Loic Remy has made a good start to his career at Newcastle United, and he came on for the last 15 minutes against Fulham, and lasted 63 minutes on Saturday at Villa Park, and Newcastle won both games.
Loic Remy – in action against Fulham
Loic is still getting up to speed of course, even though he has looked good in his two appearances so far for Newcastle, but he says he needs more games to get sharp, and he explained his situation to Sky Sports today:
“I did not do the pre-season so it was important to get fit quickly to help the team.” “I worked hard during the international break but I still need two or three games to be completely fit.”
“I felt very good about my run, about everything, but I need more games.” “We are confident now. It was important to win, because if we can have a lot of games like this and win more and more games, it will be good for the future.”
“We have a good game at home next week, and if we keep going we have the quality in the team to do very well this season.”
Yohan Cabaye played the whole game on Saturday, and got an ovation from the travelling Magpie fans at the end of the game, and he then apologized to the fans yesterday for refusing to play in the first two league games, so we need to put that behind us now – he made a mistake but hopefully that will never happen again.
Loic knows Yohan well from playing for the French side, and he had this to say about Cabaye:
“Yohan is a good professional, so it was not a problem for him. He was not affected by what happened.”
“That is in the past and he will look to the future. He is staying here, he knows he is staying here, so that will not be a problem at all.”
That’s good backing from Loic for his pal, and next up for Newcastle are Hull City on Saturday, and they beat us in this game five years ago in our relegation season, so we need to win this one – and if we can do that, then that’s 10 points from the first five games, and that’s not too bad at all.
