Rolando Aarons Tweets Simple Message Amid Speculation

3:06 pm, Sunday, September 6th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 49 Comments

There is news today that Newcastle may have wanted to unload Rolando Aarons in part exchange for Charlie Austin on deadline day last Tuesday and Newcastle fans have responded with lots of messages of support for the 19 year-old winger, who is one of Newcastle’s brightest youngsters.

Rolando Aarons in action in Sacramento

On his Twitter account he tweeted a very simply message amid the speculation:

Anybody looking at that would think Rolando was Newcastle through and through.

And following that,  a number of Newcastle fans have tweeted their support of him, and how he can become a very good player for the team.

Rolando has also given a good interview today in the Chronicle talking about new coach Steve Black.

Steve is toughening him up mentally, and he seems to have a great relationship with the new coach, and that will certainly help the 19 year-old become a better footballer in the future.

He calls Steve Black the happiest man in the world, and we saw some fo that in the latest addition of Magpies 24/7 (Episode 7).

Steve Black was welcoming all the players at the door for their team meeting with Arsenal and he was smiling away,  and patting everybody on the back as they went in.

It’s very important to be positive in all aspects of life, but at times that can also be very difficult.


We like the new spirit at the club, and we now hope that Newcastle can start winning some games, and that will help us all forget the disaster of last season.

Comments welcome.

Note: A number of Newcastle fans organized by Callum Taylor are raising funds for the Refugees forced to leave war-torn countries like Syria. They will have some banners at the West Ham game.

See if you can support them at their pledge page here – thanks.

    Sloooow news day eh? Fair play getting an article out of this like

  • 2 Bobbybee // Sep 6, 2015 at 3:14 PM

    Honest, I really am going. Just to say that story was just garbage and involved – apparently – an agent who had no real connection to either Austin, Aarons or Newcastle. A load of crap in other words. Some clown trying to make a name for himself – other than the name loser that is. 🙂 Worra plonka Roderney.

    See jeff easy to be a total idiot, practise makes perfect. All the things you mention are unlikely, but the scenario I mention happened before. Google precedent.

  • 5 Tsunki // Sep 6, 2015 at 3:52 PM

    Nope beer.

    Jeff, Mr Google spellchecker – what is that word, ‘ Yadder’?

    Is it like that French word, ‘wala!’ 🙂

  • 6 Tsunki // Sep 6, 2015 at 4:19 PM

    Thing is everyone knows jeff monitors this site 24/7 so it’s obvious he’s really slow of thought when Google don’t come up with the goods. Funny because I found ‘precedent’ straight away.

  • 7 Tsunki // Sep 6, 2015 at 4:33 PM

    Looks like everyone else is on the Charlie Austin Blog. Oh well if you can’t beat ‘ em…..

    Anyone else got an image in their head of Welshie being that guy off the go compare adverts or is it just me?

  • 12 welshgeordie9 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:08 PM


    That’s was very i give you that one.

    Ha ha ha

    Come on bale do it for welshie.

  • 15 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:10 PM

    Just joking! I’d have to compliment you on a cracking tache if you did look like that!

  • 16 welshgeordie9 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:10 PM

    So many quality players in the Wales squad.

    Jazz Richards
    Neil Taylor

    Just to name a few.

  • 17 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:11 PM

    I see Wijnaldum has been dropped from the Dutch starting line up, stupid mistake, they cant keep hold of the ball without him, already 1-0 down….

  • 18 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:13 PM

    Welsh, i’d give you the first two as being quality players but Jazz Richards? C’mon he’s more wife beater than world beater

  • 19 welshgeordie9 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:14 PM


    Is that match live, I’m watching the Wales match.

  • 20 beermonkey // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:16 PM


    is anita playing

  • 21 welshgeordie9 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:16 PM

    I forgot the captain Ashley Williams and joe Allen, jazz Richard has played well when swans play him.

  • 22 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:20 PM

    Its on Skysports, red button same channel as wales

    No toon players playing, Anita, Krul & Wijnaldum on the bench.

