At Last – Some Good News For Newcastle

After John Carver came out in his press conference today and shocked everybody by saying that Paul Dummett was out for between 10 and 12 weeks with his knee injury, and we are still awaiting the news on Cheick Tiote – who is likely to miss as much if not more time than Paul, – it was really good news to see that 19 year-old Rolando Aarons is back in training with the first team squad.

Rolando Aarons in action at the Etihad Stadium in late October

Rolando was great in pre-season and in the five appearances he made for the club before picking up a hamstring injury in September. which has plagued him ever since.

So we hope it is now fully healed, which it wasn’t when he was brought back for the League Cup tie far too early, at Manchester City in late October.

Rolando started training earlier this week, so it will be interesting to see if he is on the bench for the game at Manchester City on Saturday.

Players like Ryan Taylor and Rolando are coming back from injury, but the problem Newcastle have is in defense where we are now acutely short of back four players.

And it was a huge blow that Paul Dummett is out for up to three months because he could play anywhere across the back four.

But John Carver and the coaches and the players just have to get on with it now – since there’s not much that can be done about the situation now.

It’s very good news that we have Rolando Aarons back in training again.

    Can we have a round up of possible theories regarding just exactly why MA is buying Rangers?

    I too cannot get my head around it. There is nothing. No money no sponsorship potential no chance of an improvement either. Amateur level football.

    Maybe, and I can’t explain how, but maybe he is trying to get Rangers included into the English leagues system? They and the SFA are already well peed off at each other.

    It’d be a very cheap prem club with access to a huge stadium and fan base and a brand which might be still somewhat a legacy.

    It would take a few years but he could climb from Conference to Premier league quite rapidly, with the profits he will make by selling us!!! (He would have to sell us of course)

    Ashley’s no doubt keen to have young Rolando back in the frame.

    He’ll want him in the shop window and hope for the stellar displays that’ll attract big offers for the lad

    Somehow I can’t see Rangers coming into the English game via the bottom rungs of the ladder.

    A newly formed British Premiership yes, but the lower English leagues, no.

    Its no mystery. Clearly with Rangers even less investment than is necessary at Newcastle guarantees Champions League exposure to a worldwide audience for SD.
