Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul is drawing attention form some big European clubs, but since his arrival at Newcastle in the summer of 2007, when Graeme Souness was manager, Tim’s been very happy on Tyneside, and even has developed a Dutch-Geordie accent.

Tim had a decent game but did completely miss a cross which caused some difficulties at one point in the game, and he’s been talking to the Shields Gazette today:
“We’ll just try to finish as high as possible,” “We’re just below the top teams at the moment. If we keep winning, anything can happen.
“We look at every single game on its own. There’s no need to look further than that. Stoke at home is another game for us.”
“You know what you’re going to get with Tony Pulis’s teams, especially in conditions like this.” “We had to be up for it, and we showed what a top-quality team we can be.”
“It was nice. It wasn’t just the back four, but also the midfield with Vurnon Anita tackling. I thought we were really solid, and when we had to play, we played.”
“It’s no point always kicking it long in this weather. We showed we can play.”
That was Newcastle 5th win on the road this season, so we now have to make sure we can also win our games at home – starting against Stoke on Boxing Day.
Newcastle have 15 points from our 9 road games this season, and 15 points from our 8 home games.
We are 13 points better off than last season at this time, and 3 points better off than two years ago.
Hopefully we will be 18 points from 9 home games on Thursday night, and that a sold out crowd is there to cheer the lads on.
