Video – Hayden Training In Ireland With New Teammates


Here is video put out by Newcastle of Isaac Hayden training in County Kildare, Ireland today with his new teammates  after signing a five year contract with Newcastle.

Newcastle are also hoping to sign 24 year-old Blackburn Rovers captain and center-back Grant Hanley soon,  having bid £4.5M with the news today that Rovers want £6M to get the deal done.

Hopefully Newcastle can afford that – or close to it – and sign Grant who has plenty of experience in the Championship and also has terrific leadership skills.

    Thanks for the advice Our Toon.
    I played Rugby to county level so know quite a bit about shoulder charges.
    I once spent a very interesting Saturday afternoon in the company of a Greek doctor in the General Hospital because a member of the Gustard family showed me exactly what damage a shoulder charge could do.

    You have sneered at me 3 times now about Google.

    I am so aux fait with the internet and it’s workings that it’s not funny.

    Keep your sneering to a minimum bonny lad or you might just find your bank account details and pin numbers popping up.
    Love and Kisses

    As much as we need to get the best possible price for sissoko, letting it run until the end of the window does no good for us to be ready for the season.

    Would prefer we strike a decnt deal pre-august and get his replacement(s) in for Fulham.

    Think 20m + player exchange would be fair – would prefer Ibe or Pritchard – young and British is the way forward a la Spurs.

    I get the distinct impression that part of Rafa’s enjoyment of management is the cut and thrust and haggling of player deals.

    Those coming from the EU will need to have work visas much like those currently that don’t come from the EU, that’s if we decide to invoke article 50 and don’t agree to free movement. Visas are currently given based on

    A player must have played for his country in at least 75% of its competitive A team matches of which he was available for selection, during the two years preceding the date of the application

    The player’s country must be at or above 70th place in the official FIFA world rankings when averaged over the two years preceding the date of the application.

    Young players can’t be loaned to teams in Europe with the hope that they become citizens of an EU country and then qualify to play in prem. Same applies for those coming from south America and Africa, they won’t be able to get into the UK under EU passports as they do now. Nothing to do with how much money can be generated in taxes

    Is it not correct with the players we have bought and sold so far we have not spent a penny?

    Lets get the money for Sissoko and ask for a percent on resale.

    Anything close to 30 million will be fantastic. Even with the amount of money available in the PL there are very few clubs that can spend that kind of money on one player. So lets stay realistic.

    …and no, Benitez is not thinking that Sissoko is going to stay…as someone said, he just trying to get his value.

    Much like Owen Coyle in Blackburn.

    What a silly game this is.

    Yes we haven’t spent a penny apparently but we still pay a lot in wages, with the reduced payments from relegation it’s tough to know exactly where we stand. Hanley was highly rated as a youngsters not sure how he’s progressed.

    Our toon I don’t think that will impact most of the signings we will target and I’m sure something will be agreed in regards to bringing youth in from Europe. Anyway it’s certainly not worth bringing up as a point now without understanding what will happen.

    I think Moussa will end up leaving for about 25m. I am hoping we can arrange a swap deal with the buying club.

    It’s worth bringing up because it’s something that will affect the club going forward. Mbemba has signed for us on the back of a Belgian passport but he’s of Congo I believe, out of Europe means no free movement, can’t have both. It affects us very much in terms of the players we go for. Tiote, Cisse, Mbemba etc etc.
    Joel Campbell of Arsenal was sent out on loan to Greece and then Spain so they could finally get a permit for him.

    It’s important to plan for for the future not just the here and now which is the point I was making. Sorry if I came across a bit rude and abrupt

    would the players you mention Tiote cisse etc not just qualify as they played more than enough games for their previous clubs? I can see your point but I do think for the younger inexperienced players (players that bump up the development team for instance) some sort of deal would be in place. I think the most high profile case to look at would be martial at Man U who probably wouldn’t have enough games behind him to qualify in the system you detailed. I think something will be put in place to allow them type of deals to go through but again only guessing at this point.

    Hahahaha – excellent blogging and laughs this afternoon. Best site for bloody good laughs – like a disfunctional family.
    Our Toon – challenges Jib about playing sport and the next thing is a massive hissy fit from Jib -announcing he is a county level rugby player. I know loads of county level rugby players and to a man they do not understand the finer points of football.

    Boooohhoooo boooohoooo I’m a county level wugby player boohooo boohoo I was injured by a wugby player. What a tart.

    Then he threatens cyber crime. What a tart.

    Well ideally you want them gone by the start of the season or else it just becomes a sideshow. We’ll probably here from Sissoko or his agent pretty soon I think, probably deeply unhappy about the fee we’re demanding. 🙂

    Flavio Silva. A 20 year old striker. Played briefly for Torreense. 8 goals in 11 appearances. 2 goals in 3 for the Portugese U19’s. Hard to find anything about him. Owned by Benfica but seems to be having trouble agreeing to loans.

    Cyber crime…..they are the words I was looking for. Only on this blog can you get people threating someone with things like that. It’s a very serious crime, jib thought for some reason I’d report him to Ed….little does he realise if I reported him to the police he’d serve time for making such serious threats. For some reason he thinks because he’s behind a computer it’s okay to behave in that manner. Good job I’m not sensitive

    The money involved with football especially the premier league is too big for there to be blockers in place to stop top talent being able to come to this country. They will make sure something is in place to minimise any potential impact.
