Report – Chelsea Offer Loic Remy To Newcastle


There´s news today that Newcastle have been offered an opportunity of signing former striker Loic Remy on loan from Chelsea.

The news is in the Chronicle and it´s that Chelsea have made Loic available to the Magpies, but we also know that Alan Pardew and Crystal Palace are after him.

Since he signed for Chelsea 18 months ago Loic has never been a starter at Stamford Bridge and does not get much playing time.

But he wants first team football to try to make the French squad for the Euro 2106 Championships in France in June.

Maybe the Chronicle has some inside information about this since Guus Hiddink recently said this about the French striker:

“He is our player, we are not going into that.” ‘We need all our players until the end of the season.”

“You know as much as I do, Chelsea is still in a position where they have to improve a lot to go up the table; we need all the players for this moment.”

”We don’t go into rumors.”

Well, Guus doesn´t exactly flat our deny Loic could go out on loan this month.

The problem we have with this news is that Yohan Cabaye is at Crystal Palace just down the road from Stamford Bridge.

And it must be enticing for Loic to move to Palace and play under Alan Pardew again – and maybe even set up a permanent deal in the summer and sign on at Palace permanently.

However, Loic could do a job for us at Newcastle right now, and getting him on Tyneside on loan could even be the difference between staying up or being relegated.

Loic could surely get us some goals that we are severely lacking at the moment.

The 31 times capped French Intentional was on loan at Newcastle the season before last and scored 14 goals in 26 Premier League appearances for us.

Loic turned 29 on Saturday.

What do you think?

    santon what you seem to be missing is its not SM who makes the decisions its down to carr and charnley……one other thing how many games have you seen arma play either on tv or live to asses him so highly or is it fifa / football manager you base your opinion on ????

    If its a choice of Riviere or Remy its a no brainer.As stated before not a long term fix but he will give us goals which we are so desperate for.

    Chelsea’ll have made Remy available for loan and thus will’ve notified all clubs – not just us!

    Forget it, it ain’t gonna happen – unless Charnley’s told to spend what it takes to get him!

    Maybe going against the grain a bit but I’d rather him playing for than against us.He’s also been offer to Swansea,Norwich & Villa…all teams that we need to take points off.

    based on how well he has done.
    based on he will work as hard as Vardy.
    based on his goals are better quality than Vardy, he didn’t just hit the ball as hard as he could like Vardy.

    January window is always difficult, you will have to pay much more than summer window for the same player, unless you are going for fringe players. I would rather see Arma than fringe players from other clubs.

    Based on those.

    transfers in: probably not SM call
    transfers out: yes, it is SM call unless someone will hand us another 35million for single player whoever it is.

    Has Makro lost it? Why’s he bigging up Giroud? Why’s he talking up Riviere?

    Ashley really ought to be pressing Charnley to explain why we’re not scoring goals?

    If he did, ge might just deduce that the £52m he spent this summer went in the wrong players. We needed an experienced striker, a second and proven CB as priorities yet Carr brought in Thauvin!

    Our problem lies with Carr who’s bringing in the wrong players. Rebuilding a team’s much like building a house – you just don’t go buying materials willy-nilly, buying window frames when there’s no bricks to build the wall!

    Carr’s the problem, he’s the reason we’re in the mire.

    Mr Negative

    Don’t answer this just give it a few moments thought.

    You are Loic Remy and you really want to play in Paris for France next Spring.

    Who would you pick to put yourself in the limelight.

    A club with a magnificent stadium where you are guaranteed a start and 50,000 have chanted your name before , or Crystal Palace or Norwich ?

    If we don’t sign anyone and carry on with the same players then Championship beckons simple.If we cannot even compete for loan players then we are going down.
    I don’t believe for one minute that’s what Ashley wants especially with all the money on offer from next season.
    I do think it will be hard to attract quality players due to our perilous position at the bottom end of the PL, But they have got to try otherwise we are down

    Blackley, he’s bugging up Riviere because has been told that he’s got a striker so he must use him. Charnley won’t have a clue whether he’s any good or not but Carr’ll be protecting his own back and convincing Ashley that his buys are good and the weakness is the HC who’s not using them properly.

    Stupid comment by Steve regarding giroud, not sure what he thinks that will achieve. On rviere though I think that’s good management, giving the lad confidence so he’s raring to go, I’ve never wanted a bloke to succeed more than rivvy tbh he works so hard.

