Ryan Taylor may not be the best player at Newcastle, but his honest play, endeavour and experience will be a huge help to Newcastle’s survival next season, when Newcastle are back with the big boys.

Newcastle manager Chris Hughton told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Ryan will get his fair share of chances. He missed out a bit in the second half of the season when Wayne Routledge came in.”
“And he didn’t get the amount of games he probably wanted to get.” “When a team is winning it’s hard to make changes every time you pick the side.”
Taylor had a very decent season and still played 31 times in the Championship campaign and 36 times total appearances, scoring four goals and he had five assists, so he did his part for the Newcastle club.
Ryan will never make the headlines for any world-class play, but he is the type of honest player that every club needs in their squad to be successful.
We think he will get plenty of games for Newcastle next season, either at fullback or on either wing, and he was a very good buy from Wigan 16 months ago, since we got £6M and Ryan for Charles N’Zogbia.
As we said he was a good buy.
Ryan wanted more playing time last season, but that’s not always possible with an in-form playing squad, which Newcastle had last season.
But Chris Hughton has today revealed how highly he rates the 25 year-old Liverpudlian as he talked about the former 4 times capped England Under-21 player:
“He’s a good player and has plenty of Premier League experience to boot.”“When he looks back on last season he played his part and in a big amount of the games.”
“It’s not just about the starting XI, it’s a squad game and everybody knows they can’t play every game.”
Ryan Taylor is an excellent squad player for Newcastle, and we’re very pleased he’s at the Newcastle club.
