Hayden Mullins

Squad Number: 17
Position: Midfielder
Born: 27th Mar 1979 (Reading)
Signed: 22nd Oct 2003 (£600,000)
Contract: Details unknown
Previous Club: Crystal Palace

Hayden Mullins was signed by Alan Pardew (initially on loan) in October 2003 from Crystal Palace for a fee of £600,000. He could have been forgiven for initially regretting that decision as his former side beat the Hammers in the 03/04 Play-Off Final to reach the Premiership just seven months later.

The perfect example of a 'utility man', Mullins has played all across the back and in the centre of midfield for the Hammers, although he favours the holding midfield role and it is there where he has played his best football for the club.

That failure to hold down a regular position lead to irregular spells on the bench in the promotion season but since reaching the Premiership, Mullins has silenced his doubters with a string of accomplished performances and looks set to continue his partnership with Nigel Reo-Coker in the centre of midfield for the foreseeable future.

2008/09 Match Notes & Ratings

2-0 v Hartlepool United (a) 24th January 2009
by John Simkin

(Replaced Di Michele, 75 mins) Helped to close the game down when he was brought on for Di Michele.

3-1 v Fulham (h) 18th January 2009
by John Simkin

(replaced Collison, 83) No comments.

3-0 v Barnsley (h) 3rd January 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Straight out of the book marked “basic Mullins performances”. Including the booking picked up for getting caught wrong side.

2-1 v Stoke City (h) 28th December 2008
by East Stand Martin

(replaced Parker, 77) Came in for the tiring Parker and did his usual job.

2-1 v Stoke City (h) 28th December 2008

(replaced Parker, 77) Came in for the tiring Parker and did his usual job.

0-0 v Portsmouth (h) 15th November 2008
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Parker, 75) Did his usual defensive shore-up job in the last 15.

0-0 v Portsmouth (h) 15th November 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Parker, 75) Did his usual defensive shore-up job in the last 15.

1-1 v Middlesbrough (a) 1st November 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Had a fine first half – if you ignore the air-shot that led to the goal. Perhaps guilty of defending too deep after the interval.

2-1 v Fulham (a) 28th September 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Etherington, 80) Came in for the last few minutes to bolster things up in the middle. Did so.

3-1 v Newcastle United (h) 20th September 2008
by Alex Shilling

(replaced Parker, 72) Performed the same role as Parker to equal effect.

3-1 v Newcastle United (h) 20th September 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Parker, 72) Replaced the impressive Parker but slotted in well and even found time to play some decent passes.

4-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 30th August 2008
by East Stand Martin

(replaced Noble, 81) The rock that Curbishley turns to in times of strife. Once again he did his job.

4-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 30th August 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Noble, 81) Steady run out that tightened things up in the closing stages.

4-1 v Macclesfield Town (h) 27th August 2008
by Graeme Howlett

His passing was limited but he did manage some good long-range shots.

0-3 v Manchester City (a) 24th August 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Sears, 46) Replaced Sears to share the second half’s “bringing the ball out of defence before losing it” duties with Parker.

0-3 v Manchester City (a) 24th August 2008
by Alex Shilling

(replaced Sears, 46) Kept midfield together well in second half, but defence always likely to ship goals in second half with only one central midfielder on the pitch.

2-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 16th August 2008
by Nick Bull

(replaced Parker, 73) Didn’t really register in the spell he was on.

2-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 16th August 2008

(replaced Parker, 73) Excellent when he came on. Competed for everything, got stuck in, everything you could ask of a substitute.

2-3 v MLS AllStars (n) 25th July 2008
by Graeme Howlett

Fairly disappointing performance from a player looking nervously over his shoulder.

 

2007/08 Match Notes & Ratings

1-4 v Manchester United (a) 3rd May 2008
by Gordon Thrower

The game passed him by really.

1-4 v Manchester United (a) 3rd May 2008
by Alex Shilling

Same as above, only worse. Completely outrun by Carrick and Man U midfield, didn't get any grip on midfield at all. Spent most of game covering back for defence, admittedly.

0-1 v Portsmouth (h) 8th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Also poor. Lost possession too much and won little in midfield.

1-2 v Sunderland (a) 29th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Another one who worked very hard but occasionally let himself down with his distribution.

1-1 v Everton (a) 22nd March 2008
by Graeme Howlett

Worked hard to frustrate Everton sitting in front of the back four.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 17th March 2008
by Alex Shilling

Hard to call between him and Parker, but Parker just edges it for the attacking threat he posed. Mullins was far from anonymous though, and good to see he's got over his fear of shooting from the edge of the box.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 17th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Steady enough. One nice through ball late on.

0-4 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 10th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Stuck to it as much as possible but then undid any good work by cching the defensive malaise for the third goal.

