Remy – I’ll Give My All For Newcastle – I Hope Fans Accept me

3:18 pm, Tuesday, August 6th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 174 Comments

Here’s some more of the nufcTV interview with Loic Remy and one or two bits that we didn’t cover in our previous article on it today.

Loic Remy – in the Newcastle dressing room

And it looks like 18 times capped French international Remy will be presented to the Newcastle fans on Saturday night at St. James’ Park, just before our last pre-season game

Here’s some more of what Loic said on nufcTV yesterday:

“Everyone has been very friendly since I arrived and I am looking forward to playing my first match, whenever that will be.” “I only had half a season in the Premier League last year so am looking forward to a full season this time around.”

“Hopefully I can show the fans and the club exactly what I am capable of, both with my goals and my team play, and I hope and believe the public will accept me into the club as soon as possible.

“I feel the Premier League is great for me as an attacker. The opportunities for a player of my position are better in England than they are in France.”

“I don’t necessarily know if I’m a better player for it, but I learnt a lot from my first six months in England.” “I’m a player who will work hard and give my all for the club in order to make things happen.”

It wasn’t good that Loic turned us down in January, but hey – that’s all water under the Tyne Bridge now, and we hope the Newcastle fans give Loic a fantastic reception on Saturday night – this lad can become a great player in the famous black and white stripes of Newcastle.

It’s a very good interview with Loic, and we just wish Newcastle would release it, so that all Newcastle fans can watch it – whether or not they have a nufcTV subscription or not – the club should do that for the first interview for each new signing.

Now for something out of the ordinary and an interesting couple of stories about Newcastle – my daughter Elaine was the make-up artist on a film being shot last week in Raleigh, and the Director (an American) said she supported Newcastle United, so my daughter Elaine said my Dad runs a blog on them.

The woman said yes I read it – and asked why she supported Newcastle – she said she liked to support the underdogs. :(

My daughter told me this story only yesterday – just before we got Remy finally signed, and an hour ago I received a very nice email from a new Newcastle supporter Alex, from NY City, and he said he was new to soccer (football is called that over here).

He’s been supporting Newcastle since February, and that was after he had watched that great game with Chelsea, when Sissoko scored those two brilliant late goals to win it for the lads 3-2 – and Alex was indoctrinated there and then, as another Newcastle supporter.

Alex doesn’t like supporting the big clubs like Manchester United or City or Chelsea, he tells me that was not an option for him, and says he liked to support the underdogs and that’s why he’s now a Newcastle United supporter, and after our gutsy performance against Chelsea.

Pity he didn’t see that Arsenal game over two years ago, when we came back to 4-4 after being 4-0 down after 26 minutes, and certainly Newcastle got fantastic publicity over here for that incredible comeback in the second half.

And I hastened to tell Alex that we were 5th in the league the season before last – but it’s interesting that we are getting new support over here – but as the underdogs.

We can change that – so maybe it’s got to be a top four finish next season, and we may even have to start the season by winning at Manchester City a week on Monday – that will show them. :D

And a final thought – wonder when we will sign Bafe Gomis?

Comments welcome – but please keep them civil.

    You’re one of us now lad, of course we’ll accept you.

  • 2 Ruddy Marveaux-lous // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:22 PM

    I also see that Conor Newton has went back on loan to St Mirren. Let’s hope he gets on as well as Dummett did for the whole season. I’ve heard a few people say Newton is a very good player so all the best to him.

  • 3 Big Pappa Cissé // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:22 PM

    Just knock a few goals in and all will be forgiven ;)

  • 4 Ibizatoon // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:22 PM

    To be fair, for most of my lifetime supporting the toon we’ve been the underdogs. I have no problem with that at all, the underdog gets to bite the big dogs ass and we all like biti…I’ve got this comment all mixed up, can anyone help me out?

  • 5 King Arfa // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:25 PM

    Course he will be accepted the guy is lethal in front of goal major coup for us in my eyes and I hope there’s a good chance we will have first refusal on him next summer if QPR don’t make it back up hey never know he may not want to go back after experiencing 52000 week in week out!

