RUFC - Taylor - Millers best player???

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore has dubbed striker, Ryan Taylor as 'Rotherham's Best Player......... on the training ground.'

Ryan, twenty-one, is a product of the Millers' Youth set-up and he made his debut for the first team in the 2005/6 season. People were just starting to sit up and take notice of the young striker when he was hit with a bout of glandular fever, which laid him low and ruled him out of the rest of the season. To help with his fitness and confidence, then Manager, Mark Robins, sent him out on loan for a month with non-league Burton. Since then he's had numerous chances in the first team but doesn't seem to have quite found his earlier form and he now finds himself down the pecking order of strikers at the club.

Speaking to Dom Howson of The Star, Ronnie Moore said, 'He's our best player by miles in training and if he could produce that sort of form and confidence on the big stage then we've got one hell of a player.

'He may not be brilliant in the air but he's quick with a great left foot and, sooner or later, we are going to have to see what the kid is all about.

'He's on the bench nearly every week but I have to make that decision of do we keep waiting for him or do we take his armbands off and throw him in the deep end.'

I have to say, a couple of season's ago, when I watched the Reserves regularly, I thought Ryan Taylor was going to be 'something', the one we were going to bring along and probably sell for big money. He used to run at players and make chances out of nothing. But, when he was in the starting eleven he seemed to be like a rabbit in the headlights - like a different player altogether. I really do think that this season is his 'make or break' year. I'd love him to come good and make everyone sit up and take notice again but I really can't see what else the club can do for him.
