Top Newcastle Youngster To Be Given His Chance This Season

The big success story at Newcastle this season has been 18 year-old Jamaican-born left winger Rolando Aarons, and there’s news today a number of clubs would just love to take the skillful and speedy winger on loan this season.

Rolando Aarons – great skills and excellent attitude

That doesn’t surprise us too much,  and you only have to look at what he did last Sunday against top club Schalke to realize this lad is special.

And there’s news today that a number of clubs would like to take him on loan for this season, but Alan Pardew will keep him at the club,  and give him his chance this season.

We think he plays a lot like Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling, and it’s about time Newcastle had a youngster who is good enough to play in the first team, and not just as a substitute.

Rolando has been at Newcastle for two years now, since he was signed from Bristol City, and he has been one of our best youngsters at the club during that time.

His top form in pre-season means he started a lot of games for Newcastle, and his good form seems to have shocked the likes of Alan Pardew and John Carver.

It’s not only Rolando’s abilities that have been impressive to Newcastle officials, but his professional approach to the game, and he came back to pre-season super fit and had built himself up physically over the summer, and all that hard work seems to have paid off.

It’s time for Alan Pardew to give this lad his chance, and we’d be very surprised if Rolando is not in the squad for our first game against Manchester City a week tomorrow, and we’d like to see the 18 year-old start that game if he again plays well tomorrow against Real Sociedad.

If you are good enough then you are old enough.

Alan Pardew has yet to bring a young player through the youth ranks and into the first team as a regular starter, and we’d love to see Rolando Aarons do just that this season.

The 18 year-old Jamaican has certainly looked good enough in pre-season.

    He’s given a number 16 shirt. Guess he will be fine.

    Intergrate him as liverpool did with Sterling. We need to start bringing the young un’s through the ranks if we are to show success, not just for our first team but for the accademy as well

    History is being rewritten and Benny’s contribution will soon be downgraded to something meaningless!

    …It’s spin in motion and sadly some are eating it up raw. Soon they won’t even remember what is up and what is down at this once great club.

    *And Jeff is speaking monkey. Sad times indeed.

    At least this young kid seems to be a high point!

    Four points:

    1 – Why is it that a few of our young’uns seem to do well up to 18 years then all of a sudden, they’re not up to the first team squad unless they get show themselves up to it during a loan spell? Either our recruitment and coaching’s poor or there’s no transition phase between the under 21s and the first team.

    2 – As Saylor and Mbiwa are reported not to up to Prem standard, then why should they be blocking Streete’s progress to the first team? Either they’re good enough or they’re not and if not, don’t let them near the first team or get rid of ‘em!

    Though I do hope that young Aarons proves me wrong!

    3 – As we continue to ship goals by the boatload, surely we’ve a greater need for an able CB rather than a striker?

    4 – As far as Remy and Lacazette are concerned, if they’re not straining to join us now, then they never will have their hearts in Newcastle United. That being so, then the club should put an end to this pathetic charade now or make offers that will get one of ‘em in or identify a realistic target(s). Could the club be going through the motions just to fail to get a striker over the line.

    Jazzyp…I am probably at a point where it’s not the subject that saddens me but that the spin has worked!

    …I hate being taken for a foul or seeing others treated at such!

    * My statement ‘Though I do hope that young Aarons proves me wrong!’ should have followed point 1 in my previous post!

    That’s what comes of copy/pasting in a hurry. *blushing*

    Oh Jesper, you’ve no need to worry – nobody’ll take you for a ‘foul’. A fool maybe but never a foul!

    I don’t agree with you
    It’s too too early for him to start in the big matches
    maybe he can play 20 to 30 minutes in the second half
    the next season will be better for him than this one .

    Let’s not get over excited about this youngster, yes he is good but he was playing a schalke team who’s defenders were unfit, hence the reason they were playing pre-season friendlies. Were as Aaron has been doing extra training.
    Still hoping he will become the next Stirling as we certainly can do with a player like that.
