With Steven Harper returning to full fitness there will soon be some competition with your Tim Krul, as to who becomes the number one goalkeeper on Tyneside.
Steve Harper – nearly back to full fitness
Tim Krul has performed admirably fin the Newcastle goals since Steve was injured at Everton , and the Dutchman has played 14 consecutive games since he came on at Everton, and has conceded 27 goals in those games.
Tim talked today about Steve coming back, and this is what he had to say:
“He’s been out for three months now, and he’s back.” “The competition’s going to be on now.”“This is what I’ve been waiting for, and it’s what Harps has been waiting for.”
“It’s going to be a nice competition. I owe Harps a lot, but we’re going to fight for the shirt.”
“The banter’s always there – when he’s looking after me he’s always got a cheeky thing to say. That’s the relationship we’ve got.”
“It’s going to be good, and I just hope I can keep performing with the team and get the points on the board.”
“I’ve always said the Premier League’s the best in the world.” “Every week and every game you learn so much. You have to be sharp every second of the game.”
“Even in the 94th minute they can do something. The Premier League’s the best, and hopefully we can stay there.”
Of course we also have another top goalkeeper, who Newcastle fans haven’t seen too much of – 22 year-old Fraser Forster, born in Hexham, who is currently on loan at Celtic.
Fraser stands a massive 6’7″, and has now played 15 times for the Glasgow giants so far this season.
Fraser Forster – in action this season for Glasgow Celtic
And as we mentioned earlier today, that is after starring for Norwich City last season, when he made 42 appearances for the East Anglia club, and was second in the voting for Norwich Player of the Season.
So rather than have a vote between Steve and Tim, we’ll also include Fraser Forster, even though we haven’t seen the youngster much playing Newcastle colors.
Each reader has just one vote – so let us know your opinion – thanks.
