Fans Offer Encouragement To Aarons After Devastating Injury


The terrible news has just been issued by Newcastle that Rolando Aarons has picked up another injury – but this time the worst one of his career – a serious ACL knee injury.

It was picked up in training this week and the 21 year-old – he turned 21 today – he has not yet had the surgery to repair the knee.

All Rolando needs now is encouragement to help him through this terrible injury, so it you can offer the lad some encouragement his Twitter account is @rolandoaarons.

    next time you go away for a weekend could you make it a long one, like thursday to Tuesday.

    you could go to the states perhaps. Apparently racist, sexist, homophobic, narcissitic p—ks and general d–kheads are all the rage there at the minute.

    Really tough on the kid, but he is only 21 so he has time still to get a career from Football.

    Is he getting all of the Toon injuries as in some kind of injury magnet. That is an awful thought.

    Such a shame that a promising career has been blighted. He’s never enough of a run to really prove himself, just glimpses of his talent

    You have to feel for the lad – recovers from one injury just to get a worse one.

    We might as well sell this player. He’s getting worse than Kieron Dyer for getting injured.

    Not great news for Rolando but I doubt he’s overly p1ssed off he’ll still earn more than anyone on here whilst sat playing fifa.

    What we are seeing here is a very public tragedy being played out right before our eyes.
    The lad has never lacked for self-belief, even cockiness.
    And no-one can doubt his effort. First in and let last out every day.
    His dwindling band of fans still claim to see flashes of the old brilliance.
    But its always followed by another disappointing relapse and the sense that things will never really get any better…. that all that potential will inevitably come to nothing.
    It can only be a matter of time before those in charge decide to pull the curtain down and ask him to do something more worthwhile with his time.
    It is desperately sad to watch.

    It’s a shame about Aarons too.

    The club is well insured.

    The lad is well remunerated.

    Both facts miss the point.

    He loves playing footy and when he was fit he looked the biz.

    Tony Green in the short time he was fit brought so much pleasure to SJP.

    The fans are the losers here.

    Does anyone know if Aaron’s injury happened whilst at livello? I heard he did it whilst throwing bottles of champagne.

    In all seriousness I feel for the kid but the only time he’s is fit is preseason!! Give him next year to see what he’s like and get rid. Hopefully he can have a career elsewhere

    To do a survey you need to ask the public questions, can’t see anyone going up to a Welsh person and asking them questions to their face

    Has Lee had liposuction? Has he been training with the first team?

    I was amazed when I finally heard him speak for the first time that he wasn’t a gurgling, wheezing, lisping simp, so bad had things been. But in fact, quite the opposite.

    Now he’s cutting a trim and dashing figure in bespoke suits.

    Rafa’s going to be the making of him.

    Did Steven Gerrard not have similar injury woes when he was coming through, I believe he did as did Gareth Bale if I can remember correctly, this lad has tremendous potential and due to what he could be we should never wish for the lad to move on, how would we feel if he did move on and then got over his injury problems and developed into the best left winger that England have had in a generation, and he does have that ability, yes his injury record is appalling and it does frustrate us all, but such talent should never be thrown away as it could come back to bite you on the bum, we must keep faith with him, his potential may never be reached, but if it is reached then it has got to be with us, and what is the risk, his wages, I doubt that he is a top earner, but what could he be worth if he reaches his potential, it would be crazy imho to get rid of such a talent.

    This isn’t normal pull, tear, strain type injury. But most of his have been, and that was a large part of why Bristol City released him. That and his attitude at the time. Not a medic, but the physics and doctors at Bristol City deemed the injury risk greater than the potential benefits when he played.

    He hasn’t really done anything yet, flashes, but also some distinctly average showings as well.

    Terrible injury to get, and my sympathies are with him. He isn’t really a miss though because he has never really been part of it.Ideally he would be fit and out on loan somewhere. He is going to struggle for time once Rafa upgrades in Jan and the summer.

    Are you sure about that as I understood the reason why he left Bristol City was that they had a few similar type of kids on their books and somehow he just slipped through their net, from my knowledge which could be wrong as I’m not sure myself his injury record for Bristol City and for us when he was with the development squad was quite good, as far as I am aware his injury woes only started when he got into our first team squad, if you can remember the summer of 2014 he didn’t take a holiday and trained all summer to build himself up to give himself a chance in the first team, that was when he started to get injured, but as I say I could have got this totally wrong ?

    Spoof,
    Yeah, very sure on it. There were big concerns over his bodies ability to deal with the rigours of pro football and over his attitude. The attitude seems to have settled, the injuries have continued. He didn’t slip the net, he was part of their academy structure and released. Then we picked him up.

    The kid clearly has ability, which is why we went in for him I assume. We were probably the worst club he could have joined given his fitness issues and our propensity to have lots of injuries.

    That has surprised me, I knew about possible problems about his attitude which in fairness as you say does seem to have settled, but I was totally unaware of a poor injury record before the summer of 2014, just goes to show how little I know.

    Even so, with so much money that is in football I would still take the gamble, if it pays off we have possibly a great winger, a winger with pace who can cross the ball is a rarity, look at Lennon and Wright-Phillips and so many like them, great pace but a terrible delivery, Aarons with a bit of work and good luck could have what they didn’t, an end product, and over the next three years what would he cost, not a great deal in today’s money, but then I do have rose tinted glasses on which make me see Aarons as being a great prospect, but I could be wrong there as well.

    Spoof,
    He has ability, hasn’t shown any more than flashes so far though. He needs game time to progress and he won’t get that whilst injured, and I can’t see us not bringing in better if we go up. He should have been on loan this season, the injury just delays that, and sets him back.

    I’m not saying he won’t get there, but he has a lot to do and a lot to prove.

    I totally agree, he does have a lot to do and have a lot to prove, I just hope that we and the club don’t give up, players can have poor starts to their career and then thrive and prove their worth.

    I can see where your coming from as far as sending him out on loan, it can and it does help players greatly, but the biggest shame for me is his latest injury as I did forsee Rafa giving him a chance this season, in reality we only have two fit natural wingers, Ritchie and Atsu, now I do know that most wingers can swap wings but most wingers do have their preferred side and both Ritchie and Atsu are better on the right, on the left we only have Aarons which is why Gouffran is there, if Gouff gets a knock then we have got to hope that Lazaar is capable of stepping up to the plate, but with all of R
