Reports tonight are leaking out, that say it looks like Steven Taylor may be ready to sign his new improved contract to stay on Tyneside.
Steven Taylor – sign the contract Geordie boy
Obviously Steven has read our report this morning that it’s time for him to make a decision, and it’s got to be his decision alone, and time is running out – and he’ll have to decide quickly, and certainly before the end of December.
We have no idea if these reports are true, but we’ve always liked Steven as a player – simply because he can do a good job for the club, and his heart has always been on Tyneside.
But there’s little doubt the club have made an all court press to try to get Steven tied up, especially after his fine performance on Sunday against the PL Champions, which was his first start for 10 months, and he did very well considering he must have been a little rusty.
There will be a meeting between the club and Steven’s agent Paul Stretford this Friday, at which point the new formal offer will be presented.
It would be simply terrific if Steven signs the new contract, and if he can do it this week, he can then celebrate with 3 points at West Brom on Sunday.
The three wise men, Beckham, Prince William and PM David Cameron in Zurich today
And after watching Sky Sports tonight, it looks like England are back in with a more than decent chance of getting the 2018 World Cup, but if they do, then there’s one man they will need to thank – and thank a lot – David Beckham.
It’s amazing how this lad has grown up and matured in front of our eyes over the last 12 years, since his sending off in the World Cup back in 1998, and he’s been a great diplomat for England these last few days in Zurich.
The latest British betting odds make England almost a joint favorite tonight with Russia, with Spain trailing way behind.
But it could well be that Vladamir Putin’s bizarre statement today, which contained some biting comments, along with his failure to attend the proceedings, could hurt the Russian bid.
