Very bad news tonight for Newcastle fans, as it seems that money talks and Loic Remy has indeed been talking to QPR – and it looks like they have won the race to sign the striker – and heaven knows what wages they have agreed to pay the striker - but £85K/week seems to be a popular estimate.
What’s wrong with this picture?
Loic Remy - off to QPR
QPR have put a much better wage deal together for the French International and it looks like he will accept it and join the bottom placed club.
And it must be true because Joey Barton, on loan from QPR, broke the news on that Twitter account of his:
“Just heard from a magician that Loic Remy has signed for QPR.” “Not sure what happened at Newcastle probably Managing Director Derek Llambias again.
“Gift of the gab from Harry Redknapp perhaps? Thought it was done and dusted to Newcastle.” “Something must of gone amiss. .”
This is not only a hammer blow to the Newcastle club – but a hammer blow to the fans – and to think we couldn’t wrap the deal up – but money talks, and the news is they will also pay massive wages to get Yann M’Vila too.
This puts Newcastle back looking for another striker – when it looked odds on that Newcastle would tie up Remy – but now we are back to square one – and Remy has gone where the big money is.
Its also just a little scary that QPR are beneath Newcastle in the league, but they are strengthening big time in January.
We know we cannot compete for big players with the top six clubs in England – but to be hijacked out of a deal by the bottom of the league club which gets a measly 18,000 fans at home games is embarrassing to say the least.
Alan Pardew must be pulling his hair out – I am.
QPR are trying to buy their way into staying in the Premier League – now how many players have they bought since Tony Fernandes took over the club?
The best way to look at this is that Remy, like Demba Ba before him – went for the big money – so did we want him at Newcastle – probably not.
Sorry – but that’s the best I can do.
