My Feelings Are Very Good About Newcastle


Loic Remy seems to have settled down well at Newcastle, and although we had to wait almost four weeks to see the French International in action, he did finally get on for the last 15 minutes on Saturday against Fulham, and as far as we could see he’s going to be a big player for Newcastle this seoasn, and of course the other very positive news is not only did we play well towards the end of the game, but a phenomenal late Ben Arfa goal got us all 3 points too.

Loic Remy – in action on Saturday – he looked good

This is what Loic said in the Evening Chronicle today:

“It was really good. I was happy to get on to the pitch and experience my first few minutes here.” “I really couldn’t wait to get out there.” “My feelings are very good about life at Newcastle.”

“I obviously wanted to try with Papiss, Yohan Cabaye and Yoan Gouffran to try to make some chances with passes in front of goal.” “I do think there are some things to work on.”

“But I think we’ve shown enough to start with that we can work well together.” “It’s been quite positive.”   “I’m not sure whether I can claim it as a pass to Hatem for the goal or not because he did a hell of a lot of work himself.”

“But it was a fantastic finish from him.”  “I’m just happy for the team and happy for the fans as well.”  “I think they needed something to smile about.”  “So it was positive.”

We must say that Loic comes over very well in his long interview today, and he got a great reception from the crowd on Saturday, and they seem to have taken to him already, even though he let us down in January.

But that’s all water under the Tyne Bridge now, and all that matters is that he becomes a great player and a great goalscorer for Newcastle.

But not too great, because then we would lose him next summer, to one of those bigger clubs that Alan Pardew keeps mentioning we cannot compete with. 🙁

Maybe that’s because we sell our best players to them?

    If Ashley is putting us in a position to settle his loan and be a cheaper purchase for buyers then fine. I would much rather he continue to make us financially viable but with moderate investment to keep us ticking along. Nearly all other clubs have invested heavily and we havent spent a penny. It does suggest a sale will be soon.

    We dont have a chance of finishing in the top 10. There are too many other better teams around, and those who werent as high as they wanted to be, Spuds, Lpool, Sund, Norwich, Soton, have all invested and bought well while we have sat on our cracks and done nothing.

    Not selling Cabaye is sposed to be a cause for celebration is it? What are we to do if HBA or Remy get a bad tackle and are out for months? We have 0 creativity aside from those 2, one of which will be going back to QPR at the end of the season as JFK in his infinate wisdom didnt put any sort of clause in the contract.

    Why havent we gone for Redmond as part of the Fergie loan, Sinclair/Moses on cheap loans, Ba/Ince/Gomis available for transfer? Bent was keen but many werent. He is a body, a fast pacy body to add something different. I am sick of being constantly disappointed. It goes with the territory I know. I dont think for one second we should be challenging for the title, I have been lucky enough to have been there for the KK years first time round. Wont see the likes again for a good long time.

    This is a crucial year in Ashleys reign.
    Its top 10 or bust.
    No excuses.
    And the man to lead his charge – Joe Kinnear

    Heard on radio Ince could be going to Spurs for 10 mill and they will loan him back to Blackpool for the season. We cannot it seems compete with that. Ashley wants his money back and will probably only spend some in January like last season if we are in trouble again.
    As Souness said teams that dont spend stand still.
    Ashley – NO AMBITION

    Those players you mention haven’t done much yet though, so can’t really say made the grade.

    Campbell is on loan so can’t say he has made it, he might, but might not.

    Sammy has been consistently poor but looked good at morcombe and did well against west ham but still a long way to go.

    Dummett is looking a good player, i accept that, but again he needs to establish himself long term before we can say he has made it.

    Things are looking up, compared with 5 years ago from the academy but we still have a long way to go….we need to start producing not just players with the potential to be average prem players but good or even great like the southamptons, arsenals, etc have.

    Magicbus…If that is the deal for Ince then I can understand us not being in it. £10m for a player who won’t play for us this season?

    Might turn out as good business, but we need options now imo.

    On thread…Remy sounding positive. Hopefully he brings some life back to out attack.

    Some good signs against Fulham. Pardew set the players up well for that final onslaught.

    Gutted that it seems we’re hoping for few injuries again…worked a treat last season!

    So given we are not signing anyone until January who are we going to sign in that window? Probably only Gomis. Unfortunately the last 15minutes against Fulham probably made Ashley decide we have a good enough squad to wait until then.

    Absolutely right they are not the finished article and some may never be. But I think 4 or 5 pushing for the first team is way better than anyone outside the top 3 or 4.
    Also, it’s just plain daft righting off Sammy at age 21.
    I’m not saying you have but others have.

    Not left behind? Last seasons finish says otherwise.

    Yes we are only 3 games into the season – but we have a fully fit squad at the minute AND its a long season:

    As we found last season, it was the injuries that killed us off, we didn’t have the strength and depth at all, other clubs have that.

    Yeh true, it is quite good but i would only say sammy and dummet are pushing…others have potential but currently not pushing, although might be next year.

    It’s not bad compared to most, probably average but i just want us to be better than average, rather have 5/6/7 young lads we bring through than signing the same amount of players from other clubs.

    Not expecting us to become barcelona with the kids in the next few years but looking at their model, or ajax and others then we should look long term to get as close as possible to that.

    Hopefully some unknown in Europe has a break out season and we snap them up in the next window. I think that is our only hope. The big names clearly don’t think Newcastle is good enough for them. Anyone thinking 15 mill for Carroll wasn’t such a bad option now?!

    Right now I would pay that for him in a heartbeat as with the addition of Remy we seem to have a squad that learnt how to cross in the last few minutes against Fulham!

    If you discount the top 8 then we finished a whopping 5 points of Swansea in 9th and they didn’t have EL to contend with. We were 9 points of 8th which I think is easily attainable this season. I think we’d all agree we don’t have to do much to approve on last season 😉

    No movement in or out today.

    Not a great window – Remy is a good signing even if it is only a loan, but with his court hearing coming up thats no bad thing.

    Would have liked more signings, at least one striker so we’re not relying on Shola, but we’ve not lost anyone and given we finished just out of the bottom three I thought we may have been vulnerable to losing Cabaye, Krul or HBA.

    Not a great window by any means, in fact its terribly disappointing, but it could be worse.

    Remy is only saying the things that he thinks we want to hear. Nobody at this club from owner to DOF to manager to some of the players, REALLY give a damn about the supporters of this fabulous club.
    We are mugs being taken continually for a ride.
    When are we going to get an owner who respects his paying public and genuinely wants to take this club forward?
    I’d suggest never until we rid ourselves of Ashley by taking every imaginable opportunity. Concerted local press campaign, constant pressure on the local City Council, letters to the media, SENSIBLE banners at the match asking pertinent questions like “Where is our money going Ashley?”.We can’t just go on for ever just lying down to be kicked by this guy. He makes no investment yet our debt to him (sale value of the club) never goes down.
    When will the fans actually say enough is enough and start to do something about it?

    Enquiry for Ince? That means squat.

    This morning I have enquired about travelling on the local bus, seconds before quickly deciding that the bus is not for me, despite the bus driver confirming that the bus would take me closer to where I want to be. By getting off the bus before i committed to buying a ticket I cleverly tricked myself into thinking that I was indeed going to save myself a long, hard walk into town but then checking my pockets I realised I didn’t want to pay the fare as I think I can get there anyway, without the bus and without paying.
