Alan Pardew had prepared Newcastle well for this contest at Norwich, but Newcastle couldn’t take one of the many chances they created, and came away with a 0-0 draw with Loic Remy, our top goalscorer with 11 Premier League goals this season was sent off eight minutes from the end of the game.
Loic Remy getting red card tonight
Remy will now miss the next three games and that will be a hammer blow to Newcastle, although Dutch striker Luuk de Jong is expected to be signed tomorrow after taking his Newcastle medical today.
And after the game this is what the Newcastle manager had to say about the game – and also the sending off of both Loic Remy and Bradley Johnson:
“We should have won – we had numerous chances. It’s still a good point though, because it’s a difficult place to come.” “We should have won this with hitting the woodwork three times.”
“They (Remy and Johnson) pushed each other, the arms are raised and the heads have met,” “There is enough there for them both to get sent off but Johnson, he should be really disappointed in himself for the way he reacted as if he had been head-butted.”
“That was not on at all, I am surprised at him because I thought he was an honest pro.”
It was very disappointing that Remy will now kiss the next three games after his French International team-mate Mathieu Debuchy missed the last three games for being sent off at West Brom.
