Heartfelt Words From Rolando Aarons

We feel so sorry for Rolando Aarons, because since making the first team in pre-season two years ago and playing so brilliantly – he has subsequently picked up so many injuries.

And only yesterday it was reported that he had sustained a serious ACL knee injury in training and that he could be out of the game for up to a year, depending on how serious the injury is.

Rafa Benitez with Rolando in pre-season

There were lots of messages of support from fans sent yesterday to his Twitter account and a few hours ago he released an emotional message about his latest injury.

We wish Rolando all the best in what are really testing times for the youngster, who turned 21 yesterday.

Get fit soon Rolando.

    Very talented player. More than talented enough to play for England I think. But of course you need to be on the pitch regularly and to find a level of consistency in all aspects of your game, which of course requires significant further physical and mental attributes that we haven’t yet seen from him.

    Maybe just cut our losses not our lasses, even though they may deserve it, it’s not right

    two threads ago, thanks for the advice, I did that but still got problems.

    What I have done and hopefully sorted it out was use a new connector thing from the phone line. Can’t remember its name, but it seems to be stable at the moment.

    From the previous thread, CH said we should expect losses, is that wistful thinking by him. 🙂

    Spot on Jimmy, I may not pipe up much on this blog, I prefer reading, especially your input, but Aaron’s has shown glimpses of pure quality and it’s devastating that this has happened again To the lad, hopefully this will be his last and he can show Sterling how it’s done ! I’ve certainly seen more technical awareness from Aaron’s than Sterling and that’s from very few games.

    There he goes again…for Rafa as a manager if Aarons aren’t weighing too much on the wages and properly he will keep him.

    If after this injury he keeps on having such injury without having game time there no point in keep him on a strategic view. Rafa knows Best.

    Perez won the goal of the month competition for his volley against Ipswich.

    I counted 22 passes (difficult because sky sports sped it up) from kickoff and Ipswich never touched the ball once. Is that some sort of record?

    It feels like cheating when you vote for Newcastle players on the ssn website because it’s always that overwhelmingly one sided haha.

    On thread, boy you’ve been unlucky rolando lad.

    I still think he’s got a lot to offer if he can stay fit. Just a shame we won’t be able to see it for a while.

    Ah the myth of Kieron Dyer !

    He played 250 games for NUFC over 7 seasons which averages out over 30 games a season – not bad .

    His injury issues occurred after he left us at West Ham and QPR.

    In total contrast to Aarons he had no early career injuries worth talking about – but those he had were probably badly dealt with resulting in later issues .

    If Aarons can resolve his fitness issues at a relatively young age with such a good medical team helping him he will turn into a star – no doubt about it.
