LaProvence Reports Newcastle Bid For Remy In Next 24 Hours


In these transfer windows it’s often a question of which reports do you believe, but the LaProvence newspaper in southern France is reporting today that Newcastle are expected to go  in with a concrete bid for their number one target Loic Remy within the next 24 hours.

Loic Remy -300x168

Loic Remy – Newcastle to bid in next 24 hours
There are other reports out today suggesting that Remy will wait until the end of January before he makes his choice of club, and that’s not good for Newcastle, but this report is good news – if it’s correct.

With the help of Google translate and a little help from my own limited knowledge of French – this is one  translation from today’s report:

“Yesterday Loic Remy was still with his teammates in Marrakech, but the interest of several foreign clubs has not wavered.”  “Newcastle want Remy to be the successor to Demba Ba, who left for Chelsea, and is clearly in the lead on this issue.”

“The Northern England club should also go into high gear in the next twenty-four hours and give a concrete offer to Marseilles, of about $11M ( £8.8M).”

“Remy  has recently rejected the advances of Queens Park Rangers, but does he want to leave?    Is he interested in the challenge proposed by the Magpies?  Loïc Rémy would now be inclined to consider a departure from Marseilles and consider a career at the Newcastle club.”

There are reports today that Newcastle have not yet lodged a formal bid for Remy, even though Derek LLambias met with Marseilles officials over the weekend, so at least that part is consistent.

This was reported today – and we hope LaProvence are correct.

    REPOST FROM PREVIOUS POST…. and my point proven although this is actually worth reading being a report, not a personal opinion from thin air like the last post.

    Wes –

    We are not slating Ed, you are jumping to the conclusion that we are.

    We are simply stating Ed, despite his hard work and commitment to this blog, sometimes posts something that is totally not needed. Then some of the simple minded folks like sheep will use it and spread it.
    If we have quotes from the club, managers, coaches, players etc then yes we have reason it.

    In no way are we hating on Ed, we appreciate it, but when people have conversations on a previous post and have to flick between because this opinion, garbage and non factual post is somewhat supposed to be breaking news.

    It also adds to the tension, and negativeness around the club during transfer windows, everyone panics because we failed to land the 18 targets NUFCblog posted up. In reality we have have only been after 1 perhaps 2 of them!

    Thought they had already bid for him??
    While we wait in anticipation do the powers that be carry on looking at other positions to cover ie a CB or do they plod on 1 player at a time?
    When does this window end btw?

    Referring back to Erdinc, saw him play for Rennes when I was over there a month ago and he’s nothing special at all, really don’t think he’d cut it.

    and now people panic as everyone ASSUMED we had a bid in for him already when it looks like we haven’t.

    Why doesn’t everyone just go with the flow – until something is confirmed it isn’t official. Saves heartaches, meltdowns, moaning.

    I have never read we have had a bid in for Remy, infact last I read someone related to OM club (manager or chairman or someone) confirmed NO bids had been placed for Remy.

    This would generally mean ….. NO BIDS FOR REMY. Yet somehow people manage to twist to what they want to believe and in many respects similar to Geoff I come here to chat not read the blog if am honest. Ok the odd news now and then, but I only read quotes and reports not opinions.

    Ed actually adds fuel to the fire during the window and its causes upset amongst those that visit the blog.

    First offer for Remy was turned down, Lambias wanted to pay part in tracksuits the rest in nectar points depending on appearances….He has given them 24hrs before we move onto next target.

    If we do bid it will be a del boy special that will fail miserably or invent a snag that isn’t there. Frustration isn’t the word more hatred now

    Is it just me thinks we need a striker/ winger rather than just an out and out striker?

    I thought ba was good on the wing, but he’s gone.
    Ben arfa is class so that 1 sorted.

    But who is to play on the left?
    Guti (he can play but not as a winger)
    Obertan (I don’t mind him as a reserve as he’s showing signs of improving, not starter though)
    Fergie (well at least not yet)
    Cisse (fcuk off the wing)
    Marveaux (perhaps but he’s better in the middle)
    For me, we need a striker /winger, which remy appears to be (less so aubameyang)

    So you come on a blog but dont want to read opinions?
    Make sense, oh and Ed got the reports that we had made a bid from the several papers that said we had if he waited to post news from nufc.com then where would be the point in the blog?

    Why are people having a dig at Ed?

    All he’s doing is posting a report from a french newspaper.

    If you dont like it then get back to newsnow and keep your opinions to yourself.

    i know he’s old and very, very injury prone, but i think we should go for Dyer.. we know he has class, and i think he would accept a pay-as-you-play contract, just like Hargreaves did with City, it would minimize the gamble we take on him, as when he gets injured, he won’t get payed.. thoughts?

    A chatroom would work better than the comments.
    There are lots of WordPress plugins.

    But you can’t put ads in the chatroom and the blogs page views would tumble. How many times do you refresh the page?

    Thought of dyer since he was released. Surely he cant be worse than our players. Though its highly unlikely we will go for him under the current regime

    Half of you lot only turn up during a transfer window and you use your time to slag off Ed.

    He is the one who tries to compile other oeoples info into a place where we can discuss it.

    A bid within the next 24 hours?
    Why can ‘t we put the bid in NOW? Why have we got to p**s about with every transfer that we do?
    Probably because our esteemed Managing Director is trying to get him for fifteen quid, a packet of Tudor crisps and a years free membership at Aspers.
    There again why should we be held to ransom? We don’t really need two strikers, a central defender, a creative midfield player and a top winger do we?
    It’s a joke!!

    Rather the comments like they are atm, theres so many chatrooms floating about anyway. With how it is on here its easier to actually take in other users comments, considering people like to write essays on here sometimes, plus match days would be an horrific abomination 🙂

    For all those that only come onto the blog and don’t know who Ed is.

    Ed is a Geordie that moved to America to work for IBM. He has his family over there with him and is now retired.

    On average he writes about 6 posts a day, 7 days a week and posts info dependent in European time not American meaning that the post your reading was probably written at about 3 in the morning.

    He also tries to write 365 days a year, regardless of whether he is on holiday, he is at a family arrangement or has many things to do. If he can’t post he writes us all an apology. Who else would do that?

    The man battled through cancer and yet still gave us this forum to talk about info from media, rumour and fact.

    The man is dedicated to NUFC and despite all that is happening tries to remain positive and tries to see things from an objective point of view knowing that we are the ones that contradict each other, fight with our opinions and talk utter rubbish at times.

    Without Ed I’d have no where to talk about my passion with other NUFC fans on a daily basis and some of us despite our love cannot make it onto the terraces every week to chat with like minded individuals.

    I’m not saying spare Ed of any criticism as he enters the domain of blogging and thus can be judged by the personal content he adds into any post. But to slag the man off with the mindlessness of those today is pathetic.

    Go back to complaining about how edward was potrayed in the latest twilight movie you bunch of 1 direction loving little teenage girls.
