Newcastle Fans Still Want Loic Remy On Tyneside

We now have over 6,000 readers who have voted in our poll, on whether Newcastle fans think Newcastle should still sign Loic Remy this summer.

Loic Remy – in action for Newcastle last season

While it’s clear that Remy is after big (huge) wages – whichever club he eventually signs for – it still seems that fans would be willing to let bygones be bygones, with two in three fans still wanting to see him end up on Tyneside.

And there was news today in the local papers that Remy could still arrive on Tyneside, but Newcastle would need to pay him  massive wages to entice him to come to Tynesdie on a permanent basis.

It seems that our prime striker target now is Alexandre Lacazette of Lyon, but deal(s) could still be done by Newcastle at the last minute in this summer’s transfer market, and Remy could still make a move to Newcastle, where he would be playing in front of 52,000 fans at St. James’ Park.

There again, if he gets more money at QPR, he could stay there and play in front of 17,000 fans at Loftus Road.

So it really depends on what Loic Remy’s priorities are, and we all know he has chosen QPR over Newcastle United once before.

Should Newcastle Still Try To Sign Loic Remy?

    Not everyone Ed…not everyone 😉

    Who were being smug and said we were spending money this window?

    …well fair play if it happens – I’ll gladly be wrong on this one, but as of now we haven’t really spend money – replace players without spending and maybe bought two players from Nottingham who we won’t have at our disposal this season.

    Spend what needs to be spend on a prolific goalscorer and a physical CB and I’ll gladly say I was wrong 😀

    He clearly wants the London lifestyle. Get someone in who actually wants to be here.

    How desperate must we be to keep trying to buy a guy who clearly doesn’t want to come to us…it’s embarrassing!

    Agreed Jesper, I don’t want him either. Whilst I always take what players say when they sign about being honoured etc and badge kissing with a pinch of salt, I certainly don’t want anybody who blatantly does not want to sign for us either.

    Not sure what matches you’ve been watching. Saylor is an absolute shocker. Horrendous positional sense, no speed, easily turned. Should really have been got rid of along with Shola. Saylor always talks the talk but is a major liability.

    You sort of get the feeling with Pardew that he’s considered integral to whatever stage of development we’re at and so he keeps his job when in other circumstances he wouldn’t.

    But people do get sacked or moved on under Ashley when their time comes and you feel as though with Pardews contract being that much less than it was, and with a deeper more balanced squad at his disposal that he will now be under greater pressure to deliver results and entertainment.

    Strangely, the better the squad and clubs situation, perhaps the more precarious his job becomes.
    – – – – – –
    Interesting comments from Jimmy there, but didn’t quite understand the ” Pardews contract being that much less than it was.”

    Does it not still have 5/6 years to run?

    Rubbish? You’ve never stepped into Gaza, look up the history of Israel…everything I stated is a fact do some research before you speak about matters where you only see one side of the argument…I commend Barton for what he said

    Do we still want Remy lads? I know I don’t like him or want him…maybe he could go and watch Arsenal play?

    He cannot choose QPR over Newcastle, if Newcastle do not agree a transfer fee for him.

    I find the ‘looking down ones nose’ at QPR rather distasteful, some people even remarking how they would love to see QPR go down again.

    QPR have an ambitious owner. Most of us have been crying foul about Ashley’s lack of ambition, but then when QPR have an ambitious owner they get berated for it…

    Remy came and played on loan, saluted the fans during goal celebrations… then after leaving; NUFC have been unable to agree a transfer fee to enter into talks with the player… that really is all there is to it.

    “…then after leaving; NUFC have been unable to agree a transfer fee to enter into talks with the player… that really is all there is to it.”

    Not really is there is to it because it’s just not true.

    We knew the asking price for Remy last summer; when we took him on loan.

    We’ve had the fee on the table at QPR which had to be accepted as it met his asking price.

    We were one of a few clubs after him – He chose Liverpool due to their Champions league qualification.

