Tim Krul has been interviewed in the local press today and he says he’s happy enough with a point against Southampton, where former target Adam Lallana made all the difference tin the second half, and it’s a pity we couldn’t have signed this lad a year or so ago.
Tim Krul - Southampton had their chances
Newcastle are now 6th in the league table and are still 3 points ahead of Southampton, and this is what Tim said today:
“It was a good point, it keeps Southampton at a distance.” “Last year we would have lost this type of game, so I am pleased we took a point in the end.”
“Both sides had their chances.” “We had two good chances and they hit the post.” “They had their chances as well and Adam Lallana made the difference when he came on.”
“It could have gone either way.” “Now we have Crystal Palace away and it is a difficult game.” “It is also a game we look forward to and we go there with a lot of confidence.”
“You cannot win every game so I am pleased with a point.”
Next up for Newcastle are an improving Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon, and the lads can look forward to good support on the road, as always, as all tickets have been sold for the away section of Selhurst Park.
And it will be a tough game, because we will be expected to win the game, but Tony Pulis has Palace playing a lot better since he took over the manager’s job.
And they were a bit unlucky to lose 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, against a nervous looking Chelsea side.
