Monday To Friday We Beat Ourselves Up – Ryan Taylor The Hero


Alan Pardew seems to be getting to terms with what it means to be the Newcastle United manager.

Ryan Taylor – the hero’s in the middle there

It often seems that Newcastle lurch from one crisis to the other, and of course a week last Friday Jose Enrique finally got his wish, and left for Liverpool,  and then let everybody know he felt sorry for the Newcastle fans.

The powers that be at Newcastle seemed to be unwilling to come up with the money to get a top new replacement in, and would you believe  it,  but it was left to the man who was playing out of position at left back, filling in for Jose Enrique, who was the hero for  Newcastle yesterday.

Ryan Taylor is a first rate professional, and he again showed his great skill, when he rifled in a beautiful free kick with his right foot, to win the game for the Magpies after 62 minutes.

And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy, and Ryan is on the fringes of the Newcastle first team, but today he is the toast of the Toon.

Add to that something Newcastle couldn’t do last season,  a clean sheet against Sunderland, and suddenly things don’t look quite as bleak as some people, like Jose Enrique as one example, would have us all believe.

But it is the spirit of the players that have gained Newcastle 4 points from the first two games, and their two gritty displays and two good results  have also lifted the spirits of the Newcastle fans.

Manager Alan Pardew is just delighted with the good start to the season so far:

“To get four points from our opening two games, with clean sheets in both is a real achievement.”

“We’ve got some new players in the side but we’ve not lost that spirit because there were times when we had difficulties and we came through.”

“Monday to Friday, we beat ourselves up, that’s a tradition at Newcastle, but Saturday is all about the game and I thought we were magnificent.”

Newcastle were outplayed in the first half yesterday, but like good teams do, they changed things at half time, and were good enough in that second half to get a great win.

Things are surprisingly looking up, at least right now, and all we need is for two top players to be signed this coming week, and wins on Thursday at Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup, and against Fulham at home next Sunday afternoon, and some of us may be in orbit.

It’s tough being a Newcastle United fan, very tough in fact, but it’s wins like yesterday, that somehow set the Newcastle club and their fans  apart.

It was a fantastic win yesterday, there’s no doubt about that, and things are looking  up on Tyneside, and long may that continue.

Howay The Lads!!

    Despite a solid performance from Raylor we still definately need a new left back… Also with Ferguson coming back from injury will be great to see what he can do this season as at the end of last season he was looking a hot prospect.

    Tiote hasn’t been poor, he just hasn’t been as good as we know he can be, just been average. I think this is because of several reasons

    If hes fasting then that is a factor. He also missed the last 2 friendlies and hasn’t played in any behind the scene games or reserve games so he’s probably not match fit and needs the first 2-3 games of the season to regain that. I suspect he’ll start against Scunthorpe just to gain match fitness. Then on Sunday vs Fulham he should be back to the Tiote we all love! Yesterday in the 2nd half he showed glimpses of that. He broke up the play quite a few times and then played it simple.

    Although we got 2 good results, lets keep our feet on the ground. Form is temporary. Class is permanent.

    We must stay focused and keep it tight at the back.

    How many times last season did we drop points against teams we should have been winning against.

    A defeat at Fulham will cancel out our good start to the season. FOCUS lads!

    I don’t see it as a real achievement. Yes, its been good, but we can achieve far more than this real achievement.

    I was about to say that lol

    Watch us go and lose to Scunthorpe and draw against Fulham now! This stuff happened so much last season after a few good results, hopefully our mentality has changed!

    Would anyone make Ryan our first choice RB when we get a new LB in? He is on par with Simpson in terms of defending but offers so much more going forward which is why I would give him the nod.

    anybody else here pardew after the game, on the bbc interview, somthing along the line of ‘we are after a left back, but he will have to be very very good to get ryan out of the team’ he better not use this as an excuse not to spend, thats the feeling i got

    Lads,
    Having been to both games i am not sure what to make of Cabaye. I thought he was gonna hold the ball and give us the guile and cunning we were lacking. But he actually looks like a little bulldog. He looks like a British midfielder.He really got stuck in yesterday,which was nice to see.

