Incredibly Upbeat Interview With This Newcastle Player

4:25 pm, Sunday, February 7th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 222 Comments

Steven Taylor has a very good game for Newcastle yesterday and that was impressive especially since t was his first appearance for Newcastle since late August when he played the full game in the 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

His experience and great heading ability could make a huge difference for us in the run-in to the league, but the main thing is to keep Steven fit.

Steven+Taylor+Newcastle+United+v+West+Bromwich+oVD4I_6BrDXl

Steven Taylor with goalscorer Mitrovic after win

This is what Steven Taylor has said on the Newcastle web-site today:

“I’ve got my buzz and my swagger back. So far, so good. I feel like a million dollars.”

“I was out in Qatar for a week in January doing the final stages of my rehab and that was a huge help. When I came back I told the head coach I was ready and hungry.”

“I’ve had to sit patiently. I’ve found myself out of the team, but I’ve got my head down, grafted and waited for my chance to come.”

“Today I was back to where I want to be, playing football for Newcastle United. There is no better feeling.”  “Coming into the game, there was pressure on our shoulders because there is a lot of frustration at the moment.”

“But we started off fantastically, we controlled the game with our possession, we made them run a lot, they were frightened with what we had going forward, and I thought we looked solid at the back.”

“From Mitro all through the pitch to Robbie, I thought everyone worked so hard and played their part.”

“We still need to finish our chances but we got the goal, controlled things and saw the game out well. We kept a clean sheet and everyone crawled off that pitch because it was a great team performance.

“It was a job well done.”

There’s an upbeat Steven Taylor for you – but as we said earlier we hope he can stay fit

That’s the main thing with Steven, who is one of the few players along with Fab Coloccini who played in the relegation season of 2008-2009 and then we came straight back up from the Championship in the next season.

Steven’s contract ends in June and it could be the local lad is in his final season at Newcastle United.

Steven joined Newcastle when he was just 9 years old back in 1995 and he made his debut in 2004 under Sir Bobby Robson.

Comments welcome.

    And by the way, can I have a new deal please?

  • 3 toon kk // Feb 7, 2016 at 4:54 PM

    It’s accurate passing and pace we just can’t handle, we turn into headless chickens and every player we have looses confidence and we end up getting hammered.
    We got to learn to play our game and not give the ball away so cheaply.
    We got two examples of our play in our last two games.

  • 4 mattyNUFC // Feb 7, 2016 at 4:58 PM

    finally watched the first half and was able to honestly vote for MOTM, and that undoubtedly was Jonjo Shelvey. That’s the Shelvey we need, and in order to keep his performances on par, he needs a Tiote or Colback there to lay deep with him. Saivet has played well but to say, as some people have, he was the best of a bad bunch the last two matches isn’t really doing justice to how pathetically everyone played as a whole.

    anyway, onwards:

    If coloccini is a 1 in 6 player, Janmaat is a 2 in 3 player, and yesterday was one of those matches. Great game and 2nd in MOTM for me

    next Mitrovic (for the first 60/65 mins). incredibly important to our game

    Tiote played well but not as well as many working making out. solid game

    Lastly, Townsend. What to say, really. He had some good movement but if i’m blunt, he’s an English Obertan. Can run, has pace, excellent work rate, but he’s never going to set the world alight on a consistent basis. Obertan is very frustrating and I like nearly everyone else, became increasing fed up with his erratic decision making. I truly believe in time many fans will place Andros in a similar category to Oba. I sure hope he excels but he was very frustrating against West Brom with glimpses of promise, and it was a pretty pathetic debut at Everton.

    Overall, a great great watch. Oh, and Stevie Taylor was great. Macca should just not allow him to train, as it’ll be between another match or two that he picks up an injury during training.

    And what the hell is the use of having a goal machine on the bench when we’re lacking in goals? Doumbia is doomed to end up like another of our miserable loanees, unfortunately. sad to see, yet again.

  • 5 Lindisfarne // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:07 PM

    Team to start against Chelsea:
    _________Doumbia
    de Jong___Shelvey___Sissoko
    _______Tiote___Saviet
    Aarons__Collo__Taylor__Janmaat
    __________Elliot

  • 6 carl // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:07 PM

    It’s a real worry for the rest of the season that we only scored once against that shower.

