Newcastle Midfielder Uncertain Of Future But Enjoying Life Under New Coaches


Isaac Hayden spoke to BBC Newcastle after yesterday’s win over St-Etienne and some of what he says has caused a bit of concern.

Matthew Raisbeck, who commented on the game yesterday for Newcastle, posted the following comments by Isaac.

Steve Bruce has been very open in his comments about his feelings that Isaac will stay at Newcastle this summer. Earlier in the week, Bruce said the following about his midfielder:

“He’s another really good young player who I had the privilege to work with at Hull.

“All the indications are positive, so let’s hope we can persuade him to stay and play his football at Newcastle.

“Certainly, that’s what I want.

This mirrored earlier comments Bruce had made and there were even reports that Steve is trying to tie Isaac and four other first-team players to new contracts. Those players are Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Ritchie, Martin Dubravka, and Sean Longstaff.

What Isaac says in his comments to the BBC don’t really change what Bruce has said. Bruce is a very positive coach and his outlook is that he is confident that Isaac will stay this summer.

Hayden is just being realistic in his approach. He, no doubt, is willing to listen to contract offers from the club but he is still not 100% convinced he is staying. There is nothing wrong with that.

He may not get the contract offer he wants or another team may come in for him in the last few days of the window that could be a better fit for him and his family. That is just telling it like it is.

What we find positive about Isaac’s statement is that he really seems to be enjoying his time here over the past few weeks. This is good news and has been reflected in the comments of many players since the new coaching staff has arrived.

It will be a nervy few days as this transfer window closes, there is no doubt about that. It is important that this team is kept together and if anyone does leave it must be for a ridiculous offer. That includes Isaac Hayden.

There are the makings of an exciting team here that will no doubt also be a frustrating one at times. We are pleased with the transfer window so far but there is still work to be done.

We are also very impressed with the professionalism of the squad and their ability to focus through what has been a very tumultuous summer.

    Wacky madcap zany dingbat conspiracy theory – jib/Jane is a construct of Ed & Neil in order to multiply traffic by means of controversy and provocation. Having been rumbled as a definite multiple with zero credibility points left they’ve pushed out a timely article to move things along ….

    Once upon a time I moved out to Spain to follow my dreams of becoming a bullfighter. Unfortunately it didn’t quite pan out so I went into selling dodgy boxes to a select clientele. Hahahahahahaha it just gets better and better year in year out from our one and only blog pest

    However the crisis is in Tsunki’s tiny mind.

    Accusing someone of being a multiple is
    a bit like saying “when did you stop beating your wife”
    It’s a very clever device for discrediting a poster

    Oh and jib/jane/tony, can you categorically deny being Justin Barnes? Cos I’ve now mentioned it 3 times over the past 6 months and you’ve never replied at all.

    Weird one, I’d have thought you would – unless you’re just ignoring it to see if it would go away.

    We will need to trim the squad with only 25 places minus the 3 keepers so it looks like trying to arrange some loan deals sharpish.

    I think Bruce is going try and emulate the big boys with a high press attacking approach which the lads will not be accustomed to so good luck with that. It will be interesting to see what transpires as apparently his two coaches are quite astute and have already commanded a fair bit of respect amongst the players .

    Mike Ashley has moved into pole position in the race to buy Jack Wills, the fashion retailer, in a move which risks inflaming growing tensions between the billionaire tycoon and City investors.
    A deal that could fall apart ?
    Where have I heard that before ?

    Sky News has learnt that Mr Ashley’s Sports Direct International has this weekend become the preferred bidder for Jack Wills, which has been seeking a buyer for the last month.

    A deal between Sports Direct and Jack Wills, known for its ‘preppy’ fashion ranges popular among students, could be announced as soon as Monday.Sources said that it was expected to be structured as a ?pre-pack administration, repeating many of the previous takeovers which have made Mr Ashley one of the most prolific buyers of British retail brands. One insider cautioned on Sunday that a deal had yet to be signed, and warned that it could yet fall apart.

    So Rafa is now getting blamed for telling the truth to Viera and Arteta for not taking the job?

    Unbelievable!!

    Remember those 2 guys are winners and were the ultimate professionals anything that Newcastle do under Ashley is amateur level!!

    Lied to Rafa about getting the training ground
    Lied to Rafa about every last penny to spend
    Stupid policies of only signing young players when you need experience to bring the players on as well
    Ashley changing his mind when selling the club to suit his agenda for withholding funds
    A battle every window to get players signed and if the club is doing well they don’t spend to progress

    They didn’t even need to ask Rafa about all of that it’s pretty much public knowledge and within football circles!!

    Why would they risk their reputation with that?

    I think Rafa in the end was naive in that he thought he could change the way the club was run but they just used him to get them back up and now we are consolidated its business as usual

    Bruce better be hassling them all week for another experienced striker or it could be a tough season
