This Brave Player Deserves Contract Extension At Newcastle

Ryan Taylor’s winning goal back in August of 2011 at Sunderland is probably the highlight of Ryan’s career, a player who has proved over the last two and a half years he has courage and guts galore, having fought back from two serious  and consecutive ACL knee injuries, and he’s back in the first team again.

Ryan Taylor after scoring against Sunderland with great free-kick

That was the beginning of the season when Alan Pardew had us in 5th place in May, 2012, and we hope after three mediocre seasons we can sign a top coach and some very good players this summer, and again challenge for a top six position – that’s the hope.

And when we meet Sunderland a week on Sunday at the Stadium of  Light then who knows – maybe Ryan can score another winning goal in the derby for Newcastle – and that would be something.

This is what Ryan has said today to Sky Sports about the upcoming derby game:

“We’ll look to get one or two bodies back, which would be nice.” It’s just where we are at the minute. We’ve just got to accept it and stick together.”

“We are a bit short at the minute.” “We’ve got a few young kids on the bench, and it would be nice to get a few senior players back, but we’ll see where we are.”

“We had Arsenal on the back foot for 30 or 40 minutes of that second half, and that’s how we’ve got to be at Sunderland.”

“If you don’t want go to Sunderland and play, you shouldn’t be here.”  “That’s the way we are at the minute,” Taylor told Sky Sports. “We’ve got a lot of players missing.”

“We lost our leader – Coloccini. A natural right-back – Daryl Janmaat –  has to fill in at center-back. I’ve been playing left-back, and I get switched to right-back.”

“It’s just where we are at the minute.”  “We’ve just got to accept it and stick together.” “We look to go to Sunderland now, and we look to go there on how we played in the second half rather than the first half.”

Newcastle have won only two games in the last twelve played this year, and it would be great to get all 3 points a week on Sunday.

And Ryan Taylor’s contract runs out at the end of June, and we’d love to see him get a two year extension and we think it would be good business for the club.

That’s because Ryan has shown his versatility in the number of positions he can play in for the team, and he’s also one of the few Newcastle players who can deliver good free kicks and corner.

And we know he can also score some goals too.

    Did he really say it’s just where we are at the moment three times, if so it seems a common theme this repeating yourself.

    Sorry but Raylor was never really good enough, glad that he’s battled back to fitness but he seems to have come back slower and his dead ball accuracy missing… ship him out, he’s been picking up his 30k every week so it’s not as if toon owe him

    OP…I think we shoud start petitioning for RunDMC’s “It’s Like That” to become the new official club song.

    Failing that, may I suggest the song to our pro-Ashley brothers and sisters.

    “Don’t ask me, cos I don’t know why, it’s just like that and that’s the way it is”….at the moment.

    Truth is, deep down, none of them gives a rat’s. Why should they? Nice run out through the week, back to their mansions and XBoxes. Have a crap 90 minutes. Quick interview and back home to the luxurious fortress with a big satisfied smile on the inside. Because they don’t have to care. Not really. Just look a bit sad and concerned for the fans occasionally. They’re well coached in that respect. Yes, it’s tedious, but it’s nothing new.

    Sentiment aside, he doesn’t really deserve a contract UNLESS it’s a pay as you play one.
