Striker Unlikely To Sign For Newcastle – Poll

9:15 am, Wednesday, October 16th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 7 Comments

We suppose it’s not too surprising that there are stories seemingly every day over whether Loic Remy will sign for Newcastle in January, and make the deal permanent and his transfer fee is low at just £8M.

And since Newcastle coughed up £2M for his season long loan deal, it will take just another £6M from Newcastle to make the QPR player a permanent signing on Tyneside.

But we don’t think that will happen in January, and Loic has been interviewed again on the possibility and this is what the 26 year-old said this time:

“For the moment the decision to stay beyond my loan period is not in my head – it is a good question but we have time to decide.”

Tottenham are said to be interested, and we have an inkling that Arsenal could also come after him – maybe in January, and we suppose if Newcastle make a bid in January then other clubs can too – but we’re not sure the exact terms of the loan agreement – because we want him at least for the full season.

We’d love for Remy to sign for us in January, but there are more ambitious clubs in England than Newcastle these days, and at least six clubs (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, LIverpool and Tottenham) who are more ambitious and bigger clubs than Newcastle are right now – and that’s the basis of our concern that he will once again not commit to Newcastle.

Two of those clubs are said to be interested in Remy, and the French striker will know that.

In an attempt to gauge the confidence of Newcastle fans on whether he will sign for us – here’s a poll – and it’s not asking should we sign him – that poll would probably be close to 100% of fans wanting to sign him.

This poll is asking will we be successful in eventually signing him either in January or next summer – will signing him become a reality before next season starts is another way to put it.

Will Newcastle Be Successful In Signing Remy In January Or Next Summer?

    Taylor getting more votes than anyone is desperate times. Then again, really liked TDS’ post, so i’ll re-post. Excellent summary!

    “Sorry…I forgot Krul isn’t on top form, Elliott isn’t good enough, Colo is past it, MYM isn’t good enough, Saylor is a liability, Willo is championship level, Santon and Debuchy can’t defend, Haidara s injured, Dummett is inexperienced, Cabaye wants to leave, Tiote is rubbish, Pardew has no faith in Anita, Sissoko has been found out, Jonas is past it, Ben Arfa is lazy, Obertan is crap, Marv is inconsistent, Shola is useless, Remy isn’t even our player, Cisse can’t score, Sammy is unproven…

    Well…at least we have Goofy.”

    And, Tiote bashers, take note of previous article… Imagine him, against us, bullying poor little Cabs-Anita off the ball :)

    On Tiote and other ‘get rid’ candidates, remember AP’s wise words:

    Pardew said on Routledge’s move:
    “Well I think there’s opportunities for players that come along and you have to weigh it up.
    “I mean, was Wayne gonna be a long term first team player for us? and I don’t think he was.”
    “QPR offered him that position, and I felt that is best for him and best for the club that we took that opportunity.
    “You know, when you bring players in I think it’s important that they affect your first team.
    “There are occasions, and there will be, when I bring in a player to full up the squad [sic], so to speak.
    “But you know, I just felt that the Wayne one was a deal that was right for him, more importantly, and right for us.
    “Because You have to sort of move on players to grow, and, you know, we have to get better than Wayne and that’s what we’re gonna aim to do.”

    Ed,
    Fix your poll, it could be read wrongly: Will we get Remy in January, or next summer, which of the two? The answer yes or no doesn’t fit to the question. Will NUFC win or lose VS Liverpool? Yes :)

    If you were Remy who would you pick out of going to play for Villas Boas or Wenger who will develop you no end or stay with Pardew. Hmmm…

    Amazing how good our players look playing for other teams and other managers but absolutely pants for us. Coincidence I don’t thinks so.

    This blog is becoming to much like facebook for my liking, and to many unrelated topics from other threads.

    As you say Rotonda. I don’t blame Remy for wanting another club after this loan period. I don’t blame Cabaye for wanting to leave either.

    Playing for Pardew is like selling timeshares in Fuengirola with a master degree from Harvard. You know you could do better with you life…

    Did they not learn their lesson the 1st time around with Remy? the option for him to walk away from the loan deal shud not have been an option it shud have been put on paper in a contract that if all went well during the loan it would just be a formality that hed sign on permanetly for the 6million taking into account he is up on rape but for f’s sake JFK shud have tied that one up better we can all see him been taken by a bigger club and nufc been left with their finger in mouth wondering how did that happen?
