When players have serious injuries they tend to get forgotten about, and it’s really hard to come back form a serious injury like an ACL knee injury – but the good news is that Ryan Taylor has been training regularly over the last few weeks and could be ready for our next game at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City.
Ryan Taylor after scoring great goal at Sunderland
Can he do it again in a few weeks?
Ryan was injured in the home game against Atromitos in August, and that was the start of a number of injuries to Newcastle players which has wrecked our season because of the squad we started with was far too small and owner Mike Ashley and Managing Director Derek LLambias had admitted that.
And Ashley spent around 18M in January to bring in five excellent French players and we should be fine for next season, and the aim this summer is to bring in three purples – three top first team players.
It will be food to have Ryan back for the last few games of the season, and of course Ryan can get us a goal form a free-kick, and he and Yohan Cabaye are by far our best takers of a free kick just outside the box.
But Ryan will need to fight for a p;lace on the bench, with the standards at the club having been raised in January, with the strengthening of the squad.But it seems Ryan will be ready for the game against Sunderland at St. Jame;s Park on 14th April, and that’s a must win game for us, and maybe Ryan can get sus another goals – like the tremendous free kick he scored with at Sunderland last season.
Haris Vuckic is our other long term casualty, but he is not scheduled to return until mid-May so that’s the season for the young Slovenian, and he will be ready for pre-season.
