Steven Taylor Hopes The Season Was Just Starting


Steven Taylor has had a frustrating season at Newcastle.

Steven Taylor – in good form last week against Birmingham

Steven was injured for most of the first part of the season, and then he signed a new long term deal in late December, to keep him at the club until the summer of 2016, and then he found he couldn’t get his place in the side with Fab Coloccini and Mike Williamson playing very well at the back for the Magpies.

Steven was born in Greenwich of Geordie parents, his father Alf was at the time working as a detective for the Metropolitan Police, and the family moved to Whitley Bay when Steven was just weeks old.

Steven came in for the injured Mike Williamson against Birmingham last Saturday,  and he had a solid game in central defense, and scored his 11th goal ever for the club just before half time, with a great bullet header from a Joey Barton pin-point corner.

That turned out to be the winning goal for Newcastle last week ina  crucial win, and the former England U21 captain is certainly looking forward to the game at Chelsea tomorrow afternoon.

Steven talked today about that game:

“I don’t want the season to end – I wish it was just starting, to be honest!” “It’s been a frustrating season for me personally, but I want to finish it on a high.”

“I’ve been given a chance, and I just want to make the most of it. I was delighted with the result against Birmingham.”

“To stay fit is the main thing now. I’m feeling fit now, and back to where I should be.” “We’ve got to carry that performance into Chelsea, which is going to be a difficult game.”

“We’re relishing it now. We’ll concentrate on ourselves, and not worry about them.” “They’ve got world-class players, but we’ve got the quality in our side to hurt them. “

Steven Taylor will get his wish at starting a new season in a short 7 weeks time,  when Newcastle will commence their pre-season training and then commence a 3 game tour of the US.

We really don’t expect anything out of the game tomorrow, although we’d be fine with being proven wrong – again.

Betting company William Hill have given odds of 14/1 for a first ever Premier League win for Newcastle at Stamford Bridge – but they have been very wrong before.

Haven’t they? 😀

    I have to say Steven Taylor has always been a brilliant defender. I really like playing him because he is a local kid. Bring more and more youngsters in!

    haha cheers pal
    Am hoping for a Balotelli hat trick then getting sent off cos hes a mental b*****d.

    I wish we could get Adam Johnson he’s wasted on the city bench and he would be electric for us.

    Would love to see this tomorrow:

    ——————————Krul————————-

    —Tavernier——–Colo—STaylor——–Enrique

    –Lualua————-Barton—Vuckic——–Fergie

    ———————Ranger—–Shola——————

    I reckon Pardew will play something like this though:

    ——————————Krul————————-

    —Simpson——–Colo—STaylor——–Enrique

    –RTaylor———-Barton—????????—–Jonas

    ———————Loven—–Shola——————

    The question is, who gets that other CM spot?

    Been on the SCUM forums and they think its a disgrace that they are on the same points as us. Think they are punching way above their weight. They forget we have tanked them twice this season and they also forget who have actually competed in Europe also they forget who has spent more time in the CC. Crap club, crap fans, crap stadium in fact everything about Sunderland is utter garbage. CHEEERRRSS Bruce!!!!

    Fair play some of their fans are prats but I am friends with a few and tbh most Sunderland fans are good banter very much the same type of fans we have.

    I work with them 6 days a week. I work in Washington but live in Wallsend so i have quite a few Sunderland mates as well. All clubs have prats i admit but a lot of the Sunderland fans are so deluded its unreal. All i say to me mackum mates at work is “come back when you have finished 2nd in the EPL and played in Europe on numerous occasions” that seems to shut them up some what lol.

    haha am sure it would bless them. I also think the rivalry between us is mainly on their side…they are just another team to me. Dont mind seeing them do well though (its good to have two properly northern teams doing well) just aslong as we do better 🙂
