Luke Edwards Reports Isaac Hayden To Stay At Newcastle



Telegraph reporter Luke Edwards, who has been right about Steve Bruce as well as Joelinton, is reporting that it looks like Isaac Hayden will be staying at Newcastle this year.

Here is the tweet that Luke, who is currently on vacation, has sent out:

This is excellent news as Isaac has become a top player at Newcastle as well as becoming a leader on the team. We had suspected with recent comments that Isaac may be staying at Newcastle.

He recently spoke glowingly of Steve Bruce as well the prospects for the coming season.

This is what Hayden said last Thursday after the pre-season victory against West Ham:

“Everyone was waiting. It’s a big thing for the players, the manager coming in.

“Look, I’ve worked with Steve before. I know the type of manager that he is and the type of man that he is.

“In the circumstances at the club at the minute, I know he can bring togetherness.

“I know what he does on the training field and what style of play he wants to bring in. For us, at this moment in time, it’s a good appointment.”

“I think everyone’s realistic and knows where the club’s at at the minute. We haven’t got superstars in the team that are going to make the difference by themselves like other teams have.

“We’ve been over it with Rafa so many times. It’s well known. We’re a well drilled side. We’ve got players that care, want to do well and improve.

As I said, it’s about working together and sticking together. Hopefully, we’ll get the results needed.”

It certainly sounded, at the time, like Isaac was fully focused on Newcastle United. We hope Luke Edwards is correct and maybe Steve Bruce has had a talk with the player and assured him the club would work with him on his family situation.

    Can’t imagine many players signing a pay as you play kind of contract.

    The Conservative party of Britain is headed down the same self-destructive path as the GOP in the States. Disastrous for everyone on the planet. With cretins and evil-doers in charge it’s beginning to look a lot like 1939.

    I’ve seen a couple of rallies for about 20 seconds and couldn’t stand what I witnessed so turned it off. Unfortunately across the globe racism, or the under current of dividing and appalling dark ages mentality is making a return.

    The under current of what lay silent is given a platform by the likes of trump, boris etc and it makes me feel very uneasy. Certain people now feel like they can behave or say what they like as they have been given a license to by these horrible racists, bigots!!

    Spot on Tinman @38 and Our Toon @39. Well said SwissSte @37. Dark and frightening. For a failed state and kleptocracy Russia has far too much influence as well, especially with The Donald.

    Mindshaft,

    as usual, everyone is making negative assumptions about who Bruce will play, the system he’ll adopt and the results we’ll get.

    Why not just wait and judge him on the first 10 games?

    He’s got little time before the first game to get his ideas across, looks like he’ll have a two or three new players to integrate and he hasn’t got the easiest of starts to the season.

    It’s a good job Rafa wasn’t judged on his first 10 games last season…

    There again, he was be a good few on here.

    They wanted him sacked and slammed his team selections and tactics.

    We’ve learned nothing from history and are about to do a full circle, can you imagine the leader of Iran making comments like trump does on race or women or anything tbf. The world would go mad, as would the US, us the UK and our allies around the globe. Because it’s the US though people say nothing and nothing is done about it.

    Is it just me or does anyone else read that as Rafa caused a split?

    I find it a tad odd that he wants to stay now, when we are in a far far worse position compared to 6 months ago when he wanted to leave. It almost looks like he knows something we dont, and sees potential in staying now.

    Of course it could just be hes playing well and hes getting used to the situation with his family.

    Well said about the brilliance of our defensive organization Tinman @38. That is one thing that Bruce will find very difficult to sustain. If Rafa had been given money our attack would have been equally effective. Now, we’re back to the real Ashley method. Buy young, allow speculation (based hopefully on good performance), then sell-on to bring in the next young potential star. The club remains indefinitely somewhere in the bottom 10. The perfect Ashley scenario.

    Bill’s son is back,
    Those wanting Rafa sacked and slammed his tactics were in a tiny minority and were generally hate filled and bitter people, a bit like you and your defence of everything Ashley does( even though you’ve(apparently) made it clear you want him out)

    I’d say its just you Mickey. I imagine there wasnt much cohesion or togetherness and most likely a lot of them were privately feeling a bit lost without a manager. It came across to me as they have lost it when they lost Rafa.

