigan player seems to be loving it.
Ryan Taylor – loving it in the Championship
Taylor told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I’m looking forward to Forest, not only to play but because I recovered when I did and I’m raring to go.”
“It was disappointing, really, and in a way quite weird, because I got told I was going to be out for at least two or three weeks, so to come back after one was credit to the physios here and myself for trying to get back fit.”
“A few people might have said it was a bit too soon, but I felt great.” “I know my own body, and I was just happy to be out there.”
Newcastle have 5 league games – 15 possible points – coming up in 21 days, and after Saturday’s game the lads have a trip to Glanford Park to face Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night.
That should be a certain 3 points, but it’s also these games that could be a banana peel for the Newcastle side.
Newcastle will again be playing in front of a sell-out crowd on Tuesday night, but Ryan says he is enjoying the experience of playing in the Championship.
“There are games thick and fast – one minute you’re having a massage, the next you’re playing.”
“You wake up, and you’re back playing again – it’s crazy.”
“We’ve got lads who are going to dig in there throughout the season, and that’s what we need.”
We’ve always liked Ryan, although he has taken some stick form some of our readers, but he seems to be coming though nicely this season, and starting to score goals, which is always a big help to the side.
And what a free kick that was against Ipswich, which was Newcastle’s 3rd goal in 4 minutes to send the Geordie fans wild.
Taylor continued and talked about that free kick:
“It reminded me of the first goal I scored against Newcastle at the JJB.” “It was from left to right, and into the far top corner.”
“The goalie’s had a little touch on it, but as soon as I saw it go in, I was absolutely buzzing.”
“To go in 3-0 at half-time was quite crazy.” “It’s been a long time coming – it was about 20 games into my Newcastle career.”
“I want to get it in the back of the net more often.” “I’ll keep working, and if I do, they’ll keep coming.”
One of Ryan’s value points to the side this season, is that he can play in multiple different positions, and for that reason alone, we expect him to play a big part this season, at the Tyneside club.