    This wijnaldum no10, sorry to sound antagonistic but I’m fairly sure at the start of the season people were complaining when he was in that position saying he was getting lost and we needed to play 442? So why now the hate saying it’s only taking Steve 5 months to play h correct, when he’s just reverted to what we were slagging him off for earlier in season

    If I were Remy I’d want to go to a club that’s doing well and in the limelight for the right reasons – winning more points than losing ’em.

    Total boll@cks. Ashley can quite clearly see as any football fan can that Riviere was a bad signing. He was never played predominantly as an out and out striker anyway, As he was often deployed on the wing.
    Its glaringly obvious we need a forward, Even if Cisse was fit !!

    santon so by that answer you haven’t seen him play the kids 18 learning his trade at a good club with a good manager playing games and scoring goals and you think he’s way above the prems leading scorer the kids good and will get better but not what we need at this time we need a proven prem goal scorer not bringing a kid home to sit on the bench for 5 min cameos we need a quality goal scorer to get us out off this mess vardy would do nicely

    That’s why Remy went to Qpr at the bottom of the Pl then. He definitely chose the limelight there didn’t he ??
    Remy is nothing more than a mercenary and will choose the best financial package available as well as guaranteed regular football

    I query the Riviere comment because it’s folly to suppose we can hang our hat on him. Charnley and Carr have ballsed up royally. We told them after their summer spending spree what would happen.

    Some guy at the Fans Forum was shut down by the club saying they’re not looking at the mistakes of the past; they’re looking ahead. They’re now paying for their arrogance. It looks like they’re floundering but we’ll see. It’s a sad indictment if they have to turn to Remy at this point. I’m not sure their arrogance would allow them.

    I think that’s the issue isn’t it? Is Steve saying to build his confidence, or is he saying it because the club want him to pull the wool over our eyes, and all is rosy we don’t need x y and z. If so it certainly proved they have no regard for our intelligence, or there own incompetence

    Nobody is denying Remy went to QPR for the dosh but he came on loan to us as soon as.

    The worrying thing is the Liverpool knockback supposedly on medical grounds .

    There arrogance is long over due pal. Ashley and his band of merry men are to far up there own backsides to admit mistakes have been made.
    Was it Ashley who stated that from now on we will make our own luck and success.
    Well Mr Ashley take a look at the League table and tell yourself your staff are doing you proud !!

    3rd 4th or 5th time lucky?

    He doesn’t look interested at Chelsea and I can’t see that changing with a move to us, he’ll stay in London IMO.

    I’d take him in loan until end of season but that’s it and only if we couldn’t get our real target over the line 🙁

    Just watched the True Geordie. He’s spot on. That defeat was not unlucky. Also he points the finger at, among other things, our 34 year old captain.

    Great speech in Pav’s memory at the same time as a rallying call to the players. I’d rather have him manage the team than Makro. Can you imagine him and Charnley in the same room for an hour? I’d pay good money to see it.

    santon i am being realistic the kids not ready bringing him home would just be an excuse not to buy/ loan a more experienced player there are players out there and carr will know them but we wont pay the money if we go down there’s a good chance we will be down for a long time and how much will that cost us in tv money

    The trouble is we’re now relying on the skill and expertise of the same short sighted moles who got us into this mess to get us out. At a time when the ripe fruit has long since fallen to the forest floor and been stored by clever squirrels.

    I’ve long thought True Geordie would be amazing for our dressing room. Imagine if you didn’t put a shift in and had to come in at half and full time!!! Damn sight more useful than the strutting Steve Black. Hardly helped QPR and us has he.

    The reason they won’t tell us what lessons they have learned is that we won’t like them.

    They said lessons had been learned after Pardew’s Europa League season and near relegation, but didn’t expand on what they were then either.

    However, subsequent Charnley pronouncements suggest they believed their mistake was in not overruling Pardew’s determination to give the Europa League challenge a decent go, and thereby threatening our league survival.

    If you look at what has actually been implemented this season, then it would appear that the lessons learned were to take Ashley out of the fans’ firing line and to make it it clear to the media that the head coach is no longer of sufficient pay grade to except questions on a wide range of club related issues. Meaning no-one now has to.

    Why would Remy come up to newcastle to get his first team football in readiness for the Euros when he can go to Palace?

    Never in a million years will Remy come back here when he can stay in the same house he lives in now and play his football for another premiership club 5 miles down the road.

    Dream on

    If we manage to get Remy it will be a very good acquisition. He will definitely want to be in the France squad for the Euros, especially with French strikers performing well in Ligue Un competition is tough. Expect him to give his all each game for a goal if he plays a run of games till the end of season.