  • 6 Rainrix // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:27 PM

    Actually ed its been very civil today. I dont think anyones been threaten with violence at all today!

  • 7 Graeme // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:27 PM

    Once he starts scoring a few, shows he isnt frightened to put a shift in, he will be accepted with open arms.

    If we can get Cisse, Remy and Benny/ Gomis banging them in as a front three there will be 52,000 singing his name at SJP!!!

  • 8 scout // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:29 PM

    Have you seen how hard this lad can strike a ball.
    Best signing we could have wished for, although only for a season.
    Good luck lad

  • 9 Graeme // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:29 PM

    Ibiza – I would find a new passtime mate – leave the asses for other donkeys. You know its for the best!!

  • 10 Ibizatoon // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:31 PM

    Rainrix…If you correct Ed one more time I’ll knock you out sunshine. Idiot.

    Ed…Sorry, some people just don’t know how to be civil.

    Glad to be of help, best go grab a cheeky little siesta.

  • 11 Ibizatoon // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    Graeme…I feel you’re probably right :)

    Take it easy lads and lasses.

  • 12 croftus5678 // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:34 PM

    glad to hear we are not looking at downing as i really dont rate the lad ! as much as we need a winger i think we have better allready and thats saying a lot lol.

    ince/sinclair are my personal choices but its not to say we are even looking at any of those 2

  • 13 Ruddy Marveaux-lous // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:34 PM

    Ibiza

    No we’re not, we’re usually the epitome of calm…I’m not fooling anyone am I? haha

    I best be off myself, work beckons once more.

  • 14 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:35 PM

    Did remy snub us or could dekka simply not be arsed to meet him at the airport!!

  • 15 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:35 PM

    That’s how we claimed 5th spot by being the underdog (and a lot of luck)????
    Fingers crossed pardew has a plan B this season were looking like a quite a strong and capable squad right now. couple more in and none out a think 8th is realistic or even a cup, haha this remy signing has gone to me head a best slow down

  • 16 Rainrix // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:35 PM

    Theres always one isnt there?

  • 17 Willis // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:36 PM

    Hi Guys

    Does anybody know if this deal is with a view to permanent at the end of the season? ………………… is there an agreed price already????

    Or do we go through all this again next year?

  • 18 NoBigi // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:37 PM

    Has anyone else got a subscription to NUFC TV? Is the intereview really that good!!?

  • 19 toon kk // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    Remy will score against Sunderland and he’ll be remembered and cheered, he won’t half feel at home.

  • 20 croftus5678 // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    @17 willis

    not read anything about a buy out clause ect so far apart from one in an unreliable source !

    if he does well over the year though he will surely not want to go so fingers crossed .

  • 21 ArtyH // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:40 PM

    Remy is like all other footballers and everyone else come to that matter, in it for the money and who can blame him? Hopefully he will enjoy it at the toon and want to sign again next season, its up to toon fans to make him welcome. Think A.P should give Sylvan a DVD of Peter Beardsley’s games for the toon, as I’m sure he can play in the same sort of role, obviously not as good as Pedro but close enough, after all there was only one P.Beardsley. If S.M could cultivate the same level of intensity or come close to that I’m sure he would be a great asset to us and improve his overall standing at the toon, then the Nugget known as Pardew would have to play him…..

  • 22 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    When a say “none out” a forgot about Shola, Sammy and any other ameobi that’s kicking about, get rid of Obertan as well blokes never going to make it in the PL.

  • 23 DokToon // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:43 PM

    good grief, ruddy is back…

  • 24 croftus5678 // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:44 PM

    @22 toon

    tbh sammy is our best winger atm i wouldnt want him out lol.

    shamemobi fair enough same with ober and gos (as much as i like gos) and …..marv as i really cant see him fitting in now unless its as impact sub

  • 25 Willis // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:46 PM

    @20

    Cheers Croftus.

    I would like to think we would have something in place in case he is a success/not in prison (on a serious point).

    Heres hoping QPR don’t get promoted, cos they would want him gone then……………if they come up, then he might be recalled.

