Newcastle Goalkeeper Could Push For Move To Bigger Club


Newcastle are said to have targets this summer in France, Holland and Spain, and we suppose that list included Germany until we missed out on German U21 striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga last week, when he finally signed on at Hamburg.

Tim Krul and Louis van Gaal after the penalty shoot-out win
Kiss me honey honey kiss me


Tim Krul has captured the news around the world in the last day after his heroics in the penalty shoot-out on Saturday night against Costa Rica.

Tim moved the right way for every single one of their five penalties and magnificently saved two of them – while Holland converted all four of their penalties, and they went through to meet Argentina in the semi-finals.

The other semi-final is between Brazil and Germany, and the host country will be without their top star Neymar, who was injured in the 2-1 win over Columbia, when he fractured a vertebra.

Newcastle may bring in more players from Holland this summer, after our successful acquisition of Siem de Jong, and the Holland number one right-back Ricardo van Rhijn is one player Newcastle are seriously considering bringing in to replace Mathieu Debuchy.

The news is that Newcastle have salready poken to his agents, and Ricardo is keen on a move to the Premier League, although other clubs are also interested.

One question is whether Tim Krul will push for a move, to get away from Newcastle to a bigger club this summer, since at the end of last season he seemed to be just a little bit fed up at Newcastle, and of course we had a terrible second half to the season.

But Krul still made the World Cup squad for Holland, and although he’s not a starter in the team, his heroics in the shoot-out against Costa Rica will mark him as a Dutch hero, especially if Louis van Gaal can get Holland to win the World Cup for the first time ever.

And before the World Cup some top European clubs had shown an interest in Krul, and his heroics on Saturday night will only enhance his reputation as a top goalkeeper.

We hope Tim will stay on at Newcastle, but it’s becoming very worrying that have some of our top players wanting to leave the club.

When that happens there’s something wrong somewhere – and with good clubs you get players wanting to join them – not wanting to leave at the first opportunity.

Comments welcome.

    It was only last week that it was reported that Krul and Anita had some influence in convincing De Jong to come to Newcastle.So why all of a sudden want to leave?
    He saved two penalties…That’s his job.

    So he and Vurnon ANita convince SDJ to come here, and then go away. Strange!

    You could also possibly add Daryl Janmaat according to the Mag

    @Slank Is this story different to the one a week back? last week we heard Mr Pedulla say that Napoli have ended their pursuit but Newcastle are ahead in negotiations; though I do not remember him saying that we had finalised a deal.
    Anyway, will believe it when he is here with shirt in hand!

    From http://www.alfredopedulla.com/

    “Agreement in principle reached, after the signing of the World . The Newcastle feels pretty safe for Daryl Janmaat , the exterior of Feyenoord . There had spoken in recent days, there is no other news except that the black and white we must wait until the end of the festival in Brazil. But the Newcastle believes he has crushed the competition: the Naples had thought, and then he released his grip, the Manchester United made ??a simple survey. ”

    Has some legs then.

    I really don’t know. It’s the first time I have seen it and yes when they hold up the shirt I will believe it.

    By the looks of it, it seems our Mr Carr has been spending some time over in Holland.

    Looks good especially when it comes from the agent and not a newspaper.

    Daryl Janmaat will be very welcome. Looks like the chefs at the training ground may have to ditch French cuisine and start learning about Dutch cuisine. Lots of Boerenkoolstamppot, with rookworst.

    Sissoko would be a massive mistake to let him go, i dont care how much we are offered
    Debs can easily be replaced but Moussa is a whole different ball game

    Why would Krul want to leave us?

    Money? Trophies?

    According to notable and renowned Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, Manchester United target Daryl Janmaat is set to join Newcastle at the end of the World Cup. The story has also been relayed by TMW.

    There were earlier rumours that the new Red Devils manager Louis Van Gaal who has guided Netherlands to the World Cup semi finals, was keen to take the right back along with him to Old Trafford after the player’s dazzling show in Brazil.

    Italian side Napoli were also interested in the 24 year old before the World Cup but any such deal with Janmaat’s current club Feynoord failed to materialize. However it is now believed that Newcastle United have reached an agreement in principle after holding talks with the player’s representatives. However the Magpies have been told to wait till the World Cup gets over.

    Better tell the chefs to forget about the Boerenkoolstamppot, with rookworst and stick to the Bœuf bourguignon and of course frites for Steven, for the moment.

    Now if we really are not varying from our list of supposed striker targets, given the ones who’ve snubbed us, I guess we’re stuck with Cisse, Perez and Armstrong then.

    Maybe it’s time to make Shola a new offer?

    And (repost), ‘Arsenal is a top club’ says our French international RB.

    Thanks Ashley, but where does that put Newcastle United?

    As far as Sissoko’s concerned, once Ashley gets the smell of more income, Sissoko’ll be out of the door quicker than a scouser leaves a convenience store!

    krull saves 2 pens if loris leaves spurs maybe they will bid but in all honesty he has not had the best season and is second or third choice for his country
    I cant see him leaving

    sissoko had a good season his all round game isn’t up to a top teams and when the likes of ribery are backfor france he will lose his spot if he builds on his good season we can sell for 20+ or 10 12 now
    cant see him going now but if he starts making noises about going expect the same stupid agreement that he can go in jan if price is met

    so Monday is doom and gloom day and were gonna sell the only good players we have left

    a little plus point krul while on international duty did say he couldn’t wait to get back here and start working with great new players we were signing
    colo met with the fat controller and backed down on wanting to move he either promised no more pards or some good players either way we win

    you see Mondays don’t have to be doom and gloom
    and just to pi55 me off I bet ed has posted a new article and this will be the last post

    Is the Lacazette deal dead or was that just the agent playing games? What do people expect our attacking options to be next season? I think we are looking at :

    CFs Cisse, A.N.Other

    Wide FWs and NO.10s Goofy, SDJ, HBA(might get one more season)

    Then the kids INC. Perez to get the odd game. Basically, we will be left a bit light up front IMO. Hope i am wrong

    Yes it is. Still less than Manure paid. I am surprised juve want him. Unless of course they have a space behind the striker for him, which is allegedly his best position. He did ok for everton there i suppose.

    On a lighter note, and completely off subject I see Gomis has been criticised by the Welsh press as he is delighted to have signed for an English club, and happy to be playing in England. Apparently Geography isn’t his strongest subject.

    he is a handful at set pieces and he has got goals in him but he is not a no10
    he thinks he is better further back but that’s not the case
    strange player when you look at it he should have stayed at everton he would have been a star for life

    Dark times at this club, we have gone backwards since Ashley took over, the amount of debt we are in has not gone down and we will never challenge for silverware under his ownership, I hope to god we don’t get a full SJP next season if we do he will never sell up.
