It’s not often that the Evening Chronicle brings out a report late in the day, but that’s what they did yesterday, and they are reporting they believe Peter Taylor will soon be confirmed as the Newcastle Assistant Manager.
Peter Taylor – he’s a terrific coach
We had reported yesterday the news that Peter had said he had been approached by Newcastle and there was indeed some validity in the news going around yesterday in the press.
It looks like Taylor will be ready to complete Alan Pardew’s backroom staff, and work alongside Willie Donachie and Steve Stone, and new goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman.
We would think a man of his experience and stature would officially be named as the Assistant Manager at Newcastle, although we’re not absolutely sure of that.
We are assuming the Chronicle may have some inside information on this, but there’s no doubt that Peter Taylor would be an excellent coach for the Newcastle club.
That’s especially true with all the youngsters the club needs to bring through the ranks in the coming seasons.
And as we said yesterday, he was offered the position of Director of the Newcastle Youth Academy in May of 2008, but he turned the job down at that time.
Instead he took the job as manager of Wycombe Wanderers at that time.