    That deal fell through.

    To suggest we simply havent had a bid accepted and have been unable to speak to him is cobblers.

    He wants 80k a week to come here.

    He was willing to take 60k a week to sign for Liverpool.

    That’s why the deal hasn’t happened!

    I agree with Percy on this one.
    We have our own self respect and wont go begging for Remy.
    He knows we want him but has shafted us over and over again.
    Time to move on. IMHO

    And you wouldnt score a single goal with 10 Obertans.

    This has nothing to do with Ben Arfa. I said he replaced Obertan, clearly because Obertan is Pony and Ben Arfa can create.

    So he’s had a decent pre season? So what. Did he not do that the season before last also? And was he completely pony when it came to EPL games? Aye!

    If we can’t sell him then fair enough, he stays in the squad. But don’t talk tripe making out like he’s anything other than one of the least affective players in a competitive league.

    I’m going to go off topic here.

    But there is still a major flaw in the way we play.
    It’s honestly so worrying as well.

    We’re still getting bullied by a tricky number 10 that hovers in between the lines.

    The amount of times a 20 yard ball is fizzed in between the lines, with the 2 DM’s not intercepting it.
    CB steps out, 90% of the time Coloccini, he then gets turnt with ease. Then there’s the hole. A gaping hole with a good no.10 & 8/10 times they’re going to find that killer ball.

    You see it happen with teams like City, but Kompany is a presence, when he runs out to get the ball, he’s getting the ball, he’s not getting turnt.

    It happens time & time again.
    Very worrying.

    In all fairness it was just media hearsay that we had a fee agreed wasn’t it?
    Or was it confirmed?

    Anyway if it’s not going to happen move on to the next target, Pardew seems to of closed the door on the deal anyway

    On the Pearce article
    Think it’s a bit harsh to say he was dead against them joining us Ed, he just seems aggrieved about the fee, also given how highly rated the two players are think he had to say something to keep the peace amongst the fans!
    He’s got them back for the season would be great to see Physco mount a promotion push and get Forset back in the league

    T.T.V.V.T. – we have not agreed a price with QPR to sign Remy on a permanent basis at any point, unless I am mistaken.

    You said:

    “We knew the asking price for Remy last summer; when we took him on loan.

    We’ve had the fee on the table at QPR which had to be accepted as it met his asking price.”

    Where are you getting this information from?

    Beats me how such a majority of visitors to this site would like to see Remy back. If the votes were made by 6000 individual votes then it’s great this site he’s so many followers. Can we assume that voting’s limited to one per subscriber?

    However. Yes Mr Remy’d be welcomed by me but only if he clearly expressed a sincere desire to commit himself to and play for Newcastle United by way of a permanent contract.

    He hasn’t and has had plenty of opportunities to do so!

    Remy’s burned his bridges and for me, we should just forget him and let him ply his trade where he thinks he’s welcome. Let him rot at QPR and go down with ‘Arry, somebody who’s impressed him.

    Steven Taylor: is unquestionably S#IT and of course he should be replaced with experienced quality if we are seriously trying to improve the team THIS season.
    Obertan: I believe is only putting in extra effort and being ‘bigged up’ by the club because he is in the shop window and needs to move on ASAP.
    Remy: has shown his true colours, they are not Back’n’White. Time to stop pussyfooting and splash the cash on a big name, quality striker before the Real game on Sunday.
    This will see teams start to fear NUFC again and dread visiting SJP. It’s been a LONG time.

    do we have no respect or decency for ourselves as a club or fans
    if he doesn’t want to come and play in front of real fans let him languish in front of small gates and jellied eels

    Can you really blame him for wanting a real coach, a bigger club , and champion s league? I dont expect him to suddendly loves us and all, and Idgaf, I m sure he will score a lot of goals for us and that s all we need. Look at last year, can you possibly want to play here if you re a class player and ambitious? Come on…
