Pardew – We Are Working Hard To Keep Loic Remy


After the game yesterday,  Alan Pardew was interviewed by Sky Sports, and to be fair to the lads played extremely well for 60 minutes yesterday, and we had Liverpool where we wanted them – but then two lapses in concentration meant two Liverpool goals, and we were suddenly 2-1 down, and then Shola Ameobi was sent off, followed after 87 minutes by Paul Dummett receiving a red card.

Alan Pardew – Newcastle manager

Newcastle lost the game 2-1 and that was our seventh loss in the last eight league games – not good.

This is what Alan Pardew told Sky Sports after the game

“I think we’ve got to give the fans and club a lift in the summer by recruiting well, and hopefully we can do that.” “It’s obvious that we need to recruit offensive players that are good enough for Newcastle and that’s what we’re going to focus on.¨

“We’re not completely resigned on Remy, we’re working hard to keep him.” “He has been an important part of our season – if you take him away, we’ll need to replace him for sure.¨

¨We lost Yohan Cabaye in the Christmas period and that has been difficult for us.” “Our fans are brilliant fans – they are just frustrated and I understand that.¨

“Hopefully they understand that if we can put things right in the summer, we can come back stronger next year.”

The news before the game was that Alan Pardew would not be sacked by Mike Ashley,  and some news in the local papers late last night backs that up – that indeed Alan Pardew and his coaching staff, including locals John Carver and Steve Stone, will keep their jobs.

This season and last season have simply not been good enough, so we can only hope that we have an excellent transfer window this summer, and its going to take something like that if we are ever to become a  good side again.

And we would be absolutely stunned if Loic Remy is a Newcastle United player come September, but because of the awful performances this year and the anger and frustration of Newcastle fans at the moment, the powers that be at Newcastle, should be working their tails off to try to get Remy signed.

That would then be some really good news for Newcastle fans, if we can pull it off.

But the chances of doing that must be 10% – and even that’s an over-estimate.

What do you think?

    The deluded fans that believe we have any chance if signing Remy when he already said his farewells and has ambition to move to a too European team.

    The same deluded fans that think Pardew is the right person to take us forward.

    @Black and white with an army lol

    You should give it some time mate because given the right players Pardew is infact the man for the job he is as good as anyone else we could get.

    It all comes down to the summer we have. If we get good players in get the dosh out we could have a very good season next year.

    If not then we’re F****d and there is nothing more Pards can do for us.

    basically all things tat would damage his chance of getting attraction to the biggest buissness of all.
    plus show pictures of how he treated his work staff and remind them of what was shown on the BBC panarama show
    everything and anything that would damage his chances of customers coming to his shop.

    Pardew is the type of manager who would put Messi & Ronaldo in defence and have Bale as a keeper

    he would also beg that fat f@ck to give Shola a 200k a week wages

    James McCarthy is a workmanlike midfielder? Well I won’t insult you by asking if you’ve seen him play, but if you have seen his recent storming performance against Arsenal you wouldn’t call him workmanlike. The man is a top top player.

    However, good goalscorers are priceless, and for little over 10 million Bony is a steal.

    Considering Remy was spotted at the Arsenal match the other day (although Wenger was unaware), he doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of wanting to stay.

    Be a man Pardew. Admit he’s gone instead of trying to raise the hopes of the fickle.

    Black and white with an army lol That’s what i’m saying though give them a chance to clear out and rebuild this summer and if not then fire away.

    Although it’s fans like yous who put even more pressure on to sign and get rid of the skunks so carry on 😀

    McCarthy will be at that level and then some. He has performed at the top level all season, and has worked excellently with Gareth Barry. Easily worth £20+ million quid. When you consider that Everton sold Fellaini for £30 million and bought a player who was twice as good for less than half the price, you can see where speculating to accumulate as Everton have done in recent years can work out, even when you come to sell the players on.

    Everton do sell their top players, but only when they need to, and when faced with bids for their key men – like Baines last summer – they fight hard to keep them and offer them better wages to keep them at the club.

    That is the difference I see between us and Everton at the moment.

    Probably the truth that Arsenal will look elsewhere. Wenger likes his boys younger. So Remy most likely was just paying Sagna a visit. But who knows Sagna is said to be leaving Arsenal and maybe Remy was looking to take over his home.

    Anybody who thinks that Remy is staying here is daft. He’s away to the bright lights. The suggestion that there is a possibility of him staying is deceptive at a minimum. “Ol” Percy tries every trick in the book to con people.

    I completely agree, Arsenal can do a lot better than Remy. However, that doesn’t mean that he and his agents won’t try to engineer a move. If he wanted to stay, he wouldn’t have been at that match.

    Remy is just using us to get the best deal possible for himself whether it be at Arsenal or elsewhere.

    We won’t “get him over the line”. End Of.

    Sorry to see him go, he did a good job for us but that’s all in the past now.

    I just hope we don’t miss out on other targets whilst wasting our time chasing a shadow.

    Also keep in mind the Remy is injury prone. He’s played 26 times for us this year. This includes the FA and football league cup games

    Alan, you don’t even play players who are good enough. You leave them out of the squad and complain about this and that fron them.

    Yet, he’ll want his workhorses to look busy and chase down the broken cohesion of non existent teamplay.

    No chance will we keep Remy. Pardew is just feeding the gullible.

    The imaginary equator line was based on the length of Pinocchio Pardew’s wooden nose. The lies are appalling.

    I wouldn’t read that much in to it. Most football players enjoys both watching and playing football. A lot of them have friends in other teams and will go watch them from time to time. Ben-arfa have been seen on PSG games and so no harm in that.

    And a lot of times players look set to go before they gets a better offer and decides to stay. Remy situation is more complicated though and as 99% of the players he will go to the team with the best offer.

    Pardew 1st full season (5th) – no further words needed to explain
    Pardew 2nd full season (16th) – selective memory by many fans who complained it was a disastrous season. many people forgot our UEFA cup run to the quarter finals?
    Pardew 3rd full season – cabaye sold at the wrong time plus lack of offensive signings.
    squad regeneration is part of running a football club to keep playing staff competitive but the board has been so complacent

    in 3.5 seasons Pardew has always worked with his hands tied behind his back. even if he is sacked this month, his tenure at NUFC will always be regards as moderately successful.
    all the fans here throwing names in the hat are always on the bandwagon, last season people will say di canio, hughton, moyes alongside martinez etc etc. the truth is that NOBODY can predict future. most convenient to pick the relatively successful manager each season from other clubs and say we should have appointed him.
    Pardew is a replacable manager, but the simple truth is that nobody every knows what might happen to onfield results if the board has done their job recruiting wisely AND TIMELY to support the club in times of need. There will always be this unknown that if Pardew is supported fully what he may achieved, but of course our fans don’t seem to give a shit for that, they are too busy always looking at the more successful clubs every season green-eye with envy