  • 26 jamesnufc86 // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:47 PM

    I know it’s a bit early, but, anyone think we could get a steam for tonight’s game ? I’m extremely hungover and it’s my only happy thought right now

  • 27 croftus5678 // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:48 PM

    @25 willis

    aye i’m with you on that lets hope they do rubbish next season ! i can see them going back up though in honesty.

  • 28 La Fée Verte // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    Is Remy our new number 9? Seems strange not having a number yet. I like Cisse and want to see him stay but think he could be leaving. Anyone else think this?

  • 29 ArtyH // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    Think I would be tempted to pull the plug on the Gomis deal or tell them if it does not go through in 48hrs the plug will be pulled. Get him for diddly next year as no one else will come in for him at that price with only 12 months left before it will be a freebee. I’d wait until the last day and go for Bent at around £3m and Downing for the same. Must sell Williamson, Shola, Obertan and Gosling, they are just not good enough. I think we should go for Ince and use Downing as a cover to get the deal done quickly and at a good price, take it or leave it style. Just MHO at this time.

  • 30 toon kk // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    Sammy will prove himself over the next season or two, he’ll never be a world beater but he’ll be a decent squad player.

  • 31 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:51 PM

    @croftus
    Am yet to see it from Sammy tbh, seen lil glimpses but not consistent enough. Friendlies are diff to the PL. if Marv had goofs work rate he would be class but just drifts in and out, might get to see the best out of him the coming season.
    Gos! Way say no more

  • 32 croftus5678 // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:51 PM

    no link for toon game yet but
    http://www.viplivesports.eu/football/168003/1/grasshopper-club-zurich-vs-olympique-lyon-live-stream-online.html
    lyon game in case gomis is playing

  • 33 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:52 PM

    Are we going for gomis incase remy gets sent down ya think?? Just a thought!

  • 34 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:55 PM

    Can’t see Cisse leaving after the Wonga fiasco.

  • 35 Shadow_Shearer // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:55 PM

    At newcastle united, the only thing we ask for is our players 2 give there 100%, and remy is an absolute quality player, reminds me of tierry henry. So I’m sure if u give your everything u will be accepted

  • 36 Burni // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:55 PM

    Just thought id share my ideal team for next season.

    Krul
    Debuchy, colo, mym, santon
    Sissokho, anita
    Cabaye
    Hba cisse remy

    But no doubt pards will play

    Krul
    Debuchy taylor colo santon
    Hba cabaye tiote guti
    Cisse gouffran.

    Ive just realised that the depth in the squad is ok atm but imo we still need a cb coz willo is not good enough. Marveaux and gouffran are both class acts but my first team I wrote is the best available imo.

  • 37 Moe // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:55 PM

    Willis @17

    http://www.getfootballnewsfrance.com/2013/loic-remy-deal-all-but-confirmed-bafetimbi-gomis-remains-in-france/

    @GFN_France say that there is a buy out clause of €11m (or £9.5m).
    It Doesn’t make much sense to me since tbh because wasn’t his original buy out clause the same as what they paid Marseille which is around £6.5M.
    Also we paid £2M already so is that figure is gonna be on top of the 2M or with it?

    but it seems that there is a buy out clause after all ..

  • 38 will die for the toon army // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:57 PM

    If we sign Gomis, Remy and Ince, That will make my window

  • 39 croftus5678 // Aug 6, 2013 at 3:59 PM

    @33 toon

    gomis is a different type of player to cisse/remy/goofy tbh he’s muscle on the back line and think he would suit the prem cisse/remy/goofy dont seem that strong to be the bully striker tbh.

  • 40 Moe // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:00 PM

    Remy is the most important deal for me, he adds things we lack.

    As long as a player is wearing the black & white shirt he should get the full support of me.

    But we shouldn’t get over excited by this and fool ourselves .. we still NEED another striker.

  • 41 Toonbyblood // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:00 PM

    Did anyone hear the rumor going around that since the Wonga deal we only take players on loan?

    He he.

  • 42 toon kk // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:01 PM

    Ince deal ain’t gonna happen in this transfer window, Jk is after more experienced players.

