Steven Taylor – I Can’t Help It, I Just Can’t Help It


The last two matches have seen two patched-up Newcastle sides put in two very good performances and get 4 points from a a home win against Birmingham, and an away draw at Chelsea.

Steven Taylor – I’ve scored again – would you believe it

And the Newcastle side will be even more patched up on Sunday, as we all heard today that another regular first-teamer – Argentine International Jonas Gutierrez – will not be fit for that game and his season is over.

But Steven Taylor was in an upbeat mood today, as the spoke the Newcastle web-site:

“We’ve come up with two fantastic team performances and at St. James’ on Sunday, there’s no reason why we can’t give the fans something to hold onto until next season.”

“It’s just been about being in the right place at the right time, and there have been some great deliveries.” “In the Birmingham game, Joey Barton put a delivery in and Ryan Taylor’s put a lofted ball into the back stick where Nile Ranger rose above a Chelsea defender and I was just fortunate to be there and nodded it home.”

“It’s nice to get on the score-sheet and we picked up a point at Chelsea which was fantastic for us. The team performance was spot on again, the game plan worked well and I thought, as a team, we fully deserved that.”

The truth is that Steven Taylor just loves to score goals, and now he’s got 12 goals in total for Newcastle, and for those who used to score goals when they were playing – you know what it’s like when that ball goes into the back of the net.

It’s no surprise that Steven started off as a center-forward so that may explain why he’s just so delighted when he scores.

Steven continued with a wry smile when he was asked why he’s over the top when he scores those goals: 😀

“I can’t help it – it kills me for about five minutes after the goal so I’m going to try and calm myself down a little bit!” “It’s just that feeling when it does go in the back of the net – I can’t tell you how good it actually feels. It’s just the best feeling ever.”

“But as long as it goes in the back of the net I don’t care who scores, as long as we get the three points. To finish as high as we can is what the whole of Newcastle wants now. We could finish eighth and it would be fantastic if we can do that.”

We don’t mind at all the celebrations Steven puts in when he scores a goal, because it shows a local lad playing for his home town team – and what scoring means to him – you may have your own ideas on Steven Taylor – but you can hardly question his commitment and passion for Newcastle United.

It would be terrific if Steven can get a third goal in as many games on Sunday afternoon – and yes – we’ll see some more wild celebrations from the 25 year-old – great!

You’ll also see some celebrating from a packed full St. James’ Park crowd too.

Howay The Lads!!

    Did anyone else think when Guti left the field against Chelsea when he waved to the fans it was like a wave goodbye?
    I reckon he is off in the summer with his bestest buddy Enrique and i think they have the same agent too…We will see

    @boztoon, Yes! I did notice that.. Probably reading too much into it though, I really hope they both stay. Colo would be lost without them both for a start!

    Yeah prob just being paranoid but it was more of a “Might be my last game wave” than “Cheers for great support lads wave”
    I bet most fans like me keep a eye on Enrique when we score a goal to see how he celebrates to kinda see if his heart is still in toon or somewhere else.
    Obviously would be perfect for him to score againt wba sunday like he did against notts forest last season n if he celebrates the same way then he must be staying ,O)

    Skysports reporting that Taiwo has signed a 3 year contract with A.C Milan so that means that we aren’t getting him but assuming that it means that AC are no longer interested in Jose so that’s one less CL playing club that doesn’t need his services 🙂

    that Borini thing couldnt be true as hes a free agent anyone can sign him but chelsea will be due little compensation as he’s under 21.. he’s also said in recent weeks he wants to stay in england and he likes swansea but said he would only consider staying if they got promoted

    kilcline@

    Ive watched him Chelsea reserves alot (on Youtube) he is is just prolific even more prolific than Struridge, and is young and fast and a clinical finisher for only £1.5M thats a transfer you will see in the biggest bargain on 2011/2012 season list.

    Really like Borini and its crazy Chelsea are going to not renew his contract,, but we MUST be looking at Championship thats Pardwhos area, i believe in an earlier interview a few days ago he says he wants to stay in EPL more than go back to Italy, we should DEFO bid 1.5M for him. but i bet we are holding our money back for Carlton Cole 🙁

    Steven Taylor is just a great player! He is a local lad and has broken through which is even better for the club! He needs to start every game next year and look for the future! 😀
