Ryan Taylor – He’s Got A Brilliant Attitude


Ryan Taylor has been one of the unluckiest players in football over the last almost two years, when he suffered a severe ACL knee injury against Atromitos in August of 2012, and then last April when he was almost ready to return to playing again, he picked up another ACL injury in training.

Ryan Taylor – on August 20th, 2011
After scoring sensational winner against Sunderland


That’s so unlucky, but fingers crossed – Ryan will be fit and ready to go in early July –  when pre-season will start.

The 29-year-old has been working with the Newcastle U21 side, where he is able to pass on his experience and expertise to the youngsters.

Certainly Peter Beardsley is thankful of having Ryan’s help, and Peter had this to say on nufcTV:

“Ryan has taken a real interest in the reserves, and obviously he is injured at the moment.” “I would think you would probably see him more and more.”

“He loves it. He’s a big help to us because he plays the game, and he can give the kids his knowledge.” “He has got a brilliant attitude, as we all know, so it’s a pleasure for us to have him with us.”

Ryan was signed in January of 2010 from Wigan during our promotion season, in an exchange deal involving Charles N’Zogbia, who went the other way and Newcastle also got £6M in cash in addition to Ryan.

Ryan is a very popular player on Tyneside and he’s played 91 times so far for Newcastle with 10 goals, and some of those have been great – especially from free kicks.

The most famous of those was the winner at the Stadium of Light in August 2011 against Sunderland, when he scored in the second half,  direct from a free kick.

We hope Ryan can get back in the side for next season, and we need his free kicks – with Yohan Cabaye having left the club.

Comments welcome.

    I was forgetting that Ryan Taylor was on our books. I suppose now that Cabaye has left, he is our best set piece taker again.

    On last article…

    Santon cant cross with his Left foot. He is weak defensively. Dummet, haidara or mym are better left backs imho.
    Santon for me should be back up RB, or even used sometimes as a winger.

    Raylor is not going to displace Debuchy even in his prime and I think I’d rather see M’Biwa at RB if Debuchy is out
    Personally I always thought of Raylor as a squad player who was good at set piece deliveries – rest of his game was fairly average imo – I doubt he’ll reach that peak even when fully fit as the ACL injuries means he’ll have lost a little pace

    That’s what everyone said about Williamson!! Raylor is a very good player that control the game and IMO I would rather have him in the team than Santon.
    Sometimes you have to have players that can do a job and Santon in my opinion does not know if he is a LB or a Winger hence why he gets caught out,

    I’m in trouble on here for being too negative but I just tell it like I see it. The idea of giving Ashley more time after 7 years of his bollocks does bother me I must admit. He’s not going to change and we’re not going to be any more competitive than we are now as far as I can see. He feels he has the balance right now. One in and one out as long as we get more for the sale than we have to spend for the new player, his wage, and his agent’s fee. That will never work. And our commercial revenue is a total joke as many have now pointed out.

    Did I say Harrumph yet? Ryan Taylor? A good lad apparently but after such a serious knee injury will he ever fully recover? Not young anymore. Probably never a starter from now on. We have far more pressing matters to deal with Ashley.

    I am ok for chicken blood. I could do with some finger bones to forsee his future though. I can never get enough pins. The size of ashley and therefore the resulting rather portly voodoo doll means i have a lot of suface area to prick

    Nobody understands you like I do Markaccus. Your budgie fetishes. Your voodoo dolls. Your secret rooms. Your love of Ashley. Your trilby. Your magnificent chest hair and flared nostrils. You are a truly powerful presence on here. Did I mention your aura is awesome today?

    What’s that about Ashley being a prick Markaccus mate? Oh and it was G who asked you about Binky. Don’t confuse him with G2. I have a number, he doesn’t (he’s quite jealous).