  • 43 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:02 PM

    @shadow
    Totally agree, all the people who don’t want him here won’t be celebrating when he bangs in the winner against the scum a take it?? Haha yeah right. We do also know how random the board can be so wouldn’t surprise me if there’s a few more ups and downs to come before the season! HWTL

  • 44 JP...from The Rock // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:02 PM

    yep we have to get rid of the few dead wood still floating around the place. Obertan and Strolla should be moved on ASAP.

  • 45 dembademba // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:03 PM

    Berni

    I agree with your best team but the second one (changing 2 players) is basically the team that got us fifth. all I want to see is attacking football, goals goals goals

  • 46 will die for the toon army // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:05 PM

    My best team;
    ………………………..Krul
    Debuchy………..Mbiwa……..Colo(c)……..Santon
    …………………Tiote……..Cabaye
    …………………………Sisoko
    ….Hatem……………..Cisse……………Remy

  • 47 niafron // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:06 PM

    Bonsoir messieurs.

    So what is the mood today? According to the people of this blog, will play Rémy winger or Striker?

  • 48 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:07 PM

    I’ve noticed that many fans on here have placed Remy on the left wing.

    Remy is right footed and having looked at some of his goals on You Tube most were scored from the right side of the field with his right foot.

  • 49 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:07 PM

    @croftus
    I’m with you I would also like to see Gomis here as well, ya never know we may start scoring corners with him around ha.
    A hope goofy has toughened up a bit great work rate but a thought he went down quite easy, good to come off bench.

  • 50 JP...from The Rock // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:11 PM

    I would play this fron three:

    Remy—-Cisse—-HBA

    I just love the look of that! :D

    HWTL

  • 51 Shadow_Shearer // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:12 PM

    I have friends who are manchester united fans, they can’t accept a single decision going against them, they think everything should go there was like spoilt kids. Then they always brag we’re the biggest club in the world. Although I have to remind them there one of the biggest, not THE biggest. They can’t even accept that!!
    Point is the bigger they are, they harder they fall.
    I would rather be an underdog!!
    Welcome Alex!!

  • 52 Newcastle Brown Alien // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:13 PM

    Get French Football ?@GFN_France 4m
    According to BUT!, Bafetimbi Gomis wants to join Marseille, despite the player’s comments on twitter earlier. #OM #NUFC #OL

  • 53 lesh // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:13 PM

    Remy will be given a roaring welcome to SJP as will all the players, I hope.
    As far as US fans supporting the underdogs, maybe Pardew and the boys should take that on board and perform well enough to be the Prem Equivalent of Best in Show at Crufts. Woof woof the lads!!!

    Rainrix, you’re presumabley aware of the Ruddy Rule? If not, look at it and act accordingly – and try to stop nit-picking Ed’s articles.

    As far as showing DVDs of past Neecastle stars, don’t stop at Pedro but show one of SuperaMac to Remy, Cisse, Goouffran, Shola and Gomis when he arrives. Doing that’ll remind those guys what the goal net’s for!

    There must be others that I’m sure other posters’ll have in mind.

  • 54 niafron // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:14 PM

    @Slank

    Well usually, with Marseille and the french national team, he played on the Right.

    Would prefer him top front however. or at least on the left cause, on the right, would be far more difficult for him to catch Beny’s pass.

    Well, fact is two year ago, i suggested it would be great to have Bény as the quaterback and Rémy as the wide receiver.

  • 55 richyg01 // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:18 PM

    I cant see us giving the No. 9 shirt to a player who is only on loan.

    Rumor is, hes gonna be 14.

  • 56 kevymartins // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:18 PM

    Seems to me like we have said to Gomis fcuk you we will just sign Remy instead and i’m glad because Lyon will soon find out that no one else will pay what we where willing to pay.

    Off topic I was watching a Wayne Rooney documentary there and 70% of his goals must have been scored vs us. Near every goal it showed was against Newcastle.

  • 57 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:19 PM

    JP

    I would play Ben Arfa in a free role behind Remy and Cisse.

    My team would be:

    Krul
    Debuchy – Mbiwa – Colo – Santon
    Tiote
    Cabaye – Sissoko
    Ben Arfa
    Remy – Cisse

    I’m sure that both Debuchy and Santon will, at every opportunity, get up field and support the attack.

