Loic Remy has talked to the local pres today, and he’s said the players are now over the very sudden departure of Yohan Cabaye to PSG in January, and are now all set to do very well over the last 10 games of the season.
Loic Remy – happy after Sissoko scored his second goal
He seems a great team player and seems to love life at Newcastle
The French international is now with the France squad in Paris, and they play Holland tonight in a World Cup warm-up game.
Loic is not only a great player who scored his 13th goal for the team at Hull on Saturday, but he’s always comes across as a real team player and a smashing lad.
Loic was born to play for a proud and great club like Newcastle United.
This is what Remy has said today:
“We lost a little bit of confidence in those games because we lost an important player in Cabaye.” “I am very proud of my team-mates because we’ve all worked very hard.”
“And we feel that’s how we have to play for the rest of the season.” “I feel we can get some good results in the next few games, but we want to show the fans that we can fight for every game.”
“They want us to win every game. We want this as well. I want to say keep going and support the team like they have been doing since the beginning of the season.”
“We are going to do the best for them until the end of the season.” “We will keep working hard on the training ground.” “There is no reason why we can’t get good results in the future.”
“Everybody wants to get good results. When we work hard we get good results.” “We take each game as it comes and hope we are up there at the end of the season.”
Good (great) words from the French striker there.
Newcastle want to sign Remy permanently in the simmer, and with those comments it would even seems he really likes it at Newcastle and could even want to stay.
Certainly, a great run-in to the end of the season would help Newcastle in that endeavor, but to qualify for Europe it’s almost certain we need to be in 6th place in the league – unless Arsenal and Manchester City both reach the FA Cup Final.
It’s not clear what the transfer fee would be for Remy, and if it wasn’t fixed by the loan deal, it will have gone up this season with his great performances for Newcastle.
But Newcastle have money available in the transfer market this summer, so let’s hope Mike Ashley spends it – and if we can get Remy in permanently, it would be a tremendous boost for the beleaguered fans.
There’s still a chance – a small chance of Newcastle doing that.
