More Bad News On Loic Remy

2:19 pm, Thursday, April 10th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 20 Comments

For the third week running, when Loic Remy had expected to be fit, he has again been ruled out of Newcastle United’s Premier League game – this time at Stoke City –  and it means he will have missed the last six games for Newcastle and after Saturday, there’s only four games to play. :(

Loic Remy – misses out again on Saturday

And this will put an enormous question mark over whether we can get anything at the Britannia Stadium, since in the 10 games Loic has been missing, Newcastle have managed to score only one goal.

The French international apparently had a scan on Tuesday, but there are still doubts over his calf injury, and we suppose there’s no guarantee he will even be ready for the next game either – which is a home game against Swansea a week on Saturday.

This is what Alan Pardew said:

“Loic Remy won’t make this game but is in training and we hope he’ll be available next week.” “Tim Krul has a chance of playing.”

“You need to stand tall especially at a club like Newcastle United.” “The players need to be resilient and hopefully we show that at Stoke.”

“If we can get a win or score the first goal it will give us a boost to kick on.” “We are far from finished in the league.

We had really hoped Loic would be fit for the Stoke game because a Stoke win will put them only 3 points behind Newcastle in 10th place – so they could overtake Newcastle, who have been in terrible form over the last five games and got only one win and four defeats.

Loic Remy will want to ensure he is 100% fit before he returns, because he wants to be fully fit for the World Cup in Brazil in the summer.

And it’s noticeable that Mathieu Debuchy has also been out injured since France’s 2-0 friendly win over Holland on March 5th, when both Newcastle players were injured.

Loic will not have many games left for Newcastle when he does get fit again, and while we don’t want to be too negative, we don’t think there’s much chance of Newcastle getting anything out of the game on Saturday.

    I bet if there was a friendly match for France Saturday to see who goes to the world cup…..he’d be fit

    We’re the WORST team in th premier league at the moment, a team of flops not even earning there wages. Disgrace but 50000 don’t mind. Strange club!

  • 4 valle // Apr 10, 2014 at 2:34 PM

    Listen… Remy is GONE, what good is he going to do in the last few games? Its like pissing your pants when its cold. Give our young players the chance instead for f***s sake. We have nothing to lose, yet both they and us as a club have allot to gain by giving them some precious first team experience.

    Once again we are fed crap from Pardew, Remy will not play for us again and Debuchy and Sissoko will also not play this season. My prediction last week is looking good. 1 point from last 6 games, no goals scored and 20 conceded.
    Now Ashley convince us to renew season tickets.

  • 8 TheMightyWyn // Apr 10, 2014 at 2:39 PM

    Toon KK totally agree. The heart has been ripped out of this team and appears to have been replaced by a number of spare parts including dysfunctional left gonad! Until the correct parts are in the proper place we won’t win … but what’s worse is we won’t even compete.

  • 9 Big Pappa Cissé // Apr 10, 2014 at 2:44 PM

    Just of to put a tenner on us getting stuffed by 3 or more goals .

    Be back later .

  • 10 Jail for Ashley // Apr 10, 2014 at 2:49 PM

    I really don’t care if Remy doesn’t play again, the great tactician Alan Pardew might be forced to give Armstrong a chance if he doesn’t ever recover, and hopefully the prolific Shola might have to sit out a few games due to old age to force his hand.

    More dribble from the unsackable one!

    How about you stand up tall and Fcukoff? Didn’t think so you spineless, egotistical halfwit!

    Didn’t he initially say 3-4 weeks for remy and 4-5 weeks for debs! Yet more lies being spoonfed to us! Just tell the truth that it could be anything from 5_6 weeks! I know sometimes injuries are unpredictable to diagnose but he clearly lies about near everyone, everytime!

    Can’t wait for Saturday’s excuses!

    Remy will make a token appearance in the next week or two but “tweak” his injury & will be gone like the wild goose in winter.

    I’m sorry to say but Ap has done all he can do at NUFC and needs to find other than Black & white pastures. If the kids are going to be coming through, and big egos signed from other leagues, AP’s ego will sour and/or ruin the newcomers.

    Stoke will be looking for revenge after their debacle up here. Pardew will hopefully be peddled soon.

  • 14 Average_Contents // Apr 10, 2014 at 2:55 PM

    Tbh I’ve haven’t really cared if remy hasn’t played because he’s not our player! Give someone else a chance instead, i.e. Arma you gobshite

  • 15 Jail for Ashley // Apr 10, 2014 at 2:59 PM

    We all thought we’d be relegation fodder after the disaster of the season before and we surprised a lot of people in that first half of time round, it remains to be seen if Pardew can motivate the players to getting 43 points again before giving them the rest of the season off, we all know that the aim is top ten ten and nothing more, I’m sure all the players know this as well.

  • 16 guvnor // Apr 10, 2014 at 3:01 PM

    Pardew talks some crap, stand tall the blokes been watching to many John Wayne films.

  • 17 guvnor // Apr 10, 2014 at 3:12 PM

    Jail motivation didn’t come into the equation Cabaye and Remy were the difference between now and relegation, Pardew is just the nuisance value.

    I did say at the moment, but our players aren’t given their all. What I find so strange is why people want to sit through 90 minutes of diabolical rubbish. At least wait until theres something worth watching. At the moment people are supporting MA not the football.

  • 19 gazzaforever // Apr 10, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    Remy has always been injury prone. He s a great ST but he always has small injuries like this one and miss a lot of games every year. But dont worry, Pardew and Carver have the ultimate plan against Stoke : Put Benny on the bench.

  • 20 anthc // Apr 10, 2014 at 7:10 PM

    Remys more than likely tucked up in bachelor pad in the big smoke never to be seen again. Debuchy is keeping himself for the world cup along with sissoko. No more points this season other than possibly cardiff. As kimbo points out why should we buy season tickets? I can take losing but its the manner in which we do so. Fifty a quid a month and using time off from work is a bit steep in my bbooks.i need a couple of signing announcements and pardew to be peddled before I part with my hard earned cash. That’ll be no renewal then!
