Loic Remy
Yahoo News - about 2 months
Loic Remy joined Liverpool on tour in USA and had been with Brendan Rodgers' side for around a week expecting to complete an £8.5m move from QPR to the Reds.  To the surprise of QPR boss Redknapp and Remy the deal fell through with Liverpool pulling out claiming he failed a medical due to a heart problem.  Harry Redknapp was disgruntled by the failed medical as he claimed "he had a stringent one here, one at Marseille and at Newcastle and with France before the World Cup. You couldn't meet a fitter lad."

Soccer-Villa looking to sign Chelsea's Remy in January, says Garde
Yahoo News - about 1 year
Aston Villa will aim to sign Chelsea's out-of-favour striker Loic Remy when the January transfer window opens, manager Remi Garde said on Wednesday, as he bids to secure the West Midlands club's Premier League status for next season. Villa, who are last on the table with just eight points from 19 games and 11 points behind safety, will hope Remy can solve their problems in attack, having netted just 15 goals so far in the league. "He is part of some players I am trying to attract to Aston Villa, for sure.

Remy backs Mourinho to halt Chelsea's slide down Premier League table
Yahoo News - over 1 year
Loic Remy insists beleaguered Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho remains the right man to halt the spluttering champions' slide down the Premier League table. Just five months after leading Chelsea to the title, Mourinho is fighting to save his job and the fixture list offers little respite for the under-fire Portuguese coach with Liverpool's visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday looming as another potential landmine. With five defeats from their first 10 league matches, Chelsea find themselves languishing nine points adrift of the top four in 15th place and, to make matters worse, they slumped out of the League Cup in midweek after a penalty shoot-out loss at Stoke City.

Mourinho mulls long Costa break
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Diego Costa may not appear for Chelsea again this season, Jose Mourinho has said, ahead of a summer fitness programme aimed at returning the burly Spanish striker to full strength. Costa is definitely out of the club's home game at Crystal Palace on Sunday, where a win will see them clinch the title. Costa will only play if they do still need a point to win the league against Liverpool next Sunday, but Mourinho confirmed Loic Remy was fit for the Palace game. "If we win Sunday, I would say he doesn't play against Liverpool.

Chelsea face striker crisis ahead of Arsenal showdown
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
By Tony Jimenez LONDON (Reuters) - Champions-elect Chelsea may have to go into Sunday's top of the table showdown against Arsenal at the Emirates without their three main strikers. Spain striker Diego Costa has only just returned to training after missing two games with a recurring hamstring injury while a calf strain sidelined France forward Loic Remy for last Saturday's 1-0 win over Manchester United. Didier Drogba featured against United but sustained an ankle injury that kept him out of Monday night's 12th Match Against Poverty, a game in St Etienne dedicated to the victims of the Ebola epidemic in Africa. "Disappointed not to be able to play the #MAP2015 because of an ankle injury but still supporting #EbolaResponse," said the 37-year-old Ivory Coast forward on his Twitter account.

City Six-pack Leaves Spurs Searching for Answers
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
For the first thirty minutes, I tried to be positive. The first goal scored by Manchester City against Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday came from what can be called a howler of a miskick by keeper Hugo Lloris, ultimately leading to a goal from Jesus Navas in his first league start for the hosts. ("Ultimately" might not be the right word here since it took all of 13 seconds for City to grab the lead.) I had a bad feeling when Younes Kaboul made a back pass to Lloris -- not the most promising way to start the match. Lloris's delivery of the ball to Sergio Aguero just outside the box invited an early shot, which Lloris saved, but Navas somehow curled the rebound into the top far corner. It was a nightmare of the beginning, but for the next half hour, Spurs looked the livelier team. Sometimes managers do read the papers, and it sure seemed as if Andre Villas-Boas had. Abandoning the inverted winger system with which we've all grown impatient, AVB put Aaron Lennon back at his fa ...

Spurs Suffer Home Loss at Hands (and Feet) of Newcastle's Krul
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Last week I wondered, should Tottenham find themselves locked in a scoreless draw with visiting Newcastle at halftime today, whether manager Andre Villas-Boas would abandon his 4-2-3-1 formation in favor of the attacking 4-4-2 lineup many supporters have been clamoring for against ostensibly lesser squads. With Spurs down 1-0 and substitute striker Jermain Defoe having hopped off the bench with Aaron Lennon to warm up five minutes before halftime, it indeed looked as if AVB might make this tactical switch. Instead, AVB made two like-for-like substitutions at the break, putting on Sandro for Moussa Dembele and Younes Kaboul for Vlad Chiriches (the latter change forced by a bloody nose suffered by the Romanian central defender). Spurs did come out looking revitalized in the second half and fully grabbed the momentum. Sandro was a marked improvement over Dembele, who continues to mystify with his lack of consistency. Fullback Kyle Walker did well in coming forward to link up with the a ...

Krul luck for Spurs as Newcastle win
Yahoo News - over 3 years
Tottenham Hotspur missed out on the chance to go level on points with second-placed Liverpool in the Premier League as goalkeeper Tim Krul inspired Newcastle to a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Loic Remy scored the only goal of the game in the 13th minute of the early kick-off match when, played in by Yoan Gouffran, he rounded Spurs keeper Brad Friedel before producing a composed finish. But that the Magpies, fresh from beating Chelsea, took all three points from this trip to north London owed much to a brilliant display by Dutch shot-stopper Krul, who produced a hatful of excellent saves. Among them were a fine effort to keep out Roberto Soldado's backwards header after he met a free-kick and an athletic effort when Krul going the wrong way after Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick took a huge deflection, clawed the ball away before combining with defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to clear Younes Kaboul's follow-up off the line.
