A player that will always be remembered for regularly sticking the ball in the mackems’ net, if he doesn’t achieve anything else I know a few hundred thousand people who would happily swap places with the local lad and boyhood Newcastle United fan.
Newcastle’s weakness would arguably be the full-back positions. Taylor provides assists and scores some good goals, but he’s not the quickest and, if played at left-back, could be a good target for Theo Walcott. Danny Simpsons on the other side is nothing special either.
At just over 6ft, Swedish 19 year old John Guidetti has been linked with a move to Newcastle. WIth 18 goals in only 16 matches for Feyenoord he is hot property. Maybe the hint of a bit of Shearer, watch this cracking goals video and make your own mind up.
