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

Taylor slammed: Cacapa called in

One thing you can put to Big Sam is that he certainly doesn`t mince his words. Speaking today about Steven Taylor he launched a damning verdict of the youngster`s recent performances and told him to 'up his game`. After the tucking he called on Cacapa to help the youngster improve:

'He will be very frustrated at the moment but it's not about me dropping players, it's about players dropping themselves. They played crap at Manchester City. If you play that badly, you're likely to lose your shirt. Players have to realise that one poor performance can cost you your place. He needs to be able to read the game. You can't rely on your physical qualities to get you out of trouble. He's got me and Nigel Pearson here to coach him and we were two ugly bastard centre-halves, so that helps.

However, the perfect example for Steven to watch would be Claudio. What me and Nigel can show Steven on the training ground, Claudio can do in a match. He's not as quick as Steven, he's not as young as Steven, but his brain puts him in positions that mean he can nip the danger in the bud before the forward has even got there.'
