Ryan Taylor Completes Third Comeback Game And Scores

Some good news today that Ryan Taylor has completed his third comeback game – this time for the Newcastle U21 side against bottom of the league Brighton – , and the Newcastle side won 3-1, after going behind in the first half.

Ryan Taylor – another game under his belt

The game was played behind closed doors at Darsley Park in Benton, and it was Ryan who scored a penalty just before half time to level the scores, and the deliberate hand ball saw Dallison-Lisbon sent off.

Ryan then provided the corner early in the second half that was converted by Haris Vuckic,  and the scoring was completed on 60 minutes when Barlaser scored.

And after 75 minutes Brighton were reduced to nine men when Danny Pappoe received a straight red card – so it was not a good day for Brighton Reserves this afternoon.

This was Ryan’s third game back after two serious injuries,  and his first competitive game for the Newcastle U21 side after he has played in two friendly games against Carlisle United and Burnley.

Ryan’s not only looked fit but looked in good form too – so it remains to be seen when Alan Pardew will bring Ryan back into the first team squad – maybe Sunday at Tottenham?

We think Alan will want Ryan to have more competitive games before he brings in back into the Newcastle first team squad, and the Newcastle medics and physios will be very careful that he is not rushed back in any way.

It will be a huge success for Ryan when he does finally return to the Newcastle side, and he’s likely to get a terrific ovation at St. James’ Park the first time he gets onto the pitch again after being out for over two years with two successive ACL knee injuries.

Newcastle U21: Elliot, Ryan Taylor, Satka, Williams, Gillesphey, Barlaser, Bigirimana, Gilliead, Vuckic, Roberts, Ferreyra
Subs: McKinnon, Mbabu, Olley, Kemen, Heardman

Here’s Ryan’s twitter account if you want to send him a message of support for all the courage he has shown over the 26 months.

    He’s another one to bulk the squad up as there’s a few tricky games coming up.

    I guess our players are relatively safe from that happening. You have to score goals in order to celebrate.

    “Lee Clark’s departure can hardly be viewed as a major surprise. They have won only one home game in the Championship since 1 October 2013 – that is 24 games and counting. It was their away form that saved them on the final day of last season, and it is also points on their travels that holds them a point above the drop-zone now.

    That’s an absolutely woeful stat. Even Pardew would be proud of that one.

    I’ve heard that’s the kings next objective. Very likely to succeed.

    Clark could teach Pardew a few things about losing.

    Can only think they couldn’t afford to pay him off or something, because they’ve been terrible for most of his time there.

    A lot of people were touting Clark as a potential successor for AP? Not sure how I feel about that. His Huddersfield record was outstanding, but his Brum record is appaling? Perhaps he’s a Steve Bruce? Every other job goes ok?

    Birmingham have made 45 mill on player sales since Clarke took over and he has only be allowed to spend 400.000 on two player all other signings have been loans or frees. He has done an amazing job under the circumstances.
    Mashley would love him.
