Rolando Aarons has been very unlucky at Newcastle with injuries, and he has failed to show through to be a regular first-team player over the last few years.
There was so much promise for Aarons just a few years back, but that promise has not been fulfilled due to a combination of injuries plus a lack of form when he did get his chances.
But Rolando is on loan for the rest of the season at Sheffield Wednesday, and he will get a chance under their new Geordie manager Steve Bruce.
Bruce has also taken left-back Achraf Lazaar on loan to Hillsborough.
Aarons says this loan move is a vital loan move for him as he had this to say in the Sheffield Star .
“It’s a very important loan. I look at every game the same,”
“I want to do my best. I want to make assists, take players on and score goals.
“I look at every game as important and being here at Sheffield Wednesday is an opportunity to show everyone in England what I can do.”
“I have been ready (to start) since I signed. When the gaffer decides to put me in, I will be ready to show what I can do.”
“I’m definitely not a striker,” “I played up front in the Czech Republic.”
“It was different playing with my back to goal. I learned how to use my body differently and play in different areas in the pitch.”
“I feel I’m stronger on the wings.”
Aarons has made three sub appearances so far but is yet to make a start for the Owls.
Wednesday drew 2-2 at Rotherham United on Saturday in one of the craziest finishes ever in a Championship.
2-0 down after 87 minutes Owls’ defender Jordan Thorniley went down with a head injury, and it was a long stoppage.
The referee added 8 minutes on for stoppage time after 90 minutes.
After 10 minutes of stoppage time, Iorfa scored and then a minute later Forestieri scored the equalizer with the last kick of the game.
And would you believe it but Forestieri picked up a second yellow card for his celebration with the crowd and was sent off.
You really cannot make this stuff up – and what does at least 8 of injury time really mean in the rules?
That they can play 10 minutes – or even more?
The length of stoppage time needs to be tightened up in the rules – somehow.
And yes with that luck, Rotherham are fighting against relegation – you guessed it.
