That's a manager trying to drive the price up for a promising young player that everyone in the world knows is available for purchase. Which is fair enough; there's no doubts about him leaving. Given how vocal the lad has been about moving on, there'd be a risk of letting him go for something well beneath his value. So we need to give the impression it won't be a straightforward sale, even though it probably will be..

Positive comments from a Rafa point of view, too.

I know it's the wrong topic but those aren't the words of a man who thinks hes leaving the club.(Rafa)
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

I don’t think it’s out of the question he could become the holding player for England if he continues to play like he did in the last half of the season. I know every club outside the top few has a player that they’re adamant should be playing for England but given the weakness we have in that position I don’t see many players better than Hayden. It wasn’t too long ago Southgate picked Livermore to play in that role and Hayden is far superior to him.

Bloody hell, the lad's had about 7 good games. I don't deny his form has been good, but howay.

Yea but that’s what I’ve said. The main points were I agree with Rafa: IF he continues his form he has the potential to play for England even if only because our holding midfielders are absolutely s***.

rice is a better player in the holding role like, hayden made progress in his overall game last season though

Hayden doesn't use the ball well enough to play for England
"Lots of young fellas runnin' around in shorts, that's the kind of think you like looking at, and I bet you like that too, only you're probably imagining what they'd look like without shorts, you're sitting there imagining that with a big smile on your face, ya dirty fecker"

do we have anyone who uses the ball well in CM?  probs need to give foden a run sooner rather than later, seems to be one of the main things we're missing to me

He's better suited to being a "destroyer" type than a typical holding midfielder anyway imo

Agree with that.  I’ve always thought his main strengths are his mobility and being able to snuff out attacks breaking from midfield, or just genrally closing the ball down really quickly.  His best games for us have been when he’s been allowed to get around the pitch winning the ball rather than just sitting there protecting the defence.

Yes, I agree with you both. Would develop nicely into what Mascherano was for Rafa at Liverpool if he were to stay.

Big fan of when Hayden will slide and win the ball when you think he has no business winning it, really awesome.
