Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor has warned his new teammates about the demands of the Toon Army.

Taylor has a word of advice for the new boys.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "People work hard and pay their money, and up here football is all they talk about all week.

"Places like London they might talk about football over the weekend and possibly carry it over into work on Monday if they have got friends at work who are into it.

"But up here they talk about it all the time."
