Remy Gets The 8 Months Itch

8 years ago

I had to laugh the other day, which isn’t a bad thing as the new season hurtles towards us.

It is funny how players can do something that turns round to bite them on the backside not long afterwards, typical of this are the badge kissers who swear undying loyalty before getting a better offer elsewhere…

Our latest (loan) signing had never kissed the NUFC crest before but I laughed when I read an interview the striker did with the official club website, it began – ‘Loic Remy cannot wait to experience the St.James’ Park roar’.

Hmmm, well he wasn’t exactly rushing to hear it back in January was he?!! Preferring a taxi to Loftus Road rather than a plane to St.James’ Park.

Swayed by the ‘exciting project’ at Rangers and the roar of the fifteen thousand fans at Loftus Road.

I don’t want to be the harbinger of doom but while he’s a decent goalscorer, the Remy deal must surely come with a very big health warning.

As I say he chose to go to a club that were already relegated rather than Newcastle, the bottom line is he is a loan player and not even ours, plus we don’t even know when we wil get to see him play as in all the interviews and quotes they neglected to tell us he was currently knackered and hadn’t been able to train for almost a month.

Until Alan Pardew blurted out that Remy was knackered after Rangers, we were relieved that just in time we would have somebody to relieve the goals expectation on Papiss Cisse in these vital opening matches. All of the above is without even mentioning possible court appearances he may face,

Forgive me if I don’t see Loic Remy as our short, medium or long-term saviour.
