Steven Taylor has had an almost non-existent season at Newcastle, as far as first team appearances go, and after starting at the Etihad Stadium in the first game of the season, Steven managed to get himself sent off just before half time, to make a bad situation even worse, and he hasn’t played in the first team since then, and over the last six games or so, cannot even make the bench.
Steven Taylor – some big decisions to make
Along with Shola Ameobi, Steven has been one of two local players who came though the Youth Academy, and have played regularly for Newcastle over the last ten years or so.
And there’s news that Joe Kinnear is offering a new contract to the player he always rated highly, when he managed Newcastle back in our promotion season.
And last season Taylor was playing so well that he was called up to the England squad, but didn’t get his first cap, but now Steven is considering where he stands at his local club, and may even go out on loan next month, and Harry Redknapp of QPR is already interested.
The news is that the 27 year-old is talking to Newcastle about his future, and there has even been talk of a permanent move away from Newcastle, but we’d be surprised if that happens next month.
It’s better that he get some first team football for the rest of the season elsewhere, and then come back in pre-season and fight for his place.
And at that time if things look as bleak as they seem to look at the moment, that may be the time to think of leaving his home town club to get first team football elsewhere.
But rash decisions shouldn’t be made next month.