    I can’t remember the last Premier League team I saw who were so devoid of skill and intent as that lot. Foster seemed to waste as much time in the last 20 minutes as he did in the first 20. Pulis came for a 0-0 and didn’t change tactics when they went behind. Not many away fans which given you had to watch that garbage was understandable. Pulis was very sullen and that said a lot of a team just going through the motions.

    Yes but not you Tsunki.

  • 13 geordiemark // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:17 PM

    I wouldn’t play Sissoko again he offers nothing to the team and only showing up to make sure hes in the French squad for the euros that is all and if any club wants to hand over 27 million for this garbage id snap there hands off

  • 14 geordiemark // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:18 PM

    I wouldn’t pay 20 million for him more like 8 million tops

  • 15 geordiemark // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:20 PM

    I would be in for foster end of the season good keeper, I would let krul go think Elliot has earned the goalkeeping jersey

    Man u 1 up at Chelsea, great goal.

  • 17 Thump // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:24 PM

    @toon kk: I don’t remember him getting a shot off. Come to think of it, I don’t remember him making more than one pass either.

  • 18 JamesToon // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:25 PM

    Would anyone take Sturridge in the summer instead of Berahino. Top 4 class striker when fit

  • 19 hibbitt // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:28 PM

    JamesToon
    but never fit….. should be perfect for us

  • 20 Toon Tang // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:32 PM

    So why do we perform so bogus away from home then people. Is it Mcclazza setting us up to fail with lack of tactical oomph. Or is it our players such as gini and soks just don’t like being taken from thier comfort zones?

  • 21 geordiemark // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:32 PM

    JamesToon

    like you said james its his fitness end of the day and there shouting about 30 million don’t think hes worth anywhere near that price id pay 15 tops

  • 22 hibbitt // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:32 PM

    toon kk:
    Berahino was never in the game overweight and not fit not worth 10 bob on yesterdays performance !!!

  • 23 toon kk // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:33 PM

    Geordie and Thump
    Maybe it was for the best we didn’t get him not at that price anyway. Maybe he just needs to get away from WB. he’s MA type though, one for the future.

  • 24 geordiemark // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:34 PM

    hibbitt

    I think really he set his heart on joining us so didn’t preform at all to prove it

  • 25 Toon Tang // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:34 PM

    Baffled.

  • 26 Thump // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:42 PM

    @toonkk: In all fairness, he hasn’t been playing a lot and WBA were awful yesterday. They did look more dangerous but I think that was more Rondon’s presence than Berahino.

  • 27 Jail for Ashley // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:48 PM

    You and Ian etc have been reporting me for years now, might back fire on you, you fruitcake !

    Just for the record, as it is ALL on record:

    Mister Tuff // Feb 7, 2016 at 1:45 PM

    Carl what is your relationship to Ian Toon?

    ——————————————

    carl // Feb 7, 2016 at 1:51 PM

    Tuff
    I do not know Ian Toon at all and have not to my knowledge ever met him. I do see him as a good though infrequent contributor to the blog.

    —————————–

    carl // Mar 25, 2013 at 12:14 PM

    I do not know Pushy. I went to the same uni as IT and I got him part time work whilst he was studying. We have not met up for around 18 months although we correspond from time to time as were in the same line of business. You can take whatever line you wish but for me IT remains inviolate.

    Like I say, just for the record –

  • 29 JamesToon // Feb 7, 2016 at 5:58 PM

    Hibbitt

    I don’t think that’s fair on Berahino, he’s playing in a system that he’s not suited to at all where the ball bypasses him most of the time and has hardly been played, I think he had every right to want to move in january

  • 30 carl // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:03 PM

    The difference is that when away and things don’t go well we let our heads drop. Wijnaldum looks a different player away from home and we need to match sides in midfield otherwise we get swamped . McClaren needs to be more imaginative with his substitutions and timing. We should play a 4-3-3 and not with 2 DM’s.
    Another team is going to get dragged into the relegation battle but if we can start on the front foot and create chances at home, why does a side built to counter attack fail so miserably away from SJP?

