loicremy1When a transfer saga drags on as long as the Loic Remy one has, you almost lose the will to live, never mind retaining any excitement that the deal will actually happen and the player will be a success in the event that it actually happens.

The Mail is now reporting that Newcastle have had a bid for Remy accepted, claimed to be £10m.

I think we’ve seen a few too many false dawns to make any assumptions that the transfer is over the line but…

When transfers like Papiss Cisse happen out of the blue, you don’t have time to look at whether it looks like it is going to be a decent signing.

With Remy we are having plenty time, far too much, to have a look at what Newcastle are apparently chasing.

On the one hand you have a striker who started 51 matches but scored 27 goals for Marseille in the last two seasons, then you have the player who has had injury problems and isn’t currently first choice, starting only 2 games this season.

The likes of Arsenal and Spurs have shown past interest with Harry Redknapp quoted £22m when he was at White Hart Lane, so if the player showed his previous form a £10m price tag for a readymade goalscorer could be seen as a relative bargain in today’s mad transfer market.

Maybe Remy will have been waiting for if a deal eventually goes through but one thing is for sure, Newcastle are desperate for more players on the pitch with goals in them, starting with a must win match against Reading next Saturday.

We’ve featured this video compilation before from The Mag’s YouTube channel but Remy does look a quality finisher, so well worth a look.

Think it's wrong to be critical of the supporters who go to the fans forum. I'm sure they ask relevant questions but it's difficult to get blood from a stone. Minutes of meetings are a summary of what was said, not a detailed record.

My only disagreement with what has been tabled is the wording of C) which asks for a committment that Carver will not be head coach next year. Very few would want Carver as head coach but the question is unanswerable at this time, they won't commit to yes or no, they will say what all organisations say in these circumstances, nothing has been decided yet. My belief is if 'Geordie' John's cunning plan works and we get relegated he will get the job, stay up he won't.

can the Fans Forum point out that Hughton was removed because he did not have enough experience. 


Surely any appointment of Carver would be contrary to that stance, i.e. he hasn't got a clue!!  We need reassurance that we have someone already  lined up to start the transition from the end of the season as an absolute minimum.


I would want reassurance that we aren't going to waste millions on average players when we panic in August and will instead do our business early to get the team up and running before we even play our first friendly matches!!

Thanks for the support Jackie, just a small correction, we have never allowed ourselves to be used as 'propganda' by the club, we have fought our corner at every meeting on behalf of the fans who are the best and deserve the best.
