Bloody hell, now he's linked with Arsenal and Vila.

 

Will this farce never stop?

 

<http://www.mirrorfootball.co.uk/news/Aston-Villa-target-Newcastle-defender-Steven-Taylor-article127845.html>

 

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is ready to make a £6 million raid on Newcastle United for England Under-21 centre-half Steven Taylor.

 

O'Neill has been looking far and wide for a new defender since losing Martin Laursen and selling Zat Knight and his scouts believe Taylor has qualities to replace both.

 

Taylor has been chased by several clubs this summer but none have met the Toon's valuation - and now Villa will try to tempt him away from Tyneside before the window shuts as the pressure grows on O'Neill to buy.

 

O'Neill has cash to spend and the fans are demanding signings in a hurry, with Taylor certainly in his range and budget if he reckons the deal is ultimately good value.

 

Taylor has impressed for the Under-21s and made a name for himself, but his form has been mixed for Newcastle during their last year of troubles.

 

O'Neill thinks he can bring out the best in Taylor and will try to land him as part of a major signing push in the next few days.

 

Villa chief O'Neill made a personal check on Wigan's Austrian star Paul Scharner at the weekend and is still keen on him if the price is right - despite being part of the side mauled 5-0 by Manchester United.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to step in and snatch Steven Taylor from Newcastle, hijacking his proposed switch to Everton.

 

The versatile 23-year-old, who is predominantly employed as a centre-half is believed to be high on Arsene Wenger's wish list. The Gunners boss has added Belgian international Thomas Vermaelen to his squad, but is keen to recruit further reinforcements.

 

Taylor is thought to be close to sealing a switch to Goodison Park, officials at the Merseyside club are waiting until the sale of Joleon Lescott is complete before giving the green light to David Moyes to land the former England U21 man.

 

But this delay could be exploited by Arsene Wenger. He can move straight away for Taylor, and the lure of Champions League football could be enough to persuade the player to chose North London over Liverpool.

 

A fee in the region of £8million is believed to be the figure needed for The Magpies to release one of their most prized assets, and Taylor is known to be keen to return to The Premier League as soon as possible.

 

Bullshit!

imo Taylor will be off like a shot to one of the better prem clubs if a deal's agreed. I doubt this chat about being 'forced out' is genuine, any footballer wants to advance his career. What sticks in my craw is that we have to sell him rather than Coloccini because no-one seems to want him at the price and wages demanded.

£22m fee agreed for Lescott (which is comical) but we should he looking to agree an equally comical fee for Taylor if Everton do want him. Just goes to show how stupid we were in our negotiations over Given. Hold out for half an hour or so and Man City just lose their minds.

What would piss me off is his constant super fan bollocks then fucking off when the going gets tough (tough being playing in front of more fans than Everton and Villa get and being paid £30k plus a week to play for the club you supposedly love). If it were me I would say no I'm going no where. Even if the club said that they couldn't afford to pay that sort of wage I'd look to try and do something with them (taking a £10k a week paycut while in the championship is hardly going to bankrupt him).

I don't expect footballers to do anything like this, we all know they're all mercanaries, but I don't think it would be beyong most true fans and if that's what he's claiming to be that's what he should be telling them.

If he does go the owner/off the field situation is his get out of jail card though isn't it?

See I've seen nothing that say's there's any truth in the reports that he's been in talks with Everton. Yet people seem keen to label him a turncoat.

 

He's putting the performances in on the pitch so until there's proof he's off to Everton or whererever, I'll hold off on condemning him.

I've no doubt that will be his excuse but it's not good enough for me. Players are paid to play and given that we've had a decent start to the season and look like we could be in with a shout for promotion it wouldn't be too much to ask for one season of loyalty from him. He's young and will still have plenty of admirers this time next year so it's not like he would be stuck playing in the Championship for the rest of his career.

Would it be for you though? Personally you couldn't get me out of the club if I were in his position. I understand players like Chopra wanting to leave when they never get a game at all but Taylor has been one of the first names on the teamsheet for a few seasons now. And we can't realistically drop him for refusing a move when we've got no one else to bring in. If he stays he plays and will get hero treatment from the crowd.

Nah, it wouldn't wash with me and agree with everything you've said. I just think that's how it'll be spun if he does leave.

And yet you have no idea what the attitude within SJP may be toward any of the saleable assets. The fat cunt may be making Taylor's position untenable. Who knows?

Captain Contrary there.

If I were in his position it wouldn't bother me in the slightest playing in the championship for the rest of my career as long as it was with Newcastle. Now I know this isn't how footballers think but it is how we do.

Without doubt and like you it won't wash with me. No doubt there will be plenty gulible enough to buy it though.

As far as I've been told Steven Taylor has not yet spoken to Everton.

 

I suspect that will change if there is no movement on ownership and the appointment of Shearer.

 

Looking at today's announcement, what a surprise. If Assley appointed anyone other than Shearer and eventually Moat is the new owner, compensation would be necessary if Moat really did want to appoint Shearer as Manager.

At the end of the day, we are back to what we were before the Halls and Shepherd, a selling club that even the local players are forced to leave for career ambition.

 

So much for the Halls and Shepherd being shite owners.

As it stands it seems there hasn't been a concrete offer for Taylor, but i think theres a good chance of at least one prem team coming calling very soon. I don't blame any player for leaving this mess, as long as they haven't made a big deal about being a toon fan, loving the club and how much it means etc.

 

If thats true then you don't leave, you have a contract and they can't make you leave, Hughton will still pick him, he won't be banished to play with the kids or anything and he's on good wages. You can't use the excuse you were forced out, its still choice.

 

However at the moment he hasn't left and is playing well so i'm not having a go at him and i hope he stays, but it seems likely he'll go with this club the way it is.
