Loic Remy Happy To Make Vow To Newcastle

Loic Remy was cleared of the rape charge against him yesterday by the Metropolitan police,  and he has also served his three match suspension for being sent off at Norwich City and the lad has been interviewed in the Shields Gazette today and he takes responsibility for missing the last three games, and Newcastle have really missed their number one goalscorer.

Loic Remy – he has a big responsibility at Newcastle

Newcastle haven’t scored a goal in the four matches since they returned from their warm weather break in Abu Dhabi, and of course Remy has missed the last three games in which Newcastle have conceded a whopping 10 goals.

This is what Remy told the Shields Gazette today:

“I just know I have to score – this is my job.” “It’s not pressure, it’s just normal. I am a striker, and it’s my job to score goals.”

“We have conceded 10 goals in three games, which is a lot. At the same time we haven’t scored any goals.” “For me, I know I have a big responsibility. The fans are expecting a lot from me.”

“I made a mistake against Norwich,”   “I should have kept my self-control. Now I have learned from my mistake and I won’t do it again.”

“I think my team has missed me. For me, it was difficult to see my team lose some games.”  “It’s difficult when you cannot play, especially when the team is not playing very well. It’s a shame not to have the possibility to play.”

“Now I will come back and try to help the team as much as I can.” “I’m happy to come back, because I haven’t played for three weeks.”

Of course to make things worse Bradley Johnson, who was sent off with Remy near the end of the Norwich game, had his card rescinded but Loic’s three game suspension stood – why that was the case we have no idea but, this is the FA in action and you can never ever accuse that organization of being logical.

And those are good words from Loic, who Alan Pardew says the French striker has been a first-rate professional at Newcastle, and that makes it even harder, because we expect Loic to sign in the summer for a bigger and more ambitious club than Newcastle.

That’s such a shame because he will be sadly missed next season.

What do you think?

    Repost, since the old one is already obsolete: The local newspapers are highlighting a qoute from Williamson. “The majority of the players are hurting” The MAJORITY. Means we have a few who just dosnt give a shit. My bet would be Sissoko, M’Biwa, Remy and Marvaux. Whats yours?

    He has never said he won’t sign either, but if the media keep putting out speculation claiming other clubs are after him, bigger clubs are after him, then why would he bother to sign for us. He is not our player and has no loyalty to us this has been proven in the past. So he want to keep his options open. We should be actively looking to sign a new replacement now.

    Looking forward to seeing him and De Jong as a partnership and actually score some goals. The last few games have been dire with the likes of Shola filling in.

    the players that were hurting were:Debuchy, Williamson, Krul, Taylor and Dummet – says a lot about the rest.
    Pardew tore a strip off Ben Arfa and Santon left the ground early in the huff for being subbed

    It is,nt over yet! We are still 9th, at least for the time being?

    I still just do not trust Remy, he makes the right noises but he still legged it to QPR for an extra25K a week !
    Speaks volumes really don,t it?

    If we lose against Villa in two weeks time, me-thinks Pardew may be the next Prem manager sent packing ?

    Ronald Koeman is leaving Feyenoord at seasons end! and Marco van Basten will be leaving SV Herenveen too !

    But then again, who would come and Train us while Ashley is still the owner?

    Pardew has a long term contract but his tactics beggar belief sometimes?

    Let’s be honest about the Loic Remy situation. He WILL NOT be signing for us.

    We are the Goldilocks club of the PL under A$h£€¥, not too high in the league, not too low mid-table is just right. Not too high because we might get European football and our squad is too small for that, A$h£€¥ does not want to spend TV money on players. Not too low as relegated sides don’t get huge TV fees to advertise SD. Mid-table, ah yes that will do nicely.

    We could try to entice players with large wages, but we will only attract mercenaries with that approach. At the first time of trouble they’ll be away.

    Come the end of the season there will be a number of clubs after Loic Remy. He will have the choice of going to an ambitious club, ruling NUFC out, or to one paying ridiculously high wages again ruling us out.

    I just hope that over the remaining games he rediscovers his scoring form and we can thank him for gracing SJP with his talent.
