Good News – Ryan Taylor Back In Two Weeks

Maybe the fact that Dan Gosling, Ben Arfa and Ryan Taylor are all retuning from injury soon, was one reason Alan Pardew allowed Wayne Routledge to go out on loan to QPR this last week.

Ryan Taylor – gives Newcastle different options

Of course it seems that Dan has had a little setback, but we hope the emphasis there is on little and that he’s just been asked to do too much football in the last couple of weeks. A good weeks rest for Dan may be just what the doctor ordered.

Dan’s looked a really good player when he’s played for Newcastle over the last couple of weeks.

The good news today is that Ryan Taylor is back in two weeks from his ankle injury, and we’ve always thought Ryan was  a better  player than he’s given credit for – but plays best where he is most useful – up front on one of the wings.

When you think that Ryan can score goals, is excellent on free kicks,  and can also throw a long ball into the box, he is someone Alan Pardew can use as part of the Newcastle attacking options.

The last time the 26-year-old played was in the 4-0 home defeat by Arsenal in the Carling Cup last October, but he seems upbeat and hopes to return to training in a couple of weeks:

“I have enjoyed going back into training and I am looking forward to being back in the team and showing the new manager what I can do.”

“I scored good goals against Chelsea and Accrington Stanley earlier in the season and I felt my form was good.”

“Steve Bruce once said at Wigan my delivery was better than David Beckham’s, and though people seem to remember me being a right back there I was most of the time playing in a wide midfield role.”

“When I scored, that is where my goals came from. It was the same last season in the promotion games, I notched five goals from there.”

“I am desperate to be back playing and if I get a chance I know I can do a good job for the team.”

“ With the strikers we have here, I can help provide the quality service they need.”

With Wayne Routledge back at Queens Park Rangers on loan this week – Alan Pardew is looking to bring some wingers in – but when he looks at the injured players Newcastle have out right now, Ryan, Ben Arfa and Dan Gosling – every one of them can play on either wing.

But bringing in  a fresh face on one of the wings is something Pardew is still trying to do, but admitted yesterday that January has been a terrible month for him, as he tries to do deals, but January seems so hard to do a good deal in the transfer market. Why football still has the January transfer window is a good question.

Even if  Newcastle don’t bring any new players this month – the fact we have Ben Arfa, Gosling and Ryan Taylor coming back from injury has to be good news.

And Ryan will see he has another chance to ignite his Newcastle career under Alan Pardew, because he just wasn’t getting the games under Chris, and this Liverpudlian just wants to play football.

When you think of the skills Ryan has – he does give Newcastle different options, and surely Pardew can use his skills on the attack,  more effectively than Chris did.

We like Ryan Taylor a lot as both a player and a person, and we’d like to see him stay on Tyneside.

But if he doesn’t get the games under Alan Pardew, we have to think he will look to leave Newcastle in the summer for pasture anew, where he will get more playing time.

We hope that doesn’t happen.

For the record, Ryan has appeared 50 times so far for Newcastle with 6 goals, and has been on Tyneside almost exactly two years.

    However bad he has been in the past he has a chance to prove he can play as he will definitely get a chance on either wing in the next few months!!

    It will be good to have Ryan back.
    We need quality on the wings and he is certainly good at crossing the ball.

    Hope we beat the spuds today …

    decent player R.Taylor wicked free kick on him can be dodgy at full back but could play as a RM should have a decent cross.

    I`d be pretty pi##ed if we let Routledge go because Raylor was nearly fit. Raylor is a poor player the only reason we signed him is too stop him scoring against us.
    If Carlsberg made crap,slow players………

    Could be months before Ben Arfa’s fully fit,and weeks for Raylor,Gosling knee looks suspect so I dont expect him to play much over the next few weeks,although the the lads have done well so far this season,the next few weeks could be crucial,so we need to get some players in quickly to push on,even get in to a European spot,cos apart from the top five we’re as good as any team in the league.

    Ryan Taylor’s dead ball option is quite impressive.
    But that’s what it is- Unless he gets to settle the ball, pat down the grass, step back, breathe deep, have his opponents stand ten yards away, line himself up, concentrate….But unfortunately, you don’t get too many chances to do that in open play.

    >>Maybe the fact that Dan Gosling, Ben Arfa and Ryan Taylor are all retuning from injury soon, was one reason Alan Pardew allowed Wayne Routledge to go out on loan to QPR this last week.<<

    Or maybe it's just a really bad idea until it's confirmed that these players are going to stay healthy.

    Good to hear Ryan is on his way back – now we can sell him – he’s not good enough.
