There´s A Hitch With Possible Remy Loan Deal

3:42 pm, Monday, January 25th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 38 Comments

The Northern Echo is reporting today that there is potential problem with a potential loan deal for Loic Remy of Chelsea, and that´s because Newcastle are not interested in signing Remy on a permanent basis because of his age and his high wage demands.

Loic must be getting huge wages at Chelsea and if he moved he would want a similar wage packet, which Newcastle would be unwilling to pay.

Loic Remy inaction for Newcastle two years ago

We´re not exactly sure what the problem is exactly, other than Ashley doesn´t like to sanction loan deals that don´t have an option to make the move permanent.

So in this case why not just do the loan deal – because Loic wouldn´t want to join us in any case – we have to remember he´s already turned us down twice.

It’s very likely that once Chelsea finalize the deal for Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato, they will let Loic move out on loan.

And having Loic on loan for six months would be a great solution for Newcastle and for Loic – because he would be motivated to do well so he can make the French squad for the Euro 2016 Championships in France in June.

And he would be playing for a club that has a very high profile in France and the reports are he would be willing to come to the north-east on loan.

Sounds good to us.

What do you think?

    Just get him in, we need a striker that can score. Can’t afford to mess about or stick with what we’ve got.

  • 2 catchy in norway // Jan 25, 2016 at 3:46 PM

    High profile in what way, big club? Or just a club that only buys French Players

  • 3 SuperShearer // Jan 25, 2016 at 3:51 PM

    Seems a stupid enough reason… either BS or, given this club’s dealings, utterly believable.

  • 4 welshgeordie9 // Jan 25, 2016 at 3:55 PM

    We need to get players in otherwise we are going down, it’s as simple as that, so the three stooges stop pissing about get the players in, if you don’t then you each deserve a firework up your arses, that’s the only way do get you muppets motivated.

  • 5 Jib // Jan 25, 2016 at 3:57 PM

    It’s the usual transfer window hoo hah.
    It’s on – It’s off
    He’s coming – He’s not
    It’s a buy – It’s a loan
    Sky sports loving it

  • 6 welshgeordie9 // Jan 25, 2016 at 3:57 PM

    Considering we haven’t really been linked with anyone, don’t think we are going to sign anyone.

  • 7 lesh // Jan 25, 2016 at 3:59 PM

    Ok, so if there is potential problem with a potential loan deal for Loic Remy and that´s because Newcastle are not interested in signing Remy on a permanent basis because of his age and his high wage demands – then surely Charnley can think of a way around this? Pay Remy on a performance bais perhaps?

    Do these clowns not realise that.the amount at stake far exceeds the money they’d pay someone who scores the goal we’re not getting – scored the goals that save us from relegation!

    It appears that they’re concerned more about upsetting the sodding wage structure than relegation!

    And, if SD actually paid for its damned advertising, there’d be money available to pay the wages that good players command.

    Is there anyone out there that can kick some sense into Charnley? Does Ashley actually appreciate what’s at stake here? Is he happy to risk losing tens of millions for the sake a relatively small sum now?

    These people beggar belief!

    I’ve been blogging this point about Remy for ages. A loan deal would be ideal. More important would be to buy two top class defenders now because we are leaking goals badly. Personally I would prefer a Remy loan deal and scrub Berainho for now because he is lacking match practice after sitting on the bench for so long. Townsend, again not playing any first team games so he must be ring rusty and worth no more than £11m. Take your pick !

  • 9 TroubledToon // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:11 PM

    Fcuking Hell!!! Our PL status is on the line and yet these idiots are haggling over a few mill!!! OMG!! Speechless

  • 10 Tsunki // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:23 PM

    I think the major hitch is there isn’t a deal.

    Blackley from previous, spelling checker for SM? gladly, although if it means sorting through his tacticles I might pass.

  • 11 toon kk // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:24 PM

    I think the inept people running our sad football club needs to seek professional advice from someone with a football brain.

  • 12 Jib // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:31 PM

    Back for Lacazette

    ‘…We need to get players in otherwise we are going down…’

    You could have said that after the last game of last season.

    We got players in during the summer and given the relative positions between last season and this season it is argueable that the summer recruits have not made us any safer.

    So in other circumstances if you continue to buy things, thinking that this is the solution to the problem, but the problem remains do you persist with the same course of action or do something completely different ?

    If the new recruits in the summer couldn’t change things why assume that the winter recruits will ?

    The league table doesn’t lie. It is no coincidence that the three teams that escaped relegation last season are the three teams now facing relegation.

    If we go down we may become the most expensively constructed team to do so in the history of the Premiership.