  • 58 Mister Tuff // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:20 PM

    moe @30 – I agree with your reading of the situation that we need another striker. Whilst getting Remy is excellent -there is still a big if about his availability if he is charged with rape and the cops/court keep him in custody – he would probably be allowed bail but it is not a guarentee.
    So just in case the worst scenario unfolds we HAVE to have at least one other new forward -if we do not and the worst scenario prevails all the euphoria about getting Remy will be destined for the bin and we will revert to our current powder puff attack. Therefore Gomis at least for me.

  • 59 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:20 PM

    @shadow
    Me sisters bloke is a Manc and a man.u fan. God there an arrogant bunch aren’t they a don’t know if you have to learn this trait before coming a man.u fan or it just comes naturally to them but you just can’t seem to have a decent bit of quality footy banter with them.
    We have a lot of players looking to get into their countries teams for the World Cup next year. So there should hopefully be some great performances from these guys

  • 60 lesh // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:20 PM

    richyg01… Number 14?

    Unlucky for some..

    Think about that in the context of a mischeavous bingo caller!

  • 61 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:21 PM

    Niafron
    Is that assuming benny plays as a number 10?

  • 62 Newcastle Brown Alien // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:21 PM

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newcastle_United_F.C
    says he is number 14

  • 63 DokToon // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:22 PM

    lesh…

    im in the states, and i wholeheartedly have always supported the toon… anyone can buy a manure shirt, here… its easy to love a “winner”.. but for me, its NUFC… i went to the stoke city/houston dynamo match in my newcastle shirt as well.. . thers a few supporters over here… what we need is them to come back to the staes and show the US what kind of club we are…

  • 64 gaz 44 // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:24 PM

    Burni who have you put in that team that can win a header, that for me is why Saylor should be cb before yanga, sure I think yanga is prob gonna be better at ball playing and reading a game but remember this is the premier league the physical aspect is what this league sells itself on

  • 65 CullysFinest // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:25 PM

    Any fan that doesn’t accept the bloke is a tool, pace and a clinical finish up front is exactly what the team needs

    Seriously who gives if he rejected first time around, he is a quality, quality player

  • 66 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:27 PM

    Gaz,

    I would say that Williamson is a better header of the ball than Tailor but on all round ability I believe that Mbiwa is better.

  • 67 pawl250 // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:28 PM

    Gaz

    If we go by your theory of the PL then Shola will be starting every game !!!

    Please god no!

  • 68 gaz 44 // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:29 PM

    I agree that yanga will be better all round, but disagree williamsons a better header especially from set pieces he doesn’t know how to attack the ball the way saylor does, and although Taylor ain’t the fastest Williamson struggles to turn quicker than the titanic

  • 69 gaz 44 // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:31 PM

    Who in that team would beat hangeland, mertersacker, vidic, even fletcher of Sunderland, pace and flair is what the team should be built round but we need strong ball winners in the team, collo n mbwia are more ball playing centre backs

  • 70 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:32 PM

    CullysFinest @ 65

    I reckon that it took some guts (or humble pie) for Remy to come to us as he must have known that some fans would not be entirely welcoming.

    I bet he got some grief from some of our French players when he decided to go to QPR.

  • 71 ToonandGloom // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    @cully
    Same mate forgive and forget, n watch the goals fly in.

    It’s great when ya meet a Toon fan on ya travels I have gave away many a toon top to foreign supporters from Egypt to Mexico and even swapped tops with an inter fan who said newcastle was his 2nd team

  • 72 Shadow_Shearer // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    I would imagine we could activate remys release clause b4 the season finishes, as qpr will still be in the championship. Which will give us enough time 2 seal the deal.
    However if we leave it 2 next summer window, could be a different story. He could end up at spurs, or maybe back at qpr. So depends on his court case not being held up or adjourned.
    This is more imo. Its not something I’m 100% on.

  • 73 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    Gaz

    Comparing Williamson and Taylor is like arguing which is the faster the tortoise or the snail !

  • 74 colwell // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:37 PM

    If only we had offered him the same wages in Jan no doubt we would have finished in the top 10.

