Loic Remy – The Power Of Money Today Is Amazing

3:21 pm, Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 5 Comments

We have to admit that we’ve been very impressed with Loic Remy while he’s been at Newcastle, and that’s both as a footballer – he’s been absolutely brilliant for Newcastle – but also as a man – and he comes across as being a gentleman and a great team player – in short – he’s been a class act on Tyneside.

If you had heard Remy speaking after the games, and the way he celebrates after scoring a goal for Newcastle, you would never believe his ambition is to join one of the five biggest clubs in Europe in the summer.

And Loic has opened up about that rape charge today, which had been hanging over his head since last May,  until he was cleared on February 14th.

This is what he has told The Sun:

“Girls can be greedy and vicious.” “When you’re a footballer, single, and want to have fun, you can have any girl you want.”

“Whether you’re cute, ugly, big, or small — the power of money today, it’s amazing.” “Before it was not like that. I see things that make me afraid. I see these girls — what they can do.”

“Money is a source of happiness, but it is also a poison.” “When you are woken up at 5:00 am by seven or eight police, you think it’s a dream or a nightmare.”

“I didn’t understand what was happening. I tried to say, ‘Hey, put on your shell and work’. But from the stands I heard a few unpleasant remarks.”

Of course all three men, including Remy, have had all the charges dropped against them, but it did cause him some problems – and yesterday he thanked Newcastle for picking him up on loan, after other clubs seemed to balk at taking him, because he had that rape charge hanging over him.

He strongly hinted yesterday that he would join a big five club (if he can), and some readers pointed out that he didn’t say he was going to leave Newcastle explicitly, and maybe it was down the road when he would join a big five club.

That could be true, but the chances of a top club like Arsenal – as just one example – picking him up this summer are extremely high.

Of course we’d love for Loic to sign permanently for Newcastle, but we just cannot see that happening.

And that’s unfortunate – to say the least – because it would be great to have a player as great as Remy permanently on Tyneside.

But there’s some light at the end of the tunnel – we’ve been wrong before – and quite a few times – so you never really know. :D

Comments welcome.

    I have followed this blog site for many years now without participating because I just let the rubbish go in the rubbish. but I have to comment on two subjects: 1…if remy (lower case for a reason) feels he is bigger than his current club then let him go and be the small footballer at a bigger club, as a matter of fact I hope that we do not bid for the little man. if he wants greener grass then go but lets all just shut up about this guy already(enough).
    2…either you are a NEWCASTLE UNITED supporter or you are not… your negative words and blogs and columns are not contributing to the club forward progress nor is it helping with straightening the daily runnings of the club. So shut up you idiots that know so much about football. please stop supporting the club I love, you are all a disgrace to NUFC and should be ashamed of yourselves for blogging the poop you have been over the past three years or more.
    leave Ashley alone, leave Pardew alone… by the way leave the all good people of Newcastle that truely love football and respect the club…alone. as for Pardew, I am proud he stood up to that punk that shoved him, but not one is even acknowledging the fact and stressing the fact that had meyler not pushed the manager then he would not have put his head to his ugly face. I glad my manager stood up unlike you cowards…. get off!!!!

    1numBA9. People on here don’t like the way the club is being run and come on here to vent there frustrations and discuss it, but you just want to be quiet and just let people possibly destroy the club that u so call love, not having an opinion and having the mindset of “whatever happens,happens ” doesn’t show the club much love at all so why don’t u just wind your neck in and shut the hell up, keep your opinion to yourself from now on