0-4 v Chelsea (h) 1st March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Disappeared completely in that first half spell.

1-0 v Fulham (a) 23rd February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Did the usual Mullins thing but his distribution wasn’t the best today and he got caught out of position a few times.

1-1 v Birmingham City (h) 9th February 2008
by East Stand Martin

Did the foot in stuff as usual.

1-1 v Birmingham City (h) 9th February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Did the foot in stuff as usual.

1-0 v Wigan Athletic (a) 2nd February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Apparently the stats before this match gave him a completed pass rate of over 94%. I shudder to think what the stats are after, which just goes to show: 1) how bad the pitch was, 2) that Mullins was not at his best and 3) stats like this are a load of rubbish.

2-1 v Fulham (h) 12th January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Some good Mullins-esque interceptions but his passing was a bit off-target today.

0-0 v Manchester City (h) 5th January 2008
by Jacob Steinberg

He won't win you a game, but he helped to ensure the midfield battle was closely fought.

0-0 v Manchester City (h) 5th January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Usual steady performance but was a bit wayward with a couple of passes.

0-2 v Arsenal (a) 1st January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Did his usual job but tended to drop too deep for my liking.

2-1 v Manchester United (h) 29th December 2007
by East Stand Martin

I lost count of the number of times he got a vital foot in to stop a through ball. Ought to have scored though.

2-1 v Manchester United (h) 29th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

He should have scored early on, but his game was more about harrying the opposition into mistakes.

1-1 v Reading (h) 26th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

He doesn't tend to have bad games so much- it's just that at home, when the onus is attack, he struggles to live up to expectations.

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

Gave away both the ball and free kicks too often.

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Did all the quiet donkey work in the middle as is his wont.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 1st December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Another good one. Like Gabbidon, this was the sort of thing we were seeing him do two seasons ago.

1-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 24th November 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Another who got in some decent challenges in the middle. The unsung hero type stuff.

1-1 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 4th November 2007
by Graeme Howlett

Some sloppy passing before he was scythed down towards the end of the first half, resulting in his substitution.

2-1 v Coventry City (a) 30th October 2007
by Graeme Howlett

Had an okay first half before being substituted at the break.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by Alex Shilling

Did everything that was required of him, but you do feel that we would have got more out of the game with Noble on from the start.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by East Stand Martin

Brought in for his experience, a decent effort.

0-1 v Arsenal (h) 28th September 2007
by Josh Tappin

(replaced Parker, 45) The midfield had more shape once he was on.

3-0 v Middlesbrough (h) 15th September 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Much-maligned in certain quarters for me he was the pick of the midfield today. Got his foot in and, as the game progressed, his distribution was excellent – particularly out to the left.

3-0 v Reading (a) 1st September 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

In the absence of Parker and Dyer, he’s been given a chance to make his mark. A bustling display suggests he’s getting back to his best.

3-0 v Reading (a) 1st September 2007
by East Stand Martin

Another one of those unsung hero performances that, whilst they don’t catch the eye, are so important for the side.

2-1 v Bristol Rovers (a) 28th August 2007
by Graeme Howlett

A typical Mullins effort; passed the ball wall and made several vital interceptions.

1-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 25th August 2007
by East Stand Martin

The usual water carrier performance that goes unnoticed. Sacrificed in the pursuit of a more attacking formation.

1-0 v Birmingham City (a) 18th August 2007

Solid and unspectacular. Got his foot in and laid it off.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (a) 17th March 2007
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Noble, 45) A good substitution by Caurbishley that ultimately paid dividends. Offered far more than Noble had previously.

I wasn’t convinced that it would work with him and Quashie in the same side. I was right.

3-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 6th January 2007
by Nick Bull

Quiet and unassuming by default, his goal showed a great attacking prowess from the normally defensive player.

3-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 6th January 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Did the “Mullins role” well and got forward well at the end for a nice glanced-header of a goal.

1-2 v Portsmouth (h) 26th December 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

Where has his form gone? His passing was atrocious and he failed to get to grips with their midfield.

0-0 v Fulham (a) 23rd December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Guilty of dwelling on the ball a bit too much today. A couple of good clearances at the end though.

1-0 v Manchester United (h) 17th December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Not 100% but still got stuck in and wasn’t overawed by the (so-called) illustrious opposition.

0-2 v Everton (a) 3rd December 2006
by Nick Bull

Quiet, but nowhere as bad as other team-mates.

0-2 v Everton (a) 3rd December 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

Solid first half, marred by poor second- he gave the ball away too much and Osman was left free to score.

1-0 v Sheffield United (h) 25th November 2006

Another excellent performance capped with a deserved goal. harshly booked.

