Alan Pardew has admitted today that Loic Remy’s presence in the Newcastle squad is having a huge positive impact, and the 26 year-old 18 times capped French International striker is also having a big impact in the dressing room at the club.
Loic Remy – in action against Aston Villa
There is now some competition up front with the arrival of Loic at the club, and it’s the unfortunate Yoan Gouffran who has missed out so far, but the 27 year-old Frenchman has scored two goals coming off the bench already this season, and Yoan looks to be in great form at the moment, and scored a wonderful individual goal on Wednesday night against Leeds.
And Cisse finally scored against Leeds in his 11th game without a goal, and that should certainly help the man’s confidence, because we need to see more goals from Papiss this season, if we are going to do well.
Alan Pardew has talked today about Loic Remy and his fine performance against Hull:
“It’s obvious we needed that. I think his performance against Hull City was important for the group.” “They needed to see that he is a player who is going to score goals. He was very unlucky not to get a hat-trick.”
Well Loic somehow missed an open goal from just one yard out when he hit the ball with his right foot and amazingly shot wide, and that would have given him his hat-trick and Newcastle a point, but it wasn’t to be.
Loic is also a big hit in the dressing room, and he is already popular with the players – now we need to sign this man in January, if that’s at all possible.
It’s over to you Joe Kinnear.
