24 year-old Tim Krul is just one of the players who have had a fantastic season for Newcastle.
Tim Krul – great season – second in the Player of the Season voting
Last summer Newcastle were even thought to be possibly fighting relegation this last season once Kevin Nolan, Jose Enrique and Joey Barton left the club, but right from the start of the season and an 11 game unbeaten run – Newcastle have been up and around the top six.
To finish in 5th place above both Chelsea and Liverpool is some achievement indeed, but now we have to keep that up next season.
Once Danny Simpson was injured Tim Krul came the only ever-present Newcastle player in the Premier League this season, and although he was disappointed about Sunday’s result, finishing 5th top was just great:
“I’m disappointed about Everton, but will go away and over the next few days think about it all,”
“It’s a shame the way we finished the season because it wasn’t good, but I think that we will realise quickly what a fantastic season we’ve had.”
“To finish fifth in the Premier League has been beyond our wildest dreams. It’s immense, but it doesn’t feel like that right now.”
“It’s been incredible this season. After a disappointing display it’s difficult to realise that but we will do as the days go on.”
“Fifth in the Premier League is something to be proud of and I will make sure I brag about it this summer!”
Hopefully our players will get sued to doing well, season in and season out.
And next year the official target probably has to be a top four position, because that’s the only way to improve on this season’s 5th position finish.
For the record Tim played 42 times for Newcastle last season, and in total he has made 76 appearances for the Magpies.
And Tim Krul has done well in the Player of the Season voting and is currently in second place behind captain Coloccini.
