Last Home Game For Loic Remy – Will It Be Memorable?

It will be the final home game for Loic Remy on Saturday at St. James” Park, and the French International has had a great season on Tyneside with a goal in every two appearances, and so far he has 13 goals in 26 appearances for the Magpies, and seems to have enjoyed his stay on Tyneside.

Loic Remy – scoring at West Ham

The news is that Arsenal are said to be making a move for him in the transfer market, and they will bid around £12M for the striker, and Loic seems to want to play for the top London side.

One of the reasons we have lost six games in a row, was that Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy have been our since the Hull City game, in which Pardew picked up his seven game ban – and it seems to have started the rot.

But the two of them started for the first time since the Hull game at Arsenal, as did Moussa Sissoko, who had also missed a few games with injury, and the three Frenchmen gave us a little bit more bite and class in the side.

This is what Pardew told the Shields Gazette about them:

“We had the three internationals coming back,” “And they’re important players for us.” “I don’t think they were every going to produce their best performance on their first full game back in the Premier League.”

“I thought Moussa looked great considering he had a hamstring injury only three weeks ago. I was really pleased with him.” “They will be up to speed for Saturday.”

“Debuchy looked a little bit more tired than the other two.” “I took Debuchy off because I wanted to save him for Saturday. He will be better for the game.”

With Loic Remy leaving the club, and Luuk de Jong simply not making the grade, Newcastle will need to bring in some strikers in the summer transfer window, although there seems a chance that veteran striker Shola Ameobi could be offered a contract extension this summer.

Let;s hope Remy can fire in a few of those goals for us on Saturday, and who knows we could even get a win – that’s when we score more goals than the opposition – remember?
