Taylor Hopes To Avoid Further Pundit Criticism

Taylor Hopes To Avoid Further Pundit Criticism

Swansea City left back Neil Taylor says he hopes to avoid getting further criticism from pundits on Match of the Day.

The young Welshman has been tipped to be a regular for the Welsh international side, but in some games this season, he has been picked out by pundits for some poor performances against tough opposition in the Premier League.

Taylor says he hopes he can just watch Match of the Day without the likes of Alan Hansen and Mark Lawrenson picking him out for criticism.

"I watch Match of the Day and I understand that teams and players get scrutinised.

"I also understand if you play at the back or in goal you don`t get that same attention if you have a good game.

"It`s kind of accepted that you`ve done a good job, so there`s no need to say anything.

"But if you get a mention, it means that something`s wrong. I suppose that`s their job and they have to analyse the game.

"I just hope to have a good game and then sit back and enjoy watching the programme without the worry of being picked out for something I have done wrong."


Criticising Neil Taylor would be harsh to say the least, considering his rise from non-League in just two years, but the Premier League is an unforgiving one and you need to be on the top of your game to do relatively well.

Taylor has shown he can adapt and improve to cope with the higher standards but at times he has shown his struggle to cope with the better teams away from home.

He has a better time of it at home. The Swans are still yet to concede on their own soil and Taylor has more freedom and opportunities to get forward.

Hopefully he and the rest of his team-mates will be free of criticism on tonight's Match of the Day.
