loicremy1When Loic Remy moved from Nice to Marseille the deal was initially brought to a halt when during the medical it was discovered the player has a heart defect.

However, after further tests the player was passed fit to continue playing football and subsequently completed his move.

When assessing the player for insurance purposes it is alleged there could be issues to be ironed out relating to insurance.

The heart problem is rumoured to be a factor in putting off clubs such as Arsenal and Spurs who have been linked with Remy in recent times.

Newcastle have of course gone down the route of taking calculated gambles on players who were either injured when we bought them or who had ongoing injury worries.

Demba Ba’s much talked about ‘knee problem’ has proved to be certainly no barrier to his success on the pitch at Newcastle.

Hatem Ben Arfa eventually made a full recovery after United completed his permanent transfer, while the player was still recovering from his shocking double injury of a broken tibia and fibula.

On the other hand the signings of Dan Gosling and Sylvain Marveaux have brought little or no return for Newcastle’s investment.

Mike Ashley looks to have come out on top so far with this calculated risk taking on certain signings, will Loic Remy prove to be another Ba/Ben Arfa?

Considering Carragher was given a misleading question I think he did well to come back to the real problem, thre is no money reinvested in the team by the current regime.

Although if 'Geordie' John left as a result of a boycott all well and good

Personally, I think it was whoever asked the question in those kind of terms that needs to be shot . .

Think he's right, simply put if Carver had beaten the mackems and won just two other games some cracker jacks would be calling for a knighthood for the geordie hero.

@No Brainer No doubt some are that small-minded.  However, most take a wider view.  Many of the Mackems on the Ready To Go board flatter themselves that all this is just fallout from the derby defeat.

As usual, they are quite deluded.

"that appears to be in the culture of the club at the moment."

The most important part of his answer, the most important part of the club that needs to change and the most important part of getting the club performing how it should be.

At the end of the day, we really can't the quality of journalism at Sky to be up to that produced by enthusiasts from The Mag.


Fair play to the whining Scouser, he does make some decent points in response.
