Here’s Proof That Newcastle Can Do Something Right


On a day when Newcastle may prove they are completely inept and lack ambition of any kind to build a great side again, there’s some good news, and it’s from our only signing this summer – Loic Remy- and he talks positively about Newcastle United and its fans.

Loic Remy – I need to repay Newcastle

Of course the history is that Loic let us down big time when he elected to go to QPR instead of Newcastle, and it’s hard to think we would have struggled so much last season if   Remy had replaced Demba Ba, who left in early January.

But opinions on Tyneside mellowed a little, and by the time the summer arrived fans thought he was worth £8M.

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

Loading ... Loading ...

Newcastle signed him on a one year loan deal,  as a a precaution because he still has a rape charge to answer later this year.

This is what Remy said in the Evening Chronicle today:

“I am really happy and grateful to this club for the fact that even though I didn’t come here first – they came back for me.” “They have shown a lot of interest in me.”

“I really need to repay them for that by going out there and doing my very best on the pitch. I need to repay them by doing well on this loan. We’ll see what happens after that but for now I am focused on doing as well as I can for Newcastle.”

“I’m very happy.” “It’s not by chance that I chose to come to Newcastle.” “This is a club with a big history and a club in the Premier League that has a fantastic heritage.”

“I am not disappointed in any way to be here – I am actually delighted.” “I want to leave my own personal mark on this club.” “I’m going to go out there, have a great season and score as many goals as I can.”

That sounds very good to us, and it begs the question what was Loic thinking when at the last moment he joined QPR?

The answer is probably money.

But we hope Loic has a great season, and he looked classy on Saturday – but then if we want to sign him at the end of the season, or even before that, let’s hope he doesn’t do the same thing and join another club.

But it’s always nice to hear our players talk well of the club and Newcastle, especially in difficult times like these.

    @Toon73: Snort crack? That’s a good way to hurt yourself… don’t tell Kinnear that, mind.

    Glad to hear Campbell might be going on loan to St Mirren. Just what he needs after it didn’t work out at Carlisle.

    After last season’s relegation battles all NUFC needed was a DOF spending times in BARs about 500 miles away.

    I think Crystal Palace could be the busiest Premier League team today, Mariappa, Bannan on the way – but another four or five could follow.

    Shearer

    I would take him. There are better fowards, but also much worse fowards. He is the type of foward we need at the moment….. I.E. one with 2 legs 😀

    Markaccus,
    Surely that is the issue though, unless you can see in the future, or have inside knowledge of police investigations it has to be a no.

    But the cruel reality is we are going to end up with no permanent signing and as always the reason is the price weren’t right.
    Ashley like his name is such a a*s

    signing bendtner would be a car crash in the making…..maybe we can add his mate cattermole as well…
    if its true (and im pretty sure it is) it would be the most stupid signing….he definitely would need a long bath first

    Lilongwe

    Yeah but im sure the question means at the end of the season rather than this summer (which ended yesterday) so by then we will know if hes in or out of jail.

    So Cabaye flew out to Marseille after we beat Fulham…. Monaco were playing there… 2+2=5?

    Don’t worry though, The Chron understands that if Cabaye leaves we have a Plan B ready to put into action. At least that should speed up our transfer dealings by completely skipping having a plan A.

    Are we downing bendtner just because he was loaned to the makems? He is a better player than carlton cole but if we cant have ex makems in any capacity i suppose we should see if marlon harewood is available…. he is in a similar mould to cole and probably will be cheaper

    North East wise Sunderland will be doing at least two, Boro trying – Newcastle probably nothing at all – in or out.

    Anyone think the financial fair play has actually worked in the favour of for example PSG who took no notice? They have bought a team of superstars when most other teams have made ends meet.
