NUFC Dodge A Bullet With Mercenary Loic Remy 'Failure'

We all got excited at the seemingly imminent transfer of Loic Remy after agreeing a fee of 10 million Euros with his club Marseille. Now that QPR have stepped in and high jacked this deal by simply offering the lad more money, this blatantly shows what type of footballer he is. A mercenary.

The last thing we need is a mercenary to join our cause in our current predicament, we're not interested in mercenaries, we want players. Proper players. A player who knows that playing for Newcastle United is an honour and isn't to be sniffed at lightly, that knows how big our club is especially compared to the tiny shambles that is Queens Park Strangers and a player who recognises the possibilities our football is capable of despite our current league position. Loic Remy is none of these things it seems.

Let's be honest we've only just got rid of one blatant mercenary in Demba Ba, to replace him with another one would be damaging long term. We went through transfer speculation hell with our No.19 and I don't want to go through that again with another 'big time charlie'. It's not fun for anyone associated with our football club. Give me a Papiss Cisse type of character every day of the week over a Demba Ba. I am sure we will find a worthy 'replacement' by the end of January. Hopefully someone with character.

Seriously what kind of a footballer would even consider playing for the worst team in the Premier League and absolute shambles of a footballer club in QPR when he has the opportunity to play regularly for Newcastle Utd? What does this say about his character? So he will be earning twice as much money at QPR and will have a release clause in his contract for if they go down. Congratulations Loic, your agent will be happy with you.

Plus there is his record this season with 3 goals in 22 appearances, albeit just the 10 starts, doesn't exactly scream 10 million Euro signing. He is not even a starter for Marseille, never mind star striker. He got 12 goals in 29 games last year, which again, isn't a must buy. Then there is his heart condition which isn't exactly a good thing. The man does not suggest he is guaranteed to inspire a change around in either of the clubs involved seasons. £8.3 million and £80,000 a week. Really? Remy has even been suggested as the number one transfer target to be avoided in some sectors here

In my eyes we have definitely dodged a bullet on this one and should be thanking old flappy face on this occasion rather than slate him. He can have him. If Remy is motivated by money and being able to jump ship for free if his club goes down, feel free to break the bank in signing him. We don't want him. We want a player who would laugh at the choice of joining that circus and be more than content at earning £40-£50k per week whilst playing in front of 50,000 passionate fans. Instead of 18,000 cockneys having a nice day out slating their failing team, then banking his completely over the top wages whether his team wins or loses without any care whatsoever.

Good luck QPR with your latest signing. Harry Redknapp was spot on when he said, "I'm not interested in breaking the clubs bank to bring in players" and "There are players here who are completely overpaid and don't care about the club. They are taking this club for a ride."

He says what he means and means what he says does honest Harry...always a man of his word. Triffic!

    1. Easy to say sour grapes. Truth is if this transfer took another twist and he failed his QPR medical, I wouldn't want him.

  3. The rumours are that Ashley was going to make him the highest paid player at NUFC. If that is the case then it cant just be the money? Marseille will get Joey barton as part of the deal for nothing no doubt. Marseille and Joey are the big winners.

  4. Sour grapes as i said.The other writer is spot on,what a load of twaddle you write.Why resort to calling us names if it's not jealousy?
    Yeah we get 18,000,so what,and also we ain't Cockneys,get your facts right.
    I remember a time when your team would be lucky to pull in over 10,000 fans.

    1. Wasn't calling you names, just making the point.

      Don't take it personally. Someone 'calls' us a bunch of Geordies we dont take it personally.

  5. spot on Bano
    It makes you wonder why so many bench warmers
    stay at their clubs
    It's not for the love of the game
    it's simply down to money
    saying that the Agents are the worst instigators

  6. Well done, just slag off another team cos a player you were hailing takes one look and doesn't want to play for you! Just cos you get 52,000 fans doesn't make you a big club. Ask yourself, if somebody offered a job that paid a lot lot more than you are earning now what would you do?

    Oh yeah, and you need to learn to spell

      "Ask yourself, if somebody offered a job that paid a lot lot more than you are earning now what would you do?"

      I'd think, there's something dodgy about the deal,
      done it before, left it and was proved correct

  7. So a player turns your club down to go to another,you resort to slagging the club and player off? How dare he not join the toon army! Grow up

    1. Wasn't slagging you off. Truth is QPR have been a shambles of a team this season. If you don't think you have and haven't called your own team the same then you are lying.

      This isn't personal. Truth is I couldn't give a flying f*ck about QPR. This isn't about you, it's about Remy.

    2. For gods sake grow up, if you as a footballer were offered the same job at two different clubs, one for forty grand a week, the other for eighty grand a week that gives you a get out clause if the club is relegated, you mean to tell me you would go for the lowball bid.
      Not to mention one is located in London, the other in the remote provincial north east.
      Hey it's a no brainer !
      Do you still also believe in Santa Clause and the tooth fairy,
      mercenary my ass.
      Going for the money is what makes the world go round.

  8. Hope the "Mighty TOON" get relegated pathetic club with fuck all history, 1953 since you won anything? massive club my arse!

  9. Quite hypocritical when Cabaye joined us for more money, he left the French champions, chance to play in the champions league for a team in the bottom half of the premiership who played terrible football. Where would we have been if we'd not signed Cabaye who was moving for money?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Erm no. Cabaye joined us because he wanted to play in the Premier League and recognises the size of our club. If he was money motivated he would have left in the summer. In fact if he was money motuvated, he would never have come here.

      I'm sure Cabayes agent would have no problem finding him a Champions League club...

  10. "cockneys" are born in earshot of bow bells, i.e.east London not west London. Like someone from Newcastle being called a mackem

    1. When will London folk learn that nobody gives sh*t about all this cockney technicalities. Makes you sound a little pathetic.

      ...and seeing as Newcastle & Sunderland are two entirely differently cities, that argument adds to the nonsense.

      You're from London? Cockney. Or Londoner if we 'technically' give a sh*t.

  11. Well it makes you sound a little ignorant, don't you think?

    1. No not in the least. The world does not revolve around London. I know it's difficult to lose site of this when you live there, but at least try.

      The 'this is what you should actually call us' just makes you sound arrogant and completely unlikeable.

      If someone calls you a cockney, just accept it. Nobody wins when you fight it, especially you.

  12. Not at all,I personally don't mind one way or another being called a cockney,just thought I'd clear the above argument up

    1. So why say anything in the first place?

      I chose to use the work cockney. Just like you can choose whatever word you would like about myself. Within reason obviously...
