Steven Taylor is one of the few Newcastle players left, who had to go through the relegation season four years ago, and we’re sure he doesn’t want to go through another relegation this season with Newcastle.
Steven Taylor – we expect to do well
Steven was interviewed in the Evening Chronicle today and this is what the top defender had to say:
“I am confident in my team-mates.” “I look around the dressing room at the players and who I train with every day – and what I am sat around is top-class.” “This definitely makes me believe we are going to do well.”
“We are not looking down – we are looking up.” “We are looking at who we can catch and chase.” “If you look at the games we have coming up, Benfica twice, Fulham and then Sunderland, we are excited.”
“In the next few weeks I am looking to see this all wrapped up in the Premier League and hopefully we can look forward to the Europa League.” “Nothing went for us and our game plan did not pay off.”
“We absorbed them but we did not put them under enough pressure.” “A little one-two around the box created the first goal and got their fans excited.” “Then we were on the back foot in the first half.”
“In the second half the gaffer wanted a reaction and changed things a bit.” “For the first 15 minutes in the second half two good chances were created.” “If we had got a daft goal it would have put them on the back foot and you never know what their fans are going to be like.”
“I was hoping we were going to get an early goal in the first half because their fans can go against them and make it difficult.” “For us we have to write this game off and make sure there is a massive reaction.” “The players have to get themselves recovered well and put in a performance.”
With QPR losing 3-2 at Fulham tonight, it makes it very difficult for QPR to now avoid relegation – since they are now 7 points behind 4th bottom Wigan with only seven games to play - it’s certainly possible but not probable.
And Loic Remy missed a penalty in the second half, although he did score QPR’s second goal after his miss, and Fulham were 3-0 up after 41 minutes.