  • 15 lesh // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:40 PM


    You know as well as most that there’s no way Lacazette’ll arrive

    The press is churning out this crap at the behest of Bullshit Bishop in the hope that’ll it’ll pacify the natives who are fast becoming restless.

    Now if you believe the Torygraph in this, you need to give yourself a shake to recover your senses.

  • 16 Tsunki // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:43 PM

    There seems to be nobody at the club who understands the concept of ‘throwing good money after bad’ sadly.

  • 17 SuperShearer // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:44 PM

    Telegraph saying we’re back in for Lacazette after player’s reps said he could be open to a move if the money is right. Club rumoured to be willing to make him one of our top earners to secure the move.

  • 18 lesh // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:45 PM

    It seems that Harper’s been getting abuse after signing for Sunderland.

    What are these clowns thinking of? FFS, the lad spent years with us but the idiots clearly don’t see that he didn’t sign for us because he probably wasn’t approached!

  • 19 nightfa11 // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:47 PM

    I think we’re after Lacazette, cos we want to send thauvin back to france.. The only place hes rated.. But the bid would probably be close to 18 + thauvin..?

  • 20 AncientC // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:48 PM

    The problem seems fairly obvious, Chelsea would prefer to sell rather than loan Remy out. This is the Ba situation all over again – Chelsea didn’t loan Ba out either. Chelsea only loan out players that have a future at the club.

    Apparently Chelsea have a 1 in, 1 out policy, because of the amount of players currently on their books.

  • 21 SuperShearer // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:48 PM

    @Nightfall – I don’t know enough about Lacazette but he seems highly rated by Carr. Not that it says much these days. We need a goal scorer, clearly Thauvin isn’t happy here and not sure he should be given he said he wants to play centrally. 18+ Thauvin for this fella might not be the worst deal in the world.

  • 22 hibbitt // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:50 PM

    the press haven’t got a clue they feed on scraps just like us they love to have a dig at all things ashley we just happen to be one of those things

  • 23 hibbitt // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:53 PM

    harper is getting as much stick from the mackems as our clowns are giving him what set of twats

  • 24 AncientC // Jan 25, 2016 at 4:57 PM

    I wonder if Charnley and the Brain Trust remember why Remy joined us in the first place – something to do with not wanting to play in the Championship.

  • 25 croftus5678 // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:01 PM

    chelsea fans dont understand where these links are coming from apparently !

    why would they let remi go when they only really have costa as a striker who’s injury prone.

  • 26 Charlie in the Gallowgate // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:03 PM

    For crying out loud stop arsing about and get Remy – he’s a proven Premiership goalscorer and up to speed unlike Lacazette who could be anything and cost a small fortune.
    bloody idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 27 Blackley and Brownlie // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:05 PM

    Holy Jesus, is Remy the limit of old man Carr’s imagination? All roads lead to Remy.

  • 28 AncientC // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:07 PM

    How about offering Chelsea a deal.
    £2 million loan fee if the club goes down, then Remy returns to Chelsea. If the club stays up, give Chelsea £1 million more than an agreed valuation. That would cover all the bases.
    There is no risk of Championship football for Remy, and Chelsea get a fee or a sale.

  • 29 angelswithdirtyfaces // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:13 PM

    Banjax @ 8

    spot on

  • 30 Blackley and Brownlie // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:14 PM

    Carr’s scouting book would shrivel in a flash in old Blackley’s woodburner.

  • 31 FozNUFC // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:14 PM

    consistency in football is the key and we just haven’t got it or had it for the past few year now

  • 32 Moonraker15 // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:15 PM

    Remy is pushing for the move as Pato is coming in and he needs to be playing first team because of the Euros selections. I think he e would like the French connection at Toon. Will the three stooges be able to broker a deal?

  • 33 croftus5678 // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:16 PM

    do a swap with napoli for higuain 😉 and give them sissoko.

  • 34 croftus5678 // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:18 PM

    @32 moon

    i’d put my mortgage on him not being able to leave until they get a striker in if they get a striker in.

  • 35 Moonraker15 // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:19 PM

    Well if it’s a question of “couldn’t get him over the line” this time it’ll be followed by, “just couldn’t stop us falling into the Championship”. This could be Wally’s last big job and a good item on his cv.

  • 36 Ravostag // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:37 PM

    Get Bamford and bring Arma back proven goalscorers from a lower division but both better options than Rivilino and .Met ( couldnt hit a barn doir)rovic

  • 37 padthemag // Jan 25, 2016 at 5:48 PM

    So we pass on some players and risk being relegated because of a mil or 2 here and there but blow 24 mil on a couple of French pussies I seriously don’t understand this club ?????

  • 38 Lynxie // Jan 25, 2016 at 8:55 PM

    Great shout.
