Loic Remy looked very good for Newcastle yesterday, and he scored his first two goals for the side, and he’s our best Newcastle player with 64% of the vote, with Vurnon Anita in second place with 24% of the vote.
Loic Remy – in action yesterday
And Loic did have a chance in added time, and it was much easier than the two efforts he hit the back of the net with, but he somehow put the ball wide of the goal from about five yards out with his right foot.
And Remy talked about how he wants to score lots of goals for Newcastle:
“I work for that.” “I think I can score a lot of goals here for the fans, for the club and for me.” “I scored two goals, but I’m not finished yet. I can score a lot of goals here.”
“I try to do my best in every game. I scored two goals, but it wasn’t enough, so I will try next game to work hard again and hopefully we can win.”
“I work hard on the training ground to be good in front of the goal, but I am very frustrated because I missed the last one in the second half.”
“I wanted to kick the ball with my right foot, but the right choice would have been to kick with my left foot, I think.”
Loic Remy looked a natural goalscorer yesterday, and he provides both movement and speed to the Newcastle attack, and he’s probably right that he can score a lot of goals for Newcastle this season – from either one of the wings or in the center – and we hope so.
It was a game yesterday that Newcastle should have won, if our defense had been anywhere near their usual form, but you cannot give three poor goals away at home and expect to win the game.
Hopefully that will be a lesson this team learns quickly, because we seem to have a lot of skill in the side, and could still do well this season – so it’s certainly not a time to react.
But it was a huge disappointment not to be able to get all 3 points yesterday, against a team we should have been able to beat at home.
Hopefully we can get back on form and get a win against Leeds United at home in the Capital Cup on Wednesday night.
