Ryan Taylor must be one of the unluckiest players in England, after picking up a serious ACL knee injury in August of last year, as he was getting ready for a return to the first team, the terrible news broke that Ryan had suffered yet another ACL injury.

What a goal!
This time Ryan went to the world’s expert on knee injuries - Dr. Richard Steadman – whose Steadman Clinic is located in Vail, Colorado, because ACL I njuries happen a lot with skiers, and Dr. Steadman has performed surgery on former Magpie strikers Michael Owen and Alan Shearer in the past.
Ryan flew to Colorado on 16th May and was then operated on and then stayed on at the Vail clinic after the operation, to ensure everything was in good shape.
It’s very difficult to come back from one serious injury, never mind two in a row, so we want to let Ryan know the Newcastle fans are right behind him.
You can let Ryan know you support him via his Twitter account – and Ryan is active on that as he prepares for the long, long road back to playing again in the Newcastle first team.
There;s nothing we’d like better than when Ryan Taylor comes on that field again wearing the new strip.

This is what Ryan tweeted just a couple of days ago:
New 13/14 season kit, gutted that I probably won’t get to wear it, my time will come again #BeStrong…
Ryan is a terrific guy, and not too bad a player either – let him know you support him through what will be some very difficult months ahead.
