Big Sam`s keeping Tayls

Having been subject to the whole Liverpool and Spurs rumour mill since the rejection of a new five year deal a couple of weeks ago Big Sam has come out and stated his desire to keep Stevie T at the club. Speaking to the media yesterday he said:

'Steven Taylor is a key member of our squad. We want him to stay, apparently it sounds like he wants to stay, so hopefully we can resolve the problems. At the moment, we seem to be some way off, but we won't get sucked into paying somebody that we think is asking for too much. We want to give it a realistic look, and we have already started that process with the likes of Charles N'Zogbia, to push on to Nicky Butt and people like that who are in the last year of their contracts.

That's the next thing we have to do now that the window is shut. Hopefully very shortly, everybody will have agreed and we will have a much more settled camp. From my point of view, it's always a little bit disturbing when people are talking about contracts while you are playing Premier League football. It can upset the player on the field, and that's the last thing we want.

The position is that we offered what we considered a very good contract for a player of his age and his experience, and if they have turned it down, then that's fine. The disappointing this is - and I don't want to get into any slanging matches - is that it was publicised in the papers, and I think that was wrong by his father. But I will cover that when we get sat down to talk about it again.'

Err, this doesn't say that he's staying. it says that Sam's offered a contract for what 'he feels the player is worth' so basically he won't be held to ransom. Also the use of the word 'apparently' when talking about the players desire to play, means that there is either a question as to whether this is true of Sam hasn't spoken directly. I still think he'll stay, but he's a good player and there will be teams sniffing around. Spurs won't be alone in their admiration, they (and liverpool for that matter) just have two things that help: an admiration for english players and cash. Still a nice distraction from the nervousness leading up to the North London Derby. Looking forward to it, in the same way I did meeting the future inlaws for the first time - in both cases there was/is the capacity to go completely tits up after the weekend. COYS
