Good News – But Top Teenager Mustn’t Be Rushed Back


Rolando Aarons has had a start-stop season, mostly stop –  and it could be that it becomes a dead season for him like it has for Siem de Jong, and if the 19 year-old cannot make it back from his hamstring problems – it may be best to rest up and start again in pre-season and hopefully the hamstring will have recovered fully by then.

Rolando Aarons, Newcastle United

Rolando Aarons in action this season – sensational form

We must admit to being just  a little concerned that he may have weakened his hamstring this season – but hopefully not.

Rolando still has one year left on his first contract at Newcastle and he was simply outstanding when he played for Newcastle in pre-season and in the five games he has played this season with two great goals.

Rolando has had two breakdowns in trying to return from his hamstring problems – but the most important thing is to be fully fit before he plays again.

It seems that Rolando is again approaching the time when he could be fully fit and can play again for the first team, and that’s some good news – since we need some players to start scoring goals in the absence of Papiss Cisse, who’s now suspended for the next seven games.

This is part of what Rolando has said today :

“I don’t really want to put a date on it because every time I do it ends up being the week after or the week after and people wonder about it,”

“But I’m going to say I’m hopeful I’m back for the derby though!” “The last five months have been difficult. It’s crazy when everyone starts talking about you but then people forget.”

“I have injury problems but it’s important that I don’t rush back.” “You see what happened last time, I can’t afford to do that.” “The physios are working hard and everyone is working hard to make sure it’s done properly this time.”

The derby game against Sunderland is on April 5th,  and the goal for that game has to be that we put an end to the run of four wins by Sunderland.

And when you realize they have won those four games while the Black Cats have been fighting relegation as they are right now – it doesn’t reflect well on Newcastle’s performances.

There are 10 games left this season and it would be good to get Rolando back – but he shouldn’t be rushed back if he is not 100% ready – and his long term future at Newcastle is the most important thing.

It will simply be a bonus if we can get Rolando playing for us again with the form he showed in early season, when he was simply sensational. 😀

    Konate could be decent signing, he covers a lot of space, but he’s more like Sissoko in no 10 role than a striker. Potential.

    Papy seem like African Willo – 73 % pass accuracy . He 26as well. So would much rather go for Sane brothers if we look at that age category.

    The blog is very quiet these days, no wonder with Mash sucking the life out of the club.
    There’s not a lot to get excited about tbo.

    Toon kk it’s got a lot to do with posters like jeff who have an obvious agenda to be antagonistic to random blog posters and scare them off with his seemingly ‘ intellectual’ musings. Never mind that he’s obvious and would be broke if Google charged 1p for searches, and that most of his agents end up backfiring, he has the desired effect of killing off the interest in posting, along with the random complainers of Eds ‘ journalism’ which is in itself a point missed,as he’s just putting up any nufc-attached rumour as it’s conducive to debate.

    It may not be Ruddy/Ciaran but it kinda looks like it.

    All is not well with Huber Fournier Lyon’s replacement for Remi Garde.
    Garde’s 3 former assistants Gerald Baticle Bruno Genesio and Joel Bats who remain at Lyon are getting on his wick apparently.
    Baticle has been overheard with a cd player practising his English !!! lol
    Tensions are running high at the Rhone valley club.

    Message for Ashley…….

    Paul Clement’s words describing a particular club:

    ‘[It gets] Massive crowds, massive expectation to win every game, to play well from the first minute to the last minute and to deliver trophies as well.’

    Now which crowd could that be Mr Ashley? Yes it could describe Newcastle United but you’ve almost choked the life out of the Club and its fans.

    No it’s not all jeff fault 😀

    The state of affairs at nufc top to bottom is so pathetic that all we have now is match day rants to look forward to ( of back on), a bit of nostalgia and some random infighting. While that’s all very nice of course 🙂 it means that cup weeks and any other competitions from which we are excluded, are dull finger twiddling interludes. There’s no need of point in transfer speculation, new managers, new players, talent coming through the ranks, no exciting times to look forward to. Desperate. Just.. desperate.

    toon kk @5 – Personally other posters do not bother me it is just the general wave of negativity that greets every blog topic. I know we are not having a great season but it’s good to read some well thought out arguments (even if I don’t agree them) not just constantly slag off the manager and the owner at infinitum.

    Jonas is very diplomatic but , reading between the lines says Pardew was an insensitive knob after the second bout of surgery when all Guti wanted was to train with his mates and get his head back together.

    Team for the rest of the season :

    ————Abeid———Colback———–
    —Sissoko——–Cabella——–Aarons—
    ———————-Perez———————

    For me Obertan and Sammy have been poor lately and Sissoko has been anonymous in the middle of the park .

    I’m horrified by the lack of desire and passion at the club. Nothing to play for this season except pride and much of that is lacking. Carver may be a Geordie but he’s not head coach or manager material. That must be obvious by now to everyone except Lee and Mike.

    The way to show pride as a supporter is to not show up at the ground as long as Ashley is owner. Force the clown out by the only means available. Otherwise get ready for more discussions of the same sort on here.

    I hate to see that clown taking people’s money. And giving little or nothing in return. What has the club become? We sit 11th only because many of the teams below us are absolute dross just as we are. We have a horrendous goal difference season after season. We have an owner who has no football plan whatsoever. Boycott or live with a ghost of a club.

    There is a kind of institutional torpor at the club, a resigned attitude whereby losing matches like the derby or even the odd stuffing is just a ho-hum moment and we’re on to the next week, business as usual. it’s desensitising stuff.

    Of course Carver isn’t upto the head coach job, MA besides as being a cheaper option he probably thinks he’s giving the fans what they want by Carver being a geordie.

    With a winning rate around 20% Mike is going to find out that won’t keep us in the Prem toon kk mate. Carver has to go. Had enough of him.
