'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Summarising the Player Chunter - Part 3

In the last section of our summarised player power quotage, two of the English lads, Steven Taylor and Kevin Nolan, have their say on the complete mismanagement and abysmal status quo at the club.

Kevin Nolan:

'One thing that I have noticed since I come to Newcastle is that everything is public knowledge - I find it very weird. The fans need to know what the conclusion of this is. For them to be hearing the ins and outs of the sale of the club is driving them crazy. They'll go potty. We've got fantastic fans, so I hope they will stay as patient as they can with it.

It's a tougher situation for everybody. Chris and Colin have come in and done a fantastic job - it's a weird situation for them. It's a week-to-week thing, but we hope it'll all be sorted. We want somebody to make a decision - it's unfair on the players and the staff. To be fair the players have been fantastic, and done what was needed to be done.

We'll continue to keep our heads down. In the next week, we certainly want to know what is going to happen. We would prefer to know whether Mike Ashley is going to keep it next season or not or whether somebody is coming in. Then, we start getting ready for the Championship.'

Steven Taylor:

'We need a manager in as soon as possible. We need things sorted out. Not having a manager and having a chairman who wants to sell the club - it`s not a situation that we want to be in. Every day we pick up the papers, it`s something new. We just want something to happen as soon as possible. I`m sick of seeing our name in the 'papers for the wrong reasons.

The football club is like Big Brother - there`s always something going on. It never has any stability and it needs it. I`m sure the next manager will manage to do that, we just need him to take over as soon as possible. I want Alan Shearer to come back, absolutely. He`s the right man for the job.

It`s been the worst summer of my life. I haven`t been able to relax and enjoy myself because it hasn`t really sunk in yet that Newcastle are in the Championship. Newcastle United in the Championship just doesn`t seem right. It was probably the worst day of my career when we went down but now we`ve got a job to do - we`ve got to get the club back in the Premier League.

We`ve got some difficult games at the start of the season, we`ve got to be strong and stick together through these difficult times. At the minute we need stability, we need a manager and we need to know who the owner is going to be. I`m still here. I`ve got two years left on my contract and that`s all I can say. Unless Newcastle sell me, I`m a Newcastle player."