    Schneider is playing in Gini’s position, he’s well past it. They are bloody awful in defence, De Vrij looks about as quick as Colo, been beaten a few times by simple balls over the top.

  • 23 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:22 PM

    Welshie, he’s never been a regular for Swans, hows he get in the Wales team?
    Cant even think who Swansea normally have at RB so he cant be that good!

  • 24 jasper // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:22 PM

    Aaron’s had a poor game against Northampton. Their FB had him in his pocket, repeated catching Aarons sitting back on his heels and stepping in to take the ball. Perez would have moved to the ball and if the FB had stayed tight he would have spun past him. But Aarons just got his pocket picked, embarrassingly easily.
    Aarons can look good with the ball at his feet facing forwards but that isn’t all the game is about. He has yet to prove to me that he is a team player and has a lot to learn.

  • 25 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:24 PM

    I’m never bothered about watching England to be honest. If the England manager cant be arsed to ever come up to Newcastle then dont see why they should get my support. Think last England manager to visit was Sven! Cappelo certainly couldn’t be bothered any pretty sure Woy has never been up.

  • 26 Ron Knee // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:27 PM

    Disaster for Netherlands

  • 27 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:28 PM

    That was Aarons first bad performance, it was still better than 99% of Obertans performances

    Holland 2-0 down, awful goalkeeping by Cillenson

  • 28 welshgeordie9 // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:28 PM


    I did say Richards is not a regular he’s got competition with angel Rangel and Kyle naughton.

  • 29 Ian Toon // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:31 PM

    Bobbybee- You made a number of valid points on the question of the club not favouring spending in the January window-.unless faced with little option. I recently read a piece on that very subject, the guts of which I paraphrase below hopefully in a concise form for you to challenge the ludicrous claim that if we don’t spend £ 50 million in each of the next two windows we’ve somehow broken promises.
    Since the introduction of the transfer window system in 2002, gross transfer spending has exceeded £7.3bn, with over 80% of this being spent in summer transfer windows, ( source Deloitte).
    The four Premier League clubs competing in this season’s Champions League – ManC/United, Chelsea and Arsenal – had a combined gross transfer spend of around £340m, representing around 40% of the aggregate gross transfer spend by Premier League clubs.
    Total transfer fees paid to overseas clubs were £585m, about 10% higher than in the summer of 2014 and 67% of the aggregate gross transfer spend by Premier League clubs.
    Football is big business and it will be of paramount importance to Ashley that from next season, the Premier League TV rights deal increases from £3.018bn to £5.136bn for three seasons. The bottom club will pocket £99m per season with the champions earning more than £150m in prize money, even before extra money is paid for featuring in a TV match.
    All 20 of the Premier League clubs are now ranked in the top 40 globally by revenue. Premier League clubs’ gross spending on players from overseas clubs this summer totalled more than half a billion pounds.
    Premier League clubs’ gross and net spending this summer is more than double that of any other European league. The driving force behind this is the growth and distribution mechanism of the league’s broadcast rights.
    Deloitte – Earlier this year reported the rebalancing of revenues and costs, such that Premier League clubs collectively generated pre-tax profitability for the first time since 1999, with clubs set to enjoy a further revenue boost when the next broadcast deals start in 2016. At that time Premier League clubs have a chance to invest in playing talent whilst remaining profitable in a way that was previously not the case.

  • 30 Jail for Ashley // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:41 PM

    I would very much like us to spend 150M over the next three windows but you have used it as FACT in your recent posts when it was only mentioned, as Belfast pointed out as a tongue in cheek remark, the same as Ian Holloway saying whether he’d like to sign Messi and Ronaldo, absolutely he said.

  • 31 lesh // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:43 PM


    The Chronicle’s take on the Aarons story’s probably nearer the mark- summarised by me as follows:

    NUFC offer £10m for you know who;

    Qpr say no, but throw in Aarons as well and there’s a deal;

    NUFC tell Qpr to sod off.

