Alan Pardew talked a little about Loic Remy, and said that Newcastle has missed the goalscorer over the last three games, all of which we have lost by at least three goals.
Loic Remy – in a good place
And since the 4-0 debacle against Tottenham at home there has been good news for Loic Remy, because a couple of days later he was cleared of rape, along with two other men – and that charge has been hanging over his head since last May.
And certainly in his interviews this week Loic has seemed upbeat and has told Newcastle fans he will do all he can for the team in the final 12 games of the season, starting against Aston Villa tomorrow.
And this is what Alan Pardew said about the player yesterday:
“We have some players who are in decent places right now to be honest, particularly Loic, who has had the pressure of the court case removed from him.”
“He’s done remarkably well in the first part of the season to have that hanging in the background on him and his family.” “To have that removed, I see a real lease of life in him.”
Loic already has 11 goals in 22 games this season, and has been one of the stars of the Premier League, and it would be great if he would sign permanently for the Tyneside club.
But with Arsenal said to be interested, and other top clubs watching his progress this season, the chances are not good that we can sign him.
But we’ve been wrong before.
