It was Taylor's goal in last summer's qualifier against Atromitos which set the club away on a run which has taken them to the last 16 of the competition.

The full-back injured his knee in the return leg and has not played since, though he is targeting a return next month.

And a 0-0 draw in Russia last week has given Taylor every hope Newcastle can finish the job against Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday and book a quarter-final spot.

He told the club website: "Anzhi is another tough test but the lads picked up a good result in Moscow.

"Hopefully I can be the one who started it all and I'd love to play some part in it towards the end - who knows, maybe in the final.

"It's the only trophy we've got to play for this season so I don't see why we can't have a go.

"It does seem a long time ago when that first free-kick went in right on the stroke of half-time to get the ball rolling for the European campaign, but I watched all the group games, home and away.

"It's a good journey and I'm sure the lads are enjoying it, and with the knockout stages you've got to field a good team if you want to progress."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
