STEVEN TAYLOR has turned down a new five-year contract

At the same time though I believe he should have enough media savvy to stop his fatha shouting the odds and slagging the club off after receiving their first offer.

 

Don't think he really slagged off the club, and are we sure it was the first offer?

 

I'm not condoning speaking to the press, but it's naivety rather than malice.

 

Also, this is an Oliver piece.... since when did we start taking his word as gospel? ;)

I think Taylor could really use a little air letting out of his head (and his testicles), but on the other hand it's hard to argue that he shouldn't be on comparable wages to Milner and Zoggy.

 

 

 

As for his father he's said little that any agent wouldn't have eventually (this idea that football agents are "professional" is bizarre, most of them are a hideous cross between 2nd hand car sales men and estate agents), and if he has now got wage parity then it was effective.

Tbf, it depends what he's been offered and what everyone else is on. Still, it goes to show how bad football has got when a player is complaining about only being offered thousands of pounds a week.

 

 

Aye in fairness it should be such a "dream job" that getting paid for it at all should really be a wonder.

 

 

But on the other hand never underestimate the human ability to get used to anything, and in such a commercial sport they will compare themselves to their team mates, not the majority of the population.

Aye, I suppose he can claim to be a man of the people all he wants, but his life is tens of thousands of pounds a week different from the rest of us (well, maybe not Rob W's) and it now shows. The only thing that really pisses me off about the whole situation is the way he's gone on and on and on about dieing for the shirt etc yet hoys his toys out the pram the minute he doesn't get a few more thousand a week.

But at least when he's done things like this he has still gone on and put everything into his performances.

I would much rather we had a player like that than someone like Luque who tbf to him didn't really complain much about his time here but then never looked like he gave a flying fuck on the pitch!

3-0 in 2005.

 

    :smoke-1:

 

A former stalwart between the sticks, Given spent nine seasons on the books at St James' Park.

 

He hung up his gloves in 2017 after a spell with Stoke City and is now trying to help Wayne Rooney keep Derby County afloat in the Championship as first-team coach.

 

Jean-Alain Boumsong

The former France international retired in 2013 having had spells at Juventus, Lyon and Panathinaikos after leaving Tyneside in 2006.

He has worked as a consultant for TV station beIN Sports and also had a spell as part of the Cameroon national team's coaching staff during Clarence Seedorf's reign.

 

Stephen Carr

In a professional career that spanned 20 years, Carr represented just three clubs - Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle and Birmingham City.

He did not follow the conventional path into coaching following retirement as many players do and instead moved to Marbella to focus on business ventures.

The former right-back also has his own clothing brand named One of One.

 

Aaron Hughes

The Magpies academy graduate did not step into coaching either but has remained in football.

He works for the Irish FA as an Elite Football Development Consultant, offering advice and guidance on footballing matters, and has recently spoken out about his view that a new national training centre would benefit the Northern Irish players.

 

Andy O'Brien

The 2004/05 campaign was O'Brien's last on Tyneside and he joined Portsmouth over four years in black and white.

He went on to represent Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United before ending his playing career with Vancouver Whitecaps in Canada.

Now 42, he works for Premier League giants Liverpool as a scout.

 

Lee Bowyer

The fight with Dyer did not spell the end of Bowyer's Newcastle days and he did not leave until June 2006, when he returned to West Ham United.

Spells with Birmingham City and Ipswich Town followed before he retired in 2012.

He is now Birmingham's head coach having previously spent nearly just under years in charge of Charlton Athletic, who he led to promotion from League One in 2019.

 

Nicky Butt

A brief spell with South China followed after Butt ended his six-year association with Newcastle and it proved to be the last move of his playing career.

He returned to Manchester United, the club he had climbed the ranks of as a young prospect, as a coach and worked in various roles before leaving in March 2021.

Butt has since taken on a CEO course and has coached at Salford City, a club he is a co-owner of alongside his former teammates from the famous 'Class of '92'.

 

Kieron Dyer

Like Bowyer, Dyer also left Newcastle for West Ham United but did so a year after his former Magpies teammate did.

Injuries took their toll on the former England international and he retired in 2013, taking on a coaching role in the Ipswich Town academy.

He left the Tractor Boys in 2019 but has since returned to take charge of the club's under-23 side.

 

Jermaine Jenas

Injury derailed the the midfielder's career and he never quite hit the height expected of him as an exciting prodigy at Nottingham Forest and then Newcastle.

He retired in 2014 and is now co-host of the BBC's The One Show, and he also appears regularly on Match of the Day.

 

Laurent Robert

Robert had a penchant for the spectacular but he struggled to find a home after leaving St James' Park and did not make more than 20 appearances for Benfica, Levante, Derby County, Toronto or Larissa.

In 2017, he returned to his former club Montpellier as a youth coach.

His son, Thomas Robert, currently represents Belgian side Royal Excel Mouscron having previously had a spell in Scotland with Airdrieonians.

 

Alan Shearer

Shearer postponed his decision to retire shortly before the defeat to Villa and went on to score add 10 Premier League goals to his tally in his final season with the club.

The Magpies legend did have a spell in charge of the club back in 2009 on an interim basis but could not prevent the club slipping into the Championship.

He has been a staple of the BBC's football coverage since his retirement and also writes for The Athletic.

 

Steve Harper

The long-serving goalkeeper is now in charge of developing Newcastle's future stars.

He was appointed as the club's academy manager in July 2021 having already worked extensively with the academy and also with the first-team as a member of Steve Bruce's coaching staff.

Harper has also worked as a coach for the Northern Ireland national team.

 

Steven Taylor

Taylor made the decision to hang up his boots last year in bizarre fashion, as he did so just days after Wellington Phoenix named him captain for the current A-League campaign.

He cited separation from his family as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic as a reason and he now works for Gulf United in Dubai as first-team coach.

 

Amdy Faye

The combative midfielder spent one season with the Magpies before joining Charlton Athletic in August 2006.

He had a brief spell on loan at Rangers whilst on the books of the Addicks and went on to represent Stoke City and Leeds United before retiring in 2011.

By all accounts Boumsong had to be held back when he got back to the changing room that day. Was absolutely frothing!

You reckon Cath the tea lady had to put down her brew so she had two hands free, or no?

I have no recollection of this. That is taking shithousing to another level, beyond the wildest dreams of Murphy or a Lascelles. 

Also, what a player Cabaye was for us.

I can’t remember much else he did, there was that absurd dive/handball/landed fish thing he did once.  :lol:

That was like shitting yourself at a dinner party but for it to be okay because the host dramatically has a heart attack and face plants the trifle before dying. All most people and the press remember is the fight between Dyer and Bowyer later in the same match.

Got his chin tested (and jaw broken iirc) from Andy Carroll for rifling his ex and then bragging about it at training :lol:
