Any Swap Deal For Loic Remy Is Irrelevant


There was news a few days ago coming from Sports Direct News, that Newcastle would be willing to do a part exchange for Loic Remy in the summer, with the bait being Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse.

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Newcastle United v Norwich City - St James' Park

Loic Remy scoring yesterday

But unless Papiss Cisse improves his goal-scoring form, then it wouldn’t necessarily be a good deal for QPR, and in any case QPR would need to be back in the Premier League, and there’s still a long way to go in the Championship season of 46 games.

But this kind of news, even if it’s true, doesn’t make much sense, because the problem is not how to pay for Remy, be it either a player exchange deal or a straight cash deal.

The difficulty Newcastle have is to convince Loic Remy that Newcastle is a good forward looking club for him to move to full-time in January, or in the summer.

That could be difficult for Newcastle to accomplish, because there will be some big clubs after Loic next summer, and that’s Newcastle’s problem, since we can no longer offer players the chance to play regularly in Europe.

It will be interesting to know if there is a set price that Newcastle can buy Remy for in his loan contract – once his loan deal is complete – and usually they are  included in these types of loan deals.

But it would be better for QPR if Remy turns down Newcastle, because then QPR could ask for a much higher transfer fee than the reported £8M Newcastle could get him for.

But whether it’s a player exchange deal or not – is irrelevant.

What do you think?

    I can’t see remy coming.

    I think he chose QPR not for money but because it benefited him. He got guaranteed a game there, wasn’t definitely going to get one with us (95% likely though) and they gave him a release clause so he can strut his stuff, score loads and they move to the likes of spurs/arsenal or even higher to push as high as he can get.

    with us remy would be tied to a long deal and ashley won’t sell cheap so might not get his move to a ‘bigger’ club

    that’s my issue with refs and why i want their mic to be played on TV.

    Could then see if they have given the foul for a daft reason then it’s accountable and they can’t look at replays after before submitting their report and say i gave the foul for ‘x’ when at the time they gave it for ‘y’.

    it will never be perfect as they are human, but this would make them accountable and therefore have to be better.

    No chance getting Remy IMO 🙁 .

    With the world cup coming he wants to be playing for a bigger club so he gets more recognition as the French aren’t the strongest up front and he is one of three (Giroud,Remy,Benzema) that will be the main man .

    Notice how Giroud & Benzema are playing for CL teams and Remy’s best chance with us is a top 10 finish .

    If he does leave we should go back in for Ba . Some people forget he got 16 goals for us in half a season yet can’t get on the bench for Chelsea.

    good points, i’m concerned about santon mainly which is why i think he warrants dropping ahead of coloccini.

    I don’t think it was a dive, i just think although the defender was behind the tackled came round the side, not through the back of the player. Then contact was made firstly with the ball, then the player after, no excessive force/danger.

    So for me a good tackle, risky but well timed.

    You are right though that half the time that will be given as a foul which shows little consistency with refs.

    most players want to do as well as they can so they can move to the biggest and the best. there’s nothing really wrong with that. remember they’re not all shearers or geordies.

    If Remy was on loan with any other club bar the top four there would be no certainty he would sign for them either.

    Suarez wanted to leave Lpool because they aren’t g’teed Champs Lge.

    If Remy was with Lpool, Everton or even Spurs he might still leave them for ManU, City, Chelsea or Arsenal if he scored 20+ goals.

    We are going over the top – as usual – in pulling NUFC down over Remy.

    Transfer- I agree that the referee should be held accountable and we should revert to post match questioning. Cisse changed the habit of a lifetime and was not offside – what happened to when level always give the advantage to the attacker!

    we are but they are seen as a club showing more ambition and expected to finished above us by the end of the season ,chalenge for the league or champs league at least from most pundits.

    I think we are as far as remy will get as he is like ba for me, a good player and goal scorer just not the ‘big name’ or true world class that the very top clubs like to have in the side for whater reason.

    ohshola

    I’m more worried about colo than santon, and santon wants to be here so we need to get used to colo not playing regularly i feel, let other build a partnership.

    yeh, apparently the refs head boss said they had the option if they wanted, but sky always have an agenda to entertain so the questions would be useless.

    I’d much prefer them on a mic so we here them say, red 25 you have fouled blue 9, you did x, y, z and this warrants a yellow card.

    yeh, remy is doing what any ambitious player does, the best for himself….why tie down to a club when you can go on loan and assess your options at the end of the season.

    I’m sorry but Mbiwa is not only colo’s long term replacement but he’s also formed a great CB pairing with willo, where the hell is the sense in moving him to LB when we have 3 actual LB’s at the club?

    And sorry but colo was shocking yesterday, it’s got nothing to do with him wanting a move, we’ve all known he wants out since the summer, he was taken out of the game time and time again yesterday and most importantly had zero chemistry with the team, he didn’t listen when willo was signaling him to come and clear and the team simply ignored him when we had possession

    as much as i have liked colo in the past you are right i feel.

    think he isn’t the player he was and now he wants a move that extra spark from him has gone

    think he should lose the captaincy and shola should have it, with tiote his deputy

    If you take Spurs, they clearly are a bunch of individuals that have yet to settle into a team. Sandra is a refined Tiote with terrific technical skills.

    What are we going to do about HBA ? Strongly rumoured he’s going to be given a run in December which will determine whether we look to keep him or if a good offer is received he departs. He looked lost in his brief cameo slot and Is still slowing the momentum of our attacking play.

    what rumour? why would we bring him in when we play better as a team without him. just curious.

    I think we sell him, the lad has never been consistent at any club and when he stops being a regular usually a lot of trouble starts.

    I just don’t think he has the work rate to play for us, as much as i like him i think we could do better

    I think colo has been a great captain, but his heads not in it and I really can’t see the point in keeping him around tbh

    On Benny I agree I think he’ll be sold in the summer, he’ll be in the last year of his contract and tbh hasn’t really progressed in his time here, still waiting to see the potential turn to something more

    Summer is going to be very interesting imo, colo off, remy’s loan over, shola out of contract, very possible cabs could be off, HBA could be off due to contract

    As soon as City sort their away form out they Will be a major force .

    Aguero looking brilliant this season as well and is in my top 3 strikers in the league :

    1. Suarez
    2. Van Persie
    3. Aguero

    just down to city playing away, no idea why that matters, teams should open up more when at home to make it even easier for city

    Clutching at straws but if we qualify for Europe, Remy might consider staying. Yeah I know it’s a long shot, am gonna be hopeful though. HWTL
