Video: Steven Taylor is zany, charismatic and smart

If you can’t sleep, watch this video:

Either Taylor is so thick and humourless he doesn’t even know what a sitcom is (unless he mishears the question, in which case he’s still thick and humourless); nor does he have any concept of the phrase ‘guilty pleasure’. Jesus Christ on a bicycle.
When the Newcastle defender is prompted to name a sitcom, he parrots the interviewer and answers ‘Only Fools and Horses’ – of course, this is the stock answer that all English footballers give to that question, because footballers have very little imagination. In Taylor’s case, zero imagination – he likes Ronan Keating, for feck’s sake.
Just as well Taylor didn’t have to say what his favourite book is. That would have been embarrassing (‘What’s that then?’); almost as embarrassing as Taylor equating Newcastle’s relegation with the end of the world. Or admitting that Dumb and Dumber is your favourite film.
Did I say humourless? Sorry Steven, for a moment I forgot about this… 

I take it all back.

    I really do not understand the growing popularity of personal criticism of many footballers. Surely they are paid to be atheletes not exciting personalities? Sure, Taylor is hardly a livewire in this interview (which he did, even though he would probably have rather not have), and maybe he is “thick” with “zero imagination” – in which case he’s done rather well to have secured a job earning as much as he undoubtedly does. Why not criticise his very medicore performances on the pitch, rather than off it?

    Come on Kazim, it’s the silly season. When Taylor is back playing football, then I’ll criticise his play, if necessary. Relaaaaax.

    shut up Kazim. Steven taylor is clearly a sad, boring person regardless of whether he is a footballer or not
