Newcastle’s best player last night was undoubtedly Rolando Aarons who looked like the player he’s threatened to be for some years, but he has been halted by some serious injuries.
Most Newcastle fans would be delighted if Rolando can stay fit and have a great season for us.
He’s always had the talent, and he’s so keen to do well at Newcastle, so we really hope he can stay fit and help Newcastle survive in the Premier League this season.
If we cannot sign say four good players in the next week, then this season has to be one of consolidation and there’s no way we can be relegated again after being down below last season.
In fact being relegated is one of the factors why we cannot even compete financially with mid-table clubs like Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, and Swansea in the transfer window this summer.
Rolando Aarons – excellent game last night
Aarons scored a brilliant goal last night and got 61% of the vote followed by our other goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic at 17%.
Next in line is Henri Saivet at 6% who again had a decent game last night for the Newcastle first team and worked his socks off for the cause.
Aarons came off injured in the second half, but Rafa said it was only cramp, and he should be OK for Saturday.
And while he may not start on Saturday against West Ham it’s a decent bet he’ll get a good run-out in the second half.
The game on Saturday is one we need to win before the long two-week International break which will be so gloomy if we lose for the fourth time running.
