To arguably dominate those two games for long periods, says going forward we have more than enough but as we saw against QPR it’s the fear of losing to the poor teams around us that will define our season.
Previously there have been reports from journalists close to the Ashley regime claiming that Newcastle would be in a position to announce a new signing as soon as the January window opens, with Remy being the name put forward.
This is why the January window is so vital. Newcastle’s defence has been stripped to the bone. This year’s midfield is the ugly sister compared to last year’s Cinderella– with Cabaye and Ben Arfa out until the New Year, there is precious little creativity.
While Alan Pardew has ruled out a move for one of Vurnon Anita’s former colleagues, twenty year old winger Jody Lukoki, he has confirmed that Newcastle are interested in signing Marseille’s striker, Loic Remy.
Reports tonight claim that Newcastle United have agreed a £10m deal with Marseille for Loic Remy. This story has gathered pace in recent days and rumours of one of Newcastle’s players, allegedly Sylvain Marveaux, also going in the opposite direction.
What’s the problem here? Why are we being cautious in the situation we’re in? This season is the single most important there is in terms of income because if we’re not in the premiership next year we miss out on the biggest financial deal ever for Premiership clubs.
