The Newcastle Journal is reporting this morning that Steven Taylor wants to move on from the stupid altercation with Andy Carroll which landed Steven in the Newcastle General Hospital on Sunday, with a broken jaw.
Steven Taylor – willing to move on
But it also appears that Steven will now be unable to return this season, after slowly recovering from the knee ligament damage he suffered against WBA in January.
Steven Taylor will not press any criminal charges against his team-mate but Mike Ashley will wait for the results of the inquiry he has initiated.
Steven expects the club to take disciplinary action against Carroll and also wants an apology from Carroll for his attack on the center-back during training.
Obviously a number of Newcastle players were witnesses to the the fight and the argument that led up to it, and they will be interviewed as part of the internal investigation.
The Newcastle club have still not commented on the altercation, and they may now elect to let the matter die a natural death, and even keep the punishment and results of the inquiry confidential.
In fact in retrospect it appears the club have handled the matter very well, and it was not allowed to get in the way of another vital away win last night.
Credit to the players and the coaching staff for concentrating on the game last night.
It was not easy and who would have believed Andy Carroll would be the match-winner with a knock-out punch that floored Doncaster after 59 minutes?
You cannot make this stuff up – because nobody would believe you.
