Joey Barton Says Loic Remy Staying At Marseilles


It may be bad news on the Loic Remy front, and just like we failed to get out number one target to Newcastle last summer Luuk de Jung, is could be that we will also fail to get Loic Remy to Newcastle in January.

Joey Barton – Remy staying put

Marseilles manager Elie Baup had said yesterday that he thought his top striker might stay and the club and when Barton was asked on that twitter account of his – yes he still has it active – if he could help to get Remy To Newcastle he tweeted the following:

“Think think he’s decided to stay put mate. Were all happy as he’s a big player for us and were trying to win the league”

Certainly Joey Barton and Marseilles are having a very good season, and they had one of their best starts ever, and at the moment they are level on 38 points with PSG and Lyon, but are third top because of their much poorer goal difference.

And Joey Barton seems to be doing well in France, and as well as picking up a French accent there, he was last month’s Player of the Month at the south France club, and of course he let everybody know that with his latest tweet.

But all the signs now seem to suggest Loic Remy will not move anywhere in January,  but will stay with Marseilles to try to get them as French Champions again.

That’s not good news for Newcastle.

    I know last time we were ‘too good’ to go down and there were worse teams…but in that side we had a terrible manager (before people complain the managers that year were worse than pardew) and we had a lot of players with no desire to fight to keep us up…oba martins, michael owen (key players as goals keep you up, need to win).

    I think we have much more about us and we will get out of it…a lot more experienced international who are in their prime years or a bit younger. Not washed up has beens as some were.

    This is Joey talking. He would talk all day about anything as long as his tiwt page was active.

    Personally I think Mick Lowes’ comments were a load of twaddle. He obviously believed in what he was saying, but I think all Newcastle are doing is the football equivalent of window shopping.
    Having a look at what’s on offer without any real intention of buying. If they see anything the really like and can afford they may be tempted but unlikely.
    They will then tell anyone who is prepared to listen about how many bargains they nearly got, but they weren’t quite right.

    I agree with Torq Toon

    Joey Barton is on loan at OM. What does he know about board room activity. If OM accept a bid from Newcastle then its obvious that they dont want Remy.

    AC was happy at Newcastle till we accepted a bid.

    But then until Newcastle actually put in a bid then its all paper talk and hearsay

    Young established French international fighting for a league title doesn’t want to sign for a failing Newcastle United to fight against relegation? Crazy so and so he is

    Still might rock up but very unlikely

    On a side note who was spouting on the radio about NUFC close to signing multiple players?

    Hi,

    Have been following this blog for a couple of years now and finally decided to leave a comment!

    I personally think, that the Remy deal never looked likely as the player never seemed keen from what he has said/agents have said.

    I would much prefer to go for a player who will want to wear the mighty black and white shirt with pride rather than signing for the money. Then again, this is a rare trait among footballers these days.

    Bottom line is we need some bodies through the door ASAP. Our first team Is depleted through injury and our reserves showed against Brighton (and other teams this year) that they aren’t up to it. So move on from Loic Remy to Aubamayang I reckon. I have seen the lad play and he has lightning pace and knows where the net is.

    Thoughts?

    how is started 11 games a regular when most teams have played 21 plus cup games.

    I’m amazed we have managed to get the people we have done here as pardew’s negative defensive hoofball is not exactly going to be attractive to quality players. Plus we have a wage cap, So getting Benny, Cabs, Debuchy 3 French internationals and others like Santon etc almost defies belief.

    Relegation year was different. Most of our ‘big’ stars were well-paid journeymen with reputations and the desire to find another club before the season ended, so didn’t care about the ship as long as they could jump off. I would be surprised if any such names exist in this team at this point, they still have a lot to prove before clubs bang on our door for them.

    We had players that didn’t have the fight in them when we went down…not to be argumentative but been awhile since I have seen some fight or desire from our current crop

    And if the managers lost the dressing room it doesn’t matter how good he is and there have been signs

    Tell you all one thing, If and its an IF, if we get relegated I fear the worst.

    I dont think we will come straight back up. The side that went down the last time had a decent spine of hard grafting English players eg Harper, Taylor, Nolan, Barton, Carroll etc. Add Enrique, Colo, Jonas etc to that.

    I just cant see Cabaye, Ben Arfa, Cisse, Santon, Debuchy et al staying at Newcastle, nor do I see Colo or Jonas doing another stint in the Championship

    That leave us with a very very paper thin squad with no quality

    Worrying times, which is why we have to buy now and buy well!!

    I agree, he doesnt know anything. He basically said that he’d chatted to a few people at the club and got an “inkling” that there may be some business done.

    He knows as much as you or I mate

    there is no fight in some of the lads I agree.

    But players like cabayae, ben arfa, marvoux (impressed me a lot recently), anita, bigi, perch, santon, cisse have all showed some fight.

    Mick Lowes says 3-5 players could be in this window. Hmmm who on your shopping list boys and girls? I think Remy might be a bluff/smokescreen.

    My list.
    Sakho/Mbiwa or Alderweild
    Tompkins/Douglas or Pieters
    Sissoko or Diame
    PEA or Remy
    other winger/fwd or any of above

    thud and blunder

    I said the same about us being stuck if we go down this year as we would lose a lot of players…world cup years so our internationals would all want top flight football to have a chance to go brazil.

    Mick Lowes knows much more than us. People seem to think everything is well guarded secret. He wont know the ins and outs but will get some good info from people he knows.

    Not saying things are definite as he said they are in advanced negotiations and they can still collapse.

    But don’t just write off anything you hear.
