Terrible Injury Update For Krul – Out For The Season


The Mail are reporting that Newcastle United have been dealt a major injury blow to first-choice goalkeeper Tim Krul who has been diagnosed with an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) knee  injury and is out for the rest of the season.

An ACL knee injury is a really bad injury which used to end careers not so long ago – so it really is a serious injury  if the Mail are accurate in their reporting.

The Mail report is that scans on the knee have come back and shown it is an ACL injury and he will be out long term.

Tim Krul – reported to have ACL knee injury

The 27-year-old came off in the 81st minute of the game during Holland’s 2-1 win over Kazakhstan last night and he looked in a lot of pain as he was being treated on the pitch and then on the sidelines.

Krul went for the ball in the 81st minute and seemed to fall awkwardly and twist his knee and it looked bad when he didn’t get up.

But then when he held his knee and the agony was shown on his face as he was given treatment on the field – it didn’t look good.

Tim was then shaking his head as the medics were taking a look at the knee and it was obvious he couldn’t continue.

That’s really bad news for the Dutch International.

In the short-term,  Rob Elliot will be in goal for Newcastle  at home to Norwich City next Sunday,  with 18 year-old Freddie Woodman being recalled from his loan spell at Crawley Town to be on the bench for the game.

Second choice goalkeeper Karl Darlow is already out injured with a foot/ankle injury with no return date on Physioroom.com.

Injuries are again decimating the Newcastle squad once again with 13 players listed as injured on Physioroom.com

It could well be that Tim is operated on in the US at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado where Ryan Taylor was eventually sent when he picked up the second of his two ACL injuries.

Dr. Richard Steadman is a recognized world authority on knee injuries and he has operated on Alan Shearer, Michael Owen, Ronaldo (Brazil), Ruud van Nistelrooy, Owen Hargreaves and Ryan Taylor among other top footballers.

This is very bad news for Tim Krul – that’s the first thing – and it’s also bad news for Newcastle United.

We hope Tim will make a full and complete recovery from this serious injury.

    Good! well, not good, but, not bad either. Can’t kick for love nor money, doesn’t command his box, not agile enough at getting down and generally just lackadaisical in manner. Another one that turns up when he feels like it. Gone slowly backwards since his emergence. To think some saw him as the next Van Der Sar! Pah!

    Didn’t Krul say in his tweet he was awaiting scans. I’d be surprised if they did one on a Sunday and how do the mail know?

    To be fair Krul tweeted 20 hours ago. He probably flew straight into a private hospital in London , the Mail could quite easily know the result of a scan.

    Jib Jibberish (the blog pest and part-time multiple) is obviously on the cheap cider already – his abuse of fellow bloggers has started early tonight.
    I envisaged him sprawled on his 1950’s stained settee, old cider bottles and beer tins strewn across the floor, coffee table nearby supporting an overflowing ashtray -not emptied for six months. Sticky carpet not hoovered for six months.
    Jib slavering at the gob as he swigs his White Lightening. He is wearing a cheapo tracksuit from SD emblazened with SAFC crests, urine stained in the crotch area. Within reach on the coffee table is his TV gadget and a selection of porno magazines to be used as soon as the adverts appear on the TV.
    If that wasn’t bad enough he knows nowt about football.

    We can’t be freaking out until we know for sure, but what does seem to be the case is that Krul will be out for at least the immediate term and we don’t have adequate cover for him. Elliot is average and is most likely a Championship player at best. Darlow is not even established at Championship level and Woodman is a kid.

    We need an experienced head to come in short-term in January if Krul is injured, someone who can come in and provide immediate cover. The alternative is to throw Elliot in as our number 1 for the rest of the season – which is not something I am overly comfortable with.

    Mr Tuff,

    I think it’s fair to say the guy has issues and probably just kinder to leave it at that.

    One of the best performances Krul ever had for the Toon was against Palermo in the Euro League he was 18 at the time the same age as young Freddy is now
    Woodman has played for England at every level up to U19 and looked OK on tour in the States , he’ll be OK for us on the bench , better than poor Jak Alnwick that’s for sure,

    Shocking when I read comments from the likes of hail wor a…..he’s happy that the best keeper at the club is injured, cites reasons of kicking etc but doesn’t stop to think about who replaces him. Krul is a decent keeper, not a world beater but for our level he’s very good, more importantly without him we are weaker.

    If Krul is out for the season he may well have played his last game for us. When we go down he’ll be sold no doubt about that.

    You could have the best goalie in the world behind our defence and it would hardly make any difference at all because our defence is THE worst in the premiership and the stats don’t lie

    Doesn’t matter if it’s freddie or Rob or Tim in nets..it’ll not make any difference.

    Dropping Colo should be the first step in putting our defence right…we might well suffer in the short term but as a young defender you only get better playing at the sharp end and it can’t be much worse than having Colo in there making mistake after mistake time after time after time.

    To be honest not many clubs have a keeper possibly on their way to the Euros as back up and prepared to stay as number two, I think we’ll be ok that way as long as he doesn’t get injured, has he not been injured twice now when coming in for Krul ?

    I agree, I’ve always said Elliot is a very fine number 2. Got bags of experience and is at the very least reliable.

    Could do a lot worse than have him between the sticks.

    Elliot is not as good a shot stopper as Krul, but his distribution is better and quicker.

    I don’t mind Elliot in goal, it’s the defence that worries me.
