Reports Newcastle Want To Sign Loic Remy In The Summer


Metro is reporting that Newcastle will go after Loic Remy in the summer if QPR are relegated, and of course the French striker will leave the London club via that release clause he has in his contract.

Loic Remy – Newcastle still interested

We’d be very surprised if this news was true, after Loic rejected Newcastle for more money in January, and joined a club that has only around 17,000 in home gates, and was literally rock bottom of the league when he signed.

But it seems that Remy would have been a great acquisition for Newcastle, if we had signed him in January, since he’s scored 5 goals in 8 league appearances for QPR, who now look like they will be relegated in May.

Newcastle had been in the driver’s seat in January to sign the striker to replace Demba Ba, who went to Chelsea,  but at the very last moment QPR crept in and signed the French International striker.

They did it by offering him sky high wages, and Tony Fernadandes the owner got personally involved, but he wouldn’t get those wages at Newcastle this summer.

Newcastle were less than happy with his agents and Remy himself,  that they were blind-sided by them meeting in London with QPR,  without Newcastle’s knowledge.

There is news that Aston Villa want the striker, but we think there will be a lot more clubs than just Villa who will want Loic Remy in the summer,  after his good goal scoring form for QPR.

Let us know if you think we should sign Loic this summer – given what happened in January.

Should Newcastle Sign Loic Remy This Summer

    Obviously left us feeling a bit sour after January, but he was deemed good enough before, has shown his credentials at a joke of a team since, so why not?

    If Villa had Remy and Benteke they’d be a real threat to a lot of defences – better he comes to the Toon

    Would take Benteke and Remy then we would have great attacking options with Pappis !

    Chronicle said Newcastle WON’T go after Remy, now the Metro says we will.
    I know which of the lesser evil I’m picking.

    Don’t know why anyone would say no. Everyone was hurt when he fecked off to qpr. That was a very depressing day

    But there is no question he would improve our team.

    imo he’s a mercenary in the making. If he was inclined to go to a rock bottom club for sake of drawing a bigger check, he could just as easily leave us if a bigger club shows interest.

    I suppose as a last resort though should Aubameyang get swooped up.

    Whilst Remy probably did not behave correctly and perhaps reneged on what he was initially going to do after being waylaid by Dirty Harry, without doubt he is a good footballer.
    That goal at the weekend was class – a side footer from in excess of 30 yards. Most players would have controlled the ball and took it further on before taking a shot. Really audacious to contemplate it in the first place.
    Type of player we need is of the Remy/Aubameyang/Belhanda type.

    In two minds on Remy he is a good player but at the toon he wouldn’t get the wage he is wanting and would leave at the first opportunity for more cash. We want players who want to play football for the fans and getting a few grand a week to do it is a bonus

    Bony, Remy, Aubumeyang (will never remember how it’s spelt unless he signs) all great candidates imo.

    Don’t know if anyone has noticed this yet but was looking at the league table and realised that only manure, Chelsea and city have won more home games than newcastle all season and no one has lost more away games

    Thinks that’s hard to believe

    How come we have been so bad away from home

    How come we have been

    Newspapers arent to be trusted but metro seems more right to me than the chronicle. I mean if remy is free, do people really think DL+MA wont see that as a great deal? 10million cheaper than 6months ago.

    Northern Irish….That is quite surprising. I knew our away from has been awful, but wouldn’t have featured us as being one of the top home performers…suppose that’s something 🙂

    Can’t think of a reason why we’ve been so poor on the road however…how come indeed.

    @northernirishtoon
    What the stat says is really our lack of belief.
    Winning home and away is often about mentality. We think it’s easier to win home, therefor play with more confidence, with a bad record away, that just continues until you can get a run of results.

    @dannyo good point.

    @ibizia depends if u believe rumours or not lol. Sum say he has a relegation clause letting him walk out ( like ba) others say half price if they are relegated (5mil) others say no clause at all.

    I think aub shud be first target but if he fails remy is number 2 for me.

    Northern Irish – Reading have lost more away from home that us but you’re right regarding home games, we’re up there with the best on home turf.

    Perhaps we need to look at why we are so bad away from home. Are we leaving it too late to travel or has lousy travel arrangements?

    On remy you can see the boy is a quality player and if he was available for a couple of million he would be an excellent addition. I would need to swallow some pride though as being turned down for more money at qpr has left a foul taste. Imagine this current side with Remy in the eleven, cisse, remy and bena arfa would make an excellent attacking three.

    Heart says no…

    Head says hell yeah!

    He had no loyalty to us, or anybody else. His time at QPR has shown he can cut it in the Orem, and in that respect, maybe QPR did us a favour.

    Aubameyang IS our #1 target, but Remy would be a good option. He plays his best football alongside a second striker ie cisse.

    NorthernIrish – ah i see, 1 away win in 16 is lousy as is 10 defeats. Its been a pretty strange season. If we can get another striker in and get everyone fit for the start of next season then we could be in for a treat
