Senior Player Issues Rallying Cry To Team Mates


The Newcastle team seems short of leaders again – just like last season – but a player who has been at the club for just over ten years has issued a rallying cry to other Newcastle players.

Tim has been talking on the Newcastle web-site today and his words seem so true.

Tim Krul rallying call to other players

This is what Tim has said:

“Everybody needs to grow now. We need to come out and show we are real men.   Chelsea and Manchester City are two massive games and we have to show that we’ve got the fight for it.”

“We need to be better than that, as a team and individually.” “Everybody has to look at themselves in the mirror and ask if they gave everything.”

“If not, they have to start straight away, because what we are doing at the moment is really not good enough.”

“A couple of players put in good performances but there were also some really bad ones.” “The team we put out was more than good enough to win this game, and they didn’t really trouble us.”

“But if you don’t score, you give them hope. That’s what we did and they took advantage.” “The goal was just a long ball which dropped down and the shot got a deflection to take it in.”

“That’s their game – the Championship long ball – but we knew that and should have dealt with it so much better.”

“It’s confidence,” “We are doing alright in some areas, but the end product just isn’t there.

“You have to be honest enough to say that we are getting up there and playing some good stuff to get there, but it’s all about the final quality in the final third, which just isn’t happening.

“I’m not just blaming the forwards though because we need to look at the whole team. Defensively we haven’t been on top form yet – nobody has been.”

Those are good words from Tim Krul, and here’s one player showing the leadership and passion that’s needed to turn Newcastle’s situation around.

Remember – it’s possible we will be in a  decent place in the league by the end of the year – but it’s going to take everybody associated with the club pulling together – and in the same direction.

    This muppet needs to look at himself aswell he has been terrible for a long time pulling the odd great save to keep the fans who know little about football saying what a top gk he is.

    I wonder if Steve Black was brought in to massage egos and get heads right because the club recognised overhauling an entire squad would take time and effect morale.

    Heard plenty of these rallying calls the last few seasons. Usually followed by another rubbish performance afterwards.

    Tsunki Ashley out isn’t going to improve the results of forthcoming football matches is it?

    when Alan Pardew left half way through last season Newcastle were 9th. why is there such a difference between then and under John Carver and Steve McClaren? the most significant change in this time has been the manager, not the chief scout, MD or owner. if a manager like Sam Allardyce (but not him obviously) became manager now do you think they wouldn’t be able to turn things around?

    I’m not saying that McClaren won’t be able to because I hope there is a rapid change of results for the better but it’s not looking good with every match that goes by.

    Watford have only lost 1 match this season which was away to Man City and West Ham have had some terrific results so it’s not as if these 2 defeats were against teams that haven’t started well.

    if Newcastle had taken 4 points from West Ham and Watford and played as well as in the first 4 matches the mood would still be reasonably positive. 4 points from the next couple of games and everything changes again.

    I am pessimistic because I don’t think McClaren is good enough but taking the opportunity to push long held agendas isn’t the immediate answer. the team and players should be good enough to be doing better.

    Saying that when Pardew left we were 9th is supposed to mean something? Like we were rock steady? On the up? Cup – bound?Not likely to extend our record losses against the mackems? Not characteristically go into free fall at any time towards relegation? What. Exactly?

    I have noticed mind that every single time there’s a ‘rallying cry’ or ‘dressing room inquest’, that the team seems to implode at an alarming rate.

    Is Mclaren going to announce once again that he is ‘happy with the response from his players’ in his pre-match interview, only for them to plunge to new depths of incompetence?

    As long as he keeps the grinning to a minimum then personally I’ll be grateful for small mercies.

    Now the rose tint is being applied the window on Pardew’s history. Looks like he did better with less support. Did better with a worse team. I swear some people think we are all goldfish. Pardew has had way better players than we have now. Way better. And I call not sacking an abusive and head – butt – attempting mackem -saving self -styled monarch of the dressing room pretty good support.

    The players don’t play as a team.
    The club is divided from the dressing room to the fans.
    There’s absolutely no connection anymore between the club and the fans which affects the atmosphere in and around the club.
    The club is insipid, soulless and drifting aimlessly without passion, direction or leadership.
    And we’ve been saddled with the dream team of the Wally and Cashley.

    Munster – nice to see you stick by facts. Nobody outside of Newcastle eh? And it’s not bile. it’s observation. For the record, I don’t care what he’s doing now, but rewriting his time here is beyond a joke when you’re trying to persuade those who remember it well.

    There’s something fundamentally off key. Surely pro players would play well to safeguard their value and careers? You’d think a reasonable proportion of them would at least.

    Amusing to think that some imagine that replacing Carr will immediately mean free spending on top flight proven players and subsequent success under the glorious rule of Ashley and his pup Charnley. Sorry I meant to type Amazing, not Amusing.

    My personal take on Pardew is that he was never a particularly likeable character, and a very average manager.

    Pundits and neutrals alike were disgusted by the way he conducted himself on the touchline, which makes the current Pardew love-in all the more bizarre. By that I’m not talking about the praise regarding his current stats at Palace, it’s the “Look at how you treated poor Alan” sentiment that just smacks of hypocrisy.

    He’s being given relatively free reign to do what he wants at Palace and good luck to him. Maybe he could have been successful at Newcastle, unfortunately he was shackled by an ownership which he was more than delighted to be shackled by.

    I suppose the endless batterings by the likes of Arsenal, Everton, Tottenham, City, our great local rivals etc didn’t really help things either.

    But that’s by the by. Pardew’s gone, and a line just needs to be drawn. It’s only because Carver was a billion times worse that we’re even looking at those days as if they were glory years.

    Tsun, no matter how hard you try to spin it, it doesnt matter. I have rarely/never come across a neutral journo who agrees with your rants. Pardew was a v er age….! He got us 5th and nearly relegated. He did ok in europa. Yes he cow towed to “the regime”, like many employees. Now he is highly respected at palace. So many screamed here that he would relegate them. All wrong tsunki, aaaal wrong. Yes i too hated the Readings etc but his remit here was compromised. You guys must hate that he came 5th. Yes we were a bit lucky but 5th is what happened along with the crap. As i saud, neutral journos just dont see your point. We

    Tsunki your analysis of carr is tainted by your anti ashley and anti pardew bile. Carr chose the manager. Carr chooses the players. Yes ashley is the overlord and he is a prik but carr is behind all the football machinations. He needs to improve big time. Or maybe mitro’s flawed character is pardews fault? Nite fellow NUFC fan, htl.
