Tim Krul Injures Shoulder Saving Penalty

Tim Krul’s chances of progressing in the Scottish Cup were ended last night when Falkirk were beaten 3-1 by Aberdeen, in a 4th round replay.


Tim Krul – 6’2″ goalkeeper injured saving penalty last night

Tim has been playing well in Scotland, and is well thought of at the Falkirk club. He’s so far made 21 appearances for the Scottish Premier club. He made an excellent save from a penalty near the end of the game last night, but in so doing he was injured. It’s a shoulder injury, but we’re not sure how serious the injury is.

We don’t know how long he will be out for, but Falkirk manager John Hughes is hopeful he can make a quick return.

John Hughes said after the game:

“It’s very disappointing. I really feel for him, it was a great save from the penalty, and fingers crossed it’s not too serious,”

“We’ll all support him and hopefully he makes a speedy recovery.”

Tim will miss a match where he would probably have been quite busy, as Falkirk are due to meet Celtic at home on Saturday.

Let’s hope Tim can make a quick recovery and get straight back playing for Falkirk, where he is gaining very valuable experience this season. His loan spell runs through the end of this season, and Tim is another one of our talented up and coming youngsters at the club.

Comments welcome.

    thanks guys – i’ve just read keegan statement saying smith and butt are back for the FA Cup and Viduka might be on the bench should his injury clear up.

    With that in mind, I guess the team will be :

    Carr Taylor Cacapa Enrique
    Milner Butt Nzogbia Duff
    Owen Smith

    No doubt, Smith and Butt will pick up their usual yellow cards.

    Pandev is brilliant, great just behind the front two, advanced on the wing or as an out and out striker. I think he is best when just behind the front two.

    Defintely worth the 11.2 mil quoted, he will add an extra dimension to our attack and link well with the midfield.

    Pandev would be good!..But what about playing Carroll on sat, while he’s got his shooting boots on, then we could bring Smith on l8r, if we need someone to kick people & get yellows!?!..

    Punk Skunk – These days you have to pay £11m+ to get a good player. And Pandev is a great player.

    By buying Pandev he’s trying to recreate the Tino Asprilla signing.

    Sometimes it works (Berbatov).

    Sometimes it doesn’t (Luque).

    If there is truth in this deal then it means the Ashton one must be off (same kind of player).

    The most enouraging thing about this is that it means Keegan is looking abroad for talent too, and not just the PL.

    Yea, but we seem to have got into the habit of waiting too long…But also, some. hardly worth mentioning, players don’t get into good positions ’til it’s too late!.. But i defo feel the likes of Owen would prefer early ball!..
