Matthew Hayden opens his mouth

And an arse falls out. Someone should tell Matthew Hayden to try and blend into the scenery if he ever sees a tape recorder or a microphone in the vicinity.

“When you get to my age, you get to a point where the next 12 months is a long, long way away.”

Not all of it, surely Matthew? Okay, we can see that next October’s quite a way away. But December? That’s not long away. Tomorrow? That’s fairly near. One second’s time? That’s already gone. Does that second seem a long, long way in the past now, Matthew?

He continues:

“But having said that, I’ve been really process-driven right throughout my career. It’s all been about how I was going to present myself for this Test and whether I was in good shape to play it. I feel like both of those are crossed off.”

You heard it from the man himself: Matthew Hayden is process-driven.

We can only presume that the process that’s driving him is the one he’s going through in order to become the biggest guff-talking tool in human history.

We’ll miss Hayden when he goes. He’s like a lightning rod for all our blind fury.

7 Appeals

  1. I half suspect that you’ll shed a tear or two when Hayden retires – I bet you love him really, and all of this bile is just a defence mechanism because you know he’d only hurt you, like all the others….

    …or maybe not.

  2. the process of being a dickhead.

    having said that, for a very brief period, ie. the 5th day of the last test vs. India, I didn’t really hate him all that much.

    Pretty sure he’d hurt us in some manner.

  4. Please carry on without minding…am just enjoying the play.

  5. Perhaps Hayden can move on to a career in public speaking when he retires.

  6. US Presidents (and their entourages) have been known to talk similar levels of balderdash.

  7. From the same interview:

    “It’s all been about how I was going to present myself for this Test and whether I was in good shape to play it. I feel like both of those are crossed off.”

    “The achilles injury I did suffer was a serious one and I guess it took a few boxes to be ticked for me to start playing my best cricket.”

    Can anyone explain why Hayden needs to cross or tick boxes in order for him to play cricket (or as he puts it, to ‘present’ himself for a test)?
