One of the big positives in Newcastle’s season so far, is the form and goals of French International striker Loic Remy, and since he started playing for Newcastle four games ago, he looks the part and has movement and speed up front, and he can put the ball into the back of the net, as he’s already done three times for Newcastle.
Loic Remy – after scoring against Hull
And from his comments in his interviews he already seems to love life at Newcastle, and he’s already a big fan favorite, who Alan Pardew has said is also very popular in the dressing room.
Didier Deschamps has quickly recalled Remy to the France squad for the upcoming games against Australia in a friendly and Finland in a World Cup qualifying game, and he’s one of four Newcastle players named in the squad.
Yohan Cabaye was also quickly recalled and Debuchy and Sissoko are also retained in the squad.
This is what the France manager told L’Equipe about the Newcastle striker:
“Loic has found competition, and he is in a good phase””He is effective.”
“He can also play several positions and fully use the depth and quality all on his own. He gives us the opportunity to have different attacking options.
“Some will talk about Kevin Gameiro, others Emmanuel Riviere, and there are also Anthony Modeste, Kevin Berigaud.”
“But these are all auxiliary attackers compared to Karim Benzema and Olivier Giroud. Loic is better when compared to those guys.”
Remy has made four Premier League appearances with three goals and two assists and he’s made a huge difference at Newcastle, and we now look like we can start scoring a lot of goals.
Of course Loic is only on loan right now, but after Harry Redknapp’s comments a few days ago they will not stand in the way of a permanent move to Newcastle, we hope Joe Kinnear can sign him on a permanent basis in early January – and Loic would be a great signing for us.
There;s no doubt that Remy is the big positive for Newcastle so far this season.
