It’s Two Goals In Two For Newcastle Loan Lad

Rolando Aarons did not make his fourth start for Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Trophy match this afternoon. However, he did come off the bench at the beginning of the second half against Fulham Under-21s.

It didn’t take the 23-year-old winger long to bag his second goal in as many games as he scored in the 50th minute to level the game at 1-1.

Wycombe went on to lose the match 1-2 on a late goal by Timmy Abraham, who is the younger brother of Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham. Unfortunately, there is no Tommy Abraham for Newcastle to bring in. 🙂

Rolando Aarons is starting to find his form for Wycombe after he suffered an injury in his debut for the club. He has since made appearances in Wycombe’s last seven matches in all competitions.

His manager Gareth Ainsworth had this to say after Aarons scored his first goal for Wycombe against Shrewsbury on Saturday:

“He is a great player and he will terrorize defenses in this league and he is definitely above this level.”

“That goal will give him confidence. The boys know that they have to keep their levels high if they want to stay in this team.”

Rolando is on loan at Wycombe until January 13th. His final match could be at Sunderland on the 11th. Wycombe are currently second in League One and have already beaten Sunderland in their home fixture earlier this month.

Here is an interview with Aarons after his goal on Saturday, as well as a video of the goal.

    it’s seems a bit far fetched for any person to believe that.

    Just a thought but as we’re going to be surrounded by politics for the next 5 weeks maybe we should all agree to keep it off the blog providing a safe haven from all that is Boris, Jezza and BRexit! :mrgreen:

    I’m not sure if a few different posters actually believe what they post.
    “We don’t sell players purely for profit” has to be one of the most misguided statements I’ve ever seen on here. It has actually been confirmed by Churnley himself as this is what they do. How can someone state otherwise and brave what they’re posting.

    Jail – for more years than I can remember but I did stop doing it for a few years. To give you an idea my first team had Owen Coyle as one of my strikers (he was cheap!) 😀
    Actually you’d think I’d be good at it by now but I’m still hopeless!

    I think Paully posted this list earlier

    Out of all them I think probably Carroll was purely for profit and we know the reasons for the rest. All clubs do this to a certain extent but the difference is they re-invest the money into more players whereas with us it seems to disappear into a black hole.

    I don’t think it does get easier. The reason I ask is that Ndombele’s value dropped inbetween Sunday morning and the end of the Everton Spurs game. I think that the value depends on the amount of people moving players in and out. Do you think thousands must have moved him out mid game on the strength of his very poor performance?

    I get Sissoko, Wijnaldum and Jaanmat were sold because of the Champo but the intention was always to sell. We didn’t sell Sissoko earlier because he was largely pants until those Euros. A perfect example is Santon, we were on the verge of buying Pieters, a fit dependable LB who is still playing in the PL now, we opted for an injured Santon because his sell on value was deemed more, that was not done for the good of the team but purely for profit that never even happened.

    I’ve lost interest in this year’s nufcblog fantasy league already. Haven’t checked since the first game or two. I guess I’m near the bottom now. I preferred it when you just made your team at the start then got a few changes in jan.

    Debating with you is like debating with a child.

    Yesterday was another prime example, you had your answer from several posters yet still claimed no one had answered you.

    Like Posada you can’t see the wood for the trees and are a opinionated fool.

    The real poison at Nufc is the apathy of a certain section of fans.

    Instead of cutting out the infection they’d rather wait until the body dies

    The point I made was that Jib, without qualification or even an attempt at justification, posted ‘[poster’s name], you’re an idiot’. That was tagged on to a post with no relevance to the target of Jib’s wisdom!

    Perhaps you could explain why he’s prone to provocation? Jib hasn’t been able to.

    Jail @49 – I don’t think his value suddenly changed it’s to do with sell-on fees such that you don’t make full profit if a player’s value increases – from the FF rules:-

    “Player prices change during the season dependent on the popularity of the player in the transfer market. Player prices do not change until the season starts.

    The price shown on your transfers page is a player’s selling price. This selling price may be less than the player’s current purchase price as a sell-on fee of 50% (rounded up to the nearest £0.1m) will be applied on any profits made on that player.”

    Ye olde pensioner Betty would have to do much better than that for me to respond. At least he is not as far gone as jimiley, who actually believes the shadow gov would tax footballers 90+%.

    Jimiley would make a great sarcastaball critic, in all truth and fairness.

    Buying players for cheap and selling them on for a profit is actually a pretty sound business and football model if you invest it back in properly in scouting , coaching etc! The problem we have is the money is paid in installments which we never ever seem to spend on the actual club it seems to disappear after the 2nd year…..

    This is how Dortmund , Ajax and Atletico Madrid operated for years and now they have grown so big that they can compete with the best in europe on their own terms now!

    If Ashley had actually run us properly in the 12 years with that similar mindset of those clubs we would probably be a regular in european competition every season as the potential is easily there!

    LCBP @60 – I think Nicky made a good point last night that Ashley ran us too close to the wind and we ended up being relegated twice which severely cocked up this strategy. If we hadn’t been relegated (a big IF I know) then we could now be in the position you state. Although probably not as we are talking Mike Ashley!

    Modric, Griezman, aubamayeng… Plenty of world stars of today that we were linked with and I wonder how much Ashley regrets it now.

    Yeah the only time that we have ever actually tried to kick on was the season we came 5th when we signed Cisse and tried to sign that centre half (can’t mind his name) and if we had have got him we probably would have came 3rd!

    We only ever seem to spend when we are in trouble in January now so if Bruce somehow was to get us 3 or 4 more wins between now and January it would be interesting to see if we really are willing to get players in!? The money is always there with us it just depends on Ashley

    Aye he probably only regrets not signing them as he would be gutted about the profit that would have been made on them

    First relegation fine. However, the second relegation we had just finished 5th a couple seasons before and we had a very strong team to build on.

    Problem is we sold Demba Ba and Cabaye and tried to replace them with free transfers or not try to replace them at all!

    Inexcusable! Of all the disgraceful things Ashley has implemented during his tenure at Newcastle, not taking advantage of our position in 2012 and looking at it so casually is and probably always will be my biggest ever gripe against him.

    Well yeah exactly. He’s tried to join the party now by signing Joelinton for 40 million but the likes of Aubamanyeng was available for less than half of that at the time.

    The man obviously understands the business side of retail but hasn’t got the slightest clue about the business of football.

    cockneymafiaout @65 – I agree and that’s my point he tried to scrimp too much – if he had brought in adequate replacements for Ba & Cabaye hopefully we wouldn’t have been relegated and could have pushed on.
