Same. Seems a decent bloke and he'll do well somewhere. I'm sure a decent Championship side will take him on.For me the 2 goals last season at Bristol City was akin to Blackstock scoring against the same side all those years before. The importance of those victories shouldn't be underestated. Taylor has always come across well and articulate, hope he gets a decent move this window.
I guess I'm just not convinced that same player is still there.Last place I want him to go is Derby - I still remember the Lyle Taylor that tore us (and many more) a new one for Charlton, and who scored that brace at Bristol City that went a long way towards where we are now.
There's a good championship goalscorer in there. Not for us perhaps, but how many times as a club have we bought in a striker with a decent record to watch then fail with us? Lots I'd say. He was a Sabri signing who never really got to play under him - could have been a different story.
And that's fair - my earlier response was more to the call of him being an embarrassment, which I think is harsh.I guess I'm just not convinced that same player is still there.
Ultimately - he's about to turn 33, wasn't included in the 25 man squad, has a contract about to expire in the summer, and hasn't played a competitive game since May last year. In that scenario, I'd expect a player to be desperate to leave and to have been talking to the club through November and December, with a view to signing a loan deal somewhere dead on January 1st - the sooner he can get involved with a first team the sooner he can get back up to match speed and stand a chance of making an impact somewhere this season. Yet so far at least I don't think there's been any credible rumours of anything.
Taylor was a victim of circumstance. If he’s still here next season and not on the squad then you may have a point.Suppose it makes sense he's starting to put a shift in, needs to find himself a new club in the summer.
Mental that he was a bit part player last year, we get promoted, he gets a raise and spends this season having his weekends off.
We wanna talk shite business, him and Arter are up there.
Exactly that. He's always come across as a team player. Same as Cafu. They all bought into the project and tried to work hard for it.Though Taylor contributed on and off the pitch last year, I've got nothing against him getting this season in the sun and his promotion bonus. He scored some important goals and didn't seem to be a problem when he dropped out of favour. He has some good initiatives off the pitch and wish him all the best for his next move.
