Manager Alan Pardew and the rest of the coaches at Newcastle did a little jig after Loic Remy’s great winning goal yesterday, and it just showed what tremendous pressure they had been under at Newcastle.

But the win is just exactly what we need, even if it was a little fortuitous, but Loic Remy also knew the magnitude of his goal, and he whipped off his shirt, jumped on top of the sidings and saluted the crowd.
It was everything Newcastle fans wanted to see – drama indeed as Newcastle got a win, and in such dramatic fashion too.
And it was good news for Newcastle fans when Alan talked after the game about having money to spend in the summer transfer market, since we’ve spent very little in the last two transfer windows, bringing in only two strikers in on loan.
This is what the manager said to talkSPORT:
“We can build on this win now and the way we need to build is by finishing strongly and then we can go into the summer and strengthen,”
“We all know as much as we haven’t spent any money in the last 18 months, we have got a nice little kitty there and we’ve got to make good use of it. If we make good use of it we can come back stronger next year.”
Newcastle will want to sign Loic Remy permanently, but in truth we have no chance of that – unless of course Remy has seen what tremendous fans and support there exists on Tyneside – and it’s not too bad a place at all to play your football.
Over 50,000 were there yesterday, to give a side who had just one win in their last nine games their full support.
Not many clubs can boast that kind of loyalty and it all paid off yesterday, and emotions were raw indeed when Loic scored.
We don’t think the French striker will have too many better moments in his career than yesterday, after scoring a goal.
It has lifted the spirits of Newcastle fans and now the players must push on and show they are not too bad a side, even without Yohan Cabaye.
And this upcoming transfer window is likely to be one of the biggest ever, since Mike Ashley bought the club in the summer of 2007.
Howay The Lads!!
