Matty Taylor

Recommended Posts

I believe he can be recalled this month? 

I am by no means his biggest fan but could we save ourselves a bit of money and give him a run of games in the number 9 role. 

Always feels like he’s played more as a number 10 for us when at Rovers and Oxford he has been played as a number 9.

I am of the view that we are more suited to a 3-5-2. We have a very good number 10 in Weimann but since Afobe got injured we haven’t had a number 9 who can play on last man and stretch the play.

Gives a bit more options in terms of how we can play. Can play more possession based football with Weimann and Taylor upfront and then more direct style with Fam and Weimann upfront. Could even play all 3.

Let’s be honest to get anyone who’s a Championship ready striker in this window is gonna cost a lot. Can take a punt on someone like Hogan but he’s hardly set the world alight recently or get someone from aboard who’s probably gonna need time to adapt.

9 in 22 matches. Can't get in the team?

Anyhow, not an improvement and therefore no reason to recall.

He’s a nuisance but generally hugely overrated because of where we signed him from,  I would rather have Semenyo than him.

Blimey that is saying something. I would have said Taylor is a lot better.

Would love to be proven wrong but don't think he's good enough to get us into the top 6. 

You won’t, however he is effective coming on in the last 15 against tired legs, always brings energy with him

Don’t think we’ll see Taylor back here, isn’t out of contract in the summer? Wouldn’t surprise me to see him stay with Oxford beyond this season.

Think Matty lifts the atmosphere at the Gate when he comes on and seems to rejuvenate both fans and the team. Plus I understand  he’s good in the dressing room, something I feel may have been missing in recent weeks.

Started six out of the last ten games after a little injury. Started the last game. Can certainly ‘get in the Oxford team’

Worth having on the bench as an impact sub , more of a threat than the rest of our subs put together

….besides that, he has a great song, so gets my vote!   👍

It's not all about goals scored, it's also about what you add to the team.

We're a better team when he's playing.

Get him back and add a bit of enthusiasm to the team.

He does indeed. And he, alongside Pato are a mischievous pair off the pitch.

I don’t think generally he is what we want for top 6, although he has won me over from my initial view. But I can think of plenty of worse options!  Add bite and shithousery too  

Think we are waiting to see what the striker situation is, and if we get to the end of the window and still looking short I think he’ll be recalled. Otherwise I think his deal would’ve been made permanent by now.  Might be wrong though.
