It’s hardly surprising that Newcastle’s number one goalkeeper Tim Krul has told Sky Sports that he is fully committed to Newcastle United
Tim Krul – happy at Newcastle
Tim has often said, in his eight years on Tyneside, how his dream is to be both the Newcastle number one and the Dutch number one goalkeeper, and he achieved the first goal just over two years ago, and is getting close to achieving his second goal.
Tim is a very good goalkeeper, and he’s been linked with clubs like Arsenal recently, but Tim he has no wish to leave Newcastle, and he had this to say to Sky Sports News:
“What the papers write I don’t take notice any more, I have got a four years contract at Newcastle, I’m really happy,” “I love playing for this club, so I just focus on myself and getting a good season this season and then hopefully going to the World Cup.”
“It is my second home, I have been here eight years now, it’s a second home and second family. Playing in front of 52,000 Geordies is a fantastic feeling and I don’t think many clubs can beat that.”
“The first game of the season against City, was a hard game and everyone knew that – they have brought in a lot of top quality players and we knew it would not be easy but after that we kicked on.”
“But then Hull City and that was a missed step and we have to take it on the chin, but we gave it away really.” “Sometimes you have to take that hit and it’s perhaps a wake up call as you can’t take anything for granted.”
“We are ready now, it was a mistake and we are looking forward to Monday.” “Two years ago we had a fantastic season, but unfortunately we haven’t had a good season last season – but they are a good example and somewhere where we want to get to.”
Tim Krul represents the type of player we want at Newcastle, somebody who’s completely committed to the club, and who has a Dutch Geordie accent.
Hopefully the lads can learn from what happened last Saturday against Hull, as Tim says, and if they can make that an example of what we cannot do again this season, then it will have served its purpose.
There was passion and commitment missing from too many Newcastle players last Saturday, but it was a decent recovery against Leeds on Wednesday night in the Capital One Cup, and a good result.
Now we need a good result at Goodison Park on Monday night, and then we’ll have some momentum again.