  • 75 niafron // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:38 PM

    @tads

    Yes, but this is also true if he play on the left. Cause he could find deadly angles of pass when he cut inside cause he’s left footed (having a left footed guy in midfield always offer a different kind of passing).

    Just look at this (1:30 on the vid):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaMOXRa3Ois

  • 76 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:40 PM

    Shadow

    I think the other French players may play a significant part in whether Remy leaves or stays with us.

    I sometimes think that we underestimate the camaraderie that must exist within the group of French players. They will be trying their hardest this season in order to be picked for the World Cup, and that will include Remy.

  • 77 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:43 PM

    colwell @ 74

    We don’t know what he was offered in January and what he is now getting but I’m certain that last season would not have been so fraught if he had been playing for us.

  • 78 niafron // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:43 PM

    Been to busy to take in the party atmosphere today, delighted we have signed Remy, hope we have an option to a. bin the deal if he is charged in Sept, and b. sign him permanently end of the season (assuming scenario a. goes well)? Just out of interest, has Tudor been on here today?

  • 89 Slank // Aug 6, 2013 at 4:57 PM

    toonarmydownsouth @ 83

    I don’t think it is equally effective.

    Remy plays on the right upfront whereas Ben Arfa can play anywhere such is his ability, that’s why I would give him a free role behind Remy and Cisse.

    Ben Arfa must be a nightmare to mark as he is so allusive and to have him hugging the touchline is such a waste of his talents IMHO.

    Not sure i agree mate
    I don’t think benny has look anywhere near effective when playing the number 10 role tbh

    When he’s on the wing he has time and space to run at his opponents look for the ball he wants to play
    For the number 10 role he is simply far to greedy on the ball, he doesn’t release it in time, tries to take on to many players and eventually loses the ball
    Think Marv has look far more impressive when played there than benny

  • 93 WorJordi // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:06 PM

    Just a thought here lads and lasses
    If Remy returns on bail and is charged, he has to go through the court system and providing they bail him ( no reason not to as not in London and living up in Newcastle) he pleads not guilty and it has to go to Crown Court. So by the time it goes through the court system and gets to trial it could be next March. I reckon MA took advice on this and knows he will have Remy for the major part of the season ( bar injury). So lets all smile and hope he keeps his PL form up with us this season. Oh and I reckon he is the next Thiery Henry only signed up for us on a permanent deal next season. See…. its not all doom and gloom
    HWTL

  • 94 Nufc-83 // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:08 PM

    Very excited at the prospect of Remy.

    Somebody posted they thought he would be number 9 as they have a feeling Cisse is leaving – What have you been smoking Cisse looks fitter and happier as i have ever seen him and the Wonga fiasco seems fully resolved.

    Also as the game tonight is not being shown anywhere on foreign TV there will be NO links and any claiming to have the game will be duds – sorry to disappoint.

  • 95 Pizzicato The Arizona Geordie // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:10 PM

    2 cents for Gomis: fire your agent. things could be simplified in this way if you really want to come.

  • 96 Nufc-83 // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:11 PM

    @91 fully agreed Benny looks so much more comfortable on the wing and Marv looks like he fits in the hole perfectly. For me Marv would be a top top player if he didn’t get lost in games so easily.

  • 97 Pizzicato The Arizona Geordie // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:12 PM

  • 98 JackButler // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:13 PM

    It has to be Lyon who are holding the Gomis deal up as they have gone public with every stage of the purposed transfer in the hope of someone else coming in with even more money as they are in serious financial trouble, but reports suggest that Olympique de Marseille have to first sell the egotistical slug Gignac in order to fund any move for Gomis and simply no one wants Gignac

  • 99 clinath@ed // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:14 PM

    and its not gomis who is paying it ! it should be ol from the transfer fee.

  • 103 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    Tbh it really doesn’t matter if its Lyon, his agents, gomis, the pope or anyone else holding the deal up, it’s still held up
    If its not happening, were paying other clubs sell on fees, agents fee’s, bonuses owed to gomis etc then surely it’s time to start looking elsewhere?

