Loic Remy – Newcastle Supporters Expect A Lot From Me

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.

    If we attack the game, I have a feeling we can snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat today. Hull have been very good at home this season, but I still think that if we get at them and stop them from getting their game going we will score. It’s now up to our team to perform.

    If they start by ignoring AP’s motivational talk, and setup plan, and discuss their tactics when they go in to their huddle we will win this.

    HWTL 3 – 1 to the TOON

    What is, “Newcastle Fans expect a lot from me” ! supposed to mean?

    Did Remy actually say that because if he did, and if he had honored his transfer agreement in the first place instead of turning his back to go to London and play for floppy chops at Loftus Road !

    It is then not surprising that the Toon Faithful are not convinced by any quotes, coming from his direction?
    I am not sure whether this quote is true or not? But it does,nt really matter because i am fully expecting him to be gone come the summer, together with De Jong?

    If, by any chance Luuk starts scoring goals, Boroussia are going to fetch him back to Germany quicker than you can say Munchenglad Back ! Then we are going to left with Shola, and who else as a Striker next year?

    We did,nt play well against the Villains last week and were lucky with the three points! By no means am i convinced that our form crisis is solved and i think we are in for a big loss today ?

    croftus5678 @2…… What Pardew says he wants doesn’t necessarily reflect Ashley’s aims.

    We’ve seen it a number of times – the reality turns out to be far from his understanding or wishes.

    In any event, let’s not lose out on the probability that all the spin’s got something to do with stemming a tide of non-renewal of season tickets and future sales.

    A cynic? Moir? Non, non, non!!!
