Taylor says sorry (again)

Having been celebrating the winner against Sheffield United last weekend it`s the opposite end of the scale for this week as Steven Taylor apologies for his and every other Newcastle players` performance on Saturday. In what has become a quite tedious weekly occurrence it would be preferential to see some of our players doing a Paul Scholes and keeping their traps shut:

"It was a disappointing performance from everybody. I'm absolutely devastated. The first-half performance wasn't us at all - we couldn't get ourselves going and I don't know why. Portsmouth created more than we did - we just didn't create enough. For the first goal, I was trying to get in front of Benjani. I stood on the ball, and he got away and scored a goal. From then on we didn't get back into the game. We didn't play like we did at Sheffield United, or against Arsenal last weekend. We made it difficult for ourselves, and our own mistakes cost us. It's another blip, and we can't afford any more of those.

The fans pay a lot of money for their tickets, let alone the travelling. There's always a great turn-out, and I felt for them. They see us week-in, week-out, and they expect us to perform. We didn't do that, and we owe it to the fans to give them something to cheer about in our last four games.'

Has the press man at Newcastle lost his job? Maybe Taylor is moonlighting? At least he has the time to stop and speak I suppose, half our lot walk straight off the field after losing and into the nearest car showroom to celebrate.

Fair play to Taylor for at least acknowledging us.

At least the kids got heart - I don't see bramble coming out and facing the press after every rick he makes. He just hides away in his X5.
