Carver GIves An Update On Rolando Aarons

There was an “exclusive” report a couple of days ago in the Shields Gazette that Rolando has another relapse in his attempt to come back this season from his hamstring injuries, and that meant he was out for the season.

John Carver was interviewed yesterday and he clarified the situation on Rolando by responding to a question that he was possibly being held back because of his contract situation:

“It’s got nothing to do with that. He has had this ongoing issue with his hamstring.” “We thought we had him up to a certain level.”

“He worked extremely hard earlier last week, then there was reaction to it – which you get with an injury like that.”

“We scanned him and there was nothing on the scan which shows it could be something connected in his hip or his back.” “So we will send him to another specialist to eliminate that situation.”

“But the reports about him being out for the rest of the season, I don’t know where that’s come from – I;d like to think he can come back before the end of the season.”

Not sure what his contract situation has to do with keeping him from playing, but it does look like Rolando has had some negative reaction in training.

So the 19 year-old is not officially out for the rest of the season, but with the lad being out almost six months now,  and only six weeks left in the season – he may not play again.

Comments welcome.

    It isn’t relevant. The reserves and youth team were awful under SBR. Should we blame him? Keegan got shot of the reserves to the detriment of the club, was he hung out to dry because of it?

    It is an utterly nonsensical article that has zero real basis. They were relegated under Pardew. Carver’s development squad lost a large number of players in January on loan. That has lead to more Under 18’s playing at reserve level, not to mention players from the reserves also having to cover first team duties.

    It is an attempt to beat Carver with a stick when there is no need. The problems are all at the top of the tree, and that article loses focus on that, and tries to create blame where there is little.

    Anyway, I’m off out now. Catch you later.

    Just reading that last article again.

    Ed I’m getting really fed up with your derogatory comments like the ” sack pardew crew” and similar attacks now on the ”Ashley out” group.

    We were in yet another shocking run, everton game apart, when Pardew left.

    Fickle or what Ed. It takes some really poor management which you yourself were very criticial of to get a sack campaign set up against you like AP had.

    Ok he’s doing well at palace but he always does start well but look at all his dismal stats overall, finishing 16th, relegating charlton and almost West Ham.

    It’s horses for courses and AP’s truly dismal football was never going to get the fans off their seats here, despite all his spin.

    You can always look wise in hindsight, but our problems have been magnified by having Pardew mk 2 running the asylum.

    Pretty sure Palace don’t have any 12M players or even 6M ones like Riviere, Anita, De Jong etc. As I say horses for courses and AP and JC fell off here.

    RH time to boycott the blog then.
    I find it weird that Ed provides a platform for everyone to express a view but it seems the same courtesy cannot be extended to Ed sharing his views.

    Our physios or the equipment our physios use are shite and surely outdated.

    Injuries have crippled this team for far too long. For at least 20 years we’ve been topping the injury table.

    Enough is enough. If the club has no intention of buying players the least it could do is sort this major problem out before we have another onjury crisis.

    Right so newcastle for 3 seasons in a row have had the worst injury problems and they’ve always been recurring injuries anyone think their physios and med staff need replacing.
    Might be cheaper/more profitable for the fat one than a new manager and players.
    I mean come on it’s a lot easier to sell players whose legs aren’t falling off!

    Try changing his boots.
    Has to be a correlation between super light blades style boots and this type of injury ?
    Or northern grass is too tough compared to southern softy grass.

    Aarons should NOT be considered for any games this season – take the pressure of expecting to play off the lad and send him to a sports spa/clinic in the Alps for his well being.
    Then let him start agin next season recovered, fit and raring to go.

    He ain’t coming back until Cisse and some oif the other first line crocks are healthy or off suspension. He might not look like such a hot shot to prospective buyers if he had to carry the team, which-of course- he can’t.
