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.
