Steven Taylor – It’s A Massive Season For Me


Steven Taylor signed a five year deal at his home town club late last December, but he has played very few first team games since then.

Steven Taylor – massive season for local lad

And today, in the People, Steven says that next season will be a massive season for him.

Last season was close to a nightmare for Steven, as he had been injured for the second half of the promotion season.

And then when he came back and played his very first game in July at Carlisle United,  he damaged his shoulder and was out until last  year.

And then he found he couldn’t even get into the side, because of the fine form of a certain Mike Williamson.

The former England Under-21 captain admits 2010 was a year he wants to fully forget, and he is looking forward to the upcoming season:

“This is a massive season for me. I have got myself fit again and now I want to crack on.”

“I have come back in good shape like the rest of the lads. It is about keeping fit now and staying in the Newcastle team.”

There  will be massive competition between new captain Coloccini, Williamson and Steven for the two center-back positions in the Newcastle first team.

And 21 year-old Hungarian International Tamas Kadar is also  fit again, and also challenging at center-back and left back.

Tamas also had an injury interrupted season last term, and he will be hoping to add to the 18 appearances he has so far made for Newcastle, since signing from Zalaegerszegi TE back in January of 2008.

Steven will be on the plane today to Kansas City, with the rest of the first team squad, as they fly over to Kansas City to start their three game American tour.

Comments welcome.

    F*** this, so now we have to “sell to buy” I thought we already did that when we sold our star striker for 35m? Sturridge is class, but why the f are we looking at loan deals,front up the cash and buy him FFS. I’m fed up of this shit, “sell to buy” that is beyond a joke.

    That might scupper our chances completely if at this stage we ask for it to be come a permanent thing at the end of the season. What’s in it for Chelsea?

    it needs to be handled very delicately and I’m not sure Pardew has the wit for that.

    Maybe i,me dumb but i,ve been googling trying to find out where the reserve team are going to be playing across here in Holland!
    I would like to try and get to go and watch them!!

    Any tips from anyone on here on how to get that info would be most welcome.

    As for the striker situation, it is a bit stupid negotiating for a player who at the end of the day does,nt want to come and play for us anyway! I would of stopped our bid as soon as that became clear. Love to get Sturridge but doubt we,ll get him!!
