This Newcastle Player Has Sense Of Purpose – Wants To Score

France face a very tough second leg tie against Ukraine on Tuesday night in Paris, to qualify for the World Cup next summer in Brazil, and they will need to score at least two goals in that game to have any chance of qualifying, after losing the first leg 2-0 in Kyiv on Friday night.

Loic Remy scores again for Newcastle

In that game Matthieu Debuchy was one of France’s best players,  blocking at least two goal bound shots in that first half, and he has today praised his Newcastle and French team-mate and striker Loic Remy, who has scored 7 goals for the Magpies in just nine appearances for the side this season.

This is what Mathieu said today:

“Since Loic came to Newcastle, we are really good.” “He scored again last weekend at Tottenham Hotspur, he moves and fights a lot. This is an intelligence, he has a sense of purpose and he wants to score, which is important for an attacker.”

Loic is on a season long loan at Newcastle,  after he turned us down for QPR, of all cubs, in January – after they offered him huge wages to sign for them.

And the better Loic plays for Newcastle the less chance we will have of signing the striker in the summer, since some big clubs are already taking notice of his Newcastle goal-scoring form,  in one of the toughest football leagues in the world.

Let’s see if Remy can help make it competitive on Tuesday night for France in Paris,  against an extremely solid and under-rated Ukrainian side, who have won nine of eleven games this year, drawn the other two, and not conceded a goal in the last eight games. 🙁

    We are really goin to miss debuchy against norwich. They have got that redmond whom is a good player. Against santon? Who cant defend! If redmond plays well he could well have a field day.

    Off topic but what are the odds of a 6-0 germany win?

    They didnt offer him ‘huge’ wages, they offered him pretty much the standard rate for a top international striker unfortunately we can’t seem to match that, hence international strikers will want to move elsewhere.

    @2 jail for ashley

    completely agree and with remy there is proof of it hence the qpr choice.

    sadly i dont think we have anywhere near enough money to sign him in jan anyways (so our very slight advantage is gone imo) i’d be suprised if we spent more than 2mil in jan tbh.

    England play Germany on Tuesday, I didn’t know that, why would the dick posting in number 1 wonder what the odds on a 6-0 thrashing be.

    Do you think Ashley’s wage policy will be reviewed in the light of the new TV money and wage inflation for top international quality strikers or will we continue to shop in the bargain basement (Shola level) ?
    Not sure that makes sense but you’ll get my drift…

    Really not sure, there really doesn’t seem to be any logical train of thought at the club, all depends if Mike can understand and not get frustrated.

    Continue to shop at the Shola level?

    Last three strikers bought – Ba, Cisse, Goffran + we all but signed Remy and now we’ve taken him on loan.

    How is that shopping at the Shola level?

    For those who missed the game, debuchy and remy were horrible
