Just in case Newcastle fans get too positive about Loic Remy maybe signing for us full-time in January or in the summer, the French striker has come out and said he may even return to QPR in the summer – but why would anybody want to play for QPR when they can play at one of the great stadiums in England every other week – St. James’ Park – and in front of 52,000 mad screaming Geordies?
Loic Remy - unsure of his planes in the summer
Remy has again been asked about his future and this is what he said today:
“I’m sorry, I don’t know. At the moment I don’t know.” “The President of QPR may want to keep me next season.” “I miss the Champions League. It is a very special competition.”
“Next season I can play the Champions League again.” “We will see what happens, if I stay here or if we play in the Champions League.”
“Maybe it is the stadium or it is magic, because since I arrived at Newcastle I feel very confident.” ““When I arrived people said I would see in my first game I would be surprised because the atmosphere is so loud.”
We have a feeling that his agents have told Remy there will be no decision made on his future until the summer, and like they did in January – they could simply take the best offer that comes along at that time.
In January, QPR were bottom of the league, but in order to ambush his move to Newcastle, which had almost been completed – the London club offered him ridiculously high wages (what else could they offer?), and he amazingly went to QPR.
And we may have to face the truth that if Remy doesn’t want to join Newcastle United, with all our history, the bast fans in the country, and more of a decent side the season – we simply have to accept that.
The truth is that we are not the club we once were, when Bobby Robson and Kevin Keegan managed the club – we’ve been left behind over the last eight years or so – there’s no doubt about that – but there have been some signs over the last two or three seasons that we may be coming back.
QPR were bottom of the league when Remy arrived in January, and they remained bottom of the league through the end of the season and were relegated, in spite of the six goals Remy scored in just 14 appearances.
QPR certainly have a decent chance of coming back to the Premier League in May, but we’d be shocked if Remy went back to QPR – for whatever reason this time, but we wouldn’t be shocked at all if he ends up at a club who will play Champions League football next season.
That may or may not be Newcastle United.
