Alan Pardew held his news conference this afternoon in front of the local Newcastle reporters, and it lasted around ten minutes, and he talked about lots of different things.
Loic Remy – big player for Newcastle so far
Alan was invariably asked about Loic Remy, who has made a great start to the season with five goals in just five appearances for the side, and has looked a terrific all round player in the black and white stripes.
This is what Alan said about the French International striker:
“He’s been called back into the French squad so he’s had a taste of that and it’s been a great start to the season for him.”
“That’s been because of his strong performances not just his goals but his all round performances for us.” “He’s been a big player for us so far this season.
Alan was also asked about signing Remy permanently, but the manager said that was a question for later.
The Newcastle manager also talked about Colo’s groin injury, but said there was no reason Newcastle couldn’t cope in Colo’s absence, although he did say the side would need to defend a lot better than we did in April when we were annihilated 6-0 by the Reds.
How Newcastle play defensively on Saturday will decide whether or not we can get anything out of this game, but it’s going to be very tough with Liverpool the favorites to win the game.
