Some Big Clubs Move In For Newcastle Target

Marseilles want around £11M for their wantaway striker 25 year-old Loic Remy, and he will move in January, but Newcastle are only one of the clubs interested in signing the striker,  and there are some big clubs also interested in the 17 times capped French International, and they can offer him European football next season too.

Loic Remy – some big clubs after him

Unless Newcastle win the FA Cup or the Europa League there seems little chance we will have European football next season, unless we can have a fantastic second half of the season, to make it up for only 20 points from our first 19 games, which is 2 points short of what we had in our relegation season, and 10 points short of  what we had last season at this time.

Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Schalke 04 are all said to be interested in signing the French striker, and all except West Ham should be able to offer the striker European football next season, which he would prefer.

One advantage Newcastle may have is that he is good friends with Yohan Cabaye, and Yohan has painted a great picture of what it’s like to live in Newcastle and play in front of 50,000 crowds at St. James’ Park every home game, and of course Newcastle also have a big contingent of French players in their ranks.

Chelsea may be the club to watch here, because they have finally agreed to Daniel Sturridge  join Liverpool next month, so they are in need of another top striker.

Some bad news yesterday for Newcastle was that Remy wants to consider all his options next month, and will not sign for any club early in the transfer window, and the Magpies were hoping to get their targets through the door early next month, but that may not be possible.

It seems that Newcastle are looking to bring in two defenders and a striker, and we have to hope some players come through the door before February, otherwise we will continue to struggle when our top players are injured or suspended.

Juts like we have this season – so far.

    Your list of goal scorers doesn’t include Perch.

    I don’t know who was more surprised, the team, the supporters or Perch himself. He must have had a rush of blood being that so far forward. Good goal though.

    If he wants to wait sandbag this one. Move on to the next target.

    Rumours in the summer said we were doing a lot of scouting in South America, Diego Rolon from Defensor Sporting would be an interesting signing up front, but maybe one to wait for the summer, as we need someone who can settle in straight away.

    Unrelated Post I just had to get off my chest after the Fergurson rant;

    I have been saying for years that I think Man United games are fixed or refs help them out. The amount of dodgy decisions in favour of Man United is ridiculous and needs to be seriously looked into. Ferguson and his profile intimidate referees and usually bow down to Ferguson’s pleas. It’s disgusting to watch and it’s no surprise they always do well in the league even when they are playing badly. Obviously that’s also down to a great team and Ferguson’s tactical experience. But still it beggars belief sometimes how they can get away with it in so many games. This article has hit the nail on this and especially on the part of the referee committee. I bet Man Untied being so popular and one of the best teams in UK that more than just some referees would deep down be a Man U fan. Also for crucial games for Man U it always seems to be the usual suspects to ref the game. One dodgy incident that I can’t shake off from my head is the Man U v Newcastle game last season where Ferdinand ‘clearly’ swiped Demba Ba’s standing leg in the box and sent him to the ground with the goal begging. That was clearly a red card and a penalty, Newcastle got neither. The ref was just a few yards away with a clear view. Shocking to say the least. Sky Sports also favours the Red Devils as they are the darlings of English Football, Sky and the FA always defend their actions as best they can and it makes me sick. How many times have amazing breaking news come through only to hear that Man U has drawn 0-0 with Bolton first, before mentioning for example Newcastle coming back to draw 4-4 with Arsenal as one example. It really makes me sick. It’s little wonder that goal-line technology has only recently being implemented as there has been match fixing going on for years. Why else wouldn’t they want to make the most popular sports in the world fair? There are so many things I can go on forever.

    Wednesday a decision went against Man U and it was about the own-goal. For once a critical decision went against Man U and Fergurson and he’s having a fit and insulting our club and Pardew- what a clown, F Off Fergie!

    On to related news-
    I was very proud on Wednesday after the great performance by our lads, unfortunately we lost. Today v Arsenal I think we’ll do well again and manage a draw.

    Sorry for the long post.

    I think we should try and get Frank Lampard. He’s pissed off that he’s not getting games at Chelsea so he’d be fired up to prove a point at Newcastle, also he’s be super cheap (I can almost hear Mashley licking his lips…)

    remy would be a great buy, he would inject a lot of pace into the squad if we played 3 upfront and if Ba doesn’t go in january he will probably be gone this summer meaning we need a new striker we can rely on.
    thebionicMAG i totally agree with you if we got someone like frank lampard to be able to hold up the midfield and play some calm football while we wait for the likes of Cabaye to come back out of injury and Tiote always losing his rag we should be looking to increase depth in midfield as well

    I feel another Plan B coming on!

    Think Remy will now be moving elsewhere, if you believe the above?

    Its the same old,same old; Linked with many, signing no-one; with new names being bandied around on here every day!
    Difficult to know just what is going on? And i prefer it that way!

    But who knows what is coming up in the next few days, there just may be one or two surprises lined up. I do very much hope so!