    Jail
    You’ve challenged me a few times when I come on the blog. I’m fed up with it.! Ed is the best one to sort it out it’s not a question of me reporting you and Tuff but hoping you’ll carry out your hunt elsewhere. Nothing personal but stop as I like an occasional chat on here and without your aggression.

  • 31 Goofy // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:04 PM

    Was West Brom that bad or did we stop them from playing? Imho we dominated the whole game, not giving them anything. Not getting the negative comments about it being a boring game. That’s the best we’ve played this season.

    Townsend looked really good yesterday, nice touches, pace and quick thinking, to compare him to Obertron is nuts. The only thing they have in common is pace, Obertan is thick in a football sense, (don’t know him off the park) Townsend showed a lot of promise and hunger, Obertron looks lost.

  • 32 Jail for Ashley // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:05 PM

    MacToon,
    We’ll start calling you Colombo I think. I remember that post but thought they worked in IT together. Unbelievable, how long can he go on denying this ?

  • 33 Belfast // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:07 PM

    Could you complain about the artful spammer Tsunki while you’re at head office Carl ? Thanks.

  • 34 Jail for Ashley // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:07 PM

    carl,
    I have suffered more than most from yours, Ian and sack Llambias hate campaign, you talk about bullying yet you have invented a gang to do just that. You don’t know Ian but got him a job ?

    Go ahead. It’s not me and although it was almost 3 years ago I think I would have remembered. Do I need to add MacToon or was he just an incidental.

  • 36 Jail for Ashley // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:10 PM

    carl,
    You went to the same Uni ? as a teacher I presume as you claim to be in your sixties while Ian romances of times had by his elders.

  • 37 Jail for Ashley // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:11 PM

    A different lower case carl, the worlds full of them !

  • 38 Mister Tuff // Feb 7, 2016 at 6:12 PM

    Carl said earlier he was waiting for a report from Ed, and then following a question, said he had reported someone.
    I can only assume he has reported himself for being a multiple and has thrown himself upon Ed’s mercy.

    MacToon has done a sterling research job -finally revealing evidence from the horses mouth about who are the multiples – that will be alongside all the lies and deceipt to folk on here.

    Tell the truth and you do not have to remember lies.
    Lie – and unless you are incredibly intelligent – you will eventually fall foul of your web of lies and get mixed up – as has occurred today.
    A good day for the blog and hopefully an end to Alpha Dogs shenanigans, deceipt, bare faced lies – should reduce the rows on here.

    Carl – keep us updated with the report you are awaiting from Ed – I hope I do not sound doubtful if I suggest we’ll hear nothing more on that front.
    A bloody good day for the blog!

    I’m watching for any outlandish infiltrators and Multiples ..I have asked ED To publish details of all the multiples ..

    The blog seems a cleaner worthwhile site right now ..decent comment prevails well apart from the usual wums ..but at least they are Newcastle Wums

    Toonsend was attracting a lot of Shithouses and taking up a lot of bandwidth..

    That bin dipper walkout yesterday was most impressive. It got the publicity it set out to get but sadly it probably gifted a point to Scumderland.
    Should we be in a position closer to the end of the season where we are doomed to relegation no matter what results we get (hopefully not) a similar exodus from SJP would make sense.

    I do agree though, an organised group effort does have a strong impact.

    Not you as we’ll! Courage is the most important of the virtues. So playing scrabble with more than 3 letters and writing plain English makes me guilty by association. I had you down as a normal poster not a neurotic extreme or just mischievous type. I bought into Ibiza (Back By Popular Demand) request not to seek to score cheap points .
    I do not know Pushy. I went to the same uni as IT and I got him part time work whilst he was studying. We have not met up for around 18 months although we correspond from time to time as were in the same line of business. You can take whatever line you wish but for me IT remains inviolate. He’s not at all like his 3 critics portray him but great company, great fun in a quiet sort of way( IT you can send me the £ 20 you promised). The poster with two names( the one with the elasticated waistband and Indian background) and an elderly poster
    mate constantly abuse me when I come on line hence the I am owt. This derives I am told from Duncan Bannatyne and was used by Ruddy. I will persevere on here but my patience is not endless. Just ask yourself wouldn’t you prefer quality football chat than the inane endless tedious drivel some dish up! The lecture is over. Phew!

