It’s Bad News On Rolando Aarons

Some bad news being reported today that Rolando Aarons has damaged his hamstring yet again, and will not be available to Newcastle until next month at the earliest.

Rolando Aarons

Rolando Aarons in action against Liverpool

The 18 year-old winger was one of the players who sustained injured last week in training, and he was not available for the game at West Brom on Sunday, and now the bad news is that he will be out for a number of weeks.

This is what the promising youngster has said on his Twitter account today:

“Everything happens for a reason. I’ll be back…again.”

Aarons has only recently had six weeks out with a hamstring injury, and the teenager had just returned for the game at Manchester City in the Capital One Cup, when he scored after just six minutes.

But it now looks like he could be out for another six weeks, and Newcastle medics will not rush him back, after what has happened.

Rolando either came back too early from the previous hamstring injury, or he has a weakness in the hamstring – or both.

But it is now very important that the hamstring be allowed to heal fully, which is why he may be out longer than expected.

That’s not good news, since the teenager is such a promising player for Newcastle.

Rolando has burst onto the scene this season starting with pre-season, and he has made five appearances for Newcastle and scored two goals.

    sure the points are welcome, and im very happy for players like abeid , perez and dummett, as if your prepared to do the searching you will not find one negative from me about any of them, I championed getting abeid in the team 2 years ago, as for the second pre season in a row he was our best player,

    perez , the start of the season, I wanted him in the team with Rivi, but no its one or the other.

    dummett has just got so much stick from so many on here , most of which was not warranted, as both Williamson and Janmaat were much worse, ( janmaat new to the league needed time to adjust ).

    tequila, transfer , dok

    regardless of the results, for the most part the football has been pretty poor, in fact it reminds me of the season we finished fifth, letting the players of the leash for 20-30 mins in the second half, first half is always a poor half, I watched the games and read the reports checked the stats,

    C Palace, we were at home, yet palace made subs trying to go for the win before we did, and they looked the better organised team

    Leicester c
    read the commets at the bottom

    spuds game, they created so many chances in the first half they should have been out of sight,

    Man C game, best NUFC game I have seen in a few years, not only the result, but the way the FULL team played. the sad fact about this game that has not really picked up on is the fact P45 admitted on TV he new perez would get no service , which is the same for any of our strikers most weeks

    Liverpool, between us and them in the first half, no one wanted to commit any bodies forward, both teams looked poor, both teams 3 shots on target, and we get 2 goals from ours

    west brom, again, a very poor first half with both teams not really pushing forward

    now im hearing P45 deserves Credit for this turn around, and I carnt help thinking this was not planned it has just been one big fluke, like I say, for me the football is pretty much the same, the formation, and lack of support, yeh oberan added a bit of speed, but still we as a team had very little end product.
    then you come to the fact he only made changes mainly due to injury and not good judgment,
    will Williamson get back in at the expense of dummett
    will Cisse get back in at the expense of Perez
    will Tiote get back in at the expense of Abeid
    the answer is probably yes,

    do I see Goofy dropped for very long, no sorry I don’t.

    He would deserve credit if he had the Balls to make these changes before they were forced on him.
    last season 11 games in we were 9th 17 points ,by xmas it fell to bits for almost 10 month

    the season before that we were 10th with 14 points and finished 16th , with another bad run from xmas

    right now at the same stage we are 8th, and have scored pretty much the same amount of goals as at this stage the 2 previous seasons, playing the same type off football,

    this is not about me wanting personal glory to say I told you so, this is about wanting to be proud of my team again, not just scraping by , win by going out on the pitch and being better than the other team, like we were VS Man C

    Young Aarons, out for another month? its bloody exasperating isnt it, they are so finally tuned, they can stretch any which way they like,yet pull up every 5 mins with injuries, very strange, Steve Black the old Falcons coach always said they do to much stretching in football, he said rugby players virtually dont ever pick up thigh or hamstring or calf injuries, yet at times they exert far more strain on their legs, it all needs to be looked at big time.

    This season Newcastle United, don’t have a prima donna called Remy, holding the club to ransom and worrying more about the World Cup,than playing for the team paying his wages or the equally moody Cabaye!

    I thought we had signed some super fitness guru who was going to prevent injuries this season?
    The absence of Santon, Williamson, Aarons, De Jong, Tiote, Taylor, Obertan etc seems to me that it is the same old, same old.
    No team can have THAT much bad luck season after season?
    Surely someone should be looking at why we have so many injuries, particularly in training? It can’t be rocket science I’d have thought.

    I’d disagree on the games. I think there has been much better performances than the year we came 5th. A lot of games that year were won on packing our half and relying on wonder or individual goals.

    The goals in recent games have been much better team moves, maybe not as exciting as Madrid or Dortmund on recent years but certainly much better than hoping benarfa or cisse smashed it in from 30 yards.

    There is still a lot more to do, to show he has truly began to learn and change, and it’s not just a one off, but the signs are much better for me anyway.

    Pardew said recently it might be training levels/ intensity being too high (think it was too high), can’t find the quotes.

    But these problems have existed here for years dispite a few upgrades of pitches and facilities, seems very high as an average. There must be some underlying problem.

