Taylor was rotten the day.

{Ed007's Note - So was Frimpong.}

04 Oct 2020 14:41:24
To be fair to Frimpong though ed, he has been man of the match 3 games in a row and because of that is starting to be doubled up on.

{Ed007's Note - I couldn't a monkey's fart about MOTM awards, the point is that Frimpong was rank rotten today and yet people are still girning about Taylor who is improving in every game while learning a new position. Taylor was bought to play as a LB not as a WB.}

He's not powerful enough and gives it away too often frimpong wasn't great but at least he can go by opponents and wins free kicks they were queing up to boot him thought the ref was awful.

{Ed007's Note - He can win free-kicks? Jesus wept man! What does he do when he goes by opponents, hee-haw. Just because someone can run fast doesn't make them a good player, if he didn't have pace what would he offer the team in the attacking third?
Where will Frimpong play in a 3-5-2 when Forrest is fit?}

I thought Christie and Turnbull were worse which was disappointing after the latter’s McStayesque pass for the goal last week. Early days though.

04 Oct 2020 14:54:30
Ed you seriously think Taylor is improving? He is never a Celtic player in the month of Sundays, anyome who has kicked a ball knows that. To say he is improving is worrying as he cannot get any worse.

{Ed007's Note - The guy's playing out of his natural position, you don't need to have kicked a ball to know that. And I think you'll find he is a Celtic player, he's got a contract and everything.}

04 Oct 2020 14:57:21
He does win free kicks which can lead to goals when Taylor gets the ball it breaks down to often and his final ball is also suspect imo.

{Ed007's Note - And yet he's got more assists than Frimpong has. How many of our goals have came from the free-kicks he wins? People need to get it into their heads that we're playing a LB as a WB - two completely different positions that require different qualities - stop comparing him to KT and lay off the kid.
Would you ask Mikey Johnston or MOI to play as a LB in a back 4 or even WB in a 3-5-2? Maybe we should try McGregor out there again.}

im with ed007 on this one. a lot of people have to get of taylors back he has put in some good performances and some not so good. he has good stats for the season to be fair also. he has made a big step up from kilmarnock to a massive club like ours and has to attack more give him time i think he will turn out well. i like taylor defensive side he gets stuck in he just has to work on taking his man on more.

{Ed007's Note - Taylor should check his family tree and see if he qualifies for an Irish passport.}

04 Oct 2020 15:15:50
Am not comparing him to kt ed he's tidy in possession but a modern lb still has to get up the line. av backed him on here but recently he looks a wee bit sluggish imo we need better.

{Ed007's Note - I like my defenders to be able to defend and Taylor does that. Modern RB's need to defend and Frimpong is as suspect at that as Taylor is going forward.}

04 Oct 2020 15:35:20
Frimpong is not a full back Taylor is not winger sort it out then wee will see the best.

04 Oct 2020 15:43:19
taylors assists come from mcgregor playing him in on the overlap to get his crosses or cut backs in 9 times out of 10 frimpong has to beat his man to get his in, i think he's getting better and is a safe option but i think we can definitely do better for me a LB should be able to play LWB its not as if its we are asking a CM to step in there. iT seems to be the ones that like taylor who actually are the ones who are saying stop comparing him to KT i haven't heard anyone do that just because some fans don't rate him doesn't mean he's getting compared to KT. i think taylor gets caught out just as much as frimpong playing in 3/ 5/ 2 also when teams sit in as deep as they are then we need someone to beat there man frimpong does that.

{Ed007's Note - A LB's job is to defend, a LWB has to defend and do the job of a winger, if you've never played as a winger how are you meant to do that without being given time to learn the job. By your reckoning then a LW should be able to play as a LB.}

04 Oct 2020 16:07:09
Taylor is a tidy player. He just lacks pace to get by a man which gives the side a lack of balance in a 352. Hopefully we bring in a good enough LWB.

04 Oct 2020 16:44:41
No. you can't learn pace if your slow your slow.

04 Oct 2020 16:31:52
Taylor is a good honest professional, gives his all for the team. Sometimes he comes up short but who doesn't that plays for us I suspect the reason some people give him such a hard time ed007 is his supposed allegiance to another club that we don't like 🤔
What says you ed?

{Ed007's Note - It could be mate with some fans which is just sad imo. I'd have Taylor over Bolingoli everyday of the week and we had fans changing their social media names over him ffs. Maybe if a video of Taylor singing The Rebs was leaked to social media or if he qualified for an Irish passport he would get some more slack eh? 🎣
And anyone thinking just replacing Taylor is going to help our style of play are kidding themselves on. Taylor is never going to be a world beater but like Super Jonny Hayes before him and countless other players over the years will do their job in the SPFL for us, he will give 100% and make mistakes but run himself into the ground for the team while other players offer very little and are lauded over.}
