MOORE TIME IN BS3 FOR TAYLOR

FRIDAY, AUGUST 16TH 2019

Taylor Moore has agreed a new two-year contract at Ashton Gate.

The 22-year-old defender completed the formalities of his deal earlier today, which sees him tied to the club until the summer of 2021.

Head Coach Lee Johnson said: “Taylor has earned his stripes by going out and playing League Two and League One football.

“His attitude has been exemplary and he fully deserves his new contract given his start to this season, both in pre-season and the games played already.”

Having arrived in BS3 from Lens in 2016, Moore has enhanced his development on loan at Bury, Cheltenham Town and most recently Southend United.

Moore continued to impress during the club’s 2019/20 pre-season training camp in Florida and was named in the starting XI for the season opener against Leeds United. He also completed 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup first round tie at QPR on Tuesday night.

Moore has made nine senior appearances in City colours to date.

Not too big an extension, seems to show they're less sure about him than others who have been given 4 year deals.

Hope he can can continue to develop and prove he should be here beyond 2021.

For all we know he could have been offered a longer deal, but agent and player thought a 2 year deal may be more fitting with their plan for his future?

I’ve said before , I don’t think he’s ready yet . Very happy for him to prove me wrong and will Save us £m’s if he does. 

He comes across as a really nice lad and is obviously driven to succeed .

well done Taylor

Good luck to the lad.

Sensible decision by club too, as out of contract next summer.

Lets see @Agard Days Night and @BS4 on Tour... take over this thread 😱😱😱

Spot on.The club have done it right by only 2 years because I’m not sure about him and guess the manager isn’t either,long gone are the days when 4 year contracts were dished out willy nilly at this club

on how he performed when he was on loan to them ?

At 22? I doubt he is ready, but I'm sure Ina couple of years time he will be a very good player. Let's hope that the pressure doesn't get to him and he can do a job. Gwaan Taylor.......

Yes I agree , and if we’d bought a replacement for Webster it he wouldn’t of been trust into the Leeds game. The championship is a very harsh league though and any mistake is highlighted. I certainly won’t heap any pressure on him during games . I really do hope this is the making of him.

Interesting that it's only an extra year.  If he carries on like he's started this season I feel we might be struggling to get him to sign the next one.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there was an option for another year. The thing with a 2 year deal is (I believe) it takes TM to an age where compensation wouldn’t be applicable under Bosman, so if he wasn’t going to be used this year, perversely we’d have been better off not extending to get maximum value.

As for TM - this is a big season for him. He’s clearly worked hard, bulked out and now has nigh on 100 senior games. Webster’s late departure really opens a door for him and I’d hope he had enough about him to step up - wasn’t fantastic defensively vs Leeds (were very good points though) but he seems the type to learn and move on - Nagy ahead will also help.

The contract for me gives him a clear sign he’s getting a chance and I think he’ll work his damndest to take it - I think he may have the ability to do so as well

I just hope it's not the breaking of him, he should have plenty of time to nurture, with Bakers injury record it's almost a given that Moore will play more than is ideal.

Firstly how does anyone replace such a classy CB as Webster? Secondly the club had two potential CBs on the radar but neither panned out. It was not as if  City weren’t looking.

As for TM - with Wright injured, he’ll undoubtedly be involved over the upcoming games. Kalas, Baker and Moore are the only fit  CBs and the more game time he gets the better he’ll become. It’s all about Championship experience from now on.

I appreciate that It was only one game against top drawer opposition but I saw enough of TM to be encouraged that he could develop into a very decent Championship CB.

They loved him, would have bitten our hands off to get him back. Trawl back through last seasons loan thread or go and find the OSIB interview with their fanzine guy. It’s all there.

Good interview from Taylor on the City site. Seems a nice lad working as hard as possible to make it. I liked the look of him v Leeds, especially the fact that he is comfortable on the ball. He will make mistakes but then so did Kalas v Leeds for their first goal.

Strange comment the defence have conceded 6 in his last two games and while it certainly wasn't TM's fault - for more than one he could have done much better (and I'm being very generous re the Leeds goal where he lost his marker).

I want him to succeed but just as when Semenyo lost his marker last season and we conceeded - you get found out quickly. Can TM cut this out soon enough - Maggers never could and he was perhaps a better prospect? The jury's out - that's why 2 years is sensible.

I could imagine him - if things go well and he finds his feet - developing into a Bristol City captain...he's a different player to the callow youth who left us on loan...

Good interview that, TM seems a very genuin lad, hope he progresses further and becomes a mainstay of the team.  I do think though he needs our encouragement and support, two guys in the Dolman near me against Leeds were moaning about him all game.  Just don't get that attitude, in my view he did well.

All together now...."We got Taylor Moore, got Taylor Moore......"

Great interview.  What a thoroughly decent young man. A fantastic attitude and brimming with confidence and optimism.  Hope he has a great season and whatever happens here, I'm sure he'll have a decent career in the game.

....if he performs up to Xmas I suspect a better deal might be on the table, if not then, next summer.  If he doesn’t snatch the opportunity then he maybe off next summer.

i do think he’s thought more highly than Zak, and there is a thinking that he will play better with better players.

I think that is a tad irrelevant - this is a rather different level.

Particularly where we plan to be this year.

How dare you @Davefevs ??!!!

However, I noticed the absolute fraud known as @Agard Days Night actually had the temerity to ‘like’ your post - despite being the perpetrator who posts absolute ‘ITK’ - ‘From the horse’s mouth’ shite on here year after year .... it’s just not funny, after more of the same the absolute joker @Agard Days Night thinks it’s funny - wot a loser!  According to the loser, Moore was signing for Southend end May/start June and he ‘heard it from the horse’s mouth’ - laughable shite from the usual suspect ...

Be interesting to see if Taylor starts today. They will have Hugill up top won't they? Well Baker really struggled with Hugill in one game I can remember at home to Preston. Will LJ gamble on Moore alongside Kalas, or Baker, or all 3. I reckon he might go with Baker and Kalas for this one.

Unfortunately for us fans, making mistakes is part of the learning process. It's only a promlem if young players don't learn from them

I prefer to look for the positives.

I'm really pleased for him. He was MOM for me in the Leeds game, competitive, attacked the ball & not afraid to use his skills on the ground in bringing the ball out. We Don't have another central defender like that.

I know he had to bulk up and get some lower level experience under his belt and that's given him (perhaps) an appreciation of being a professional footballer.

I really think he has the makings of being the long term replacement for Webster.

The key for him is reading the game quicker and anticipating the opposition runs. I think that will improve over time playing and training with better players around him.

He is a talent that will make mistakes but he's only 22 and he will improve still further.

Been watching him for some time now & waiting for this great oppertunity that now presents itself...has all the tools,,hope he grasps it with both hands as I was beginning to get concerned about him moving on,us missing out then watching him flourish elsewhere...

Hope he makes it his as the potential to play top level is there...

So summer 2021 is just the end of next season, making it a one year extension but including a pay rise for this season along with it.
