Newcastle Striker Moves Closer To Deal With Arsenal

Football Direct News is reporting that French International striker Loic Remy, who is on loan at Newcastle for the season, has held another meeting with Arsenal.

Loic Remy – another meeting with Arsenal reported

It’s being reported that this is a final meeting to simply decide on the final details of the move, and it’;s been reported for a while now that Arsenal is Remy’s first choice of club, when he will move on from QPR in the summer.

Remy is said to have first met with Arsenal last month, and the Gunners let Remy and his agent know of their plans and ambitions for next season, and we assume Remy was impressed.

Loic has said he wants to join a top European club when his loan spell is up at Newcastle, and he’s been in great form for us with 13 goals in 26 appearances for the Magpies.

It’s been a case of lost opportunities for Newcastle with Remy, as were after the striker back in 2008, before he moved from St Etienne to Marseilles the following year.

And then sixteen months ago Newcastle thought they had signed the striker from Marseilles, but he changed his mind and joined QPR, who were bottom of the league at the time.

QPR stayed bottom and they were relegated last May, which is why he then came on loan to Newcastle United last August, but Loic wants to join a bigger club than Newcastle – and Arsenal are certainly that.

But there has been news that Bayern Munich, who were sensationally beaten 4-0 and basically out-played (yes out-played) by a resurgent Real Madrid side last night in Munich, are now said to be interested in signing Remy.

Remy has already thanked Newcastle and their fans for supporting him this season, after a rape charge hung over his head from last May, but he was completely cleared of that earlier this year.

Now if we can only get Loic to score a hat-trick against Cardiff City this Saturday, to break that six game losing streak. 😀

    When I read this story I was totally shocked when I found out it wasn’t about Shola.

    I think we all know he’s not coming to us so I’m not bothered where he goes. I’m more concerned about who will be coming in.

    Come on Alan we’re all willing you on, fill that cardboard box with the stuff in your desk…..

    Its mostly Ashley’s fault but not all. Cabaye leaving was a symptom of Pardews lack of application, not a cause of it. He left for much greener grass because that was the deal all along. Ashleys determination to crunch the numbers and apply his tacky SD model to the club would cause us to be an also-ran mid table outfit normally, but with Pardews preference for workers over skill, he sticks with a side filled with players who run around a lot, but have little vision, few passing skills and no confidence in any outcome. I used to thnk the likes of Marveaux, Abeid and maybe HBA were petulant and lazy, but its not all that is it? He seems to resent creative players because he sees a wasteful percentage of defensive stats. He demoralizes them by putting them on the margins of the team, then they get 10-20 minutes sub duty to try and pull back from a defeat. Only the carthorses appreciate that they are getting a run in the side. Look at the CB pairing at the start of the season – Willo was partnered with Mbiwa and it was looking great, Mbiwa gets dropped out for no other reason than Colo could walk unaided again and since then Mbiwa has been at best a shambles when he has appeared. Man management? Pfffft!

    I read something about that walk out on 60 minutes in the chronicle or gazette I think mate, personally I think it’s a good idea with maybe a protest before the game outside the ground with the vocals continuing once inside aimed at fatty and his puppet or maybe getting to seats like 5 minutes late, but can people cope without 5mins of football? Highly doubt it! These options are probably our best bet as a full on match boycott just won’t happen unfortunately!

    Frank De Boer regards us as a big club, coents about us saying how we are currently sleeping and not unlocking full potential. He said Spurs are as big as Liverpool and Newcastle.

    Looks like he would definitely jump on the opportunity to work here and it would just work as he would be the perfect man Mike would go for.

    Surprise awaits.

    Also anyone heard Mike Ashley had private dinner with coloccini to sort out his future??

    No doubt colic con I hates Pardew so he must of mentioned wanting him out with rest of players supporting him.apart from the likes of shola,gosling, dummet,Elliot the ones that are getting shipped out basically.

    Frank De Boer works fantastically with youths and is on a very tight financial restriction.

    Hope this works out!,

    Once upon a time we would have top strikers glad to come to Newcastle United Football Club, but now thanks to the loss of respect around the world through the antics of Alan Pardew and the lack of ambition shown by Mike Ashley, our beloved club is in the doldrums. Our only hope is that minimum, M A give Pardew the elbow in favour of a quality manager and give him total say over transfers and the money to carry them out. Hopefully Ashley will do this and we can start to rebuild the reputation and the squad of our beloved Newcastle United !

    Wishful thinking. And I don’t think you believe it either.
