Newcastle: Fans react to Hayden’s comments

Image for Newcastle: Fans react to Hayden’s comments

A lot of Newcastle United fans have responded to Isaac Hayden talking about Salomon Rondon.

The Newcastle midfielder claims that one of the reasons the Toon’s formation worked last year was because they had Rondon up top who could hold off four players.

Who would you prefer as Newcastle's striker?





Hayden then went on to say that they don’t have that this season.

The 24-year-old said, ‘People don’t realise’ what Rondon did for them, and George Caulkin of The Athletic believes that this was aimed at the head of recruitment at Newcastle and to whoever wrote the Joelinton cheque.

Safe to say that these Toon fans are fuming with the board and have shown their frustration in response to Hayden’s quotes.

What do we think?

These comments from Hayden are interesting, and they could suggest that he is unhappy the club did not keep Rondon.

Some Newcastle fans have interpreted this as a dig at Joelinton, but we don’t think it is.

We agree with Caulkin that this is Hayden trying to let those high up at the club know that they should have signed Rondon.

This is because Rondon scored 12 goals for Newcastle with 11 coming in the Premier League.

In contrast to this, the Toon’s current forward line has scored one Premier League goal between them all season – so it is easy to understand why Hayden could think Newcastle should have signed Rondon.
