Shock News On Ryan Taylor

There’s a report in the Chronicle today that Liverpudlian Ryan Taylor could be on the bench for the game with Leicester City on Saturday.

Ryan Taylor – suffering his first ACL injury in August, 2012

Ryan has come through two games since his latest comeback from his two ACL knee injuries, and it would be a massive boost for Ryan of he is on the bench on Saturday, and it could also be a massive boost for Alan Pardew and Newcastle too.

Ryan suffered his first ACL injury in late August of 2012 in the Europa League tie with Atromitos, when he was carried off with the knee injury.

And then last April during his first comeback attempt, he suffered another ACL knee injury, and he was operated on in that summer by Dr. Richard Steadman in Vail, Colorado – one of the best knee surgeons in the world..

A training ground source at the club’s Benton base said this to the Chronicle:

“Everybody is delighted to see Ryan back on his feet again.” “He’s worked so hard to get back in contention.”

“It would no surprise if the bench and the fans rose as one to applaud when he gets back on to the first team stage again.”

“He’s a cracking lad and he will deserve such an ovation.”

This could be a huge boost for the team, and we can only think that Ryan is playing very well in training,  because Newcastle have said they are not going to rush him back.

But even if he doesn’t make it on the bench on Saturday, he could be on the bench for our next game at White Hart Lane a week on Saturday.

This is great news for Newcastle and great news for the courageous Ryan Taylor too.

We should hear more on this from Alan Pardew during his news conference today, and it will be like having a new player when Ryan returns.

    Cracking lad but not a cracking player 🙁

    Watched Ivory Coast game, cracking! 1-3 down, with ten players and they do an NUFC style (!) comeback to bring it at 3-3 (watch Kalou’s amazing equaliser).

    Of course, it was bound to happen. Congo hits them with the sucker punch in the last minute, 3-4.

    Tiote: played 90′ good game.

    At least He can take A decent free kick and corner.

    Good to see him back, we need all the help we can get at the moment.

    On the last thread, it would do us a big favour if Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire don’t qualify for ACON.

    As much as them not qualifying or it being cancelled might help our situation I cant in good grace wish for the lads not being able to play for their country when it will mean a lot to them…. No wait….. Yeah I think I can actually if it means we stay up

    That comeback against Arsenal was a one off under Pardew’s guidance – never to be repeated that’s for sure.

    He apologised to Ashley saying that fan excitement and entertainment were an oversight on his part when the players forgot their instructions and it wouldn’t happen again.

    Raylor has had his share of bad luck and injuries. Tubby-old Sol Campbell put him on crutches when scything him in 5-a-side training, and two ACL ruptures after that.

    Netted that beautiful free-kick v the Scum.

    I guess Haidara will make way for the senior pro because he’s younger. Taylor hasn’t played for two years and wasn’t any good before the two big injuries, I dread to think what he’s like now. Luckily for him, talent is irrelevant under our manager, as long as you try your best.