    Jail, I often banged the drum that Rafa was often slightly too defensive/cautious. Attacking subs slightly late, not pushing for the 2nd goal, full rotation for cups etc. I never once stated he should go. I’m sure I’m the sort of person Bill’s is misrepresenting…

    Munster never wanted him sacked mind, he just loved slamming his tactics and trying to gather as many people as he could to his cause so eventually when it, hopefully all went wrong he could have said it was him that was the cleverest for being the first to point out how shit Rafa was. Unfortunately for our intellectually stunted European friend it never did go wrong so he had to pretend he liked him and getting to him about his hlove size rather than his footballing nous.

    Bill’s, what is it you want? Are you actually going out of your way to get on the wrong side of as many people on here as possible?

    Your comment at #46 suggests that we all want Bruce to fail, which is going to rub those loyal to Rafa up the wrong way. It then goes on to say that a large number of people wanted Rafa to fail, suggesting you knew better and likely rubbing those not loyal to Rafa up the wrong way.

    In the meantime, by antagonising folk who will likely react strongly, you get to suggest that you’re the victim when you are snapped at.

    I’ve seen you baiting Optimistic Prime, who has bitten. I’ve personally been the object of your accusations of arrogance for simply asking you a couple of simple questions and challenging a couple of your statements. Last time I addressed you directly (non-offensively btw) I was told to back off in no uncertain terms.

    I don’t understand why you appear to come on here just simply to start some bother.

    Please tell me where I’m wrong.

    Geordie2…. possibly, but it’s hard to see how that would convince him to stay when it didnt 6 months ago. It could be nothing and its probably just him getting used to the situation at this stage. But it makes you think for sure that maybe he knows something we dont and feels it might be worth it to stay.

    Lets be real here mind before SSN gets carried away saying we broke our transfer record again within 7months.

    If Joelinton is £37m then we’ve only spent £7m on him after Perez.

    The only question we should be asking is who will be sold to get the £7m back????

    Yes, I’m definitely seeing a couple of loans in our future now that we have the one prize player we were after (apparently). So net spend? Hard to say yet but if Joelinton cost 36M then net spend is 6M with the sale of Perez! Possibly if he cost 45M increase that to 15M but that suggests to me we will sell somebody else to cover that. Ashley loves to be in the black at all times.

    Micky, I think it’s more likely he’s talking about a split between the club and the fans, rather than a split in the dressing room.

    We all know there’s only one man responsible for that. He’s fat, graceless and owns a chain of shops selling cr@p.

    DubaiMicky,
    I read it as bring togetherness in that the club is a footin shambles due to one man and his lap dogs incompetence and greed and that the players are backing Brucie because they don’t want another relegation on their hands.

    If you’re thinking possibly the takeover could still happen I hope you’re right IrishRob. But all this activity has the stench of Ashley about it. Joelinton is obviously only going to be with us for a couple of seasons if he plays well. Then another big payday for Ashley. If Joelinton were to have a 20 goal season for us he could be worth 70-80M in short order.

    Spot on Markaccus @55. This all looks very familiar again now. The price has definitely gone way up. No more Cabayes available on the cheap. But the idea remains the same. Buy young, wait a season or two, then sell on. If Longstaff actually stays with us and has a great season what would he be worth next summer? This is how Ashley thinks, not about what a great squad we could be creating.

    Hayden stays, is it because rafa is gone now? it seems same thing happened in Napoli happened again in NUFC.
    Rafa was about to be sacked before he resigned and moved to Real. Many players were unhappy when he was there.

    If one saying ever started to boil my pi$$ more than any other, whether it be from a toon fan or neutral talking about us and saying that lazy cliché “you have to remember that Ashley is just a businessman” So what, the Leicester City owners are successful businessmen, the Wolves, Watford and West Ham owners are too, guess what, every owner bar the gangster Abramovich and the Oil rich state owners are businessmen, why is Ashley’s disgusting treatment of our club brushed off because he’s just a businessman???

    I’m curious about Hayden as well. Was it all a ruse to get a better contract? I don’t think so. I think he definitely wanted a move back south, but possibly he sees a future with much more playing time with us than elsewhere. I hope he has a tremendous season ahead.
