Injury Scare For Loic Remy

During France’s game in Paris last Wednesday night against Holland, Newcastle’s Loic Remy picked up an injury, after a strong challenge from Bruno Martins, just minutes after Loic came on as a substitute in the 2-0 win.

Loic Remy – in action against Hull last Saturday

It’s being reported this morning that Loic took a knock on his ankle in the game, and was unable to run it off.

So it is being assessed by the Newcastle medics this coming week – but the very last thing we need is for Loic to miss the important game at Fulham next Saturday.

It’s the FA Cup quarter finals this weekend,  and Newcastle were supposed to play Everton at home, but the Toffees will face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the early kick-off game today.

Newcastle’s game has now been rearranged with Everton for Tuesday night, 25th March.

We hope Remy’s ankle problem is just a blip, and that he will soon be back in full training during the coming week.

We need to rack up our third successive win at Craven Cottage next Saturday, and that’s possible with the form the lads have shown over the last couple of games.

And a win will be our eighth away win of the season, and that will equal the games we won on the road two years ago, when Newcastle finished fifth.

Howay The Lads!!

    I hate the idea of Loic being out of the squad, but if he cannot make the Fulham game it might give us a chance to see LDJ and Cisse together. Luuk holds the ball up well and links play around the opposition box, if Cisse can stay onside he may get a goal…. or two.

    He’ll be fine hes got a while to recover and am sure he continued to play on for France didnt he?

    On another note I just watched the Bundesliga highlights and there is some talent there in the midtable teams. Sack off France and lets head to Germany I say

    According to the report I read, Loci could not run it off, and will be assessed by the Newcastle medical staff this week, I agree there is still plenty of time for him to recover though.

    France really had a good game against Netherland. Not a great team, but we could be a very dangerous outsider.