  • 105 89Norcal // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:20 PM

    Newcastle definitely got some great exposure in the states during the 5th place season, and it spilled over into last season. The top clubs are still king over here but Newcastle are the obvious choice for us non-bandwagon types

    I think if you went deeper into why that director said she likes NUFC, she would mention the passion at the club. For the most part unmatched by any other fans in the prem. We’re like the Oakland Raiders of the footballing world :)

  • 106 Mister Tuff // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:21 PM

    Worjordi @93 – I agree with you take of Remys’ potential trouble with the courts. If the worst scenario does happen and he is charged- he should get bail. It will take until the early part of next year -March onwards before the case appears for a trial at the Crown Court in London -so hopefully his appearances for the Toon should not be effected.

    Just thought id share my ideal team for next season.

    Krul
    Debuchy, colo, mym, santon
    Sissokho, anita
    Cabaye
    Hba cisse remy

    But no doubt pards will play

    Krul
    Debuchy taylor colo santon
    Hba cabaye tiote guti
    Cisse gouffran.

    Ive just realised that the depth in the squad is ok atm but imo we still need a cb coz willo is not good enough. Marveaux and gouffran are both class acts but my first team I wrote is the best available imo.

  • 108 JackButler // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:23 PM

    Now that we Remy at the club if I was Ashley I’d be contacting Lyon and wishing them all the luck for the future and withdrawing our offer for the lad, yes I still want him at the club but at the same time they are seriously taking the p**s out of us and I honestly think that if we were to pull out of the deal they would come back to us after finding a way to make if happen in hours. They need the money we need the player but we are now in the position to force their hand by walking away

    Debs – mym – collo – santon
    Cabaye – sissoko
    Gomis
    Hba – cisse – remy

    It can be either a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1

    And our second team

    Elliot
    Anita – willo – staylor – hairdara
    Tioti – bigi
    Goffy – marveaux – guti
    Vuckic

    Realistically we do have depth, and competition in the team. Two players each position.

  • 116 BandB // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:36 PM

    While I wonder at the still-unexplained compromise that was reached with Cisse over the Wonga issue, I don’t quite understand the argument that he may have to leave over finances.
    Isn’t the £2m for Remy is our upfront share of his wages (52 x £40ish)?
    Getting Harper, Perch and Simpson off the wage bill surely covers that?
    If Gomis signs, why isn’t Shola likely to leave, as was once widely expected? Gosling is just clinging on, and Obertan is looking very fringey. Would that not balance the ledger, replace some dead wood with a first team squad shorter on numbers, but with more punch off the bench?
    And with the Remy situation being what it is for now, do we not have to have both Cisse and another striker?
    I may be being naive, but a lot of the details of these deals isn’t exactly public knowledge.
    Any opinions?

    Well for me the cisse agreement is best left unexplained! Can’t see anyone coming off well really
    Also have no idea why we would have to or would sell him that seems highly unlikely

    We do very much seem to be getting the wage bill down by selling off the fringe players and think obertan should be head of that list!
    In turn hopefully we will have freed up enough wages to bring say another 2 bodies

  • 124 Ibizatoon // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:49 PM

    Looking at the Cisse situation cynically, it could be a case of playing along until sold so not to give a buying club extra negotiating power? Don’t buy it, but it’s possible

  • 125 BandB // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:50 PM

    It feels a bit weird, arguing that logical things appear to be being attempted. Losing Obertan and Gosling would also also lessen the threat of inexplicable selection decisions.

    What I would love to see this season is for NUFC to bang in the goals from every angle. Remy was the player I wanted since December and now to finally have him is really exciting. I can see him make and score plenty of goals for us and instantly become a fan favourite.

    I would love to see St James’ lit up again. I want the singing to come back, that incredible atmosphere when we were 5th and in the top 6. The hairs on the back on my neck stood to attention every time I heard ‘We’re in the top 6…we’re in the top 6, Jose Enrique we’re in the top 6!!!’ or ‘He scores when he wants..he scores when he wants, Papis Cisse he scores when he wants!!’ –luv it just luv it!

  • 129 lesh // Aug 6, 2013 at 5:57 PM

    DokToon…. Good for you and others Stateside supporting the Toon.

