3 years ago

Sheffield Wednesday fans were impressed by Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons when they starred midweek inn a 2-0 reserve team derby win over Sheffield United.

Aarons scoring and Lazaar hitting the post with a 30 yarder.

On Saturday they finally got their first starts in the Championship, Steve Bruce putting out a new look left hand side.

The Sheffield Wednesday fans couldn’t have been more impressed, especially wit Achraf Lazaar

The left-back still never having made a league start at Newcastle since Rafa Benitez bought him almost three years ago.

The Owls destroyed Swansea in the first half, racing into a 3-0 lead, eventually winning 3-1.

Great news for all concerned if this beginning leads to permanent moves down the line.

Sheffield Wednesday fans commenting via their top Owls Talk message board and Twitter:

‘How good was Lazaar today? Him and Aarons down the left are going to terrorise every team we come up against!!’

‘Great to see some confident pace and skill Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons soon to rival legends Kingy & Worthington down the left.’

‘Great debut. Was so refreshing to see some pace down the left hand side with Lazaar and Rolando Aarons together. Can’t see Boyd getting back in anytime soon ahead of Aarons. Harsh on Fox as he’s been better last few months but Lazaar was brilliant today.’

‘Just wow!’

‘Need to come to some agreement now to sign the pair when the window opens.’

‘Amazing Achraf, we’ve needed someone like you! Can’t wait to see more!!’

‘Man of match for me, outstanding.’

Lazar looks quality.’

‘Lazaar is a major upgrade.’

‘The whole left side (Aarons and Lazaar) looks unrecognisable.’

‘Aarons has also played really well so far.
We look like we are playing with some width for once.’

‘Like the look of Lazaar. Based on the first half performance he may get an extended run in the side.’

‘May get an extended run? Will get an extended run surely. Absolutely brilliant today.’

‘Lazaar was superb.’

‘Brilliant debut from Lazaar, very positionally aware, can also deliver crosses with pace.
Big credit too for Aarans, worked his socks off supporting Lazaar.’

‘A lot of people on here not expecting much of Lazaar when we signed him.
He’s played in Serie A regularly and for Morocco and was signed by Newcastle for 6 mil.
So clearly has ability and showed that right away today. Excellent going forward and in defence which I wasn’t sure about.’

‘Sat with a Newcastle fan today on the kop who thought Lazaar and Aarons would do very well for us.
He thinks Aarons should have been more involved at Newcastle and thinks he must have had a fall out with Benitez for him to be frozen out.’

‘Lazaar is a quality player, you can just tell.’

‘Pace, early cross = goal.’

‘Having a left back with pace and a willingness to attack and put balls in the box is so refreshing.
Hope Lazaar available in the summer even a season long loan would be good.’

‘Laazar was my MOM
Arrons looks good too. How have we neglected wingers for so long?’

‘Very impressed with Lazaar and Aarons.’