    You have always seemed to pull in a bit of abuse from those who think ashley is doing a good job. I try not to get involved in who is multiple, and who is not, but in this case it was easy to prove that the 2 incarnations of carl were one and the same (inCARLarions?) 😀

    Mactoon , hello, I was really pissed at Toonsend reading all the replies to his crap he was just feeding off it all, and then he outed himself when he bit at a comment I made when chatting to Tuff..so the colo character give himself away ..

    Just a theory… I think mcca wants to redeem his self and return to managing England once more. He focused on buying proven English players and bid so hard for Berahino. The reason he don’t train Staylor (as someone suggested) is because he’s too old to get him England level. Wants to have as many England squad players to make his chances better. Don’t blame him though as long as he doesn’t overlook what is best for the club. On Staylor he is a great player, I have seen him have bad games before but I have never seen him have a bad attitude…too bad he didn’t get CPT as he was hoping in previous seasons. Hope he finishes his career with us strong.

    It was making me feel hackie just reading through all the childish pathetic comments, with the only agenda by the perpetrator/s from S/land being to spoil it for all, and bring it down to their idiotic level .

    Spoof. At the risk of starting a riot, I am going to say that I still have hope for Mcca. I have seen plenty of games where we dominated this season only to come out with nothing. That is due to not having a consistent striker. I am giving him two Doumbia games before I rule him out.

  • 108 Jib // Feb 7, 2016 at 7:48 PM

    My opinion only, but with what we have we should be doing much better than what we are, that for me is a poor manager, where I will give him credit which could be vital for the future is that he does seem to have changed the transfer strategy have reduced Carr’s influence which is great as both were shocking but sadly I don’t feel that he is the right man to take advantage of the good work that he has done

  • 116 Ibizatoon // Feb 7, 2016 at 7:53 PM

    Llort Muw tested this out for him last month (January 6) and he had escaped moderation an hour later.

    Whilst it’s a welcome change, I find it hard to thank or champion anyone for spending the funds of a club which has to pay it’s own way.

    The past 2 windows are merely trying to rectify the mistakes (or plan) of the past 8 years. Progress? We’ll see.

    Not sure on Berahnio. Looked some player before, but since his deadline day screw up, he’s not had much of a chance to show what he’s about. Has he lost it or just not getting the opportunity?

    You’d have thought for £20m +, you’d be able to get more of a sure thing.

    When will Newcastle fans get the chance to see new boy Seydou Doumbia?

    The on-loan AS Roma striker is eligible to play after being handed his visa last week.

    Fitness is the issue as he has not played since December and Newcastle are desperate to give him some quality game-time.

    He is not in a position to start a game yet and with the match so tight against West Brom, McClaren did not want to risk losing three points.

    Had Newcastle been two or three goals up in the closing stages there’s every chance Doumbia would have been handed his debut.

    Instead, he is likely to play some time in the reserve game against Stoke City on Monday night at St James’ Park (7pm).

    And that could put him in a position to make his Premier League debut at Chelsea on Saturday.

    I thought he said he was fit and ready to play from the word go when he signed ??Strange

  • 162 VanToonMan // Feb 7, 2016 at 9:02 PM

    I don’t see how fitness will improve for Doumbia unless he gets game time on the pitch – it’s the same notion that applies with Berahino.

    Having said that I kind of do see were Mac was coming from on saturday – the game was finely in the balance – I think he would have loved to give doumbia his debut with 20 odd mins to go – but our players (particularly Wijnaldum and Sissoko) did not put the ball in the back of the net more often.

    If we were 2-0 or 3-0 up by 70mins (which we should have been) – then he would have got game time.

    As for Steven Taylor – no doubt about it he is a solid CB when he plays – yes he is injury prone – usually in training so I think we should treat him like Spurs did with Ledley King – don’t let him intensely train during the week – light training and he only plays matches.

