Loic Remy To Miss Manchester United Game


Alan Pardew has given his news conference today, and after we heard the news that Moussa Sissoko is out for the next two or three games, Loic Remy will not make the game on Saturday, and the last time Loic played was for France in the friendly against Holland, which they won 2-0 in Paris, and for Newcastle he scored in the great 4-1 win at Hull.

Loic Remy – missed Saturday’s game with calf injury

But that’s when some of Newcastle’s problems started, and manager Alan Pardew stupidly headbutted Hull City player David Meyler, and it’s been downhill from then.

We were initially  told that Loic could be back for the game against Manchester United – but that’s not going to happen – so we hope he’s available for the next game at Stoke City, and with the Potters only 6 points behind us – we need at least a draw in that game.

But that’s also what we said about last week’s game at Southampton, who were one point behind us. 🙁

This is what Alan Pardew has just said in his news conference:

“Moussa has a hamstring strain,” “He’ll be  out for at least two or three weeks.”

Moussa Sissoko picked up his hamstring strain in the last game at Southampton, and we have no idea who can now score the goals against Manchester United on Saturday.

But Newcastle need to wake up and put in a good performance at home against the reigning Premier League Champions.

And under new manager Davide Moyes they have struggled big time this season, and in normal circumstances we would have a decent chance to win this game at home – which happened two years ago , when we smashed them 3-0 in the corresponding fixture.

But it’s difficult to do that unless you can score some goals.

Comments welcome.

    Start Adam Armstrong – f**k it, what can go wrong?

    At least when we lose they gain experience – experience that seems to do reverse for some senior players

    Who gives a stuff what money Mike Ashley gets from Sports Direct??? I don’t care if one of the players gets loads of money from his property business or Pardew sells a bunch of shares and makes a million quid either.

    I care about NUFC, not Mike Ashley.

    Ibiza- The institutional investor opposition to Ashley is to stop him
    gaining creeping control of Sports Direct – he currently
    has 62%. He is being asked to align himself with institutions and
    take a dividend. It’s not as tax efficient but it seems he has little
    alternative. He doesn’t always get his own way-LOL.

    Sometimes losing badly can damage a young player when what they really need is confidence to do what they can do. Playing and nothing working for him because the level is too high can damage the confidence and set the player back.

    It’s not an exact science and there are experts at every club for this sort of thing. There are also loads of youngsters who looked amazing when they were young and didn’t fulfil their potential because they were mis-managed (Jeffers, Gazza, Chopra maybe, Rodwell, Gosling and plenty of others I can’t even remember any more yet they should be household names). Give that lot to a SAF early on and they ‘d have fulfilled their potential.

    TDSarf…It was only a little joke, clearly I thought.

    However, big picture, of course MA and SD are of interest to the fan base. It would seem that the three are intertwined and whilst two of those entities seem to improve at an impressive rare, one of them seems to just tick along. Perhaps just as it’s in its infancy as far as MA involvement is concerned, I don’t believe that to be the case though, but that is just my personal opinion on it. So I give a stuff, even if my original comment was only meant as a joke.

    Ian…I read that. Seems they like the fact he has a knack of generating lots of money and keeping costs down, but aren’t so keen on other aspects of his approach. Sounds somewhat familiar. Whilst not the same setup as his involvement with NUFC, it does show, as you say, that he doesn’t always get his own way. A refreshing thought.

    I personally would play a 5-4-1 against Man U as we are not going to score anyway…

    Anita, Mbiwa, Willo, Colo, Haidara
    –Ben Arfa, Tiote, Gosling, Santon
    ——————–LDJ——————

    And that leave practically nobody but Dummet, Marveaux and Cisse to come off the bench. We are going to have some first timers make the bench simply because there is nobody else!

    If Rolando Aarons makes the bench I bet Carver will give him a run. Pardew wouldn’t… but I bet Carver will.

    TDS – previous reply re Sissoko.
    I do not think there was anything to be gained by calling me a dick or that I had a bee in my bonnet. Retreating to a default position of insults -really does not enhance the debate. You really need to read posts correctly- I did not say that you replied in response to a suggestion that he was injured. All I said was that you stated he was was taking a couple of days off with his girlfriend -you later suggested that “Maybe Pardew thinks he needs a few days off to recharge his batteries. It’s not always the best thing to stay at the club and graft away in the training ground”.
    Clearly your “shouts” were not correct (FACT) -in view of the FACT that he is injured and at Clairefontaine (FACT).

    It’s amazing I thought we had cured one of our main problems with Faye Downey.

    Now no one wants to play Manu and the sick bay is busier than ever. Co-incidence I don’t think so.

    TeDiouS, although he may venture otherwise, sadly isn’t the most intellectually resourceful and hasn’t yet grasped it would be so much better just to let people think he is a complete ……. . . . . . rather than continuing to blog on here and confirm it with his obvious and rather unsubtle insults ranging from d–k to idiot etc.

    You can’t compare a business like SD with a company like NUFC. Mike Ashley is clearly a brilliant businessman but we’d need a brilliant football man at the helm to compare. Let’s say we had someone like SAF join us now and be willing to stick around long term…then it would be similar.

    Success on the pitch at NUFC doesn’t require great business skills, it requires great skills and bringing youth through, signing the right players, coaches and tactics.

    I still don’t think MA’s personal wealth is relevant…

    Er…so in your world you bypass comments like maybe and justifications that he can do something if he has time off and just tell me that I’m wrong for stating that he had time off? Don’t be ridiculous.

    http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11668/9246323/transfer-news-romelu-lukakus-agent-says-he-has-spoken-to-tottenham-about-a-transfer

    “There aren’t 20 teams that can afford to buy Romelu,” he said. “He won’t go from Everton to, let’s say, Swansea.”

    Remind me again, can we compete with Swansea on a financial level? Actually, simplify the question, is there anyone we can compete with financially?

    As many have said, any chance of Lukaku has to be so miniscule that it makes Anita look a giant.

    Shame, he’s clearly got a bright future ahead of him. I imagine he wont be going cheaply mind.

    Jesper…You know me, always prefer the simple answer!

    It’s a nice idea though that the club may have realised we lack a goal scorer and would be willing to spend a decent chunk of what the club simply has to have in it’s account come season end. Remember those days?

    Oh how times have changed, when we didn’t have money, we spend it, now we do have money, we don’t.

    Middle ground and NUFC don’t seem to go very well together.

    Ibiza…. I reckon we’d struggle to financially compete with a charity shop. Its a shame i bet if you offered chelsea 17mil (What they paid for him) at the start of this season we probably could’ve had him. Not like he’s a risky investment either, young, proven PL goalscorer potentially gigantic sell on value (Mikes favourite attribute in a player). Then our only problem would be convincing him we are going anywhere. Im sorry but to break it to big al but players aren’t exactly jumping to play for his teams now or ever in the past…. and future 🙁

    Tads…It wasn’t even at the stage where I was asking fans to give up money, just to happily not have any new players arrive this summer, a bit like last summer and January too 😉

    Rainrix…It would seem the tide of opinion has turned as far as potential players are concerned. 2 years ago we looked like a decent enough option and at the very least a great stepping stone club. Now? I imagine we look like a risky bet.

    Still, I’m sure they’re on top of it all.

    Of course they are 😉

    …as long as someone tells them that if the club wants to buy players there a few guidelines:

    a) scout players you can afford

    b) stop bidding for players you cannot afford both transfer fee and agent fee

    c) you have to complete the transfer before Sep. 1st.
