We Carried Threat Against Reds Because Of This Youngster


With Gabby Obertan being out for at least four months with his thigh injury, it will give a good chance to 18 year-old Rolando Aarons, and we expect the Kingston, Jamaica born winger to start at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

Rolando Aarons

Rolando Aarons in action against Liverpool

And if Alan Pardew keeps faith with our youngsters, we should see Sammy Ameobi on the other wing, and that will give Newcastle some real pace to counter attack West Brom on Sunday.

Newcastle have some wingers in form at the moment, so we shouldn’t miss Gabby Obertan too much, but the Frenchman played his best football ever at Newcastle this season, and he’s so unlucky to have suffered a serious injury at the exact wrong time for him.

Aarons received his second England U20 call-up only yesterday – so we are a little surprised they didn’t put him in the England U21 squad.

This is what Alan Pardew has said today about the 18 year-old:

“Luckily Aarons has returned from injury at a good time for us,” “We wouldn’t have had the same impact, I don’t think, without his pace if we had lost Gabby.”

“We have lost Gabby but gained him, and it becomes one for one, really.” “We still carried the threat against Liverpool, which is a fantastic tribute to Aarons, because he really hasn’t trained much.”

“To offer us the same threat as Gabby, in the form he’s in, was great for him, but it is a blow to us, make no mistake.”

It’s a great chance for Newcastle on Sunday to keep their fans happy with a 5th win in a row, before the two week International break.

And we must stand a decent chance of that – if the lads can play like we have in the last few games.

Both Sammy and Rolando could be key players for Newcastle on Sunday.

Here’s hoping we can win the game.

    Forward line of Aarons – Perez – Cabella from the start and substitute with Sammy, Cisse, Riviere or Goffran if they get tired. We need to play the ball in their half and not over commit players leaving the defense exposed.

    Common sense has prevailed. Thank goodness Alan Pardew has missed out on the latest Mnager of the Month award. Such absurd recognition would have obscenely hastened his unlikely renaissance.

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce wins the Manager of the Month award and the club can celebrate a double as Diafra Sakho wins the Player of the Month honour.

    Sam Allardyce may as well not be there, if he is having players and a brand of football forced upon him.

    They should probably give him his real title, ‘defensive coach’ with team selection privileges – those privileges under review should he stop listening to Sheringham’s advice.

    It says something when fans, staff & club hierarchy have to basically train their manager on the job, to play a brand of football that befits the modern game. (As we know all too well)

    Sam Allardyce will never change, all he knows is that lump-ball to Kevin Davies approach, and left to his own devices, will always resort to it.

    We have something similar in Pardew. A scout that is tasked with getting players to force Pardew into a more attacking approach, Ashley himself who Pardew has claimed wants more attacking football… it is clear what the fans want. Then with Pardew backed into a corner and pressured, he uses a few more attacking players in the team. (Counter-attacking being about as attacking as he can do)

    Jeff fro Benwell has changed his name because virtually nobody replied to his views on football because of his vile and unnecessary digs at other people, yet because he can’t hide his nasty and obnoxious personality here we have him in the guise of mag 92 wanting to talk football but not being able to stop himself from dishing out insults.

    Lesh,
    I don’t know why you are so against the sack Pardew lot, things couldn’t have carried on as they were, he had brought last season’s relegation form into this season and the Soton disgrace looked like the players had thrown the towel in. I don’t know how significant these protests are but the Lpool game last season with the march seen a gutsy display, the Chelsea game with all the flyers saw a very good 2-0 win and put a stop to people waving them about. Last season’s mass tirade against Pardew saw a 3-0 win followed by a decent performance at Anfield, a criticism that has been levelled at previous protest organisers is that they are doing it for personal limelight, that’s maybe why the sackpardew.com lot want to remain anonymous.

    I think it’s a bit petty to ask ‘where are they now’ if we are winning games with decent football then why would you sack him, unfortunately wearing obviously fake glasses is not a sack able offence.

    mag92…The word “seems” says it all. I don’t think it’s a case of fans not being happy at our recent turnaround, but it isn’t the first turnaround we’ve seen during Pardews tenure and he has always reverted to type sooner rather than later.

    I think fans have every right to be wary of when this bubble will burst, however, I’m sure most are hoping that it continues.

    expat…The blog has always had an element of that, but it’s got to the point now where the balance is way out of whack, making it very hard to actually discuss / debate anythign.

    Shame.

    mag92…Of course a loss is going to come. It’s not about a loss, for me anyway, it’s more about our approach to games, which recently has been greatly improved. I just hope Pardew doesn’t revert back in to his shell, which previously, after a run of say 6 games, he has done.

    Whilst I appreciate you’re entitled to counter what you perceive as negativity, your way in doing so is no better than those you criticise on this blog, imo. I’m pretty sure you even referred to your responses as school yard “you started it”. It just seems a waste of time and plays in to the whole WUM theory.

    Jail.

    Believe me, I’m as keen as anyone to see Newcastle United be a side that strikes fear into opposition is renowned for its entertaining football.

    But, until we have an owner who shares those wishes we’re stuck with mid-table mediocrity with Pardew or some other plodded as coach.

    The SackPardew brigade did its job by raising the club’s plight in the national media and yes, I’ve no doubt that it stirred Ashley into doing something about Pardew – kick him up the backside and tell him to change his ways and playing style. He did and fans have some optimism but will never be convinced by Pardew and Ashley.

    West Ham did that with Allardyce and lo, he’s been awarded Manager of the Month. I hope he has the grace to pass it on to Sheringham who’s responsible for WHU’s attacking football.

    Unlike West Ham which would have sacked Allardyce had things not changed, Ashley won’t sack Pardew unless things become desperate and that’s been confirmed by Pardew’s presence.

    The SackPardew campaign’s done its job and maybe it’s time to lie low until and if things go belly up again.

    In the meantime, they should encourage fans to support the lads on the pitch and be patient – Ashley and Pardew’ll be gone in time and all the pressure in the world won’t affect when that happens – Ashley’s our owner and Ashley does what Ashley wants to do when he’s ready to do it.

    Doing good, thanks. How about yourself?

    None of the experts, including football manager have us down for a win, at best a draw. Will likely be an even game.

    Lesh,

    To be fair to the sackpardew lot, they have always encouraged the fans protesting to back the team.

    I honestly feel like the club have been on the website. I certainly feel as though Pards has took a kick up the jacksy considering his change in approach to almost everything. The telling factor in all this will be after the next defeat. Will Pardew make excuses, or hold his hands up? The game following will we be back to negative football or will he keep pursuing this brand of counter attacking football we’ve seen recently.

    I hope we carry on as is, even when it doesn’t go our way. And, I hope Pardew continues to show humility in his interviews. The past few weeks have been a relatively nice time to be an NUFC fan.
