Another Urgent Call To Sign Up Loic Remy At Newcastle


Newcastle fans would love to have the club sign up Loic Remy, who not only is looking like a top class player for Newcastle, but he also seems to like things at Newcastle, and has only very good things to say about Newcastle United while he is on International duty for France during the International break.

He has called Newcastle a great club – so yes – wait for it – he’s also a very intelligent lad. 😀

And today Cheick Tiote, who is in Abidjan with the Ivory Coast squad as they prepare for the first leg of a vital two game World Cup qualifying playoff, and the Ivorian has today called on the Newcastle United board to sign the club’s on loan striker.

Remy has made an instant impact at St James’ Park with five goals in four games and The Journal understands the club are now considering trying to broker a permanent deal in January to avoid any other Premier League clubs trying to tempt him away at the end of the season.

This is what Cheick said today in the local press:

“Loic is very important for us. He’s a great player and he scored two fantastic goals.” “I hope he will continue to score because we need him and we need his goals.”

They are so important for us and at Cardiff they were the difference between winning and losing.” “He’s going to be important for us this season and if he continues to score and play like he did we will be able to finish in the top ten.”

“I hope the chairman will buy him. You never know, but he’s already shown how important he is for us and it would be a big loss if he didn’t sign at the end of the season.”

Loic has not only been an instant hit with Newcastle fans – who wouldn’t be with five goals in his five games for the club – but he is also already very popular in the dressing room.

And he has also talked in complimentary terms about the Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, and says he thinks the Newcastle manager can make him into a much better player.

We have to hope that’s a hint that he wants to stay at Newcastle long-term.

What do you think?

    In respect of season 2012-13 Supporters of Newcastle were arrested more times for football related offences than those of any other club in the country. ( Source The Guardian).

    Beware of Unintended consequences that could frighten off any prospective buyer of OUR club.

    However we are one of the most heavily supported teams in England and has a very loyal fanbase so I doubt that it would put any buyer off.

    Totally off topic, but have a look at this

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2451738/Away-Fans-Fund-What-Premier-League-clubs-spending-200k-on.html

    it appears as if we are only prepared to help the disabled which represents the tiniest % of the Newcastle fans, hopefully the club will be embarrassed by the actions of other clubs and will bring in further deals to aid all of the Newcastle fans and not just the smallest % of them.

    The Time4Change March – No mission statement beyond, it’s claimed that this is to promote what is good about NUFC and the city to any prospective buyer of OUR CLUB.

    Not a hope in hell of signing Remy until he is cleared of his rape charge, after that if he gets off then I do believe we will sign him in the summer.

    I would hope we would sign him (And hopefully, as Ed says, we have already negotiated a fee) as soon as it is apparent that he won’t be jailed. He has proved his worth as a player already. I believe with him next season, and a few other tweaks in the form of a couple of defensive players, and Adam Lallana, then we will be set for a very good season indeed. I am also assuming we have a competent manager by then too.

    “He making Club stable just like Arsenal have done over past 10years .. Only we be engaging the dizzy heights in less the time its taken them.”

    I think you will find that Arsenal started their thing longer than ten years ago, they started it in 96. By 98, they had won a league / cup double. Your prediction of us doing it in less time than them may have missed the boat a bit.
