When is Hayden back exactly?

Recommended Posts

I think its become really obvious that a specialist DM is what is missing from this team. From us blindly passing to the opposition on the edge of the box, where an anchorman should be to link defence with attack, to our struggle to break up opposition counter attacks, and our lightweight players having to drop too deep and then panicking in possession.

There's a big Isaac Hayden shaped hole waiting to be filled with an Isaac Hayden.

The last report was 'running on the grass with the ball'.

Next should be 'training with the group'.

Then some 'game time with the U21's'.

Followed by 'in the matchday squad'.

Then a brief cameo at then end of a game.

It's going to be post world cup isn't it realistically, even then he's not going to be match fit.

Pretty sure Smith has said that he's going to play in a behind closed doors friendly during the next international break. If that is the case then I'd imagine he could be involved plenty before the world cup.

According to @hogesaron here yesterday he expects him to return to the squad in a couple of weeks as he saw him out on a run near his home.

The one thing I would say is that if we can keep this going and remain in the automatic promotion spots until he comes back then we will be dead certs for promotion. Its the position we are crying out to fill and if he lives up to expectations should allow the whole team to click.

The way things are going Hayden will start before  Sara does!

I think Sara will start Saturday, Byram looked f*cked towards the end of the game yesterday, I don't think he's a 2 games in 4 days player, so McLean left back and Sara in midfield.

SB was so knackered that at one point he just ran into the ball, couldn't adjust his feet , even though it wasn't a tricky ball to deal with. Mind you he had put himself about a bit by then. Think he'll start though, unless he's had a tweak/ knock. Then if he's cooked, kenny to lb. Sara on. But also  happy to see Sara in for kenny , SB start . Somehow think Kenny will start though , it's what he does, but not all ☝️👇👈👉👆

Probebly unlikely to meet the appearances needed to trigger a move, must be at least 50%.  If he can prove himself fit enough could pick him up fpt batgain.  Maybe jusy a pipedream.  Hope we can cancel in January.

Hayden should be playing in a behind doors friendly over the International break so it wasn't surprising to see him running - but it does suggest there hasn't been another setback. That could see him in the matchday squad not too long after.

If Gibbs is match fit, Hayden will be mostly a bench player.

Gibbs is wasted as a DM though, he's a box-to-box like Howson in my view.
