Are Newcastle After Loic Remy?


It’s probably a sign of the times that Newcastle are not one of the clubs going after Chelsea’s Loic Remy, who has decided after winning a Premier League title and the League Cup in his first season at Stamford Bridge that we wants to get more playing time at another club.

Loic Remy – not interested in Newcastle?

Newcastle went after Loic Remy last summer after he had spent the season on loan with us from QPR, but it became clear that he just didn’t want to sign for us.

One reason for that was Newcastle selling Yohan Cabaye a year last January – ambitious clubs don’t sell their best players half way through the season and nor replace them.

So it was difficult to sign him last summer and he was almost signed by Liverpool but failed his medical there and now clubs like Swansea, Southampton and Crystal Palace are interested in signing French International striker.

Swansea and Southampton finished above Newcastle last season, and that’s one reason we have to get back into the big time next season and try for a top eight position in the league.

If we are do that we have to sign some top players this summer.

The 28-year-old striker is said to be on £80K/week at Chelsea, but with the big money available to Premier League clubs these days, that should not be a deterrent – although it may be to Newcastle.

It’s also entirely possible that it was made abundantly clear by the striker last summer that he didn’t want to come to Newcastle, and we don’t want to waste the summer going after him and failing to get him, which is essentially what happened last summer.

That’s maybe while we will not bother this summer with Remy and go after other strikers – such as 25 year-old Charlie Austin and 21 year-old Patrick Bamford, and that also helps with recruiting more Englishmen to the Newcastle squad.

What do you think?

    Can you imagine Remy and Cabaye at CP, Rotunda and catchy would be leaping off their respective local high bridges.

    repost;

    JFA- A gambler of the cheapest kind. He only gambles on him spending the bare minimum to make him win big.

    To win big you have to spend big!.. any proper gambler knows that!

    What Ashley is, it’s not a gambler but an arrogant, lying, greedy billionaire that only wants more and more money. That’s no gambler but a money hungry fool, that just happens to be a billionaire! Only Newcastle could have the misfortune of that happening.

    Newcastle should try their best to get the signature of Danny ings or pay the 15 million pounds for charlie Austin.he is worth the gamble.

    There’s no point going after the likes of Remy and cabaye who do not want to be here.

    I have to say I have totally gave up with Newcastle now, we are always promised so much yet always receive so little, if anything at all.

    The fans forum were promised a meeting that never materialised, and the fans in general promised big changes that would see us being more competitive.

    But when you omit the rubbish in the papers what exactly have the club said? Oh yeah that’s right….Nothing!

    On Remy I think it’s just lies lies and more lies, though the mercenary would certainly beef up our strike force and has plenty of EPL experience.

    Well that one got afew hits ed nice work .
    Jail ,
    From previous agree he is the consummate gambler looking for that high.
    Love to see him sat at the ultimate roulette table (think the deer hunter )
    Two real bullets in the cradle
    Charnley. Stone ash carver lambias and of course no party is complete without Dennis wise.
    Two from six are odds he will like and it’s a win win for everyone in my opinion

    Remy has seen at first hand what a tin-pot operation NUFC is. Unless he was offered ridiculous money there’s no way he’d be back. A supposedly “big” club basically being run by Mike Ashley, Lee Charnley and Graham Carr? You’re having a laugh. Might as well be the Marx Brothers…

    Ed’s churning ’em out so quick, it would now appear English is his second language. So many mistakes.

    I’m also sick of reading when the manager will be announced. Do you have a mystic ball Ed? Because if you do, it doesn’t work. Last week you said, he will be announced at the end of the week, then at the end of last week it was the start of this week, now it’s ”probably Wednesday”. Why not just leave it out, you have no more of an idea about it than Tom, Me or ‘Arry.

    Next thread….

    If Hull ask for too much with Robertson, then our alternative should be Luke Garbutt who’s on a free, English and bags of potential.

    We should try and steal Virgil van Dijk from under the mackems noses as well

    Cudda been a relegation-fighting hero like Jonas but Remy threw it all away for baubles like the Premiership title and a League Cup….he must rue the day he turned his back on Mike Ashley’s Toon.

    I don’t believe we’ll sign a single player who is actually wanted by any other Premier League team. Any decent player who has a choice would surely go anywhere else rather than descending into the sewer that has become Newcastle United, and having to associate with all the rats the club has attracted.

    On Jack Colback. Your theory that Colback wasn’t in demand because, according to media outlets, only West Ham and Newcastle were at the negotiating table. Look at Ings who may well be off to Liverpool. Just because Newcastle and a whole host of other clubs are not at the negotiating table for him does not mean he’s not a good player.

    Why are we being linked with players we haven’t even approached and won’t approach?

    Championship players we will be linked with because we are getting a Championship manager.

    I said Ayew won’t come because of wages.

    I said Austin won’t come because of valuation.

    I said Ings won’t come because a better club will offer him more ambition.

    Need I go on?

    If we want Austin we need to get him asap, think 12mill with add ons will be enough.

    If we don’t end up with him, it will be interesting to see who we go after. Not sure how much he’s worth but Alberto Paloschi would be worth a look.

    Don’t really want players like Dost and definitely don’t want Gayle!

    JamesToon, I know a couple of Everton fans and they rate garbutt very highly, the general opinion is he will become better than Baines and needs signing up long term. He’d be a great signing and we’d have a left back who can cross too!!

    The club would be crazy to let Tiote go especially considering how poor our central defenders are.

    I look forward to seeing a fully fit Tiote on the park next season in beast mode.

    Remy is a proven striker, however:
    He wanted out. For bigger pastures.
    He is often injured.
    We want players who are committed to make THIS team great
    Skip.

    That Chelsea guy: too expensive, has anyone seen him? Is that all 10 mil will get you these days?

    Hopeful squad next season:

    GK: Krul/Darlow/Woodman

    RB: Janmaat/Richards
    CB: Taylor/Lascelles
    CB: van Dijk/Dummett
    LB: Garbutt/Haidara

    CM: Sissoko/De Jong
    DM: Tiote/Anita
    CM: Colback/Hughes

    RW: Aarons/Ameobi
    CF: Austin/Perez/Carroll
    LW: Phillips/Cabella

    Solid top 10, within our finances. Those are players who i think would give it their all. Finished product players mixed with potential
