Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to show their dismay at the performance of Rolando Aarons following the Magpies 1-0 defeat against Manchester City on Wednesday night.
Aarons was given his first Premier League start of the campaign against Pep Guardiola’s men, however the youngster failed to impress, so much so that the Newcastle fans took to Twitter after the game to display their disappointment at the 21-year old's performance.
I noticed that tonight. Was shocked at how slow he was. One chance down the right late on where he was clean through and defender ran across the pitch and beat him to the ball. Shame for the lad as he showed so much promise.— Andrew Carruthers (@Andy_Carruthers) December 27, 2017
Sad to say because I've always hoped he would come good but have to say that could have been Aarons last chance to impress for #nufc tonight and I think the only way he could have grasped it less would have been by not turning up. Him and Murphy look out of their depth massively.— Toon Stew (@toonarmyblog) December 27, 2017
Aarons has had a torrid time at Newcastle since joining back in 2012. Injuries have meant that the Englishman has only featured 18 times for the Magpies.
Much was expected of the youngster when he first broke onto the scene, however taking on board the comments from the fans, it seems that Aarons is no longer regarded as the next big thing, but more so as a flop.
The next few games for Newcastle will decide what will happen to Aarons in the future. If he is given another chance than he will hopefully become a star, however if the Jamaican born attacker is left on the bench, then he could well be on the move in the upcoming transfer window.
As for Newcastle, they have now won just one of their last 10 Premier League matches, and sit just one point above the drop zone. Up next is a home game against Brighton. This game is very much so a must win for Rafa Benitez's side, as they look to escape the relegation zone.