Mullins did what he is asked to do. Yes – he may not create much, but that isn’t his job.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Not overawed by the opposition and not afraid to dish out a spot of revenge when the law enforcement task proved to be beyond Dean.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

Worked extremely hard and made his fair share of tackles.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

A decent defensive display but the onus to create fell upon him too much- and ultimately proved beyond him.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

Hayden played a big role in last weekend's win over Blackburn, and his performance today was just as effective. He sat in front of the back four today picking up anything that came his way. Had one great chance to score but he dragged his shot wide of the left-hand post.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Reasonably anonymous although he made several vital tackles and interceptions. His late goal proved to be the winner; full marks for persistence and determination.

Failed to impose himself against a side that he should have been comfortable against.

Mullins playing as Mullins. Quiet but effective, as per.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 22nd October 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Solid enough but still lacks quality in distribution.

0-2 v Portsmouth (a) 15th October 2006

Did his usual solid thing in the middle and was another who might have scored.

0-2 v Portsmouth (a) 15th October 2006

One of the better players in claret and blue.

0-1 v Reading (h) 1st October 2006

Mullins doing what Mullins does best.

0-1 v Reading (h) 1st October 2006
by East Stand Martin

Back in the side in place of Javi Mascherano the former Palace man put in a decent performance, winning plenty of ball and showing the kind of urgency that Mascherano is perhaps yet to indicate he has come to terms with.

0-2 v Manchester City (a) 23rd September 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Ferdinand, 22) Average in a disliked position.

0-2 v Manchester City (a) 23rd September 2006

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Mears, 67) Forced into an unfamiliar right-back role he did ok. Unique amongst those who took part in the match in that Parker actually got booked when he kicked him.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Mears, 67) Good to see Hayden play again. I want to see him start, even if it means to defensive players in the centre of the park.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Mears, 67) Many would shiver at the thought of Mullins playing at right-back again. But to be fair, he didn't really put a foot wrong today.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

(Replaced Mears, 67) I feel sorry for him. He is a far better footballer right now than the captain and has done nothing deserving of a place on the bench. Ok, Mascherano is obviously a better player. Doesn’t mean they can’t play together.

1-1 v Aston Villa (h) 10th September 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Normal game is win the ball lay it off. Today it was win the ball. Lose it. Passing none too great either.

1-1 v Aston Villa (h) 10th September 2006
by Nick Bull

Fired up, determined and did what Hayden Mullins does best.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Nick Bull

Not afraid to get stuck in, regardless of the strength of the Liverpudlian midfield.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Did hid protective role as usual in his normal unassuming style – though I’d have loved him to have launched Garcia into row Z if only to teach the cheat just what it feels like when contact is made!

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Got his foot in well when the ball was on the ground but the pressing game of the home side saw him rush many of his passes.

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by East Stand Martin

Given little time and space on the ball, Mullins had a tough night as part of a three-man midfield. His distribution was poor at times and he struggled to impose himself on the game.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006

Another great effort in the hole. He also cropped up in vital positions further forward, such as when his interception began the move which led to the first goal.

by Richard Osborne

Dedication/application/commitment he has the lot... in droves.

2-1 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 15th March 2006

Top-notch effort protecting the back four. Some excellent distribution to boot.

1-4 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 11th March 2006
by Graeme Howlett

Very quiet. Didn’t do much and the game does seem to have passed him by recently. Got more involved in the second-half with a few timely tackles, a bit of hustle causing turnovers and a few attempts on goal. However, really didn’t make much of an impact in stopping the rampaging Bolton midfield, especially in the last 15 minutes of the first-half. The fact the game passes him by is probably mainly due to the fact that we don’t seem to play through the middle much anymore.

2-2 v Everton (h) 4th March 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Did the ball-winning thing fairly well though again distribution wasn’t the greatest.

Muscled out of the game by Bolton's big lads and definitely came off second best on a number of occasions. Still, we can allow the odd average performance after the season he's had so far.

3-0 v Birmingham City (h) 13th February 2006
by Gordon Thrower

A good half despite being treated as a punchbag every time he went up for a header. Might have scored before going off injured during the interval.

3-0 v Birmingham City (h) 13th February 2006

Another solid performance despite being withdrawn at the break after suffering sore ribs after a first half challenge. One or two sublime passes were his main points of note.

2-0 v Sunderland (h) 4th February 2006

The usual solid performance. Probably single-handedly responsible for breaking up what few breaks that Sunderland were able to muster.

Similar to NRC in performance though he possibly had a slightly better second half.

2-1 v Aston Villa (a) 14th January 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Another good battling performance in the middle. After his goal against Norwich he seems to have got the taste for goals as well – one goal-bound effort was blocked in the first half whilst his second-half effort resulted in the penalty.

