Taylor must have thought he was being set up for a video on U-Tube when he was shown the Magpies' new away kit.
Championship teams will certainly see United coming in a strip which combines orange and yellow stripes to unmissable effect.
I'm sure it is a fashion disaster - although I hear it went down well when paraded around Newcastle's Pink Village yesterday - but is a striking kit such a bad thing for the players?
At least they will be able to pick each other out on the pitch. Is that such a bad thing?
