Newcastle Star Player Back in Dutch Squad


Tim Krul has played well in his two games back for Newcastle since recovering from his elbow injury he picked up while training with the Dutch squad.

Tim Krul – in good form after injury spell

So it’s not surprising that Tim has been recalled to the  34-man Dutch squad for the upcoming international friendly against Germany on November 14th.

Holland will will be without one of their other goalkeepers – Swansea’s Michel Vorm  – for at least a couple of months, after he  picked up an injury at Manchester City on Saturday.

Just before Tim was injured he revealed he had been told by Holland manager Louis Van Gaal, that he was now the Holland number one goalkeeper and preferred to former number one – Maarten Stekelenburg of Roma

The Netherlands were beaten 3-0 by Germany at the Euro 2012 tournament, and will be trying to get the upper hand in this game.

Here is the 34 man squad:

Goalkeepers: Kenneth Vermeer – Ajax, Maarten Stekelenburg – Roma, Tim Krul – Newcastle, Jeroen Zoet -RKC

Defenders: Daley Blind Ajax, Douglas – Twente, John Heitinga – Everton, Ricardo van Rhijn – Ajax, Nick Viergever AZ,Ron Vlaar – Aston Villa, Gregory van der Wiel – Paris Saint-Germain,Jetro Willems – PSV,Bruno Martins Indi – Feyenoord, Daryl Janmaat – Feyenoord, Joris Mathijsen – Feyenoord, Stefan de Vrij – Feyenoord

Midfielders: Ibrahim Afellay – Schalke,Jordy Clasie – Feyenoord, Urby Emanuelson – AC Milan, Marco van Ginkel – Vitesse, Siem de Jong – Ajax, Adam Maher – AZ, Kevin Strootman – PSV, Rafael van der Vaart – Hamburg, Nigel de Jong – AC Milan,

Attackers: Luciano Narsingh – PSV, Bas Dost – Wolfsburg, Eljero Elia – Werder Bremen, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar – Schalke, Dirk Kuyt – Fenerbahce, Ruben Schaken – Feyenoord, Jeremain Lens – PSV, Robin van Persie – Manchester United, Arjen Robben – Bayern Munich

    Happy for Tim, although there was no reason as to why he wouldn’t be picked again. Let’s hope they look after wor Timmy whilst he’s away. Have been impressed with Harper and Elliot, but would always rather have our number 1 between the sticks.

    OK if we are discussing alter-ego’s who are Ashton and Deadpool? I thought the latter might be beattie but he was more humorous. Ashton seems to be a long-time poster from another blog having a bit of a holiday on here insulting everyone who doesnt agree with his set-in-stone ideas.

    Been a bit of a spiteful feel to proceedings of late with some of these characters.

    We missed Krul a lot when he was injured. Our defenders look much more assured with him in goal instead of Harper. He brings a much needed calming influence, he is also very vocal which helps the players in front of him. And he isn’t afraid to get out and catch long balls and by doing so he relieves all the pressure on our players. Which is something Harper never does. Harper is so quite and on many occasions he doesn’t look interested in even diving in order to save the ball!! He just stands there with his hands on his waste looking lost.

    People here don’t realize how good Krul is. He is on his way to be the best and most complete GK in the world. He isn’t there yet but he has all the tools and quality to achieve that.

    Yeah their are some uninformed fans who are criticising his kicking. In the 442 he is being used as our main play maker by Pardew! And he kicks the ball so much more than any other PL keeper that when he misses up one or two they have the audacity to criticize him. His kicking is fine (and it’s better than Cassillas imo) and his passing is excellent but we never get to witness that. But whenever he has played for Holland he has rarely ever wasted a ball because he passes it rather than hoofing it all the time. Majority of our fans are oblivious to this though.

    Ashton the majority of fans are well aware how good a keeper Tim Krul is and his distribution for Holland may have something to do with the fact they play out from the back !

    @dunaneek, nice formation, but i think this would be more balanced:

    ——————————Krul—————————

    ——————–Colo————Saylor—————

    Santon————Bigi———-Perch——–Jonas

    ———Benny————Cabaye————-Fergie

    ——————————–Cisse———————

    Good wingbacks, skilfull and quallity wing forwards, creative attacking midfielder and one box to box midfielder EPL standart and CDM capable of doing his duties. Defense pair is solid too.. Keeper is as good as always. For me the only question is Cabaye. if he could find his form we’ll win.

    back up plan:

    subs: Obertan IN, Jonas Out (Fergie LB), Sammy IN Perch or Bigi Out, And Shola IN for Cisse if he doesn’t score in 75min..

    —————————Krul—————————-

    —————–Colo————–Saylor—————

    Santon——————-Bigi—————–Fergie

    —————-Benny————–Cabaye———

    ——Obertan———–Shola————-Sammy.

    IMO,
    Santon, Jonas and Fergie are much bigger threat going foward (and with that in mind opposition has more questions – easier to defend). Santon, Jonas and Fergie can defend as well as Simmo if not better. Santon could cause more problems crossing with his right foot, over lapping benny who cuts inside to shot with his magical left. Jonas is a good Left Wing Back wich tends to cut inside, he can take on his man, or by cuting inside create some space for fergie to put a nice cross. Cabaye could pass a through ball two cisse as well as dictate the tempo of the game with his range of passing. Perch and Bigi in my eyes are good pair to have protecting cabaye’s back. Cabaye also usually defens well. I really would like to see my formation against liverpool. I stated my case so i’d like to hear something from you (Blog Readers and Writer). Thank You.