    For me remy was good last year, just seemed to get in with playing and scored some vital goals. Never downed tools during a game, apart from refusing to play the final game according to reports.

    It’s just nice seeing a player like Perez who wants to be here and work hard for his place. Refreshing.

    The king admitted after the city game that he brought Rolando back too soon and against medical advice because he had a gut feeling he was ready.

    I bet they do some training on artificial surfaces. 3g is a killer if you don’t get the footwear right. I’ve heard a story or two about pro players wearing blades and firm surface boots and paying the price with ankle and knee damage.

    See poor old Adebayor is complaining that the fans boo’ed after their last game – he would prefer to play away from WHL as it is less pressure!!

    Poor cherub, bess him. 2 times the average Annual salaryevery week and he cant cope with a bit of booing – it makes your heart bleed for him.

    What a tart.

    Surely that should all be taken care of by the club though, surrey don’t let them wear unsafe footwear to train? It goes back long before 3G pitches were common though.


    Still think remy is pretty happy with Chelsea, seems to be ok with the situation. Agree cabaye doesn’t like it, won’t blame a player to try and better the self though, I’d rather they push to improve that be like Sunderlands has been a collecting a wage and winding down.

    guess who the blogger is who said this:

    ” i won 100 million dollars, but its in non-sequential bills, so im unhappy”…

    same thing as, “regardless of the results, for the most part the football has been pretty poor”…

    cmon, nothing will be up to your lofty expectations, no one is saying pards is the messiah, just saying its nice to have a 5 match winning streak, and hope it continues…

    If we have another good left winger his absence wouldn’t be so important but now we suffer from zero wingers syndrome(both left and right).Our team was a lot more weaker than the team couple of games ago even if we won that game against WBA.And injuries are not the only problem in the teams.There is something that is called tiredness and tiredness is stronger and stronger game by game and is pretty general affecting the whole team at once because of atomic football.

    It’s a real shame that our recent success which has largely has been down to using pace and pressing high has cost us both Obertan and now Aarons, both of whom have blistering pace and make the system work.

    I suppose Cabella, Sameobi, Riviere (out wide) and even Goofy can fill in but Obi and Aaarons are big losses no doubt. jus thope Perez, Abeid and Dummet (CB all day long) can keep their amazing performances going.

    Glad we’re not getting Moyes anyway!

    Sick of these people on here saying there now happy with the squad we have and don’t care if we get players in in January. We are no where near a complete squad. We desperately need a world class cb and a striker that can score 20 goals a season, who in our squad could do that now!?
    What happens if dummett and abeid stop playing well ? Pérez still too young and rivierie just not cutting it what will happen then ? Everyone in this blog will then start saying we have a shit squad.
    Look at the squads in this league and look at ours, we are no where near complete, actually worries me how incomplete we actually are

    So what’s wrong with our squad compared to the others, ours look a lot better than some of the others, what happens if dummett and abeid stop playing well, other supporters could say that about their teams, all we need is 15-20 goal season scorer.

    i really don’t know what all the fuss is about.

    Considering we haven’t spent that much money, compared to other teams, I think we are having a good season, after all we have only lost 3 games this season, Southampton is the only game this season where we were crap because we for 90 minutes we didn’t create any chances.

    Anyway, I’m so glad Ayoze Perez is doing well- I said in pre season that he looked like he could be a quality buy as he looked a natural finisher even then.

    I’ve been reflecting on the last few weeks trying to keep my ‘cup half full’ from overflowing.. Isn’t confidence an amazing thing,collectively? Quite honestly we look like, with a bit of the rub of the green, we could beat anybody in this league now, especially since there are so few teams stringing together anything like consistent form. The players are bang up for it that’s plain to see. It’s quite a while since I looked forward to the next game like this..

    You’re probably right about your suggested elixir, there’s so much anti-Pardew venom in his system that any treatment’d be to no avail.

    He’s beyond repair I fear, a basket case so it’s probably best to let him vent his spleen as long as he needs to.

    A thought, maybe a period of isolation on Ciaran’s blog might be best all round – he’d be in good company for its poster!

    We suddenly have more real depth than I can ever remember, but losing both Obertan and Aarons long term is very untimely, as it leaves just Cabella and Sammi, neither, who although improving greatly and possessing great feet and pace, seem capable of sustaining a presence or threat for 90 minutes, and we appear to need them to do exactly that and for a run of games.

    Perhaps Ayoze can provide cover out there, as well as centrally for Cisse. Otherwise, it’s a return to a more ponderous approach, you might well fear.

    Yeah heard that earlier on SSN. They said SA and Ghana are still in the running, well they were a few hours ago along with Algeria, Angola, Egypt, equatorial guinea and Nigeria.

    The mention of Nigeria got me thinking. Dangerous I know, but didn’t Sammy pledge his alligence to them? Pretty sure he did. So if he gets called up along with Abeid who’s country have basically qualified already,if cisse and tiote qualify also coupled with our injuries then our squad is looking rather light on the ground come January.

    BBC are reporting South Africa, Ghana & Egypt do not want to host the competition. Angola and Algeria could be in the running.
    Cannot see anyone wanting it at such short notice.
