Latest Comments Leave Loic Remy Future Still Up In The Air

7 years ago

The latest comments continue to leave the Loic Remy future plans up in the air.

The striker moved on to ten goals with two against Stoke but as to beyond this year it is more of the same, with Remy noncommital on where he seems himself next season.

The striker though has yet again restated how much he’s enjoying himself on Tyneside and has said he feels ‘very confident’ playing for Newcastle;

“I’m sorry – at the moment I do not know (where his future lies).

“The President of QPR might want to keep me next season and I also miss the Champions League, it’s a very special competition.

“Next season I could play Champions League again, we will see what happens – if I stay here or if we play in the Champions League.

“Since I have arrived (at Newcastle) I feel very confident, maybe it’s the stadium or it is the magic. When I came I was told I would be surprised as the atmosphere is so loud and I said, ’Ok, come on’!”

At Newcastle we haven’t had that much experience of the incoming loan market with Mike Ashley always looking at it as a bit like renting a flat/house instead of buying it IE paying to increase the value of somebody else’s asset.

However, with no transfer cash made available and Newcastle desperate for a striker, we have found ourselves seeing the good/bad sides of loan moves that many other clubs see regularly.

The mackems have had a host of loan players over the years and indeed under Steve Bruce at one time had five first team loan players, plus they have already agreed yet another loan deal for January with Alonso coming in.

Further up the food chain you see tomorrow’s opponents West Brom dropping like a stone without Lukaku’s goals

Whilst again taking things to extremes, one of the Premier League’s most prominent teams, Everton, have this season relied on three loan players in their front six and arguably their best players at that – Lukaku, Barry and Deulofeu.

As for Newcastle, we have a striker who looks on top of his game scoring goals for fun who looks very unlikely to be at St.James’ Park next season, while our big signing/wages number nine sits on the bench week after week.

Sadly an indication of the fragile nature of short-term success for both Newcastle and even more so, Everton.
