French striker Loic Remy is getting some really great press coverage at the moment, and of course he deserves it, after playing so well for Newcastle this season so far.
Loic Remy slots the ball home on Sunday
But there’s a problem with that as far as Newcastle are concerned, because the chances of our signing him permanently next summer, is inversely proportional to how well he plays for us.
So in short, the better he plays and the more goals he scores this season, the less chance we will have of signing him on a permanent basis.
And there’s already some of Europe’s biggest clubs monitoring his progress, and are likely to bid for the player next summer when his loan deal is up at Newcastle.
And it makes it even worse that we failed to sign him in January, when he went to QPR for bigger money, because if we had signed him then, he would have been our player now, and it would have been unlikely we would have been so close to relegation last season.
Remy has conducted himself very professionally at Newcastle, and seems to like it playing for the club and its passionate supporters, and he also is appreciative of manager Alan Pardew, who is making him a better striker and that Loic works hard in training.
And who knows, maybe with Newcastle and their fans being so good to him since he did the dirty on us in January, maybe he will realize which side his bread is buttered on (so to speak), and sign permanently for us in January (preferably), or in the summer.
If Loic Remy does that – he can certainly have a great career at Newcastle United, and we’ll all be very happy.
Why does that Turtles song of the late 1960s – Happy Together – suddenly come to mind? 😀