    I think Ryan Taylor possess some of the best free kicks on the planet and we are lucky to have him playing for us.

    Ryan Taylor is a free kick specialist who scored a very good goal but could have very easily have been sent off for the elbow incident which everybody seems to have over looked.

    Being honest both Ryan and Shola should not be in the first team however because Ashley is reluctant to spend any cash we have to make do woth what we have and in the long term this could be detremental to club especially is we end up in a relagation battle.

    I don’t know why we sold Routledge as he is playing out of his skin for Swansea and did so for QPR while on loan.

    I understand why Ashley is reluctant to spend however the truth is we need a LB and CF despite him wanting to reduce club debt.

    At a guess we will possibly end up with Davide Santon and Daniel Sturridge on loan in the last few days of the transfer window, however I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t sign anybody in which case I’d put Nile Ranger up front because despite his attitude, (it’s better than Balotelli), he has a great deal of potential and has the ability to unlock defences. I also firmly believe that when he starts scoring his confidence will increase as will his ability however if we continue to hold him back he will be wasted and sold on for next to nothing.

    elapso geordie – you cant judge Cabaye yet or any of the new players.

    Remember how bad Enrique, Collo and even Nolan were when they first came. It takes foreign players especially time to settle in, Tiote hitting form from the start last season was an exception.

    I think Cabaye will settle in and prove to be a very good player for us as will Obertan and Ba.

    Should’ve kept it to yourself then.
    Cabaye was the player who made the most tackles in the league when first round was over.
    Yesterday he was a contendor to MOTM.

    I cannot belive you are being serious.

    Have to agree with everyone else. We have 2 clean sheets now and no coincidence that the 2 CM players have tackled like lions. Our midfield is so hard working now and Cabaye has been relentless in both games so far. Yesterday he looked absolute class. Don’t know how it looked on TV but when you see him for real his work rate is awesome. At one point he hit a 50 yard clearance and was the first one to get to it to put pressure on. Man of the Match for me just ahead of Colo, Jonas and Joey

    @Premiership Manager

    Selective memory? I cannit stand some of the stuff you’ve said. You say Ryan Taylor and Shola shouldn’t be near the first team, yet Routledge is playing out of skin??? What a load of tosh. Taylor and Shola are MUCH better players than Routs will ever be.

    Ryan T – I used to rate him very low. But, since Pards has come in, he’s been our most improved player. Against Bolton and Chelsea last year he played CM and he played VERY well – before he got sent off. At LB, he’s been solid in 2 games this season, 2 tough games. Yes, he’s a fringe player, but don’t do him a dis-service.

    Ameobi – yes, he had some poor touches yesterday. Yes, he should’ve been onside and scored that header. BUT, he’s slaughtered them (and other teams) over the years, and he battled his @rse off yesterday. We know his flaws, we know his faults, but howay – bask in this and stop putting him down. Wayne Routledge didn’t hold a candle to either Raylor or Shola.

    You’re having a laugh yeah?

    2 games in the Prem and he’s settling in. He had 1 great shot yesterday and a solid, battling first half. Was off the pace towards the end, but that should be expected.

    What are you looking for? You’re aware that real football isn’t like PES or FIFA aye?

    I bet elpaso_geordie is happy to call Cabaye whatever – but also blind to Tiote’s mistakes.

    I get the feeling he’s someone who prefers to read blogs and watch highlights on youtube rather than watch the games and form his own opinions!!

    i think cabaye is gonna be a steal at 4.5 mil or wt ever he cost. i think he seems like a gentlemen, a role model professional and an inspiration on and off the field. all that stuff apparently with joey b and at arsenal he got straight amongst the arguments and stood over Barton when he was on the floor protecting him. he is obviously not gonna be up to prem fitness yet but look at some of his passes and his vision ! and not to mention he was close to netting a 30 yarder or sommit yesterday. in fact he is the name i am getting on me top.
