We Want Ryan Taylor To Remain Part Of Newcastle


Ryan Taylor proved to be very useful to Alan Pardew in the two years or so he was out with that terrible double ACL knee injury, and the manager sent Ryan out on scouting missions, and kept him as part of the first team squad as much as he could, to keep the Liverpudlian  involved and make his difficult  rehabilitation  just a little bit easier for Ryan.

Ryan Taylor – his knee felt uncomfortable after 30 minutes

And there was a scare on Saturday at St. James’ Park when Ryan looked so unhappy when he had to leave the field after 30 minutes,  but the very good news was that he is OK and sustained no physical damage to his right knee.

Ryan was accompanied to the hospital by world-famous Vail, Colorado surgeon Dr. Richard Steadman to have a scan on his knee.

Ryan’s contract runs out at the end of JUne, and we’ll just have to wait and see if he gets an extension to that contract,  but Alan Pardew has already decided he wants to keep Ryan at the club in some capacity past next June.

This is what Alan Pardew’s reaction was when told Ryan had said the knee was just fine:

“Thank God,” “We were all worried for him.” “And whatever happened, we wanted him to remain part of this club.” “He has already shown how important he is even when he has not been playing.”

“He showed what an asset he can be on the pitch,” “I actually thought from that first half an hour if we were going to win, Ryan would be at the heart of it.”

“The two best chances had fallen to him and when he came off, it certainly did affect our mentality for a few minutes and you could see us losing momentum.

“I could see the players were upset when Ryan went off, so I deliberately didn’t mention him at half time,” “It certainly did affect our mentality for a few minutes after.”

Ryan Taylor is a first class professional,  and a positive guy to have around – but we are also sure he would love to extend his playing career at Newcastle.

And if that 30 minutes was anything to go by on Saturday – plus his Man of the Match performance at Manchester City – and if he can keep healthy this season, there must be a decent chance he can get an extension to his contract.

We really do hope it all turns out well for Ryan this season.

If anybody deserves success this season – it’s Ryan Taylor.

    Ryan Taylor will be playing for a new contract and to make up for lost time. He’s one of many who has unexpectedly emerged. Another player whose found a resurgence in form is Steven Taylor, who seems to have benefitted as much as anyone from this extra running they’ve been doing on the training ground. A much leaner more mobile version, also playing for his future.

    Remember Guttierez saying we didn’t train hard enough, and now we have the Everton fitness trainer, and they do or certainly did run hard and fast to good effect, with a squad that always seemed to play above itself. The associated injuries are a concern. Don’t remember Everton having the same problem, in fact I think they had a very settled side. They even managed to produce without always having a recognized striker, as we are doing now. Perhaps this new fitness guy is a big part of why we are doing better.

    AP deserves credit for how our defence is playing and luckily our youngsters have grabbed the chance they have finally been given with both hands but for me personally the bigger picture has not changed at all. If we sell Tiote in January and buy a player of lesser value then MA once again reveals his true intentions for this club and a total lack of ambition. I have always maintained that AP is the type of mediocre manager you get with an owner like Ashley and I stand by that. Under investment in our squad means the wheels will come off post Christmas like last season unless Ashley makes a net spend in January of £20m plus, otherwise we stagnate again, which would be a lost opportunity again given our current momentum. What say you?

    If you’re Ryan Taylor, we want you to stay a part of our club forever if you can’t play. If you’re Jonas Gutierrez, you have caner, get out. I hate the way our club is run.

    I think it’s clearly a concern that Ashley may continue to profit by selling players at a premium to the detriment of the side, although most often it seems the players who most want the move. The hope I suppose is that with money in the bank, that he can resist the temptation and we can convince those that might want to leave to stay.

    I think considering the way we’ve lost so many good players in recent years yet still managed to put together at times very competitive sides might indicate Pardew is perhaps at least a cut above mediocre.