    Given that we are away – my team for Chelsea:

    —————————Elliot————————–

    ——————-Tiote———–Shelvey————–

    Sissoko—————-Wijnaldum——–Townsend

    ————————–Mitrovic————————

    Just gone through his range of passing in the match. I think he will make a massive difference in games to come.Looking like a top buy !

    I hope the rumours circulating in our interest for Sturridge are just that…Rumours .

    I don’t know if you were mocking Taylor or not.
    But last season when we beat Chelsea 2-1 at home the back 4 was :-
    Janmaat
    S.Taylor
    Coloccini
    Dummett

    When we lost down there 2 – 0 the back 4 was:-
    Janmaat
    Coloccini
    Williamson
    Dummett

    Costa played in both games
    One other difference
    Tiote played in the first game.

    Disney? Ah… So a happy ending is to be expected.

    I thought it would have been on the horror channel with our away performances this season.

    But really… What channel because I can only watch on bt sport.

    Maybe… Lol. Yeah, 10 brownie points for you sir.

  • 191 manxpie // Feb 7, 2016 at 9:33 PM

    jib i don’t know wat ya on about where have i mocked taylor?
    jazzy aye i said i wanted him months ago (shelvey) so very happy we got him plus he’s still young so should have his best yet to come
    on sturridge the only way ashley would saction that deal is if it was pay as you play and that would mean sturridge would be shopping in lidl within a year!

    Hello?! Who are you again? Least favourite wum? It’s a shame that you see me as just that. But if I was a so called ‘wum’… Why would I want to be a favourite? Your logic is bemusing.

    It would be nice to have another Englishmen aboard,But at £30 mill I think there is bigger and better players around.

    I can see us losing around 6-7 players come the summer. So yet again a building process will be needed.

    Sorry if I gave the impression I was accusing you.
    That’s why I said

    because on this blog you never know

    C’mon lass, who are my ‘alter ego’s’?

  • 201 manxpie // Feb 7, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    aye and with our record with injuries sturridge would be a nightmare infact he’d just be brought down to the knackers yard and shot
    the way things have gone so far it looks like we should have at least 70 mill to spend if we go on the 150mill over 3 windows reports that seems to be right so far
    we obviously need to stay up ofcourse but we could have a very very decent squad by the end of it

  • 202 manxpie // Feb 7, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    jib nah i was on about it being interesting to watch them both as they are both wums on the football pitch
    i like taylor and think he is a good defender problem is his peak years have been ruined by injuries

    there are a few out of contract apart from mbabu Aarons the rest can go

    think we will sell tiote sissoko cisse
    problem is we need to bring in 8 10 players into the squad cant see it happening

    He’s just going to shrug and give you the finger.
    It’s what they do. This blog is a soft touch.
    Folks like Davies can live with the anti-Newcastle football chants he posted.
    But, boy, are they never going to side with you.
    And you know why.

    as we are spending big bucks at the mo on english talent anyone reckon forster would come back here?
    can see krul being sold when he’s at his peak so we would need one

  • 215 BandB // Feb 7, 2016 at 10:09 PM

    I don’t think Forster did much wrong here.
    Two young lads going for one job is a winner takes it all situation.
    There was no shame in letting him seek another chance elsewhere, and no u-turn involved in taking him back if Krul was sold.

  • 216 YoungMagpieFromBurnley // Feb 7, 2016 at 10:11 PM

    You going to answer my question BandB? Or just continue to ignore my existence until it suits you?

    Hi guys. Didn’t see the game. can anyone give me a brief summary Hiw dud arrons play as l.b . Really hope we find a place for him on the team. Did Doumbia get a rub out. Was tiote good. I was at the Sunderland game in a field. There such a poor side. I can’t believe we keep losing to them

    what would forster sell for now

  • 221 Jib // Feb 7, 2016 at 10:16 PM

    As ex headboy of RGS I’ve always thought Fraser would return.
    However he’s 28 next month , first choice at Soton (with a chance of making the England squad)
    His lass is from Derry with a London based business , so there’s no draw to the North East. 🙁

  • 222 sing in the corner // Feb 7, 2016 at 10:17 PM

    I wasn’t happy about selling Forster to Celtic for £2million. Way too cheap I thought at the time..
