Midfielder Happy To Have Conversations About New Contract But Wants To See Commitment From Club


Isaac Hayden has been one of Newcastle’s best player in the two games this season. He has emerged as one of Newcastle’s leaders on and off the pitch. Having previously played for Steve Bruce while at Hull City, Isaac was also very vocal this summer about the impact Bruce has had since he joined.

There have been many factors in Isaac’s rise as both a player and a leader. The most important of which is that he seems to have found some balance with his personal life. He has given a few interviews this summer about how the situation with his family has improved.

He has also spoken of the impact Newcastle supporters have had on his decision to stay with the club. The support from the fans seems to have really stuck with Isaac in his decision to stay with Newcastle.

With this renewed commitment to the club, talk of a new contract has escalated over the past few weeks. While Isaac is certainly willing to talk, he seems to want to make sure the club have the right plan for the future.

Isaac Hayden– wants club to continually improve

Isaac was interviewed in the Athletic about his contract situation with Newcastle:

“I want to commit because it’s the right thing to do, because the club is going in the right direction and because the club value me in a certain way.

“There has to be a continuous goal to improve.

“I always want to improve and better myself; I want to play with better players and, if that means more money is being pumped into this club, then that can only be a good thing.

“I’m happy to have conversations about a new contract, as I’ve said to the manager and the club, but I have to be valued in the right way.”

The interesting aspect of these comments is Hayden mentioning the continuous goal to improve. He obviously wants the club to bring in the best players but he also wants the best deal for himself.

We sense a bit of uncertainty on Isaac’s part here. Though, the process may just be in the early stages at this point.

Isaac’s contract has two years remaining on it. We would like to see Isaac and some other players like Sean Longstaff, Fabian Schar, and Martin Dubravka also get new deals this year.

    The lackluster and haphazard way the team has been playing in these first 2 matches looks like a nonverbal indication of how they all really feel re: losing Rafa (and his project) and getting Bruce.

    Despite what they say in interviews they look like they are dispirited and can’t muster the level of effort they displayed under the Spanish manager.

    Obviously. It’s like your model wife walking out on you and you’re trying to be satisfied with the dog of a lass you have now.

    As much as I hate to say it because I really didn’t like him when he was with us. We sorely miss a midfielder like Sissoko who could carry the ball through midfield and break the other teams lines.

    Not to be too harsh on him but that appears to be the role Hayden is being asked to play this season and he just doesn’t have ability on the ball nor the pace to be able to do it. He’s just going to end up running himself out and then be ineffective for the last half an hour of games.

    When he left Sissoko was the second best player in our team, which speaks volumes about the rest of that lot that got relegated. Wini was country miles our best player.

    WL,

    Sorry for no reply, just posted and left. So, how long will I give SB? No idea how long my patience will last. Used to hold on to the “first ten games” mark. That went out the window after last year’s 3 from 30! We survived with a couple games to spare.

    Thing is, survival isn’t enough for me. We were one of the good teams at the EPL’s beginnings and I still expect that. Whoever is the owner or manager.

    Mike’s iron curtain,

    Yes, for me SB is a ‘new guy’, clean slate and all that. And, he’s never managed a team of NUFC’s calibre (whatever that means!). Also, I haven’t watched him that carefully. Have you? I don’t know too much about his tactics, his personality, management style, etc.

    He’s taken the hot seat and has handled it alright, given the negativity around the club and his appointment.

    Of course, this is a results business and he knows that. Rafa too took a while to figure out his best formation, experimented with players and approach, that’s how it is.

    Will Bruce get it right? No idea, but I’m certainly not willing him to fail in order to ‘hurt’ MA.

    I want my team to succeed, always have. Under even the likes of JFK, AP, you name the manager (or the owner)

    Leave off Sage. He has posted for years, is consistent in his tone, most often talks football and stays out of the mud, challenges without being confrontational and just states his veiwpoint and seems open minded.

    I actually don’t mind your routine about the non-sale – I skip past your posts when you get tiresome but don’t mind that you have kept your eye on Ashley and remind the blog as such.

    But there are certain bloggers who are most clearly not “PR” and Sage obviously isn’t “PR”. And you’ve posted on here long enough (before you started the frog routine) to know better.

    Hayden putting his self importance above Newcastle United ?

    Or is he just wary of Ashley as Ashley has form ?

    I say it’s the latter.

    Bad situation but that’s where we are.

    If Hayden is hedging his bets then the other players must talk about Ashley and are aware Ashley is a fk up . All true.

    i dont think many are actual willing him to fail,
    but on the other hand i think he’ll manage that quite easily himself without any help from anyone on here 😉