    Ruvio, that is apparently because if Jonas makes one more first team appearance it triggers some clause in his contract that will cost our multi billionaire a couple of hundred thousand, about the relative equivalent to the price of a season ticket to you or me. Whereas Raylor will probably be a hero until the end of the season when it will be likely he will not have his contract renewed anyway due to his dodgey knee. It is just business amigo.Nothing more, nothing less.

    That’s an incredibly absurd and insensitive comment to make. Guiterrez was loaned to norwich before he was diagnosed with having cancer because of his lack of productivity towards the team. I’m sure all connected at the club are extremely pleased jonas has beaten this horrible diseases but quite frankly, cancer or not, Jonas’ time at the club has passed. He is not a player we need to take us forward anymore.

    As opposed to Ryan Taylor who has always been consistantly solid for us. It says a lot about how the club rates him, to have faith in him after 2 years out and still have him at the club. It’s obvious the club feels Taylor, even though he’s been out a longtime injured,will be of more benifit to the team than Jonas. And they’re probably right judging by his performance against Man City and his half hour yesterday

    Jimmysmith, I respect your posts on here, always read comments personally but rarely post due to the predominance of the playground culture. My observations are that the flaw in MA’s plans from a fans perspective is that players like Sissoko, who improve at our club, will inevitably be shipped on prematurely due to two main push factors. One, they realise that MA is more interested in selling them on in order to pocket a profit than invested more money to strengthen and build a CL team around them. Secondly, they will be offerred bigger wages elsewhere, whether they are first team regulars or not. On your point about Pardew, it may be a fair assessment in the long run, but for me personally, that remains to be seen as he has had one outstanding season and several mediocre to bad ones, and this season is but young yet. For me, it is a futile debate though as I don’t think any manager who is genuinely a significant cut above Pardew would work under Ashley’s modus operandi, and so, until MA leaves, or has a sudden change of heart, we may as well learn to live with Pardew.

    The club have made no secret on their policy. Buy cheap, sell high. Develop our own. Sell on at a high profit. Prioritise top 10 position. Treat cup competitions as secondary importance.

    I see no reason why they would change this stance. I dont agree with it but they have NEVER bowed to supporters concerns.

    They have already replaced Mbiwa and Krul with Darlow and Lascelles. Expect the former to leave by the summer. They even did this using the money from the Cabaye and Debuchy sales. Do, whatever they rake in from these sales will be pure profit and go towards the running of the club and probably not improving the squad.

    They will sell Tiote by the summer and the money brought in will likewise go to the running of the club and not squad improvement. Another circa 15m quid in the coffers. They will look upon the likes of Abeid and Anita as Tiote replacements.

    I would expect Streete to go out on loan in january in preparation for him being elevated as Williamson replacement who will not be offered a new contract.

    I would expect Satka to be loaned out in season 15/16 in preparation to take over from Coloccini when his contract expires at the end of that season.

    Very little expenditure will go out and reasonably significant money coming in.

    I fully expect Man City to offer silly carrollesque money fir Sissoko as a replacement for Toure who is now 31 and on the way down. The club will sell and replace with someone very cheap.

    Get used to it guys. This is how this mob works in running the club.

    I think it says something about the way the club is now being run, that we can constantly sell our better players at high fees and bring in suitable replacements for incredibly low fees and still meet our targets of being top 10 (barring 1 season). This is something the anti-ashley mob have a hard time giving credit to.

    We will ALWAYS be at risk of selling our best players until such time we are constantly challenging for top 4 and for honours. All top players want titles and will leave if neccessary to get these. It’s a simple fact. The trick is to keep our best players for a long period of years until we achieve that top team status. Can that be done under Ashley? i’m on the fence

    Dulcinera- a player cannot be deemed ‘consistently solid’ when they have not played for any continuous length of time in the first team, let alone, someone who has missed two years back to back. I admire Ryan Taylor but the issue around Jonas is purely contractual and financial, otherwise, he would have been dropped from the squad long before he got injured.

