Taylor praise for Llambias

BY foxsports • September 27, 2011

Last season a number of players complained about bonuses they felt were outstanding, but it was resolved when manager Alan Pardew helped broker an agreement prior to the start of the current campaign. Llambias has promised that will be no repeat, which Taylor believes is important if the club are to build on their promising start to the season. "Last season, you probably read about how the chairman (Llambias) and the players couldn't come to an agreement about bonuses," said the defender. "We had a bit of a divide between the chairman and the players last year. That doesn't help. "At the start of this season we sat down with the gaffer and I think it's important that you have the chairman on your side. He's been great with us, sat us down and given the lads their bonuses for this season straight away. "He has just kept himself to himself, hasn't bothered the players - has let us concentrate on the pitch and let the gaffer do his job. So that's what you want, it's been good for us this season."
