Ryan Taylor sidelined for 12 weeks.

I’ve written quite a bit recently about our rather long injury list, so on that basis, the news that Ryan Taylor will be out for 12 weeks seems quite topical at the moment.

The club have confirmed that the utility man will be missing for three months due to suffering ankle ligament damage in a training ground collision with Sol Campbell.

Even though Taylor hasn’t really featured this season, apart from in the Carling Cup of course, it’s still a blow and further reduces the pool of players available to Chris Hughton. Taylor was touted around by some fans as a replacement for the suspended Joey Barton before the weekend game against Fulham, but there were hints that Taylor had picked up an injury back then, although I didn’t expect that it would be an injury that would keep him out for so long.

Chris Hughton said: “It’s very disappointing to lose Ryan for this period of time.”

“Although he hasn’t played as much football as he would have liked, he has been a very important and valuable member of the squad this season.”

There isn’t really that much else to say on this to be honest, but I am starting to get alarmed at the amount of injured players we are carrying. I understand that injuries are part and parcel of football, but it always seems to me that Newcastle are near enough at the top of the injury table.

Still, I’m not a doctor so what would I know?

  1. Way, we’re a lot better off than Spurs, Villa and Manure, so I guess we should count ourselves lucky.

    Especially when you consider one of our 5 injured players was brought in in that state and we always knew he wouldn’t feature til the end of the year.

  2. Toonsy, this injury situation happens nearly every year for us but at the moment apart from Ben Arfa it’s noone really significant in my eyes. I just can’t wait if we stay up this season and then build on it with; Krul, Coloccini, Enrique, Tiote, Gosling, Barton & Carroll forming the nucleas of a very good team :D

  3. Shame about Raylor; may need Saylor in there as backup for Simpson instead for now. Not the end of the world, but he can hit a damn fine dead ball, and is easily the best thrower-in that we have. Now if only he could defend as well as Simpson, we’d have a complete player!

    Not the end of the world – just edges us that much closer to an injury crisis rather than into one – but gutting for him anyway.

  4. sub standard player in my opinion, to say he can take a good corner or a decent throw is missing the point, there his only attributes!
    Only shame here is that we probably won’t be able to sell him on in Janurary if he isn’t fit. Not trying to have a go, however he is hardly the future like is he?!?

    2mil for Raylor
    3.5mil for Tiote

    we’ve come a long way since we’ve singed Raylor like.

    “2mil for Raylor

    I thought that Ryan Taylor was a part exchange in the Insomnia deal, I Love Mike, so it’s hard to put an exact figure on what we paid for him.

  6. your right he was, was just guessing he was around that much, but he was valued at around that at he time, so point still the same

  7. “Although he hasn’t played as much football as he would have liked, he has been a very important and valuable member of the squad this season.”

    What he was really thinking whilst his lips were moving. ‘Im not really bothered, he’s not in my plays at all, Kinnear signed this player not me, at least I don’t have to justify leaving him out for 3 months, damn it will be harder to get rid now in Jan, he said he wanted to move, damn blast!’

  8. Apparently you can add Kazenga Lua Lua to that list now too.
    As he too has a broken leg !!!
    More joy please