    He has been consistent. Consitently injured. Ryan Taylor brought less to the team a year and half ago than Gutierrez. We all know that. My problem is with the fact that Gutierrez was confronting a life-threatening illness, and was told to pack his bags by the same manager that wants Taylor to remain ragardless of whether he can play.

    I’m sure Gutierrez was entirely aware he may never play again, whether or not he recovered or not. When he came back from his treatment, Pardew told him his services were no longer required. This, by any stretch of the imagination is monstrous, and under British contract law is illegal! You cannot ask someone to leave because they are too ill to do their job.

    Quality players want to win trophies mate. That is why they will always want leave when bigger clubs show interest in them.

    The likes of Cabaye Debuchy Remy Ba all left to sit on the bench and get the occasional few minutes here or there. They have all won or will win medals in the short tine since they left.

    Others will be no different. Expect Sissoko Janmaat Krul De Jong etc to follow and no power if persuasion will keep them at the club because they gave made it obvious that money matters mire than ambition.

    Expat, I think that Ashley is expert in seizing the moment in business, and I think he runs Newcastle largely as a business. I imagine Newcastle’s policy regarding transfers etc, is more likely to reflect the changing strength of the club rather than remain static. It’d be a real kick in the nuts if he just continued on as before. I’d be surprised if the fans would have it, or if Ashley needs the grief that would come with it.

    I mean nothing bad here but memories must be bad here…. Taylor was signed in February 2009, and was injured in 2012

    That was a run of around 3 years consistantly in the team. Yes he’s been injured for the last 2 years but the fact is he would still be a bigger benifit to our team than a cancer free or pre-cancer Jonas. Let’s be honest here. Jonas was good for a while at toon but all of us fans in the end got fed up with his inabilty to cross a football and his insistance on falling down after the slighest touch of an opponent. Taylor offers more abililty than Jonas. It’s just plain to see!

    Totally agree on your assessment except for one small detail and that is, the profit from player sales doesn’t go into the running of the club in reality I suspect. At some point that money from Carroll, Cabaye, etc., creates a surplus profit that should go towards paying down our loan from MA but yet that headline figure has never moved a single pound by all accounts.

    I am totally bewildered as to how you can still be on the fence. You only have to review the evidence of the last seven years under Ashley. Would you call that progress?

    You answered your own question about becoming a top team under Ashley.

    It will never be achieved if he consistently sells our better players. The anti Ashley group have every right to complain about the way he is running our club

    He clearly doesnt care about winning trophies or qualifying for europe. I thought this was the reason we all followed a football team.

    Clearly I was wrong. It is all about making the rich richer.

    By the way, I expect us to lose against Spurs in the QF of the LC because Ashley will order it.

    Im afraid you have this belief that Jonas was asked to move on as a consequence of His illness. Jonas was asked to move on well before anybody knew he had cancer, even Jonas himself. Why would Pardew want a man he deemed surplus to requirements before he had cancer, suddenly change his mind and ask Jonas to stay, just because he has beaten a disease. jonas hasn’t kicked a ball in a longtime.

    After going through chemptherapy and months and months of recovery. I Highly Doubt any chance of Jonas lighting up St james anymore!

    I’m fairly sure you’re a troll, but just to put it into perspective, Taylor has been out of the team since Alan Smith, Peter Lovenkrands, Danny Guthrie, Leon Best and Fraser Forster (who has been at 2 clubs since). So stop spouting your nonsense.

    R.Taylor arrived in 2009, made 80 appearances.
    J. Gutierrez arrived 2008, made 177 appearances.
    If you run a football club, you don’t just take ability into the equation when deciding to renew or terminate a contract. A players ability to take the field in the first place would also be a key consideration mate.
    P.S. there is nothing wrong with my memory mate.

    See, these are the same old asinine throwbacks being offered up by the anti-Ashley mob and don’t take that the wrong way.

