A Big Thank You Goes Out To Goalkeeper Tim Krul

On Thursday Tim Krul left the Tyneside club after 12 years on Tyneside in which he managed to play 185 times for the first team, and he was an excellent player for us and completely dedicated to the Newcastle cause.

We don’t want to miss out on Tim leaving and need to thank him for his sterling efforts for Newcastle in those long 12 years.

He will be remembered as a top goalkeeper, and we hope he does well at his new club, Brighton & Hove Albion, under Chris Hughton.

And maybe he will play at St. James’ Park again this season.

Many thanks, Tim.

    Feeding frenzy continues. Lots of posters (who were absent when the team was working hard and achieving results, repairing the damage of relegation) are coming back with thinly veiled “I told you so’s”.
    I like to try to live mostly in the present myself, but acknowledge others need to predict the future.
    I may well have missed things, I do that with varying regularity.
    But I am struggling to see the evidence for the precise timings of Rafa’s predicted exit. Where has he or anybody else been quoted

    My post on last thread was little jumbled (last line out of place) as I was quickly posting as I wait for family for a day out. Trust you will make sense of it anyhow . On second thoughts you struggle to make sense in your warped mind of the most straightforward of posts. Oh well can’t be helped when someone has an agenda 🙂

    ..saying he is leaving, oh but it may be now, Jan or the summer definitely.
    Twitter, people’s musings on this blog and other parts of the Internet, including journalists, are making wild leaps of fantasy.
    Some of the things being thrown around may turn out to have some element of truth in them but at the moment it’s all speculation. Journalists have been telling us we are talking to or even signing scores of players and that turned out to e bollox too.
    Bit of perspective needed, in my opinion.

    Cheers, and good luck. Something happened since the injury, maybe just not the same keeper – not sure what has happened. No doubt a resident medium on the blog will know all about it somehow 🙂
    Knowing the club’s modus operandi his wages were too high eh.

    JimmySmith (previous post ) – spot on and the true West Ham fans have had the heart and soul of their club and community ripped away from them. Even worse is that their club crest and badges had to have the word “London” added to the logo to remind tourists but not fans where they’re based ! The only justification for that is to reduce the shirt to tourist tat memorabilia to appeal to the one off tourist supporters who want a souvenir of old London town after their tick box visit to The London Stadium and Madam Tussauds. West Ham are a London franchise beholding to Sky like all PL clubs but second tier after Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs. Gold and co will sell up probably to the same investors we aspire to which is ironic but if West Ham are very lucky they might get Ashley if he sells up here. Perfict. It’s the last place on earth Rafa should contemplate. If he has an eye on a move then Arsenal springs to mind.

    As far as I know Rafa has not made any definitive statements regarding his personal position, rather he has expressed frustrations and concerns over the ludicrous nature of the transfer window and the ability to work with the restraints that we as a club clearly have.

    Reality is that we signed Atsu fast and that prevented any other club coming in for him later in the window which would have been a possibility. After that Rafa has made some astute acquisitions who I suspect were in fact number one targets all along because they are players we had identified, have potential to grow with the team and represented great value and compared to what’s happened elsewhere then that looks astute. The fact that we didn’t sign anyone for 34days actually speaks volumes and we have our target man in Joselu. Links with remote Argentina and Austrian players were surely just a smoke screen to keep press and punters interested in the soap opera of the Transfer window.

    We all get sucked into this Sky and PFL manipulated circus and look at the state of Arsenal and Liverpool’s blood pressure , we are not alone.

    Rafa is a true professional and will I’m sure now get on with motivating the new squad to be focused on the season ahead. After all the next window is only 16 weeks away.

    Bit of a curve ball this one – few bloggers couldn’t/can’t wait to get rid of Ashley and sell to a Chinese family/company. A word of warning…

    I don’t know if any of you read Private Eye – read ‘planet football’ at the back about the Chinese investors ie Southampton very interesting read about dodgy dealings and shifting monies about “those clubs’ fans’ dreams of unlimited funding may be just that, or worse.”

    Me I am quite happy with the window – yes we could have got another couple of players in and why would RAFA go to West Ham when he has built a decent team. His team which he can mold into a style of play he wants and a lot of the players he bought came because of him would be totally pissed off.

    Me was impressed the way we played Saturday (four players missing) – the best I have seen for a couple of seasons.

    Just wish everyone instead of being so negative get behind the TOON and give the manager and the players the support they need.