    Might I suggest an alternative to supporting underdogs as justification for doing so.

    As you say, it’s easy to follow the big spenders, winners as it’s almost like joining an very wide social group – being in the mainstream, the same as many others. However, I am one of those that rebels against the mainstream.

    I must say though that I was born in Newcastle and although not there now, that always has been my team.

    However, and back to it, by supporting Newcastle United, you and your fellow supporters outside of the UK are part of a very special group who support through the good times and the difficult ones, of which there have been one or two!

    You guys are not supporting an underdog, you are supporting Newcastle United and a member of a very close and supportive group.

    As Jimmy Carter said when he visited Newcastle upon Tyne, and in his finest Georgia accent……. ‘Haway the Lads,’.

    The welcoming crowd went wild at that.

    Would rather spend the £8m + we would have had to spend for Gomis on maybe a winger or a tidy link up player (CAM). We have Cisse, Remy and Gouffran who can all lead the line and the latter 2 being able to play wider, though the aren’t out an out wingers.

    If we do play HBA – Cisse – Remy as a front 3 we will be very narrow. Maybe a 4-3-1-2 would be good for our squad, use our full backs who are very good at bombing forward, to provide our width and use the CM’s to cover when they do.
    For this to work it relies on a lot of team work and communication and also a lot of work on the training ground. But we have the perfect team to do it.

    “Hopefully I can show the fans and the club and the French national team exactly what I am capable of, both with my goals and my team play, and I hope the fans wont boo me for going to QPR for more money.

    “I feel the Premier League is great for my wages. The opportunities for bigger wages are better in England than they are in France.”

    Ok, so people don’t think I’ve lost the plot, I wrote post 159 on my laptop, internet died, then went on my phone, saw the line up and then posted it, only for my normal internet to start working and make the original post. So yeah, not lost the plot :)

    Apparently it’s a 4-2-3-1 for you formation nuts.

    Skip, Cardozo is a class act, JK`S back up plan maybe?? I did not realise Cardozo was still at Benfica!

    Age wise no problem with Cardozo either, there fit as lops at 30 these days pro footballers, get three years out of the lad no problem.

    A lot of criticism of Jonas on this blog which is completely unnecessary in my book.

    Poor attitude should be criticised yes, but thats not something you could ever accuse of him.

    If he gets picked what do u expect him to say ‘no gaffer i’ll give it a miss’.

    His performances have been poor of late but he gives his all for the club and has done since he arrived and i think that deserves some respect.

    We should make a move for Kagawa and Hernandez. Think they’ll be persuaded to sign for a bigger club.

  • 169 Rooster // Aug 6, 2013 at 6:59 PM

    Jonas in again, no Campbell in the subs but still Sammy gets in, Strong team Gouffran 99.9 per cent every time for me over Jonas, strong team on paper and the team that will prob start first game of the season if no one else comes in.

    YES a friendly maybe, but as close as you like to the starting 11 v Man City

    I still cant understand how a player with no assists last season gets in time and time again, mr Pardew give your head a shake he offers nowt going forward Jonas.

    Im assuming tads is refering to the fact that Harry saggy chops said 2 million a year is what it would cost for him, which equates to around 40k a week or just under.

  • 171 Rooster // Aug 6, 2013 at 7:02 PM

    Swiss, with respect, I will get Mo Farrah to play in the team if you want someone to run up and down all game fall over at virtually every opportunity frustrate the hell out of our supporters and then offer next to nothing going forward, a wide man not as long as any of us have a hollow in our backsides.

  • 172 WayAyeCabaye // Aug 6, 2013 at 7:02 PM

    Jonas is the hardest working player on the team and he gets nothing but abuse on here! Baffled

  • 173 Rooster // Aug 6, 2013 at 7:07 PM

    Wayaye, hard work, so what , there is no product coming from the fella, NO ASSISTS IN 38 league games, enough is enough, run fall over free kick, stops the fluency of any of our play the way he plays, sorry but he winds me up five times as much as Shola ever has and that is saying something

    Yea I know he will make a goal tonight or score, so what!