    He doesn’t want to win trophies or qualify for europe?

    Why do people think this? It’s very easy to say he should spends millions and millions on players but it is not feasible. A team like newcastle cannot attract the highest quality footballers simply because we have achieved nothing for a lot of years and the higher qulaity player will always choose bigger clubs than us.

    People expect to wake up some day and find we have signed 30 millions, 25 million payers. Utterly ridiculous.

    The ironic thing on here is that i always get this reply when i say we’re not a top team! “oh we don’t expect to comepete with the top 4-6, all we want is a team who gives it a good go, 100% blah blah” yet these same people will say the whole point of supporting a team is qualifying for europe and winning titles and this is all that matters

    Ashley doesnt care what the fans think. His main interest is Sports Direct and not Newcastle United. How many sponsorship signs has he got around the ground? Somebody said 135. How much does he pay for the privledge? Zilch. What is the mandate for the club? Money above trophies.

    How can you honestly say he cares a jot about making this club a force to be reckoned with when you look at the last 7 years of absolute controversial decision making.

    We are an advertising money making business for his tat company which gas resulted in the company value and his personal wealth increased threefold in the last 7 years and that is despite a world wide recession and him taking some huge personal losses in that time.

    Stabilising us before raking the next step up to top 4!!!!!!!!

    I admire your confidence in the man but you really need to be realistic Jimmy.

    Ha, ha, yeah you might be right. I can see the club evolving is all, and I struggle to see why Ashley would choose to hold something deliberately down indefinitely, maybe for a period, but as a long term policy, seems a bit shortsighted and unlikely, in a proven entrepreneur. I prefer to think I’m looking at it with a guarded but reasonable optimism.

    January 2014…..Yohan Cabaye…sold for 20 million replaced by NOONE

    August 31 2014….Ben Arfa and Mbiwa loaned out replaced by NOONE

    You talk rubbish about expecting the club to spend 25m or 30m for players. Fans only want to see good players who have left replaced with good players. You dont always gave to spend big. Just bloody spend. Remember 3 transfer windows out of 4 where we didnt spend a penny on a permanent signing?

    When was the last time we spent more than 10 million on a player? Colloccini in 2008.

    He will want the fringe players to play whilst I would expect Spurs to be close to full strength.

    Nobody is going to convince me that the most surprised person at the Man City result wasnt Pardew. The team he selected that night including Ryan Taylor looked like a defeat and a heavy one at that. For some reason, they bonded, played well and got the result.

    Maybe the players wanted it more than club management.

    Battered by nothing. All i will say to you is this. Ryan Taylor is far better player than jonas Gutierrez. End of

    If Wayne rooney got injured tomorrow. And had the same ACL injuries ryan taylor had. Man united would stick by him even if it took 4 years for him to recover simply because of his abililty. Now Raylor is no Rooney and i’m not comparing the two. But you get the point.

    Now, regarding the 25 millions, 30 million players. You’ve offered another banal throwback. “Nobody mentioned 25, 30 mill players”… yet all i hear on here is Ashley should splash the cash. what do people mean by this if its not 25-30 mill players? maybe 15-20 mill players? the best players cost top dollar, how can you splash the cash on top players without spending this type of money?

    Depending on which reports you beleive, cabella cost anywhere between 8-12 million let’s say its 8! Collocini is still our record singing, are you happy?

    The rubbish talk never ends. It’s not me who expects the club to spend 25-30 millions on players. Judging by most of the anti ashley mob comments “he doesnt spend the cash” dross on here it seems like most expect this.

    Ben arfa and yanga Mbiwa not replaced? seems to me we have been doing fine without them

    Ben arfa has done nowt and Hull city and Mbiwa was usless for us. Dummett at CB has been far better and you could argue either sameobi or or cabella has replaced ben arfa. Just because we have used more fringe players and not signed players doesn’t mean we haven’t replaced “old players”
