I've heard reports from the USA that Hulk Hogan is very impressed with Steve Taylor and his signature move; 'The Forearm Smash'
Hogan watched Steve Taylor perform the move on our very own Andrey Arshavin at St James Park. It was executed to perfection with the Geordie even taking only two glimpses at the Russian before nailing him straight in the kisser.
Hulk Hogan was amazed at the fact that Taylor is only 23 and showed maturity beyond his years to elude any criticism or coverage over the incident.
How is it possible that Steve Taylor has got away with this? It was an attack! If I did this in the street I'd be locked up for GBH and would spend the next three years of my life locked up. And I would deserve it.
The intent of Taylor's actions were more obvious than the fact that Harry Redknapp has a twitch. At least Redknapp tries to keep it under control. Just like Redknapp, Taylor took one look, then another before finally deciding the time was right.
I liked Steve Taylor before this assault. I rated him as a very good defender but this was total bollocks.
This may sound drastic but one day a player will be maimed, disabled or even killed as a result of such thuggery. Taylor should be punished as a warning so it doesn't happen again.
Unfortunately it may take something like a death from such a challenge before something is done.
I'm just glad Arshavin is fine.
Keep it Goonerish..............
