Latest Update On Ryan Taylor

Ryan Taylor is close to getting a return to the first team squad, but it will not be tomorrow, and Ryan will play his third comeback game at Whitley Park on Monday afternoon in their U-21 Premier League game against Brighton and Hove Albion, which kicks off at 1:00 pm.

Ryan Taylor – getting close to first team return

Ryan has suffered two serious ACL injuries over the last couple of years, and in the summer of last year he was operated on by Dr. Richard Steadman at the surgeon’s  famous clinic in Vail, Colorado, and it looks like the operation was a success.

This is what Alan Pardew has said about Ryan Taylor today:

“Ryan Taylor will be fit, but I don’t think he’s ready to be involved in this game yet,” “He will play on Monday in the U21  game and get a full game in that.”

“He hasn’t really played a full competitive game yet.”

The 30-year-old can play in many different positions, and of course he’s a specialist at free kicks, and we haven’t had that in the side since Yohan Cabaye left last January, although Siem de Jong is also proficient at free kicks when he gets fit again.

We hope that Ryan can come through that game on Monday unscathed, and he’s got to be close to a first team return, and it’s a good time for Ryan to come back.

It’s been a really tough road back for the utility player – but he’s also shown tremendous guts and courage over the last 26 months or so,  and maybe you want to send him a message of encouragement to his Twitter account.

It will be like having a new player,  when Ryan does return. 😀

    You have a habit of playing players when they should be nowhere near ready to play a game, don’t you, Alan?

    Risking a player out of desperation to save that salary of yours. Idiot.

    Even when he is fully fit, surely he should be no more than back up to the back up. The fact that he is being built up as a superstar is more evidence of the plight we find ourselves in through the combined folly of all those at the club, Ashley through to Pardew.

    Unfortunately, that is how low we are at the moment. Terrible man management and the selling of our best players has made us this shite. I would say that our strongest finish with this team with pardew in charge is 14th. And that is without injuries…

    I agree, I said it earlier that Ashley will act when he acts. I don’t think Pardew will be here any longer to spite the fans if they protest, but I also don’t think protests will speed up the process. That doesn’t mean they shouldn’t vocalise their views on the appalling results and performances they have had to witness.

    Haven’t seen us getting that many set piece chances lately for Taylor to make a difference in that respect anyway.

    Pardew doesn’t have us playing the sort of football that generates them
