A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a tweet that was posted by Toon midfielder Isaac Hayden following the North East club’s 0-0 draw with 2019/20 Premier League champions Liverpool on Wednesday evening. 

Hayden played the entirety of this fixture, with the 25-year-old making the joint-second-highest number of tackles of any Toon player in this draw with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Easy one to get us underway, in what month during 2019 was Steve Bruce appointed Newcastle manager?

In his post-match tweet, the £9m-rated man shared that he feels this ‘great point’ will help the Toon to move past their recent ‘bad run of form.’ He went on to praise the ‘hunger and desire’ shown by him and his teammates versus Liverpool before thanking supporters of the North East club for their backing. 

So, how have these Newcastle United fans responded to Hayden’s post?

This tweet drew a largely positive response from fans of Newcastle. Many Toon supporters replied to this tweet to praise their side for how they played versus Liverpool, with some taking this opportunity to ask Hayden to tell Toon boss Steve Bruce that this is how they want to see Newcastle playing from now on.
