I Am Very Proud Of My Team Mates – I Am Very Happy

Loic Remy has shown himself to be a real team player, the Frenchman is very modest,  and he can put the ball into the back of the net too, in fact he is everything Newcastle fans want from a striker.

Loic Remy after scoring … yyyyeeeessss!

Whether he will sign for us permanently in the summer is still doubtful however,  but he has talked about the team after yesterday’s emotional end to the game, and especially to the Newcastle fans.

This is what the goal hero of yesterday had to say:

“We lost the last three games so us it was very important to get the result.”  “That is why I am very proud of my team-mates.” “We have to think positively right through the season.”

“That is what we did yesterday, so I am very happy.” “I think we lost a little bit of confidence because we lost some important players like Yohan Cabaye.”

“He went and we had many injured as well. I was sent off and missed three games.”  “The fans have to understand the team can move and we can make changes.” “Now everybody is coming back into the squad and I feel we can have good results in the last few games.”

“We want to show the fans the team fights in every game.” “I understand they can be angry and against us. However, they have to understand sometimes it can happen.”

“We had a good start to the season and now we try to give them a good sensation.” “Luuk de Jong gave me the ball back.” “My job is to score goals. Sometimes you can miss some good opportunities – for example when I touched the post.” 

“However, I stay concentrated all through the game.”  “The game is 90 minutes and you never know what will happen.” “That is why I was relieved to score this goal for the team.”

Those are good words from Loic, and it’s obvious we have missed his class in the three games he was suspended, and they were all defeats and we didn’t score a goal – apart from that we did well. 🙁

So Loic got us an extra 2 points yesterday with his great goal,  and a win that was so vital for the club.

And we were a little surprised that Papiss Cisse got the nod in front of Luuk de Jong yesterday, but we may soon see Loic and Luuk as the front two – maybe at Hull City next Saturday.

And we have to take something out of that game, after they shockingly beat us 3-2 at home earlier in the season.

Another win in that game and things will be a lot better at Newcastle – that’s for sure.

    Sooner Cisse gets sold the better as he really does offer very little now that his confidence has gone. However, all we did get when his confidence was there, was long range efforts that were sometimes on target. If the Ruskis want him, get rid and use the money to sign up Remy.

    Remy won’t sign though, he doesn’t want to stay.

    I’m all for upgrading cisse but with remy, de jong and shola leaving is it wise to sell cisse.

    A fortunate deflection which led to excellent individual skill by Remy doesn’t patch over the mega poor game that was played for the other 83 minutes.

    Again, individual skill getting Pardew out of the mess. Yet the way Pardew arrogantly punched the air made it look like he’d mastermined his way to a league title win.

    The lack of movement all over the pitch bar Debuchy’s overlaps and Cisse at times making his usual passless runs were totally embarrassing. If Pardew can’t see that lack of movement then… well, he can’t see it because he doesn’t do anything about it.

    Awful football.

    We still had two very good chances, sitters really, remy hitting the post and cisse prodding over…should have had 2 goals there.

    I agree still struggled but both fullbacks did well offensively I thought and we actually had some great delivery on corners.


    I think de jong will stay, but what i mean is he will go unless we pay, so keeping him will cost us money, have to sign him.

    So we will only have 1 striker in cisse unless we buy, whether it’s de jong, remy or anyone else.

    “ashley gone pardew gone wonga gone”

    I think if ashley goes, the other two would follow. New owners like to put their own guy in, and i can’t see many other owners wanting a sponsor like Wonga.

    That game was an more severe insight into how we came fifth. Disjointed football for the vast majority of the game and individual skill to nick a point.

    Williamson and Coloccini did play well, but is that because Villa hadn’t had a win in 5 games as well I think it was. That or they hadn’t scored in 5 games. One or the two.

    The crowd is so quiet for a reason. We are watching appalling team football being played.

    How good players can stoop so low is the mark of a career long underperforming manager and his wisdom of invisibility.

    I see. Yeah fat man is not one to open his wallet on a whim, and since we have never replaced a sold player in the same window, i see your point.

    Has anyone else been thinking – much has been written about the fact we haven’t scored a goal for such a long time. Memories are short, forgetting the “goal” scored by Tiote against City, which only the ref and Pellegrini disputed. And had that sensational goal counted it might have prevented the dip in confidence we have experiencd since. If and buts, yes, but such decisions can have huge repercussions as we know.

    Transfer, Cisse should have been better, but he was wrecked well before that chance.

    If he had regular chances and wasn’t just rebuilding his confidence he’d have done better.

    We are bound to get a couple of chances. The Remy miss came from their defender gifting us the ball by being stupid in his box. Rather than incisive play.

    It just a sad way to scrap for chances.

    Remy celebrated right in our corner. He was going mental.

    I would be too if the team have the team fed me scraps.

    Like a hungry man eating a meal, he will devour his food.

    Markaccus, yes it was inside the box. Note, we scored. But it was also down the fact that he manufactured that himself from a lose ball. It wasn’t laid on a plate through two or three great passes.

    Scraps, deflections, opposition errors, long shots, own goals freekicks, penalties and individual skill is how we make up the bulk of our goals.

    Teamwork goals are few and far in between. It is very frustrating a saddening to see.

    on chances , we should have won, no question, they where fantastic chances,

    but the fact that our MF runs around chasing shadows against a very poor villa team was embarrassing, tiote had to resort to kicking anything that moved again

    I have no problem with the guys at fullback offering support , but this seems to be our plan every game, which against any other team leaves us exposed at the back,,

    greatful for the 3 points, now we should be safe,

    the other thing from yesterday, dummet , are our senior players so poor he has to take the freekicks and corners , or is this a LB thing,
