We have to say we like Tim Krul a lot – not only because he’s a great young goalkeeper in the making but he just loves being at Newcastle, and of course he just signed a four year contract extension, to stay on Tyneside.
Tim Krul – great young goalkeeper in the making
And Krul himself seems well pleased with the signings that Chris Hughton has made so far this season, and he has today given a long interview with the Newcastle Journal.
Krul told the Journal:
“We have made cracking signings.” “We have kept the squad together, no one has left except Nicky Butt – whose contract expired this summer.”“Most of these boys know what to expect in the Premier League and everyone knows we have a point to prove.”
“That is the biggest feeling I am getting from the dressing room at the moment. We also signed players in January like Wayne Routledge, who will be a great signing in the Premier League.”
It seems that Tim is most excited by the arrival of Sol Campbell, one of the best ever England central defenders, and the young goalkeeper thinks his experience will be a massive plus for youngsters like himself.
“Sol’s stats say it all. He has played almost 500 (Premier League) games and that brings composure.”
“He can show the younger lads like me just how to stay composed at certain times.”
“It is always nice to bring an older pro in to keep the squad tight. We were short defensively with Steven Taylor being injured.”
Tim is right and Sol can be massive positive for the many youngsters we have on Tyneside at the moment.
After all this man has been through it all, played for England and played well by the way in the World Cup Finals, won a PL Championship with Arsenal and done about everything you can do in top class football.
And of course Sol has so far played a total of 635 first class games, and in addition has played 73 times for England.
As we said this man has done everything – and now he can help the Newcastle United club big time next season.
Howay The Lads!!
