Newcastle Step Up Pace To Sign Remy – Fulham After Bent


Reports in France today suggested that Newcastle have broken off talks with Lyon for their 27 year-old striker Bafetimbi Gomis, and will now concentrate on trying to tie up a deal for Loic Remy of QPR this week.

France/Malte- Espoirs - 05.09.2008 - Qualifications - Euro2009 -

Loic Remy – will Newcastle now try to sign him to permanent deal?

One good question is whether Newcastle will now try to sign Loic Remy outright, after they seem to have pulled away from the Gomis deal.

We were surprised that Newcastle were only going for a loan deal for Remy, but in an article we put out on Saturday that seemed a sensible approach for a number of reasons that we detailed,  and one of those was that Remy was still on bail from a rape charge.

So we would  expect Newcastle to still try to negotiate a loan deal for next season for the 18 times capped french International, and that will not cost too much – maybe a loan fee and to an agreement to pay some of Remy’s £75K/week wages he is getting at QPR.

Darren Bent is the other striker we are interested in – we know that because Alan Pardew has told the world we are after Gomis, Remy and Bent – but why Alan did that we have no idea, and it’s always best to keep quiet on the specific players the club is after.

But there is news today that Fulham may become interested in Darren Bent again, after they missed out on their top target, Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo – and they may be willing to pay out the money Aston Villa are demanding for 29 year-old Bent – since they have a new Billionaire owner, Shahid Khan, who recently bought the club.

We think any two of Gomis, Remy and Bent would be good for Newcastle – with our preference for Gomis and Remy.

    RE post:

    Holy Grail

    Your logic is flawed when applied to the Gomis deal.

    Strikers are commodities and sometimes you have to pay a little extra for a decent striker.

    Lyon have told the world their minimum price is 10 million euros, Gomis and his representatives have leaked to the press his desire to join NUFC and the only thing standing in the way was NUFC’s offer for the player.

    His reps were due to fly to Tyneside today, we didn’t have a bigger club come in to slow the deal, it was OUR decision to not meet the asking price, it was OUR decision to cool down the interest and OUR decision to cancel meeting his reps.

    If it boils down to prefereneces for players, going on ability I would take Remy every time out of the three. Gomis, is skillful but slower than continental drift, Bent is a walking attitude problem who is bone idle on the pitch. If we do sign Remy on loan with an option to buy, then it’s win-win all round as far as I’m concerned.

    Breaking news:

    Dictionaries will now contain an image of Kinnear as the sole definition of the word useless as well as using Pardew to define tw@t.

    I would be quite comfortable having Cisse, Remy Gouffran, Shola and Campbell untill January.

    We desperately need some proper wingers

    i agree as we need a bully type to lead the line imo.
    remy would be class in a 3 prong with cisse and goofy but it still means if cisse (the most forward) striker gets injured we are buggered.

    Yeah. I think gomis would have been this player, likewise Bent or Gignac. Shola is the only option we have now, which is not exactly wonderful news.

    There is no point in signing Bent, not only will it take him months 2 be match fit, but also he’s 2 similar Cisse in da way he’s more suited 2 number 9. There’s no chance he will be choosen ahead of cisse, which mean he will sit on the bench, when he comes on he will do nothin and every1 will say he’s crap, waste of money, lost it years ago. Bent will have 2 go somewhere he can’t get 1st team football, and that’s not newcastle

    Keegan said after he quit Newcastle under the MA circus that due to the lack of football knowledge within the club they have no idea about getting transfers in, always no organisation and penny pinching and missing out on targets!
    How right he was. (Joke club)!

    If we are to believe the propaganda that NUFC, is a forward thinking club. Then why have they brought call me Joe, the guy that relegated us and blamed the legend that is Shearer for his cock-up back? The more you watch and listen to these thick twats the more you realise they are having a laugh at our expense. Call me joe doesn’t know what day it is never mind which strikers to sign, the guy’s been out of football since he collapsed with a heart attack. No take anything these chancers say with pinch of salt.

    ………and yet again we have a pre-season with players coming in either too late or not at all.

    Surely the idea of a pre-season is to bed in new players to work with new team mates, and to understand and work in line with the manager’s thinking. (OK strike the last)

    Remy maybe taking a pay cut to come newcastle, but prices for everything in london is double anyway, like properties. Surely he won’t we loose out 2 much. And even if he does, its not like he won’t survive on 40k a week

    Remy might be a better choice anyways if not for his pace.

    I was totally against signing him before but of course we are getting desperate now, but does anyone else have the feeling him and Cisse won’t gel very well?

    What i find perplexing is this….

    After the dennis wise c0ck up, Ashley admitted it was a mistake, and said he had learned from it. So, why in the name of syphillitic monkey sperm has he done EXACTLY the same thing?

    I reckon remy and cisse would be an ideal partnership. Cisse and ba both were similar types of player, whereas remy is the type of pacy forward who could play off cisse.
