Ryan Taylor Does The Job For Newcastle


Ryan Taylor is one of the best professionals at Newcastle United.

Ryan Taylor – great goal today

So it was great to see Ryan score the winner in today’s important derby game at Sunderland.

Taylor brilliantly curled a right footer into the top right hand corner, from a free kick out on the left wing, and beyond the gasp of goalkeeper Mignolet.

Ryan’s namesake Steven tried to head the ball home almost on the goal line, but Steven didn’t get a touch, and the free kick went straight in.

Ryan’s 7th goal for the Newcastle  club came in the  62nd minute, and Newcastle held on fairly comfortably,  to get the win.

Manager Alan Pardew was delighted with the contribution of his utility player, whose best position is probably out on the right wing, but he played left back today, as we await Newcastle to sign a new left back.

This is what Alan said about Ryan after the game:

“His right foot is a real weapon.” “Ryan has got that, he has proved that in his career.”

“We are trying to bring a left-back in and he is going to have to be a good one to take Ryan out of the team.”

“Well done to him again.” “Ryan had a lot of pressure on him and he dealt with it.”

“He then came up with the winner and it was the perfect day for him.”

Newcastle fans will be absolutely delighted with the win and 4 points from the first two games of the season, and Pardew was pleased too:

“To get your first away win against your biggest rivals is great for us in only the second game of the season.”

“We have worked hard on our defensive unit.”  “In the first half their system of two strikers was just overpowering us a little bit.”

“But we stuck with it and did what we need to do.”  “In the second half we started creating and causing them problems.”

“In all honesty we were worthy winners.”

For the second game in succession,  Newcastle came back in the second half, after  being outplayed in the first half, and got something out of the game, and kept another clean sheet too.

While the lads didn’t play at their best, it was still a good professional display today, and certainly pleasing for Newcastle fans.

And certainly Ryan Taylor was the hero today, and good for him.

Now to get some new players in next week.

    Think Ameobi got the nod because he understands what the NE derby means – he played ok – put gosling in who should have scored

    No ifs buts about it Pardew – we DEFINITELY need a LB, so don’t try and lower expectations, we 100% need a left back and I expect fully that we’ll get one.

    NORMALLY….. i would encourage the second team to play against scunthorpe so abeid, marveux gurthrie smtih all get games and all gel together and grow as a club, like arsenal kids in cups….. BUT

    i see us as a team right now who had intensive games but played bad BUT still won!!!! Arsenal & Sunderland involve lots of running and cabye for example certainly feels it…..

    But as the players have told him, the game is alot slower and with alot of time to pass so he will get better. My worry is we will play worse teams aka fulham and blackburn and lose… and think um WHY????? so therefore i see it as a GREAT OPPOTUNITY to play our first team in the cup midweek and give them that creative freedom to have a go and gel further. (even though league 1 sides are physical)

    WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT AND THE CUP TEAM THIS WEEK COMING?

    @JackButler

    His name is JJ Hooper, here’s a quote from the nufc website on the game:

    “A JJ Hooper hat-trick on his debut for Newcastle under-18s helped Joe Joyce’s side to a thrilling victory over Chelsea at Little Benton this morning.
    Hooper only joined United the week before the game following a successful trial, but hit the last-minute winner in a 4-3 victory.”

    Transelation from Marco

    Newcastle has decided to entrust their left wing to Aly Cissokho (23) of Lyon. The French full-back is, in fact, according to L’Equipe the priority of the English club, which has discarded the hypothesis Erik Pieters (23) and Wayne Bridge (31). Newcastle would be willing to pay 8 million requested by the French club for the former Porto defender.

    Could be that he decided to join up after watching us play Sunderland?

    Cissokho is more expensive than Pieters, so i’m sceptical about this.

    And this teeth story is famous in France. We’re still laughing!

    We’re skeptical optimists mate, hehe. All in all, Cisso seems a bit more proven than Pieters, but we’ll wait and see what happens.

    @JB

    I’m not his greatest fan…

    For me, the best LB availlable in France today is Trémoulinas. For the same price, or even less.

    Concerning his teeth, it seems teeth problem are bad for a professional sport, cause it weakened the whole body, increasing the risk of muscular injuries.

    Anyway, it was the explaination i’ve heard.
