Loic Remy will be on loan at Newcastle United for the 2013/14 season.
This has been one of the most tortuous transfers of all time and let’s remember he’s still not really our player.
He also has a Rape allegation hanging over him with no confirmation either way whether he will face charges or not. There is cause for serious misgivings about this lad for that reason alone.
I think we are all suitably grown up and cynical to realise that all footballers are complete mercenaries so we aren’t about to get sanctimonious about him doing the dirty for stupid money from Tony Fernandes in January. There are few footballers who would have done anything differently.
For what its worth, he’s a good player. He will improve the squad.
While the powers that be at St James’ Park might be slapping each other on the back, the fact remains a lot more business needs to be done before confidence will grow ahead of the season.
Now get back to work. The Gomis deal needs to be sorted and pronto.
See enclosed, some lines outside the East Stand. Yesterday.
