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.
