Ryan Taylor is one of the players who wants to play a lot more for Newcastle United, than he’s played so far this season.
Ryan Taylor – team spirit at Newcastle is great right now
But today Ryan has come out and said the team spirit at the Newcastle club is the best he’s ever seen at any club, and that he still looks forward to going to training every day, in an attempt to convince manager Chris Hughton that he’s worth a starting position in the Newcastle side.
This is Ryan Taylor said this morning:
“You are always going to have happy and unhappy faces at a football club, that comes naturally – I’m sure if you look at Man City, there will be people in the same boat as some of us.”“What matters is how everybody still works together – and that’s a big factor for us.” “We all want to play in the Premier League, but in a way going down did the world of good for our club.”
“It got rid of a lot of players who showed their true colours and didn’t want to be here – and the people who stayed pulled together.” “The team spirit we have got at our place now is probably the best I have ever been involved in.” “Even though I’ve not been playing I still look forward to going in to training.” “The ones who are in the team are always up – it’s the same at every club – but here the ones who aren’t playing are still mixing in.”
“You’ve got me, Alan Smith, Peter Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi, and there’s a few coming back from injury too like Leon Best and Danny Simpson… and Sol Campbell is itching to play as well.” “People will show a bit of frustration at times, but we need to keep that character and team spirit in the dressing room.”
“And hopefully my goal at Chelsea reminded people I’m still alive!”
But we think one of the difficulties manager Chris Hughton will soon have at the Newcastle club, is that Ryan Taylor definitely wants to play more games, and if he cannot do that at Newcastle, he may want to go out on loan or even leave the club permanently in January or next summer.
It just seems that Ryan wants and needs to play more games than he’s getting at Newcastle this season, to be satisfied with his football, so don’t be surprised if Ryan even asks for a transfer in the summer – but only if he continues to be on the bench at the Tyneside club.
Ryan has certainly shown he’s a good player when he’s played, and in the two games he has started this season, he’s scored two great goals, so there’s not too much more he can do to impress the Newcastle manager.
There’s an off chance he may get the nod at right back in front of James Perch today at Eastlands, although Chris Hughton has said he will stand by James Perch, after his unfortunate own goal gave Stoke City all 3 points last Sunday, and our second successive home defeat.
That’s one reason Newcastle now need to get something out their game against Manchester City this afternoon.
