Newcastle To Sign Up And Retain Their Top Youngsters


Newcastle fans will have been heartened last night – not by the overall display of Newcastle or our patched up defense, but the sparkling form of winger Rolando Aarons.

The youngster scored a great goal with an overhead bicycle kick in the second half, and then followed that up with a second goal within the minute, when he quickly controlled a loose ball outside the penalty area, and then hit it into the roof of the net to bring Newcastle back to 4-3 with about 14 minutes to play against Portland Timbers.

Rolando Aarons – to sign new deal at Newcastle?

There were some big clubs interested in the 19 year-old last season, but the youngster had a lot of problems with hamstring injuries and only played a handful of games for us during the season, but he looks as good as he was last season in pre-season at this time – brilliant!

Rolando has only one year left on his contract, so most fans would have thought we need to sign this lad up to a long term contract – after watching his brilliance last night.

But not just to protect our interests financially in case the likes of Liverpool or Arsenal come a calling.

We need to keep him at Newcastle, as Steve McClaren and the Board try to build a Newcastle team that can actually win something and  finish in the top eight of the Premier League.

We also need to do that with our other top youngsters like Adam Armstrong and Freddie Woodman as two good examples.

There’s good news today that Aarons has been offered a long term contract by Newcastle, and its expected to be five years and of course he will get a  wage increase from what he’s earning now – and hopefully it will be a real attempt by Newcastle to keep the lad on Tyneside.

Rolando has been at Newcastle for three years now, and he has made excellent progress since he was surprisingly released by Bristol City.

With Steve McClaren renowned for bringing young players through a club – we can look forward – hopefully – to seeing Rolando be a star man for Newcastle in this coming season, which he promised to be last season before all those injuries he picked up.

That’s another reason why Newcastle must get a handle on what’s causing the club to finish top of the Injury League every season.

It will be good news indeed if Rolando signs his new long term deal – very soon.

Just in case – by an off-chance – you haven’t seen those two goals by Rolando – here they are – and the commentators are impressed.

    Well there is a better chance he will sign it now rather than when Pardew or Carver were at the helm

    I think it’s best to give him a decent contract. The likes of Liverpool and Co will no doubt be in his agents ear offering x y and z.

    Bambams,

    I don’t know mate.The whole Pardew issue confuses me. He was able to convince Cabaye to join Palace. Him alone. Any top 6 club in the top European Leagues would have wanted Cabaye.

    Pardew has some pulling power. Damn.

    As for Carver, I would think not even Ali Dia being offered 250k per week would have signed under him.

    Finally a link between us and Shaquiri, very welcome. Now make it happen Charnley.

    Just a rumour, but one can dream. Would provide service for Mitrovic.

    I dont think Cabaye needed much convincing by Pardew as it looks like he has gone so he can live in London, earn more at palace than anyone else was prepared to pay him & his only desire appears to be making sure he is in the french team for the euro’s.

    I would be happy to offer twenty or thirty thousand a week. Our biggest prospect by country mile. When he plays well, he gets the whole team going. Influences the team more than de jong

    If we managed to get Shaquiri in I would start to become very excited. I know our main goal now is to sign CBs but what a player! Rocket of a shot, rapid, strong, has desire to win, fuel to burn. Him and arrons either side of siem de Jong, behind Mirtovic …

    We still have the cabbages though. The vegetables at the back. And Schteve played Ferguson as a central defender in Portland? Ahahahahahaha. Brilliant tactics Schteve. If you don’t want to play on artificial surfaces don’t come to the US on tour with the club. Ridiculous behavior from the club once again.

    Take them on the pitch and fong them. Go to the States and then pretend you didn’t know what surfaces you would have to play on? What a load of bollocks. Put a farcical group out to play in front of supporters who came to support the club? Shameful as usual.

    You are wrong.
    Miles out of touch.
    Ridiculous behaviour by Portland ,insulting us by playing their U23’s against a Premiership side.
    So although Steve gave the artificial surface excuse , those in the know , and Portland , are aware the insult was thrown back in their faces and we still nearly managed a draw.

    Would pardew has played his main players on that pitch last night??

    I seem to recall him putting Hba on a pitch that injuried him for a full season.

    Some of the garbage on here is ridiculous

    Cabaye would not be earning more at CP than other clubs, they don’t have that kind of cash

    Cabaye wanted to play, he no doubt trusts Pardew and was probably given assurances that he would play

    I know fans don’t like Pardew, but it seems the players always did. You don’t hear anything bad from players who left the club or the current squad

    The only exception was Ben Arfa & who cares what he has to say about anything

    exactly! thats why im begining to love schteve! First he came out and said the us tour was a bad idea. Then he put his money where his mouth is and sat the injury prone players. He realized that beating a 3rd tier team means nothing. IN addition, hes only help the campaign to bring in more defenders by have the team leak goals like a sieve

    Aye thought it was booty chatter

    Taco – Shakiri joined bayern from basle, he left munich because he wanted 1st team football, he was always behind robben and ribery. At inter they have to many players which is why him and Santon are being flogged.

    If you watch NUFCtv since SM has arrived , the players are very diplomatic when interviewed but it is clear they think McClaren is light years ahead with his training methods.

    listen, i never met the guy, but i had a similar conversation with guys that followed italy and germany much more than i do and they said thats the deal with him. Plus when he did that rip off the kyle irving commercial there were a ton of posts on how the kids were the only ones that like him because all his teamates dont.
