Note To Kinnear – Fans Want This Striker Signed By Newcastle


We had posed the question whether Newcastle would forget that Loic Remy rejected us last January, and go back in for the QPR striker, since he’s available for just £8M from QPR.

Loic Remy – majority of fans want him signed

And to judge the mood of the fans,  we put out another poll on whether Newcastle should sign the 18 times capped French International,  who scored an impressive 6 goals in 14 appearances for QPR this year.

And the results are that a 64% majority of fans want this lad signed up – Joe Kinnear please take note.

Certainly if Newcastle can get Wigan striker Arouna Kone and Loic Remy on board for just £13M in total, that would be good business, with both players having proved they can score goals in the Premier League.

But the Evening Chronicle are reporting that Newcastle have pulled out of the race to sign Kone – so we weren’t in very long?

Here’s the results of the poll so far on Remy, and it’s still open if you haven’t yet voted.

Should Newcastle Try To Sign Loic Remy For £8M This Summer?

    It shows how much we desperately need a striker if the majority are willing to fund for an “alledged rapist”. Especially with the bad media we have had lately.

    Complete madness through my eyes.

    Take note Mike.

    From Aubameyang to Bent, Kone and Remy.

    Newcastle United are going nowhere with this redundant ambition.

    Bent – 29, wrong attitude, his best days have passed as a footballer, demands high wages, spoils team morale if he is not in the starting 11.

    Kone – 29, his best days have passed as a footballer.

    Remy – he rejected us for Queens Park Rangers a mere 7 months ago because he wanted more money, wrong attitude.

    Don’t understand the logic in bidding for a player then pulling out of the deal
    JFK not following MA’s orders?
    Or is it a case of JFK having no clue who he’s bidding for? Tbf Kone sounds alot like remy and QPR and Wigans kits look similar, well same colours! Honest mistake joe anyone would get confused in those circumstances!

    We should try our hardest to sign a CB, Wjinaldum and Siem de Jong and move on from this prolonged nightmare.

    I’ve said it once and I will say it again. How morally bankrupt are you wanting to sign somebody associated with a alleged RAPE?

    No wonder I find this club so repugnant of late!

    Pretty sure MA isn’t one to swallow his pride, so after Remy’s rebuffing of the deal in Jan, I don’t think we’ll be back in for him. Would have to take a wage cut anyway, no doubt. And then there’s the potential for him to be criminally charged.

    Slim to no chance.

    On Kone, I reckon he’s just told us he has no interest in joining us, as he already has himself mentally at Everton, which I’m glad about.

    Dondatta13 – You have no idea what actually happened so therefore you should not judge Remy for it. He may well be guilty but there is also a good chance he isnt. There are a lot of f’d up women out there that do cry rape.

    Tads,

    I hear what what your saying. But, that’s a hell of a gamble that like at this moment in time, innocent or guilty

    I suppose it would get MA his much needed attention fix for Sports Direct. We would make front page.

    Please notice I did state alleged rape…

    I never said he was guilty but a slur like that, even if no conviction is attained, sticks with the individual.

    Hence the Bramble comment.

    If/when Remy goes to court and is splashed and hounded by the press…

    Do you really think his head will be in the right place to play football?

    Am I the only one who is getting a bid fed up with us only being interested in French players, or even French speaking players? I love the guys we have signed, but on the scale of things, there are a lot more countries in the world to find players! I’d love us to sign a new Nobby Solano or Daniel Cordone…(that last one was perhaps pushing it)…oh, and I don’t include Darren Bent here as there’s nothing concrete on us being interested I don’t think!

    There’s bound to be floods of young up and coming talent in Germany, Spain, Russia, South America…even countries like Ukraine and Poland…so why just focus on France? Wonder if Graham Carr just likes going there for his holidays and the great food 🙂

    Excellent interview with Perchino on BBC Total Sport – true gent.
    He was told in february that he would not get a new contract and the TOON re-affirmed the decision at the end of the season.

    Can i just say i totally forgot about the rape claim. If that is the reason we aren’t in for him it is a genuinely a good reason his head wont be in the right place(as said above) and he would be getting booed in every stadium and im not sure he has the attitude to deal with that.

    He’s kicking a ball round the pitch not sleeping on me couch
    And how does that stick with someone if found not guilty or there not even charged?
    Very narrow minded view

    Perchy has always handled himself in a top manner, good interview admitted his shock but had no hard feelings and is gearing up for the challenge of promotion, good luck to the lad

    Narrow minded view?…

    Erm, I can assure you my friend I have a well calibrated moral compass..

    Yes he’s kicking a ball around a field, being paid thousands of pounds. Do I want my kids idolizing someone with a slur like that attatched to him? Hell NO!

    How does an allegation stick to someone… Like it or not it does… Go ask Mr Bramble

    He hasn’t even been charged with rape.

    He was bailed, but wasn’t charged.
