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?
