Loic Remy hopefully will return to the Newcastle side for the next game at home to a beatable Swansea side this coming Saturday, and hopefully he will have trained for over a week and be ready for what is another important game for Newcastle. Although our injured players aren’t exactly rushing to get back into the team over the last few weeks.
Loic Remy – wants to join a great club
Since the Hull City game when Alan Pardew stupidly head butted David Meyler – we have played six, lost five of them and scored only one goal in the 1-0 home win against Crystal Palace and concede 13.
So that’s 3 points form six games and a goal difference of -12 – worse than relegation form.
And if Loic Remy did have some idea that he may stay with Newcastle after his loan spell ends in the summer that will have gone up in smoke over the last six games – all of which he has missed through injury.
Loic has been talking to the French press, and he had this to say:
“Clubs are discussing with my agent, I’m open for everything,” “I want to join a great European club, to play at the highest level. Regarding my future, everything is possible, even coming back to France.”
“I’ve played for great clubs in France, like Lyon and Marseilles. If I was a Brazilian? I would be Neymar.”
With Remy missing, Newcastle have looked simply pathetic in front of goal – and in the last six games we have scored just one goal – by Papiss Cisse – after three minutes of stoppage time against Crystal Palace.
But with Swansea losing to Chelsea yesterday, they are only 3 points above the drop zone - so surely we have a chance to try to turn this thing around on Saturday.
But with the fans’ utter frustration at Newcastle right now, there will be banners wanting Pardew out of the club, and maybe banners wanting Ashley out of the club, so that’s not going to be conducent to getting a good result.
And with things looking a bit chaotic at the club right now, we would guess that Swansea thinks it could even be a great opportunity to pick up all 3 points – if they can just score a goal.
And to think once upon a time, clubs would dread visiting St. James’ Park.
That’s no longer true – even for teams fighting relegation.
And there seems no chance at all that Loic Remy will want to join Newcastle in the summer – maybe a 5% chance?
No, that’s being far too pessimistic – let’s make it 6%.
