Loic Remy has again been selected for the France squad for the game with Holland next Wednesday, but we reported yesterday that Tim Krul has been cut by manager Louis van Gaal for that warm-up game for the World Cup.
Loic Remy – just before being sent off at Norwich
Mathieu Debuchy and Moussa Sissoko are also in the squad for that game, as is midfielder Yohan Cabaye, who is now at PSG, and Newcastle target in January, Clement Grenier, has also made the French squad.
Loic Remy scored the sensational winner last Sunday, but he did have a couple of chances before that where he could have also scored, and we are hoping he will be a lot sharper after his first game back after serving a three match ban.
This is what Loic said today in the local papers:
“I think the supporters expect a lot from me.” “I lost my self-control against Norwich.” “This type of thing will never happen again.”
“I’m sorry because I left my team-mates for three games.”
Loic seems like he’s a great guy, and Alan Pardew has said he loves it at Newcastle and is an easy striker to manage, but the odds are still against Newcastle being able to sign him permanently in the summer.
We have to hope that Loic is in good goal-scoring form today at the KC Stadium, but Hull are in good form and blasted Cardiff 4-0 last Saturday, and beat Brighton 2-1 to reach the last eight of the FA Cup last Monday night.
We have to hope Newcastle’s revival continues today and maybe we can see more goal(s) from Loic this afternoon.
