Newcastle Want Loic Remy – And He Wants To Join Magpies


Alan Pardew has said today that he is fairly satisfied with the defense and midfield at Newcastle, but he wants more reinforcements up front.

Loic Remy – Newcastle him – he wants to come

And the manager also hinted he was overloaded a bit in midfield and one or two players could still leave this summer, and one of them will in all likelihood be Dan Gosling, who we expect to move to Crystal Palace.,

And with Papiss Cisse now likely to leave, if no solution can be found to him refusing to wear the Wonga insignia, we could see Newcastle bring in three new strikers this summer.

And news today in the local papers that Newcastle are still talking to Loic Remy’s representatives – yes those are the ones that did the dirty on Newcastle in January, when they secretly arranged a meeting with QPR in London, after asking Newcastle to arrange Remy’s medical in London rather than on Tyneside.

That was not good, but it seems Newcastle officials are willing to overlook the huge mistake made by our number one striker choice in January, and Newcastle still want to sign the 26 year-old 18 times capped French International.

The reports in the Evening Chronicle today are that Loic Remy wants to join Newcastle, so it seems both parties are willing to forget what happened in January, and although it very rarely happens on Tyneside – we could see a player who rejected us – still join the club.

While we never thought that would happen, we’d welcome Loic to Newcastle – everybody makes a mistake in their career at some point – and just imagine if we get Gomis too – we’ll essentially have two of the best French strikers at the club.

As a recap, Remy played three season at Marseilles with 95 appearances and 39 goals, and this year at a struggling QPR side, he played 18 times with four goals.

If we get both Bafetimbi Gomis and Loic Remy – we’d still need one more striker if Papiss Cisse is sold – so maybe that’s Darren Bent.

If we can get Gomis (£6M), Remy (£7M) and Bent (£4M) through the door for around £17M  – that would be very good business for Newcastle.

And we’d have three good strikers up front, with 18 year-old Adam Campbell ready to show what he can do in a black and white shirt at his local club.

And new Frenchman Yoan Gouffran can also play up front, so Shola Ameobi would then in all likelihood be sold.

So there’s still time to turn this summer into a successful transfer window – just get Gomis, Remy and Bent through the door and we’d be happy enough, in fact we’d be very happy.

Go for it Joe!

    I would welcome him.

    Given Freddy Shepherd’s view of Geordie women they should be quite safe with Remy around!

    Cardozo to replace cisse, with gomis and remy playing either side of him in a 4-3-3? That’ll do me like.

    Remy is the best forward we’ve been linked to. More like the quality that a NUFC striker should be.

    The rape case is a huge concern and I can’t see us going for him for that reason.

    Mr Tudor @ 46 previous page ‘the name on the back is no where near as big as the badge on the front’

    That would be the big blue Wonga badge you’re talking about, John, just to avoid any confusion?

    Cardozo would fit that lone striker role for us superbly. I’m not convinced by Gomis, I have seen him look superb, and seen games where he couldn’t hit a barn door. But, if Cisse is going, and we replaced him and Ba with Gomis Remy nad Cardozo, I think we would look in good shape. Remy is a slight worry due to this case if he were to be convicted we would be a striker down, but with Goofy, Campbell and Vuckic, we could cope I think.

    If we get those 3 it is time to send Campbell on loan.

    (Still giant IF’s on all of these though!)

    It purely depends on the club this deal. Two things

    1. do they want to risk money on somebody who may end up charge, then possibly convicted of a serious crime

    2. do they want to risk the reputation of the club on such a player.

    It’s a risk until we know for sure the outcome of the investigation. The question the club need to ask…is he worth the risk.

    True we could of stayed with virgin, but we didn’t

    So know Mr. Ashley had to either back his player or back his choice
    I think we both know which choice he will make!

    Skank
    Exactly mate, so it’s in cisse’s interst to find a compromise and quickly whether that be, a blank top, a contract, a transfer before it gets any further out of hand

    Risk the reputation?

    What reputation?

    We have a reputation of signing criminals and nothing more.

    I don’t think the reputation part will cross anyone’s mind (within the club). The cash part however, will be at the forefront!

    Sage,
    Are they? I can’t see it. They have just got Negredo, and Jovetic is virtually done. They still have Dzeko and Aguero, so not sure how Cordozo would fit in, unless they were selling one of those 2. They also have Guidetti, who will have to breakthrough or move on this year.

    True, we have had some bad players over the years in terms of reputation.

    I’d like to think we can clean this up though and avoid these kind of players…why sign somebody who may be charged and possibly then convicted on such a serious crime.

    sport seems to be the only profession where you can get away with a terrible criminal record.

    just for the record…want to say i’m not jumping to conclusions, remy may be innocent, just dont want to risk it until we know one way or the other.

    not 100% sure, just read it in the papers. I think they have enough.

    But then again there are talks of madrid in for Aguero and then even dzeko moving on too…so possibly might want him in.

    Guidetti will never make it at city, just wont happen now…not a big enough name and hasn’t done enough with them. Worth a loan offer i think.

    If true, it’s a bit odd that Percy says he’s satisfied with the defence and midfield, when we’ve bought nobody in, lost a few (perch was a big loss IMO), and he spent most of last season telling anyone who cared to listen that the squad was too small etc etc. fully expecting the ‘having colo back is like a new signing’ chestnut now, but does this mean that when we revert back to his stone-age tactics that he can’t use squad size as an excuse?

    Lilongwe – just seen your post on the previous thread and it is much appreciated.

    Although it doesn’t change my devastation at the situation Papiss has found himself in!!

    Would love for it to get sorted, and there is a willingness on all sides, the fact is that once you cross Ashley it is usually a 1 way ticket out of here.
