Newcastle celebrate Ryan Taylor's goal away at Atromitos in August

Newcastle celebrate Ryan Taylor's goal away at Atromitos in August

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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
