Just in case you weren’t aware, Chinese New Year is coming up at the end of the month and as 138 BET are one of Newcastle United’s sponsors, many of Alan Pardew’s players recorded Happy New Year messages.
Some of the players, such as Italian full back Davide Santon, had enough trouble recording the message in English, so when it came to Chinese many of them didn’t have a clue.
Pardew put forward French winger Yoan Gouffran as the linguist of the group, but it would be fair to say that they’ll need a bit more time to learn the Chinese language if they are to be word perfect.
One person who didn’t stand a chance is local lad Steven Taylor, who certainly isn’t the sharpest tool in the box, is one sandwich short of a picnic, [insert similar phrase here].
Anyway, as 2014 is the Chinese year of the horse, Taylor decided that he’d try and do an impression of a horse (at least that’s what I think it was).
Prepare to be amazed…
