At The End Of The Season, I Am Still A QPR Player

Newcastle fans who had hoped that Loic Remy would sign  a permanent deal at Newcastle in January, may be disappointed by some of his comments in the Telegraph today, as he seems to have no wish to sign on at Newcastle in January, and says he will still be a QPR player at the end of the season.

Newcastle United's Loic Remy scored in the Premier League against Hull City at St James' Park

Loic Remy – 5 goals already for Newcastle

Loic has already essentially turned down Newcastle once, when he surprisingly signed with QPR in January, when they were rock bottom of the league when he signed, and stayed there until the end of the season and were relegated..

But Remy has been great for Newcastle so far this season, with five goals in just six appearances for the Tyneside club.

This is what the Frenchman had to say today:

“The question has probably not come at the right time,” “That question will have its time to be asked. The most important thing for me at the moment is playing well here at Newcastle, putting in great performances and doing well for this team.”

“Then, hopefully, trying to get a more regular position in the French squad, which is a focus for me as well.” “Afterwards, at the end of the season, I am still a QPR player.”

“I am just on loan, but we will then look at that question. I will look at whatever offers come in – whether that be from Newcastle or whether that be from QPR. Then I’ll consider what is best for me and what is best for my future career.”

It would cost Newcastle only around £8m to sign Remy, and that would be an excellent buy for the club, but that’s also why other big clubs will no doubt be interested in him this summer. 🙁

What do you think?

    Where is everybody – the eve of a derby game -and nobody at all is commenting on the game or other issues. Toon supporters must have well a truly had their life blood drawn from them -they’ve been Pardewed.
    Not even the usual spouters of fawning drivel have appeared – these folk are known as the Blind Faith Brigade or the Legion of Dishonour (they behave like lemmings) have not appeared. I expected they would not appear earlier on -after tea time – as they would be taking their guide dogs for their final days walk.Sad times.
    Anyway -Owen is clearly getting a dig in at the Toon as he is probably aware of what folk have said about his efforts when he played for us -or lack of effort.

    Dont get excited this is a flying visit before bed. Agree on owen he cant resist a dig but the media always ask him to try and provoke a contentious comment so shouldnt really judge him too harshly for that.

    Remy will go back if qpr get prkmoted which will happen. He has already proved hes all about the money as sad as that is. Really hope people dont start to idolise him as he is sure to shaft us. Night all zzzzzzzz

    Ask yourself a simple question. If you had the oportunity to work for some of the biggest outfits in your field (ANY field) would you – A) sign for an outfit whos stated ambition was to achieve nothing but stability; Not interested in fighting for the Champions spot or top 5 or 6. Only objective is not to be relegated? Assured Mediocrity.
    – B) sign nothing at all, knowing that a number of outfits were interested that would pay you just as much, if not more than you were earning now. However these clubs had AMBITION – they truly wanted to win things, they wanted to become winners, collect trophy’s, hoped to play in Europe on a regular basis.

    Why on earth would an ambitious player sign for NUFC? This is what caused the Cabaye problem; he WANTED to leave to win things, the Arse could give him success we just DO NOT want to be involved in. I suggest it will become worse this next summer as more of our better players realise we have ZERO ambition to be the best we can possibly be. It just isnt what the Illustrious Owner wants.

    Its a no brainer. We either change our stated objectives or the good players will soon find alternative employers who have ambition to WIN.

    It was wonderful to see Krul last off last game salute fans and get good chants. Lets hope the same this happens this afternoon.

    Pardew is managing with the wind at the minute, in that our vast array of international players are trying to make sure they are in their world cup squad.

    Hope they can use that incentive even more in the game tomorrow.

    If someone offers him a better deal and he takes it, is that shafting us?

    I don’t think so. Good luck to the bloke, but I don’t want to see us throwing money at him either. Offer him a fair and plain deal, take it or leave it and then accept his decision in good grace either way.

    Graeme,totally agree with everything you say,it’s a mystery to me how they have signed the decent players they have signed.

    That’s exactly what I was saying that summer we only bought Anita.

    And I’m also banking on Remy to hold out for a stronger club to buy him. I think while he’s doing great for us in the end he is only worried about himself.

    Morning lads!

    Have to agree with the sentiment that Remy is all about the money – he always has been!

    It is his provocative!

    I still think the future of Remy is in our hands since his National carree is the second most dear to him. If he wants to go to the WC he has to play regularly and he is on loan here for the season.

    If he doesn’t play he won’t go to Brazil 😉 that should just be clear to him indirectly!

    We are not here for his benifit!

    Graeme…I agree with your take on the problem we are facing at Newcastle with the way it is being run, but I still don’t think it is that simple!

    …it is not a case. of either A or B as you put it, cause players like Remy is only interested in two things: money and his national career. With money being the most important factor he would have no problem going to Chelsea or Man Utd and sit on their bench if the money was that good.

    That said I still think we hold the best cards it is just a matter of JFK knows how to play them 😉

    Good morning Mr Tuff @1. Sorry I’m late for parade

    I was relieved to see that I was not the only one not available to spout the drivel that provides you with some of the entertainment, amusement and more often, the frustration you referred to. it would appear that some did arrive to help relieve your boredom.

    Perhaps Ed could arrange for some of the blog police to help posters to be available on time?

    Jesper @13.

    Your post was carrying some credibility until you said that you still think we hold the best cards it is just a matter of JFK knows how to play them.

    Genius Joe couldn’t explain the rules of Snap let alone play the game..

    Sad to say that if he’s involved in signing Reme for us, then forget it!

    lesh…yeah having JFK doing deals for us doesn’t sound reassuring I know 😉

    …but if those in charge at NUFC knows the position we are in and the powers we hold I am really not that concerned about Remy 🙂

    He wants to go to the WC and we want to sign him up! Like I said we are not here for the benefit of Mr. Remy!

    tads…a hunch! Why he went to OM and why he stayed so long there when was getting enough games. The reason he wanted to come to the PL!