Excellent stuff and was a mite unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet with his early effort went wide. Quietly effective for most of the match, he is almost becoming something of an unsung hero.

Did okay. Wasn’t expecting much given some of the views I’d heard but won a lot of tackles, even after a couple of attempts, showing that he’s not a quitter.

2-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 23rd October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

A couple of half chances and did the usual tidy job in the middle that we’ve come to expect from him this season, though another side might have punished his occasional tendency to dwell on the ball.

Cool, calm and collected. The most relaxed player on the pitch.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Although he has undoubtedly begun the season well he still has a worrying tendency to dwell on the ball when he has won it. This is something that he needs to work on as when he gets caught the results can be disastrous – as with the second goal in this match.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005

Not really at the races and definitely not comfortable being put under pressure in his own half. Dallied on a clearance which led to City's second goal.

0-0 v Arsenal (h) 24th September 2005

Worked hard to nullify the threat from Flamini and Gilberto - and did so effectively. The only criticism of Mullins would be his passing (although in fairness he pulled off one or two fabulous 50-yard deliveries).

Anothre good game for Mullins, who to many has proved the surprise package this season. He also foundtime to show off his array of passes, pinging 50 yards balls to the front men a la Beckham against Northern Ireland in that ill-fated match last week.

4-0 v Aston Villa (h) 12th September 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Has a lot of detractors, possibly because the job that he does is not one that immediately catches the eye. However he got through a prodigious amount of work and when one watches the flair of those such as Yossi one should remember the efforts of those like Mullins who allow them to perform.

1-0 v Preston North End (n) 30th May 2005

Another strong outing in his proper position though it could be said he was lucky to stay on the pitch. I’ve seen others walk for what he did when fouled by O’Neil. Notably Repka.

Redemption for Mullins, who was outstanding in his favoured central role. Could be one to make way for the expected influx of new players however.

2-0 v Ipswich Town (a) 18th May 2005

Probably one of the quietest on the field, but did his job. Reverted to right-back after Repka left the field late in the second half.

Hayden has looked a far better player since reverting to his more natural central midfield berth. Replaced in a half-time reshuffle that saw the introduction of Matthew Etherington.

aka Hayden 'I Can't Dance Either' Mullins - he called Home Owner Loans and they consolidated his debt in to one easy monthly payment. Two Little Boys.

2-1 v Wigan Athletic (a) 2nd April 2005
by East Stand Martin

Performed the midfield anchor role admirably. Efficient - if not spectactular - he benefitted from playing in his favoured position. Broke up the play but could perhaps be fiercer in the tackle. Should in my opinion make way for Etherington and allow Noble to grace the central-midfield berth alongside Reo.

by Gordon Thrower

Best match in a while for the oft-maligned utility player who was at right-back for this match. Looked as if he might have problems with Daren “Nephew of Tony” Currie early on but he stuck to his task and Currie (Darren not Tony – Tony has been retired for many years now) faded as the game progressed.

2-2 v Rotherham United (a) 28th December 2004
by Sicknote

Still don't see him as a right-back; this may have been part of the reason Rotherham got in so many crosses. If he is played out of position then you can't expect him to be the finished article.

2-2 v Rotherham United (a) 28th December 2004
by Graeme Howlett

In at right-back today. Did nothing massively wrong, but again unwilling to take on attackers. We only got the ball away on the right when we had three of ours up against two opponents.

3-2 v Nottingham Forest (h) 26th December 2004
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Ferdinand, 71) Poor Hayden had been thrown from pillar to post since joining the Hammers - yet never appears to complain.

I detect a trend amongst opposition sides who have noted that Hayden is not the greatest in the air. However he dealt well with the long aerial ball played in his direction.

2-1 v QPR (h) 6th November 2004
by [HH]

He went on a run up the right-wing at 1-0 in the second period and lost the ball 10 yards into QPR's half after a terrible touch whilst dribbling. QPR then countered. Luckily Repka was at hand to hold up play whilst Mullins restored himself to right-back. He kept to his defensive duties though, although didn't seem 'compatible' with Chadders.

He should be playing his heart out as Mackay has his spot when he comes back. He's sh*t. My Dad can tackle harder. Just some of Paddy's pre-match comments which had me chuckling away as it was clear he was never going to agree with fellow KUMBer Upton O'Good's view of Mullins' game. I thought he wasn't great, but done his job. Definitely not a full-back though.

Never too sure that Hayden performs at his best at full-back, but he keeps on going. If we do eventually bring in Maurice Ross from Rangers hopefully he'll revert back into the centre of midfield to compete with Nowland for the right to partner Reo-Coker. Substituted early in the second half; may have picked up an injury.
