Pardew Could Be Forced To Use Newcastle Youngsters


The big plus for Newcastle United so far this season – and there haven’t been too many – not yet anyway – is the emergence of 18 year-old Rolando Aarons on the left wing.

The 18 year-old Kingston, Jamaica born youngster has looked terrific playing in the Newcastle first team, and his top form has already attracted two big clubs – Liverpool and Manchester City – who are said to be watching the youngster.

Rolando’s sub appearance in the last quarter of the game last time out at St. James’ Park, transformed Newcastle into a more attacking side, and the younger scored one and one for Mike Williamson.

Mike got his very first goal for Newcastle after almost five years on Tyneside – and it should have been the winner.

If we could have just held the lead for another couple of minutes and won the game against Crystal Palace – things would have been a lot more positive during the International break.

But it wasn’t to be, and the goings on during Monday, September 1st – the final day of the transfer window – didn’t go down too well with Newcastle fans either.

The Newcastle youngster also got his first cap for the England U20 side last week, and played well in that game too and also scored.

If Aarons keeps playing the way he has been since the summer, he could even get an early baptism in the England U21 side.

With the terrible injury suffered by Siem de Jong lasy week, Alan Pardew will need to look at who can score some goals for us in Siem’s absence, and the two lads who immediately come to mind are Rolando and local lad – 17 year-old Adam Armstrong.

Adam scored two very good goals for the England U18 side last week and looked very sharp.

The Southampton game is very important to Newcastle, but it’s even more important for manager Alan Pardew, who is already under some  pressure from fans, after the last two seasons haven’t exactly been great.

We’ll see how Pardew is looking at the current situation  when the team is announced at 2:00 pm on Saturday afternoon for the game at St. Mary’s, but we would have thought the 18 year-old Aarons would be starting that game.

If he starts on the bench, that would signify Alan is still stuck in playing his more experienced players in front of in-form youngsters, and that wouldn’t be good.

We hope Alan starts Rolando on Saturday and we also hope we can get an unlikely win.

That would most definitely lift the spirits of Newcastle supporters, after a less than stellar start to the season.

What do you think?

    The Mag is laughable now. Anyone can write content, and there doesn’t really appear to be any monitoring of the articles. It is generally sensationalist garbage, with very little to back any of it up. It used to much better when it was just the print version and there was editorial consideration put into it.

    As for the Sack Pardew website, I’m not sure what they need money for, their previous campaign surely didn’t cost anything. It was just people sending in photos. I’d want to actually know in advance what they planned to do with the cash before I even considered donating!

    Their are far better causes to give money to, and if I was to donate money to an NUFC related cause, I’d be much more likely to support the trust who are active in the community and working towards better football governance all round.

    Mr Mojo,It is a genuine paypal account when accessed by a lap top, if the lads motives aren’t genuine a couple of quid isn’t going to break the bank.
    Lil,
    I think the money is for a giant flag.

    Jail,
    Where will the flag go though? I thought most banners just get confiscated at SJP nowadays, and it will be pretty tough to smuggle in a giant flag!! Banners were removed from fans in some of the away games last year as well if I remember right!!

    Maybe we could hang it from the Tyne Bridge like one of those cheesy proposal things that people seem to enjoy doing!!

    On topic, I’d be happy to see Arma get more game time. With SDJ out, I think if Pardew wants to persist with the 4231 then Rivi, Cabella and Aarons should play just off Arma, with Rivi almost playing as a second striker rather than the slightly deeper attacking midfielder we have been using so far.

    Shameless plug for my friends tour group, but it is also a cracking experience for anyone wanting to travel who also loves football. I promise I won’t do this often (maybe twice), but he has just released a date for his 2015 tour, so I said I’d share it about……

    Jail,
    Yeah, I imagine a giant flag would be harder to smuggle in though!

    Still, if they put up more details then I’d be more willing to consider it.

    On topic – difficult to see how Tiote would start – he doesn’t play ’til Wednesday and then presumably will have a long flight back – assuming he gets home by Friday he will then be off to Southampton the next day – he will be kn*ckered!

    As much as i have now definately joined the pardew out side, there is NO WAY on this or any other planet i am spending my hard earned money on trying to oust him any faster. Ashley will do it in his own time or not at all, no amount of money will alter that.