  • 32 beermonkey // Sep 6, 2015 at 5:56 PM


    the club doesn’t have to spend 50 mill a window for the club to keep moving in the right direction

    as long as the right players join and there are a quality to move the club on I don’t care if they cost a 5er

  • 33 Ron Knee // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    Gini on.

  • 34 Jail for Ashley // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:12 PM

    Certainly not, we could spend 10M on a CB, 4M on RB cover and 7M on a quality LB and everyone (almost everyone) would be over the moon, the reason it was mentioned is that Bobbybee has been stating as FACT that £150M is to be spent over theee windows.

  • 35 Big Pappa Cissé // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:13 PM

    Feel sorry for the Netherlands as they are usually my second team for international tournaments, even more so now after our recent signings .

    They have some really talented players, but for me they are a few years away from maturing . They should be fine for the next world cup at least .

  • 36 Graeme // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:14 PM

    Lesh @ 31 – you mean our “Media Partner” got the whole thing arse about face?? How could such errors occur?? I’m shocked and stunned!!!

  • 37 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:14 PM

    The club doesnt and wont have a £100m cash surplus during the upcoming season, so they wont be spending £50m a window. Think all anyone sensible wants is a continual progression. They will never keep everyone happy, kets will still have his lists of the seven people we still need to buy but people just want to see a sustained strategy of investing in the team, it wont always be tens of millions but we cant go without buying anyone at all, just leaves people feeling disenchanted

  • 38 SUTTY1978 // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    BPC, you make the dutch sound like the Toon squad!

  • 39 sing in the corner // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:22 PM

    Not unlike a Dutch national side to make a complete horlicks of everything…and looks like thats what they’re making of this qualifying campaign. Shame Mirto hasn’t got a Dutch granny..they could hoy him on up front and give him free licence to KILL

  • 40 Ron Knee // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:35 PM

    Enter LDJ.

  • 41 Ron Knee // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:43 PM

    Netherlands doomed.

  • 42 beermonkey // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:54 PM


    I know it was bobby and I know where he got it from I have not seen it but I cant believe any manager would tell the world how much he has to spend in the next few windows
    I also agree with sutty the club wont have that amount in cash, and we know we have to stand on our own

    I think if those players u mentioned are added to the squad and then replacements bought in before players leave that will be not a bad window

  • 43 Jib // Sep 6, 2015 at 6:59 PM

    You know the way you had to grovel over the Fergy / Pardew thing

    It may occur twice

    McClaren has mentioned 150 million available twice on NUFC tv

    However bcos you are such a skinny twot you know nowt

    Hope this helps JIB

  • 44 Jib // Sep 6, 2015 at 7:00 PM

    Keep cleaning the lavvies

  • 45 Ian Toon // Sep 6, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    Jib- He simply doesn’t have an eye for detail. I have missed the Fergy: Pardew dispute but I thought it was common knowledge.
    I welcome your research from whatever source. You can’t be too well informed on Nufc TV or anywhere else. One fans trivia is another fans nugget of priceless information. Keep it coming.

  • 46 Jib // Sep 6, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    Whoop whoop

    We’ll have the child/adult Mr Tuff back soon

    Apparently there are no flights direct from Toulose to Newcastle !!!!

    Ha ha ha

    What he means

    He’s too skinny to pay Brit Airways prices
    Ha ha ha

  • 47 Mister Tuff // Sep 6, 2015 at 7:24 PM

    Well back home now. Met another Toon fan a Schipol Airport just before I left. This bloke is a Toon fan and is from the Ugandan Batwa tribe – which is a pygmy tribe. He wanted to know what Maccas bwave new world was. again I had to tell him I didn’t know.
    He also said he’s met a Toon fan called Jib who had a strange way of introducing himself.

  • 48 welshgeordie9 // Sep 6, 2015 at 7:25 PM


    I bet you he’s like victor meldrew on the plane.

  • 49 lesh // Sep 7, 2015 at 12:29 AM


    Your reference to child/adult Mr Tuff suggests you’re au fait with Eric Berne’s methods?
