Great News – Ryan Taylor Tweets He’s OK

It seems that  world-famous American knee surgeon Richard Steadman was at the game today at St. James’ Park to watch Ryan Taylor in his comeback game in the Premier league, but it all ended  sadly for Ryan – after he had been Newcastle’s best player in the first 30 minutes of the game – and he had to leave the field.

But Ryan has  just tweeted on his Twitter account – he’s OK – so that’s great news.

Ryan seemed to hurt his right knee again and he was unchallenged when it happened, and it seems the knee was feeling uncomfortable and didn’t feel quite right –  so he wisely left the field.

Apparently the American surgeons who did the operation – we assume that was Dr. Stedman – came down to the field as Ryan was coming off and they accompanied him to hospital.

But great news just posted by Ryan on his Twitter account – he’s OK and there’s no damage:

Thank you all for your positive messages. I appreciate them all, just to let you know I have no major problem and I had to come off today.

Just to be on the safe side, I was just gutted to come off,  that’s why I got so emotional as I’ve worked so hard to get back. Thanks again.

We assume the results of the scan are in – and they show no damage.

This is what a worried Alan Pardew had said immediately after the game:

“We are sweating, the surgeons were over here from America to see him and have gone to hospital with him. “He feels uncomfortable with his knee so the win is tinged with sadness.”

“He was pulling the strings before he went off.”

Ryan had looked very good in the first 30 minutes, and his deliveries from set plays were very good – something that we have missed since he’s been out with the two ACL injuries.

Ryan tested QPR goalkeeper Green twice with good efforts before he had to leave the field.

Ryan went off quickly – and walked off the field – so that was very smart for him to quickly come off – and there seems to be no damage to the knee.

Newcastle will need to be very careful the way they bring Ryan back into the fold, and maybe some short sub appearances are the best way to go?

And to cap off what has been another great day for Newcastle United – Ryan Taylor is OK.

    Ok, great to have him back, seems a much more influential player, a far better player really, but need more durable players in this squad, to go with this increasing depth, quality and potential. That’s an area we clearly need to improve on.

    He be great at the CM position, his freekick was good – something we missing the last 2 seasons.

    However he need to compete with Abeid and Tiote on that position

    I think it’s time for NCU to sell Tiote at a reasonable good price. Abeid and RTylor are good enough (don’t forget Anita) to support the midfield along with Sissoko and Coleback. And, NCU can buy another holding midfielder like Tiote from the market at a lower price. Personally, I would want NCU to sell Cisse as well. Cisse doesn’t have the similar aggression of Ayoze or even Armstrong.

    If a crazy bid comes in for the 29 year old Cheik, that’s one thing. But anyone who thinks we do not need the quality and squad depth Tiote gives us is quite honestly nuts. Let Charnley and Monster Mash worry about our balance sheet. We just want good players. In a week when we’ve lost Abeid and Ryan Taylor we should vote to sell Tiote??
