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.

They were f*cking rubbish…a disgrace to the shirt…Alan tells it exactly like it is, and the fault lies with the coach…

...there’s no discipline being shown to the defenders by an outfield skipper, and that’s also down to Collocini,  who should be the coaches enforcer, on the field!!.

...We would all have accepted a defeat, but not a total capitulation like this by a bunch of c*nts who couldn’t give a f*cking  sh!t.

...note...  ( * =u, != i)

@wor monga Yes mate, would have accepted a defeat if we had played well and tried, it happens, but to surrender AGAIN in the same fashion is not acceptable!

McCalamity will take us down if he stays on.

Where is the fight,desire,application!?The work rate is dire - no closing down,not tracking back quickly enough,I could go on.

I hate to predict this,but Newcastle,Villa and Norwich will go down,and the Mackems will stay in the PL - they seem to have the fighting spirit that we totally lack.

This was a car crash waiting to happen with this totally ineptly-run club!!!

The laughing cavalier is a dead duck now, hated that smiling interview, the bloke just does not care or know what he is doing, no its both! Taxi for the Brolly!

The only salvation that I can see is get Rafa Benitez in this week, he did a great job a Chelsea last year as interim manager, strange Hiddink is doing the same this year. We need Rafa to keep us afloat because we will definitely go down under the Brolly. Pathetic performance yesterday totally unacceptable!

Yes Mr mclaren 7 away goals all season worst in every lge in wngland. He said the other day our problems away from home were because we played on the front foot he's clearly lost the plot. Time for him to go.

Go for Gary Monk now.

If the worst comes to the worst and we're relegated at least we have a young hungry manager in place.

I sometimes think that clubs sack the manager to quick, but enough is enough. He's not smiling for the camera cos he's happy, he's smiling cos he's lost and doesn't know what to do or say.

McLaren's face in the post-match interview, laughing it off, will stick with me. I was so angry after that, like I have been in most away games I've attended the last few years and to laugh about it. Wtf is funny about that you d*ck?

The team merely reflects the club. No pride at any level and no direction other than to the bottom line. Any business needs a culture sadly ours is one of apathy / self promotion and cynical disregard. Some will cry support the team clearly a one way process. Fans fork out £200+ for yesterday's surrender while our brave warriors scuttle off to their sunny jolly. Makes you swell with pride
