Tim Krul was interviewed after the 2-2 draw at Swansea on Saturday, and he wasn’t altogether happy, first of all because he wanted Newcastle to win, and he also thinks Newcastle should be a lot more ambitious – and thinks we should be in the top ten.
Tim Krul – he’s ambitious
Maybe Tim should tell that to the owner Mike Ashley – that’s certainly what the fans want – we must be more ambitious than just staying in the Premier League.
This is what Tim said:
“I’ve got mixed feelings if I’m honest, because I thought we could have snuck it at the end.”
“Don’t get me wrong, it was great to come back and to do that twice. When you go one down, confidence is low, then come back to 1-1 and do it all over again to make it 2-2, it’s a good thing.”
“But we can’t just be happy with a point because we should be fighting for spots in the top ten.¨ “Some people might have taken a point before the start of play, away from home at a team like Swansea, but not me. I’m more ambitious than that.¨
“However, we showed good spirit and that is a big positive to take from today.”
Maybe Tim was getting itchy feet at the end of last season, because he’s realizing he’s not going to go very far with Newcastle, in terms of playing in Europe or winning anything – not while Mike Ashley is the owner.
Newcastle are now 3rd bottom of the league after seven games, and above only newly promoted clubs QPR and Burnley, and we have to get some wins together if we are going to move up the table.
The best we can hope for from Mike Ashley is when we are struggling against relegation – which could be this season – Mike will do anything to keep us in the Premier League.
That’s so that Sports Direct can continue to have that free vehicle for their world-wide advertising – also known as Newcastle United.
If we are still around the bottom of the league come December, watch for players to come in permanently and/or on loan to fortify the squad – as Mike did a year last January, when we were in danger of being relegated.
That’s when we will see Mike really motivated to improve the side, but only to keep us in the Premier League, and he’s not interested in making Newcastle into a top six club.
That’s why he doesn’t belong at Newcastle.
