Pardew Wants Current Newcastle Star At Palace


Tim Krul was unsettled last summer, mainly because of Newcastle’s complete lack of ambition, so it will be interesting to see if the Dutch International goalkeeper will push for a move out of the club again this summer.

Tim Krul – is he unsettled at Newcastle?

Tim did not play well in the second half of last season, but not many players did under John Carver, and we expect that new head coach Steve McClaren will want to take a good look at all the existing players in pre-season, before he allows any one of them to leave the club.

The Sun is reporting today that Crystal Palace and Alan Pardew are willing to pay Tim £50K/week in wages – which it says he is seeking this summer – with his wages at Newcastle at the moment said to be around £30K/week.

The transfer fee mentioned is around £8M.

Pardew gave 27 year-old Tim his big break at Newcastle when he made the Dutchman our number one goalkeeper in place of Steve Harper for the 2011-2012 season, and Alan Pardew is a known admirer of the goalkeeper.

Tim has a contract at Newcastle which still has two years to run, and he will have new competition next season from 24 year-old Karl Darlow, who joins us from Nottingham Forest after a season on loan at Forest in the Championship.

Rob Elliot is also at Newcastle with up-and-coming goalkeeper Freddie Woodman next in line, and he’s very well thought of by the coaching staff.

In fact if Krul, Elliot and Darlow are the three goalkeepers next season, then Freddie could well be loaned out for the season to get first team experience.

We’d be very surprised if Tim pushes for a move now that Mike Ashley has said he wanted to win something and with Steve McClaren coming in and Newcastle want to increase competition for places at the club – including goalkeeper.

And if we sold Tim we would need to bring in another goalkeeper, so it would be a surprise if Tim is sold.

Krul joined us in the summer of 2007 as a 17 year-old from Den Haag, when Graeme Souness was Newcastle manager and the Dutchman has so far played 176 times for Newcastle.

What do you think?

    Not surprised that the silver fox has been linked with Krul but to be honest I’m not that worried about this link. I’m really surprised that Arrogant Utd haven’t been linked with Krul yet, especially as De Gea wants out and LVG rates Krul quite high.

    This BBC comment makes the FIFA scandal look tame. Fair play rules, ask Leyton Orient what they think about this ! No wonder West Ham can afford to splash the cash on new players – they’re being subsidised by the tax payer and local council. Another example of London doing what it wants irrespective of cost or as the article says transparency.

    “Converting the London Olympic stadium into the new home of West Ham United will now cost £272m, meaning the overall spend will reach £702m for the 54,000 seater arena – a lot more expensive per spectator than the £798m lavished on 90,000 capacity Wembley.
    The announcement served as a reminder of two principal concerns that continue to hang over the stadium: the amount of public money used to make the venue suitable for football, and what some regard as a lack of transparency.
    Certainly, the agreement that anchor tenants West Ham negotiated – to pay just £15m towards the conversion costs – looks more and more like the deal of the century.”

    it would be ironic if Krul did go to palace as I believe he has regressed horribly under Woodman, who hopefully is already on his way there.

    Pav for GK coach,

    How far behind are we behind clubs like palace. I think we’ll need about 30m in investment to match palace stature right now.

    Looks like McClaren has been Charnleyed:
    “I’m looking for the best,” McClaren told BBC Newcastle.
    “It can be difficult because good people are always working elsewhere. No doubt though, I want my team in by next week, with a good week to 10 days to prepare.”

    If AP wants TK at Palace, then I would let him go, straight swap for their Argie keeper, who I rate much higher than TK. Tim is a decent shot stopper, but he doesn’t dominate his area, and his distribution is shocking. At 27 he should have learned all this, but he’s another example of a promising youngster who hasn’t really fulfilled his potential.

    Krul is one of our so called stars I would sell, last season he was poor and his distribution of the ball is by the far the worst in the prem he can’t kick or throw the ball over arm.

    @28, exactly. Its annoying that he can only do short passes, usually to Colo, and we have to build again on every occasion. How I would love to see a keeper who would allow us the chance to hit teams on the break.

    This article is mainly about the splendidly named Davy Propper moving from Arnhem to Eindhoven (the reverse move was a bridge too far in 1944)
    It does mention that ourselves and Zenit Saint P are still in for Wijnaldum ,the Russians having offered 10 million euro .

    If we really are struggling to get an assistant manager over wage demands and Mclaren is comfortable with it then we are in for a long eight years or until W Brom or Stoke offer him a chance.

    We have been blindsided
    According to lots of reports this morning
    Saido Berahino has been our target all along.
    We are head to head with Tottenham for him ,who are getting so desperate they are now offering Lennon ,Townsend , AND cash.
    I hope Pulis tells him he would be better with McClaren than Pochettino

    McLaren should approach Solskjaer to be his assistant.

    If he doesn’t get his assistant in time, is it possible he could resign before the season starts?
