Newly Married Player Seeking Newcastle Talks


We’re pretty sure that Alan Pardew was promised some decent money to spend in this summer’s transfer window before he surprisingly opted to join Crystal Palace at the end of last year after he was appointed by Chairman Steve Parish after the London club had fired Neil Warnock, and were third bottom of the league.

As we all know Alan moved Palace up to 10th place in the league 5 places above Newcastle and 9 points better off – so Alan did well in his first half season at his former club.

The latest news is that Pardew wants Tim Krul at the club – but in late April Alan denied that he was trying to get Tim – although that may have changed in the last couple of months.

Tim Krul – wants assurances from Newcastle

The news is that Tim – who was married to girlfriend Claire Hall earlier this month – wants to have a talk with new head coach Steve McClaren.

There’s nothing wrong with that, especially when another club is supposed to be after you,  and we expect Steve to be talking to a number of the players in the next couple of weeks.

Tim did not have a good second half of the season, but it was a nightmare time for both fans and players, so it’s probably best forgotten, with most players playing nowhere near their best.

Tim will also want to know who is going to be the goalkeeper coach – whether Andy Woodman is staying or he may leave to join Palace – and if that happens Eric Steele will be brought in.

We hope that Tim, stays on board at Newcastle, and that Newcastle have three good goalkeepers at the club.

Maybe that’s Tim Krul, Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow – because last season we had only two,  and young and inexperienced Jak Alnwick had to play for us for eight games.

Most top PL sides have three experienced goalkeepers simply because it’s such a specialist position – and Newcastle should start acting as a top club.

As we said, we hope Tim stays at Newcastle – he can be an excellent goalkeeper for us – and certainly doesn’t lack confidence, as he amply showed in that amazing performance in the World Cup last year for Holland.

And that game he played against Tottenham in late 2013 when we won 1-0 at White Hart Lane, was one of the best performances by a Newcastle goalkeeper ever – he looked unbeatable.

Tale a look.

    He’s gonna need a lot of persuading this time to stay after last season’s debacle .
    Reported fallouts with Colo, Playing with a joke of a defence in front of him.
    Yes I would suggest he is going to need a lot of persuading

    Wouldn’t be too bothered if he did leave as he has been suspect for a while now. He is a good keeper though and you couldn’t begrudge him a fresh start at a club who are ran professionally and have some footballing ambition.

    More importantly though it would be another shot in the foot for the club and further confirm how far we’ve fallen in recent times. Another indication of our fast sinking reputation. So in that regard I’d hope he’d be persuaded to stay.

    Bit harsh why o why…he did have the worst defence in the league sat in front of him and he was left exposed by very poor defending at least 5 times every game so as a whole I don’t think he did too bad.

    His distribution is dreadful but I’m sure a decent coach can sort that out…but he’s still a good keeper in my book and I’d like to see him stay

    IMO

    Krull hasn’t improved in 5years.

    Good shot stopper but the weakness in all other areas make him average at best.

    He can go for me, doubt he’d be missed.

    Can’t believe some of the comments here.

    Krul has been spectacular for us – and talk of bad games is pretty unfair really.

    Every player has good games and bad games but Krul has had considerably more good than bad and he’s getting a slating for it.

    If he had a decent defence to play in front of him it would be a different matter altogether.

    It’s completely unrealistic to think that for some reason the press, management, results are not going to take their toll on his performance.

    OK Tim isn’t a rubbish keeper, he has good and bad points, but the bad should have been coached out of him by now, hence why he was fired straight into the Dutch side and slowly slid down the order. I guess at best he’s third choice now, shame really, and not helped by having no confidence in his back four to play out safely from the back. As he is, no loss if replaced. Coached properly a real Keeper. In any sense of the word.

    Granted Krul made mistakes, But that is the problem with being a keeper, In that every mistake is highlighted ten fold.
    And it is hardly surprising when you consider how many times he unfortunately had to pick the ball out of the back of the net due the incompetence of our defence

    Krulls distribution is woeful, it’s been obvious for years. Any footballer with aspirations of playing for their national team should be able to recognise and work on their weaknesses or ask others on areas to improve their game.

    He doesn’t command his area at all and rarely tries to collect or punch the ball from a set piece.

    A lot of our defencive problems start with Krull, either he kicks the ball straight to them or because he hadn’t punched or collected from a set piece they have a chance to score. I don’t think he can jump higher than 3inches.

    There’s a hell of a lot more to goal keeping than shot stopping and Krull is poor in quite a few other areas, people are blinded by mom performances which are judged on shot stopping.

    He has loads of room for improvement IMO. There’s no difference in his play now than several years ago which is very disappointing as a lot of it is quite easy to work on.

    Not often OP and I agree but Tim’s finest moment was in Palermo 2nd November 2006.
    That prformance convinced the decision makers in the club that Krul was a better prospect than Frazer Forster.
    Whoops
