Midfielder Declares Himself 100% Fit And Raring To Go



Newcastle fans are still waiting on the status of star striker Callum Wilson for this Saturday’s match against Chelsea. Wilson suffered a hamstring injury in the Southampton defeat but initial scans revealed the injury was just a minor one.

Steve Bruce will hopefully not be tempted to start Wilson at St. James’ Park against the red hot Blues, whether’s he’s declared fit or not. It’s a match where a result is highly unlikely and saving our leading goalscorer for the following winnable fixtures is probably best.

Other than Wilson, there are no other Magpies that we know of who are questionable for Saturday. The injury list currently stands at 7, including Wilson. But Martin Dubravka, Paul Dummett, Ryan Fraser, Dwight Gayle, Matt Ritchie, and Jonjo Shelvey are all ruled out for this weekend.


One player who we expect to come back into the team is Isaac Hayden. The midfielder suffered a hamstring injury against Manchester United. While he made the bench in the last three matches, he only got a small cameo in the win against Everton.

Speaking to NUFC TV, Isaac has declared himself fully fit now, which wasn’t the case for the last three games.

Here is Hayden’s update on his fitness:

“I think after the Man United game it wasn’t quite right. It wasn’t 100%. Then we played the Everton game, the team did well. The squad did well. And I only played 10 to 15 minutes but it wasn’t 100% then either.

“I’ve had the international break now to get 100% right. I feel 100% now and ready and raring to go to help the team to kick on and get up the league.”

Getting a fully fit Isaac Hayden should help Newcastle’s midfield on Saturday. It’ll be interesting to see if Bruce sticks with the 5-3-1-1 formation or goes back to the drawing board once again.

Hayden coming in for Jeff Hendrick seems like a no brainer, especially if Bruce keeps the same formation he’s used over the past three matches.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Chelsea On Saturday?

    Tom best thing we can do as we are apparently the problem here, is just ignore all from the idiots and it will soon be shown who or what the problem is and it won’t be me or you.

    Getting back to football, I can’t see us getting anything from Chelsea unfortunately. Think we’ll show them loads of respect like we tend to do, will invite endless attacks and pressure on ourselves and ultimately concede. I would love to be wrong but that’s the only way I can imagine it going.

    Its outta hand man 😉

    Its not about being the bigger man etc, its about holding your hands up to what you’ve done that’s helped create the situation.

    I don’t bait or leave snide comments for Munster, I may have lowered myself and played his game for a while but I haven’t for a while now, I only respond when he’s out of order.

    At the end of the day we’ll all have disagreements but for them to be going on daily for months is insane.

    Tbh I think a lot of the stuff all 4 of you say to each other is tongue in cheek and you all can be funny at times, however its getting more and more personal and nasty.

    Time to stop before it really gets out of hand.

    I know you could say the same regarding myself and Munster but he’s gone way to far for too long.

    You and I had spats but converse respectfully and can still pull each others legs without a scrap, there’s a few posters I can say that about.

    Its not healthy for you me or the blog to have this constant tension between a large group of regular posters, blogs worse for it.

    Thanks for the response, glad you saw it for what it was meant to be.

    Ps. If you were embarrassed to ask for lady things, you shoulda got your lass to write a note 😉

    Hope she’s well.

    On the last page you posted some Twitter comments, I don’t use Twitter so I’m struggling for context lol.

    Who sent what to whom?

    Has someone done a tweet and they’re the responses?

    Don’t use it so I’m unsure of what I’m looking at when it’s copied and pasted.

    Can one person do the tango?
    If one person changes the steps in the dance, the dance changes. … Either way, you are dancing the dance that you want to be dancing. It does not take two to tango. It only requires one person.

    Just saying like.

    Tackle, disagree, the tango requires 2 people in close contact, otherwise it is a solo.
    Tango is a partner dance, and social dance that originated in the 1880s along the Río de la Plata
