This Newcastle Player Gives Us Hope Of A Bright Future

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.

    The trouble is it’s blatantly obvious throwing new players at Pardew isn’t the answer.

    Under Pardew all these new players are losing market value and are becoming depreciating assets with their their increasingly demotivated performances all the time.

    If I couldn’t inspire a team with half the current French national side I would be very worried. Give Remy time and he’ll go backwards along with Sissoko, M’Biwa Cabaye and Debuchy.

    We need someone who’s going to come in and put smiles on these player’s faces and let them play. So many good managers out there like Rodgers, Laudrup, Villas Boas, Pochettino, Martinez who could transform this team.

    Ash has to weigh up paying off Pardew against the players becoming non-profitable resales and losing a drinking buddy. Mind you Llambias has walked.

    Very interesting that the club officially denied any meeting between Ashley and Pardew at Goodison Park after the game. It was definitely an official denial in an official club statement. And now Pardew, in his pre-match interview, tells the truth. He had a meeting at Goodison Park after the Everton game with both Ashley and Kinnear. I wonder if he offered his resignation, as one of the papers said he did? When fans wonder why some of us have a low opinion of our owner, I would ask them to reflect on little incidents like this. If they can’t tell the truth about whether or not a meeting took place, they won’t be able to tell the truth about whether we are trying to win a Cup, will they?

    my big problem with pardew is this very thing he is talking about,,
    as mentioned above, pardew does not know how to get a team playing football, and nearly all of our wins come from individual player skill, not a team performance,
    normally no support for forwards , just long balls into the box,
    if he happens to go in front first, we tend to try and shut up shop, even if we score in the first 15 mins,
    chasing a game , he has no clue how to change the shape, makes the same changes always takes the wrong player off.
    i mentioned this the other day
    after 6 game last season, we were better of than this one in every way, and he says he has a better team ,

    not looking good

    Catchy, do yo actually watch the games ? It`s nonsense to say we have been playing a long ball game this season.

    We’ve got it on the deck more but there is still very little pass and move, certainly the move part

    living in the midlands the only game I have seen this season was Villa away. Now Villa insist they had an off day but for me it was the best I have seen us play for many a game. The midfield so stifled Villa they simply could not get out of their half for long periods, and the front three were full of movement.Defensively we look adrift at set plays into the box – krul is definitely lacking in the courage stakes coming for crosses, probably due to his shoulder injury last year, but both Mbiya and Collo do not want to put their heads in where it hurts. Step up Williamson – always an intelligent defender if lacking speed, and he does what is needed – win it, clear it, hopefully to one of ours.

    Playing two dm’s who hold their positions, means we have six outfield players with mainly defensive duties.
    If the fb’s can’t get forward we’re screwed as an attacking force.
    Sissoko must play with Anita and be encouraged to run with the ball.
    We need to be a threat down both wings and through the middle. The wingers must stop cutting inside all the time.
    Otherwise we’re too easy to defend against.
