More Depressing News on Newcastle’s Injury Front


The Shields Gazette are reporting today in an exclusive, that Rolando Aarons has suffered yet another setback in his efforts to return from a hamstring injury – and he will now be out for the rest of the season.

Rolando Aarons – out for the season
This was his last appearance against Liverpool


The Gazette is reporting that Rolando has suffered yet another hamstring injury, and he will not play again this season, with his last game being on November 1st as a substitute for the injured Gabby Obertan, in the home game against Liverpool – which we won 1-0.

Alan Pardew admitted after the 2-0 win at Manchester City three days before the Liverpool game, that he had played Rolando in the League Cup game against medical advice.

And it’s never good when you play players who are injured, because there’s a big risk it can make  a dodgy situation even worse.

But we’ve been worried for a few months now about Rolando’s hamstring problems and his inability to come back – and the injury has restricted the 19 year-old to only 5 games for the first team this season.

We are just hoping that the problem can be corrected in the summer by potentially visiting a specialist, and finding out what the underlying problem may be.

While we don’t want to be alarmist – we hope the youngster hasn’t weakened his hamstring permanently, and that happened to Michael Owen when he was still a teenager at Liverpool, and he was played when he had hamstring problems.

Rolando has one more year left on his contract at Newcastle,  and the club said they will resume contract talks with Aaron’s advisers in the summer, but first of all he will have to prove his fitness.

On the positive side of things, if Rolando can get fit over the summer, and put his hamstring problems behind him, he will be like a (great) new signing for us next season.

    Toons Fans – the Chronicle has just a few minutes ago published a multi -poll article -where fans can vote on numerous Toon related questions, including the boycott.
    At least visit the site and take part in the poll – lets your voice be heard.
    Stand up Geordie!
    Link to poll :-

    With injuries and poor form blighting the team, it is to the ‘so called’ Senior (Purple) players that we look for leadership and inspiration. Are you reading this Sissoko you Tw@t?

    Tuff,

    Some big numbers there.

    While they might not be reflected in what happens on the day, I think it gives a clear idea to those who don’t live here how angry this community is feeling.

    BandB – I think the Chronicle multi -poll is a great idea -at least it will give Toons fans worldwide an opportunity to express their views – well at least a summation of their views by taking part in the poll – if that makes sense.

    beer – the skip items would have had some genuine provenance associated with them coming directly from SJP -and as you say may have been auctioned off with the proceeds going to charity.
    The way the club creates gaffes like this to me demonstrates their true attitude towards our heritage in the North East and of the population. They really do not care at all.

    Sad to see those pictures in the skip but just shows how short sighted those at the club are, Could easily have made money for charity.

    Good to see The Vic in North Shield being the first bar to offer a free pint to anyone with a season ticket after kick off. Hope many others follow.

    Hibbit, you posh get in M&S, I sometimes see Steve Stone across the road in Asda 😉

    They could have gone to charity or to season ticket holders chosen randomly or to needy kids… but they throw them in the skip to both help us forget the good times and also to show us how little of a f@ck they actually give. I don’t think they care about bad pr lol.

    I hate everything this club publicly stands for today.

    Even the books, they must’ve devalued their assets (players mainly) to the tune of 30 or 40 million quid just to hide their mega profits as costs. They do what they want.

    BandB…Silly question, but you didn’t notice an odd £25m in loose change in that skip as well?

    Penfolds running round the city of Newcastle desperately trying to find it!

    Just completed the survey. Not that I’m one to criticise, might have been useful to have different questions for different types of fans. For instance, I wont be renewing a ST, but never had one to start with 🙂

    hibbit – it will be interesting how much coverage the Chronicle gives the protests -especially in view of what happened last time – the ban.
    I suppose if there is great support for the protest – as evidenced by the polls – they could legitimately argue a great public interest – thus report the protest without getting banned.

    Tuff,

    The Chronicle was always going to do a shabby deal with the club to get its access back. The deal will have been daily chats with Carver in return for sympathetic coverage. The city newspaper editor will feel he must have access to the club, otherwise his back page is a morgue.

    But they also have a tightrope to walk. If they appear too supine they attract ridicule and lose readers anyway.

    These polls might be designed to show the club that outside the palace walls things aren’t as peachy as they might seem when Mike plonks his arse down on a Saturday and surveys his full stadium.

    BandB I suspect there may be an element of truth in your last paragraph – the Chronicle can cite the results as opposed to any suggestion they are taking a particular stance.
    Journalism following public interest – hurrah!

    It seems that Aarons might have a chronic injury (reminds me of Boilesen)

    …his career never really took off because of it! Sad really 🙁
