In these difficult times for all Newcastle fans it ‘s the young lads at the club who are providing a little bit of fresh air as they commit their futures to the Newcastle club.
Tim Krul – committed to Newcastle United
That happened recently when young Shane Ferguson signed an extended deal at the club, in spite of significant interest from both Celtic and Rangers.
And yesterday Tim Krul has again said he wants only to be the number one goalkeeper at Newcastle.
Newcastle United’s 21 year-old Dutch U21 goalkeeper Tim Krul has dismissed speculation that had previously linked him with a move to Arsenal.
Speaking to the local Sunday Sun yesterday , Krul pledged his support to Newcastle:
“My aim is play in front of 52,000 Geordies.”
“Of course there will always be interest from other clubs but I want to stay here. To get a chance to play for a club like this made sure I’d never be homesick. I feel like a Geordie now.”
“I’m starting to talk like a Geordie,” “It’s a great city and a great club.”
“To go down was horrendous, but we are looking towards the West Brom game.”
“This is a big season for me. We have three goalkeepers fighting for the [number one] spot and we need all of us at the club with forty odd games to come.”
“I just have to be patient and when the manager Chris Hughton needs me, I have to show him I’m ready,”
There’s something special about the players who come out and pledge their allegiance to Newcastle, even though the club is in a sorry mess, a really terrible mess right now if truth be told.
And to do that in a Geordie accent is even better of course.
And it’s those players we must look to in the future to put the pride and passion back into the club, which will surely rise again from the almighty mess brought on the club by the completely inept and hopeless Mike Ashley.
Mike a good businessman? As the California Governor would say – “Get out of here!”
It’s leadership to hear words coming out of our youngsters in these tough times, and Newcastle fans will not forget those players who stand by the club in these very very difficult times.
But we’ll come back from this – make no mistake about that!
Howay The lads!!
