Fans React On Twitter To Steven Taylor Being Released

12:37 pm, Friday, June 3rd, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 28 Comments

Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter and reacted to Steven Taylor being released, when his contract ends at the end of the month.

Steven was black and white through and through and was  ball-boy at St. James’ Park during the Kevin Keegan years in the 1990s.

But he has been struggling over the last few years with both his form and his many injuries, and it was a good time for Steven to leave his home town club.

Here are some of tweets Newcastle fans have sent out on the news.

    Rangers is a good shout, big club, half decent wages and a standard he would shine in but can he stay injury free.

    Be nice to see one of our own leading the line again. This is the future. 😉

    Thirteen years, will he get a testimonial? He should share one with Shola at least it won’t look so bad if not that many turn up, although I think there’d be about 35K if it was for them both.

    Still no contract for Rolando Aarons!?? That makes me nervous. We definately can do with Aarons as he has bags of potential. He will no doubt get lots of games in this league too. Come on Rafa get him signed up.

  • 5 Hail Wor Ashley // Jun 3, 2016 at 12:51 PM

    HALLELUJAH!

    He’ll no doubt land on his feet somehow, can see him at Hull with Steve Bruce.

  • 6 Nufc-83 // Jun 3, 2016 at 12:55 PM

    Jib I am not sure what that story has to do with Anything regarding the post but the simple fact is you are massively deluded if you think we can sign players of that stature.

    JP Aaron’s apparently has another year on his contract which is why there is no rush.

  • 7 Rotonda heights // Jun 3, 2016 at 12:58 PM

    Bobby,

    would much prefer to see Arma running in behind, than just lumping it to that snail of a loon mitro, who couldn’t hit the proverbial.

  • 8 Rotonda heights // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:01 PM

    jail

    in those 13 years how many games did he play, probably adds up to less than a 3rd.

  • 9 Jib // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:02 PM

    Nufc-83

    You can call me deluded all you want.

    I don’t know how old you are.

    It was the 1st November 1994 I’m sitting at a pavement café on the Gurturbay Kalea on the way to the old Estadio San Mames in full Toon favours. I cannot tell you how many Athletic Bibao supporting Basques came up to chew the fat with me or how many free drinks we were offered on the way to the match.
    We were back among the big boys in Europe thanks to KK.
    There’s no feeling like it !
    Deluded meh !
    With Rafa we are back in the swim !
    If we sign either of the 2 players I mentioned be prepared to have your nose rubbed in it big style !

  • 10 WLtoon // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:13 PM

    Rafa aint messin about, getting rid of the dead wood sharpish. Id like to see Aarons tied up sooner rather than when his contract expires , he will be a huge player next season if he stays fit.

  • 11 Bobbybee // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:16 PM

    Rotunda, you just have to look at his movement to lose a marker and his clinical finishing to realise he’s way, way better than anything else we have at the club. The fact that he can score from anywhere helps his cause a lot. Clearly his strengths are his pace and his reading of the game – and finishing power of course. He’s got everything he needs to make it right to the top and i can’t see Rafa not realising that as well. A superstar in the making.

  • 12 Jail for Ashley // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:18 PM

    Rotonda
    212 so on say 40 games a season just under half but the last three seasons have been shocking!

  • 13 loonie-toon // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:22 PM

    It says on sky sports app he was offered one contract but turned it down

  • 14 jimmysmith // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:26 PM

    If he was offered another year, he should have taken it. For the club, to be honest it’s neither here nor there.

  • 15 Mister Tuff // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:29 PM

    Looks like only Aarons and Woodmans’ contracts have not been sorted out yet.
    Apart from Mbabu everyone one else whose contract expired this summer have been binned.

  • 16 Jail for Ashley // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:30 PM

    Jimmy,
    Just my opinion but if he has been offered a year it’s just been a token gesture that they knew he wouldn’t take.

  • 17 SPRINGY // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:37 PM

    afternoon all
    right time for taylor to leave if not a little late but wish him well…pity his talent never matched his commitment and passion for the club.
    also great to here that mbabu has had his contract extended for a couple of years….things seem to be moving along at the club now.

  • 18 SPRINGY // Jun 3, 2016 at 1:43 PM

    it sounds like taylor has been offered a longer contract else where,meaning more money,so financially probably makes sense…it works out good for the club as well as they will have to bring in young talented fresh blood to replace him…..or promote from within if there is any players good enough.

    Gonna need a fair few players coming in this summer

    Interesting views on Benitez from a Liverpool fan

  • 23 Our Toon // Jun 3, 2016 at 2:07 PM

    Rotunda

    Suprised at your hatred for young Mitro mate, he’s only 21 and should never have been leading the line alone, having said that he didn’t have a bad season for one so young and playing his first season in a tougher league. 9 goals in his first season in the prem in the worst attacking team in the league prior to rafa joining. Yes he missed some sitters but he also won us some points and lost his head at times, all things you’d expect from a kid plying his trade for the first time in a much tougher league

    In all reality he started less games than Ayoze Perez in his debut season and scored more league goals than Ayoze did both this and last season, Perez is a player you rate as well. I for one hope Arma steps up as next season will be a bigger challenge for him against better defenders, as for Mitro he’s younger than Perez and both still have a lot to learn, wouldn’t like to see either of them leave.

  • 24 Shadow_Shearer // Jun 3, 2016 at 2:23 PM

    If we didn’t need a new centre back before this news, we definitely need one now.

  • 25 Mister Tuff // Jun 3, 2016 at 2:34 PM

    See FIFA HQ has been raided again. News is that Blatter, Valcke and Kattner in the last 5 years awarded themselves bonuses and pay rises totalling £55 million.

    Greedy thieving scumbags.

  • 26 bettyswallocks // Jun 3, 2016 at 2:36 PM

    Our toon …….. I have to agree with you on Mitro. The lad is still coming to terms with English football and is inclined to try too hard to impress which has made him snatch at some of his goal scoring opportunities . He has more qualities than inadequacies and is always fully commited , sometimes overly so. He is still young enough to improve and a season in the championship with plenty of goals can only help to develop his confidence and maturity.

    The fact that Rotonda has condemned him as not fit for purpose can only be a positive and will work in his favour. Rotonda’s judgement and predictions on all footballing matters are more often than not proved wrong.

  • 27 Dont look in my fridge! // Jun 3, 2016 at 2:56 PM

    Deserves a testimonial i my opinion. A club man through and through.

  • 28 dannitoon // Jun 3, 2016 at 6:13 PM

    I never criticise a player who isn’t good enough,that’s down to the management who pick em… I do however criticise players who don’t try their best.. regardless of his performances no one can ever say Saylor didn’t give 100%.. I’d much rather watch him that ££££ grabbing mercenaries.. good luck Saylor.. you served us well
