There’s Real Concerns About This Newcastle Youngster

News today that Rolando Aarons looks to be losing his battle to be fit for the game at Liverpool on Monday night, and as we know he’s been out with hamstring injuries since back on November 1st – when we played Liverpool at home, and there’s now a possibility he may not even return this season – although Carver thinks he will play again before the end of May.

Rolando Aarons – still not fit

Rolando has played only 5 times this season because of all the injuries, and there has to be a concern about his fitness, after he’s had lots of hamstring problems this season.

When the 19 year-old has been close to coming back several times over the last five months – he’s had relapses and has never made it back.

John Carver thinks he will be back before the end of the season:

“With the amount of time he has been out, we have to take it carefully with him.” “He’s had a good week. He looks comfortable, if a little bit rusty.”

“He’s working extremely hard.” “And he will be back before the end of the season.”

If there are any doubts with Aarons,  the medical staff shouldn’t take any chances, and this all seemed to start when Alan Pardew played him at Manchester City in late October in the League Cup, and Alan admitted that was against the medics’ advice.

And then he came on against Liverpool three days later, replacing the injured Gabby Obertan in the first half, and we haven’t seem him since.,

So we are now paying a heavy price for playing a player who was injured.

And that points to another serious problem at Newcastle – why we have a lot more injuries than any other Premier League club, and we really should be looking in the summer at why that’s  the case.

But the way Newcastle are run, we’re pretty sure a review will not be done, and it will all be put down to bad luck – and then next season the same thing will happen again.

Don’t talk about continuous improvement and Newcastle United in the same sentence – that’s an oxymoron.

    If he signed that contract I bet his hamstring would get better pretty quick.

    “Hamstring” normally takes a couple of weeks. Lasted all season with him while he refuses to sign contract, now he’s wanting to play against Liverpool ? Fed up with this kid. We KNOW what he’s doing

    Oh Jeffrey, you’ve let us down and not applied your linguistic prowess to translating the lequipe article!

    However and not being the genius like wot you are, here’s a translation fro Google.

    According to British media, supporters of Newcastle United are considering a massive boycott the next home game of their club against Tottenham Hotspur, at the 33rd day. An action in protest against club owner Mike Ashley, and lack of results. The club is currently 13th in the Premier League and remains on a series of four consecutive defeats.

    ‘A campaign was launched on social networks, so the stage is as empty as possible, while the game will be broadcast live on television. Demonstrations, will also take place around St James Park before and after the meeting, so that those who wish to continue to support their team can express their discontent.’

    Either he will be money in the bank this summer or “Like a new signing” for next year. If he does paly this season, he won’t come on until Cisse is back. He knows it will be futile without NUFC’s only tested striker.
